CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 12, MIT Technology Review is launching its most ambitious podcast yet, "In Machines We Trust," about the far-reaching impact of artificial intelligence and the automation of everything. Hosted by Jennifer Strong, an award-winning audio reporter, "In Machines We Trust" explores the rise of AI through the voices of people reckoning with the power of the technology.
"People don't realize the impact AI already has on their daily lives, and I think that's because it's shrouded in so many layers of complexity that they sometimes think stories about it aren't for them," Strong said. "I've made a career out of stripping away layers and uncomplicating complicated stories, from public policy to emerging technologies, and the creation of this show is something I've been thinking about for a very long time. This has been an absolute passion project and I'm delighted to finally give it to listeners."
Elizabeth Bramson-Boudreau, CEO and publisher of MIT Technology Review, said: "Audio is one of the most exciting media forms today. With the launch of "In Machines We Trust," MIT Technology Review adds another podcast to its growing suite of journalistic products – a suite that also includes daily reporting on our website, email newsletters, events, a print magazine, and two other podcasts. All of this is in service to our mission to encourage smarter, more informed public conversation about how technologies are shaping our lives and our world."
