Research, Tech Ethics and AI Innovation with Bharat Krishna

Bharat Krishna is the Managing Director at The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program), an organization that helps higher ed, research, and government partners foster integrity and professional advancement of their learners. He joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about recent trends in research, tech ethics, generative AI, and more.

We begin by hearing Bharat’s origin story, including stints at McKinsey and Kaplan where he and Mike got to know each other. He then describes the role CITI Program plays in helping educate folks on how best to do research and how to train folks on best practices once they’re established. We hear how this has played out at CITI since Bharat has been there: first in response to Covid and now more recently with a new wave of generative AI that is presenting challenging business cases where ethics and innovation intersect. How do we build guardrails in a rapidly changing technology landscape? And what can we learn from the intelligence of animals or speculative fiction about the future of AI? Listen in to find out.
