In our technology-rich world, there is a real need to be for us to be up-to-date on what is available and be effective users for our private lives and at work especially where fake news and cyber security threats abound. This mini-workshop aims to give participants a taste of the technological advances prevalent in Singapore, explain common digital terms, cyber security issues and innovations that we can possibly explore. Participants will get a chance to experience some hands-on digital applications that are used in the full two-day workshop that will enable them to be confident for the digital workplace.
Artificial Intelligence has come a long way from the world of Deep Blue and Chess playing computers. There is a multitude of tools and technologies available such that the most basic programmers can access APIs and get started with using AI to develop solutions. In this tech talk, we will look at some of the available tools and technologies and how to access these tools. Participants will get to ideate around everyday problems and how AI can be used to solve some of these problems.
We are going to wake up at 3am to view the lunar eclipse. It is going to be a dark night and your task will be to make sure that you can light up the way for yourself and your parents using the materials given. Are you game enough?
Telescopes are used to see far. From the largest telescopes in remote locations that are computer-controlled to the smallest handheld ones, telescopes open up the worlds beyond and allow us to see through space and time. Today, you learn to make your own telescope and we will see how far they can see. Use your own telescope during the eclipse while you wait for your turn at the larger ones. It's going to be fun!
