Skule Tennis Club

STC (Skule Tennis Club) is a club that arranges weekly meet-ups for engineering students itching to play tennis. We book the courts ahead of time (unless they are public) and organize students into appropriate groups when they arrive – beginners play withbeginners and experts play with experts. There is no tournament, just rallying, king's court and/or a doubles match. Intense players can come to improve, and less intense players can come to enjoy the weather, a more relaxed play, and the company. Our club has already fostered friendships between our members, so there is a social aspect as well. Many engineering students want to get out and play, and we give them just that opportunity!

University of Toronto Machine Intelligence Student Team

UTMIST is a student organization devoted to promoting a vibrant machine learning community on campus and to clear the MIST around machine intelligence for the eager young minds. The University of Toronto is one of the world centers of machine learning, yet most undergraduate students seldom have the opportunity of getting in touch with the scholars from academia and industry. Our ultimate goal is to close this gap by building a platform to increase industry engagement, connecting students with research labs and industrial companies that are actively looking for brilliant minds to join them. Founded in 2017, we ran a series of successful initiatives including MIST101 (introductory workshops), our Guest Speaker Series, Technical Workshops, Paper Reproduction teams, and applied machine learning projects. Our team now totals over 60 graduate and undergraduate students and reaches a community of 1200+ registered members. Continuing this legacy, we aim to take on additional challenges during the pandemic to continue to provide students with more resources and opportunities in a virtual environment. We are collaborating with research institutes and companies to present more paper reading sessions and technical workshops, while also facilitating student groups to work on applied and research projects on machine learning.

Ethical Principles in AI

UofT EPAI is committed to educating and taking action on ethical concerns within artificial intelligence. Bias in decision systems, data privacy and surveillance, and manipulation of behaviour are just some of the ethical concerns that need to be addressed to avoid AI causing detrimental effects to individuals and society. Currently, ethics in AI is mostly found in research labs and a select couple of upper-year courses. Our mission is to make the ethics in AI more accessible to ALL undergraduate engineering students through educational workshops and hands-on projects. Specifically, the educational workshops will be held monthly (and potentially in collaboration with professors/organizations on campus) on topics such as ethics in healthcare AI, bias in AI, and data privacy in ML. Also, examples of our hands-on projects for club members would be a biweekly/monthly podcast that summarizes content from related academic papers into a form that is more accessible to the wider public, an AI bias visualizer, and a website that spreads awareness on ethics in AI.

Volunteer Engineering Experience Program

Quick note on above: I don't have access to my home computer which has the photos - I will update them when I get the chance (for now enjoy a photo of a polite cat).Description:Our purpose is twofold - facilitate impact in social contexts through public good oriented projects hosted for technically adept students. It begins with a catch 22 scenario of students everywhere while looking for internships. Employers require that students have prior experience so it feels impossible to get a foot in the door. VEEP addresses this gap by hosting and supporting industry level projects to get students the skill and experience they need. Secondly, we empower students to serve their communities with their technical abilities and by extension, learn more about the needs of the communities around them. Our students learn to showcase their experience in nuanced projects where many stakeholders are involved.Our project cycle takes course over a 6-8 month period, beginning in September of the fall semester until April of the Winter semester. Students work in teams of 4-6 with a project manager on a weekly basis on their project. While they communicate with their client, they have the full support of VEEP to complete the project. At the end of the year, students showcase their work at an end-of-year event for clients and students alike.
