This programme is delivered by Republic Polytechnic and jointly developed by Republic Polytechnic and GovTech’s Data Science & AI Division (DSAID).

For many, learning to code has always been the first and biggest obstacle into the world of computer science. Many people run into the hurdle of writing a simple line of code, much less developing a useful artificial intelligence (AI) programme that can help them predict their customers’ preferences and recommend a suitable product that meets their needs.

With the recent advancements in AI and machine learning, the world is entering into a code-free era where you can create your own programme without writing a single line of code! Using a variety of code-free machines, you can teach machines to learn and apply helpful knowledge to solve everyday problems on their own. These code-free machines often come in guided platforms, offering classic drag-and-drop functionality to fully automated machine learning services suitable for beginners and Machine Learning professionals.

In this one-day hands-on workshop, you will learn to create many excellent programmes ranging from training an object detector to building a topic predictor with no code at all. Plus, there will be opportunities to try out  out DSAID’s code-free AI products such as the Video Analytics System, GovText and Transcribe.

Key Takeaways

At the end of this programme, you will gain a deeper understanding and practical knowledge on the following topics:

  • Provide an overview of Machine Learning
  • Present Machine Learning workflow
  • Solve a regression problem
  • Train an Object Detector
  • Perform topic modelling
  • Transcribe an audio file to text
  • Identify and apply AI at work

Who Should Attend

  • Please refer to the job roles section. 
  • Designed for Public Service Officers with a keen interest in making full use of data to make useful predictions.


You should be IT-savvy and comfortable with performing basic software setup and configuration. Although no prior knowledge in AI is required, you should have a basic understanding and appreciation of AI.
