Stanford AI4ALL

Stanford AI4ALL aims to increase diversity in the field of Artificial Intelligence. During this three-week online program, students are immersed in AI through a combination of lectures, hands-on research projects, and mentoring activities.

  • Hands-On Learning: Engage in hands-on learning experiences and explore how AI tools can help make the world a better place.
  • Mentorship by AI Practitioners: Learn from outstanding professionals and researchers in the field.
  • Supportive Peer Community: Connect and learn with students who come from diverse backgrounds and who share a passion for AI.
  • Change the World: AI is everywhere. Help create the future by learning how to use AI to solve problems you care about.

Stanford AI4ALL Details

Participants engage with professionals in the field to learn about cutting-edge ideas, such as how AI can be applied in medicine, disaster response, and combatting poverty.

Mission & Goals:

  • We aim to educate and excite students about the field of Artificial Intelligence by providing exposure to a variety of AI topics. Students will not only go in-depth on some of the cutting-edge ideas in AI but will also explore the potentials of AI to improve society.
  • We aspire to help students foster personal growth through career development workshops, and mentoring.
  • We work with the Stanford AI Lab to provide students a hands-on experience with real, significant research projects.

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.

Curriculum Objectives

  • AI Education & Inspiration: Participants attend online lectures with Stanford faculty in CS, AI, and related fields.
  • Personal Growth: A key part of the program is small group mentoring sessions with AI faculty and senior AI researchers. Participants also attend online lectures by experts in career and personal development and social events with Stanford AI graduate students.
  • Hands-On Experience: Participants engage in small-group research projects led by graduate students and post-docs in Computer Science and AI. The research focuses on the societal impacts of AI and how AI can be used to address some of our world’s most pressing problems.

Online Classroom Technology Requirements

  • Computer: Participants will need to have daily access to a computer that is capable of running the latest versions of internet browsers, plug-ins, and software.
  • Internet Connection: Participants will need to be connected to high-speed internet that will support interactive audio and video.
  • Webcam: Participants should have a webcam to support daily participation in class.
  • Microphone: If you are using a laptop with a built-in microphone, we recommend that you use headphones during live class sessions to avoid echo or feedback. If possible, we suggest that you use a USB-based headset with a microphone for clear audio when participating in class.
  • Suitable Learning Environment: Do your best to choose a comfortable, distraction-free learning space for the live class meeting times. Keep in mind that the setting should be appropriate for interacting with instructors and fellow students on camera.
