If you are a computer science student, are you a member of an underrepresented or underserved minority within CS? This includes women, Black, Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, or people with disabilities. 
This year's project is called Touchage, which leverages a silicone based massage interface to interact with ChatGPT, providing new input capabilities for LLMs and taking a step towards giving LLMs a body. We have two open roles - Hardware Interface Designer where you will be working with Arduino/Adafruit microcontrollers and electronics, and UI Developer where you will be working on developing the software interface that gets data from the massage interface and integrates it to the ChatGPT API.
Which role are you interested in? You can choose both.
If you chose Hardware Interface Designer, do you have any experience using Arduino/Adafruit/Teensy or any other microcontroller boards? Additionally, do you have any experience working with electronics (sensors, actuators)? Please describe and provide links to  your portfolio/website/apps/videos or images of artifacts you have made that demonstrate your skills.
If you chose UI Developer, do you have any experience using React/Javascript/Python Flask/CSS/HTML or any other frontend/backend experiences? Please describe and provide links to  your portfolio/website/apps/videos or images of artifacts you have made that demonstrate your skills.
Briefly describe your favorite project that you have worked on.
Briefly describe a skill that you have picked up on your own (without formal instruction or without requiring the help of an instructor).
From the Project Descriptions above, describe the project(s) you are interested in and what skills you could contribute to the project(s). If available, please provide links to your portfolio/website/apps/videos or images of artifacts you have made that demonstrate your skills.
Are you part of any student organizations on campus? What is your role in these organizations, if applicable?
If selected, will you be available from  September 26 - October 3 for an interview?
The weekly time requirement is given below: 
5 hours solo work on the project (no fixed time, you can work on the project whenever, lab access is 24/7)
Tuesday 11 am - 12 pm - attending a lab-hosted class
Wednesday 4-5 pm - attending a weekly meeting

The program is self-paced -- you can end the semester with a full-formed research publication or leave roughly where you started. Additionally, it is highly likely we will be submitting this project to a conference whose submission deadline is typically in January/February which may require you to make some time commitment over winter break (not December, mainly January). Consider taking on research only if you can commit the time. 

How much time can you realistically contribute weekly to research? Can you attend during the required times?
Resume (Please provide a link, ideally to a pdf resume in your google drive.)
