Just noticed, there are 4 episodes already up – about far flung sectors of AI progress.
What can it be used for? Is it safe? And how do I get involved?
These are the kinds of questions we often get asked at public events like science festivals, talks and workshops.
We love answering them and really value the conversations and thinking they provoke.
Sadly, we can’t have face-to-face conversations with everyone who is interested in AI.
So, to help us bridge that gap, we’re now launching DeepMind: The Podcast, a new series that we hope will answer these questions and more, while also giving listeners an inside look at how AI research is done at an organisation like DeepMind.”
In my experience, this type of ballyhoo over an initiative of this order and magnitude is usually indicative that a meaningful and perhaps far larger (groundbreaking?) announcement is on the horizon.
Hopefully we’ll learn more soon.
And to be more “on the nose” Google has hosted one or two podcasts, and one or two technology conferences.
But until now – googles message to it’s audience has always been “Here is our “free” product, we hope you enjoy our abundant training video’s and services on how to use our products”. Never once has google tried to ascertain an ongoing vocal dialogue about a product or service with consumers en-mass.
