AI and Young Engineering

April 1, 2022

What is AI?  AI is a branch of computer science that aims to create an intelligent system. The ability of a machine to think and learn without any explicit programming is known as artificial intelligence.

4 reasons why children should learn about Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

The world is getting accustomed to AI and our children belong to the digital age. They need to know about it as AI literacy is an essential skill in the future. Most of the products we are using are created with the help of AI. Learning it at a young age will help the children understand how it works and what to do with it. They will know how to use it much more efficiently. It will help them in critical thinking and increase their curiosity to learn.

  1. Promote Data Literacy

This is a new language that they will have to acquire in the 21st century.

  • Boosts Imagination

The children will be able to use their imagination and new knowledge to be more innovative.

  • Enhance problem-solving skills

The understanding of how to use AI can help them to be able to solve the problems from a different perspective.

  • Better career prospect

AI is not for the future. It is for the present. It is happening now! Without knowledge about AI, they will be at disadvantage in their career.

According to the research, in the next few years, the number of professions will be replaced using AI.  We will always need doctors, nurses, pilots, teachers, artists, scientists, writers, and all. However, these professions will bring AI to full use. As estimated by World Economic Forum, by 2065, 65% of children in primary school today will work in positions that have not yet been created. We need to get our children to be ahead of the time when it comes to learning and preparing them for the future.
