(View Complete Item Description)

This course, AI in Practice: Preparing for AI, is the 1st course of the online education program AI in Practice. The course gives you a kaleidoscope of examples of applications of AI in various organizations, outlines the state of the art in modern AI research, and provides practical tools for integrating AI into your own organization. The program AI in Practice is built from two initial courses, AI in Practice: Preparing for AI and AI in Practice: Applying AI. The AI in Practice: Preparing for AI course is designed for people who want to apply AI in their own practical situation. For the experienced manager who wants to know what AI can do for her own organization. For the data analyst or business consultant who wants to understand how AI can be applied in the business processes of the company for which they work. For the student who wants to understand how the results of AI research can be translated into practical applications.

AI in Practice: Applying AI

(View Complete Item Description)

Learn about the implementation and practical aspects of Artificial Intelligence and how to write a plan for applying AI in your own organization in a step-by-step manner. This course is not about difficult algorithms and complex programming; it is a course for anyone interested in learning how to integrate AI into their own organization. To understand how current Artificial Intelligence applications can be successfully integrated in organizations, we look at different examples. For instance, how ING uses reinforcement learning for personalized dialog management with its customers or how Radboud UMC uses diagnostic image analysis to discover early stages of infectious diseases. As part of our two-course program ‘AI in Practice’, this course will guide you in the practical aspects of applying AI in your own organization. You will examine typical applications of AI in use already and learn from their experience. These include challenges of implementation, lifecycle aspects, as well as the maintenance and management of AI applications. The course presents a variety of case studies from actual situations in public organizations and private enterprises in the healthcare, financial, retail and telecommunications sectors. These include Radboud UMC, the Municipality of Amsterdam, ING, Ahold Delhaize and KPN. ‘AI in Practice – Applying AI’ gives you the ammunition to understand the practical aspects required for the implementation of a variety of AI applications in your organization.

Facial Recognition/Artificial Intelligence

(View Complete Item Description)

Asking the question, “What is human-computer interaction - artificial intelligence? Students come to understand what artificial intelligence is in most everyday life, discussing the privacy, pros and cons of this topic and exploring with artificial intelligence activities online. This lesson plan includes using the Google Vision Kit to explore various pre-loaded facial recognition programs and advance programming students can access the Python code, manipulate the code and test the changes.

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Creation Story

(View Complete Item Description)

My unit will align with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for Advanced Placement Literature students, although it could be adapted to other texts that pose the same question: Will we be cautious in creating technology, or will our creations ultimately harm us? Many dystopian futures feature violent revolts on humans from mistreated robots. These stories resonate because they mirror past brutality against African slaves, proposals to purify humanity in the Eugenics Movement, and recent mistreatment of immigrants. When we create more beautiful, more intelligent, and more talented humanoid entities to think for us, to entice us, and to comfort us, how will we view ourselves? Our virtual assistants have female voices. Does this amplify biased views of gender? If we treat our virtual assistants as slaves, will this increase our hatred towards other humans? Will our lives become completely irrelevant? In this unit, students will research the current state of robotics, and draw comparisons between our modern creations and the moral and technological warning in Frankenstein, encouraging students to think about the technology they use, feel agency in determining its future, and strive towards creating tools for a more humane world.

Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom: A Guide for Computer Science Teachers

(View Complete Item Description)

The projects in this guide use a student-driven approach to learning. Instead of simply learning about AI through videos or lectures, the students completing these projects are active participants in their AI exploration. In the process, students work directly with innovative AI technologies, participate in “unplugged” activities that further their understanding of how AI technologies work, and create various authentic products—from machine learning models to video games—to demonstrate their learning. Project 1: Programming with Machine Learning Project 2: AI-Powered Players in Video Games Project 3: Using AI for Robotic Motion Planning Project 4: Machine Learning as a Service Visit the ISTE website with all the free practical guides for engaging students in AI creation: https://www.iste.org/areas-of-focus/AI-in-education

Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom: A Guide on Ethics and AI

(View Complete Item Description)

In this guide, students’ exploration of AI is framed within the context of ethical considerations and aligned with standards and concepts, and depths of understanding that would be appropriate across various subject areas and grade levels in K–12. Depending on the level of your students and the amount of time you have available, you might complete an entire project, pick and choose from the listed activities, or you might take students’ learning further by taking advantage of the additional extensions and resources provided for you. For students with no previous experience with AI education, exposure to the guided learning activities alone will create an understanding of their world that they likely did not previously have. And for those with some background in computer science or AI, the complete projects and resources will still challenge their thinking and expose them to new AI technologies and applications across various fields of study. Project 1: Fair's Fair Project 2: Who is in Control? Project 3: The Trade-offs of AI Technology Project 4: AI and the 21st Century Worker Visit the ISTE website with all the free practical guides for engaging students in AI creation: https://www.iste.org/areas-of-focus/AI-in-education.
