Free resources to inspire and engage students when teaching AI are now available from the Raspberry Pi Foundation in partnership with DeepMind. This is a new educational programme and a collaboration with leading AI company DeepMind, it offers some fantastic resources for secondary-school teachers and their students.
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning applications are already a part of our daily lives and it is important that young people understand how AI works so that they will be better equipped to engage and embrace the changes that AI will undoubtedly bring.
The AI applications people are building today are predicted to affect many career paths. In 2020, the World Economic Forum estimated that AI would replace some 85 million jobs by 2025 and create 97 million new ones (helloworld.cc/WEF2020). Many of these future jobs will require some knowledge of AI and ML, so it’s important that young people develop a strong understanding from an early age.World Economic Forum
