Artificial UNIntelligence

Our collective enthusiasm for applying computer technology to every aspect of life has resulted in a tremendous amount of poorly designed systems. We are so eager to do everything digitally—hiring, driving, paying bills, even choosing romantic partners—that we have stopped demanding that our technology actually work. The Talk wants to remind us that there are fundamental limits to what we can (and should) do with technology. The Talk offers a guide to understanding the inner workings and outer limits of technology—and issues a warning that we should never assume that computers always get things right.
Making a case against technochauvinism—the belief that technology is always the solution— the Talk argues that it’s just not true that social problems would inevitably retreat before a digitally enabled Utopia. To prove that point, the Talk undertakes a series of adventures in computer programming. This Talk tells us, we can make better choices about what we should do with it to make the world better for everyone.
