AI, AI, AI, it’s all we hear about! It clutters news headlines, company websites, articles, bios and everywhere in between. But with all this recent advancement and attention with artificial intelligence, it begs the question, what *is* AI? What is a neural network? And why is AI the thing that everyone is talking about?   

So in this episode of the Luminexus podcast we connect the dots between the technical terms in research papers, and the buzz in the media, to bring to our listeners a comprehensible introduction to AI. We sit down and talk with Meryam Al-Waadh, senior analytical lead at Google and AI specialist, to break down what AI is, how it works and why it is important.   

And to tie a finishing bow on this episode, we dip our toe into the endless black vortex of the ethical debate of artificial intelligence, and things both creators and consumers must keep in mind as we move forward in a society where humans and machines become more and more similar.
