AI Projects #2 

General Informatıon

Please remember to provide all your information in English. We use English in our projects so that they can be reviewed by everyone.

Q: When and where is AI Projects?

A: The AI Projects is designed to consist of 12-week batches. Though the participants are free to hold the weekly meetups online, they need to be present at inzva at least every 3 weeks to brainstorm about the progression of their project.

Q: Can I come to inzva in the days other than the regular meetup days?

A: Yes, of course! In fact, we encourage our participants to come in each Saturday to both work on their project and hang out with the rest of the community members.

Q: How will I know whether I am accepted or not?

A: We will notify you individually, notwithstanding the result. Please make sure to regularly check your emails during this period. You will get an email stating your result on February 16.


Applicant Information


Q: What are the technical requirements for applicants?

A: You need to have at least two years of AI experience to participate in this programme due to the high level of expertise necessary to fully develop a project. By applying AI Projects, you undertake that you have the required skills to actively take part in a team.

If you are new to studying Machine Learning, please feel free to check out our study groups.

Q: I do not reside in Istanbul. Can I still join?

A: As previously stated, we expect our participants to physically join the meetups in inzva every 3 weeks. If you think that is possible on your part, you are free to apply. If not, please remember that the sustainability of the projects are of great importance and it is not possible to efficiently contribute solely online.

Q: What if I do not have a team?

A: It is perfectly fine! We will be divided into teams and choose our projects in the first meetup. You can come together with your own teammates or just come in by yourself. Please keep in mind that even if you come as a team, there will be other people who are going to participate in the same project that you do.

PROPOSED PROJECTS

Q: How do I propose a project?

A: You can bring in your own project idea or design one during the batch with your teammates. Also, you can propose to work on an academic paper on any subject involving AI and machine learning (Our research domains include but are not limited to: computer vision, natural language processing, reinforcement learning, audio processing, time series classification and forecasting, and multi-agent systems).

If you are working for a company, please refrain from offering a project in which you are involved at the company. Teams will be formed and will choose their projects in the first meetup. Then, the tasks will be divided among the teammates.

Q: What are the standards for project proposals?

A: Even though we encourage you to go wild and play with some ideas, we need to make sure that the projects are subjected to certain standards so that they can be fulfilled. The projects can be designed in such a way that they can be concluded within the given time period and by using our existing computing power (reserved GPU on cloud).

Q: What if i cannot finish the project in the given time period?

A: Though we understand that concluding a project sometimes proves to be impossible due to various reasons, we will evaluate whether everyone in the team did their best to progress. If you could not conclude the project, you will still be obliged to make a brief presentation that covers your thought process.

If you could not conclude a project due to a failure of sparing the conditioned effort and/or time, please remember that inzva reserves the right to review the participants’ applications accordingly for future events.

Q: Could you provide me with more details regarding the final presentations?

A: We expect you to deliver a final presentation of your project, whether it is concluded or not. If your project is concluded, your presentation will cover your thought process, workflow and outcomes. If not, please have a presentation about the things that went wrong in various stages of your project progress.

Q: Are the projects subjected to any kind of software license?

A: We generally opt to use MIT license here at inzva. If the project group proposes to be subjected to anything else, they are free to ask for the approval of AI Projects’ leader. Otherwise, all the projects will be subjected to MIT license.

Q: Is your question not in the list?

A: If you still have questions in mind, please e-mail us via contact@inzva.com

All participants have to abide by OUR CODE OF CONDUCT.
