In order to take CS 1951I, you should have taken CS 32, CS 33 or CS 132. You also need to complete and submit the course application by January 15th.
Students in the 2018-19 course are currently working on one of five projects. Students assigned to work with Uplift are working on building a web application that visualizes data from a research project to help make conventions safer and more inclusive. Separately, other students in the class are working with Baltimore Corps to build a web application for individuals and organizations to help them advance their impact in Baltimore’s social sector, while students working with Parvenu are using artificial intelligence to personalize check-out counter donations. Students collaborating with SWC are developing a platform to automate searches on Russian social network vk.com to help researchers track and monitor content that can be considered hateful in nature. Finally, students working with Mia Learning are aggregating book reviews from online sources to motivate children to read and learn to make powerful reading choices.
"Students will work in a studio environment to iteratively design, build, and test technical projects in partnership with different social change organizations. Students will be placed in small teams to collaboratively work on projects that will range from, for example, developing a chatbot to aid community engagement to conducting geospatial data analytics. Through the course, we will also reflect on our positionality and ethics in engaging in social impact work and what it practically means to leverage technology to create social change on an everyday basis."
