Hello everyone, Congratulations on finishing week 2. So this week, we discussed bias and human rights. So, the themes that I would like you to carry with you going forward. This idea that artificial intelligence is becoming better and better, and gathering more and more data, making more and more predictions about us. And knowing more about us than maybe we know about us. In exposing things about are collective history in terms of bias, and exposing those biases. And in the face of that, In the face of understanding more and more about us, In the face of understanding more and more about us, how are we dealing with that from human rights perspective? What human rights are being violated, if any?

What human rights are being protected? What rights do we not know yet whether or not they are being protected or violated? So ethically, how are we dealing with this exponential growth in information regarding humans, regarding our future? Predicting us, forecasting us, forecasting our action, How do we deal with this ethically in the face of this exponential growth? So next week we will be digging deeper into this idea of human rights, Into what I call social manipulation. And the issue of algorithms being used in autonomous weapons system, and autonomous driving vehicles. Again, it’s been an honor to be learning with you. As always please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by email. Thanks everybody and take care.
