Machine Learning Crash Course Machine learning (ML) is the subfield of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that studies how computer systems can carry out complex processes by learning from data, rather than following pre-programmed rules. This workshop will leverage a story of a child who loves cooking to introduce the most essential ML basic concepts, and how to find a good ML solution. The workshop will also include a short hands-on project to solve a real-life problem using the knowledge just learnt. 2 hours 15 minutes
Introduction to Mechanical Tools Apart from software support, hardware is also necessary to apply AI in daily life. Through this workshop, the speaker not only introduces safety rules of common mechanical tools but also demonstrate their basic usage. Participants would also have a chance to experience using these mechanical tools to assemble hardware toolkits. 1 hour 30 minutes
Experience AI with iCar To provide entry level experience of AI, the Project’s research team developed iCar which equipped with various AI functions and used Blockly as programming language which is very suitable for beginners.
