(Reporter Ren Min) Tsinghua University recently announced that the textbook "Artificial Intelligence (High School Edition)" specially created for high school students will be officially published in September this year. The Turing Award winner and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yao Qizhi, led the editorial team of Tsinghua Yao class and Zhi class teachers to compose teaching materials, including eight basic core modules of artificial intelligence such as search, machine learning, and neural networks. Provide help for high school students to study.
According to China's "New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan", artificial intelligence-related courses are set up at the elementary and middle school stage. In 2018, the Ministry of Education proposed in the General Senior High School Information Technology Curriculum Standards that artificial intelligence should be added to the information technology curriculum as a curriculum module.
Tsinghua University's Institute of Interdisciplinary Information, under the leadership of Academician Yao Zhizhi, winner of the Turing Award and Dean, based on the computer science experimental class (Yao class) over the years of talent training and education, he wrote an "Artificial Intelligence (High School) Edition) "teaching materials. The editors of this book are all from the teaching team of Computer Science Experimental Class (Yao Class) and Artificial Intelligence Class (Smart Class) of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Information of Tsinghua University. They are all cutting-edge experts in the field of artificial intelligence.
The book chapters include basics of mathematics and programming, search, machine learning, linear regression, decision trees, neural networks, computer vision, natural language processing, and reinforcement learning. Each chapter is equipped with exercises and programming experiments, allowing high school students to deepen their understanding of principles and content in practice.
