Dear Hannah: LEarning (It's Elementary (Artificial Intelligence)) (5-28-2019)

December 30, 2019

Dear Hannah,

It's not all about engineering with me.

This podcast lesson introduces students to Artificial Intelligence by showing how Boolean Algebra (a system of symbolic logic) can be used to represent “rules” in a virtual world (a video game or simulation).

Teams of 3-4 students will then build and present a virtual world by using Boolean Algebra to create a consistent set of “rules” based on propositions (statements that affirm or deny something) and implications (logical judgements based on evidence and prior observation).

The 'virtual world' that I create in the lesson is one where equality is predicated on both opportunity and circumstance.

Imagine that.
