Tackling Cyberbullying with ML & Scratch

March 17 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Workshops, online resources and multi-day conferences for traditional and non-traditional educators.

About this event

Have you ever wondered about the technology that powers your voice assistants? Applications like Siri and Alexa are possible thanks to Machine Learning models and large amounts of data! In this interactive session we’ll use a friendly, code-free way to create models and explore the applications of data to detect potential cyberbullying. We’ll engage in a discussion on bias in data, data privacy, and how to responsibly use Machine Learning to make automated decisions. To top it off, we’ll create an interactive chat-bot in Scratch to use our cyberbullying-detection model!

This session can be applied to grades 4-6.
