Coding Workshop - Smart Assistant Device
The workshop is designed to train students' creative and design thinking skills through learning how to program a smart virtual assistant.
Students will learn to design conversational models that can provide a speech interface for machines to understand human's natural languages. Given a problem they may face in real-life, they would experience first-hand how to design, develop and implement a speech-enabled virtual assistant to solve the problem. Each workshop session includes fundamental understanding of the inner working of AI-enabled speech assistant, and hands-on sessions on making the assistant work to solve a practical problem.
In the last session of the workshop, students will demonstrate the capabilities of the virtual assistants and deploy the assistants for others to use.
Students are tasked to create a virtual assistant to solve a problem they face in daily life. They would design the conversation model and program the logic, then showcase their inventions during the last session.
Students may also do demonstrations at school open days, or help upgrade classrooms to smart classrooms.
