The CITRIS TensorFlow for Social Good program, funded by Google Research, is designed to give undergraduate students a start in TensorFlow, Machine Learning; build camaraderie and teamwork, and add a project to their resumes while developing something of use to society.

TensorFlow for Social Good Program:
  • Learn to use Tensorflow, an industry-grade machine learning technology
  • Work with teams of 2-4
  • Win cool prizes
  • Add a project to your resume
  • Learn skills wanted in the industry
  • Participate in workshops with free food
  • Training led by PhD Candidate Jason He and MS Student Darren Ng
Activities include:
  • Three workshops to learn TensorFlow
  • Network with industry partners and others
  • Ability to work with hundreds of TensorFlow datasets
  • We're having a fun networking part with pizza at the workshop events. Vegan and vegetarian options will be available
  • Build and present a final project with your team and win awards

Frequently Asked Questions

Bring your laptop, good energy, and make sure to have a Gmail account in order to use Google Colab (you can use anything but we recommend Colab if you're a beginner)

It's a similar aspect to a hackathon, however, we offer 3 training sessions in which anyone will be able to learn TensorFlow even with no experience! Form a team of 2-4 and present your final project and compete for prizes!
That's up to you to decide! Make sure it follows CITRIS's core belief in which it is in the interest of society; this means to produce something that will bring good use to today's society, using TensorFlow! Avoid showing an excess amount of your code during final presentations. Demo's should be clear and allow anyone to understand the problem and your solution.
Come to either the first or second training sessions! There will be plenty of time to collaborate and form a team! Deadline to form a team is 10/20/2022.
