In October, Georgia Tech announced a partnership with Facebook that will make Artificial Intelligence (AI) education more accessible and increase ways into the field for diverse candidates. As part of the pilot program, Facebook is co-teaching and funding a deep learning course at Georgia Tech this semester. The social media company intends to scale this program to thousands of underrepresented students by building a consortium with 5-6 other universities, including minority serving institutions. “The Facebook lectures provide students with real-world examples and techniques that are needed to deploy and scale algorithms. This is something that students always ask me for, and being able to provide them this information from a large, well-known company that uses these algorithms to process billions of pieces of data per day is invaluable to our students’ education and growth,” said Zsolt Kira, associate director of the Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech.
