For the authors/speakers
HI! Welcome! Thank you so much for joining us at RADIO
RADIO AI VISION
Our goal is provide a place where the public can learn about AI and
issues related to AI from experts and thoughtful people. In a
we hope to give AI literacy to the public because much of the
world is talking about AI. But there is a lot
of fear and it seems many people talking about AI are not sure what
Some of you have insight not only into how to talk about AI to the
public, but into
the social, economic, and other related issues that a society with
AI should consider.
RADIO AI SPEAKERS
For experts, we invite you to speak about the issues you care
about the most, that you think the
public should know. For example, theologican and physicist
author Andrew Porter has been
talking about "Being Human". If you are an AI
researcher or engineer, we hope you will share
some insights into the area of AI you work with. For
example, I am making a short
lecture on software agents and another one on an AI application I
worked on at NASA
involving robotic telescopes.
We hope you will have fun with this… but also to give all of
you an opportunity to talk
about what it is you care deeply about and that you feel could help
the public in some way
to adapt to a world where AI technology continues to expand.
It is a joyful thing to do work we love,
and most of us are doing things that are very cool, insightful,
genius. Or maybe, you have
been lucky enough to have had the resources and time to have read
from many different fields
and can connect the dots in a way no one else sees.
Somehow we want to convey this
knowledge to the public.
-Audience: Imagine if you will, the people who are listening.
Think of them as smart, but maybe not so technical, or
are technical, but who don’t work in our field!
-Relax: One trick I find puts me at ease is to think of something
happy before you start talking… this will come through
as you talk. But also I practiced a few times, and wrote
down and had them sitting along side me, in case I got distracted or
digressed. Some people can talk spontaneously, and
others will need notes. Its all good.
I want to say thank you again for this service.
-Background noise - try to talk where there is as much quiet as you
-Sound effects - feel free to include sounds that relate to what
or if there is music that inspires you etc.
-Clock - Use a watch or your computer to keep track of how long you
go... try to go at least 3 minutes or so… if you want to
talk a lot, let’s make it a part I, Part II, etc. with about 10
minutes each segment
-Equipment - Feel free to use whatever is easiest. I
used a macbook pro laptop.
It seems to have worked pretty good. The main thing was not to
be in a noisy
background like a cafe or near other people talking in the
-Test - might be good if you haven’t done much audio before to test
with some short sentences.. to see if you need to talk
louder, closer, etc.
You’ll want to keep your mouth near the mike in most
instances… or test and see
how far you can move… sometimes, turning your head away from the
mike can make
the volume go down…
-Buzzwords - pay attention if you have some new concepts to explain
the words mean… e.g. if you say sensors - what kind, or
if you say
interface - is it a mouse, a joystick, a screen, a headset,
etc. try to paint
a picture with words if you can….
-Music/Sound effects - since this is audio, feel free if you like to
use sounds besides your voice... background music is fine,
as long as it doesn't drown out your voice, or some other noises...
-Please send along your audio file to
firstname.lastname@example.org and any or all of the
-Synopsis- if you want to have 1-2 sentences to describe the audio
lecture, feel free to add that
when you send the file.
-Intro/Close: I'll add an introduction for you in
the beginning, if you have some facts about yourself you'd
like to include by all means, include them in the submission
Any Questions? Feel free to get in touch if you have any
questions or ideas.
We hope you have fun with this.
QUESTIONS THAT WILL HELP GET THE TALK GOING
