Maintaining Human Control of Artificial Intelligence with Joanna Bryson

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

Today we’re joined by Joanna Bryson, Reader at the University of Bath.

I was fortunate to catch up with Joanna at the AI conference, where she presented on “Maintaining Human Control of Artificial Intelligence,“ focusing on technological and policy mechanisms that could be used to achieve that goal. In our conversation, we explore our current understanding of “natural intelligence” and how it can inform the development of AI, the context in which she uses the term “human control” and its implications, and the meaning of and need to apply “DevOps” principles when developing AI systems. This was a fun one!

Thanks to our Sponsor!

Before we get going I’d like to send a huge thanks to our friends at HPE for sponsoring this week’s series of shows from the O’Reilly AI Conference in New York City!

At the conference, HPE presented on Infosight, which is the company’s cloud-based AIOps solution for helping IT organizations better manage and ensure the health of their IT infrastructure using AI. I’ve previously written about AIOps, and it’s definitely an interesting use case for machine learning. To check out what HPE InfoSight is up to in the space, visit
