Hi, I’m Sien. I am a pre-service teacher doing my Master of Teaching at WA. I was introduced to the idea of machine learning after a discussion on High Frequency Trading during my Bachelors of Economics.

AI became more and more prominent in the news in recent years. For example, the DeepMind AI beating top StarCraft players. This was interesting because StarCraft is an example of a partial information game. The AI had to adapt to new information based on previously unknown opponent’s moves. Compared to games such as Checkers, Chess or Go, which are perfect information game and the opponent’s moves are a bit more predictable.

I hope to learn more about how AI programs are created and the process of how the programs ‘learn.’ I also want to learn how to teach it in a primary school setting that is accessible.
