This week, the BBVA Mind Bank podcast features a special one-off interview between two people who firmly believe artificial intelligence has the potential to change the world for the better.
It features BBVA Chairman, Carlos Torres Vila, in conversation with world renowned artificial intelligence expert, and founder and CEO of Sinovation Ventures, Dr Kai-Fu Lee.
BBVA and Sinovation share a deep interest in artificial intelligence, with a particular interest in how the technology can be used to positively impact the way people live and work.
Over the course of 35 or so minutes, the pair debate where the technology is now, the differences between how AI is being developed in China versus the West, the importance data will play in AI reaching its full potential, and where the future may lie for machine learning technologies.
They also touch on topics include the value of data, how businesses are using that data and where and how privacy of data should be managed.
The podcast was taped on Monday February 17th, at the BBVA Foundation Headquarters in Madrid.
