A Short Primer on AI Essentials – E069

AI is in the news, everyone is talking about it. But many are still wondering what it is, how it works and why it might be relevant in their work.

In this episode I want to discuss the following:

  • Definition and different types of AI (narrow/specialized AI vs general AI)
  • Brief history and evolution of AI
  • Current state and key AI technologies (machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, etc.)
  • AI Systems that we are already in use
  • Potential benefits and challenges/risks of AI
