In this episode, we speak with Luke Stark. He’s a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research Montreal and a Historian of Computing and Artificial Intelligence. He looks at the ways in which Humans interact with machines, and analyzes how technologies shape our feelings and emotions. We ask him about emojis and other reaction icons, we get his view on the Disney-Pixar movie “Inside Out”, and we talk about facial recognition, a set of technologies that constitute, in his view, “the plutonium of AI”.
