AI’s shady links to cryptocurrency

May 19, 2023

In this episode I’m joined by Kyle Gibson, a senior staff researcher and writer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Open Learning initiative.

I’ve been following Kyle on Twitter for years, where he has been a consistently funny and well-informed critic of the crazy world of cryptocurrency.

Today he joins the podcast to talk about another tech utopia that’s in the headlines: artificial intelligence or ‘AI’.

Are the claims made for AI overblown? How are AI models developed? What human inputs are required? Who funds AI? What’s the link between AI and cryptocurrency? Can cryptocurrency fix AI? And what’s AI got to do with geopolitics?

Listen in for the next thirty minutes to hear more.
