Sun 4 Nov 2018 10:30 - 11:00 at Beacon Hill - Panel: Block Abstractions for AI

Block-based programming languages, such as Scratch and MIT App Inventor, make computational concepts accessible to those as young as primary school students. As technology advances, so do the abilities of such block-based programming languages. This panel will discuss the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence (AI) abstractions in block-based languages. Specifically, it will address block-based AI challenges, pedagogical value, and applications.
