You are warmly invited to a seminar with Arvid Horned, Doctoral student at Department of Computing Science.

Anxiety is a great source of harm to human wellbeing and AI-systems actually tend to worsen this harm, at a more and more global and increasing scale

 

About the seminar
“We come as AI scientists driven by the goal of designing anxiety-sensitive AI systems, i.e. how to use AI systems for reducing the sources of anxiety in society, both from AI systems and beyond (e.g. AI for improving work conditions). Our former research lead us to study how AI can deal with anxiety:  developing AI-systems that can take anxiety into account when supporting humans, using solutions that require a deeper understanding of the psychological aspects of anxiety. In this seminar, which we wish to frame as a discussion narrowing a brainstorming session, we want to talk together about the suitability of AI for dealing with anxiety: are there anxiety-related issues for which AI systems can be a useful tool? Are our computational models sound from a psychological standpoint?”
