AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Voices in AI, voicesinai.com, a series of in-depth interviews between Byron Reese and leading thinkers in AI, is now available as a podcast on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and SoundCloud. Volume 1, a collection of seven episodes, was released today in partnership with argodesign. The seven guests featured are: Yoshua Bengio (Professor; author, Deep Learning), Oren Etzioni (CEO of [Paul] Allen AI Institute), Mark Rolston (argodesign), Jeff Dean (Google), Daphne Koller (Coursera), Nick Bostrom (Author, Superintelligence), Jared Ficklin (argodesign).
"There is no more exciting topic on the planet than AI, and we are delighted to be part of the conversation about how this technology will change business… and the world. Voices in AI explores the philosophical implications of this technology, covering topics as far ranging as the impact of automation on employment all the way up to the possibility of conscious machines," says Byron Reese, the Publisher of Gigaom. He continues, "And we can't imagine a better launch partner for our first seven episodes than argodesign, which does trailblazing work in how to integrate this technology in our daily lives."
Mark Rolston, Founder and Chief Creative at argodesign, is working to shape the new computing paradigm being ushered in by AI. "Through AI, we'll soon see a new stage of humanity that comes face-to-face with its own behavior, laid out in the cold truth of data. On personal, group, and societal levels, we will better understand the cause and effect of our lives. Could we become a better species? Or will we distort this new mirror with politics and bias? For designers, these are the questions of our time, and we're thrilled to explore the subject with Gigaom through Voices in AI, which brings together the seminal thinkers in the field."
Published by Gigaom, Voices in AI is hosted by Byron Reese and serves listeners interested in the implication of AI beyond those of the daily news, who want to understand the metaphysical implications of AI as well as the practical ones.
