Event Details


mozAIrt is excited to provide the community an opportunity to learn about artificial intelligence (AI). At a time when AI and machine learning are changing the very fabric of society and transforming entire industries, it is more important than ever to give every student the opportunity to not only learn how these technologies work but also to think critically about the ethical and societal impacts of AI. Explore and discover a whole new world of Artificial Intelligence in a variety of ways. Get an introduction to AI, view examples, and participate in an interactive activity.

What you will need to participate: access to the internet, a computer or laptop, and an email address. A zoom link will be provided to you at least 24 prior to the class. 

Separate registration is required for each class. There are two opportunities to attend each session in case you missed one.
