Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the dominant applications of AI and machine learning, commonly used for tasks that include text classification, translation, summarizing, answering questions, amongst others. NLP has gained special prominence recently with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, a chatbot capable.
This course is taught by our seasoned NUS faculty – Dr Edmund Low from NUS College, who has conducted more than 10 youth programmes since 2020. In the recent Winter programme, he received a teaching effectiveness rating of 4.71 out 5, one of the highest rated instructors.
The programme does not only focus on the technical side – how to build and train an AI model, but also touches on the impact of AI on our society.
Through this programme, we hope to inspire our youth to take up STEM related subjects, especially Computing and AI in higher education, and rethink how AI could potentially benefit their future career choices and personal development.
