Learn how to use AI to actively participate in the digital society

Smaile Project

SMAILE (Simple Methods for Artificial Intelligence Learning and Education) is a research project led by the Politecnico di Torino (The technical University of Turin), in collaboration with the University of Turin and the Royal Holloway University of London and several local partners including Pop AI.
The primary target of the project is Generation Z, children born between 1997 and 2010. The project is divided into three sub-projects: GAMES 4 AI, EMP AI and SMAILE APP.

Games 4 AI

GAMES4AI uses Game Theory and Gamification techniques to develop a gamified survey (Survey Game) that through an interactive path of 10 questions allows users to get to know some of the fundamental topics of AI and discover their own profile.


SMaILE App is a mobile application that allows students to learn about artificial intelligence by playing and building a city of which they are mayors. The aim is to make the city as sustainable as possible by building parks, schools, hospitals and other facilities in a rational way, managing traffic and so on.


EmpAI has developed an educational platform, with playful training activities, to stimulate ‘innate’ cognitive skills in children, that can facilitate them understand Artificial Intelligence systems.
