DataEthics4All's definition of STEAM

What is STEAM in AI?

The traditional definition of STEAM means Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. DataEthics4All's definition of STEAM also includes Sociology, Technical Education, Ethics, Analytics and Mentoring! Today, there exist many new linear as well as non-linear STEAM career paths that we'd like our students to be aware of and be able to take advantage of by choosing a career in STEAM whether or not Math, Science or Coding are their biggest passions. AI is going to be used in every Industry in the future from healthcare to construction and everything in between. DataEthics4All believes that combining the traditional with this new definition of STEAM will bring the much needed STEAM in AIᵀᴹ!!

Great Network of Mentors

We have a great Mentor Network ranging from Undergrad, Graduate and Ph.D. College Students studying different majors and doing research in various fields to Data and AI Professionals who live and breathe Technology on a daily basis. They are Data Scientists, Data Analysts, AI/ ML Engineers and more.

Our secret sauce is our Matching Process. We match the Mentee not only based on their skills and the kind of projects they want to pursue but also on their interests and help them match with the right Mentor who can help them work on a unique project designed just for them.
