It’s time for you to Apply

The project leverages a long-standing collaboration between faculty at the University of Houston (UH) and the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, Óptica y Electrónica (INAOE) of Mexico. IRES students will be trained and mentored on multilingual methods of language processing, image/video analysis, and deep learning for multimodal data. The goal of this IRES project is to contribute to the growth of the U.S. national STEM workforce by training a cohort of future computer science professionals (referred to as “IRES Scholars'') to thrive in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment and enabling them to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue artificial intelligence research and development.
