Many of us may not realize that artificial intelligence, or AI systems, are increasingly being used to make decisions that affect your everyday life, from insurance to hiring. While AI has been a popular buzzword over the last few years, it is worth asking what it is and even more, what it is actually capable of.

Looks Like New: What is artificial intelligence capable of? KGNU
CU Boulder’s MEDLab’s radio show and podcast, Looks Like New, asks old questions about new tech.
Each month, Looks Like New team speaks with people who work with technology in ways that challenge conventional narratives and dominant power structures. The name comes from the phrase “a philosophy so old that it looks like new,” repeated throughout the works of Peter Maurin, the French agrarian poet and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.
Looks Like New airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m., or by podcast on iTunes.
