Increasingly, machines are making decisions for us every day. Telling me when to leave to get to work on time, detecting cancer, and improving google search results are just a small sample of places in industry & academia where these algorithms are being developed and deployed. A.I. shows up in the news with greater frequency each year, and large corporations are spending massive amounts on talent acquisition and research. And yet, it seems like the public doesn’t understand what these algorithms are. In fact, scientists and engineers who don't work in the field don't fully understand (myself included).
This is a podcast for people who want to understand. I will try to guide us through this very vibrant and active field of research, starting with the basics, and working our way through to the very state of the art. So buckle in, and get ready to learn together.
