Research Seminar - Human-centred AI for Mental Health and Social Good with Interpretability

Presented by Xiaohui Tao, Associate Professor, School of Mathematics, Physics and Computing
15 SEP 2022
12.00 PM - 1.00 PM

Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, alongside the advances in decision making, prediction, knowledge extraction, and logic reasoning are widely implemented to address challenges in diverse areas, for example, machine translation, fraud detection, content recommendation, clinical diagnosis, and autonomous devices. In this talk, we will present and discuss some explorations on adopting explainable AI for mental health and social good. The talk will start with a recent work on quantitative evaluation of factors effecting citizens' happiness with interpretability, and be concluded with a study on depression detection using machine learning techniques based on Quality of Life scales. These typical works reflect our current endeavour on human-centred AI - AI by humanity, for humanity, and with consideration of humanity.
