Ethics of AI: How to get Empowered, Not Overpowered, by AI - Sujay Sundar

Difficulty: ★☆☆

Engagement:    ★★☆

Target Audience: Any

With a world being completely revolutionized through the use of Artificial Intelligence, there have been many concerns of AI being used unnecessarily or unethically. There have also been many conspiracy theories related to how AI might evolve to become human-like and adopt the same negative qualities humans have and many doubts have risen through critical thinking. Will there be a robot takeover? Will AI leverage data against us? Will privacy still be a priority? Or will biased algorithms still be used in hospitals or banks? This workshop will be an interactive session to completely let out what you are thinking about the future of AI and how it might align/not align with your moral principles. No technical knowledge or AI experience is required as this will be a round-table discussion, rather than a lesson

or lecture.

Workshop Dates: July 3rd, 10th, and 17th from 4 – 5 EDT

Difficulty: ★☆☆

Engagement:    ★★☆

Target Audience (but not restricted to): Middle Schoolers

Our eyes are often thought of as the most powerful cameras in the world, but are they really? Many of 

us suffer from refractive eye issues: myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, etc. In this workshop, we will go over how these eye issues develop, their relation to genetics and our habits, how they are diagnosed (including new methods to do with Artificial Intelligence!), and preventive measures (including vision therapy!).
