S2E6 – Where in the World Is James Vacca?

How do we want extended intelligence to be, and who will watch over that? In this final episode, we talk about a man named James Vacca—a former New York City Councilmember and the first person to ever try to answer these questions with legislation. We examine Vacca’s proposed reforms for autonom-ish systems used in New York, investigate the outcomes of his proposal, and discuss what this means for the future.

S2E1 – Let’s Talk About AI, Baby

Predictive autonom-ish tools are used in almost every aspect of our lives, from determining what movie to recommend—to deciding who should go to jail and for how long. Ultimately, they are designed with the intended purpose of making our lives better and easier. But what happens when they backfire?
