NYU AI School

June 3 - 7, 2024

About

The NYU AI School is a week-long summer school on artificial intelligence and machine learning featuring hands-on labs and introductory lectures taught by leading experts. The school will run from June 3rd - June 7th, 2024.


Who should participate?
The school is primarily designed for first- and second-year undergraduates in NYC area who are interested in machine learning and AI. As the school is introductory, we do not expect students to have experience with these areas. In fact, we welcome students from backgrounds and majors outside of computer science, data science, math, statistics, etc. We also especially encourage students from underrepresented minorities to participate.
Hands-on programming labs are a core part of our curriculum, so having some programming knowledge (specifically Python) will help participants get more out of the school. However, programming knowledge is not required; the school will include a track for participants who are completely new to programming. Experience with typical undergraduate math (calculus, linear algebra) and statistics (intro probability) is also helpful, but not required.
As this school will be held in-person in New York City, we welcome students from NYC and nearby area universities.


Why should I participate?
Our goals for school participants are the following:
1. Introduce participants to machine learning and artificial intelligence: what is it and why they should study it.
2. Give participants a sense of what research and a career in machine learning is like in terms of subject matter and day-to-day work.
3. Present participants with a path to further study machine learning and pursue a career in the field.
To achieve these goals, we have designed our curriculum to give participants a view into cutting edge research and its applications in modern society, as well as hands-on experience with these concepts.


How is the school structured?
The school will consist of a mix of lectures, labs, research talks, group discussions, and office hours. Most days will run from 9:30am - 4pm ET and will include a morning lecture, followed by a lab, and concluding with a research talk or panel discussion with leading researchers.


Sounds great! How much will it cost to participate?
The school is entirely free!


Sweet! How do I sign up?
Interested students should fill out this application. Additionally, we recommend students take this diagnostic test in advance to get a sense of the programming and math background involved. If the test is challenging, that's ok! The school includes a track for less experienced students.


The school is organized by the members of the Machine Learning for Language Lab and is an updated version of the workshop last year.
