Emotional and Artificial Intelligence: A snapshot into AI

Everyone’s heard of Artificial Intelligence or AI for short. We know that it has something to do with technology and by the sounds of it, robots as well. But what exactly is it?

Stanford University Professor, John McCarthy defines it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent system”. In today’s modern era, it is advancing extremely fast and integrating more and more into our lives. Emotional intelligence, on the other hand, has nothing to do with technology. Rather it is the ability to regulate and use one’s emotions in a positive manner, whether it be to properly communicate with others or relieve stress.

An article we found discusses the link between AI and regulation. It explains its use in employment and Deepfakes and an overall understanding into why AI should be regulated.

The article examines in further detail how AI is used to score candidates in video interviews such as through evaluating facial expressions and speech patterns. Despite this technological milestone, concerns such as candidate consent and the disconnected nature of AI evaluations are under scrutiny. To add, there is currently no internationally recognised system to regulate the use of AI.

Further to this, due to the lack of a regulating body, “Deepfakes” can be produced. The article explains deepfakes as “falsified videos created by AI, where a person in an existing image or video has been digitally altered so that they appear as someone else’s likeness”. As they are inauthentic, these can have damaging effects.

The issues raised demonstrate the urgent need for the development of a regulating body to manage the use of AI in the modern world.
