Koding Next x STEMI: Introducing Parents to Prepare Their Child for the World of AI
What is AI?
Artificial Intelligence (AI), is when computers are made to think and learn like humans. It helps them do smart things, like recognizing pictures, talking to us, and making decisions. The benefits of AI are numerous. It can automate repetitive tasks, improve efficiency, enhance decision-making, enable personalized experiences, and contribute to advancements in various fields such as healthcare, transportation, and communication. Additionally, AI has the potential to solve complex problems, drive innovation, and create new opportunities for economic growth and societal advancement.
However, behind its numerous benefits, AI can have a significant impact on kids by fostering critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and creativity. It can also expose them to emerging technologies, preparing them for the future job market and empowering them to become active participants in an AI-driven world.
Therefore, it is crucial for parents to equip their children with the necessary skills to prepare them for the world of AI.
