Global AI Student Conference is an online streaming event, organized by Global AI Community and Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors. The conference is being held for a second time; last time it was attended by more than 2500 people from all around the globe. You can check our sessions from the previous conference to get inspired to the upcoming event.

The main audience for this conference are students: both those who are just doing their first steps in AI, as well as more experienced ones. In fact, we call it "a conference organized for students, by students" - because it is largely organized by Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors community. 

All conference sessions are 30 minutes each, to accommodate comfortable online viewing. They can be grouped into 3 categories:

  • 9 introductory sessions on AI, ranging from different ML algorithms, to Low Code/No Code ways to train your neural network model using visual tools. This section is coordinated by Kunal Kushwaha, founder or "Code for Cause" YouTube channel, where you can find a lot of introductory materials on AI and ML. 
  • 5 research sessions, in which students will describe their own projects in the area of AI and ML. You can check out complete schedule
  • 2 roundtables:
    • In "How students can start with research, and why it is important" session we will discuss the best ways for students to start their research career. We will hear stories from students, doing research internships at large IT companies, as well as from university professors.
    • A session "Grow your skills and empower others as a Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador" will focus more on Student Ambassador program. You will hear from Global program director, Pablo Veramendi, as well as from student ambassadors themselves.

We believe this conference is a good way for students both to make their first steps into the world of AI, and to get inspired by what other students are doing. Therefore we encourage our readers to share this news with students, and we would welcome them to join the conference as well.  It is recommended to register, but one can also join live streaming on conference site on Saturday, April 24th!
