Case A2: A First Glance at AI

  • Elementary
Target Level
  • P5 – P6

To provide students a basic understanding of AI elements by introducing AI history and basic process of machine learning. Students will learn how to upload images by using block-based programming language, how computers identify image features, and how to train and test AI models.

This course will equip students with basic knowledge of AI and an overview of its substantial applications in our daily lives. They will learn about the internal processes for an AI model – from inputting data to testing models – and how machines recognize fruits like apples, bananas, and oranges.

  • Desktop / Laptop / Tablet with Internet Connection
  • Common programming languages like Scratch / Blocky
Cloud Services
  • Optional
