UMBC and nonprofit AI4ALL have partnered to offer undergraduate students in any major the opportunity to apply to the Discover AI program, which will take place during the Fall 2023 semester.  Programming experience is not required. The ten-week program starts on September 29 and includes synchronous meetings on Fridays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and asynchronous instruction. No UMBC course credit will be given for participating in the program. You must apply online by September 18, 2023. 

What is AI4ALL Discover AI?

Discover AI is a virtual project-based program in partnership with UMBC that offers a hands-on introduction to computer science and artificial intelligence (AI), ethical issues surrounding AI implementation, and tech careers. In Discover AI, students work in groups on an AI/Machine Learning project based on real-life applications of AI that the students find curious.

Students get access to AI industry leaders and are guided through a roadmap to cultivate a future career in the AI industry. Through research, discussions, and reflection, you will explore the intersectionality of AI with other fields and articulate your own mindful perspective of AI. The following questions are proposed: What are both AI technology's positive and negative implications on society? How can (and does) AI affect communities in today's world? 


Why should students consider the AI4ALL Discover AI program?

Upon completion, participants receive an AI4ALL Discover AI certificate of completion and the opportunity to opt-in to Spring 2024's AI4ALL Ignite - a virtual accelerator that offers Undergraduate students the chance to work on an AI portfolio project with mentorship from AI industry experts. The accelerator also helps participants gain skills to set them apart in the AI internship application process.
