What is AI?
Artificial Intelligence refers to computer systems designed to mimic the way humans think and reason. Some AIs are built for a very specific purpose, like the ones that recomment shows, videos, or social media posts to you. Others, like ChatGPT, are very general in their scope, and can accomplish a wide variety of tasks. But all of them are tools, programmed by people, to do work for people.
is a great jumping off point for those looking to take a deeper dive into what AI is and what you should know. The article addresses ChatGPT as well as the dangers of Artificial Intelligence. One important point the article mentions is that Artificial intelligence is still in its infancy and we by no means expect this toolkit to be your only resource. We hope that you will be able to use the resources and activities included to support your endeavors, as K-12 educators, in designing and implementing lessons and curriculum, answering some questions on what AI really is, and all the places we are already using it.
