Part 1 - The intuition of AI

In this workshop, we explore the derivative of what empower some of the most common AI solutions. Participants will have a hands-on basic artificial neural network with Weka as part of their classification task.

Part 2 - Introduction to Text mining works

Participants will be able to appreciate some ideas of NLP implementations, in particular text mining where it could be prevalent in either speech or cybersecurity at a high-level context.

Part 3 - Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence

Handwriting is a ubiquitous form of art which is unique to an individual. At a high-level, participants will appreciate the mechanism behind some of the more intriguing form of art and how one capitalises on handwriting to predict what digit he is writing.
