IBM-CBSE AI K-12 Curriculum 



Need for the Program

What is AI and why is it important today?

The advent of digital technologies, social media and Internet of Things is resulting in huge amounts of data being created. It is a famous saying today that data never sleeps!
AI is a discipline in computer science that focuses on developing intelligent machines, machines that can learn and then teach themselves. These machines, then, can process vast amount of data than humans can, and several times faster. However, AI can go across all disciplines to change the world for the better– from creating new healthcare solutions, to designing hospitals of the future, improving farming and our food supply, helping refugees acclimate to new environments, improving educational resources and access, and even cleaning our oceans, air, and water supply. The potential for humans to improve the world through AI is endless, as long as we know how to use it.
