In 1956, the founders of Artificial Intelligence (AI) imagined a world in which “machines use language, form abstractions and concepts, solve the kinds of problems now reserved for humans, and improve themselves”.1

Our pedagogy seeks to foster interactive learning by enabling students to take ownership of AI systems, and to make such systems work for their needs and those of their communities, via both data and algorithms.
