Join us for a walk-through of a new Bytes of AI lesson: AI & The Environment. This is a great opportunity to learn more about this lesson and how you can implement it in your class.
Bytes of AI are a way to introduce basic concepts of artificial intelligence through a variety of different topics. These can be used to spark an interest in AI before exploring the Open Learning curriculum further. Bytes of AI introduce students and teachers to some of the core ideas of AI including:
- How data becomes output in an AI model
- How human biases enter datasets
- How AI can be used in different fields
AI & The Environment covers how machine learning can have an impact on the environment. You will learn how AI deals with large amounts of data much quicker than a human can, and how environmentalists use the data AI learns from to protect wildlife.
This lesson aligns with CSTA standards and Common Core ELA Literacy standards (see teaching guides for more detailed information). This lesson is approachable to high school students without prior experience in these topics.
