Introduction to Deep Neural Networks and Image Classification (M3/H2)

Students with no prior experience, learn Neural Networks and Deep Learning, and build a custom project for Image Classification.
 
Suitable for:

• High School Students

• Or those who have taken AI Basics (M1) and an introductory Algebra class.

• Or those in Grade 8 and higher who have taken an introductory Algebra class.

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?

• 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

This bootcamp enables students to create sophisticated projects using images by leveraging the advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning/Neural Networks. They will choose from a selection of sample projects and create their own project by the end of the bootcamp. Students will use an intuitive, easy to use tool called Navigator to do image classification on the cloud. This course is ideal for high school students who want to use AI on images for innovative science projects, for those who want to build systems using computer vision and cameras, or anyone who wants to learn image classification using deep neural networks.

What students will do:

• Learn the 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

• Choose a project from a list and build an end to end working AI system. We will provide projects in the following categories

• Natural Images: Example, Category detection (Dog vs Cat etc). Emotion detection (Happy vs Sad).

• Scientific applications using medical images: example Cancer detection from histopathology images, diabetes detection from retinal images.

• Game applications using synthetic Images: Category detection (type of emoji etc).

• Learn Tips and tricks on building new projects using the exact same steps they have gone through in the session. Prepare to compete in AI competitions.

• Use the same industry cloud tools that businesses and experts do, We show you how to use them easily. You can use the same tools as you do more advanced classes.

What Students Take Away

• A working image classification project (running application) that you can showcase and share.

• Training in usage of deep neural networks using powerful cloud tools.

• A Navigator account which you can use for future AI projects and competitions.

• Certificate of Completion

Prerequisites

• Bring your own Laptop to class

• You can do the project in any language you like.

• Course in Introductory Algebra
