Making a positive world impact through technology and diversity
The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has opened its lab doors with a program aimed at young women who are in 9th grade at the time of applying. Founded by Olga Russakovsky and Fei-Fei Li, female leaders in Artificial Intelligence, the two-week, residential program provides both broad exposure to AI topics through faculty lectures and industry field trips, as well as an in-depth experience with a research area through hands-on projects. Mentoring and career/personal development sessions with faculty, researchers, and graduate students further enable personal growth and an opportunity to explore career interests in AI. We are committed to serving students of all financial backgrounds.
The program has three main objectives:
- To simultaneously educate and excite students about the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) by providing exposure to a variety of AI topics, discussing in-depth some of the cutting-edge AI research and exploring the societal impacts of AI.
- To foster personal growth through career development workshops, mentoring and social events.
- To provide students a hands-on experience with real research projects in the AI Lab.
The program also aims to build a close-knit community and encourage interest among underrepresented populations in the field. Program attendance will be limited to reflect these goals.
