🤔 AI@UIUC - Organization Information
🎶 You say that you wanna go to a land that's far away 🎶
[this page is updated concurrently]
AI@UIUC is the premier student-led artificial intelligence research organization at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, focused on fostering talent in AI by building, publishing, and collaborating within the field.
AI @ UIUC is split into two overarching teams: technical staff and research, segmented into smaller cohorts. We provide our members with access to doctoral and faculty advisors working to assist both teams as well as the required funding to ensure the success of every venture.
Our technical staff collaborates with industry and academic institutions alike to build tools and products that utilize and apply current advancements in the field of artificial intelligence. Our organization will ensure access to the necessary frameworks and models needed for any such endeavors.
With the assistance of doctoral advisors, research cohorts will run concurrent semester+ long research projects. These projects can vary in subject from computer vision to natural language processing. Each cohort will have its own advisors and necessary funding to leverage toward a publication at a peer-reviewed venue.
Due to the nature of our club’s mission, we are only able to provide our resources to a limited number of students. To ensure the success of every venture, we are adopting an application process for both teams. We welcome all students (undergraduate and graduate) who are interested in artificial intelligence to apply.
