What is the Robot Training Academy?

A training program in Data Processing and Data Understanding.

Under the guidance of staff, students gain first-hand experience in the world of data science. Learn the basics of data research, cleaning, and modelling (with some more advanced work for those who want to learn, too!). 

You'll leave with the experience to launch your own data science career -- whether that's with our team or with other organizations. (Fun fact, 90% of the team started in the Robot Training Academy!)

The Academy is for any high school, undergraduate, or graduate student with an interest in data analytics and AI.

No data experience is required – we’ll help you with all that!

Get training in a business environment.

We’re proud to have offered the RTA in partnership with institutional partners including: 

Brock University Goodman Group

Buffalo State Data Science and Analytics

District School Board of Niagara 

Goergen Institute for Data Science (University of Rochester) 

Junior Achievement of Central Upstate New York

How does the Academy work?

➡Students enroll and choose from 2 programs of study: Data Understanding or Data Process (or enroll in both!)

➡Attend weekly LIVE workshops and participate in group projects. 

➡Earn a micro-credential when you complete a course and project. 

➡Network with peers, your instructors, and experts in the field.

➡Get hands-on experience and list your projects on your resume.

What's required to participate?

A computer, access to internet, a few hours a week, and your curiosity in how the world of data works.

Why? Because here at we believe the future of AI and Analytics-driven innovations will be defined by the curious thinkers as much as the coders. And we’ve been ignoring the role in finding smart thinkers to help our artificially intelligent systems deliver value.

That's why the Robot Training Academy will help you learn both the technical skills in data science AND the analytical skills required to interpret data and fine-tune (or "train") our AI systems.

What are the workshop topics?

Trainings in Data Processing include topics such as:
➡Introduction to Python
➡Processing with Python
➡Website Scraping
➡Decision Tree Algorithms
➡Querying Data
Trainings in Data Understanding include topics such as:
➡Data Research
➡Classifying Data Sources
➡Data Quality
➡Website Tagging
➡Ethics and Data Sources

We believe the future of AI and Analytics-driven innovations will be defined by the “thinkers” as much as the “coders." And we’ve been ignoring the role in finding smart thinkers to help our artificially intelligent systems deliver value.

3 More Reasons to Join

1. The future of work will be different

2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic transformed how we work. As the world becomes more and more reliant on data and AI, it's essential that we cultivate best practices for technology, processes, and delivery systems.

While not everyone will become a coder, companies will need people who are familiar with--and can take advantage of--data to solve business problems from either a technical or non-technical lens.


2. Your chance to train robots...

We're giving participants hands-on experience training AI--because machines, no matter how fast, are limited. They need the help of a human eye (and brain). You'll be working on real projects and real data.

Don't worry if you don't have previous experience. The training programs include both technical and non-technical classes, and our subject matter experts will be there to assist participants throughout. Our utmost concern is for student experience and success.

3. Explore new frontiers

You'll learn something new everyday. Each module of the program is delivered over a couple days, so participants will be introduced to new ideas and data frequently.

We also believe in experiential learning, which means lectures are kept at a minimum and students will become familiar with data through performing actual data work. You'll get hands-on experience in a professional lab, identifying data sources, analyzing data sets, and training AI systems.
