For Episode 05 of the Civic Hacker Podcast, “AI for Good”, we are featuring a conversation with Friederike Schüür to talk about how we can use data and AI for good, AI capabilities and ethics considerations, and some simple concepts that can help you make a bigger impact in your civic and social good projects. At the time of this recording, Friederike was a data scientist with the applied machine learning research firm, Fast Forward Labs. In the video clip above, she walks us through some of the prototypes they built, and discusses what these apps reveal about the underlying data and algorithms.
