In Machines We Trust

A podcast about the automation of everything. Host Jennifer Strong and the team at MIT Technology Review look at what it means to entrust artificial intelligence with our most sensitive decisions.Algorithms decide who receives social services, goes to jail, gets into college, qualifies for loans, or lands a job. We also look to AI to read and interpret our emotions, determining whether we’re happy, sad, angry, distracted… or even a threat. Tech Review’s editors and reporters explore the impact of artificial intelligence on the way our future will work.
