No prior programming or CS background required, but an interest in AI is appreciated.
Students with programming experience will be placed in an advanced batch.
Prior to the camp, a survey will be sent to help place participants in the appropriate batch based on background and project interests.
The curriculum, designed and taught by Stanford AI academics and alumni, encourages experiential learning.
Student teacher ratio of 12:1 to provide a personalized learning experience.
Stanford design-school inspired approach to stimulate creative thinking.
Application open for select batches.
Some of our batches are currently full, you may apply for an open batch or add yourself to the waitlist for a batch that is full.
Applications are processed on a rolling basis, and students will hear back within 3 days of applying.
Program Fees: ₹75000
Admitted candidates will receive payment details by email.
AI Project: Students present their project to parents and guests on the final day. They complete a shareable digital poster and receive suggestions on taking the project forward.
Certificate of Achievement: Students are awarded a certificate for the successful completion of the camp on the final day, signed by our faculty and advisors.

CS & AI in College: Learn about the best courses to take and projects to undertake to prepare for admission to a top-ranked CS program in the US.
AI Entrepreneurship Challenge: Engage in an experiential session on pursuing AI ventures and compete in an ideation competition.
AI for Social Good Project
Projects will draw inspiration from topical examples such as the ones below.
AI for Eye Disease Diagnosis
Diabetic retinopathy is a dangerous eye condition that can lead to blindness if untreated. Detecting the disease typically requires a specialist eye doctor, and only 11 eye doctors exists for every 1 million people in India*. The use of computer vision based Artificial Intelligence models can automate this process allowing significantly more patients to be screened. We would work with deep learning models for detecting various health conditions.

AI for Distracted Driver Detection
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 3,450 people were killed in 2016 due to motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Innovations in Smart Car trends using AI allow distracted driver detection through a dashboard camera that can alert drivers in dangerous situations (e.g. when falling asleep). We would build deep learning models that allow us to accomplish such tasks.
AI for Predicting Crop Outputs
Crop yield forecasting plays a vital role in ensuring farmer security. Uncertain yields can lead to uncertain prices, and often leave farmers in a devastating predicament. Using satellite imagery we can predict crop yields much before they actually occur. This project would guide students to build a computer vision model to do so.
AI for Disaster Relief Improvement
Natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, etc. are times when aid needs to be provided urgently. Due to the volume of SMS messages, Tweets, Facebook posts, and newspaper articles, it can be a significant challenge to process these requests in a timely manner. The speed of processing can be the difference between life and death. AI models can be used to efficiently determine whether a message is actually a request for aid, and if so, can accurately classify the aid as food, clothing, water, etc. so that requests can be appropriately routed.
