Student Projects

Check out some projects that TKS students have worked on. 

Artificial Intelligence

Using recent developments in areas like machine learning and neural networks, computers are now able to solve complex problems better than humans. This enables us to perform extremely effective human-like tasks using computers.

Genetic Engineering

We can change the genetic material of organisms - which is the code to life. This could mean editing bacteria to produce lab-grown food like meats and milk, or editing human DNA to get rid of certain diseases!
