“As something as prolific as Artificial Intelligence, my fellow E-board and I knew it was something we had to bring to the university.” -Secretary Ethan Kassai

Cognitech, a burgeoning club dedicated to the exploration and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), has made remarkable strides on its journey to success at the university. With just one month of official recognition from the Student Government Association (SGA), this innovative club has already attracted considerable student members who share a passion for AI and its vast potential.

In December, Cognitech held its inaugural welcome meeting, a pivotal event that marked the beginning of an exciting journey. At this gathering, the club’s esteemed E-board members – Anna Enukishvili, Aaron Stanway, Maxwell Flores, Ethan Kassai, and Sander Dawson – outlined their ambitious vision and objectives for the club. Among their goals are the creation of custom Machine Learning models, harnessing the power of AI to enhance various academic disciplines, and exploring avenues for monetizing AI innovations. These objectives reflect the club’s commitment to not only fostering knowledge but also translating it into practical applications that can benefit the broader community.
