Overview of AI HUB
AI HUB Scientific Research Project
AI HUB was founded by Columbia University and Harvard University alumni to provide Chinese students with a research and academic background upgrade. AI HUB courses feature the latest trends in research methods, sometimes combining data analysis or artificial intelligence with a specific research area, should it be astrophysics, healthcare, psychology, etc.
At present, AI HUB has served more than 5,000 students and more than 200 courses have been set up. The academic expert committee is composed of cooperative tutors from top universities in Britain and the United States. We have 18 overseas laboratories, and more than 600 mentors from prestigious British and American universities.
As the most ambitious initiative that we have designed with the mission of fostering the new generation of top researchers and engineers, AIHUB serves as an intensive project-based learning program that selects and helps incredibly gifted Chinese high school students and college students who want to explore academic interests beyond school curriculums and extend their potentials by mastering essential research skills.
Our AI HUB features a cluster of intensive courses focusing on interdisciplinary studies in science, engineering, social sciences, and humanities. These programs are taught on-site for a period of 2-3 weeks. The goal of this program is to create a space where students can receive mentorship from our faculty, where professors can also enlighten students’ academic interests and career choice.
During the 2019 summer AIHUB worked, 7 professors from the top universities in the US and more than 100 students all over the world participated in this exciting project in Beijing. Numerous positive feedbacks regarding this program were collected from our past students and all professors who flew to China to work with us the whole summer. Due to COVID-19, we have to halt all on-site programs, including AIHUB in 2020. Nevertheless, AIHUB expanded the scale and developed partnership with the top universities, research centers and labs across the world in the past year.
This year, we are happy to announce that AIHUB is COMING BACK! About 10 leading U.S and UK Professors, tens of teaching assistants and hundreds of students will be working together at AI HUB in this summer in Shanghai.
