PODCAST: The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in Business

Expert in AIQuite recently, I had the very good fortune of connecting with Swathi Young on LinkedIn the other day. She is the founder of TechNotch solutions, a technology strategy and management consulting company in Washington, DC. Swathi Young helps companies leverage the power of machine learning to solve business problems; for example, fraud detection and customer service intelligent agents. And to her credit, she is quite the expert on AI and a number of emerging technologies.

On the podcast we discussed the part ethics plays in artificial intelligence; especially in relation to autonomous vehicles and facial recognition. With the possibility of bias in AI, how can we safeguard the public from the potential harm of predictive policing? How can job seekers complain about algorithmic discrimination when they are unaware it even exists? And just what is “Explainable AI?” Should companies be for or against it?

Tune in for an interesting and very thought provoking episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast! Thanks, in part, to our sponsor – NordVPN.

What happens to your data when you die?

Okay, now this is interesting. Facebook may eventually have more dead users than living ones. According to a study by Oxford Researchers, Facebook will have 4.9 billion deceased users on its system by the year 2100. If Facebook’s current growth rate continues, the dead would outpace the living by 2070. And this brings to mind, an interesting question… What happens to your data after you die? I’ll share a few insights in this episode. | Click here to download the transcript (and links to all the resources cited in the podcast.)

Do we have a right to freedom of thought?

In the future, will we have the freedom to think as we like without fear of economic or judicial reprisals? I hope so. Yet, recent technological advances give me room to pause. In this episode, I discuss scientific advances that can literally read your mind and create pictures based on your thoughts. Intrigued? If so, prepare to be amazed by the other discoveries I stumbled upon this past week. Science fiction is quickly becoming science fact. Can our laws keep up? What about our personal freedoms? Tune in for a very fascinating episode. Click here to download the transcript.

Amazon wants to know more, more and more about you!

When was the last time you bought something from Amazon? Last week? Yesterday? Waiting on a package now? No doubt. Amazon is very popular with millions of people and millions of people more have a big love for the company; me included. However, as wonderful as Amazon is, they do have a side of their business that some would consider creepy. In fact, some people say it is getting creepier and creepier, each passing day. Tune in to learn about their experiments with emotion detection, tracking every inch of your body (literally) and the ever controversial facial recognition software – Rekognition. If you don’t have a problem with companies gathering data on you because you have “nothing to hide” then, I HIGHLY recommend you listen to this special episode.
