This is an introductory course to artificial intelligence. It 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.
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.
