Anaheim Union to host district’s first-ever Artificial Intelligence Summit

The Anaheim Union High School District is bringing together a diverse line-up of speakers from Google, IBM, the United Nations and the Milken Institute — just to name a few — to discuss new pathways for students in the fields of artificial intelligence, biotech, cybersecurity and more.

The district’s first-ever Artificial Intelligence (AI) Summit will take place on Nov. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Anaheim Hilton. And while the in-person event is limited to invitations only, a virtual live streaming option is available for the public to attend. Students, educators, administrators, parents and others who support students can register via this link.

The summit will feature various sessions with industry experts who will discuss future AI workforce opportunities as well as showcase the district’s artificial intelligence pathway at Kennedy High School.

“The Anaheim Union High School District is a leader in creating future-ready career pathways in biotechnology, cybersecurity, incubator/accelerator labs, and an AI pathway that leads students through the world of artificial intelligence with an emphasis on robotics, computer science, and engineering design,” the district said in a press release.

Earlier this year, the district announced a partnership with the Irvine-based technology firm Loko AI to launch a new artificial intelligence internship program. AUHSD also became the first public school district in the nation to offer Google Career Certificates in the fields of data analytics, IT support and project management.

The Nov. 5 summit is free to those who register, and additional information can be found on the flyer below and by visiting the AUHSD website.
