Course Overview

Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is the hottest topic in tech right now and is already having a significant impact on our lives. Want to know how a computer named ‘Deep Blue’ beat a chess grand master over twenty years ago? Or how the Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) behind AlphaGo beat the best human ‘GO’ player in the world?

Learn how to create complex Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) models. Make a celebrity response bot, make and then train a video game to play itself, and even create a friendly alien detector!

This is an excellent course for children interested in technology, coding and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). Also, absolutely no previous programming knowledge is required. Perfect for beginners who are curious to learn more about one of the hottest and dynamic tech topics around!

“AI and machine learning will impact the future of all of us – but the kids will be those most affected. Their lives and careers will require a different set of skills to those we use to today.” Read our interview A.I. expert Professor Michael Luck

This course is also available in part-time and in-person formats.

"All the staff were amazing and really helpful. This course really boosted my confidence with computers and video game design. It was really fun and I made a lot of friends I'll be sorry to say goodbye to. Writing the coding was even more fun than playing the games."
