Today, in the first episode of our Black in AI series, we’re joined by Randi Williams, PhD student at the MIT Media Lab.
At the Black in AI workshop Randi presented her research on Popbots: A Early Childhood AI Curriculum, which is geared towards teaching preschoolers the fundamentals of artificial intelligence. In our conversation, we discuss the origins of the project, the three AI concepts that are taught in the program, and the goals that Randi hopes to accomplish with her work. This was a fun conversation!
