All Turtles Podcast Episode 45: Empathetic and responsible AI with Michelle Zhou

Fans of the movie Her will remember “Samantha” as the AI who connected with a human because of her ability to express deep empathy. That’s what Michelle Zhou, cofounder and CEO of Juji, references when explaining what her company aims to do: create empathetic and responsible artificial intelligence agents. By focusing on human-machine symbiosis, Zhou has worked toward creating AI chatbots for different types of use cases, from personalized healthcare to conducting interviews.

From Ari via email:

I’d like to hear All Turtles’ leadership team’s reaction to a quote in the Wired interview of Geoff Hinton: “[There’s a question of whether] regulators should insist that you can explain how your AI system works. I think that would be a complete disaster.”

We want to hear from you
