Description




Why learn about AI?

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are all around us - from Siri on your iPhone and Google Map suggestions, to recommendations for purchases during your Amazon check-out. While many of us may think AI and machine learning mean more robots and self-driving cars, at a fundamental level, they are about data - and ways to make meaning of data.

In this workshop, we’ll use a hands-on approach to learn how to put data to use for us in our everyday lives. During the session, you’ll learn the following:

  • An introduction to the history of artificial intelligence and machine learning, what they mean and why it matters
  • An introduction to data and strategies for collection, preparation, manipulation and analysis of data
  • An introduction to machine learning models and predictive data
  • Build your very own machine learning model to evaluate data that’s interesting to you
  • What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will), as well as career opportunities available in the fields of AI and machine learning


Who is this for?

Our Teens Learning Code workshops and events offer female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 15-18 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology. Our learning experiences are much more than learning how to code. Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
