Persuasive Intent
"As artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly integrated into our lives and our decision-making processes, many people do not understand where AI is regularly being used, or how it might impact their lives. Just as computer literacy allowed the public to engage with society through modern technology, AI literacy is becoming increasingly necessary to engage with the AI systems that permeate our personal and professional lives. In this TEDx talk, a PhD student and AI YouTuber will discuss why AI literacy is the next wave of technological literacy, and how you can get ahead of the AI curve. I’m a Ph.D. student in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics at the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program. My research focuses on deep learning and neurotechnology for brain stimulation and control systems. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community."
