S3Ep13: AI for Humanity

Updated: Nov 7, 2021

Though change is scary, it is also inevitable. One of the things that are changing at a rapid rate is our workforce. We don’t work on machines anymore, we work with machines now. Whether we like it or not, all companies are becoming data companies and with this, there is a rise in privacy concerns, and public confidence is at an all-time low. How do we find balance? How do we find the center? Understanding our fundamental human rights in regard to AI is critical in understanding where we go from here. If you want to be a part of the legal future of society, this season is for you. In the coming episodes, we speak to George Zarkadakis, an AI scientist, and Michael Robins, who is pioneering decentralized education with aspirations for a different web3. Catch up on the first few episodes now and tune in for this short but insightful introduction, as we prepare to delve into the important subject of human rights in the world of AI!

“Change, even the smallest change can feel scary. Sameness feels safe; you know what’s to come, you know what’s happening. Change has a risk of unknown outcomes incorporated. But change is here.” — @baharansarilaw [0:03:44]

“Our workforce has changed. We work with machines now and not just on machines. And, no, we do not yet work for machines, but working with machines is a big responsibility.” — @baharansarilaw [0:04:00]
