Hearsay Culture is pleased to welcome back Brooklyn Law School Professor Frank Pasquale for the second interview of 2021. Frank has authored New Law of Robotics: Defending Human Expertise in the Age of AI. As Frank explains on the show, robots taking over the world is hardly a foregone conclusion. In fact, itâ€™s unlikely, if we plan their integration thoughtfully so they support humansâ€™ best interests â€“ not replace them! As Frank writes on the dust cover to his book, â€œanother story is possible.â€
Frank is a friend of Hearsay Culture, and we are thrilled to have him back for one of our signature long-form but accessible interviews. A prolific reader as well as writer, we had a wide-ranging discussion about Frankâ€™s current reading, his take on finding a job in an increasingly automated environment, and how to best harness the analytical power of machines. Listen in tomorrow, Friday, January 15, on KZSU-FM Stanfordâ€™s live stream at 8pm pacific! The show will be posted soon thereafter as a podcast. Look for it at hearsayculture.com!
