Artificial intelligence(AI) is impacting the future, virtually every industry and every human being. AI is the ability of a machine to think, learn and perform tasks normally which requires human intelligence. Since AI is transforming different aspects of our lives, it is essential that these technologies should be taught at the school level itself.
With this, Habitat School Al Tallah launched the first School Artificial Intelligence Lab in UAE by upgrading its Cyber Square Lab. Habitat Al Thallah, a school under Habitat Schools, is the first school in UAE with an Artificial Intelligence Lab. The school will be teaching Artificial Intelligence from the academic year 2020-21 to all the students of the school with Cyber Square curriculum which is aligned to CBSE. Inorder to equip the students for the digital world, all the schools under Habitat Schools are teaching its students in coding or computer programming from Grade 1 onwards.
The new Artificial Intelligence Lab was inaugurated by ‘aiHab’, a robot mascot of the school’s AI program.
The purpose of this initiative is to help students to have a better understanding of the latest technologies and how it impacts the future of learning and the future of work. It provides a wide approach in programming and enables them to apply knowledge using the latest technologies in their projects. This lab will help the students to improve their skills like programming skills, logical thinking, problem-solving skills, create projects in Robotics, IoT, Web Applications and Artificial Intelligence.
