As we introduced in a previous article on this blog, the Korea MLSA AI & Cloud Learning Hands-on Camp, an event where Korean Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors (MLSA) and Microsoft MVPs teach students how to utilize Microsoft AI and cloud technologies, was held in July 2023. Following that, the second event (MLSA와 함께하는 대학생 AI & Cloud 러닝 핸즈온 캠프) took place in November 2023, where six MLSAs were involved in organizing the event, and hands-on AI sessions were conducted for 60 student participants.

At the beginning of this event, Soyoung Lee, the Community Program Manager in Korea, introduced the Azure OpenAI Service and Microsoft's startup support initiative, Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub. Demonstrations were conducted with MVPs and MLSAs who develop their own services or apps through these services. Subsequently, Jaeseok Lee, a Business Applications MVP, held a session about immediately applicable AI in business.


After that, MLSAs led three divided sections, where participants could join the section they were most interested in and deepen their understanding through sessions and hands-on activities. The three themes of these sections are introduced below.


  • Aaron Roh introduced how to create projects that can be operated in a serverless environment using Azure Functions and the GitHub API. Additionally, he covered how to implement automated deployment of Azure Functions via GitHub Actions.
  • Minjin Park introduced methods for generating images using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) based Bing Image Creator and Stable Diffusion. She also presented how to create and assess the reliability of image diagnostic models using Azure AI Custom Vision.
  • Minseok Song, who studies Industrial Engineering, explained Azure Cognitive Search and Azure OpenAI using both Semantic Kernel and LangChain, based on his contributed technical blog, Teach ChatGPT to Answer Questions Based on PDF content Using Azure AI Search and Azure OpenAI.


Students who learned about the latest AI and cloud technologies in this 8-hour event will continue to learn and enhance their skills in technologies that interest them, sparked by this opportunity. Some might participate in the MLSA program and become educators themselves, while others might join the Microsoft for Startups program and become future entrepreneurs who launch better services.


Students who wish to participate in an opportunity to organize, learn, and grow together are encouraged to search for and attend events of interest organized by MLSAs in the future.
