Inaugural ‘AI for Kids’ Bootcamp
AI for Kids (AI4K)
Developing interest in AI through a fun, hands-on curriculum
AI for Kids (AI4K) is a programme designed to develop interest and understanding of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning concepts in primary school children. The interactive and hands-on curriculum, which has been specially designed by AI Singapore’s very own AI engineers, in partnership with NUS High students, aims to guide the children to ultimately develop their own AI-centric solutions via Scratch and Microsoft Cognitive Services for a relatable problem they face in their daily lives.
