A Sandbox for Teaching and Learning in CI for Pre-University and Undergraduate Students

The Workshop and Competition at FUZZ-IEEE 2023: A Sandbox for Teaching and Learning in CI for Pre-University and Undergraduate Students will take place on August 13, 2023.

Organizers: Chang-Shing Lee, Gui N. DeSouza, Alexander Dockhorn, Yusuke Nojima, Marek Reformat, Li-Wei Ko, Chun-Rong Huang

Computational Intelligence (CI), which includes fuzzy logic (FL), neural network (NN), and evolutionary computation (EC), is an imperative branch of artificial intelligence (AI). As a core technology of AI, it plays a vital role in developing intelligent systems, such as games and game engines, neural-based systems including a variety of deep network models, evolutionary-based optimization methods, and advanced cognitive techniques. The idea is to create a young student workshop with an associated competition during FUZZ-IEEE 2023 inspired by the F.I.R.S.T. robotics competition. Before or during the first hours of the event, students will receive learning materials and guidance from tutors to learn about a CI-related topic. Later students will be enabled to test learned materials in a simple real-world application. Namely, programming robots to solve various tasks.

Activity Goals:
1. Learn more about machine learning and how it shapes our world.
2. Teach a robot to recognize objects and make recommendations to plan your next journey.
3. Engage in a fun competition that tests the skills you have learned during the workshop.

Registration Information:
1. Open to all middle/high school and undergraduate students, no prerequisites required.
2. 25$ registration fee per participant covering the costs of the workshop (excluding traveling and lodging).
3. Registration must be received before May 31 2023, 23:59 (GMT).

Activity Pattern:
1. A three-hour Workshop.
2. A three-hour Practice Session.
3. A Competition.
