Yeah Nah Pasaran! #203 w Alex Hanna on AI hype, surveillance, war & work : April 18, 2024

Last week’s show was a repeat of our September 2023 interview with Emily M Bender. This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Alex Hanna [X/Twitter], Director of Research at the Distributed AI Research Institute (DAIR) and co-host, with Emily, of the Mystery AI Hype Theater 3000 podcast. Emily and Alex are also the co-authors of the forthcoming title The AI Con (Harper Books, 2025).

We spoke to Alex about some of her experiences working in the tech industry (and the situation of tech workers generally), AI hype, the use of AI in Israel’s war on Gaza (see : ‘Lavender’: The AI Machine directing Israel’s bombing spree in Gaza, Yuval Abraham, +972, April 6, 2023), facial recognition technologies, mapping protests and more.
