The Mark Cuban Foundation’s Artificial Intelligence Bootcamp will take place in Plano again this year, and applications for the free bootcamp are due soon.
The bootcamp is targeted toward high school students and will teach the basics of AI, including ethical implications, real-life applications, open source tools, and development of their own AI applications.
Students who want to apply should be in grades 9-12 and be able to commit to all four sessions of the four-week camp. No prior experience is required. The camp will be held on consecutive Saturdays from October 14-November 4 from 1-5 p.m.
The Mark Cuban Foundation will provide the bootcamp’s curriculum materials, train corporate volunteer mentors, food, information about transportation options and access to laptops during the bootcamp.
Applications are due Friday, September 8. The application includes 22 short-response questions that can be answered via written or video response.
The Plano camp will be hosted at Perficient, Inc. at The Campus at Legacy, 5340 Legacy Dr. #125.
