The Royal Institute presented their Christmas lectures in the year just gone on the theme of Artificial Intelligence. The 3 hour-long parts are available on iPlayer.
Presented by Professor Mike Wooldridge, of Oxford University, these are not so much lectures as interactive science classes with the audience of school children very much a part of the learning experience.
It’s fascinating to see the building blocks of what it might look like to teach AI in a school setting and to see how the general public can be informed about the benefits and dangers of machine learning technologies. It’s a great watch and a real masterclass in making complex ideas simple and understandable.
