Summer at Woodstock – Artificial Intelligence

Use block programming to experiment with AI applications

An introductory course to artificial intelligence that will be taught using a block-programming approach to learn AI modules. Machine learning concepts like identifying an object, recognizing text, numbers and images have been gamified and made fun to learn.

 

Who should take this course?

Anyone interested in learning & understanding about the systems & tools that you interact with on a daily basis & interested in creating cutting edge AI applications.

 

Highlights & Learning

Some of the activities in this course include programming a chat-bot, a rock-paper-scissors game, and a machine to guess the demographics of a person by looking at their picture. You will learn the fundamentals of block-based programming to make interactive machines and games.

During these sessions, you will be encouraged to create socially relevant applications from your program such as a currency detector for the visually impaired or a waste segregation helper.

 

Key Learning

  • What is AI & introduction to block programming
  • Programming with some pre-made models – image & language processing (2 sessions)
