2021 Bridging AI & UX Grant Student Showcase
VIRTUAL TALK + PRESENTATIONS
The Bridging AI & UX Grant invited DePaul University College of Computing and Digital Media students to propose cutting-edge projects that bridge the artificial intelligence (AI) and user experience design (UX) fields and have a positive cultural or social impact in our communities.
Join us to learn more about projects that bridge AI and UX to and celebrate the students' achievements! The showcase event will open with a keynote speaker, followed by team presentations and Q&A session.
The Bridging AI & UX Grant is made possible by generous donations from Bold Insight and Leap of Faith Technologies.
