Fire Tech Camp was a great experience and the best camp I've ever been to. I think the camp does a great job in combining fun with learning.Emma, 13yr old programmer

Can a computer choose your clothes? Neural networks in AI
A fascinating exploration of how A.I. applications recognise numbers, text, sound and images. By analysing our photos of our clothing preferences, could a computer choose our next outfit? Let’s give it a go!
Classification Algorithms in A.I.
Classification algorithms are a popular AI application that allows us to group things into categories, making computers “recognise” different stimuli!
A.I. and Neuroscience
Cool fact: A.I. is now built in order to closely mimic neural networks in the human brain!
Building our own classification algorithm
We will use code in Python to build our own classification algorithm! Can we make a computer “see”?

Fire Tech Experiences are regular, super short, high-interest sessions about the very latest developments in technology on topics you will love. Designed and led by inspiring, enthusiastic experts, Fire Tech Experiences introduce you to new worlds and ideas from the comfort of home.
This is a 2-hour experience aimed at teenagers 13-17 years old, with some prior coding experience.
This fascinating session will explain the principles behind Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) , a method used by A.I. applications to recognise numbers, text, sound and images. For example, by analysing photos of our clothing preferences, could a computer choose our next outfit? Let’s give it a go!
The CNN method was inspired by the way neurons communicate with each other in our brains; computers try to mimic the architecture of the human brain and process data both in parallel and sequentially in order to recognise stimuli they’ve never been exposed to. Incredible!
In the first half of this Fire Tech Experience, we’ll familiarise ourselves with the principles of CNN, how they work, their structure and applications.
In the second half, we will talk about the technical application of CNN, we’ll try to understand the code behind them and attempt to write down a sound recognition algorithm by ourselves!
FireTech Experiences are a new ongoing series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, with the main presenter showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning, and a co-host who is able to take questions from attendees and help respond.
