“This training was a great introduction to what AI is and what it isn’t.  The pace at which we explored the 5 big ideas in AI was just the right speed to see the big picture, but not become overwhelmed by the minutia of it.  This is what everyone should understand about the future of computing if we are going to use this technology more and more in our everyday lives.  I was supplied with resources that I can share with my students, at a level they will understand, to continue to explore this new and exciting curriculum.  Thank you UBTECH!”
