Introduction to Deep Neural Networks and Image Classification

In this summer camp, students with no prior experience, learn Neural Networks and Deep Learning, and build a custom project for Image Classification. Previous students who have taken this camp, with no previous AI experience, have built competition grade projects to identify emotions, diagnose diseases and more.

Learn a core skill that is in demand by future jobs from the comfort of your home, completely online! With more than 25% of jobs moving to automation and AI, now is the time for your child to get introduced to the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI)!
 

Learn Artificial Intelligence - a new technology that is shaping our world!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is how Google search, Alexa, Siri, auto-correct, speech translation, face recognition, self-driving cars, etc. learn from data and humans. Get your student an edge in school, competitions and preparation for college and careers by learning AI!

Why learn AI?

AI is all around us! From self driving cars, to movie recommendations on Netflix, to Alexa, Siri or Google homes, we interact with AIs every day. Learn how they work, how they “think” and how you can build one of your own!

Parents - AI is a technology that is changing our lives and future careers. It is a great time to introduce your child to the field of Artificial Intelligence! In our innovative classes and camps - students learn the powerful technologies of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in a fun and accessible way, and build working projects immediately. Most of our students want to learn more AI, programming and math even after finishing a class! Some have gone forward to win competitions! Spark a love of technology that will stay with them through college, powered by our comprehensive Elementary, Middle School and High School programs where they can continue to learn AI and Programming!

Kids - Would you like to teach an AI to play games like shooting targets or tic-tac-toe? Build fun AI apps that can predict your favorite book, favorite Pokemon, or sport? Are you passionate about solving problems in your community like improving recycling, helping the blind, or helping reduce bullying? All of these projects have been done by students who have learned AI! AI is powerful and easy to learn and can be used for all sorts of projects.

Why choose AIClub Summer Camps?

• Designed by AI experts with PhDs in Computer Science!

• Only workshops where students build AIs in their first class! Students love building AIs and learning how they work!

We have no math or programming requirement. If they would like to code, they can do that also! Kids get interested and start building fun AI applications and also get motivated to learn programming, math and more STEM topics.

Description

Students will learn what deep learning is, how AI works and will build a custom project to train their own AI!. There is no math or programming pre-requisite to join this class!
 

Students will learn about different types of deep neural networks, their architecture, how to train them etc. They will also learn about a technique called transfer learning that helps to build powerful Neural Networks quickly and efficiently. They will also learn the shortcoming of deep neural networks and the type of problems that can be solved using it.
 

Students will also do a custom project of their choice to build an AI system to solve a problem. They will showcase their project to their parents and peers on the last day of the class.
 

The core AI concepts they will learn are:
 

• Basics of Deep Learning and Neural Networks

• Architecture of a neural network

• Types of neural networks

• How to train a neural network

• Shortcomings of neural networks

• Special types of Neural Networks, particularly Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) and Residual Neural Networks (ResNet)

• Employ established patterns of these networks to build powerful image detection applications

• Gain expertise on how to tune Neural Networks and tuning parameters such as learning rate, numbers of layers, epochs and others.

• An introduction to Transfer Learning and how to use it effectively

• An introduction to GPUs and how GPUs help accelerate neural network training

What Students Take Away

• Certificate of Completion from AIClub.

• A cloud account that they can use to build new ML and AI applications using their laptops, tablets or other devices.

• An AIClub membership where they can access new projects, showcase their code, and participate in competitions. Completing the advanced course will equip them with the skills they need to develop and showcase more advanced projects, and compete in advanced competitions.

Schedule 

Duration: 5 sessions / 3 hours per session

We offer a range of dates and times to accommodate busy schedules.

Also - note that since we use entirely online tools, if a student must miss a class, it is easy for them to do the required work at home. We provide materials for missed classes and drop in times for students to come in for personal assistance on material covered in a missed class. We do ask however that the student attend the first and last class since this is needed for them to get oriented and also complete their custom project.

 
 

Reviews

My 12 year old and some of her friends have attended one of the classes. I was really impressed by how much she learnt in one sitting and how intelligently she described what AI was later that evening to a cousin she was talking to. They absolutely loved it! They can't wait for the next batch of classes to start. She is so intrigued, she is requesting me to enroll her for all future classes I can!

My kids (12 and 10) enjoyed the class very much. They are now able to articulate their much deeper understanding of AI with clarity. he approach of the class really opens up kids' imagination and creativity, demystifies AI to kids and makes it easy and fun. The kids also get to give a presentation on their creation -- a great practice for their presentation skill, a much needed real-world skill. I highly recommend this provider!
