Every year, the Royal Institute hosts a series of three lectures over the Christmas period. Initiated by Michael Faraday, the idea behind these talks is to present science to children in an exciting way. Past series have covered topics such as forensic science, planet earth, and the hidden power of maths. This year, it was the turn of AI, with the lectures given by Professor Mike Wooldridge.

With the help of other experts in the field, Mike used hands-on demonstrations, involving members of the audience, to help explain different concepts core to machine learning and artificial intelligence. In the first lecture, for example, a simple classification neural network was represented by liquid filling containers to activate a “neuron”. In the second lecture, there was even an appearance from a dog to help explain reinforcement learning.
