We are excited to expand our inaugural 2021 Google exploreCSR (computer science research) workshop from one weekend into a 6-week series this coming Spring 2022 to give students underrepresented in computer science research an opportunity to connect with one another, with ASU faculty, and with the SolarSPELL initiative. This year’s series will look at computing for good through the lens of machine learning.
Learn about machine learning-related challenges that the SolarSPELL initiative faces; brainstorm solutions to those; and pitch your team’s proposed solution to receive feedback from a panel of guests from Google.
Students who complete the series will be eligible for summer fellowships to develop solutions proposed in the workshop. Two positions will be open for application after the end of the series. Fellows will receive a stipend at the end of the summer.
A week-by-week summary appears below; we hope this extended format will allow deeper development of ideas and engagement with peers, faculty, and other guests.
