Artificial Intelligence

The Program

High School – 3rd to 5th grade

The artificial intelligence program introduces students to the world of artificial intelligence (AI) and general technologies by leading them to create an AI based solution to answer a need in society. Through this project, the students will explore the different types of human and machine intelligence, research their concrete applications and learn to effectively position themselves on many ethical issues that arise from intelligence. Finally, the students will conceptualize a business and propose an AI based solution that answers a society’s need by developing a functional prototype.
