I have a personal story about the lack of diversity in Computer Science programs in our nation to tell and this story hurts me so bad every day since I started my career at UofSC that I would like to fix it, well not fix it totally, but contribute in my way and be a small part of this!

Here is my story:

Such a honor and pleasure to speak with these young kids @claflin1869 about some of our recent research and some exciting opportunities in my group as a part of our recent @nasa project, #diversity matters, we all should pay attention to it, computer science suffers a lot from diversity issues, I only have less than 10% of underrepresented groups (female, blacks, hispanic, 🏳️‍🌈) in my #artificialintelligence and #machinelearning classes at @uofsc @uofsc_cec, so I decided to do something about it actively, checkout this and get in touch if I can help with anything, increasing diversity is my priority #csforall: https://pooyanjamshidi.github.io/diversity/
