Make your Own Robot

Today we’ll learn about robots, how computers learn… and how they might learn the wrong things. When computers learn to solve problems based on examples, it’s called machine learning. And the examples we use to teach them are called training data.

Design your own robot and draw a picture of it. What does your robot do?

A robot may seem human, but its behaviour is based on sensors and machine learning. A robot can be a diving machine exploring the seabed, a drone flying in the air or even a washing machine taking care of the dishes.

Now teach your robot to recognise letter A. How many differen types of letters can you find? All of those letters are training data for your robot!

Finally let’s fill out how the robot and I will work together.
