NYU Tandon’s Program in Machine Learning offers middle and high school students the opportunity to develop and apply practical skills in the cutting-edge fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
NYU’s Tandon Program in Machine Learning is a two-week online program that introduces middle and high school students to the data analysis, computer science, mathematical techniques, and logic that drive the fields of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). New and always improving applications in these fields are increasingly apparent in more aspects of our daily lives, such as interactive voice controls for homes; autonomous vehicles; real-time monitoring and traffic control; cutting-edge diagnostic medical technologies; and video and image recognition technologies.
This program offers students a unique opportunity to learn directly from some of today’s most innovative researchers in the field. Students will learn ML’s core principles such as model development through cross validation, linear regressions, and neural networks. They will develop an understanding of how logic and mathematics are applied both to “teach” a computer to perform specific tasks on its own and continuously improve those tasks along the way.
The program is suited for academically strong students who have an interest in computer and data science and the ways in which they are used in society to develop new capabilities, services, and products. No prior experience in computer science is required.
