Dr. Andy Chun, Associate Professor of Department of Computer Science at CityU explored the journey of AI research & development, and explained modern AI in layman terms, including technologies such as deep-learning, speech recognition/generation, chatbots, robots, etc. He also shared some of his award-winning AI examples created for big corporations like the MTR Corporation and looked at what the future might hold for AI & humanity.
