CIS promotes Pre-College Activities to facilitate and support outreach to high-school students between the ages of 12-18 and their teachers. In addition we aim to provide simple introductions to the three fundamental pillars of computational intelligence: Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, and Evolutionary Computation which are suitable for beginners who wish to find out more about these areas.
Our vision is to find ways of bringing Computational Intelligence into the classroom to inspire young computer scientists. Watch a short video by Dr. Deana Delp on how this can be achieved and be inspired.
Current Material that is freely available for you to download and use:
- An introduction to Artificial Neural Networks teaching pack including slides and interactive activities
- An introduction to Evolutionary Computation teaching slides with interactive activities
- A downloadable interactive demo which explores four evolutionary algorithms and how they can help solve the Knapsack problem
