My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… “Beautiful the World”, Australian’s winning entry in the first ever Eurovision-inspired AI Song Contest.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… was the best ever personal assistant.

My worst AI nightmare is… killer robots. Not Terminator, but dumb, stupid killer robots. Especially in the hands of terrorists and despots.

The future of AI needs… many voices.
