Grow your confidence in computer science
For students in grades 5 - 12
Spring 2019 Course: Machine Learning 101
Teach a computer to think with Python coding
Teach a computer to play a game or learn. Students will code programs that can train computers to do lots of things using machine learning (the same tech in Amazon Alexa or Google Home), while learning Python - a popular and beginner-friendly programming language. No prior coding experience is required.
