The program includes free non-commercial use of licenses of H2O Driverless AI for both students and professors. As part of the program, H2O.ai will also provide guidance in course development and make guest lecturers available from leading H2O.ai machine learning experts, including some of the top Kaggle Grandmasters in the world.

"Data pervades all fields of learning. AI in the hands of bold and imaginative researchers will speed up scientific discovery exponentially," said Sri Ambati, CEO and founder of H2O.ai. "H2O started with close collaboration of open source and university researchers. With our Academic Program, we are revitalizing that bond and giving back to the research community. This will accelerate and advance data science education for students, professors and universities around the globe. Unfettered access to leading-edge AI and automatic machine learning technologies will impact every field of discovery. Our mission to democratize AI starts with the next generation of makers."

"Using H2O.ai in our AI curriculum gives students a better understanding of machine learning techniques in a shorter period of time," said Dr. Michael Bliemel, M.M.S B.Sc, Ph.D, Dean and Professor of Management Information Systems, Faculty of Business and Information Technology at the University of Ontario, Canada. "Having the ability to easily visualize and explain data inputs as well as explainable model outputs truly opens up machine learning to non-technical students in business degrees, which is essential to changing how we educate our university students so that they can be productive innovators and citizens after they graduate."

"I've been using H2O and autoML in my research on advertising effectiveness. Now with the H2O.ai Academic Program, we can use Driverless AI as an introduction to AI and also an illustration of modern enterprise use of AI for analyzing cross-sectional data, time-series data and NLP problems for teaching students - it's a dream come true," said Dr. John Williams, BCom, PGDipCom, MCom, DipGrad, Ph.D and Senior Lecturer at Otaga Business School, Department of Marketing, New Zealand.

The H2O.ai Academic Program will bring together students and professors across a wide range of disciplines including Business, Technology and Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences.

Academic Program participants will receive following benefits:

  • Access to H2O Driverless AI at no cost for non-commercial use
  • Support for building machine learning courses
  • Access to the H2O.ai online training tools and courses
  • Guest lectures by H2O.ai's leading machine learning experts
