PictoBlox is a graphical programming platform that teaches machine learning and AI for kids. The AI-enabled platform teaches concepts like face detection and optical character recognition in an approachable, interactive and understandable way.
The block-based coding platform also offers kids an introduction to making their own virtual assistant or training robots to perform simple tasks like pickup up an object or avoiding obstacles in its path. On the platform, kids can also create their very own games from scratch and learn to automate smart objects in the home.
While skills like coding and programming are recognized as valuable for the future, kids can now also get a primer to artificial intelligence and machine learning, which are being integrated into a variety of industries that will need even more knowledgeable minds in the future.
