JAC faculty members from Computer Science awarded a PIA 2022 project


JAC faculty members, from Computer Science, Meghrig Terzian, Mauricio Andres Buschinelli , Sandra Bultena, and Helen Katalifos who have been awarded, in partnership with Ann-Louise Davidson, Concordia, a PIA 2022 grant with a value of $60,000 for their project entitled “A Practical Introduction to AI Through Three Educational Kits”.

The summary of their application states the following:

“The growth of AI is creating jobs and causing shifts in labor market. To help students meet market demands in terms of skills expectations, technology programs at CEGEPs must urgently integrate AI in their curriculum.

In this project, we are proposing to develop three educational kits that introduce AI to students. The kits will include teacher and student guides, solution manuals, will assume no prior knowledge of AI, and only require basic literacy in programming.

Through the kit activities, students will gain experience that enables them to recognize the social impact and ethical issues associated with AI and facilitates their transition to the industry or higher education.”

Congratulations to the team!
