In Machines We Trust

Podcast series launched in 2020 and produced by MIT Technology Review. This award-winning podcast about the automation of everything thoughtfully examines the far-reaching impact of artificial intelligence on our daily lives. Hosted by Jennifer Strong, the series explores the rise of AI through the voices of people reckoning with the power of the technology, and by taking listeners up close with the inventors and founders whose ambitions are fueling the development of new forms of AI, with consequences we’re only just beginning to understand.
