Our 8th-grade students are becoming AI Pioneers! In this course, our emerging engineers learn how to create projects for social good using Python programming language.
Through hands-on coding, students discover how computers can use data to solve complex problems like natural language processing and computer vision. They also explore the ways scientists meaningfully use AI to predict heart disease, create social robots, assist with disaster relief, and navigate autonomous vehicles. Some of the specific questions they investigate include:
- How can we train computers to recognize handwritten letters or interpret drawings?
- How does Netflix recommend movies to us?
- How can we use Twitter data to help provide resources to those in need during emergencies?
This virtual course, which is taught weekly by Stanford and MIT AI researchers, emphasizes ethical responsibility, career paths in artificial intelligence, and interdisciplinary applications of AI technologies.
