episode 7: The AI Revolution is Just Beginning (with Nathan Benaich and Ian Hogarth)

Artificial intelligence had a breakout year, with major new developments in disparate fields, from medical biology to defense. AI investors Nathan Benaich and Ian Hogarth, who co-author the annual “State of AI” report, join Azeem Azhar to explore why AI is thriving in those sectors. In addition, they offer their take on the flood of new investments in AI and how we can best keep this technology safe for humanity.

They also discuss:

  • Why AI is fundamentally changing how we research medical science.
  • How an AI system developed to learn the English language can be adapted to understand gene sequences.
  • How the bottlenecks in AI deployment are being exploited by states for competitive advantage.
