Participatory AI with children and robots
Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving to mimic human-like cognition, emotions, conversations, and decision-making. Yet, how AI affects children is not well studied. The PAIZ project (pronounced as pies, where Z refers to the younger GenerationZ, ages 9-12 years) addresses this gap, through hands-on workshop with children. As a part of the PAIZ project, workshops with the Nao v6 robot are planned with schoolchildren in New Delhi in Nov and with children in Oulu in Spring 2023.
