To the general public, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is complicated and impossible to understand. However, it’s an approach to managing and processing data; it’s rooted in engineering; a way of problem-solving and designing solutions in an entirely new way
Edge computing is computing that’s done at or near the source of the data, without the need of subscribing to a public cloud, reducing overall entry barrier to learn and apply the latest AI technology, making it more approachable to teachers and students.
Why self-driving cars?
Amid the idea of a self-driving car is actively studied and tested for use on the road, with many open-source software, powerful single boards computers (which are well known to school) and machine learning tools available on the market, it becomes easier for teachers and students to create a self-driving vehicle.
Motivate students to learn the latest AI technology without the need of expensive equipment via constructing such a car on a small scale using parts and software that are accessible to anyone on an affordable budget.
