Have you ever wondered…
In this course, students learn introductory concepts of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Kids will use these concepts (including augmented reality, simulated learning and functions, and AI behaviors) to create fast-paced interactive games such as Fruit Ninja, Chatbots, Rock/Paper/Scissors, and AI Pets!
Key Skills students will build in class:
1. Learning programming concepts that apply to interactive gaming
2. Understanding the basic concepts of what machine learning is through designing games that use it
3. Creating advanced characters that utilize behaviors that emulate Artificial Intelligence
If you are wondering what all the buzz is about, here is a quick primer:
Artificial Intelligence: The idea that a computer program/machine can think and learn to be able to carry out tasks in a “smart” way.
Machine Learning: This gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly told how to do so. We give the machines access to data and let them use the data to learn for themselves!
Allowed in this class: Windows desktop or laptop, Mac desktop or laptop, Chromebook
Not allowed in this class: Tablet, iPad
