Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are hot topics in the world of cybersecurity today. Imagine that your program can tell the difference between invasive weeds and vegetables so that a robot can go through a field and only applies herbicide to weeds. With the help of this artificial intelligence course for teens, tasks like this will become a reality this summer. This course covers basic artificial intelligence and machine learning basics and their applications using computer programming, data sets, statistics and more. Students are exposed to state-of-art AI concepts and tools using Cal Poly’s unique Learn by Doing approach.
