Python and AI - Build Algorithms
Suitable for students in Middle School and High School (Grades 6-10)
Students learn Python Data Science Packages SciKit Learn and use supporting Python packages such as Pandas for Dataframes and Numpy. Students will build a custom AI project with algorithms entirely in Python.
Learn to build machine learning models using one of the most popular programming languages for applications and data science - Python, from the comfort of you home, completely online! Now is the time for your child to get introduced to the world of coding in Python and Artificial Intelligence (AI)!
Prerequisites: Some experience with basic python concepts such as input/output, loops and conditionals.
Learn Artificial Intelligence - a new technology that is shaping our world!
Students enrolling are expected to have a basic background in python (data structures, functions, importing modules etc). Any student who has taken an entry level python course with us (PA1 or Summer Camp) automatically qualifies for this course.
Why learn Python?
Python is a language in very high demand because of its versatility and penetration into just about every industry. It can be used for building artificial intelligence systems, web development, graphic design, gaming and the list goes on.
Now is the time for your child to get introduced to the world of coding and python. All our classes are designed around projects that they build incrementally by using concepts learnt in each consecutive class.
Why join AIClub Summer Camp?
• Designed and taught by PhDs and AI Experts
• Proven - hundreds of K-12 students have built custom projects. Some have won STEM and Innovation competitions
• Only workshops where students can build Python powered AIs and publish them online! Students love building AIs and learning how they work
• Fun! Students build many programs and complete a project of their choice.
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.
Please see our brochure for more info about our programs!
This course introduces students to python packages like scikit-learn and how to use them for training an AI algorithm. The course will cover both Machine Learning and basic Neural Networks (Multi-Layer Perceptrons) and using them directly in Python via scikit-learn.
The core concepts they will learn are:
• How scikit-learn can be used to train ML algorithms.
• Build AI algorithms from scratch.
• How to modify data and tune the algorithm to improve training and prediction performance.
• Use the data processing, data structures and math libraries in conjunction with the ML algorithms and understand the relationship.
• How to experiment with public datasets and process public datasets in Python for use in their AI applications.
• For their custom project, they will generate or optimize datasets, train an AI natively in Python and compare to in-built modules performance.
The students will build a custom project in Python and learn how to debug, test and present their final application in a demonstration. With the knowledge gained in this class, students can access public datasets like Kaggle, process the data in python, and do their own programming to continuously retrain the algorithms with new data.
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.
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!
