Demystifying Machine Learning

We have all encountered machine learning in our daily lives, from speech recognition to fraud detection - but do we really know what it is? This raises a compelling question, how do we build awareness around this topic? The answer lies in education. The solution for us became AI Camp, a two week scheme for university students with the goal of equipping the next generation with skills to leverage machine learning. Discover how we took an intimidating topic and lowered the barrier through AI Camp.
