“This is a first step toward exploiting common sense,” says Aniruddha Kembhavi, a computer scientist on the project at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2), a nonprofit lab in Seattle, Washington. Angeliki Lazaridou, a computer scientist at DeepMind in London who tried the game, agrees. She says the AI learns how people understand basic concepts by finding the minimum elements required to convey them.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
