A strong foundation for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Python programming language is an elegant language that is easy to understand, interact and easy to implement. It is one of the fastest-growing and popular programming languages. In recent years, Python has evolved to become a crucial option in the mobile app development world. It is the most suitable language for developing apps based on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence is the branch of computer science that deals with the development of smart and intelligent machines that think and work like humans. It helps in creating software or machines that are programmed to think like humans and imitate their actions.  Most of the apps that use speech recognition, predictions, make use of the power of AI. Some common examples are 
  • Chatbots
  • Humanoid robots like Sophia
  • Google’s AI-Powered Predictions
  • Ridesharing Apps Like Uber and Ola
  • Commercial Flights Using an AI Autopilot

Machine Learning

Machine learning is an application of Artificial Intelligence that provides machines the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.  Provided with data, the machine learning algorithms train themselves, in a similar way as human beings do.  In simpler terms, ML is a field of artificial intelligence that extracts patterns from the raw data provided by using an algorithm. Some of the famous examples of ML include:
  • Self-driving Google car
  • Online recommendation offers such as those from Amazon and Netflix
  • Analyzing twitter remarks 
  • Email / Spam filtering
  • Fraud detection in online transactions
  • Virtual Personal Assistants – Siri, Alexa, Google 
  • Online Customer Support

Should kids learn coding at a tender age?

The answer is yes, by most of the great academicians, entrepreneurs and innovators. The main reason is that coding motivates the young brains to think. 

Coding improves Problem Solving Skills

While coding, kids work on real-time problems and find the most feasible solution to them. Solving a coding problem facilitates innovative thinking and the kids find various ways of solving the problem. Finally, they find the optimal solution and the best process to arrive at it.

Coding promotes Logical thinking

The process of devising a solution to a coding problem empowers the child with the ability to think logically. The child can understand other subjects like maths and science that require analytical and logical thinking very easily.

Coding builds Confidence and Perseverance

Committing errors while coding is a very common process. During the process of coding, the child learns that persistent efforts lead to success. This helps in the development of very great quality – perseverance. This in turn boosts the confidence of the child and helps him/her understand that failure is the stepping stone to success. 

Coding with Python is the best choice of programming language for a child.
