The Ask AI interview with Andrey Kurenkov of Skynet Today


Special thanks to Microsoft Canada and Cinchy for sponsoring the third series of the Ask AI podcast and supporting greater awareness of artificial intelligence in Canada. All of our episodes and 100s of AI profiles are also available from our chatbot, generously sponsored by Toronto’s Ada Support.

The media is having a field day with stories, both good and bad, about artificial intelligence and its potential impact on humanity.


But who's keeping the coverage honest?

This episode of the Ask AI podcast features an interview with Andrey Kurenkov, founder of the Skynet Today blog. Tune in to hear about Skynet Today's work to dispel the misunderstandings within AI.


“It’s very likely to me that by the end of the 2020 decade we will see robots out there in society, like self driving cars, like delivery robots, like drones delivering our Amazon packages.”
