Northrop Grumman is excited to host the second fully virtual student challenge this semester! Participation includes video chat mentoring sessions, a midpoint review, office hours, and a virtual final symposium in May.
Due to the pandemic, there has now been a push towards automation, workforces have had to shift to working remotely, and there is now an increased reliance on artificial intelligence and machine learning tools across multiple industries.
The challenge objective for this semester is to develop an AI application that can be used to solve or mitigate real-world issues that were created by the pandemic. Students will be provided with an Edge Computing NVIDIA Development board to help them complete this task. Students with some programming experience are preferred, but there is no major requirement.
All events will take place online. Links to attend will be sent to registrants.
