    Election polling is an inexact science. If you've been paying attention to American politics at all over the past year or two, you don't need us to tell you that. But what if instead of asking voters their opinions on the candidates or the issues you took a different approach, one that involves artificial intelligence... and cars. Joining us for this edition of the AI podcast is Timnit Gebru, a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research in New York and a newly minted PhD from the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Timnit is co-author of a paper titled "Using Deep learning and Street View to Estimate the Demographic Makeup of Neighborhoods Across the United States."
