Students interested in working with artificial intelligence are invited to attend the Nittany AI Challenge Celebration Event from 5-8 p.m. Sept. 10 in Heritage Hall in the HUB-Robeson Center at University Park. Students can register to network with AI professionals, enjoy a free meal, get inspired to create teams for the 2020 challenge, and see which projects from the 2019 challenge have been awarded additional development funding.
Penn State's Institute for CyberScience has awarded $367,632 in seed funding for projects designed to use machine learning and artificial intelligence to assist the public good. The grants support projects in 20 different departments and units, 10 colleges and three institutes.
Ten student teams at Penn State will receive $1,500 from the Nittany AI Alliance to move on to Phase Three of the Nittany AI Challenge. Teams competing in the challenge are directed to use the prize money to create a minimum viable product using the artificial intelligence platform of their choosing to address real-world problems facing students at the University.
