Research on AI for Education

WorldCre 2024 in Milan: Silvia Larghi on her experience with Edu4AI.

Silvia Larghi is a PhD student at the Robotics Laboratory for Cognitive and Social Sciences  (RobotiCSS Lab) at the “Bicocca” University of Milan. She has a background in computer science and engineering and has taught technology at school, coordinating a digital innovation team. Interaction between humans and robots and between children and robots, as well as artificial intelligence in education are among her research interests. She has also participated in the European Project Edu4AI and collaborated on the development of the course for the FMD Academy [see news: Autonomous Driving].

Today, Silvia will be speaking at the 7th World Conference on Research in Education (WorldCre, Milan, February 23-25) to present the results of Project Edu4AIand the kits for teachers who wish to introduce artificial intelligence, even in schools in programmes not related to technology and science.

In particular, together with Ilaria Gaudiello and Annaleda Mazzucato, Silvia developed an interdisciplinary artificial intelligence project for a Self-driving Vehicle that Recognizes Road Signs, contained in the Edu4AI manual.

European Project Edu4AI – “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Foster 21st Century Skills in Secondary Education,” implemented as part of the European Erasmus+ Programme (Strategic Partnerships), is to develop good practices at the national and European level for AI education in schools, to guide young people in the conscious and responsible use of data and technologies, through experimental, experiential, and collaborative activities. The project, which lasted 25 months, ended in 2022 (see news: Artificial Intelligence at School).
