Science For the People: Exploring Artificial Intelligence

science for the people 1

Science for the People is a syndicated radio show that focuses on science, popular culture, history, and public policy, and broadcasts across North America. I participated in a great panel of scientists, journalists and researchers to discuss Artificial Intelligence, organized by the show’s host Desiree Schell. Here is the episode’s description:

This week, we’re talking about artificial intelligence, and how thinking machines are fitting into – and changing – our lives and cultures. Should we be concerned or excited about the future of artificial intelligence? To try and find out, we’re joined by a panel of four:

Kerstin Dautenhahn, Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Hertfordshire

Raymond Mooney, Director of the University of Texas Artificial Intelligence Lab

Despina Kakoudaki, Director of the Humanities Lab at American University, and

Rose Eveleth, science writer and host of Gizmodo’s “Meanwhile In The Future” podcast.
