AI and Society: Past, Present and Future with Eric Horvitz

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we continue our AI Innovation series joined by Microsoft’s Chief Scientific Officer, Eric Horvitz.

In our conversation with Eric, we explore his tenure as AAAI president, and his focus on the future of AI and its ethical implications, the scope of the study on the topic, and how drastically the AI and machine learning landscape has changed since 2009. We also discuss Eric’s role at Microsoft, and the Aether committee that has advised the company on issues of responsible AI since 2017.

Finally, we talk through his recent work as a member of the National Security Commission on AI, where he helped commission a 750+ page report on topics including the Future of AI R&D, Building Trustworthy AI systems, civil liberties and privacy, and the challenging area of AI and autonomous weapons.
