A little overview of what I talked about at CUNY CSI Science Day.
During the Science Day at the CUNY College of Staten Island, I presented a gentle introduction to area of computer vision with fun examples and research results to visiting middle and high school students.
It was a very interesting experience given the target audience without any experience (or, at least, presumably) in the subject. I aimed at being user friendly by showing some of the most ground-breaking online projects.
My favorite part of the talk was when we played a little game of "Do you know who this person is?" with fake images from GANs. The reactions were priceless and the interest unmistakably there.
I finished the talk with a bit of a diversion for those who might be interested in trying stuff on their own: Kaggle, FastAI, and Python (which quite a lot of them are already familiar with!) were all mentioned as something to try out.
