Artificial Intelligence in Anti-epidemic work

To enrich students' understanding of possible use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in anti-epidemic work. Through courses or workshops, encourage students to create innovative solutions for addressing healthcare issues or fighting the epidemic.

Students will learn the principle and daily application of AI through interactive lectures. After learning AI knowledge and how to use the related tools, they will build their own prototypes and showcase related to healthcare or anti-epidemic work.
