Artificial decision-making machines have been with us for hundreds of years. We call them corporations and states, and they have hugely accelerated the development of our societies. That’s the argument David Runciman makes in conversation with Azeem Azhar in this week’s episode. Runciman is professor of politics at Cambridge University and host of the “Talking Politics” podcast. He and Azeem discuss what this reframing of artificial intelligence can teach us about navigating the hurdles it presents.
In this podcast, they also discuss:
- How the current dynamics between private enterprises and states will shape the future of technology.
- Why the creators of artificial intelligence should account for politics when creating and implementing their technology.
- How generational politics will shape the 2020 U.S. elections.
