Navigating the Ethics of Fear: Examining the Impact of AI on Society by De Kai | TEDxSanMigueldeAllende

The biggest fear with AI is fear itself | De Kai | TEDxSanMigueldeAllende
De Kai explores in this talk how AI can turn fear into a threat to humanity and society. He also examines what we should be doing to combat it. De Kai’s research in AI, language and music, creativity and ethics is centered on intercultural communication. For pioneering contributions to machine learning of AIs like Google/Yahoo/Microsoft Translate, he was honored by the Association for Computational Linguistics as one of only seventeen Founding Fellows worldwide and by Debrett’s HK 100 as one of the 100 most influential figures of Hong Kong. De Kai is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and Distinguished Researcher at Berkeley’s ICSI. His campaign to use AI to demonstrate the impact of universal masked against Covid was widely covered by the media. He also serves on the board for the AI ethics think-tank The Future Society. De Kai, who is the creator of ReOrientate, one of Hong Kong’s most well-known world music groups, was also named as one of Google’s eight initial members to its AI Ethics Council. This talk was delivered at a TEDx conference, which is a TED-style event but organized independently by a local group.
