Founded by Mark Cuban in 2019
The Mark Cuban AI Bootcamps Initiative has hosted multiple free camps teaching AI to public school students in Dallas, Texas. Headstorm is proud to be a founding sponsor and even prouder to have taught at the inaugural bootcamp. Consults from Headstorm volunteer with data science experts from Walmart and Microsoft to help give students an amazing first experience with AI.
Over the course of five half-days, high-school students 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 use Microsoft’s cloud computing tools to build their own AI applications. By exposing high-school students to AI concepts normally taught at the collegiate level, the program aims to help those same students create innovative solutions from a younger, teenage perspective.
