=== THE 2014 AMALTHEA REU PROGRAM ===
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A 10-WEEK RESEARCH EXPERIENCE FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS is available in the area of Machine Learning. The program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is offered by the Information Characterization & Exploitation (ICE) Laboratory at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) in Melbourne, Florida.
Machine Learning (ML) gradually evolved as a branch of Artificial Intelligence with its theory and applications positioned at the juncture of Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics and, even, Physics. Nowadays, ML’s role in successfully addressing hard, real-world technological challenges has become ever more current and central. Moreover, its presence and importance now permeates several aspects not only of cutting-edge technology such as computer vision, stock market prediction and big data analytics, but also our daily life through voice-driven searches on our smart phones or movie recommendations on video streaming services to name only a few.
The program currently accepts applications in order to form a very diverse, multi-disciplinary cohort of nascent researchers for this summer. Minorities, women and people with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.
Without exceptions, applicants must be:
=> Majoring in an Engineering or Science discipline
=> US citizens or permanent residents
=> Undergraduates in good academic standing
=> Exposure to the exciting world of Machine Learning and its applications
=> Participate in a one-week crash course to familiarize yourself with Machine Learning
=> Work with experienced student mentors and experts in the field
=> Participate and contribute to cutting-edge Machine Learning research
=> Take part in visits to our local industry
=> Paid travel and accommodation expenses
=> Receive a competitive stipend for per diem expenses
=> Visit Central Florida venues such as Disney attractions and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center
=> Meet new people
=> Make new friends
