The USC CAIS Summer Fellowship Program allows PhD students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career researchers (e.g., assistant professors) in the areas of computer science, social science, and other related fields to spend the summer with faculty and students at USC CAIS. Summer fellows participate in projects that are driven by our AI for social good mission. In the past, projects have included housing allocation, North Korean refugee youth’s friendships and acculturation with South Korean youth, suicide prevention, HIV prevention, wildlife conservation, and stress response in association with experiences of violence. At the conclusion of each summer, fellows will have co-authored a computer science and/or social science paper for conference or journal submission. Our summer fellows have had their work accepted at the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS) and the AAAI/ACM conference on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics, and Society.
Calls for applications for the USC CAIS Summer Fellowship Program are posted in late fall. Please check our website for details.
