Trustworthy AI

As AI continues to become more ubiquitous, it impacts users on a variety of levels. AI developers need techniques to ensure their models are working correctly. Stakeholders need oversight to ensure the models they deploy are fair to all parties. And consumers, the end users of models, may need tools to trust the AI when making decisions. Explainable AI (XAI) offers the promise of transparency and the capability to simplify complex AI models to be interpretable to humans. In this course, participants will learn to leverage cutting-edge data visualization techniques to enable intuitive comprehension of the complex data associated with AI systems.

Practical Text Mining

Text mining technologies are reshaping how we engage with the overwhelming wealth of textual data bombarding us every day. Powered by the latest advances in machine learning, organizations are building capability in automatically identifying meaningful structure in many different sorts of textual data for a wide range of business and consumer applications. In this program, participants will gain a broad understanding of the algorithms that drive machine learning, along with a conceptual schema for understanding how to break a machine learning problem down into sub-parts and identify algorithms across paradigms (e.g., deep learning, graphical models, Support Vector Machines) that address the associated sub goals.

Micro-Robotics

Small biological systems have evolved to utilize remarkable features for motion and locomotion; they achieve extraordinary accelerations, speeds, and forces that can be repeated with minimal costs throughout the life of the organism. This course will cover all facets of modeling, design, fabrication, and analysis of robots operating on the insect scale (varying from 200μm to 20cm in length). Students will explore development of a micro-robotic system as an autonomous/semi-autonomous device with features on the micron scale or make use of micron-scale physics for mobility or manipulation of objects. In this project-based course, our aim will be on learning the physics of scaling, fabrication paradigms, actuation and sensing strategies, with numerous case studies, and to build an insect-inspired robotic system.

Unique Challenges, Tailored Solutions

The challenges you face are complex, nuanced, and unique. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, favoring instead a collaborative process that results in an educational program customized to suit your organization and challenges as they are, not as we believe them to be.

Design and Development

We begin every engagement with a needs assessment and contextual analysis of the challenges facing your team. In the second phase, our faculty and Executive Education leadership collaborate with your team, working closely to design and develop a program that directly addresses the areas outlined from the needs assessment and includes the content and session structure. Upon delivery of the program, an evaluation and refinement process measures the quantifiable impact and makes the necessary adjustments for the next iteration.
