Artificial Intelligence: Code Your Own Chatbot (Age 12+)



Language: English

This course is aimed to introduce students to Artificial Intelligence (AI).  AI is all about making computer smart!  It is a new trend in our technology world, where computers are able to learn and sometimes outsmart humans.

Other than being introduced to Python (a popular programming language in the modern days), students will learn about important AI concepts and algorithms.  Students will explore classical AI with examples and projects, on the theoretical side they will learn about various searching and lookup algorithms.  Some specific topics include Narrow AI vs AGI, search tree, binary search and hashing.  They will be building simple game AI, implementing different algorithms and of course creating their own Chatbots.

Course Projects

  • Create an efficient number guesser
  • Creater unbeatable tic-tac-toe game AI

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
