Peggy Smedley, IoT Industry Expert, Specialty Publishing Media

Peggy begins the show by highlighting the changing relationship between humans and machines. She talks about the increase in autonomous and intelligent systems in the workplace. She encourages a public discussion, which confronts ethical questions. She brings up the IEEE, which recommends a set of principles when implementing AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning into a worksite. Tech giants show support for ethical conversations, but Peggy asks: how much is their concern for show, and how much of their support sincere?
