APRIL 5, 2021 — The MATRIX AI Consortium at UTSA is pleased to announce the inaugural class of Xilinx-MATRIX AI Fellows. Funded by a generous gift from Xilinx’s Women in Technology (WIT) Programs, the award includes funding to support stipends for the initial class of fellows, along with state-of-the-art hardware to be used within MATRIX’s newly-established AI DIY space located in the North Paseo Building.
Xilinx’s WIT programs fund university efforts seeking to increase the representation, participation, and entrepreneurial skills and abilities of women in technology-focused careers.
Fellows will participate in a variety of programming this spring semester, including the MATRIX AI seminar series and workshops intended to build collaborative mentorship relationships with female AI scientists.
Additionally, the fellows will complete an AI-related research immersion experience within a MATRIX core member’s lab.
