Fifth Grade, Artificial Intelligence Science Projects (4 results)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that enables computers and robots to perform tasks requiring intelligence. The tasks can be as simple as programming a computer to play an easy game like tic-tac-toe or as challenging as having a computer diagnose and treat a sick patient. Sometimes artificial intelligence is used to get machines to do things that humans already do well, like using spoken language to communicate. Other times AI is used to do tasks that are hard for humans, like predicting how new proteins might fold up into 3D structures and how those structures interact with other nearby proteins.

artificial intelligence fields

Machine learning is a subfield of AI where a machine "learns" how to do something without the programming telling it exactly how to deal with every step. In machine learning, a computer is given data from which it builds a model, and that model can repeatedly be trained, tested, and have more data added until it performs well. Companies are using machine learning to build robots that walk, self-driving cars, computers that can compose music, and many other types of technology.

You can try your hand at AI and machine learning with these exciting projects and experiments.

Science Fair Project Idea
AI (artificial intelligence)-generated text is a hot topic for many reasons. Computers can now generate convincing paragraphs or even pages of text that look like they were written by a human. How do you know if a news article you are reading was written by a human or an AI? How does a teacher know if a student's essay was written by an AI? How do you know this text was not written by an AI? In this science project, you will conduct an experiment to see if volunteers can correctly identify… Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Do you think artificial intelligence (AI) is too complex to use? Think again! In this project, you will use AI to teach a web-based tool to classify happy and sad faces, or other objects, poses, or sounds. This experiment requires no coding skills; instead, you will need curiosity, creativity, and a critical eye. Why not give it a try yourself? Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Given the right data, AI can be good at making predictions. In this project, you will create a KNN machine learning model that tries to predict whether a passenger on the Titanic survived based on multiple factors such as age, sex, and fare price. This project requires little to no coding skill; instead, you will need an open mind and curiosity to learn. Ready to give it a try? Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Have the phrases "machine learning" or "neural network" caught your interest, but you are not really sure how to use them in a science project? This project is a great place to start for beginners. You will learn about a very simple type of neural network—a computer program modeled after the human brain—called a perceptron. The perceptron can make a simple yes/no decision based on several inputs. You can "train" your perceptron to improve its decision-making abilities. Try it and… Read more
