This week I had the opportunity to interview Cade Metz, New York Times technology correspondent and author of Genius Makers: The Mavericks Who Brought AI to Google, Facebook, and the World. I’ve featured Cade’s writings (at NYT and Wired) many times in this newsletter over the years, so this was a real treat for me!
We dive into the history of AI, how academia drove industry to adopt deep learning, which companies “got it right” and which didn’t, geopolitics and China, Europe’s role on the world stage, semiconductors, AI in science, and more.
I hope you enjoy the listen! Let me know your thoughts.
See you in 2 weeks for the next regular issue of Your guide to AI: March 2021! As always, thanks for hitting forward to a couple of friends 🙏
