CRESTLEX Workshop with Navajo Technical University

In June 2021, Prof. Vijay Janapa Reddi and other Harvard researchers in collaboration with Navajo Technical University ran a workshop for middle and high school teachers and students of the Navajo Nation who are interested in learning more about Machine Learning. This first-of-its-kind, 1-week, hands-on/virtual course demonstrated developing a real-world application of ML through hands-on examples of Tiny Machine Learning (TinyML). TinyML is a cutting-edge field that brings the transformative power of machine learning (ML) to small low-power computing devices. This course exposed participants to the applications, algorithms, hardware, and software of TinyML. Keyword spotting workshop sessions featured the Navajo language for demonstration.
