  • Group Reqs: None
  • Description: Students are introduced to the concept of classification. By exploring Google’s Teachable Machine tool, students learn about supervised machine learning. Then students are asked to build a cat-dog classifier but are unknowingly given a biased dataset. When the classifier works better on cats than dogs, students have the opportunity to retrain their classifiers with their own new datasets.
