Machine learning (also known as ML) is one of the building blocks of AI, or artificial intelligence. AI is based on the idea that computers can learn on their own, with your help.

Machine Learning for Kids will introduce you to machine learning, painlessly. With this book and its free, Scratch-based companion website, you'll see how easy it is to add machine learning to your own projects. You don't even need to know how to code!

Step by easy step, you'll discover how machine learning systems can be taught to recognize text, images, numbers, and sounds, and how to train your models to improve them.

You'll turn your models into 13 fun computer games and apps, including:
- A Rock, Paper, Scissors game that recognizes your hand shapes
- A computer character that reacts to insults and compliments
- An interactive virtual assistant (like Siri or Alexa)
- A movie recommendation app
