Session: AI Bias and AI Access • Discussing about the possible bias in data collection • Discussing about the implications of AI technologyTo gain awareness around AI bias and AI access.
Recommended Activity: Balloon Debate • Students divide in teams of 3 and 2 teams are given same theme. One team goes in affirmation to AI for their section while the other one goes against it. • They have to come up with their points as to why AI is beneficial/harmful for the society.To let the students analyse the advantages and disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence.
Sub unitSession / Activity / PracticalLearning Outcomes
Problem ScopingSession: Introduction to AI Project Cycle • Problem Scoping • Data Acquisition • Data Exploration • Modelling • EvaluationIdentify the AI Project Cycle framework.
Activity: Brainstorm around the theme provided and set a goal for the AI project. • Discuss various topics within the given theme and select one. • List down/ Draw a mindmap of problems related to the selected topic and choose one problem to be the goal for the project.Learn problem scoping and ways to set goals for an AI project.
Activity: To set actions around the goal. • List down the stakeholders involved in the problem. • Search on the current actions taken to solve this problem. • Think around the ethics involved in the goal of your project.Identify stakeholders involved in the problem scoped. Brainstorm on the ethical issues involved around the problem selected.
Activity: Data and Analysis • What are the data features needed? • Where can you get the data? • How frequent do you have to collect the data? • What happens if you don’t have enough data? • What kind of analysis needs to be done? • How will it be validated? • How does the analysis inform the action?Understand the iterative nature of problem scoping for in the AI project cycle. Foresee the kind of data required and the kind of analysis to be done.
Presentation: Presenting the goal, actions and data.Share what the students have discussed so far.
Data AcquisitionActivity: Introduction to data and its types. Students work around the scenarios given to them and think of ways to acquire data.Identify data requirements and find reliable sources to obtain relevant data.
Data ExplorationSession: Data Visualisation • Need of visualising data • Ways to visualise data using various types of graphical tools.To understand the purpose of Data Visualisation
Recommended Activity: Let’s use Graphical Tools • To decide what kind of data is required for a given scenario and acquire the same. • To select an appropriate graphical format to represent the data acquired. • Presenting the graph sketched.Use various types of graphs to visualise acquired data.
ModellingSession: Decision Tree To introduce basic structure of Decision Trees to students.Understand, create and implement the concept of Decision Trees.
Recommended Activity: Decision Tree To design a Decision Tree based on the data given.
Recommended Activity: Pixel It • To create an “AI Model” to classify handwritten letters. • Students develop a model to classify handwritten letters by diving the alphabets into pixels. • Pixels are then joined together to analyse a pattern amongst same alphabets and to differentiate the different ones.Understand and visualise computer’s ability to identify alphabets and handwritings.
