Applications for camp that offers free world-class AI education to help prepare students for latest tech evolution are now open

PHILADELPHIA, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Mark Cuban Foundation, in partnership with CSL, is bringing the only artificial intelligence (AI) camp of its kind, free of charge, to high school students in Philadelphia. With a custom and highly-relevant curriculum focused on teaching students about the latest developments in the world of AI and Generative AI, the camp will provide the tools to make these technologies work for them and promises to educate, inspire and fuel the next generation of AI professionals.

These AI bootcamps are introductory and accessible to student in grades 9-12 with an interest in technology. Students do not need any familiarity with computer science or programming to attend. Over the course of three half-days, students will learn what AI is and isn't, where they already interact with AI in their own lives, the ethical implications of AI systems, and much more. Students also learn how to utilize ChatGPT via tailored inputs and use Microsoft's cloud computing tools to build their own AI applications.

“As AI continues to become an undeniable force in all of our lives, it’s crucial that we open the door to this knowledge, especially to young people who want to explore it,” said Mark Cuban, founder. “While technology expands and becomes more advanced,  it becomes more critical that we ensure our students are prepared when they apply for schools or jobs in the future. Thanks to our work with CSL, the bootcamp will offer an avenue to explore this fascinating field of technology to any student, no matter their means.”

This year’s bootcamp, taking place in Philadelphia on November 2nd, 9th, and 16th is hosted and staffed by CSL.
