《人工智能助力新冠肺炎疫情防控网络互动读本》

简介
在新兴技术的强大支持下,全世界的人们都在为了对抗新冠肺炎疫情,以及未来可能出现的全球健康威胁做准备。人工智能(AI)就是其中之一,它已经频繁地应用于我们的日常生活中,包括教育、医疗、金融等各个领域。想象一下,人工智能是一个超级英雄,他在流行病期间与你一起保护世界并为此战斗,你可以学习认识他,并与他互动,这是不是很有吸引力?现在这个《人工智能助力新冠肺炎疫情防控网络互动读本》(简称“读本”)就提供了这样一个机会,你可以从中认识到这个超级英雄是如何工作的,以及他是以什么样的方式对抗新冠肺炎的。

首先,读本在第1章介绍了一些关于人工智能的知识,包括人工智能的简要历史和相关的术语,为小读者准备了关于人工智能的基本知识。接着,读本详细介绍了计算机如何像人类一样与世界互动。第2章主要介绍计算机认识世界的方式,以及人脸和语音识别在疫情期间提供的帮助。第3章主要讨论计算机的表示和推理能力,以及疫情期间医疗诊所诊断和增强现实咨询的工作原理。第4章介绍了机器学习的力量,它可以预测病毒的传播,加速医疗解决方案的形成。第5章进一步讨论计算机如何利用自然语言处理与人类互动。

此外,这几章还通过互动编程环境,可视化内容呈现等互动操作形式,让青少年学习和体验人工智能。我们把基于前端交互技术的在线网络读本称为动书
动书基于HTML页面呈现,通过iframe等技术,将各种多媒体资源插入到页面中,如支持交互编程的JupyterHub平台、神经网络可视化平台、知识图谱问答平台等,通过网络前端和Web通信技术,实现AR展示、物联网控制、模型训练等多种操作,学生可以直观地操作和体验,将知识性和趣味性融合在一起。

此外,我们也在最后一章关注了人工智能可能带来的社会问题。

读本通过生动有趣的故事和即时交流互动,帮助青少年,尤其是9到15岁的孩子们在了解人工智能实际应用的同时,理解其中的基本原理,学习并尝试使用简单的人工智能代码,体验运用人工智能解决实际问题的乐趣,激发他们的兴趣以及进一步学习人工智能的意愿。该读本也可以供其他不同年龄段、可能没有任何人工智能知识背景的人阅读。家长和老师可以利用这个读本向青少年介绍人工智能,并引导他们与书中代码进行互动。
 
Interactive Book on Artificial Intelligence to Combat Pandemics
Introduction / Executive Summary

To combat coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as preparing for future global health threats, people around the world are in action, with the powerful support of those emerging technologies. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of them, which has been frequently used in our daily life among various domains, including education, medicine, finance, etc.

Imagine AI as a super hero who is protecting and fighting with you during the pandemic, isn’t it attractive that you can learn to know and interact with him?
This interactive book is now providing such an opportunity, from which you can acknowledge how this super hero works and in what ways he fights against COVID-19.

First, the book starts with introducing some facts about AI, including a brief history of AI and several related terms, to prepare the young readers with basic knowledge about AI.

From chapter 2 to chapter 5, details about how computers interact with the world like human do are introduced. Chapter 2 focuses on the way computers recognize the world and how face and speech recognition help during COVID-19. Chapter 3 mainly discusses the representation and reasoning abilities of computers and how medical clinic diagnosis and Augmented Reality consultation work during COVID-19. Chapter 4 introduces the power of machine learning which can predict the spread of coronavirus and accelerate healthcare solutions. Chapter 5 further discusses how computers interact with human utilizing natural language processing. Moreover, these chapters also present hands-on learning experience about AI by showing simple programming code that children could use and implement on the JupyterLab environment, which is an open-source web-based interactive development environment that can support a wide range of workflows in data science, scientific computing, and machine learning.

Besides, the last chapter concerns how AI impacts our life, as well as what we should keep in mind to avoid social and ethical issues.

To conclude, the purpose of this book is to help prepare the young generation for the next crisis/pandemic in the era of AI, especially children between the age of 9 and 15, in an easy and fun way. However, it should be noted that this book can also be read by other people with different ages who may not have any background about AI. Parents and teachers can use this book to introduce AI to their children or students respectively, and guide them to interact with the presented code online.
