What is AI Literacy?

Referring to HKU Policy on Use of Generative Artificial Intelligence for Teaching and Learning, AI literacy comprises the ability to comprehend, use, interact with, and make informed decisions regarding AI technology in daily life. It involves understanding the basic principles of AI, recognizing its applications, and being aware of ethical, social, and privacy implications while responsibly engaging with AI systems.

This guide with curated learning resources aims to help HKU students and staff 1) deepen their understanding of AI, 2) learn about some Generative AI (GenAI) tools or AI-empowered tools that can enhance their learning and research experience, and 3) make individual decisions on selecting appropriate AI tools based on their own learning and research needs.
