Emphasizing intuition, simple coding and applications AI for Everyone is suitable for all students regardless of their previous mathematical or computer science knowledge. Case studies will outline the coding software utilized and show how technology is used in practice. This program enhances students' digital literacy and highlights problem-solving. The program will be delivered across ten days covering a variety of topics including problem-solving and collaborative practices in technology, political applications, and professional life. This program continues our tradition of Duke experts sharing their cutting-edge expertise and thought leadership in advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning, directed by the vision of Dr. Carin. Since 2017, we have delivered 8 machine learning schools in 3 different countries to broad audiences of students, professionals, and academics, and presented 80+ learning experiences at Duke. AI for Everyone in the 2021 Winter Breakaway is an offering of the new Center for Computational Thinking (CCT). The mission of the CCT is to prepare Duke graduates to apply computational thinking to ideas, challenges, and opportunities while simultaneously considering the ethical, legal, and social impacts of technology on humans for the betterment of society.
