Episode details

In episode 57 of The Gradient Podcast, Andrey Kurenkov speaks to Blair Attard-Frost.

Note: this interview was recorded 8 months ago, and some aspects of Canada’s AI strategy have changed since then. It is still a good overview of AI governance and other topics, however.

Blair is a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information who researches the governance and management of artificial intelligence. More specifically, they are interested in the social construction of intelligence, unintelligence, and artificial intelligence, the relationship between organizational values and AI use, and the political economy, governance, and ethics of AI value chains. They integrate perspectives from service sciences, cognitive sciences, public policy, information management, and queer studies for their research.
