Seidenberg School Organizations
There are Seidenberg student organizations located on both the New York City and Westchester campuses that enable students, both undergraduate and graduate, to network with other students and faculty, hear about internships and job opportunities, share research findings, and learn more about developments in exciting fields such as robotics, video games, graphic design, and cybersecurity. They're also a fantastic opportunity for students to meet new friends on a weekly basis.

Artificial Intelligence Club (NYC)
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) club aims to provide an insightful environment that fosters the development of new and reliable forms of AI within the Pace community. Events at the club include:
• Nano-Talks: Scripted, concise and carefully rehearsed 5-15 min talks from qualified members about any AI topic. Followed by a 15-25 min QA session.
• Panel Discussions: Controversial AI topics (such as bots consciousness, super-intelligence, and singularity) discussed by qualified and informed members.
• Knowledge Center: A constantly growing and up-to-date compilation of nano-talks, panel discussions, projects, research, datasets and code libraries at Pace.
• Speakers talks: Similar to nano-talk but from someone outside the Pace community.
• Collaborative Teams: Network, guide or be trained from a team of people with the same region of interest. Your team will basically need a goal and a dedication. We (as a club) will provide you with the rest.
Members can gain practical and theoretical experience in their preferred AI sub-field (Machine Learning, Robotics, NLP, Computer Vision, etc). We work in teams or on solo projects to explore fundamental areas of AI and broaden our skills and knowledge. What's more, the club offers a great opportunity to network with like-minded students, faculty, and professionals across the Pace community.
Join our Slack group aiclub3.slack.com to learn more.
The Seidenberg School Cybersecurity Club runs events and workshops throughout the semester that pertain to all things cybersecurity. Events include guest speakers and meet-ups, and workshops offer hands-on training that will help any cybersecurity enthusiast hone their skills.
