We're back with a brand new episode of DevNews. This week, we explore whether or not the AI regulations and systems happening in cities around the world are actually up to snuff — among other topics! I hope you listen and let us know what you think.
S8:E2 - AI Regulation In Different Cities, A GitHub Snafu, and Crypto-Miners Wreck a Town’s Power
As a refresher, DevNews is the news show for developers by developers. Each season, our hosts cover the latest in the world of tech, and speak with diverse guests from a variety of backgrounds to dig deep into meaty topics such as security, the pros and cons of outsourcing your authentication, and the latest bugs and hacks.
In this episode, we talk about how a developer irreversibly lost a community of 54-thousand stars and watchers built up over the past 10 years on GitHub, and how unregulated crypto-mining wrecked the power of an entire New York town. Then we speak with Vidushi Marda, senior program officer at Article 19, where she leads the research and engagement on the human rights implications of machine learning, to get her perspective on the Artificial Intelligence regulations and systems different cities around the world are implementing.
