This episode is on assistive technology. All technology is assistive and the range of products and services available now for disabled people is pretty amazing. Alice talks with Lateef McLeod and Jessie Lorenz, two people from the SF Bay Area disability community. Lateef and Jessie share about their usage of assistive technology, how it impacts their lives, and the current barriers disabled people still face accessing assistive technology.
Peter heads to a Microsoft research centre to look at the latest in assistive technology.
The lives of blind and visually-impaired people are being transformed by technology. But where are the changes heading? Peter White is joined by YouTuber Lucy Edwards as they head to a Microsoft research centre, to get her take on life as a digital native. As a blind person, what does she want from the technology that’s around the corner?
Microsoft’s "Senior Technology Evangelist" Hector Minto explains his job title - and takes Peter and Lucy through some of the tools of their "Seeing AI" app. He addresses their questions about the current state of technology which is for, and increasingly designed by, the blind and visually impaired.
We also hear from Saqib Shaikh, who was a driving force behind Microsoft’s approach to technology for the blind and VI and from Dave Williams, who trains people to use assistive technology.
The web is changing fast. Are accessibility standards keeping pace? What should developers of single page apps do to help users of assistive technologies? How do we anticipate assistive technologies developing in future? To what extent do new web technologies such as canvas and the web audio API either help or hinder those with accessibility needs? How much can we afford to invest in accessibility?

Are we nearing the singularity, the point where philosophers say the computer programs we create will be smarter than us?
Artificial intelligence is all around us. In phones, in cars, in our homes. Voice recognition systems, predicative algorithms, GPS. Sometimes they may not work very well, but they are improving all the time, you might even say they are learning.
Come on an entertaining journey through the ethics of artificial intelligence or AI, the science behind intelligent computer programs and robotics. Some software engineers think about the philosophy of the artificial intelligence they are creating, others really don’t care.
In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with computer scientist Stuart Russell about the challenge of building artificial intelligence that is compatible with human well-being.

It sounds like science fiction: a computer many times smarter than any human being wiping out civilization. But the existential risks associated with thinking machines is an increasingly hot top topic in Silicon Valley and high-tech hubs everywhere. Renowned artificial intelligence expert Nick Bostrom thinks the dangers are real, and the sooner we take them seriously the more likely we can prevent a super intelligent machine from becoming humankind’s last invention.

Eric tells us accessibility shouldn’t be just technical curiosity. It’s about people.
What is artificial intelligence? Could unintended consequences arise from increased use of this technology? How will the role of humans change with AI? How will AI evolve in the next 10 years?
In this episode, Haley interviews leading Complex Systems Scientist, Professor of Computer Science at Portland State University, and external professor at the Santa Fe Institute, Melanie Mitchell. Professor Mitchell answers many profound questions about the field of artificial intelligence and gives specific examples of how this technology is being used today. She also provides some insights to help us navigate our relationship with AI as it becomes more popular in the coming years.
John McCarthy, the computer scientist who coined the term "artificial intelligence" in 1955, died Monday at age 84. Weekend Edition’s math guy Keith Devlin has this remembrance.
