Artificial Intelligence Learning Requirements

Artificial Intelligence Learning Requirements

The consortium of The Future is in Applied Artificial Intelligence Project designed the first competency-based applied artificial intelligence curriculum at the high-education institution level. The development was based on advanced system research of existing artificial intelligence-related resources and surveying target groups of teachers, information technologies students, and employers which should enhance the performance of implementing artificial intelligence education. A review of applied artificial intelligence was prepared in the form of keyword clustering. The initial data was collected with the help of surveying, gathering job offers, existing artificial intelligence training courses, scientific projects, and real cases. Synthetic analysis of the textual information from the studies was using the word clouds technique. Tensor-based approach was used for the presentation of the competence-based course. The specific numerical requirements for the course in the form of priorities follow from the solution of decision-making problems using the analytic hierarchy process technique. Based on the comprehensive study of the surveys, educational experience, scientific projects, and business requirements, a meta-analysis of the recent references, we specified the criteria for a training course in the form of a tensor-based representation of competencies in relation to the content and educational modules.

Competence framework

Competence framework

This result outlines a learning initiative focused on developing a Competence framework within the field of AAI. The approach involves analyzing and incorporating various competency standards, such as ACM and IEEE. The content of the framework aims to encompass knowledge areas, specifying scope, competencies, and sub-domains. Sub-domains are further detailed through the inclusion of corresponding knowledge, skills, and dispositions. This comprehensive approach seeks to establish a robust foundation for competence development in the rapidly evolving field of AAI.

Publication: Electrochemical Biosensor Design Through Data-Driven Modeling Incorporating Meta-Analysis and Big Data Workflow

The objective of the work is to offer workflow enabling us to execute both empirical and analytical studies of enzyme kinetics. For this purpose, on the one hand, we are based on a series of experimental research involving the traditional methods and techniques used when studying biochemical reactions and designing electrochemical biosensors: conductance research, spectroscopy, and electromagnetic field study.

Publication: The Role of Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things In Development of Smart Cities for Industry 4.0

The pace of urbanisation is currently increasing. Modern cities are striving to become more technologically advanced and “smarter”, combining the concept of sustainable development with an improved quality of life. At the same time, digital transformation is taking place, and a variety of flexible tools will help meet the growing challenges of urbanisation over the next
few decades. One of the tools of digital transformation is cyber-physical systems.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are a set of infrastructure and production systems that
combine computing (cyber) technologies integrated into the physical environment with
human interaction.

FAAI in Paris

On 15.06.2023, the project ‘The Future Is In Applied Artificial Intelligence’ (FAAI:2022-1-PL01-KA220-HED-000088359) was presented during a meeting with the staff of the EFREI Research Lab department at Efrei Paris-Panthèon Assas University. The meeting included presentations from experts in the field of neural networks and artificial intelligence from various academic and professional backgrounds. A member of the FAAI team presented the project’s ideas and its current status. The application of AI was discussed during the presentation, which attracted the attention of the meeting participants. They expressed satisfaction with the meeting and showed interest in the project and participating in its next edition.

While the use of digitalization tools and strategies in teaching and learning methods brings many benefits, progress is uneven and there is a need to improve practices in online methods, identify the “success and quality characteristics” of pedagogical practices, and help improve and inform the move towards a new paradigm educational.

In recent years, the university authorities, in particular the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, have been paying attention to the development and implementation of innovative educational technologies. As a result, VR and IoT computer rooms equipped with modern equipment were created.

On June 7-9, in Bled (Slovenia), the International Training in Digital Pedagogy organized by the European Commission took place. The training was attended by representatives of Erasmus+ National Agencies and coordinators of relevant projects.

The aim of the training “Fostering digital pedagogies through international cooperation” was to share experiences and best practices in the use of digital pedagogy to strengthen international teaching and learning activities regarding student mobility and new mobility formats, COIL, joint programs, etc.

The event lasted two days and included expert panels with discussions on relevant European policies and funding opportunities and best practice presentations, exploring methodologies, added value and relevant challenges. The conference also provided a dedicated space for lab sessions, giving attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas, start thinking, and possibly develop new design ideas together with the help of experts.

Poland was represented by a team of 5 people led by the coordinator of the Team for Partnerships in the Higher Education Office of the FRSE, Ms. Anna Bielecka, who gave a paper on “Funding opportunities under Erasmus+ for digital pedagogies”, which contributed to a serious discussion.

The University of Bielsko Biala was represented by the Head of the Department of Computer Science and Automation, prof. dr hab. Vasyl Martsenyuk, who has been coordinating Erasmus+ educational projects in recent years, including those related to digital pedagogy. Here it is worth mentioning the Erasmus+ 2022-1-PL01-KA220-HED-000088359 project entitled “The Future is in Applied Artificial Intelligence” (FAAI), coordinated by ATH and which aims to connect universities and enterprises in order to: a) fill the current gap in artificial intelligence digital skills; b) build an ecosystem of key partners in AAI; d) promote business opportunities, via AI Job Hub (https://faai.ath.edu.pl), between universities and IT companies; е) support the creation of AI education curricula.

During the laboratory session Vasyl Martsenyuk suggested the title of the pilot project “AI-pedagogy for teachers”. A team of representatives from Slovenia, Portugal, Finland and Poland worked on the preparation of the exercise project application.

Based on discussions, panels and presentations of best practices, participants gained experience in researching problems and the potential of the latest innovations in the field of education development and international cooperation.
