AI for HighSchool
Romania suffers from a lack of expertise in the field of Machine Learning and AI. This is actually a more general problem in Europe when compared to US, China, or Canada. Additionally, there is a lack of diversity in the field globally with respect to gender, race, affiliation.
One possible way to address these issues could be to introduce elements of machine learning and AI earlier in education, i.e. before university at highschool level, so that AI knowledge becomes more mainstream and accessible. For this, two elements are required: materials suitable for highschool level and teachers able to teach them.
The goal of this project is to develop AI materials for highschool and set up a training program in Romania for teachers (teach the teachers) anywhere in Europe.
