AI has been described as “Thor’s Hammer“ and “the new electricity.” But it’s also a bit of a mystery – even to those who know it best. We’ll connect with some of the world’s leading AI experts to explain how it works, how it’s evolving, and how it intersects with every facet of human endeavor. This podcast is produced by NVIDIA, the AI computing company. Multiple episodes are released every month.

AI Pioneer Kai-Fu Lee Discusses His New Work of Fiction - Ep. 158
One of AI’s greatest champions has turned to fiction to answer the question: how will technology shape our world in the next 20 years?
Kai-Fu Lee, CEO of Sinovation Ventures and a former president of Google China, spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future. The book, his fourth available in the U.S. and first work of fiction, was in collaboration with Chinese sci-fi writer Chen Qiufan, also known as Stanley Chan.
Lee and Chan blend their expertise in scientific forecasting and speculative fiction in this collection of short stories, which was published in September.
Among Lee’s books is the New York Times bestseller AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order, which he spoke about on a 2018 episode of the AI Podcast.
Real or Not Real? Attorney Steven Frank Uses Deep Learning to Authenticate Art - Ep. 157
Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of Jesus, known as Salvator Mundi, was sold at a British auction for nearly half a billion dollars in 2017, making it the most expensive painting ever to change hands.
However, even art history experts were skeptical about whether the work was an original of the master rather than one of his many protégés.
Steven Frank is a partner at the law firm Morgan Lewis, specializing in intellectual property and commercial technology law. He’s also half of the husband-wife team that used convolutional neural networks to determine that this painting was likely an authentic da Vinci.
He spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about working with his wife, Andrea Frank, a professional curator of art images, to authenticate artistic masterpieces with AI’s help.
AI of the Tiger: Conservation Biologist Jeremy Dertien - Ep. 156
Fewer than 4,000 tigers remain worldwide, according to Tigers United, a university consortium that recently began using AI to help save the species.
Jeremy Dertien is a conservation biologist with Tigers United and a Ph.D. candidate in wildlife biology and conservation planning at Clemson University.
He spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about a project deploying AI-equipped cameras to monitor poaching in central India, where more than 70 percent of the remaining tiger populations reside.
Metaspectral’s Migel Tissera on AI-Based Data Management - Ep. 155
Moondust, minerals and soil types are just some of the materials that can be quickly identified and analyzed with AI, based on images of them.
Migel Tissera is co-founder and CTO of Metaspectral, a Vancouver-based startup that provides an AI-based data management and analysis platform for ultra-high-resolution images.
He spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about how Metaspectral’s technologies help space explorers make quicker and better use of the massive amounts of image data they collect out in the cosmos.
In addition to space, the startup’s platform is used across industries such as agriculture, forensics and recycling.
