AI has many potential applications in social innovation; for example, chatbots to provide information about public services; or to report incidents. This project aims at building up solid evidence base on existing systems, innovations, and experiments. Upon this base, students can develop appropriate systems for experimentation and, potentially, rolling out. This may involve developing systems to for implementation in our campus.
Perform literature reviews on AI and social innovation
Explore examples from HK, GBA and around the world
Examine legislative framework
(If applicable, begin developing AI systems)
Better understand the landscape of AI and social innovation (in empirical, technical, theoretical and ethical terms)
Develop their skills in systematically searching and reviewing the literature
Ultimately, develop their technical capacity in AI and aspects of programming (where appropriate).
