What Lives Inside Our Data Sets? An Introduction to Knowing Machines

Season 4: Episode 1

AI is everywhere, and everyone - from you and me to corporations to the computers themselves - are scrambling to understand it, and our place in it. In this episode, team leads Kate Crawford and Mike Annany have a frank and comprehensive conversation about artificial intelligence, from its technical roots to its epistemic and philosophical implications to how much water it takes to keep it cool.

What is generative AI? What is a dataset? What are the industries currently most affected, and which industries need to watch their backs? Kate and Mike explain it all, and, moreover, ask deeper questions about what it all means for us, and what this series hopes to answer.
