Imagine a machine that dispenses candy when the user displays the requested image in front of the trained image model. It can be easily labeled as a real-life experiment of operant conditioning powered by Artificial Intelligence. NeuralCandy, an Android Things project, combines image classifier and sugar highs in one delicious blend. The application asks for a random image to be placed in front of the camera module and if it matches the request, the motor of the candy dispenser is then activated to release the reward. Thus, a specimen of the advantages of AI in education, NeuralCandy is a very useful tool that can be used to enhance children’s ability of cognitive image processing. (If this doesn’t convince you, then there are always candies you can look forward to!). …

In the 1400s, not more than 20% of the world’s population could read. We again stand in a similar position. However, 20% has decreased to 0.25%, and we are instead talking about programming, something which is soon going to be as fundamental. We live in an era where heaps of technology surround us from AR/VR to IoT and the future certainly lies amidst them. With that, it becomes crucial to learn programming for children as it sits at the heart of this technological advancement. If they learn how to code from a young age itself, it will gear them up to deal with the technology around them in a well-informed manner. …
