Thank you for joining me again on Beyond the Big Screen. I am really excited to be joined by author Craig w Stanfield to talk about all things artificial intelligence, dystopian futures, and defiance in a heavily controlled world. Uh, before we get started, uh, Craig, can you tell us a bit about your background and what made you want to write, uh, fiction, particularly science fiction?
Okay, well first of all, in terms of my background, I've got a long history of, uh, work as a technologist, as a software entrepreneur. Got a doctorate in computer science, artificial intelligence in the 1980s. I've had a long career in the technology industry, primarily, you know, starting out with artificial intelligence and then moving forward into enterprise computing where I've worked on technology that is used to collect and analyze data for marketing purposes for a lot of [00:02:00] very, very big companies that are, uh, household names around the country.
And so I've got a lot of insight into both what you can do using AI to. Make decisions automatically. And collect the data that Theis need for that, for that, uh, decision making. And then to affect change in the world, uh, by reaching out into the, uh, telephone network. So there's, there's parts of the world where technology that I've built, uh, affects what shows up on people's cell phones in a number of countries, uh, where.
