Show Notes

Have you ever wished you could sit down and have a conversation with one of the top robotics and AI engineers in the world? In this episode of Minds Worth Meeting we do exactly that when Whitney Jennings speaks with former NASA engineer and the current Dean of The Ohio State University's College of Engineering, Dr. Ayanna Howard

In this episode:

  • Ayanna explains that, while buzzy at the moment, artificial intelligence isn’t new. In fact, it’s just data and algorithms. In other words – the basis for all computers.
  • She tells us what makes AI different now is that it’s seeping into areas such as healthcare, jobs and even our civil liberties like never before. “These are the things we need to be careful about,” she says.
  • Dr. Howard delves into who should regulate AI – the industry, the government, or both?
  • Finally, she tells our listeners the most important skill that engineers of the future should start learning today.
