It is my honour to speak with Professor Luciano Floridi this month on subjects like information philosophy: “philosophy or our time, for our time”; understanding that mistakes happen in technology whether they’re design issues, bugs or oversights at big companies; what is the meaning of life in the digital world? And much much more.
This month, with the lead up to the new GDPR European personal data legislation coming in, we talk to digital rights campaigner Ruth Coustick-Deal on everything personal data.
This month I interview Greg Edwards to get to grips with the basics of machine learning. We look at the history of AI, what machine learning consists, try to describe how neuronets work, and discover the new and interesting ideas in AI research.
This month I speak to Charles Radclyffe in Bristol's Engine Shed about dubious business models exploiting technology, differing narratives of tech ethics, using the court for automated car law preemptively and much more.

This episode I share the interviewer responsibilities with Conscious Cities' podcaster Josh Artus. I get to ask Josh some questions and Josh has some for me (Ben Byford). We chatted about: AI data misrepresentation, bias and misuse; mindful technology implementation; using AI for things other than tricking people into looking at adverts; EEG misrepresentation; Bristol is Open and technology used in the public section in our cities; and much more.
