Course Aims

This course aims to empower the students by providing an environment for self-initiative and freedom of topic choice, and promote cross-learning.  It is unrealistic and unnecessary to learn everything concerning computing.  

The course is composed of three parts: 

  • Basic computing and AI concepts;  
  • Computing and AI applications on various disciplines, and how these technologies  extend knowledge and solve problems;
  • Case-studies:  

Applications in education, finance and banking, commerce, health, legal, games, social and leisure, and engineering etc.

About four students will form a discussion panel.  They will present their group project summaries of a selected topic.  The students in the audience will serve as adjudicators, and will fire questions for discussion, with the lecturer serving as the modulator.
