Grade 10 team showcases their trained robot at Annual Machine Learning Symposium

Earlier this month, Grade 10 students (L to R) Ryan Heaton, Sammy Hillenmeyer, and Alex Lim attended the 13th Annual Machine Learning Symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences where they met employees of Google and leaders in the field of Computer Science from Stanford University, WashU, and other institutions. They were chosen to attend and represent King at this event because their US Science Fair Project involves teaching a robot to learn and solve a maze on its own, so they went to learn more about this type of programming and computer science. 

The trio has worked together in King's Innovation Lab to develop code to teach and train their robot. Join us at the US Science Fair on Saturday, April 13, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in the US Gymnasium where they (and others) will be presenting the results of their projects. 

Also, both Ryan and Sammy have been accepted into King's Advanced Math & Science Research Program for their Junior year. Ryan will continue studying Machine Learning at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center as he tries to teach a machine/computer to diagnose various types of cancers based on histology images. Sammy Hillenmeyer will be working in a lab at Yale University to identity alternative sources of energy using solar radiation. 

Congratulations to Ryan, Sammy, and Alex on their continued work in the field of Computer Science and we look forward to meeting their robot at the US Science Fair.
