IMMC – QEF Field Study
IMMC-QEF Field Study
IMMC – QEF (International Mathematical Modeling Challenge – Quality Education Fund) Field Study is a part of the program “The Advanced Program for Promoting STEM Education” through Learning and Teaching Mathematical Modeling and its Applications. The program is supported by QEF.
Laboratory for AI-Powered Financial Technologies Limited (AIFT) fully supported this Field Study. Our director, Prof. Houmin Yan, introduced the background and duties of AIFT. He invited the participants to experience what AI can do for society. He said “It looks like we know the AI, we can do everything. It is not any unique fundamentals, mathematics and programming are the fundamentals.” A young researcher also introduced how an AI-supported mobile application uses financial-big data to provide investors with intelligent investment advisory services.
Teachers and students not only visited the AIFT office, but also tried to run the machine learning codes with the programming language, Python, under the guidance of AIFT researchers. Furthermore, they also learned how to install development tools and execute programs, and experience how machine learning works.
