Accelerate your journey into machine learning.
In the last 5 years, the number of jobs in machine learning has increased by a factor of 10.
A4 Bootcamps are always taught by graduate students in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford. Our instructors are passionate about educating the next generation of machine learning scientists. A4 is proud to offer intensive weekend-long bootcamps on a variety of machine learning topics!
We hold bootcamps on the second weekend of every month, starting in March 2019. Registration is open for March 9-10, April 13-14, and May 11-12.
Who is it for?
High school students with 1 CS course of experience, or equivalent.
When is it?
From 8:30 AM to 3 PM, Saturday and Sunday. See the registration page for dates.
Where is it?
The Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto. Room details will be sent out prior to the bootcamp.
Build skills that you can apply anywhere.
Fundamentals
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.

Applications
During bootcamps, students will be provided with a variety of open-source and proprietary datasets. Some examples of projects are 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 allow students to develop their own projects and receive feedback on their ideas.
For information on opportunities after the bootcamp, see our FAQ.
