Coding & Artificial Intelligence with Python (UBC)

Students will create their own artificial intelligence like chatbots, natural language processing, and recommendation systems. Use AI tools like Machine Learning to create smart programs like chatbots in scratch and utilize Google Assistant to create gender recognizers, or recommend movies. Artificial Intelligence and automation are expected to replace nearly half of all jobs that are currently done by 16-24-year-olds. Get ahead of this trend by learning how the machines that will do those jobs work! At the beginning of the week, students will get a chance to explore the world of artificial intelligence and machine learning, understanding how it affects our lives today and how it can be used for projects. Students also learn the basics of coding in Python. By the end of the week, students will have learned the foundations of programming and training machine learning models, image recognizers, and practiced coding fundamentals.
