Teens In AI for Teens In AI

7c. Diversity in Tech Award

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.
