About this course

 Can a computer have a conversation? This is the underlying idea behind countless thought experiments since the inception of artificial intelligence. Today, that question is more important than ever, as we begin to have real world conversations with computers every single day. In this class, students will tackle big questions like: do computers understand us? How do computers know what words mean? And what are the consequences of creating a Turing complete computer? Together, we will build a simple chat bot that students can use to impress their friends and family!

What you'll learn

Class 1: A.I in our world today

A.I is all around us, but where exactly is it? How does it work? And how is it affecting our society? We begin our journey by developing recognition of A.I and how it appears in our day-to-day lives. 

Class 2: Alan Turing and Teaching Computers To Talk

We continue by discussing the Turing Test and the history of thought experiments that drive our exploration of artificial intelligence. 

Class 3: Ethics of A.I

A.I is exciting, but it can also be scary. We discuss what a Turing complete machine would mean for the world, how A.I is dangerous and how we can prevent A.I from causing harm in the future.

Class 4: Chat-Bot!

Today, we finalize our final chat-bot project and review the material we’ve covered thus far with quizzes, discussions and presentations of our awesome projects! 

End-of-week Project:  By the end of the 4-class series, our students will have built a chatbot that will be able to tell a joke, respond to questions and even guess whether a user is happy or sad!
