    Episode #4, Season 4 of Phishy Business: Supercharging the AI Tortoise

    In this episode of Phishy Business, we take a look at AI and cybersecurity. We talk on the fact that the stigma of AI running amok in Terminator-fashion is a myth we must dispel in the face of all the good AI can do in protecting the world - from cyberattacks to helping with climate change. We also talk about the other major challenges that AI can be used to solve globally in the next decade.

    Our special guests are Vilas S. Dahr, President of the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, who was named a young global leader by the World Economic Forum, and our own AI data scientist Elaine Lee. Vilas originally trained as a computer scientist who worked on early AI, also went to law school, and then worked on rule of law in technology, finally moving on to build a few businesses in the private sector. Elaine uses her expertise as a data scientist to help create products that protect users against email cyberthreats and was recently promoted to manage a team of data scientists at Mimecast.

    In ‘Supercharging the AI Tortoise’, we discuss:

    • How optimism is essential to taking control of what we want AI systems to do.
    • The sense of urgency that is needed in this work to protect people today and in the future.
    • Why human oversight of AI systems is crucial to course correct and to remove biases in the algorithms.
    • How diversity is fundamental in creating AI systems.
    • The fact that more needs to be done in relation to how AI can be a force for good, from educating policy makers to more positive media coverage.
    • How AI and data science can be used to created sustainable and scalable progress on the big issues our society faces, such as climate, poverty, and hunger.
    • The reasons why Winnie the Pooh is possibly the greatest modern philosopher of our era.
