Empathy in AI with Rob Walker - TWiML Talk #248
Today weâ€™re joined by Rob Walker, Vice President of Decision Management at Pegasystems. Rob joined us back in episode 127 to discuss â€œHyperpersonalizing the customer experience.â€ Today, heâ€™s back for a discussion about the role of empathy in AI systems. In our conversation, we dig into the role empathy plays in consumer-facing human-AI interactions, the differences between empathy and ethics, and a few examples of ways empathy should be considered when building enterprise AI systems. What do you think? Should empathy be a consideration in AI systems? If so, do any examples jump out for you of where and how it should be applied? Iâ€™d love to hear your thoughts on the topic! Feel free to shoot me a tweet at @samcharrington or leave a comment on the show notes page with your thoughts. Thanks to PegasystemsÂ for sponsoring today's show!

Dissecting the Controversy around OpenAI's New Language Model - TWiML Talk #234
If youâ€™re listening to this podcast, youâ€™ve likely seen some of the press coverage and discussion surrounding the release, or lack thereof, of OpenAIâ€™s new GPT-2 Language Model. The announcement caused quite a stir, with reactions spanning confusion, frustration, concern, and many points in between. Several days later, many open questions remained about the model and the way the release was handled. Seeing the continued robust discourse, and wanting to offer the community a forum for exploring this topic with more nuance than Twitterâ€™s 280 characters allow, we convened the inaugural â€œTWiML Liveâ€ panel. I was joined on the panel by Amanda Askell and Miles Brundage of OpenAI, Anima Anandkumar of NVIDIA and CalTech, Robert Munro of Lilt, and Stephen Merity, the latter being some of the most outspoken voices in the online discussion of this issue. Our discussion thoroughly explored the many issues surrounding the GPT-2 release controversy. We cover the basics like what language models are and why theyâ€™re important, and why this announcement caused such a stir, and dig deep into why the lack of a full release of the model raised concerns for so many. The discussion initially aired via Youtube Live and weâ€™re happy to share it with you via the podcast as well. To be clear, both the panel discussion and live stream format were a bit of an experiment for us and weâ€™d love to hear your thoughts on it. Would you like to see, or hear, more of these TWiML Live conversations? If so, what issues would you like us to take on? If you have feedback for us on the format or if youâ€™d like to join the discussion around OpenAIâ€™s GPT-2 model, head to the show notes page for this show at twimlai.com/talk/234 and leave us a comment.
