Welcome to the AI Family Challenge

Artificial Intelligence is changing our world.

Together, we decide how.

Find out why Dina and Christina are one of more than 2800 families around the world taking part in the AI Family Challenge.

Did you know that Alexa and Siri use artificial intelligence (AI) to answer your questions? Or, that YouTube and Netflix recommend videos with the help of machine learning? Many technologies that surround us are changing how we work and play using AI.

The AI Family Challenge is a free, hands-on AI education program that brings families, schools, communities, and technology know-it-alls together to give everyone the chance to learn, play and create with AI.

Solve a problem with AI

Through the AI Family Challenge, your understanding of AI will grow along with your confidence. Do you see problems in your community around transportation, health, education, safety, or the environment? As your family completes our program, you will work together to create a solution and a prototype using an AI technology.
