Episode 108 – The Rise of AI

In this episode, host Jeff Karoub from Michigan News chats with a panel of professors from Michigan Ross and the Ford School of Public Policy on the history, policy, and everyday implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The group discusses the history of AI and its impact on consumers from a personal and professional perspective.
