RECOMMENDED: Tech Won’t Save Us: Don’t Fall for the AI Hype with Timnit Gebru

Explore the latest episode of Tech Won’t Save Us, a podcast that “examine[s] the tech industry, its big promises, and the people behind them. Tech Won’t Save Us challenges the notion that tech alone can drive our world forward by showing that separating tech from politics has consequences for us all, especially the most vulnerable.”

In this recent episode, “Don’t Fall for the AI Hype,” host Paris Marx interviews Timnit Gebru, founder and executive director of the Distributed AI Research Institute (DAIR), about artificial intelligence and the buzz around ChatGPT. Their conversation focuses on “the misleading framings of artificial intelligence, her experience of getting fired by Google in a very public way, and why we need to avoid getting distracted by all the hype around ChatGPT and AI image tools.”

This episode will likely be of interest to digital humanities and library folks who are exploring the potential impacts — positive and negative — of ChatGPT and other AI tools for digital pedagogy.
