This show is being broadcast live from Brunswick, with an in-person audience, as part of our "Maine Calling On the Road" series.
The White House recently released guidelines for federally backed research on artificial intelligence (AI). Our panel discusses the ethical questions that arise as AI advances—such as the controversial ChatGPT technology—become widely used.
