Artificial Intelligence Academy

Two-Week Academy | Ages 12-18

Use Python to Build Advanced AI Neural Nets

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!

In this course, we’ll take a closer look at machine learning tools like the leading development language for AI Python, and use them to do amazing things. Teach a computer to play your favorite game, create interactive simulations, or train it to find patterns a human could not see. Using programming and mastery of algorithms, find uses for computers that you never thought possible!

Week 1, Intro to Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning with Python: At the beginning of the first week, students will understand the basics of how machine learning and AI work, affects our world, and start making their own machine learning-powered projects with block-based programming. As the course progresses, students will master the basics of programming in python, creating machine learning projects like chatbots, predictive models, and bots that learn to play games.

Week 2, Applied Data Science & Artificial Intelligence with Python: At the beginning of the second week, students will explore ways that AI is applied to data, tools, and how services, and 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.

Join Digital Media Academy and get ahead of the AI revolution!

About Artificial Intelligence + Coding Courses

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 Academy, 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. Explore more coding and artificial intelligence courses.

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.

Friday Showcase

At the end of each week, attendees can invite their family and friends to join us for a showcase celebration to share their final projects. Learn more about the fun and exciting activities your child experienced during the week and have an opportunity to meet your child’s instructor. Presentations vary by course topic and instructors will highlight some of the important concepts covered during the week and possible next steps to continue your child’s learning. Arrive early as showcase begins at 3:00 and is typically finished by 4:00.
