Mariana Lin, former principal writer for the voice of Apple's Siri, discusses how we can shape a healthier future.

With a background in literature, Mariana Lin's work as a creative and nonfiction writer has appeared in The Mississippi Review, GQ, The Huffington Post, New York Magazine and The Paris Review. However, work as a Creative Director for Apple led to years as a secret, yet very public presence as the principal writer behind the ubiquitous voice of Siri. Now an advocate for more creatives to work in the AI field, joins the renowned technology journalist Bill Thompson in a wide-ranging conversation around what writing for AI has taught her about humanity and how we might be able to shape a better world going forward.
