2019 Akademy.AI Scholarships for women in Artificial Intelligence
Deadline: June 20, 2019.
Currently, only 22% of the world’s AI professionals are women. At Akademy.AI we profoundly dislike this statistic and, as part of our AI ethics pledge, we are committed to ensuring future gender parity in the field. That is why we are offering a full scholarship for our 10 weeks AI Engineer Bootcamp.
The AI Engineer Bootcamp is an intensive, full time experience where you will start by learning the fundamentals of AI and go all the way to implementing your own neural network and applying it to a real world problem. Our commitment is to fully prepare you to get into a junior Data scientist or AI engineer role, and apply your knowledge towards positive contributions to society.
Solid Python experience or Computer Sciences degree
Unstoppable thirst for learning
Watery eyes when talking about AI’s potential for social change
1. Fill in the application form: This is your opportunity to state your purpose. Tell us why you can be a good ambassador of AI professional minorities and support the development of a more diverse and inclusive AI environment. Don’t be overwhelmed. We are not looking for impressive university results, neither perfect IQ scores. We are looking for an aptitude, for leaders with the common goal of identifying and addressing real human needs and uphold human values.
2. Create and share a public version of your statement of purpose. This can be a video, a story, a blog post, whatever best allows you to express your creativity and talent. And get the widest possible support for it.
3. Take the technical assessment for the AI engineer Bootcamp. This allows us to assess your technical level and make sure you have the prerequisite knowledge to fully benefit from the Bootcamp. (You will receive the assessment once you have applied)
4. Complete all those steps by or before the 20th of June, add a sprinkle of hope and expect our answer by the 23rd of June
