Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...

Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
