Try a "Byte of AI"

  • AI & Drawing
    • Length: 1 hour
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Understanding of what AI is, privacy and bias concerns
    • Description: A quick and fun way to become familiar with some core ideas of modern AI while playing with Google Quick, Draw
    More Info
  • AI & Facial Recognition
    • Length: 1 hour
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Ethics
    • Description: A short deep dive into how facial recognition technology is used, some biases it has, and some ways companies, individuals, and the law are fighting against its use in surveillance
    More Info
  • AI & Deepfakes
    • Length: 1 hour
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Critical thinking
    • Description: AI can create realistic-looking images and videos that were never actually filmed or taken as a photo. These images and videos are called deepfakes. This is a quick lesson requiring no background where students learn about deepfakes, as well as ways to verify information that they see

  • AI & the Environment
    • Length: 1-2 hours
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Conservation
    • Description: Learn how conservationists use AI image recognition to save time identifying how and where to protect endangered species. Build your own species-identifying AI system

  • AI & Dance
    • Length: 1-4 hours
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Movement, collaboration
    • Description: Students play with an AI that can react to their movement, and choreograph something that uses this tool. They can show off their choreography to the rest of the class
    More Info
  • AI & Ethics
    • Length: 10 hours
    • Skills/knowledge you'll gain: Human-centered design, ethics
    • Description: An interactive deep dive into the sort of ethical concerns that companies creating AI based systems should consider. Students explore these ideas through role-playing running their own companies and making ethical decisions for those companies
