The Outliers Inn – Episode 43 – Artificial Intelligence

Topic: Antlerboy (aka Benjamin Taylor) continues to be plagued by substandard internet, although right in the middle of London and across the street to MI-6, yet can only get ADSL service to his office.  How can that be in 2019?  Broadcasting from home is not possible because Antlerboy is too “afraid” to tell his wife to be quiet as a mouse for an hour whilst we are recording.  Not to be undone, JP laments about his “high-tech house from hell”.  And so it goes…

Our guests are Seth  from Joisey   Seth shares his thoughts on Artificial Intelligence and sets the subject for the rest of the podcast.  He ponders the quality of the data being mined, whether people need all the information available to them – are they now being fed information for the wow factor or is all that time and effort waste?  JP goes on the offensive to challenge the use of AI in the hiring process among other applications.  But the conversation goes on to other introductions of innovation and technologies in general and on a variety of applications – and as experience guides us from the past; the knowns, the known unknowns, and the unkown unknowns.  JP shares the tragedy of “unknown unknowns” of innovation in the early days of high-altitude, long-distance flights – where square windows in the de Havilland Comet resulted in metal fatigue at the corners and caused several fatal crashes.  But this discovery lead to an understanding and that is why all windows in aircraft today have no corners.  In the podcast itself, JP erroneously stated that it was the “Lockeed Constellation”.  We regret the error and are sure it would not have happened if the hosts were AI bots and not live, and fallible, human beings.
