Who we’re looking for

The Generative AI Council at the Center for Academic Innovation (CAI) is looking for students to assist in the development and prototyping of machine learning and artificial intelligence based applications that aim to enhance the development of learning experiences. This project will involve exploring classification and optimization problems, developing a classifier solution for working with large quantities of video content, primarily through the use of GPU-accelerated neural networks. Knowledge of Python and key machine learning software libraries such as Tensorflow and PyTorch is required. Depending on the applicant and changing needs of the project, C++ and GPU programming skills may be necessary.

Student Qualifications

  • Currently pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s degree in data curation, data science, computer science, statistics, informatics, or a related field

  • Demonstrated ability to be self-directed and work independently or as part of a rapidly changing, multidisciplinary, multicultural, and collaborative environment

  • High level of attention to detail

  • Experience with Python

  • Experience with Tensorflow or PyTorch running in a GPU-accelerated environment

Desirable Qualifications:

  • Familiarity with UI design

  • Familiarity with data documentation

  • Prior projects utilizing Machine Learning with video data, Tensorflow/Pytorch with C++, or GPU/parallel programming are a plus

How to Apply:

Please complete and submit the Student Fellowship Application and upload the following required documents:

  • Cover letter or Statement Response to the following question
    • What areas in the domain of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning interest you, and how do you see working on projects of this nature building your skillset in this space?
  • Resume
