ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS

Steamlabs consults for organisations worldwide, developing programs to teach AI, coding, digital fabrication and other STEM topics. The goal of our AI programs is for people to have a broad understanding of Artificial Intelligence to use it as a tool in their lives as well as to empower them to advocate for equitable, ethical policies from companies and governments.

 

 

At Steamlabs, we believe that understanding AI technology and the fundamentals of machine learning does not have to be intimidating and inaccessible for anyone to start learning. These complex systems can be broken down into approachable and easy to follow interactive activities and explanations.

USE OUR AI ACTIVITIES

All activities come with easy to follow teaching guides and workshops!

We have developed a series of Artificial Intelligence education programs. Our programs tackle diverse aspects of AI technology from the technology inside the black box to the social disruption and ethical problems they create. They are grounded in the education principles of inquiry learning to foster skills needed in the 21st century such as critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration. The topics are chosen to be relevant to the lives of the participants by making them useful and interesting.

We are publishing these activities here for use by educators worldwide. We welcome your feedback and would love to hear from you about how these can be useful to your organization. Reach out to us at info@steamlabs.ca!

AI Animated Slogan

Did you know that we see at least 10 million different shades of colour all around us? We can also use an AI to interpret different shades of colours and create some really awesome animations! Let’s explore all the way we can use AI to make colourful animations

Technical Concepts

  • Natural language processing
  • Detecting intent from a slogan
  • Inferencing mood and colour from the intent
  • Generating colour palette using the inferenced colours
  • P5 Animation creation

 

Ethical Concepts

  • Detecting the intent of the slogan incorrectly?
  • What happens when AI misunderstands our words?
  • Colour interpretation of different ethnic group around the world and how AI can analyze that

 

OUR PAST AI EVENTS

Marble Runs, Mechanisms and AI Judges

Build a marble race track with marble flippers, servo-activated starting gates and even train a full-fledged AI judge to impartially tell you the winner of each race!

Vision Recognition AI for Zookeeper

Vision Recognition AI for Zookeepers is the first in a series of workshops designed to give kids an overview of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies and societal implications. 

PLAY, DESIGN, MAKE & CELEBRATE

 Children build confidence in the use of hand-tools and digital fabrication machines such as our laser-cutter or our bank of 3D printers. They learn to code using physical robotics, progressing quickly from MakeCode to industry-standard Python.
