Activity TitleHands-on Workshop on Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Form of ActivityWorkshop
Medium of InstructionCantonese
Description and RundownThe 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 as well as learning the benefits and pitfalls of AI are critical to our future lives.

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 (1) identify pictures of cars and cups, and (2) recognize business and sports news headlines. Participants can take part in every process of AI learning, including labeling samples, training the AI, testing the training results, and so on.
