MehtA+ Machine Learning Bootcamp

MehtA+ Machine Learning Bootcamp is held virtually every summer for 8th-12th graders (ages 13-18) located anywhere in the world interested in learning university-level computer science concepts (programming, AI/machine learning and data visualization) and its application to the humanities. Students complete a research project with like-minded individuals under the guidance of faculty members of prestigious universities.

Camp Description

MehtA+ Digital Humanities Machine Learning Bootcamp will be taught by MIT, Stanford and Columbia alumni.

This six-week interdisciplinary summer bootcamp will provide students with expert instruction in cutting edge university-level AI/Machine Learning, which students will then apply to projects run by professors from top US and International universities, including University of Bologna (Italy), University of Buffalo SUNY, Northeastern University, Haverford College and Kenyon College among others. Students will potentially receive an opportunity to have their work published in professional academic journals.

Daily Schedule

Class will be held every day on the weekdays from 9am CST - 1 pm CST. Classes will consist of a combination of lectures that will emphasize the theory and application of AI/machine learning in the humanities as well as group activities.

Students will be assigned mini assignments almost every day, which they are expected to complete in order to participate in the final project - a digital humanities machine learning research project with one of our partner universities.

In addition to the assignments, students are expected to spend the rest of the day working on their final project, thus making the expected commitment full-time. We do not recommend students partaking in any other major extracurricular activities during the summer.

The camp will conclude with a conference the evening of July 29th at 7pm CST, where students will be presenting their project to parents and distinguished faculty members.

Instructors will hold optional office hours almost every evening and will be available on Slack 24/7 to answer questions that students have.
