Case A5: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

  • Medium – Advanced
Target Level
  • P4 – P6

To discover practical theories, applications and programming opportunities to further students’ understanding of the subject matter. Then, train and test the machine learning models, and observe how these models function. Also, it helps to develop students’ sampling and labelling skills through hands-on training activities. Finally understand the core concepts and how to apply AI technology to different situations.

The school will organise a series of basic AI workshops to students which provide concrete, contextualised lessons that seamlessly integrate grade-level mathematics, general studies and programming activities for students. The workshops will strengthen students’ understanding of the fundamentals of AI and machine-learning. They can also try to program, apply and experience the technology in various applications such as semantic analysis, color, face, object, shape recognitions and so on.
