    In this episode of Pretty Good Podcast, AI researcher Dr. Jun-E Tan expounds on her 2021 research with EngageMedia on AI governance in Southeast Asia, emphasising the importance of contextualising this technology based on what the region needs. Jun-E also discusses the need for Southeast Asian countries to look at existing mechanisms that are within their control, and how these can be used to govern AI technology in ways that protect their people.

    Episode 14: Can Open Source Video Platforms Challenge YouTube?

    With Big Tech monopolies owning many of the online services we regularly use, is there still a space (and an audience) for open source platforms and content outside this mostly proprietary ecosystem?
