Dalton Learning Lab’s ai4children.org offers Machine Learning tools for teachers

Hong Kong, 20 December 2017 – the Dalton Learning Lab announces ai4children.org, a website that allows teachers to easily and effectively instruct students about machine learning, a form of artificial intelligence (AI) and one of the dominant technologies of today and the near future.

Developed at the Dalton Learning Lab in cooperation with technology company Outblaze, ai4children.org showcases Scratch extensions with integrated machine learning capabilities.

The new service, currently in beta, offers Scratch-based prototypes integrating machine learning, allowing educators to teach students about artificial intelligence from within the familiar coding medium of Scratch, the visual programming language used by millions of children globally.

With ai4children.org, educators can add a hands-on introduction to artificial intelligence and machine learning in a standard coding class.

Prototypes currently available include:
Flappy Bird Machine Learning Tutorial, in which students train a neural network to learn to play a videogame by using multiple permutations of strategy;

Home Automation, simulating a programmable digital home assistant including voice recognition and voice commands; and

Image Classification, in which students can learn how image recognition services work, and that allows them to experiment, tweak and improve the machine learning program.

All the ai4children.org prototypes are available free of charge to teachers and educators at https://www.ai4children.org/.

Yat Siu, the CEO of Outblaze and co-founder of the Dalton Learning Lab, commented: “Artificial intelligence is increasingly pervasive and dominant. We made the Scratch machine learning prototypes at ai4children.org available to educators in order to foster an understanding from an early age about the fundamental technologies that power our world.”

Set up by technology entrepreneur Yat Siu of Outblaze together with Peggy Yeoh and Eva To, two co-founders of Dalton School Hong Kong (DSHK), the Dalton Learning Lab addresses gaps in Hong Kong’s education system by providing a project-based lab environment where children can experiment and develop useful skills particularly relevant to the future. The Lab also develops technologies and solutions to help prepare children for world of tomorrow.
