I am going a webinar/presentation titled "5 Steps to Play With and Learn AI" On March 23, 2021. The live webinar is free (you can register here) and will be available soon afterward on-demand with other of my webinars.
This is reference information for that presentation.
The 5 steps to learning:
- Awareness / Decision / Goal
- Play / Experience / Experiment
The fact that you are here shows that you are aware. Now, you need to decide if you want to pursue it. Then, set a goal.

Python is considered by many to be the most popular language for AI.
For beginners (and children too), you can learn a bit about Python by using Turtle graphics. This was introduced to me by our local library which sponsored an Hour of Code and provided some of the following links:
