Teens In AI is an Acorn Aspirations initiative and was launched at the UN AI for Good Global Summit on May 2018 by its founder, Elena Sinel. Elena created the Teens In AI movement to increase diversity and inclusion in artificial intelligence by encouraging teenagers to learn about AI for social good sooner rather than later.
We aim to democratise AI and create opportunities for underrepresented talent. We do this through a combination of:
- expert mentoring
- talks & workshops
- hackathons, bootcamps and accelerators
- company tours
- networking opportunities
Our vision is for AI to be developed by a diverse group of thinkers and doers, advancing AI for humanity’s benefit.
“This is a wonderful organisation thinking consciously about how they can make an impact – executing activities with great visibility and inspiring others around them to do similar projects.”
