No, you just need to be curious and interested in AI and technology. It’s ok if you don’t know much about the technical side. However, if you have background knowledge, that’s great.

We will prioritize students that demonstrate a strong level of curiosity and interest in emerging technology and science. AI can be applied to a variety of industries and problems, so we’re looking for people who are curious about how AI can make an impact on the world. The more effort you put into your application, the higher chance you’ll be invited.
