NASA has selected Holberton School first-year student Sravanthi Sinha to intern at the NASA Frontier development lab, joining students from such universities as UC Berkeley and Cambridge, the company said.
A six-week long research accelerator, championed by NASA´s office of the chief technologist and hosted at the SETI Institute, engages young researchers from around the world to take on an existential threat to our species.
The NASA Frontier development lab (FDL) is bringing together a team of postgraduate researchers in data analytics and planetary science and challenging them to think outside the box on the threat of asteroid impacts. The initiative is under the aegis of experts from the space agency and the SETI Institute, with deep-learning expertise contributed by NVIDIA and Autodesk.
Holberton School is a project-based alternative to college for the next generation of software engineers.
