Talk 1: Combating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with AI - Albert Lai

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide, most prevalent in refugees, victims of war, and veterans. Unfortunately, 97% of these individuals receive no treatment at all. Using AI to create a conversational chatbot for risk diagnosis and low-level therapy can be an accessible and safe tool to use for the countless victims of PTSD. In this talk, Albert will show the process of how he and 45 other researchers from around the world approached this problem and developed a solution to help millions around the world!

Bio: Albert Lai is a 16-year-old machine learning and brain-computer interface developer. He’s developed projects in computer vision and natural language processing, along with applications in brain-computer interfaces. Currently working as an Artificial Intelligence Developer in Ocutherapy, his focus includes analyzing healthcare metrics to build predictive models designed to better understand virtual reality-based rehabilitation. He enjoys running half-marathons, building robots, and playing chess in his spare time.

Talk 2: Timothy Quinn - Hate speech

Hatebase is a Toronto startup that uses natural language processing to help companies rid their ecosystems of hate speech, while also helping government agencies, law enforcement and NGOs perform threat assessments in conflict areas. This talk will focus on some of the challenges Hatebase has encountered in analyzing online conversation while balancing users' expectation of free speech against governments' regulatory crackdowns on hate speech, as well as on opportunities for future innovation in the field of content moderation.

Bio: Timothy Quinn is a co-founding principal of Hatebase, as well as Chief Technology Officer of the government procurement platform OMX. He is an advisor to several organizations, including the United Nations, the International Development Research Centre, NeedsList and the Canadian Executive Service Organization.
