AI for Nervous Humans is a creative coding workshop that takes a look at what Artificial Intelligence is, reminding ourselves of the incredible things we can do that machines cannot. Using tangible materials such as pen and paper, we will explore how Machine Learning does what it does, and how this helps us understand our brains. We will have a look at some common fears about, and positive potential of AI, and then we will see how easily you can train a simple Machine Learning Algorithm yourself, without any code.

Please note: For the workshop participants will need to have: a pen and some paper.
