2024 IDEAS Summer Program

The IDEAS residential summer program will provide an opportunity for undergraduates to spend 2 weeks in Boston to learn from world experts on data science, ethics, computer science, philosophy, law, and more. The program will help the next generation learn how to think critically and systematically about the ethical risks posed by these technologies, and how to responsibly develop AI and data science systems that benefit the many, not only the few.

We are seeking to foster a rich and diverse community through these programs, including connections with a wide range of two- and four-year educational institutions. 

The 2024 summer installation of IDEAS will run from July 1st to July 12, 2024. This program is generously funded by the Omidyar Network
