Exhibition Tour

Our MAAIES students visited the Science Fiction: Voyage to the Edge of Imagination Exhibition at the Hong Kong Science Museum. This exhibition presents an engaging and immersive experience into the captivating world of science fiction. It highlights the connections between scientific advancements, such as Artificial Intelligence, and renowned science fiction works. Our students were empowered to critically assess the social implications of emerging technology. They were inspired to consider the opportunities and obstacles of the present and future through the prism of science fiction.


Students' reflection

"One of the sections of this exhibition highlights the potential risks associated with the use of AI algorithms. While AI can greatly improve and simplify our lives, AI is still not infallible. AI algorithms learn from the data they are provided with, and if this data is too narrow or biased, it could lead to biases in the AI's decision-making. This raises important ethical questions about the use of AI and the responsibility of those who develop AI. As a student of AI ethics, I understand that it is crucial for AI developers to be aware of potential biases and to actively work to mitigate them. This can be achieved by utilizing diverse data sources, conducting thorough testing, and implementing fairness and transparency measures. Additionally, it is also essential for users of AI technology to be aware of these potential biases and to question the decisions made by these programs. By being vigilant and informed, we can ensure that AI technology is used more ethically and responsibly."

"The section on altering human code caught my attention. The advancements in decoding and modifying DNA offer immense potential for medical breakthroughs. However, it also raises profound questions about the limits of human intervention and the potential consequences of playing with the fundamental building blocks of life. The question of whether we should alter the human genetic code goes beyond the realm of scientific capability and delves into the realm of ethics and morality. On one hand, the ability to modify genetic code opens up possibilities for eradicating hereditary diseases, improving human health, and potentially even enhancing certain traits. On the other hand, there is a risk of crossing ethical boundaries, such as creating a society where genetic superiority determines worth or perpetuating inequality by making certain modifications available only to the privileged few."
