What makes a computer truly intelligent? How does a machine learn? In this course, coders will follow dive into an important and influential subset of AI called machine learning. Coders will learn how machines learn to recognize and use language through natural language processing, or NLP. They will use Scratch’s AI extensions to design and build a new chatbot that utilizes machine learning to converse with human users. Finally, coders will compare and contrast different types of artificial intelligence and express their own thoughts on the future of AI.
This course is taught in Scratch so the students can concentrate on AI principles, not learning a new coding language. Please see the class requirements before enrolling.
