Podcast: Neil Jacobstein On Using AI To Build A Better World

Neil Jacobstein podcast

Neil Jacobstein chairs the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Track at Singularity University. In plain English, that means he spends his days researching, writing, and talking about the ways robots and Artificial Intelligence will change human life as we know it. 

In this first ever “mini episode” of our podcast, filmed backstage at an event in DC where Neil was presenting, he talks about why it's not all doom and gloom, how robots will improve healthcare and remove language barriers, and when to expect to see robots actually rolled out as deliverymen, drivers, and more. 

We ask Neil questions like:

  1. In terms of AI, where are we now, and where are we going?
  2. What kinds of robots are we actually going to see become part of our lives in the next ten years?
  3. Which industries have the biggest opportunities stemming from AI and which have potential roadblocks or pitfalls they’re going to need to work through?
  4. What is the biggest misconception about automation?
  5. What technology advances are you most excited about now?

 Plus, we talk to Neil about the ways technology will continue to make life better in the coming years, despite media reports that seem to the contrary. Listen now:
