Notes from the Electronic Cottage 2/16/23: AI Thoughts We Aren’t Hearing

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all around us today, and that is going to be even more true – and more obvious – in the near future. Simply put, AI is going to change the world we live in every day. So who should decide how those changes will happen? It’s a good – and critically important – question that we all would do well to think about, and then make our opinions known.

About the host:
Jim Campbell has a longstanding interest in the intersection of digital technology, law, and public policy and how they affect our daily lives in our increasingly digital world. He has banged around non-commercial radio for decades and, in the little known facts department (that should probably stay that way), he was one of the readers voicing Richard Nixon’s words when NPR broadcast the entire transcript of the Watergate tapes. Like several other current WERU volunteers, he was at the station’s sign-on party on May 1, 1988 and has been a volunteer ever since doing an early stint as a Morning Maine host, and later producing WERU program series including Northern Lights, Conversations on Science and Society, Sound Portrait of the Artist, Selections from the Camden Conference, others that will probably come to him after this is is posted, and, of course, Notes from the Electronic Cottage.
