Students in Computer Concepts are currently being introduced to the concept of machine learning. Their job was to build an algorithm to classify pasta (for the King of PastaLand who needed to find his pasta quickly) just as apps like Facebook classify people for the purpose of facial recognition. Building a classification system for pasta involved studying the properties of each piece of pasta, such as whether a piece was hollow or in a spiral, just as measurements of things like distance between your eyes and length of your nose can be used in facial recognition. Students are also exploring online tools such as the Teachable Machine and Quick Draw which are able to “train” themselves to recognize actions or drawings.
