AI Project Teams:
This year, the Projects portfolio of Western AI was highly active and successful! During the summer, we organized an 8-week program to guide and mentor 80 current and incoming Western students in creating machine learning algorithms to develop technical and teamwork skills. Then, during this past semester, we engaged over 100 students in our beginner/intermediate (“Gideon”) projects stream where they learned how to implement a variety of machine learning concepts using Python. In addition, we established the first “varsity hackathon team” (called “Ad Astra”) where some of the most highly-ambitious students at Western collaborated to elevate each other’s knowledge and compete together in various hackathons.
