Princeton’s first AI4ALL summer program takes on Fragile Families Challenge

Tuesday, Sep 18, 2018

Princeton’s inaugural AI4ALL summer program brought 32 rising 11th-graders to campus for an immersive residential camp, July 23 to Aug. 11. The program aims to bring young people from underrepresented groups into the growing field of artificial intelligence (AI), a branch of computer science that involves creating autonomous systems capable of processing human language, recognizing images or analyzing complex data sets.

The students learned the fundamentals of AI technology through lessons and hands-on exercises, and heard from Princeton professors working at the forefront of AI research in computer vision, cybersecurity and bioinformatics. They also delved into their own group research projects, with guidance from Princeton graduate students and recent graduates. One of these group projects was the Fragile Families Challenge.
