All Utilizing AI

Utilizing AI in 2022 with Chris Grundemann and Frederic Van Haren | Utilizing AI 3×16

AI is now widespread, and companies are starting to look at the real-world impact of machine learning. In this special episode of the Utilizing AI podcast, the three hosts look forward to AI in 2022 and revisit some of our guest questions from season three. First, we turn to the specific markets and verticals served by AI applications. We feel that datasets and models will increasingly be focused on specific business uses instead of being general-purpose tools. Next, we consider how the AI industry is increasingly concerned about ethics, bias, and privacy of data. Industry leaders like Timnit Gebru and Cynthia Rudin are showing how important social responsibility is to artificial intelligence. Finally we turn to the continuing progress seen in AI technology. New methodologies, larger models, and increasingly critical real-time applications are transforming the technology, and ML hardware and instructions are everywhere from mobile devices to the datacenter and the cloud.
