Pint of Science on Smash Notes

Pint of Science podcast.

December 28, 2019

Welcome to the Pint Of Science podcast. Every Monday, we meet scientists in pubs around the country to find out about their lives, their universe, and everything. From the love lives of fruit flies to the science behind the love lives of humans, the goings on deep within the Earth, and everything in between!

We are affiliated with Pint of Science 2019, the UK's (and probably the world's) largest sci-comm festival. Find out more at www.pintofscience.com.

DeepMind push the boundaries of AI, developing programs that can learn to solve a complex problem without needing to be taught how. Dr Raia explains how working with AI is like working with a clever and slightly mischievous child.
