Artificial Intelligence Academy

Two-Week Academy | Ages 12-18

Use Python to Build Advanced AI Neural Nets

Artificial 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.

About Artificial Intelligence + Coding Courses

Artificial Intelligence courses at Digital Media Academy are overseen by Dr. Yuval Shahar, M.D., Ph.D, an AI pioneer and leader in the field of artificial intelligence in medicine. Dr. Shahar is a computer scientist and physician, and a researcher in the multidisciplinary field of artificial intelligence in medicine, focusing on medical decision-support systems for physicians and for patients, and on automated knowledge discovery from time-oriented clinical data. Dr. Shahar received his Ph.D. from Stanford University, in 1994, where he continued to work as a Senior Research Scientist and Assistant Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics) and Computer Science until 2000. In 2000, Dr. Shahar founded and began leading the Medical Informatics Research Center at Ben-Gurion University.

Computer programming code runs your devices and the world. 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 highly recommended. Explore more coding and artificial intelligence courses.
