Last Thursday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Technical Office of the Punt TIC Network organized a new virtual meeting. Under the title 'Exploring the future of education through artificial intelligence and human rights' and by Judith Membrives, graduate in communication and multimedia design and master's in philosophy for contemporary techno-scientific and technical challenges of digitization at Lafede.cat, the importance of the symbiosis between artificial intelligence, human rights and education was discussed.
"Initially, artificial intelligence is a set of technologies and research fields. The goal is to create machines that mimic human aspects. However, there is still no agreed-upon definition of artificial intelligence at the international level. In principle, this year, a European regulation is planned", says Membrives. Specifically, Judith Membrives spoke about the work being done by Lafede.cat's Digitization and Human Rights Group and presented practical cases of public policies linked to artificial intelligence. "Artificial intelligence is created by human beings and, therefore, there are power relations that cross these technologies. In this sense, it is necessary to control and supervise the most vulnerable points of artificial intelligence through human interventions", explains Membrives.
In the same way, Judith Membrives reviewed some concepts about artificial intelligence to understand how algorithms influence day-to-day and everyday life and to promote a more democratic, diverse, decolonial and respectful of human rights. "Technology is not objective. For this reason, it is necessary to take into account all the inequalities that are registered in the databases with the aim of not perpetuating and maximizing them", concludes Membrives.
