More About the Program
This program revolves around the applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in society. On the first day of the camp, the students will be introduced to AI through a series of group hands-on activities that will illustrate how AI works.
On the second day, the girls will see AI in action by engaging in an online program that allows them to create their own AI project. This activity will teach the girls about machine learning -- a branch of AI in which the machine can learn on its own and improve with experience. Through Microsoft’s Custom Vision software, the girls will train the computer to recognize the hand gestures of rock, paper, & scissors. After creating the rock, paper, & scissors exercise, the girls will build their own projects with different gestures to teach the computer. This second day of the camp provides the girls with a deep understanding of how AI and machine learning work.
On the third and fourth days of the camp, the girls will create two AI projects using the Raspberry Pi. We will teach the Raspberry Pi to play a cheering sound when we raise our hands in the air (as if we are cheering). The girls will set up their camera, capture snapshots with different angles & lighting, record the data, train the network on the data, and finally, run their network.
