The AI for Good Challenge is an annual competition organised by Microsoft in which students learn the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence. Equipped with this learning, they then work in teams on a design-thinking challenge to dream up a creative way that AI could be used to make a difference in the world. The challenge is about understanding AI and innovating concepts for how this technology could be used.

This year there was quite a lot of interest in the challenge and eight teams were formed, each with three students. Regular meetings were held in which the students worked through four modules. These introduced the concept of artificial intelligence, gave examples of how this has been used to help our society but also explained some of the ethical issues involved. The modules also explained how to present a submission to enter the competition.

All eight teams engaged well with this and there were some excellent ideas presented. Over 600 teams entered the competition from schools around Australia. We are delighted that two of our teams have been selected as finalists for the State level Championship to be held on 18 September. These two teams are:

Team Accessiplay:  Sara Alaei, Maggie Chi and Aidan Luchs

Special congratulations go to these two teams, but also a well done to all the teams involved for presenting great ideas which could improve the lives of people. 'The world needs more changemakers like you!'
