Teens in AI

Teens in AI is a multi-award-winning social impact initiative launched at the UN AI for Good Summit 2018.

We exist to increase diversity and inclusion in Artificial Intelligence.

We aim to democratize AI and create opportunities for underrepresented talent through a combination of mentoring, workshops, hackathons and networking opportunities to give young people aged 12-29 early exposure to AI for social good.

Since 2015, we've reached over 9000 young people in over 140 cities worldwide.

Teens in AI aims to engage schools across the UAE in a multi-team cross-school hackathon to encourage students to use artificial intelligence for social impact by tackling UN SDGs.

This project aims is to build a nurturing ecosystem that will support UAE’s vision to become the leader in AI.

For this initiative, Dubai World Trade Centre will be working in partnership with the UK-based organisation Teens In AI to deliver a 5-week long programme run in September, which will culminate in a dedicated Teens In AI Demo Day onsite at AI Everything x GITEX, one of the world’s largest and most important tech mega events.

The Demo Day will also include a full range of fun, interactive and inspirational sessions and workshops for all students to enjoy, to help engage them with the global tech community.
