In episode two, we diving into the fast-moving world of chatbots. Will this talkative new technology bring humans closer together or pull us further apart? We grab a pint with Ben Tossell, co-founder of Botlist and Community Lead at Product Hunt, and speak with Eugene Bann, founder and CTO at San Franciso-based mental health chatbot-builders, X2AI. We’re also attempting a (world first?) interview with Microsoft’s latest artificial intelligence chatbot, Zo.
In our first episode, we’re looking at how technology can be used by businesses to do real good in the world, simply by encouraging subtle changes to customer behaviour. We speak to James Wood about our charity initiative, Lunchbox, that’s feeding schoolchildren in the developing world. He discusses how much responsibility he thinks brands and businesses should take for solving social and environmental problems in today’s world. We’re also interviewing Nikki Maksimovic, Country Manager for the UK at the Berlin-based search engine, Ecosia. They’ve found a way to use internet advertising to plant trees.
