InspiredMinds Chief Content Officer Vidya Gunapala commented “We are very excited to be joined by Karen, Alex and Kanta. They are world class leaders in their respect- ive fields and we are working on a highly curated programme for the first episode of AI.TV that I am confident our community will love.”
Vidya continued “There is a lot of noise in the industries we serve, a bombardment of free and not always high quality content. AI.TV will provide highly curated, topical discussions with world leaders on the future of humanity that cut through the con- fusing narratives and information overload. Our hosts span the intersection of eth- ics, big technology and science - these discussions can make a radical difference to the future of humanity and this is what AI.TV will provide.”
Sarah Porter, CEO and Founder of InspiredMinds said “We do not shy away from the big conversations, we are creating the worlds first AI omnichannel of first class digi- tal content alongside the world summits in AI and medicine that we are renowned for. The addition of Karen, Kanta and Alex as the hosts of AI.TV is testament to the fact that our aim is to continue to provide our global community with noise slash- ing, exceptional products that provide insight, value and always relevant debates on the future of AI and emerging technology.”
