Description of the methods/ approach

This free tool introduces machine learning by providing hands-on experiences for training machine learning systems and building things with them. It provides as easy-to-use guided environment for training machine learning models to recognize text, numbers, images, or sounds. This builds on existing efforts to introduce and teach coding to children, by adding these models to educational coding platforms Scratch and App Inventor, and helping children create projects and build games with the machine learning models they train.

Machine learning is all around us. We all use machine learning systems every day – such as spam filters, recommendation engines, language translation services, chatbots and digital assistants, search engines, and fraud detection systems. It’s important that kids are aware of how our world works. The best way to understand the capabilities and implications is to be able to build with this technology for themselves.
