Cade Metz, technology correspondent at The New York Times, joins Azeem Azhar to discuss his new book Genius Makers. In it, he tells the fascinating story of the pioneers who brought AI out of academic labs, sparking a Big Tech arms race and transforming our everyday lives.

 They also discuss:

  • How deep learning went from an unworkable concept to fueling the AI boom.
  • Why bias and prejudice “baked in” to an AI system are almost impossible to remove.
  • Which early signals tech giants followed to develop AI even before deep learning went mainstream.
