Imagine a 6-year-old in a classroom equipped with several cameras that recognize emotions. This new form of Artificial Intelligence is being developed to monitor children for classroom compliance and attendance. To what extent do such systems violate a child’s privacy? How can this child be encouraged to study AI at university when technology has kept track of his/her movements for years? Misuse of Artificial Intelligence can have multiple effects. A poorly designed AI system could incorrectly categorize a student as high risk, replicate underlying biases and undermine human autonomy. While it does not mean AI should not be used in schools. For example, abnormal event detection and recognition is potentially useful to help avoid school bulling. The key is we need to promote the good use, while at the same time, avoid negative impacts. We need strategic policy and technical research on AI to ensure that it is used to protect children and promote their mental and physical development. Children are among the most vulnerable, and it is our duty to make sure they feel safe and supported. That is why UNESCO has embarked on the development of a global legal document on the ethics of AI to protect fundamental rights and build a just, inclusive and better world for everyone. by Yi Zeng Professor and Deputy Director, Research Centre for Brain-inspired Artificial Intelligence, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences / Member of the UNESCO Ad Hoc Expert Group (AHEG) for the draft Recommendation on the ethics of artificial [More]
Roboticist Rodney Brooks introduces a fresh way of thinking of robot advancements. Why not make them more like kids? He discusses four major factors that would bring about this shift in this groundbreaking talk. TEDArchive presents previously unpublished talks from TED conferences. Enjoy this unedited talk by Rodney Brooks. Filmed at TED2014 NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube’s comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We’d love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you’d like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.
Detecting and starting treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at an age of 18 to 24 months can increase a child’s IQ by up to 17 points—in some cases moving them into the “average” child IQ range of 90-110 (or above it)—and improving the child’s quality of life significantly. Researchers at Duke University are using Machine Learning on AWS to create a faster, less expensive, more reliable, and more accessible system to screen children early for ASD.
