Online Summer Program Exposing Students to the Field of Artificial Intelligence

As the field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to make a big impact in the world, researchers and educators at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) believe that to develop inclusive, humanistic, and benevolent technologies, the field of AI needs to include students, researchers, and technologists from all walks of life.

With that vision in mind, SAILORS (short for the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory’s Outreach Summer Program) was created to expose high school students in underrepresented populations to the field of artificial intelligence. The program has since been renamed Stanford AI4ALL, with the long-term mission of training a more diverse generation of technologists who have humanistic goals.

In support of that mission, Stanford AI4ALL seeks young, motivated and eager students in ninth grade (raising tenth graders during the summer) to participate in the Stanford AI4ALL Camp, a three-week online summer program that immerses students in AI through a combination of lectures, hands-on research projects, and mentoring activities. Participants engage with professionals in the field to learn about cutting-edge ideas, such as how AI can be applied in medicine and disaster response, and in combating poverty.

The online summer program will take place from July 8, 2024, to July 26, 2024. The application deadline is February 20, 2024. Financial aid is available.
