HUMIC's humble origin derives from the tradition of a small group of Harvard and MIT AI aficionados that came together to work on various machine learning projects. They became known as the Machine Intelligence Community. Over the course of the pandemic, this community endured and became reborn at Harvard as HUMIC. HUMIC attained official club status in the fall of 2021, and inaugurated its first fellowship class in the spring of 2022. Below is a list of notable events that HUMIC has held.
Climate Hack (Spring 2022): HUMIC hosted the finals of an international competition to build models for predicting solar energy production. Climate Hack was organized by UCL, and over 30 finalists from Stanford, Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Illinois, and MIT converged with HUMIC at Harvard to present on their final video generation models.
