Learn Artificial Intelligence from Experts!

CyberMath Academy’s Summer AI Camp in Boston, MA is a selective summer program for students who would like to learn AI algorithms and skills in the inspiring and motivating atmosphere of an Ivy League College. Our AI camp provides a challenging environment in summer for students in which they learn Artificial Intelligence with the participation of brilliant students from all over the globe.

Outstanding Teachers!

Summer AI Camp instructors will be some of the instructors listed on our faculty page or other outstanding teachers with similar credentials.

Igor Ganichev

Dr. Ganichev is a member of Google Brain Team, working on TensorFlow. Dr. Ganichev holds a PhD from University of California, Berkeley and two Bachelor Degrees from MIT, one in Mathematics and one in Computer Science. Dr. Ganichev participated in the International Math Olympiads (IMO) during his high school years three times, and won a gold medal (2001) and two silver medals (2000, 2002).
 
 
 

Nicholas Pascucci

Harvard, MIT Campus Tours and Lab Visits

Harvard and MIT Campus Tours and laboratory visits are scheduled each year.

Sightseeing

We will visit the historical places to see first-hand where the United States was founded and learn about its history. Walk along The Freedom Trail, try many tastes at Quincy Market, when tired of walking hop on a Duck Tour and take a walk along Charles River. Feel smarter (pronounced SMAHTAH) at Harvard Square.

Topics to be Covered

Our camp introduces students to machine learning and programming through projects. They learn about and program different machine learning algorithms to recognize, process and classify images acquired through the cameras on a self-driving car and make a self-driving toy car.
– Students will learn common algorithms, generate Python code and deploy it to a microcontroller controlling the servo motors.
– They will learn about autonomous driving and microcontroller programming through a hands-on experience.

Our program consists of lectures on machine learning methods and algorithms. Students will be introduced to Python programming, and will use it to program and deploy their algorithms.

Object detection and mapping algorithms will be among the ones students will start with. They will first use provided pictures and then take pictures of physical objects to use for computer vision projects. They will train their own classification algorithms to recognize these objects including neural networks. Once their algorithms work flawlessly, they will deploy their program into a toy car which has cameras and will self-drive using the neural network they programmed.

  • by Felix You-GitHub

    Students will start by programming their self-driving cars to drive on a straight line. They must create a control algorithm for their car move in a straight path. Then, they will need to make their cars detect turns and drive around oval-shaped tracks. 

  • After mastering the straight lines, turns and oval-shaped tracks, they will program their cars for random and complicated tracks which contain long straight parts and sharp turns.
  • During all these, students will practice engineering design, algorithm creation, testing and debugging.

Algorithm design, code generation, deployment, testing and debugging is a common procedure employed in rising AI industries such as automotive, aerospace and other industries.
