The Future of Artificial Intelligence discussions with Professor Andy Pardoe and very special guests across the field, from AI research to AI practice and delivery. We will discuss AI, robotics, science & emerging technologies, together with an in-depth look at how humanity will evolve over the coming years to best take advantage of AI based technologies. Topics will span Science, Technology, Business, Innovation, Startups, Careers and much more. Every episode is packed with insights, knowledge and debate about the Future of Artificial Intelligence. Join me on this amazing journey into the unknown, as we enter a unique point in our history, where humans have built machines that can solve problems better than us.
AI Art (Part 1 - Text) with Shane Neeley (S5 E1)
Warning: Shane does talk about some of his early career working in labs doing experiments with animals, so if you want to skip this detail, please fast forward to 1:30.
New for 2022, I will be exploring a number of examples of AI Art using a range of generative algorithms to achieve the creation of AI Art. In this episode I discuss with Data Scientist Shane Neeley, who has himself experimented with generative algorithms to contribute sections of his books. I recorded this episode towards the end of last year, but it seems even more relevant than ever for 2022.
AI Art take many forms, and in future episodes I will explore other artistic mediums that AI can contribute. However this episode, and Shane's experience has been with text generation.
Shane is an experienced Data Scientist with a demonstrated history of working in the software industry. Skilled in many aspects of biomedical and clinical application development. Well rounded machine learning background that includes aspects of natural language processing, document classification, sentiment analysis and computer vision. Strong engineering professional who graduated from Rice University.
Shane also give some great insights and advice on how to get started in Data Science and build a career in AI and Machine Learning. He also gives some guidance on how to get started with generative algorithms.

In future episodes, I will be exploring other forms of AI Art, from Music, Images, Videos and Films. I will also look at how these technologies can also be applied more into the world of Science, Innovation & Invention.
Explainable AI (XAI) and Transformers for NLP with Denis Rothman (S4 E2)
Denis Rothman (linkedin, amazon) is an Artificial Intelligence Expert, inventor, designer, and full-stack developer of 3 cutting-edge artificial intelligence solutions that he has been innovating using Python AI/ML/DL, Tensorflow, IBM Watson, AWS(Amazon), IBM Q, Azure, Google Cloud. He is also author of the following AI books:
Author of Artificial Intelligence by Example, 2nd Edition,2020, Packt (available on Amazon) Author of Hands-On Explainable AI (XAI) with Python, 2020, Packt (available on Amazon) Author of Transformers for Natural Language Processing, 2021, Packt (available on Amazon) We had a conversation rooted in his two latest books, Explainable AI and Transformers for NLP, but we end up talking about a number of related and unrelated topics.
Fireside Conversation with Michael Wignall, Azure Business Lead at Microsoft UK (S4 E1)
To launch the fourth series I am delighted to announce the first episode: Fireside Conversation with Michael Wignall, Azure Business Lead at Microsoft UK about building a data driven organisation.
Michael Wignall is currently the Azure Business Lead at Microsoft UK and has been with Microsoft for 13 years, having a range of roles, from technology solutions leading all the way to CTO of Microsoft UK. Michael comes with vast experience and knowledge of both Microsoft, but also how data and analytics is helping to drive the performance of their customers. He covers everything within Azure, from the core technologies, to data platforms, IoT, Quantum, Mesh, VR & AR.
For inspiration for the conversation, I used three key topics covered in the recent eBook by Microsoft, entitled “BUILDING A DATA-DRIVEN ORGANISATION - How analytics can give you a competitive edge”. Specifically, disruptive business models, scaling AI culture, and improving decision making throughout an organisation.
Discussion with John Spooner from H2O (S3 E6)
A discussion with John Spooner, who is Head of Artificial Intelligence EMEA at H2O.ai
John is at the centre of one of the most important cloud independent ML platforms available which is founded in the open source and data science community but has evolved to become a major player in the scaled AI enterprise implementations.
Our conversation covers a number of very interesting topics, including MLOps, ML Engineers, Cloud platforms, ML Applications, Driverless AI, the role of Data Scientists and much more.
We also talk about the Kaggle Masters that H2O employ to act as consultants to help clients solve their most difficult analytical challenges and how these experts also feed into the algorithms that will get added into the H2O platform over time.

Echoborg with Phil D Hall (S3 E5)
Echoborg is an amazingly funny and thought-provoking show created afresh each time by the audience in conversation with an artificial intelligence. Listen to me discuss Echoborg with the Founder and Creator Phil D Hall. Phil brought his AI show to my AI Conference last year and it was a big hit with everyone who experienced it, myself included.
Phil is a great guest and even manages to get me talking about my Computer Science teacher from high school, Mr Fry, who really got me excited by the wonders of technology.

Human and Machine Interactions with Bogdan Grigorescu (S3 E4)
A discussion primarily on human and machine interactions with Bogdan Grigorescu who is an experienced AI practitioner. This is an extended discussion covering many different aspects of human and machine interactions. Covering both how we use technology in our personal and work life and highlighting some of the challenges of using more intelligent technologies. Other topics include ethics and devops.
