Description:

In this workshop, we will harness the power of AI chatbots, such as ChatGPT, Bard, and Co-pilot, to aid in the process of learning to code, utilizing Python as a teaching tool for skills transferable to other programming languages. We will explore how AI chatbots can serve as invaluable resources for understanding, crafting, and refining code, and even facilitating transitions between coding languages. Through participation in this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the capabilities of AI chatbots such as ChatGPT, Bard, and Co-pilot in comprehending and interpreting code structures, logic, and syntax.
  • Learn techniques for utilizing AI chatbots to efficiently convert code from one programming language to another, with a focus on transitioning from MATLAB to Python.
  • Gain experience using AI chatbots as a programmer's assistant, including accessing real-time guidance, suggestions, and insights to enhance code quality and efficiency.
  • Explore the advantages of Python's open-source nature and its impact on accessibility, collaboration, and community-driven development, particularly in contrast to proprietary languages.
  • Gain hands-on experience in leveraging AI chatbots to streamline the coding process, troubleshoot errors, and tackle complex challenges with confidence
