Navneet Alang: AI in Debate

What is intelligence? Does it require ethical research, group think, or just a well-programmed code? Today, intelligence has an added layer of data and computing power, and AI, a still-emerging technology, poses both opportunities and risks. Toronto Star tech journalist, Navneet Alang, talks about AI’s narrative of progress, its limits, and the need for humans—not just technology—to change.

Navneet Alang spoke at The Walrus Talks Artificial Intelligence in Toronto, Ontario, on June 28, 2023. To listen to more of the speakers from this event, listen to the AI for Social Good podcast on your favourite podcast platform.
