My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… MusicBrainz, which is not an AI project, but which could be used to feed data to many exciting new projects.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… could create custom documentaries on any topic. The app could use web-crawling techniques to gather information about the topic, and use AI to create the voice-over narration.

My worst AI nightmare is… that new technologies will become so appealing to the general public that they will be willing to trade off their privacy and rights to have access to it.

The future of AI needs… ethicians.
