In quanti come me? 😅🤦🏼♀️
I was very intrigued by a YouTube video that I found. It was a brief video on How China is Using Artificial Intelligence in the Classroom. They are using the same technology, Electro Enceohalography (EEG) used in hospitals for brain research. They are headbands worn by the students which light up different colours depending on their ‘level’ of concentration. There is not enough research to know if this is beneficial or to the detriment of the student, however since introduced there seems to be higher motivation from the students.
All of the data from these devices are able to be used for government research, however most parents who signed off on this technology, do not fully understand who has access to this data and in what capacity. I understand that the more we understand about how children learn and what motivates them to concentrate more could be extremely beneficial, especially from the perspective of the teachers. To know what teaching methods, work, would be extremely beneficial. However, to use children in this capacity without full testing the risk is once again quite scary. Are we moving to quickly to trust all new and powerful technology? And where do we draw the line, if it isn’t at using children as an experiment, how far will countries go?
I have been thinking about my final project and exploring my topic, so I have been looking, at very much a surface level, Actor Network Theory and how algorithms may fit in…There is so much information and I often enjoy starting with a popular YouTube video. I have also tried to put the early thoughts regarding the theory and the relationship with algorithms into visual representations on Instagram.
aha im gonna gargle your nuttums!!
Changing our world will never be a task for one person and their singular mindset, we are born to be unique for a reason.
Those creative minds who dream up new possibilities, new futures, new technologies. The technological minds who try to make many of those dreams and visions into tangible realities.
It is time that we choose to understand the value of our diversity. Competition between different spheres of thought is a useless endeavor at best and damaging at worst. Human intelligence is not a race with one winner at the end.
It is as chaotic as the natural meadows, closer to the ways of an ecosystem where all thrive because we support one another.
I’m still being charged interest on my student loans. I called up my student loan service provider and they said that they learned of the order to pause all interest as it was being announced to the public. So they are ‘waiting for direction on how to proceed’. They are unsure as to if my loan balance will be back dated to the day that it was announced that they were ordered to be paused.
Long story short, they’re gonna keep charging me interest until they figure out what’s in their best interest. I hate capitalism.
