An interview with Janelle Shane, the creator of aiweirdness.com and author of 'You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How AI Works and Why It’s Making the World a Weirder Place'.
Janelle Shane works as a research scientist in Colorado, where she makes computer-controlled holograms for studying the brain, and other light-steering devices. She is also a self-described A. I. Humorist - on aiweirdness.com, she writes about AI and the sometimes hilarious, sometimes unsettling ways that algorithms get things wrong. Her work has also been featured in the New York Times, The Atlantic, WIRED, Popular Science, and more, AND she has also given the TED talk “The danger of AI is weirder than you think” in 2019.
Her book, “You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How AI Works and Why It’s Making the World a Weirder Place” uses cartoons and humorous pop-culture experiments to look inside the minds of the algorithms that run our world, making artificial intelligence and machine learning both accessible and entertaining.
