Mass STEM Week 2020 Keynote: Prof. Cynthia Breazeal on Teaching Ethical Use of AI

Prof. Cynthia Breazeal, Associate Director of the MIT Media Lab and founder of its Personal Robots Group, delivers the keynote address at the kickoff event for Massachusetts STEM Week 2020. The event also featured remarks from MIT President L. Rafael Reif and was co-hosted by MIT’s Office of Community and Government Relations K-12 Outreach Administrator Rohan Kundargi.

Breazeal’s talk, “Preparing the Creative, Empathetic and Ethical AI Designers of Tomorrow,” speaks to a brave new era in the use of artificial intelligence, one in which children are being raised alongside robots and AI technology, often without consideration of the impact their interactions with AI will have on their own lives and the lives of others.
