What is AI and machine learning?
Year level [9-10]
Students gain understanding of AI and machine learning.
1. Define AI:
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been an integral part of our lives whether we have realized it or not. When we book a ticket online, scroll through our newsfeed on our social networking account, or read the recommendations from an ecommerce site, we are engaging with an AI component in the background (Medium, 2019). Even the simple chat assistant that we sometimes encounter whilst shopping online or ordering food is driven by AI.
Artificial Intelligence is an attempt to make a computer, a robot, or other piece of technology ‘think’ and process data in the same way as we humans do. AI therefore has to study how the human brain ‘thinks’, learns, and makes decisions when it tries to solve problems or execute a task. The aim of AI is to improve technology by adding functionality related to the human acts of reasoning, learning, and problem-solving. Here are a few practical examples to demonstrate how AI has penetrated our everyday lives to provide services that we can use extensively to make our lives easier.
2. Discuss what is machine learning and research about it.
3. Define machine learning:
“Often used interchangeably with artificial intelligence, machine learning however has a different meaning.
It is the ‘learning’ component of AI that the machine derives from experience using data given to it for training and data it gathers itself.
The primary objective of machine learning is to ensure that the machine learns effectively from this data. In other words, machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computer systems with the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.
Machine learning as a science focuses on the development of computer programs that can access data and use it to learn for themselves”.
4. Use own word to explain machine learning in class.
