105 - Archive Interview: Michael Bowling, AI poker researcher This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

Are you good at bluffing? Do you think you could beat a computer? What if I told you that it was mathematically proven that the computer would beat you? That's what Michael Bowling did for his program that plays heads-up, limit Texas Hold'Em: he proved that it was impossible to do better than draw against it.
Michael is a professor at the University of Alberta, a research scientist at DeepMind, and has been on Scientific American Frontiers, National Geographic Today, and featured in exhibits at the Smithsonian.
This is an interview from an unreleased archive interview from 2016, recorded at the Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association annual conference. I was pretty green at this then, but Michael's answers are illuminating and just as useful today despite advancements in computer poker since then. He also talked about work being done on video games, and the conversation about artificial general intelligence that was just starting to become intense around the AI community then.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.

104 - ANI, AGI, ASI - What are we talking about? This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

For our second anniversary show, we're going to explain some of the terms that are often used on the show and not always spelled out, like ANI (artificial narrow intelligence), AGI (artificial general intelligence), and ASI (artificial super intelligence). What do they mean, why do so many people talk about them, what do you need to know to follow along?

103 - Guest: Tom White, Machine Perception Artist This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

How does AI see the world? it's easy to take for granted that an AI that is trained on labeled data to recognize certain images very well is seeing them the same way we do, but that's not so. The AI is quite alien, and helping us to see the world through its eyes is Tom White, a New Zealand-based artist. He creates physical artworks that highlight how machines “see” and thus how they think, suggesting that these systems are capable of abstraction and conceptual thinking. He has exhibited computer-based artwork internationally over the past 25 years with themes of artificial intelligence, interactivity, and computational creativity. He is currently a lecturer and researcher at University of Wellington School of Design where he teaches students the creative potential of computer programming and artificial intelligence.

102 - Guest: Richard Ahlfeld, AI for Engineering Optimization This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

When serious engineering with safety of life is at stake - think rockets, engine turbines, aircraft - Richard Ahlfeld brings artificial intelligence to the job. He modeled the Space Launch System as part of his PhD at Imperial College London and now is CEO of Monolith AI, commercializing AI in the role of engineering design and testing. We talk about just how that gets done and what sort of difference it makes over traditional methods.

100 - What We’ve Learned from our Guests This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

100 episodes! And 60 guests: What have we learned from them? We've had everyone from science fiction authors to CEOs, from philosophers to government ministers, and from professors to neuroscientists. All of them helping us wrap our heads around the enormous impact of this thing called AI. I realized two things: (1) I learned a tremendous amount from all these experts giving us their time and brains, and (2) That learning is as valuable today as when they came on the show. So this episode is a guide to those past shows to help you decide what you might want to visit or return to.

097 - Guest: Alison Gopnik, Child Psychology Professor, part 2 This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
 

What is that baby thinking? Alison Gopnik knows. She is the American professor of psychology and affiliate professor of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, writes for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New Scientist, and Scientific American, and has appeared on The Colbert Show and given a TED talk. She has much to tell us about how studying children can inform the development of artificial general intelligence, and in part 2, we discuss topics like epigenetics and the AI alignment problem.
