Conference Paper Global Brain That Makes You Think Twice

Rafal, Rzepka  ,  Michal, Mazur  ,  Austin, Clapp  ,  Kenji, Araki

In this position paper we introduce our approach to positive computing by developing and integrating methods for future assistant and companion agents which could help us a) avoid making mistakes due to biases caused by insufficient knowledge, b) be more empathic and righteous, c) be more sensitive and thoughtful. We present text processing techniques for automatic discovery of possible reasoning errors and provide hints to make users doubt their beliefs when there is a possibility of harm. We present existing sources and methods, discuss on how natural language processing technologies could contribute to various aspects of well-being by giving examples of systems we develop, and describe the strengths and weaknesses of our approach.
