A weekly podcast about the business of cloud computing, artificial intelligence and data science. Hosted by Derrick Harris.

Jun 20, 2017

In the inaugural episode of The AI Show, Derrick Harris speaks with co-founder and CEO Geordie Rose about a wide range of issues in artificial intelligence and quantum computing (Rose also co-founded D-Wave Systems in 1999). Among the topics Rose covers are how is seeking to build artificial general intelligence and the importance of a physical embodiment in that quest; the commercial viability and challenges of different approaches to quantum computing; the ethics of human-AI interaction; and whether his Canadian homeland can really become the world's AI epicenter.

In the news segment, co-hosts Derrick Harris, Signe Brewster and Chris Albrecht discuss Element AI's $102 million funding round; the AI showdown between the U.S. and China; what the Tertill weed-cutting robot says about the state of consumer robotics; Facebook's negotiating bots; and the robot the could be flipping burgers at a restaurant near you.
