This is a pre-recorded show, calls will not be taken.

For some, artificial intelligence conjures up images of The Terminator or West World. Others see great promise in AI.  Our panel discusses what is technologically possible today. They also forecast the potential power of AI in fields such as medicine and education, but also the potential dangers—from promoting biased or false information, to ethical concerns.

Recorded live at the Frontier in Brunswick.
