Join us this Summer 2021 for a fun-filled, project-based learning in the FIRST Artificial Intelligence camp. The camp will promote interaction and exchange of ideas between AI researchers, practitioners, and students. Following the camp, the most promising high school students will be offered semester-wide internships with an intention to promote their interest in further education and translational AI research.
The AI camp will include:
Lectures by AIISC faculty on topics of AI applications (mainly in healthcare, education, social and economic development), AI in gaming, AI in robotics, and AI and Ethics;
Coding training in Python by an instructor that well involve the use of a popular toolkit;
Exercises supervised/mentored by AIISC associated undergraduate and graduate students, including a simple chatbot development;
Hands-on demos of substantial AI applications developed at the AIISC.
No prior programming experience is required, but coding experience is a plus.
Students are encouraged to bring their laptops. If any student is unable to bring one, the organizers can provide one at nominal charges.
In-person classes will take place at:
Artificial Intelligence Institute
University of South Carolina
1112 Greene Street, Room 513
