Podcast: Artificial Intelligence and capitalism

June 27, 2023

Green Left’s Jacob Andrewartha spoke to Aishik Saha, an activist with All India Students Association and a researcher on digital and algorithmic labour, about the development of artificial intelligence under capitalism.

Is it an apocalyptic existential threat, as presented by many CEOs and tech “leaders”, or does it underscore existing threats to the weakest sections of the working class?

Saha will be speaking at a session on “‘Artificial intelligence’, capitalism and liberation” at Ecosocialism 2023: A World Beyond Capitalism conference, July 1-2, in Naarm/Melbourne.

We acknowledge this was produced on stolen First Nations land. We express our solidarity with ongoing struggles for justice for First Nations people and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
