ICPSR: Latest update for Summer Program course formats

Happy 2020 Summer Program!

Today is the official beginning of the 2020 ICPSR Summer Program!

CIDR Workshop: Gentle Introduction to AI

This is an interactive workshop to introduce Humanists and Social Scientists  who would like to start exploring AI for their work. While we might take a peek at some computer code, no coding is involved and no prior knowledge of coding is required. You will get to know a typical workflow, review examples for how it might be used, and discuss the implications of models, data and ethical considerations.
