“Now we have tools that effectively allow nearly any company in the world to be an AI expert, but they don’t need the data science expertise.”

“The AI element that comes into VR is by bringing avatars to life when there’s no humans behind them.”

“When you come in and you see an experience and you see an avatar and you don’t know if that’s a real person or an AI, that is kind of like that ‘wow’ moment where VR and AI get together.”

When we’re in VR, our perception of reality changes, because we’re accepting cartoon…

This week’s guest is Paul Ford, CEO of the insurtech company Traffk. Highlights from our conversation include:

“Even many data scientists, especially insurance actuaries, have no clue what AI is, or machine learning.”

“Everyone should stay really focused on incrementally using machine learning and AI to solve really basic problems. You thread enough of those together, it looks transformational.”

We don’t believe that AI and machine learning will lead to a dystopian future where agents don’t exist or underwriters just don’t exist.

This week’s guest is Charles Ahmadzadeh, CTO of the AI leadership coach app company Bunch. Highlights from our conversation include:

If we can deliver the value without AI, we would always go with that solution because it’s a lot, usually, simpler, people understand it better. So doing AI for the sake of it, I think, has never really been part of what we do. We just ended up doing AI to deliver the solution.”

“Something very important to keep in mind when you design any kind of AI is not…

“I think that AI in a box or AI as a standalone, one-time product that you buy from a company is a fallacy . . . . I think as long as you are constantly monitoring [the models], you’re fine. When you’re not, I think you can run into some trouble.”

“I think a lot of people think that AI is just keyword search in some way, shape, or form, and don’t…

Maybe AI is an opportunity to sort of rewrite the rules in humanity’s relationship to work. As more of our work is automated, we can begin to explore more of what’s important to us.”

“UBI gives the opportunity for those workers whose work is replaced by AI to invest in themselves, to find new skills, to start a new business, to make the decision for themselves of how they will carry on with their…

“This idea of so-called robot rights is something that people not only ascribe to sci-fi, but also I think it’s something people feel like they can brush it aside. But what is the non-human that is worshiped, that people worship every single day in this country and that is prescribed personhood without a second thought? The corporation!”

“Before we can have policy debates, we need to start with this basic idea…

“When you’re picking an AI solution, picking as simple as possible to start with is actually always the best advice.”

This week’s guest is Andrew Burt, Managing Partner of the AI-focused law firm bnh.ai. Andrew’s interview is full of great insights like these:

The biggest barrier to the adoption of AI and machine learning is not actually technical. The actual technology is fairly commoditized. The biggest barriers are risk-related and they’re policy-related and they’re law related.”

AI is great, but if you want to be serious about responsible AI, you need to be ready to respond when something actually goes wrong.”

“Even without new regulations on AI, there are a whole…

Beyond AI for Its Own Sake

“We’re at a good point where people quit talking about AI for AI’s sake itself and focus more on, are we doing this right? Is it helping me? And are these solutions really good?”
