Video Blog: Why AI alone cannot ‘cure’ societal problems

Independent researcher Jun-E Tan shares her realisations while researching the opportunities and challenges that artificial intelligence (AI) has and continues to bring to Southeast Asia. She also encourages civil society to find ways to be active in their respective government’s procurement of AI from technology providers, whether it is the United States or China.

Her video blog is the second in a series, and part of EngageMedia’s AI research that aims to raise the awareness of civil society in Southeast Asia on AI’s human rights and democratic implications. Watch the first video blog with IT for Change Deputy Director Nandini Chami here.
