“Since semester two ended, I have been able to focus on my own Ph.D. research and have a weekly meeting with Eamonn (my supervisor) as usual. My research is continuing with two approaches in parallel; On one hand, I’m reviewing previous articles about machine bias and human bias and working on a systematic review article: ‘Do we really want to get rid of bias from the machine?’ On the other hand, we are arguing that CIAI can influence humans by generating cognitive bias and I’m in investigating how humans have been influenced in history and how to relate those influential techniques with CIAI and designing the experiments to prove my assumptions.
In my leisure time, I started to play outdoor badminton and have been hiking with a few friends. Besides that, I’m working with a Chinese educational institution ‘PACEE’ to make a 1001 video encyclopedia for children. I wrote two scripts for them about AI. One is ‘How robotics help people to fight with Covid-19’ and another is ‘Why machines can talk to you’. The first one has already been published, and I can share a screenshot with you which is the cover of the video and in Chinese (pictured below).
This series of videos will be translated into English as well. Those videos are for sale, however, we also provided them to schools in China’s poor villages for free. I personally regard this project as a way of putting what I learned into practice and as an opportunity to promote the educational equality of AI.”
