Applications are open for ML4Good Brasil July 2024

In partnership with Condor Initiative, ML4Good is running an intensive 10-day bootcamp focusing on upskilling in deep learning, exploring governance, and delving into conceptual topics for individuals who are motivated to work on addressing the risks posed by advanced AI systems.

This bootcamp will fast-track your deep learning skills, inform you about the current landscape of AI Safety agendas, connect you with like-minded individuals for potential friendship and collaboration, and accelerate you towards taking concrete next steps towards working impactfully in this field.

The bootcamp is aimed at people in Brasil and surrounding countries with some coding experience who hope to improve their technical and conceptual understanding in order to work on AI safety projects and agendas (for further eligibility guidelines, see the course page linked above).

The bootcamp will take place from July 18th - 28th in Brasil.
The application deadline is May 26th, 2024.


We update our programme between each camp to stay up to date with the rapid developments in the field of AI.

The programme includes technical content across a variety of topics, including projects like implementing GPT-2 from scratch, implementing and running RLHF and looking at various interpretability techniques on GPT models.

This is alongside talks, workshops and group discussions on topics such as model evaluations, risk models, and corporate and international governance.

There is the opportunity to dive further into a topic of your choice during the literature review afternoon and the 2.5-day project at the end of the bootcamp. In the final days, there will also be a focus on career planning and one-on-one mentoring to solidify the next steps.

You can find more information under “Curriculum” on our course page.


The camp will take place in Brasil. The bootcamp is free - there is no fee for room, board, or tuition. We ask participants to pay for their own travel costs - however, if this is preventing you from attending there will be the option to apply for travel support. Contact us at brasil@ml4good.org with any questions.
