These projects include a chatbot, a program that converts handwriting to computer text, a program that recognizes images, and a program that can decide whether a sentence is kind or mean.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand what artificial intelligence is and how it is used in the real world
  • Identify some of the different branches of artificial intelligence
