Ep3 audio

Welcome back to Between Two Bots. This is the podcast Dan Turchin and I discuss the future of humanity, society, and government, as seen through the lens of your data, your privacy and the ethics of AI. Today’s guest is Dr. Marcell Vollmer, Partner and Director at BCG and advisor to C-Level Executives & Executive Teams on the full range of digital transformation.

Every week, we test the boundaries between AI ethics, data and ways humans coexist with machines. Tune in each week to learn from the experts who are on the frontlines defining how will work and live for the next century.

We sit today really at the confluence of what I'd call three trends. More automated decisions are being made on our behalf. They have a greater impact on our lives, and frustratingly, there's less transparency than ever, about what goes into the making of those decisions.
