Abstract: New realities in the digital age determine the comprehensive and rapid penetration of artificial intelligence in all areas of contemporary life. The article motivates the need to introduce the discipline “Artificial Intelligence” in high school and proposes an approach to the practical realization of this training. The possibility for development of a possible curriculum, selection and structuring of appropriate educational content, classification and creation of a package of learning tasks on the separate topics and sections in the curriculum are discussed. Opportunities are offered for the implementation of links with other school subjects, as well as with the everyday life of students. In the last two years, AI has been studied in various forms by more than 200 students from several experimental schools. The interest and motivation of students is constantly growing. Based on the experience gained and the results obtained, we can say that the discipline of AI can be successfully introduced in different degree, in different forms and in different volumes in the school education in Bulgaria.
