Episode 39: Lithuania's Linas Linkevičius — Artificial Intelligence — Naughty MEPs

Russia, artificial intelligence and MEPs who are famous for the wrong reasons all feature in this week’s episode.

Host Ryan Heath talks to the foreign minister of Lithuania, Linas Linkevičius, about how the EU should handle Moscow, following Vladimir Putin’s re-election and the Salisbury nerve agent attack.

Ryan also chats with Janosch Delcker, POLITICO’s recently appointed AI correspondent. The first such correspondent at a major media outlet, Janosch talks about POLITICO’s AI Summit and how artificial intelligence and big data will change the world.
