Artificial Intelligence and Indigenous Knowledge

An interview

The following video discusses how Indigenous Knowledges and AI can create opportunities in education to understand important concepts such as sustainability as well as our roles and responsibilities with respect to the environment. This interview was with Ray John Jr. who is from the Oneida Nation and Mathias Babin who is a PhD student at Western University working in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science.

FEEDBACK

“I absolutely love the sections on AI and matrices. I will incorporate them in my next year courses, for sure.” [see https://ai-ed.ca/matrices-1 and https://ai-ed.ca/matrices-2]

“I loved the modelling of area-keeping-perimeter-fixed and perimeter-keeping-area-fixed, alongside the data points that show the relationship! As an aspiring high school maths teacher, I am interested in using that in my future classroom as maybe a consolidation piece after an activity of exploring maximizing area vs. perimeter.”

“Excellent presentation. This should be a PD for teachers.”
