The course enables students to recognize the fundamental concepts of contemporary computing and current AI computing. The course will use  multiple disciplines applications, such as commerce, finance, health science, entertainments, and engineering.  The course adapts a top-down approach, from applications and layers of computing technologies, to fundamental concepts of computing, such that the students become savvy on  computing technology.  

Computing and AI technologies has gotten into our everyday’s living, business making and professional activities.  Hence it is beneficial to learn basic know-how, and the concepts behind these technologies.   The course will provide a snapshot on computing  technologies on business, science and engineering disciplines.  

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.
