MIAMI, July 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Argo AI, a global autonomy products and services company, will host a Mark Cuban Foundation Artificial Intelligence (AI) Bootcamp for high school students this fall at Miami Dade College’s AI Center located in North Campus. The no cost AI Bootcamp in Miami for high school students will introduce underserved students in grades 9 through 12 to beginner AI concepts and skills.
Argo AI is one of 20+ host companies selected to host 30 camps across the US in Fall 2022. The Argo AI Bootcamp will be held over four consecutive Saturdays starting on October 22nd and ending on November 12th.
Student and parent applications are now open at markcubanai.org/application. Students do not need any prior experience with computer science, programming, or robotics to apply and attend.
Throughout the AI Bootcamp, students will learn what artificial intelligence is and where they already interact with AI in their own lives. Students will benefit from volunteer mentors and instructors who are knowledgeable about data science and able to help students quickly understand material normally taught at a collegiate level. As part of the 5-hour curriculum, students also get to work in Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, each day to build their own AI applications related to chatbots, computer vision, machine learning, and natural language processing.
The Mark Cuban Foundation provides the bootcamp’s curriculum materials, trains volunteer mentors, and recruits and selects local students to attend camp. In addition, the Mark Cuban Foundation and Argo AI work together to provide food, transportation, and access to laptops for students at no cost throughout the duration of Bootcamp.
Founded by Mark Cuban in 2019, the AI Bootcamp initiative has hosted free AI bootcamps for students across several US cities, including Dallas, Pasadena, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Atlantic City, among others. The Mark Cuban Foundation has impacted 450+ students to date and has a goal to have 1,000 students graduate from AI Bootcamps Program in 2023.
