Group discussion

What do the two opinions convey? What’s your attitude toward AI?

AI is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity. — Dr Kai-Fu Lee

For artificial intelligence to be truly smart, it must respect human values, including privacy. If we get this wrong, the dangers are profound. — Apple CEO Tim Cook

Word formation

Facial recognition (recognize) technology is increasingly popular nowadays. Using just their faces, people can unlock (lock) their smartphones, make payments and take the subway. However, a survey jointly (joint) released by Guangzhou-based Nanfang Metropolis Daily said that almost 65 percent of respondents think that FR technology is being abused. According to Xinhua, many applications do have loopholes that could lead to leaks in personal and facial information data. This has prompted concerns about the security of personal bioinformation. “Physical characteristics, including facial features and fingerprints, are some of the most important identifiers (identify) for individuals. Unlike (like) our ID, which can be modified, our bioinformation stays permanent for life.”

Compound(合成法)

overseas returnee (海归)

Guangzhou + based = Guangzhou-based
loop + hole = loophole
finger + print = fingerprint
bio + information = bioinformation
