The Machine Learning Bootcamp Exclusively for high-school students. Taught by Stanford lecturers and TAs.
Accelerate your journey into machine learning.
In an increasingly tech-dominated world, machine learning is fast becoming the future. In the last 5 years, the number of jobs in machine learning has increased tenfold!
We are a group of lecturers, TAs, and graduate students from Stanford University interested in helping develop the next generation of ML scientists. We are excited to offer intensive 2-day bootcamps on a variety of ML topics to jump-start your machine learning skills. Registration is live for our Winter 2018 bootcamp.
Who is it for?
The bootcamp is for high school students with at least 1 course of programming experience, or equivalent.
When is it?
The bootcamp is scheduled for the December 1st weekend. It runs from 8:30am to 3pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Where is it?
The bootcamp will be held in the Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto. We will be in room A6.
Build skills that you can apply anywhere.
Students will learn the fundamental principles behind machine learning, specifically focusing on supervised learning. These principles include featurization, model evaluation, parameter tuning, regularization, and much more.
In addition, students will become familiar with a variety of Python libraries, such as NumPy, Scikit-learn, and Keras. A more detailed curriculum as well as optional pre-bootcamp reading will be sent to all registered participants the week before the bootcamp.

During the bootcamp, students will be provided with a variety of open-source and proprietary datasets. Some of the projects may include predicting malignancy of tumors based on breast cancer data, detecting bias in natural language text, and predicting a customer's future purchases based on their shopping history.
During the second day of the bootcamp, we will also allow students to develop their own projects and receive feedback on their ideas.
For information on opportunities after the bootcamp, see our FAQ.
