Develop Competencies with Practicum AI

Registration is now open for the first-ever offering of Practicum AI. The program runs Sept. 7 through Nov. 30.

Practicum AI is comprised of hands-on learning experiences designed to teach the coding skills and conceptual AI understanding needed to apply AI methods. The Practicum AI consists of a core set of modules as well as specializations in particular types of AI methods. UFIT is offering the first iteration of Practicum AI face-to-face, with the inaugural participants helping to guide and refine the program for future offerings. Anyone considering applying should note that additional work outside of class time is required to prepare and complete the exercises. For the fall 2021 program, Practicum AI participants are expected to have basic proficiency in Python.

Practicum AI enrollment is limited to 25 participants. The Sept. 7 introductory presentation, held via Zoom, is open to everyone. After the introductory presentation, remaining sessions will be on Zoom as well in person in the UF Informatics Institute seminar room on Tuesdays from 10:40 a.m. to noon.
