8 online experiences linked to suicide in kids and teens

Mashable

When a child or teenager attempts or dies by suicide, it sets off a desperate search to understand why. While that's the case with many suicide attempts or deaths regardless of the person's age, a child's vulnerability and relative innocence creates a particularly heartbreaking contrast with their feelings of hopelessness. A new study aims to better understand one set of risk factors for youth: their online experiences. Published Monday in JAMA Open Network, the study analyzes data collected by Bark, a parental and school monitoring app that tracks a child's online activity and uses artificial intelligence to detect signs of recent or imminent self-harm or suicidal thinking or behavior. Once the system flags concerning activity, like a Google search for suicide methods or harassing instant messages from a peer, it alerts the child's caregiver or a school official, if the device being monitored is used for classwork.


Why UX should guide AI

#artificialintelligence

If we need to learn one thing about the numerous AI applications around us today, it is that they are examples of "artificial specific intelligence." In other words, they rely on algorithms that are great at very particular tasks, such as selecting a movie based on our watching history or keeping our car in the proper lane on the highway. Because it is so highly specialized, AI greatly outperforms human intelligence in those narrowly defined tasks. Take it from a person who recently spent 50 minutes picking a movie that itself lasted 77 minutes. However, AI's effectiveness at specialized jobs comes at the price of severe context blindness and a general inability to develop meaningful feedback loops: The typical algorithm does not and cannot consider the wider implications of the decisions it makes and hardly affords us users any control over its inner workings.
