In this 6-min video Katya Vladislavleva from defines artificial intelligence, augmented intelligence and the impact they have on improving competitiveness of the European industry.
The Humane AI project will develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to shape the ongoing Artificial Intelligence revolution. The goal is to design and deploy AI systems that enhance human capabilities and empower both individuals and society as a whole to develop AI that extends rather than replaces human intelligence. The focus is on human-centered AI, with a strong emphasis on ethics, values by design, and appropriate consideration of related legal and social issues. The HumanE AI project will mobilize a research landscape far beyond the direct project funding and create a unique innovation ecosystem that offers substantial return on investment. It will result in significant disruption across its socio-economic impact areas, including Industry 4.0, health & well-being, mobility, education, policy and finance.

This is footage from a workshop I ran for the European Commission (July, 2018, Brussels) on Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, and the future of education. I do believe that there is no doubt that AI will play a powerful role in helping transform and better personalise education, through generative algorithms that can present the right information at the right time for optimal pleasure and learning. However, used inappropriately, this leads to individual learning journeys, and a disconnection with peer learning. In contrast, we need to bear in mind that true human flourishing is all about connection. Happiness and flourishing stems from connection with others (e.g., empathy, compassion, personal close relationships, and working well with others), and connection with our own emotions, values and sense of purpose. Emotional Intelligence has twice the impact on workplace performance as IQ – as it is as a team that we achieve more than we can alone. In short, I would not like to see AI replace teachers, but rather be used as a tool for helping teach the fundamentals, freeing up class time, for more meaningful and enjoyable group-based projects, where children can also learn about, practice and refine the “soft skills” that essential to our humanity, well-being and success.
