‘Keys to success’ took place last February and Craftworkz, one of the speakers, was present. Cronos set up the event in close collaboration with Give a Day, an organization that offers tools to people and businesses, enabling them to work together – and as volunteers – on societal challenges. At the event, students in second-chance education followed presentations and workshops about IT competences, passion and finding one’s way in life.
One of the presentations about IT competences offered an insight on artificial intelligence. The goal of the session was to demonstrate that you don’t really need an academic degree to get started with AI. Anyone with some basic programming skills is fit to integrate AI services into applications.
However, not all of the event’s participants already were aware of what AI is. Some didn’t even have any programming experience. That’s why the presentation started with a general introduction to AI and machine learning. Because before you start integrating technology, you at least have to understand what that technology is capable of.
