For the Public - The RadioAI Guide   - HOW TO USE THIS SITE radio ai logo
Welcome to RADIO AI, a non-commercial public resource for learning about Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI is much more than machine learning.  It includes philosophies of life, thinking and knowledge. It also includes human science, psychology and computational models about human thought, memory, vision, speech, touch and smell and movement. AI also includes ethics, computer programming, and  Spock (logic).  It can be about engineering - building a real system or it can be about building a model of consciousness.   Right now as you read this, there are many people working on AI.  Some of them are famous.  And some of them you have never heard of.  But they're all doing something interesting!   Let's hear what some of them have to say.      

On the site you will find short (5-10 minute) audio tracks for all sorts of topics relating to AI.    Most of the people talking here have plenty of elbow grease from working on AI for quite a long time.  Skip around or listen to them all. You'll hear from people who work on adventurous AI - Robots that explore the sea, the south pole or outerspace.   But also people who work on software agents  that help people in some way (think Siri, Echo, etc.) , or who explore basic questions like, what is AI?   What does it mean to program AI or debug AI? Other talks are from speakers who might not be working on AI but they care a lot about the world and have  something important to say about AI that might be curious or helpful to you. What you hear is not from a publicist, or a news journalist, but from the people who have worked and do work on AI for many years. They have won awards, developed robots, but mostly they care about the world. And that's why we built this site.  

If you work on AI and would like to share some of your wisdom with the world please get in touch with us at cmason@radioai.net or cindymason@media.mit.edu
