A UNIQUE SOLUTION FOR TEACHING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

The 1956 project for “Artificial Intelligence” was to simulate the functioning of the brain.
What could be more natural then, than explaining AI from what makes it closest to its biological inspiration?

The AlphAI solution
combines 3 important innovations

A robot learning in front your eyes to embody simple or impressive learning.

A graphical interface to open the “AI black box” and manipulate algorithms, including the famous artificial neural networks.

A pedagogy finally to introduce the concepts one by one, through mini-scenarios proposed to the manipulation; concepts that will echo our own human learning!

UNDERSTANDING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
A PRIORITY FOR ALL

L'avenir de l'enseignements Learning Robots AlphAI

THE FUTURE OF OUR ACTIVITIES

AI will profoundly transform all human activities by 2050, in industry, health, services, etc. Giving young people the keys to understanding is a priority, to prepare them for their future jobs, as well as to become informed users of AI on a daily basis.

THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN BEING

Depending on how it is used, AI can be a source of positive energy and better living together, or on the contrary, it can destroy jobs, the environment and humanist values. A technical understanding of AI is a necessity to be able to grasp the ethical, philosophical and political issues associated with it.

THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION

Teaching AI in high school is a new lever for spectacular achievements in scientific education. It will also stimulate new interests, through the comparison with the human brain, for biology… or philosophy and humanities! Finally, it will allow students and teachers to better understand new adaptive pedagogical initiatives based on AI.

OPEN WIDE THE BLACK BOX OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

We all know something about Artificial Intelligence since we are confronted with it daily, but its functioning may seem inaccessible, even magical. Well no, we can open the black box, its main functions are even explicable in everyday language!

Teaching AI begins with learning how to program. It is essential to understand that a computer only executes sequences of instructions that are given to it, and to master the logic of these instructions. Many technical resources exist for this purpose.

Machine Learning changes the paradigm: we no longer write instructions for a program, we train a model with training data! New resources allow you to become familiar with this new concept and to understand the importance of the quantity and quality of data.

But the initial question remains: how does it work? To really demystify Artificial Intelligence, we have to get into the learning algorithms, and thus show how, from instructions, we can go as far as making programs capable of adapting to data!

THE HUMANS BEHIND THE ROBOT

Founder and Scientific Director

Thomas Deneux

Thomas Deneux is a graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure and holds a PhD in Computer Vision. During his post-doctoral research in experimental neurobiology at the Weizmann Institute (Israel), he studied the functional organization of neuronal assemblies in rodents. Today, he is a Research Engineer at CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research) within the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, where he pursues research in neurorobotics, and founded the Learning Robots start-up in May 2020. He is convinced of the many challenges that AI represents for society, and of the ability of young people to self-appropriate both its technical and societal aspects.

Sales Director

Axel Haentjens

Axel Haentjens is a graduate of the Ecole Centrale de Paris, with 25 years of experience in the Orange Group in Strategy, Sales, Marketing and Communications. He launched the “One Cloud” project in the Orange Group in the early 2010s and until 2019 is the Director of Strategic Partnerships in the field of data management, cloud and cyber defense. He brings to Learning Robots his experience in corporate strategy, strategic partnerships, and international business.

LEARNING ROBOTS

Learning Robots’ mission is to demonstrate to all audiences how artificial intelligence and neural networks work: from initiation to manipulation, from elementary school to vocational training and high school programming.

Being inspired by neuroscience, artificial intelligence can also teach us a lot about our own learnings. Through the solutions offered by Learning Robots, the younger generation will become positive and engaged players in the AI revolution.
