On the Cruelty of Computational Reasoning
Did I say I was done doing interviews? (Lies, vicious lies.) I just had a great Skype call with Alexander Hogan over at Etic Lab and we talked a lot about power and privilege as it relates to the automated technologies (bots included). Alex has a unique perspective on this, and Etic Labs does some amazing work, using automated technologies to help the more vulnerable members of society.
To learn a bit more about this, I encourage you to check out Alex's essay On the Cruelty of Computational Reasoning and otherwise surf around their site some. I'm really looking forward to interviewing him and folding his great stories into Familiar Shapes!
