SVVSD students developing IBM-powered technology bring real-life solutions to life

On Apr. 20, St. Vrain Valley School District high school students delivered a virtual class to University of Colorado Boulder seniors at the Leeds School of Business on building and managing IBM Watson-powered chatbots.

The Watson Assistant is an IBM-developed artificial intelligence pop-up window designed to provide website visitors with fast, consistent, and accurate answers.

SVVSD high school students bringing this technology to life are doing so through their participation in a robotics project team at the Innovation Center, which allows students to learn and apply skills related to artificial intelligence and cybersecurity fields, according to Axel Reitzig, coordinator of innovation at SVVSD Innovation Center.
