MMH - What’s REALLY Your ”Personal Information?” + Data Modeling Ethics, Doughy Robotics - with Kshitish Nanda, Boaz Salik

April 4, 2022

In this episode of the Monday Mess Haul, Nathan, Kshitish, and Boaz get technical. 

  • The Quick Take: what are the ethical implications of an experimental AI using a publicly-available dataset to identify 40,000 theoretical chemical weapons? 
  • The Big Dig: how much can you actually claim as your own personal information? That's what's up for debate with a recent opinion concerning the language of the California Consumer Protection Act. 
  • The Final Cut: how effective are empirical methods for training task variations in robotics?  

The Mess Haul features a more free-form conversational approach with multiple participants than our more interview-focused style. This format is designed to generate quick takes on a handful of recent topics, facilitating shorter, more opinionated discussion with a number of different perspectives. Each episode of The Mess Haul is (usually) recorded, edited, and released in the same day. 

Today's conversationalists: Nathan Johnson, Kshitish Nanda, Boaz Salik
