What is Artificial Intelligence? How do Machines Learn? This and more on Episode #1 of The Imaginary Possible

 

What is AI? How will it change our lives? How is it already changing our world for the better and for the worse?

 
Everyone is taking about AI.  Some people argue it will save us, others it will lead to human extinction. In this episode of The Imaginary Possible, I first look at what Artificial Intelligence is and how machines learn.  I then speak with Edward James, who has studied in data engineering, data science, linguistics, and behavior analysis. Edward also operates a psilocybin facilitation school in Oregon.
 
Among other things Suzanne and Edward discuss:
 
  • How Edward got  introduced to artificial intelligence
  • What artificial intelligence is
  • AI as a disruptive technology and the big changes it will have on education and the job market.
  • The dangers of deep fake technology especially with respect to bullying and cyberbullying
  • Public perceptions of AI and the widespread fear of AI
  • The importance of experimentation and having fun as a way to adapt to AI
