22 / 29 Apr 2022 (Fri) Introduction to Linux Operating System with Raspberry Pi Workshop (Re-run) This workshop is designed for teachers who have never used Linux before. With the software support from Tensorflow, PyTorch and Nvidia, Linux is considered as the “go-to” operating system for machine learning. Because of this, people usually use this free-to-use Linux System to build open-source AI projects. This beginner-level workshop will introduce basic command-line interface of Debian-based Linux with a Raspberry Pi. We will cover topics like installing packages, creating, copying, and removing files. We will also install PyTorch on the Pi to perform a simple image classification experiment. Register
20 /27 May 2022 (Fri) AI with Python Workshop (Re-run) Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, which is also an indispensable tool for AI and Machine Learning nowadays. Majority of the popular AI and machine learning frameworks are available in Python. With the help of these frameworks, developing AI applications could be much easier than in the past. In this workshop, teachers with little or no programming experience can gain knowledge of basic Python and experience by developing an AI application using Python. Register

Introduction to Linux Operating System with Raspberry Pi With the software support from Tensorflow, PyTorch and Nvidia, Linux is considered as the “go-to” operating system for machine learning. Open-source AI projects also tend to be built on the Linux system because of ​this, and it is free. This beginner-level workshop will walk you through the primary command-line interface of Debian-based Linux with a Raspberry Pi. We will cover topics like installing packages, creating, copying, ​and removing files. We will also install PyTorch on the Pi, which turns it into an AI-ready device.​ ​ Review
7 May 2021(Fri) CocoRobo Next-Gen AIoT Teacher Training Session (on-site) This time, our training workshops will introduce another common AI toolkit, Next-Gen AIoT, to introduce the application of AI as well as basic programming of Python. Participating School Teachers will gain hands-on experience of AI by using a programme design tool called CocoBlockly X together with the use of extension modules to develop several small-scale AI projects. The workshops will be conducted in four sessions, one for introductory and other three specially for the Project’s exclusive AI experiments. Review
7 May 2021(Fri) E-platform Introduction Session Led by CUHK Knowledge and Education Exchange Platform (KEEP) team, the introduction session will ​provide an overview of the E-Platform by introducing various system modules of software toolkits for AI ​teaching and learning.
