The video games that they play and the feeds and suggestions on their social media handles are a function of AI, a computer science technology that enables machines to perform tasks that require human intelligence and abilities. In fact, many schools now use AI to grade students and assess their aptitude. Additionally, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has incorporated artificial intelligence in its secondary and senior secondary syllabuses. Today, this technology is so intricately woven in various industries and our daily lives that it has become almost essential for children to learn AI.
