"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.

Previous episodes feature: 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), Esther Dyson (Author, Investor), Soumith Chintala (Researcher at Facebook AI Research), Suchi Saria (Professor at John Hopkins), among others.
