Inspirit AI offers an interdisciplinary, project-based artificial intelligence education taught by Stanford, MIT, and top university graduates
What do self-driving cars, Alexa, iPhone's face recognition technology, and ChatGPT have in common? They are driven by modern advances in artificial intelligence. Whether you’re interested in law, healthcare, art, or economics, AI is poised to transform every discipline and industry in the future. AI is already all around us today, and by the end of the program, students will understand the underlying concepts and motivations behind technology such as computer vision, natural language processing, and neural networks.
In this course, we will explore the foundations of machine learning and explore different applications of machine learning models. In the first half of the course, students learn AI’s core technologies including applications, foundational concepts, and programming tools through live lectures and coding labs. Students will not only learn about different types of machine learning models but also apply those models to real data sets. In the second half of the course, students will complete an instructor-led group project applying AI to the discipline of their choice (e.g., music, healthcare, astrophysics, finance, etc.), utilizing the programming skills they developed in the first half.
Machine Learning Talks
Learn about machine learning algorithms and techniques in a uniquely interactive, engaging format, before you apply that knowledge in live coding labs.
Hands-On Python Coding
Develop valuable Python, machine learning, and artificial intelligence skills in our hands-on coding labs, using cutting-edge research to solve real-world problems like breast cancer diagnosis, building self-driving cars, and more.
In our AI for Social Good project, students will be able to apply their newly acquired talents in a collaborative, challenging environment, applying AI to a domain they’re passionate about (e.g., music, healthcare, astrophysics, finance, etc.). Students can use these projects in their résumés and college applications.

Conservatory Information Summer Conservatory students spend two weeks preparing a complete production with a performance on the last evening. This year’s show is the operetta Once Upon a Hamster with music by Arthur Sullivan and words by Renee Davis Brame and Sarah Squire. Each student is given a role or roles within the show, and the two weeks are spent in vocal coaching and staging sessions. Workshops are presented on various aspects of performance production. The rehearsal process concludes with a fully staged performance on the evening of the final day of the Conservatory session. *Registration will occur after casting. cost: $600
