AI Studio

Our students are ready to build real-world AI and Machine Learning solutions. What will you challenge them to do?

AI Studio is the experiential learning component of Break Through Tech AI, an extracurricular program that helps women, non-binary, and underrepresented college students – with a focus on welcoming Black, Latino, Indigenous, first-generation, and low-income undergrads – gain the skills and experience they need to get jobs in data science, machine learning, and AI.

During Fall AI Studio, teams of 4-5 students are matched with a real-world Machine Learning Project Challenge from one of our industry partners. Each team receives guidance from a Challenge Advisor from their host company, as they apply what they’ve learned about building data analysis pipelines and training and validating ML models to their project. AI Studio helps students build their portfolio toward launching a career in tech while expanding peer and professional networks and honing teamwork and technical skills.

We are looking for Industry Partners to provide real-world ML Project Challenges for teams of Break Through Tech AI students in the New York City, Boston, and Los Angeles areas – and in our new Virtual program – to work on from August to December 2023. 

Hosting an AI Studio Project Challenge is an opportunity for your organization to share what you do, hear fresh perspectives, and get early access to recruit from a pool of talented and diverse CS/STEM majors in your region – all while providing your employees with a high-impact DEI volunteering and leadership development opportunity through serving as a Challenge Advisor.
