Penn State's Institute for CyberScience has awarded $367,632 in seed funding for projects designed to use machine learning and artificial intelligence to assist the public good. The grants support projects in 20 different departments and units, 10 colleges and three institutes.
Penn State students, faculty and staff are invited to compete for $100,000 in funding during the Nittany AI Challenge. The challenge, sponsored by the Penn State EdTech Network, will give participating teams the opportunity to explore artificial intelligence in higher education to improve the student experience at Penn State, solve real-world problems at the University, and generate startup ideas. The deadline for idea submissions is Jan. 29.
