A.I.N.E. Podcast

A.I.N.E. is an app exclusive radio drama series about a faulty Human-Robot Hybrid adjusting to life in contemporary Ireland. Although A.I.N.E. appears as a smart and sophisticated 30 year old, the reality is...she’s not the sharpest tool in the box. Can artificial intelligence and Irish society co-exist? Is it all going to end in tears? Tune in every Monday to hear Ireland’s first A.I. bring awkwardness to a new level. A.I.N.E. (Artificial Intelligence Nine Eight) was a joint development between the European Robotics Research Network (ERRN) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). The project was led by Dr. Clive Clayton and based in Madrid, Spain. The ERRN and SFI hope to integrate A.I.’s into modern society as part of the Irish Government’s “robotics strategy”. In doing so, Irish President Michael D. Higgins aims to encourage the country on towards securing a large percentage of a multi-billion Euro industry.
