Can an AI recognise what you are drawing

This lesson provides an opportunity to incorporate representation of data using a relevant context being studied in the classroom. Students represent an object using a line drawing, focusing on the features of the object that enable it to be easily recognised. Students experiment with creating representations using an AI drawing tool that guesses what is being drawn.
