Why Robotics & AI Lab?

The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) announced the introduction of Robotics and AI as a subject for classes 9 and 10, effective from the academic year 2023-24. The subject code is 66. As part of this initiative, it will be necessary for schools to upgrade their existing computer laboratories to Robotics and AI Labs in order to facilitate the introduction of these subjects. This development will better equip the students with the necessary skills to excel in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and we look forward to working closely with all schools to implement this innovative program

Hence Need for AI: Probabilistic, real-life problems; The AI Discretion (AI is not needed for solving deterministic problems) for example – the difference in description of temperatures by a machine and a human. A machine would make a discrete distinction between cool and hot at a given temperature for instance if 35°C is hot, then any temperature 34.9° C and below would be cool. Humans would, however, describe the temperature in a range of ‘cool, pleasant, warm, hot’ and so on based on their subjective experience of the temperature.
