Indigenous cooking with a dash of artificial intelligence

English session - Beginner

In this session you will learn how Neural networks are used to make predictions by predicting what type of pie will be created with different ingredients. But watch out! whenever you train data models you have to watch out for bias, and we'll look at Indigenous cooking practices from Chef David Wolfman to see if our Neural Network is inclusive! This workshop uses a drag and drop web interface, no coding experience required.
