Artificial Intelligence: level 3

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 3 resource package consists of activities designed to run for around two to three hours which are broken up into separate practical programming activities. Students will explore in greater depth than level 1 & 2 the terms artificial intelligence and machine learning plus learn how to program using an application programming interface (API) using the text based language Python.

This resource package is aimed towards students transitioning from GCSE to A Level Computer Science.  The practical activities consist of:

Using the text programming language Python, 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. This activity will also draw upon prior programming skills.

Developers are relying upon more data sets including incorporating them within machine learning programs. Students will explore the concept of an application programming interface (API) and how they can be used to enhance a user’s experience of a program. Large companies such as Google allow developers to interact with their data sets, students will use the Google Maps API in Python to develop a program that will locate and display an address based upon the users requirements.
