Introduction

As artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly shapes our society, developing foundational AI literacy has become essential for the general public. Thanks to generous support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation (LKSF) donation and UGC Research Matching Grant Scheme, the AIDCEC is helping to meet this need by providing free AI education to Hong Kong residents.

Through AI Literacy Programme and Applied AI Programmes, we aim to equip participants with AI concepts, ethical considerations, and awareness that will allow them to actively contribute to our AI-driven future. The programs are carefully designed to impart core knowledge about AI in an accessible way for broad audiences. We ensure that all necessary learning and teaching materials are available so participants can build a strong AI foundation.

Ultimately, our goal is to empower Hong Kong citizens to understand, thoughtfully engage with, and help shape the role of AI in our evolving society. By providing these Programmes at no cost, we hope to make AI education inclusive and far-reaching. With proper public understanding, we can work together to craft an AI future that benefits all.
