The CodeMeOut Team, March 25, 2023

Being well informed about AI can be beneficial in several ways. 

Understanding the technology: AI is a rapidly evolving field, and staying informed about the latest advancements can help you understand the technology better. This can help you to better appreciate its potential applications and limitations. 

Career opportunities: AI is a field that is in high demand, and having knowledge and skills related to AI can open up new career opportunities. Many companies are actively seeking professionals with expertise in AI, so being well-informed in this area can help you advance your career. 

Keeping up with the trends: AI is changing the way we live and work, and being well-informed about the latest trends can help you stay ahead of the curve. This can help you make better decisions about the technologies you use and the career paths you pursue. 

Understanding ethical considerations: AI has the potential to impact society in significant ways, and understanding the ethical considerations surrounding the technology is important. Being well-informed about AI can help you engage in meaningful discussions about its implications and contribute to shaping the future of the technology.

We hope that the course will make many students think and will influence them. We encourage students who complete the course to let their imaginations run wild and put together solutions in which AI plays a key role in their everyday lives and help them.

For those who participate, we will provide a platform where students can upload their ideas and compete against each other. The owners of the best 6 best ideas will be invited to an idea competition.

In order to promote transversal and digital skills needed for AI we will launch 4 real-life challenges on the platform and student teams mentored by their teachers can publish their one-pager (summary of the innovative solution) for the problems. The 6 best ideas will be invited to a short-term mobility program which would be a 3-day idea challenge supported by mentors from the consortium’s expert network and teachers. The students will co-create with the experts and teachers so we can leverage the innovative thinking of the students and the teachers can implement the innovative teaching methods in their operations. 

That was the 4th activity that we will implement within the framework of the project. We consider it particularly important to motivate the students and reward their hard work, because this competition is a very important part of the project.
