About Teens in AI

Teens In AI exists to increase diversity and inclusion in artificial intelligence.

We aim to democratise AI and create pipelines for underrepresented talent through a combination of expert mentoring, talks, workshops, hackathons, accelerators, company tours and networking opportunities that give young people aged 12-18 early exposure to AI for social good.

Our vision is for AI to be developed by a diverse group of thinkers and doers advancing AI for humanity’s benefit.

What we do

Meetups

We run monthly meetups where teens explore AI, intersections of AI & other technologies and hear from inspiring entrepreneurs

Hackathons

Every few months we run a hackathon where teens compete in teams to solve a real problem through AI and other technologies

AI Accelerators

Every summer we run a 2-week AI Accelerator which offers teams a chance to build a tech start-up with help of expert mentors, tour the best companies in London and hear from the most inspiring entrepreneurs

Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.
