Ai for Kids

Course information

This course introduces Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) by providing a balanced mix of theory and practical experiences around machine learning systems and building things with them.

Lesson after lesson we will introduce fundamental concepts and stimulate discussions about these innovative technologies. We also believe that the best way for kids to learn about AI/ML is for them to get hands-on, first-hand experiences. If they can train a computer to do something, they will get a good understanding of the system at large.

In our practical activities we make use of kid-friendly platforms for training machine learning models to recognise text, numbers, images, or sounds. This builds on existing efforts to introduce and teach coding to children, by adding these models to educational coding platforms such as Scratch, and helping young coders create projects and build games with the machine learning models they train.

Topics and Objectives

By the end of the course students will understand several key concepts about AI, ML and algorithms, recognize different kinds of AI applications, know how to use data for Machine Learning and understand some of the issues that can arise with AI in society. In the last module of the course, students will work in teams or individually to design and build a prototype using machine learning algorithms.

These are the topics that we will touch during the course:

  • AI and Machine Learning

    What is Artificial Intelligence? What is Machine Learning? Students will become able to answer those questions and gain the knowledge necessary to grasp the immense potential and opportunities that these technologies bring.

  • Image Recognition

    We will discover and understand how facial recognition works, explore some of the uses of facial recognition, recognize some of the issues surrounding facial recognition (such as privacy and bias in facial recognition) and build a facial recognition application.

  • Natural Language Processing

    Language processing is at the base of voice assistants like Siri and Alexa, automatic translators and chatbots. We appreciate real life applications of this technology, and build a natural language recognition model.

  • Games AI

    Games are a great way to introduce machine learning. The kids can train the computer to be able to do a job they know very well – playing a game – that would be difficult to do using the rules-based approach to coding that they normally use.

  • AI in Context

    The specific knowledge on AI is put in context by exploring a wide range of machine learning applications and assessing the social and ethical impact of the use of AI algorithms in society and how it can shape our future.

  • Practical projects and final presentation

    The many hands-on experiences done during the course will become the base for the planning, designing and prototyping of a final project done by students induvidually or in teams. It will be presented in front of parents.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 授業の休む場合の振替はどうなりますか?

    AI開発コースは、概念の理解が難しく個別学習ではなく授業形式で行います。そのためお振替のご用意が出来かねますが、次回授業ご参加時に講師がフォローアップ致します。

  • その他の割引やキャンペーンはありますか?

    お友達と一緒にご参加でお互いの受講料がずっと税込500円引になります。その他ごきょうだい割引や一部教室によっては割引制度がありますので詳しくはお問い合わせください。

  • 英語学習は含まれておりますか?

    基本的な文法や単語等を学習する英語の授業は含まれておりません。全て英語でプログラミングを学習します。

  • プログラミング未経験でもAIコースに参加できますか?

    参加いただけます。このコースはAIの概念を理解するコースとなります。プログラミングの前提知識がなくてもご参加頂くことができます。

  • 英語が得意ではないですが参加できますか?

  • 1人で通学ができますか?出席退室記録はありますか?

    スクールからの制限はございませんが、携帯電話や見守りGPSなどを携帯させることをお薦め致します。またYouCode全ての教室で、出席退室をお知らせする通知サービスがございます。

  • 保護者は授業中に教室にいてもいいですか?

    ご体験時を除き、集中力の低下防止などを理由に原則お断りをしております。
