On Monday 18th December, 65 pupils from our Business and Digital Education classes attend a “Christmas with RGU” event at The School of Computing, Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. The session showed the pupils how easily we can be hacked, discussed the question “Why computers are not smart?” and demonstrated the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Feedback from the pupils has been really positive and definitely sparked interesting in computing and AI. Our pupils were particularly interested in “Pepper” RGU’s AI bot. It goes without saying the sweets were a highlight too!
We are very proud of the way our pupils conducted themselves and they were a real credit to Alford Academy.
We can’t wait until next year’s event!
