Here’s a Terrific Video Featuring Myth of AI Author Erik Larson

Larson, an AI professional, explains why the popular noise we hear about AI “taking over” is hype

I’ve been reviewing philosopher and programmer Erik Larson’s The Myth of Artificial Intelligence. See my earlier posts, hereherehereherehere, and here.

Here’s a terrific video interview that Larson did with Academic Influence. It was done before his book was released and gives a succinct summary of the book. It’s short (15 minutes, compared to the hour-long interview with Brookings described in my previous post).

For not only the full video of this interview with Larson but also a transcript of it, go to the Academic Influence website here.

For a nice period-piece video on Joseph Weizenbaum’s ELIZA program, check out this YouTube video:
