Day 6: Dinner Banquet, Classification Lecture, and Computer Vision Applications

On Day 6, Google engineer Eugene Davydov gave a lecture on classification methods including decision trees, Naive Bayes, and k-nearest neighbors.

Stanford professor Stefano Ermon then presented his lab’s work on using artificial intelligence to serve the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Ermon’s lab fed AI algorithms satellite images of locations around the world to measure poverty levels using identifiers for economic development such as night light intensity. Another project used satellite images to predict crop yield in various agricultural communities.


Following lunch, students worked with their research mentors and groups. They prepared for presentations to be held at a banquet later in the evening.


Students from the robotics group code their robots.

The dinner banquet opened with an introduction by program director and Professor Fei-Fei Li.


The event featured a talk by Dr. Alison Okamura, a well-known robotics researcher and professor at Stanford.



Students also gave speeches, which summarized their respective research topics. The students especially thanked Professors Fei-Fei Li and Olga Russakovsky and their PhD research mentors.
