ENJOY AI is short for " Global Youth Artificial Intelligence Popularization Activity "the first international AI popularization event organized and designed for teenagers.

Organized by the US non-profit organization Federation of Global Youth Artificial Intelligence, the Global Youth Artificial Intelligence Popularization Activity (ENJOY AI) is an artificial intelligence popularization activity for global youth of aged from 5 to 17.


Background

In 2016, AIphaGo defeated Lee Sedol, a Go grandmaster. Then in 2017, AIphaZero overcame the Chinese Go grandmaster, Ke Jie. When it comes to unmanned cars, AI is taking the spotlight and becoming more and more popular in our life with better technologies in image recognition and voice recognition.

The age of AI has arrived, AI technologies will have a profound impact on our study, work, and life like computers and Internet. In the future, you will not be able to survive without coding skills and AI literacy, they are just as important as computer skills and Internet today.

We are living in nature, and nature is our mother, harmony between nature and us is the only rule for our survival. The mother nature helps us liberate our hands from crawling, allowing us to evolve towards unlimited space. Of course, we have never been satisfied with the liberation of hands. Therefore, we produce machine and tools to overcome our physical limits; we try to develop sensing devices to expand our perception; Today, we are trying to crack the secrets of brains, just the right time for AI development to liberate our brains.

Teenagers are the future of the world, and how can they adapt to the development of AI? How can they use AI technology to study and live? How can they solve practical problems in their study and life by using AI technology? On May 3, 2016, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy established the Subcommittee on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence under National Science and Technology Council. On October 12 of the same year, the office released the report“Prepare for the Future of Artificial Intelligence”. The report has outlined the concept, connotation, key technologies and application trend of the educational artificial intelligence (EAI). In 2017, the State Council issued the Development Plan for Next-Generation Artificial Intelligence, which proposed the arrangement of AI related courses in primary and middle schools and implementation of EAI projects for the public. In addition, the plan also encouraged private sectors to participate in the development and promotion of programming teaching software. Meanwhile, the government will support AI competitions and encourage diversified AI projects.

Therefore, “Global Youth Artificial Intelligence Popularization Activity " ENJOY AI is an event echoing the need of the time, technological progress, and social development.
