Course Overview

Welcome to the course titled Augmented Intelligence. In this course, we will aim at doing mainly two things:

Pedagogical Approaches

In terms of pedagogical approaches, we can talk about (1) the content delivering methods and (2) the technological tools we will be using for the students to take ownsership of the learning process.

  1. This course will have synchronous sessions with live conferences, synchronous sessions with breakout channels for team work, asynchronous material, synchronous sessions for Q&As and synchronous office hours in order to support students for their practicum (the Covid-19 project).

  2. This course will also rely on our technological platform. this platform is first designed for our research purposes - not for teaching - but we think it is an interesting set of tools for students to experience a hands-on experience on the cutting-edge tools we use in research. For this goal, students will have access to a communication platform - our Open Knowledge Base -, a virtual campus where they will have access to a lot of code we are using in research, and to a computing platform where they will be able to integrate their R code.

This course is also about using the whole Data Science perimeter, notably for their practicum. From Data Wrangling to predictive modelling through data visualization and GIS. You will use structured and unstructured data. To make you realize how large this perimeter of Data Science is, we will run a simulation about Covid-19. You will be automatically registered for the Hacking Health Covid-19 organized by our lab.

In this course we will use R as the core programming language. And through all the sessions we’ll talk about digital transformation.

Educational Objectives

Assessments

Individual assessments

Group assessment - Practicum

All the deliverables are due on Sunday April 19, 2020.

Calendar

The course runs from Friday 2:30 PM, April 10, 2020 to Sunday April 19, 2020. During this period, students will work on our communication platform and will start this period with 3 days of more traditional class interactions (Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday) to help them achieve their practicum. The last 4 sessions are designed

Schedule

[Unfold some info by clicking on the triangle pictogram]

Session 1: Welcome to Augmented Intelligence here

During this first session instructors and students will introduce themselves. Instructors will present the course syllabus, objectives and evaluation criteria.

We will introduce our practicum Hacking Health Covid-19 and the associated resources that will help you realize your final project for this course.

Session 2: What is Augmented Intelligence ? here

An introduction to the powerful Industrial Revolution 4.0 and its main engine: AI. In this course, we will explore AI, the differences between Automated Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence.

install R and Rstudio on your computer, create an account on github and connect to our account in your Rstudio session.

This session can be as long as 205 min instead of 180 min if the R material is very new to you. If it is not that new, then you should go faster.

Session 3: Hacking Health Covid-19: Design Thinking here

During this session, the different groups will present the module they have decided to work on. We will hold a Design Thinking session to orient the groups to the module they have decided to work on. The instructors will present the technical framework to complete the modules.

Session 4: AI and Ethics here

In this session, we will cover an important topic in the digital transformation of businesses: ethics. How do we ensure our customers’ privacy in our company? How do we make sure our employees’ data are dealt with an ethical behvior? How do we make sure we have en ethical process all along when we do experimentations with customers’ data? What are the ethical principles that are arising in the world right now?

Session 5: Hacking Health Covid-19: Version 0.1 here

During this session, the different teams will present a version 0.1 of their module.

Session 6: AI and Public Policy here

In this session, Mrs Catherine Feuillet will explore the opportunities and challenges posed by AI. What are the questions for public policies? How does a government go through its own digital transformation? What is at stake for public policies?

Session 7: Covid-19 Practicum - Technical Documentation and Prototype Sourcing here

This is a peer learning session where each team will work on the final version of the Technical Documentation and the prototype sourcing.

Teams are assumed to work with their team members only, but they may sometimes want to organize peer learning sessions with other teams.

Session 8: Covid-19 Practicum - Prototype Scope here

This is a peer learning session where when each team will work on the final validation of the module feasability.

Teams are assumed to work with their team members only, but they may sometimes want to organize peer learning sessions with other teams.

Session 9: Covid-19 Practicum - Prototype alpha here

This is a peer learning session where when each team will work on the prototype in an alpha version, a slightly improved version of what they presented in class.

Teams are assumed to work with their team members only, but they may sometimes want to organize peer learning sessions with other teams.

Session 10: Covid-19 - Prototype beta here

This is a peer learning session where when each team will work on the prototype in a beta version..

Teams are assumed to work with their team members only, but they may sometimes want to organize peer learning sessions with other teams.

Community Values & Honor Code

Community Values

It Is Essential to Foster a Supportive Online Learning Environment.

We believe it is essential for all participants to foster a supportive online learning environment where individuals can have open discussion, reflect on their thinking, and learn from each other.

Honor Code

A Commitment of Honor, Honesty, and Stewardship.

The Honor Code supplements the statement of Community Values and reflects the commitment participants make as members of the learning community to participate in, foster, and uphold the Learning Model.
