Resource Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
Introduction to Artificial Intelligence is AI for Teachers’ semester long course for high school students. In this class students will explore how and what types of data can be collected for AI systems, how computers can “learn” from these data and use what is learned to help interpret the world and make decisions. Students will identify and explore the implications of AI systems currently in everyday use in areas such as social media, mapping software, and financial institutions, and consider the emerging areas where AI will be applied. Topics also include how AI has been portrayed in popular culture, how AI systems interact with humans, and the ethical considerations surrounding potential societal harm from inappropriately designed, trained, and/or applied AI systems. Students have opportunities to experiment and compute as they explore and solve problems associated with AI.
