To explicit and engage students at WGS, Social -Scienceexhibition was held on September 15th 2018-19 on the topic “The relation ofArtificial intelligence to natural resources”. It was a great platform foryoung budding minds of grade VII to share their projects on Artificialintelligence.
When you think of artificial intelligence, the first image that likely comes to mind is one of sentient robots that walk,talk, and emote like humans. But there’s a different kind of AI that’s becoming prevalent in nearly all of the sciences.
AI for Earth was categorized in four broadthematic areas: A slew of projects have been popping up in this relatively newfield. Under the theme AI to air and water students of class VII AIR madeworking models of river valley project, rain water harvesting, windmill thatexplicated” The true method of knowledge is experimentation.” Studentsemphasized on how artificial intelligence help us in water purity monitoring ,water use optimization, weather forecasting ,monitoring air purity and how droneshelp in predicting flooding and help in rescue operation. Under the theme AI toland, metal and minerals VII EARTH students specifically focused on the topicland use in India and agriculture. The demonstrations included different soilsof India, Productivity of Rabi and Kharif crops, Condition of farmers,agricultural necessities, Use of Artificial Intelligence for improvement inagricultural productions and for benefits of farmers. Metallurgy demonstrations included emergence of process of metallurgy, invention of new metals using artificial intelligence to deal with challenges in modern world. The Minerals and Mining demonstrations were on distribution of Metallic, non- metallic and energy minerals available in India. The students discussed about new opportunities in the field of mining using artificial intelligence. The demonstration of smart city developed with implementations of AI and underground mines for better utilization of land with increasing demands enthralled everyone.
Under the theme AI to human resources studentsof VII FIRE focused on small part of the big picture of how computationalsustainability can change and is changing our ability to make human life onEarth more sustainable. The projects demonstrated were new satellite missioncalled PACE (for “Pre-Aerosol Clouds and ocean Ecosystem”) tounderstand phytoplankton in ocean, Combining satellite imagery and machinelearning to predict poverty, conservation of birds and animals through crypticcameras, acoustic sensors, satellite imagery and citizen science apps. Earthcube in understanding geo-climatic conditions of earth, Al for tomorrowsfirefighters with AUDREY, proximity sensors for energy conservation, roboticsurgery. The working model of hydraulic arm enthralled parents and visitors.
Under the theme AI to technological resourcesstudents of VII SKY performed 6 hats activity and jigsaw puzzle on the concept.The students showcased the different stages starting from Stone Age toNeolithic age to urban revolution in Ancient Greece and Rome to renaissance andfinally leading to the development of AI. The different working models werecatapult, raft, Self driven car, and doodling model. The students showcasedtheir skills in making charts, construction and demonstration of models.
The exhibition highlighted “Everything we love about civilization is a product of intelligence, so amplifying our human intelligence with artificial intelligence has the potential of helping civilization flourish like never before – as long as we manage to keep the technology beneficial.“
