About this event

To most of us, artificial intelligence (AI) is a mysterious black box. But in reality, it surrounds us in so many aspects of daily life, from social media feeds, online chatbots to self-driving cars. More and more companies are adopting big data, taking advantage of machine learning and cloud computing to advance their business and operation. Sooner or later, our students will enter a workforce powered by AI, leading to the creation of new jobs and disciplines.

So how could we get young people motivated to learn AI? As an educator, are you looking for inspiration and advice to integrate AI in your class planning and the course curriculum? Theme “Inspiring Young People to Make a Better Tomorrow with AI”, the webinar on 26 May will invite experienced speakers in AI education to share successful stories with you.

The webinar is a part of the Jockey Club AI Community Innovation Programme, a programme funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and organised by MakerBay Foundation. It is a hands-on education programme, bringing together participants from schools, communities, and the industry to learn, play and solve real-world problems with artificial intelligence (AI).
