Why Technovation Families? (AI Family Challenge)
Technologies are advancing rapidly. Families from all around the world should be able to play an active role in future innovation. According to the study, more than 65% of children will be having completely new jobs with robots that don’t even exist yet. For the cause of competing with future, Technovation families program insist on,
- Build lifelong learner mindsets.
- College and career readiness for kids and their parents.
- Learn and create together.
How it will work?
Each child (8-14) works with their parents to identify a problem and build a solution using AI technology. Families compete to gain entry to the AI World Championship. With online tools, families can build machine learning models to recognize pictures, text and more (like preferences).
There will be a total of 7 sessions (each of 3 hours) divided as follows,
- 3 lessons: Foundational concepts (compulsory)
- 4 lessons: Ideation (brainstorm and plan solution) Build an invention (Optional)
What to submit in AI Championship?
- 3-minute video on your invention
- 2-4 pictures with 20-word limits on captions
- 2 required + 4 optional descriptions/answers to prompts
With 20 word descriptions
● Your invention’s dataset
● Your invention (or a drawing of it)
● Must be 3 minutes (or less)
● 100 words to describe your invention
● 50 words to describe how the AI in your invention works and why AI is needed for the problem
