|Activity Title||Hands-on Workshop on Artificial Intelligence (AI)|
|Form of Activity||Workshop|
|Medium of Instruction||Cantonese|
|Description and Rundown||The popularity of artificial intelligence (AI) has skyrocketed in recent years. AI is the key technology behind predictive analytics (e.g. YouTube and Netflix recommendations), personal assistants (e.g. Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa), autonomous vehicles, and more. Understanding how AI works, learning the benefits and pitfalls of AI, are vital for our future life.
In this workshop, participants will explore what AI is and how it works at a conceptual level. They will also learn the common AI terms such as “training data” and “machine learning”. They are encouraged to consider and study the appropriate application of AI technology to our daily lives.
Participants will gain hands-on experience in training the computer to classify different objects in pictures, e.g., cats and dogs. Participants can take part in every process of AI learning, including labeling samples, training the AI, testing the training results, and so on.
