“Intelligence is central to everything humans do, and artificial intelligence should be no exception.” With these words, Joanna Bryson urges for stronger professional standards for software engineers and experts designing intelligent-like systems.

Joanna is a tenured associate professor at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom, where she founded the Bath Intelligence Systems group. She is one of the world’s leading AI researchers, uniting the perspectives of computer science, psychology, and biology in her work.

In this podcast, Azeem Azhar and Joanna explore:

  • The role of goals in conceptualizing and programming intelligence systems — and who sets these goals?
  • The risks and inadequacies of anthropomorphizing AI.
  • The critical importance of assuring ongoing human involvement in AI systems.
  • The explainability of AI systems and litigation over the definition of ‘explanation’ in light of EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
