Adventures in building a text training page suitable for kids with Cognimates.
Sarah T. Vu and students from the Shady Hill School learning how to train a robot to recognize them with Cognimates
How it all started...
Hi, my name is Sarah, and while I normally prefer to write code, I am writing this blog post to tell you all about a project I’ve been working on for the majority of the past year. This project is called Cognimates, and it’s a platform for AI Education that originated from an MIT Media Lab project. Our original platform was used in our research workshops with kids age 7–14 all around the world (read more about our research). Through this experience, our team collected a lot of user feedback from children, and at the end of last year, we began to formulate a design to revamp the platform and grow it into a more sustainable, open-source project.
