Early this month, I was invited to participate to the STEM even in a middle school in Ohio and I shared my adventure with a post on LinkedIn.
This is my second year in row participating at this event and I love the opportunity to being able to talk to young kids about SAP, my job, and share some interesting technologies.
Last year, we presented Cozmo robot introducing the concepts of IoT and automation with the intent to simplify daily operations.
The kids loved the experience and they were very challenging. I remember one of them, about 12 years old, that asked me to show the code under the hood and once he show the code he said “OK, so you use Python”. That is impressing, he will have a great happy future being a technologist. I should have asked his resume for SAP early talent 🙂
Fast-forward one year, we tried to find a new technology that could be relevant and engaging with kids. In these days, I’m very passionate of SAP Conversational AI and Robotic Process Automation, for this reason I tried to find a way to use this knowledge to show them some of the application for AI.
One big note here, I can’t show them a chatbot creating an invoice or a purchase order in S/4, customers will appreciate but kids probably will look at me like
For this reason, I tried to find a way to show our technology in a context more close to their reality. What is the most popular topic for them?
I published a video on YouTube for sharing my experience and showing the flexibility that SAP technology has in these day and how this could be also compelling for middle school kids.
