Robots! Smartphones! Self-driving cars! What is artificial intelligence and how does it affect your everyday life? In this course, our coders will use Scratch to build a basic rule-based AI chatbot. In the process of building their projects, students will learn what AI is, play with real AI tools, identify the ways in which they are already interacting with AI, and explore the origins and history of artificial intelligence. By the end of this course, coders will be able to demonstrate and explain how computers mimic human intelligence by making “smart” decisions.
This course is taught in Scratch so the students can concentrate on AI principles, not learning a new coding language. Please see class requirements before enrolling.
