This episode originally aired on Aug. 18, 2017. The news segment has been edited out, so it is just the interview. The episode seems particularly timely now given the ongoing discussion about AI and the economy, but also because of the current debate over the limitations of deep learning.
In this episode of the ARCHITECHT AI Show, Derrick Harris speaks with Jeremy Howard and Rachel Thomas of Fast.ai, where they teach popular online courses aimed to get students up and running with deep learning. Among other things, Howard and Thomas discuss the promise of deep learning and early student successes (including Hot Dog, Not Hot Dog app from Silicon Valley), as well as the threat of job losses from AI and how seriously we should take Elon Musk's AI warnings.
