Hosted by Dylan Doyle-Burke, a PhD student at the University of Denver, and Jessie J Smith, a PhD student at the University of Colorado Boulder, Radical AI is a podcast featuring the voices of the future in the field of Artificial Intelligence Ethics.
Radical AI lifts up people, ideas, and stories that represent the cutting edge in AI, philosophy, and machine learning. In a world where platforms far too often feature the status quo and the usual suspects, Radical AI is a breath of fresh air whose mission is “To create an engaging, professional, educational and accessible platform centering marginalized or otherwise radical voices in industry and the academy for dialogue, collaboration, and debate to co-create the field of Artificial Intelligence Ethics.”
Through interviews with rising stars and experts in the field we boldly engage with the topics that are transforming our world like bias, discrimination, identity, accessibility, privacy, and issues of morality.
