Mark Cuban’s “AI Bootcamp” for underserved students coming to Birmingham and Raleigh

The Mark Cuban Foundation has selected Birmingham and Raleigh as host cities for its “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Bootcamp Program.”

Focused on underserved students in grades 9-12, the program utilizes volunteer instructors knowledgeable in data science to help students understand material normally taught at a collegiate level including completing lab exercises that contextualize the tech and use Microsoft Azure AI Tools.

“We know how much untapped talent exists within our local communities as a direct result of lack of access to opportunity and resources,” said Yvette Medina, Director of the Mark Cuban Foundation’s AI Bootcamp Program.
