Meet Zumi, the car that learns as you learn.
Zumi is a tiny buildable self-driving car kit that’s all about making artificial intelligence approachable. Learn about how autonomous cars use sensors and cameras to navigate around the world and learn about the environment using AI. Code her using Blockly or Python. It’s the perfect way to learn not only what AI is, but how it works.
Join the "Next Industrial Revolution"
Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming an essential part of tomorrow’s workforce. Learn not just what AI is, but how it works with Zumi. With Zumi, AI doesn’t have to be scary or confusing. She’s here to make it understandable and approachable.
Teach her about the world
