DeepMind: The Podcast

What is artificial intelligence? Is it safe? How can it impact our lives? Mathematician and broadcaster Hannah Fry uncovers the extraordinary ways AI is transforming our world.

Season 1

World-class scientists and thinkers—many speaking publicly for the first time—explain the foundations of AI. They join Hannah as she explores the challenges the field wrestles with, and dives into research that’s led to breakthroughs like AlphaGo and AlphaFold.

In Season 2, I've gone back inside the lab... and, I must say, I've seen some pretty extraordinary things.
