Genius Makers: Idealists, Big Tech, and AI

The New York Times' Cade Metz in Conversation with Wall Street Journal’s Daniela Hernandez

Before it began to change our world for better or worse, an eclectic group of idealistic academics from across the globe spent decades trying to build artificial intelligence, often in the face of enormous skepticism. As their ideas came of age and began to supercharge everything from talking digital assistants to automated healthcare they were pulled into a world they did not expect… along with the rest of us. In Genius Makers: The Mavericks Who Brought AI to Google, Facebook, and the World, New York Times reporter Cade Metz uncovers the tale behind the hype and the hand-wringing. 

In conversation with Wall Street Journal science reporter Daniela Hernandez, Metz will explore AI  from talking digital assistants to face recognition technology to self-driving cars and robotics, sharing the intimate, surprising, and often dramatic stories of the AI researchers and tech executives from some of the largest companies in the world who are most responsible for introducing AI into our daily lives.
