Summer Camp Overview
AI CAMP DESCRIPTION: In this course for 5th and 6th graders, students will spend five days learning about and using artificial intelligence systems. Students will manipulate sensors and understand perception, sensing and how these systems can be utilized as inputs for artificially intelligent agents. Campers will train AI computers and experiment with machine learning, ideally creating output that feels natural in interactions with humans. Finally, students will grapple with ethical issues and consider how programmers, businesses, politicians, and individuals can ensure that the algorithms and AI systems we create are for the benefit of humanity. This course is taught by NCSSM's new AI Program Architect.
