32. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is most often discussed in the environmental world as a sustainability solution capturing invasive starfish and detecting the sound of illegal loggers.

With special guest Dr. Peter Dauvergne: Professor of International Relations at the University of British Columbia and author of AI in the Wild: Sustainability in the Age of Artificial Intelligence.
