Applied Data Science & Artificial Intelligence with Python

One-Week Course | Ages 12-18

Build Neural Nets to Play Games and Do Your Homework

Artifical Intelligence and automation are expected to replace nearly half of all jobs that are currently done by 16-24 year olds. Get ahead of this trend by learning how the machines that will do those jobs work! This course builds on students existing knowledge of the basics of Python and machine learning. Students will build a digital machine that can do a book report and have the opportunity to build neural nets that play games and translate text.

At the beginning of the week, students will explore how artificial intelligence applies to data, tools, and services then learn how they can apply AI to their own projects. By the end of the week, students will dive in the theory and math of machine learning, and solve data problems using those skills and strategies.

More About This Course

Computer programming code runs your devices and the world. Our Programming courses prepare students with the skills they need to develop their own apps and games in languages such as C#, Java, and Swift. In the AI and Machine Learning course, students will take a deep dive into the complex algorithms that are making computers smarter than ever. Use neural nets to finally beat that game you’ve never been able to or improve projects using computer vision to find patterns. No programming experience is required, but a strong understanding of algebra and comfort with mathematics is very highly recommended.

The Teen Experience: Since 2002, Digital Media Academy has been encouraging and inspiring teens to become the next generation of developers, animators, filmmakers, photographers, designers and engineers. In addition to developing teens’ interests and passions for the latest in new tech, our camps foster personal growth, confidence, and independence; preparing students for life beyond high school and college.

“When my son joined the Intro to AI & Machine Learning program, it was all new to him but he left knowing the program and software very well. He was excited to share and explain all he learned which was very rare to see coming from him. I’m thrilled with the outcome.”
