Accelerate your journey into machine learning.
In the last 5 years, the number of jobs in machine learning
has increased by a factor of 10.
A4 Bootcamps are always taught by graduate students in the Department of
Computer Science at Stanford. Our instructors are passionate about
educating the next generation of machine learning scientists. A4 is proud
to offer intensive weekend-long bootcamps on a variety of machine learning topics!
We hold bootcamps on the second weekend of every month. Registration is open for April 13-14 and May 11-12.
Who is it for?
High school students with 1 CS course of experience, or equivalent.
The Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto. Room details will be sent out prior to the bootcamp.
Build skills that you can apply anywhere.
Students will learn the fundamental principles behind machine
learning, specifically focusing on supervised learning. These
principles include featurization, model evaluation, parameter
tuning, regularization, and much more.
In addition, students will become familiar with a variety of
Python libraries, such as NumPy, Scikit-learn, and Keras. A more
detailed curriculum as well as optional pre-bootcamp reading will
be sent to all registered participants the week before the bootcamp.

During bootcamps, students will be provided with a variety of
open-source and proprietary datasets. Some examples of projects are
predicting malignancy of tumors based on breast cancer
data, detecting bias in natural language text, and predicting
a customer's future purchases based on their shopping history.
During the second day of the bootcamp, we will allow
students to develop their own projects and receive feedback on
