AI Literacy Course: Understanding Artificial Intelligence

In recent years we have witnessed a lot of developments related to artificial intelligence (AI), such as getting driving directions, music or movie recommendations. AI is being integrated into different aspects of our lives.

The Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC) is offering a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) Literacy programme with three courses, and you are now cordially invited to join the first one, “Understanding Artificial Intelligence” with details below.

We are sorry that this course is currently full. Thank you a lot for your interest and support! We will consider delivering more offering of this course in the future! Stay tuned!

 

Understanding Artificial Intelligence (6 hours)

The LTTC offers an introductory course to promote AI literacy to students who are curious about AI. With more understanding of AI, we will be better prepared to face the current and future AI-infused society.

Some topics to be covered in this course include:

  • What are “artificial intelligence” and “machine learning”?
  • What are common techniques used in “supervised” and “unsupervised learning”?

You will experience activities for understanding some common techniques in the course.
