Azeem’s conversations help you better understand how the tech revolution is changing our world. Season launch: Wednesday, October 2, 2019.
We've already been living with artificial decision-making machines for hundreds of years -- we call them corporations and states. That’s the argument David Runciman makes in conversation with Azeem Azhar in this week’s episode. Runciman is professor of politics at Cambridge University and host of the “Talking Politics” podcast. He and Azeem discuss what this reframing of artificial intelligence can teach us about navigating the hurdles it presents.
The COVID-19 pandemic will cause an economic crisis never seen before, says equity analyst Pierre Ferragu. He joins Azeem Azhar to discuss how this crisis will affect the technology industry, in particular, in the short and long term.
President Kersti Kaljulaid joins Azeem Azhar to explore how legal and technological innovations have helped Estonia create the most advanced e-government in the world, and how this digital republic is navigating the Covid-19 pandemic.
For the first time in history, there are more people on the planet over 65 years old, than under five. How do we adapt to this demographic transformation?

As we wrap up the season and head off to a short summer break, Azeem Azhar reflects on what he learned from his conversations with technology and business leaders on the podcast -- and how those insights may help us understand where the world is headed.
Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the UK, joins Azeem Azhar in conversation about how the technology industry and policy makers can work together to amplify their potential to serve the public good. Regulating big tech, as Blair explains, is only a small part of the solution in a necessary effort to transform our society and economy for the exponential age.
Andrew Ng, former leader of Google’s and Baidu’s AI divisions, joins Azeem Azhar to discuss how businesses should approach AI adoption, and how machine intelligence will change industries and our work.
Economist Carlota Perez joins Azeem Azhar to discuss the life cycle of technology revolutions and how they ultimately change every aspect of society. Perez is optimistic about the future -- she explains how we can harness technology to foster green growth and global development.
Peace is fragile, especially when anyone can use open source technology to build a weapon to inflict harm, online and offline. General Sir Richard Barrons, former Commander of the UK’s Joint Forces Command, makes the case to Azeem Azhar that, as the definition of warfare is changing, we all need to take a more active role in stewarding peace.
