What do self-driving cars, Alexa, and iPhone’s face recognition technology have in common? Artificial intelligence (AI) advances are driving them, changing the world around us.
Whether you are interested in law, healthcare, art, or economics, AI is poised to revolutionize almost every discipline and industry in the future.
In healthcare, AI can diagnose patients based on medical scans, such as X-rays.
In sustainability, AI efficiently places energy sources (i.e., wind, solar, gas) across a country to maximize coverage.
In astronomy, AI models can be trained to detect and characterize exoplanets.
And these are just a few examples!
According to a 2020 article from Forbes, “one day, [AI] may help us eradicate war, disease, and poverty.” Therefore, future generations will need to learn AI to help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
Why Students Need to Learn AI
Each new technology brings benefits, risks, and hesitancy around how these tools to influence society.
While we cannot wholly predict how AI will impact our society in the future, we can engage in critical conversations about the ethics of AI and the affordances of using this tool as a force for good.
We can also educate the next generation of students to understand how AI works and its potential impact. By learning about AI from an early age, students will be better positioned to use AI through a lens of social impact confidently.
Yet, despite the growing presence of artificial intelligence in various careers, there are not too many opportunities or resources available for K-12 students to learn AI concepts and software applications.
Because of this, Inspirit AI has developed courses to bring interdisciplinary computer science and artificial intelligence curriculum to students worldwide.
About Inspirit AI
We started Inspirit AI to inspire students of all interests at an early age to understand and apply artificial intelligence to improve the world. Developed and taught by Stanford and MIT graduates, Inspirit AI enrichment programs expose curious students globally to AI through live online classes.
The potential to use this technology for good is limitless. We hope to bring the most recent developments in AI from courses and labs in Silicon Valley to empower students globally.
Our project-based courses expose students to real-world applications of AI, including medical imaging, disaster relief, and other social impact areas. With a
student-teacher ratio of 5:1, our program is developed and taught exclusively by instructors who specialize in AI and education.
Our courses have reached thousands of students across the globe. Our students have joined us from 70+ countries from beginner to advanced levels!
