AI and Sustainability: Opportunities and Challenges in the 21st Century
Topic: What would AI-enabled communities in Northumberland County look like through the lens of sustainability (i.e., privacy, sustainable employment and the ethical use of machine learning)?
Target Audience: Grade 9 geography and senior-level students working on a Specialist High Skills Major.
Skills: Digital literacy in the knowledge “gig” economy. Grade nine geography students will learn how AI-enabled decision making will impact the built and natural environment with a focus on social mobility. Senior-level students will be led through a “sector partner contextualized experiential learning” activity aligned to the “innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship” requirement. This hands-on activity will be led by Ali Hirji and his team of students from Durham College’s AI Hub.
Former Google AI Researcher to Address Students
Dr. Jack Poulson and panelists will discuss how Artificial Intelligence, big data and machine learning could impact our communities. Durham AI/Hub will provide a workshop on cybersecurity and surveillance issues. High school students will be challenged to think critically about the benefits and tradeoffs of using AI-enabled Geographical Information Systems. Will this technology help us adapt to climate change without sacrificing our basic human rights?
