Students will visit the Afiniti offices in Washington DC, where they will participate in a hands-on workshop introducing them to the basics of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML). Students will explore three AI experiments, including trying their hand at Rock, Paper, Scissors against Afiniti’s AI bot and teaching a machine to learn to recognize and distinguish between objects and sounds! Afiniti mentors will give a brief introduction to Artificial Intelligence, and students will have an opportunity to hear from a panel of AI/ML professionals, followed by a Q&A session. All students who attend will receive Afiniti swag!
