Day of AI
Day of AI is an initiative developed by leading faculty and educators from MIT RAISE, to engage kids in creative discovery, discussion and play as they learn the fundamentals of AI, investigate the social impact of these technologies, and bring artificial intelligence to life through lessons and activities that are accessible to all.
Day of AI curriculum includes a few hours of hands-on activities that, at Damavis, we have translated and adapted into Spanish in order to bring this initiative to schools and educational centers in Spanish-speaking countries, thus facilitating and promoting the participation of teachers and educators who wish to teach these lessons in Spanish.
An opportunity to help your students shape our future
Day of AI will be celebrated on May 13, 2022, when K-12 students across the country are invited to participate in a series of free, hands-on activities designed to introduce them to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it plays a part in their daily lives (Why did that YouTube video appear on my screen? What is a deepfake? How did my phone recognize me?).
All Day of AI activities are designed to be taught by educators with little or no technology background and to be accessible to students of all backgrounds and abilities, including those with little or no technology experience. The only requirements are an internet connection and a Chromebook or laptop computer.
Personal Image Classifier: PICaboo
High School (Computer Science Track)
Students will learn what AI is and isn’t and focus on a type of artificial intelligence called machine learning. They will explore a machine learning example called “image classification”, as a way for computers to put what they see into various buckets. Students will use the programming language, App Inventor, to make a game with their own Personal Image Classification (PIC) model.
The course will finish with students looking at bias in machine learning systems including facial recognition applications, leading to a discussion of some of the ethical issues that arise in the use of AI in our everyday lives.
