original title: if we do well, AI can help us learn how to become better people

will AI assist human beings or replace human beings in the future? This is a problem

every industrial revolution will trigger an efficiency revolution and eliminate a large number of inefficient practitioners. This AI revolution will improve the efficiency of all industries, which has aggravated human anxiety

it is true that human beings have many concerns about artificial intelligence, believing that they weaken the meaning of "being born human". But in fact, if done well, machines can help us learn how to become better people

although there are many jobs that are very suitable for AI applications, it is clear that dealing with human emotions may be different from any of them. The application of artificial intelligence technology in the field of human emotion shows that artificial intelligence plays a great role in assisting human communication

the problem of "shyness" is left to AI to solve.

it is conservatively estimated that about 75% of harassment or discrimination incidents in the workplace have not been reported - the researchers who made this estimate found that the least frequently used way for people to deal with harassment experience is to report. There are various reasons for this situation, including the fear of evaluation or revenge, as well as the pain and trouble caused by recalling emotional excitement. "Humans are very shy. They don't have to talk to people, so technology can help solve this problem." Said Julia Shaw, a memory scientist in London and author of memory illusion

in February 2018, Xiao and her two software engineer partners jointly launched spot, an Internet-based chat robot that uses artificial intelligence to help people talk about things that make them miserable in these product portfolios. The design of the application is based on an interview technology developed by psychologists and used by the police station to ensure that the recorded narrative is as comprehensive and accurate as possible. It also provides anonymous options for people who report events

spot chat robot learns from the user's initial description. At the same time, it will also capture the user's response from the query of some specific questions. With the cooperation of the user and the robot, the relevant event report with time mark is generated, and then the user can choose to send the report to his organization or keep it by himself. So far, more than 50000 people have visited spot (the station does not record who continues to report). The station is open 24 hours a day, so users do not need to make an appointment with the human resources department

"in these cases, evidence is indeed very important, and accuracy is also very important," Xiao said. "The reason why spot is useful is that it eliminates the barrier in human interaction. Human interaction not only has risks, but also leads to inconsistencies in 'storage'."

empathy with human beings, artificial intelligence has a set of

spot is just a tool in the emerging market of machine learning assisted apps. It is trying to cope with the great dominance of human emotions. According to the report of the National Institute of economics, the number of U.S. patent applications involving machine learning increased from 145 in 2010 to 594 in 2016. By the end of 2018, the number of active AI startups had been 14 times that of 2000. Among them, more and more companies are designing AI applications specifically around human emotions. Spot was invented and used to help end discrimination in the workplace, but according to Xiao, it is also a "memory scientist in the pocket" that can improve one of our human weaknesses: emotional memory backtracking

using machine learning and artificial intelligence to understand and deal with human emotions seems ironic, and may even be wrong behavior, but machines can think "clearly" in some specific areas, which is very difficult for humans

for example, the messaging application IXY is a "personal AI mediator", which helps promote text chat. It can preview the text and then tell the user how to contact others, aiming to eliminate the anxiety problems in people to people communication. Beyond verbal, headquartered in Israel, has also released its "emotion analysis" software. This patented technology is dedicated to interpreting the emotional and health status of people through their voices. It is used to help call centers adjust the communication between employees and customers, help companies monitor employee morale, and enable AI virtual assistants to better understand the emotional state of users

Yoram Levanon, chief scientific officer of beyond verbal, is the inventor of this technology. He envisions more ambitious applications, including monitoring people's physical and emotional states by analyzing the biological characteristics of human voice. This app can recognize the way we speak, which may be more important than what we say

Levinson said, "AI can help us, but it can't replace us. I think AI plays a complementary and auxiliary role to human beings. It is very important to help human beings to have empathy and understand human emotions."

some institutions have begun to use similar artificial intelligence, such as the audio deep learning technology developed by sherlok company in Australia. Brisbane City Council uses this technology to scan email, letters, forum discussions and voice to reveal the "pain points" of callers and improve the skills of their employees. Another best practice of emotion oriented AI technology is to be applied to sales management. A case shows that an industry-leading company can obtain better performance insight by using it to detect the emotional differences of senior management in response to the content called for by quarterly analysts

who dominates AI behind it

at this point, you may begin to hear the alarm of "dystopia". People worry that artificial intelligence will be effectively used to judge our personality rather than our performance, and the judgment that it will not produce liquid leakage when producing solid-liquid phase transition is not necessarily correct. The various prejudices existing in AI are largely due to the prejudices of the people who built it. There is a saying among developers - "garbage input, garbage output", which means that the technology may only be as good or fair as its database and algorithm, rather than better or fairer

A more striking example of AI is Microsoft's tay, which was forced to shut down within 24 hours after its launch in March 2016. Tay is designed to talk to real people on social media and reply to personalized content based on previous interactions. But no one really regards it as a reliable chat object. When the other party talks about racism, discrimination against women and homosexuals, and other extremely rude content, the chat robot itself soon begins to reply to ugly comments

The change of

tay is not an abnormal condition. If AI technology is not used negatively, it may lead to worse results, increased prejudice and stronger discrimination, which is a double-edged sword for this technology

irresponsible AI technology may lead to destructive consequences. For example, in May 2016, the investigative agency propublica found that the algorithm used to determine whether the defendant may pose a risk in the U.S. court system mistakenly marked blacks as potential retrials, twice the proportion of whites. In this case, AI is not that I make its relevant information available to the attention of many groups of audiences. It is the kinder angel in nature, but the devil in the mirror

the core of this problem is that male Caucasians dominate among Algorithm Engineers. Technology should be designed in an unbiased vacuum and should not be affected by other perspectives. The breeding of unconscious prejudice may have adverse consequences for tools such as recruitment software. In fact, we have found that these tools put some job seekers at a disadvantage. Another question is, is this the result we want? At the beginning of this year, Amazon obtained two patents for tracking bracelets, which can monitor the whereabouts of employees, causing controversy

artificial intelligence makes us better people

mccargow said that generally it will take more than 3 to 5 years to replace), and the lubricating oil is mobilgear632 (Mobil): "we are still at the foot of the mountain, and more and more enterprises are developing and testing AI technology, but it is not necessarily widely used in enterprises. I think the key is that although it may not have a significant impact on the labor force, we need to consider it now for the future."

the future has arrived. Spot application provides people with a way to record and clarify their harassment reports. IXY can provide real-time feedback of mobile chat to help users communicate barrier free. Beyond verbal hopes to help people listen between the lines of the conversation, so as to better understand each other. More and more new technologies are emerging. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Their purpose is to help users navigate the emotional vortex of human beings. There will be more AI applications in the future, and we can rely on them

most technologies in history - printing presses, textile mills, and so on, have made huge and subtle changes to workers, creating a changing but recognizable landscape. All changes in AI are similar to previous technological changes. As McCarthy put it, people have a lot of concerns about the machines that erode our humanity, believing that these machines weaken the meaning of human beings. But this is not the case. If done well, machines can help us learn how to become better people
