    Black Lives Matter Special - AI & Tech with Natalie Jameson & Caroline Chibelushi

    Black Lives Matter Special - AI & Tech with Natalie Jameson & Caroline Chibelushi

    Welcome to a special edition of the Tech For Good Live podcast, in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.


    As the wave of historic protests that rippled across the world in the wake of the barbaric public execution / murder of George Floyd by police continue, Tech For Good Live is using their platform to make a stand united in solidarity with Black Americans and global citizens to reignite and reinforce an argument around AI and the Technologies baked in bias, accuracy and ethics in the AI systems


     


    Artificial intelligence holds a lot of promise to revolutionise our lives. Still, there's a dark side to the technology that could not only hinder progress on critical equality issues but also exacerbate them.


    In this episode, Natalie Jameson, Innovation Lead at The Landing, is in conversation with Dr. Caroline Chibelushi, specialist in Artificial Intelligence at the Knowledge Transfer Network, discussing what needs to change to make this technology inclusive.

Better than I expect

So, hands up, it’s Bex. I host on this podcast a lot. However, I rarely listen to them when I’m on them because I was there, so I don’t need to listen again. Also what kind of weirdo likes to listen to themselves? NOT ME. I realise it might be good practice to listen to ones I’m on, you know, to learn and improve… but what kind of weirdo likes to learn and improve!?

But, occasionally, I’m not on the podcast, so I listen. And I’m always genuinely surprised by how great they are. What a brilliant, educated team we have and definitely five star guests.

I do realise that the ones I’m on very well may be pants, but you know, if I don’t listen, I can just pretend they didn’t happen.

Love this!

Really enjoying this brilliant podcast. Not listened to the whole back catalogue yet but have really enjoyed all the episodes I have heard. The 2 special series on the Circular Economy & WorkerTech were particularly excellent - really informative, but engaging & accessible at the same time. The weekly shows are good too, bit more freeform with good banter between the presenters & covering some really important topics in an absorbing way. Give it a listen, you won’t regret it :)

Bloody Marvellous

I love listening to these folks chat about tech and goodness. Nicely done show where they don’t take themselves overly seriously but get elbow deep into some fascinating aspects of the world we live in.
