看到技術大廠和個人運用機器學習技術幫助身心障礙、學習障礙的患者,能更好的在這個世界活下去,比起看到 AlphaGo 大殺四方和 Libratus 贏了多少錢的新聞,心頭多了幾分暖意

比如:

  • YouTube 開發新演算法讓字幕更人性,更好理解,聽障人士的福音

(Youtube) rolled out algorithms that indicate applause, laughter, and music in captions. More sounds could follow, since the underlying software can also identify noises like sighs, barks, and knocks.

  • MIT 和 IBM 合作開發語言處理軟體,協助閱讀障礙和認知障礙的患者理解文本

Researchers at IBM are using language-processing software developed under the company’s Watson project to make a tool called Content Clarifier to help people with cognitive or intellectual disabilities such as autism or dementia. It can replace figures of speech such as “raining cats and dogs” with plainer terms, and trim or break up lengthy sentences with multiple clauses and indirect language.Researchers at IBM are using language-processing software developed under the company’s Watson project to make a tool called Content Clarifier to help people with cognitive or intellectual disabilities such as autism or dementia.

  • 自閉症譜系障礙的患者,開發軟體幫助有同樣困擾的患者,學習更加獨立

Austin Lubetkin, who has autism spectrum disorder, has worked with Florida nonprofit Artists with Autism to help others on the spectrum become more independent.

好吧,或許是我鄉愿,但我真心希望機器學習能帶給人類更多好處。


Software that can understand images, sounds, and language is being used to help people with disabilities such as deafness and autism in new ways.
