Mark Cuban Foundation and Notified Bring AI Bootcamp to

PORTLAND, Ore., May 31, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Mark Cuban Foundation, in partnership with Notified, is bringing the only artificial intelligence (AI) camp of its kind, free of charge, to high school students in Portland. With a custom and highly relevant curriculum focused on teaching students about the latest developments in the world of AI and Generative AI, the camp will provide the tools to make these technologies work for them and promises to educate, inspire and fuel the next generation of AI professionals.

These AI bootcamps are introductory and accessible to student in grades 9-12 with an interest in technology. Students do not need any familiarity with computer science or programming to attend. Over the course of three half-days, students will learn what AI is and isn’t, where they already interact with AI in their own lives, the ethical implications of AI systems, and much more. Students also learn how to utilize ChatGPT via tailored inputs and use Microsoft’s cloud computing tools to build their own AI applications.

“As AI continues to become an undeniable force in all of our lives, it’s crucial that we open the door to this knowledge, especially to young people who want to explore it,” said Mark Cuban, founder. “While technology expands and becomes more advanced, it becomes more critical that we ensure our students are prepared when they apply for schools or jobs in the future. Thanks to our work with Notified, the bootcamp will offer an avenue to explore this fascinating field of technology to any student, no matter their means.”

This year’s bootcamp, taking place in Portland on November 2nd, 9th, and 16th is hosted and staffed by Notified. Notified empowers investor relations and public relations professionals – the corporate storytellers – with the tools, technologies and expertise to tell their stories powerfully, effectively and flawlessly. Relied on by more than 10,000 global clients, their end-to-end communications solutions include everything from GlobeNewswire press release distribution, social listening and media monitoring to earnings calls, IR websites and investor days. 

Notified is one of 25+ host companies selected to host camps across the US.

“Our enthusiasm for AI stems from its transformative potential – not just in reshaping our work processes and the ability to tell stories, but also in redefining the technology skills that will be essential for futures careers across industries,” said Erik Carlson, Chief Product Officer & COO at Notified. “We believe every student should have access to AI education and the opportunity to acquire these essential skills. By partnering with the Mark Cuban Foundation, we are thrilled to contribute to the enhancement of the program’s curriculum and to mentor the next generation in AI innovation and application.”
