In the first half, we talk with Lucy Suchman, a professor and expert on human computer interaction & warfare about a recent report commissioned by the United States Government about artificial intelligence and national security. We look at some of the unexamined premises for the report.

In the second half, we listen to a panel discussion hosted by Betalab on how to build a better social media future featuring David Ryan Polgar, a Responsible Tech advocate and founder of All Tech Is Human; Nicole Chi, a civic technologist and product manager who has worked at the intersection of product, policy, and public interest; Rana Sarkar, who was appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as Consul General of Canada in San Francisco & Silicon Valley in 2017; and moderator Yaël Eisenstat, Researcher-in-Residence at Betalab and now a Future of Democracy Fellow at Berggruen Institute.
