IREX Director, Daniel Eborall recently held an open webinar with IREX Behavior Analyst & Board Certified Psychologist, Gerron Cooper, M. Sc, BCBA, LBA. The webinar, “Exploring the Psychology behind AI Video Analytics” has gained fantastic feedback from both the public and private sector, including; mayors, police chiefs, government officials and tech advisory boards.
Psychology has taken a huge role within AI Video Analytics, this was echoed with IREX Behavior Analyst, Gerron explaining:
“I see psychology playing a leading, if not, co-leading role in the development of Ethical AI and Video Analytics. Because we are trying to replicate what human beings already do - so it’s important to continually involve the people who understand human beings as much as anyone understands anyone to then inform those decisions being made in terms of programming, the AI learning paths and the neural networks.”
