Artificial Intelligence: level 2

This resource forms part of the artificial intelligence resources from the Grand Challenges resource collection.  The introductory video can be found here.

The artificial intelligence – level 2 resource package consists of activities designed to run for around two to three hours which are broken up into separate practical activities. Students will explore in greater depth than level 1 the terms artificial intelligence and machine learning plus consider the ethics of using such tools in medicine.

This resource package is aimed towards 12-14 year olds.  The practical activities consist of:

Using a visual based programming language, students will develop a program that could be used by someone on holiday to suggest local activities on a map based upon their preferences, students will train, develop and test the program to ensure the most suitable activities are suggested. 

Machine learning and artificial intelligence systems are being heavily invested upon within our healthcare system. There are still many questions that are commonly asked around the ethics of using such systems, students will explore how these programs are being adopted in healthcare to improve chances of survival etc. Students will use their knowledge to explore and discuss in more depth the arguments for and against its use. Working in groups, students will act out a court scene scenario posing their arguments for or against the use of AI in our healthcare systems.
