Machine Learning for kids using Scratch

Machine Learning for kids using Scratch

This tool introduces machine learning by providing hands-on experiences for training machine learning systems and building things with them.

It provides an easy-to-use guided environment for training machine learning models for classifying text, numbers or recognising images.

This builds on existing efforts to introduce and teach coding to children, by adding these models to Scratch (a widely used educational coding platform), allowing children to create projects and build games with the machine learning models that they've trained.

Why Machine Learning for Kids?

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 will soon be normal for machine learning systems to drive our cars, and help doctors to diagnose and treat our illnesses.

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.
