Partnering with CAIS++

Let's work together

Since our inception, our members have been striving to apply their skills in Artificial Intelligence to help solve the real problems in communities around us. Our student teams work with nonprofits, researchers, and community leaders on semester-long projects to ensure that new advancements in AI are used for social good.

At the moment, our projects are primarily centered around machine learning, a subfield of Artificial Intelligence that focuses on leveraging large amounts of data to build statistical models that are able to generate insights and predictions that traditional software can’t.

Here are some past CAIS++ successes:

  • Building a model that looks at LA’s annual budget appropriations and categorizes each entry for increased transparency
  • Using chest X-ray images to build a computer vision algorithm that diagnoses patients with pneumonia
  • Analyzing audio recordings of rare languages to extract and preserve linguistic information

If you’ve got an interesting problem that you think machine learning could help tackle (and a dataset to go with it!), feel free to reach out to us at caisplus@usc.edu or fill out the form via the button below—we’ll be in touch.

Note: While our members can take a specific challenge and run with it, we do ask that our clients make themselves available for further contact throughout the course of a project. Regular in-person meetings aren’t required, but occasional check-ins—via phone or email—will be helpful.
