We are 20 years into the 21st century, teach our kids about artificial intelligence
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, STEM education is important because it pervades every part of our lives. STEM is being practiced in almost every part of the world. It is being claimed that STEM-based curriculum deals with real-life situations that help students learn and prepare for the future. On the other hand, some tech-elites reject the claim of STEM intention. Elad Inbar, CEO of RobotLAB, who developed the AI LAB for Education, says STEM is rigid.
“It is 2020 already, we are 20 years into the 21st century, and AI is an integral part of our lives. Isn’t it time to face it in schools as well? We already have semi-autonomous cars, by 2025 (only 5 years from now), 1 in 4 of the new cars sales will have autonomous capabilities, Amazon is delivering millions of products ‘next day’ thanks to AI and warehouse automation, smart farming is enhancing the yield and quality of our crops, but our kids, who will graduate later in the decade or even in the 2030s don’t know anything about it!”
A step beyond STEM
On the occasion of BETT 2020, Inbar launched RobotLAB Inc., the award-winning educational robotics company—is the industry-first AI-LAB for Education. The AI LAB is a turnkey solution built from multiple AI-Stations such as Smart Transportation, Smart Cities, Industry 4.0, Humanoid Robots, Space Exploration, Smart Farming, and other modular learning experiences designed to empower students with hands-on experience in every day’s Artificial Intelligence applications.
For over a decade, RobotLAB is focused on providing comprehensive, interactive, standards-aligned lesson plans that truly engage students, preparing them for their future in the fields that will be dominated by AI in the upcoming years. The various AI-stations in the AI LAB are designed to help students focus on artificial intelligence implementations and master AI technologies such as autonomous driving, delivery drones, automated production lines, warehouse automation, and even human-robot interaction.
As expected from a turnkey solution, the AI LABs are equipped with AI concepts through the use of robotics to provide everything educators and students need. From the furniture, network equipment, backup servers, to curriculum available on the online learning platform, and all the necessary robots needed to set up the ideal AI LAB for schools and universities.
The AI LAB by RobotLAB gives students unique and productive learning experience to ensure that they are ready for their careers, college, and life-in-the-2030s.
