Are you curious how artificial intelligence will change the wines you drink? What’s the difference between AI-based technology and existing automated machines? Will AI eventually replace most people working in the vineyard?
In this episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, I'm chatting with Dina Blikshteyn, a lawyer who specializes in how artificial intelligence and machine learning is changing the wine world.

What was Dina’s first memory of drinking wine as a poor college student?
What’s the difference between automation and artificial intelligence?
How is AI improving grape growing and winemaking systems?
What’s the difference between newer AI-enabled machines and existing automated farming machines?
Which types of technology are used with AI in the wine industry?
Is there a risk of AI replacing human intervention in vineyards?
Who owns the data associated with machine learning, and what are the risks with data privacy?
What are the legal implications around the fair use of data obtained from the internet for AI training?
I was fascinated to learn how artificial intelligence will change the wines you drink. AI can determine whether the grapes are getting enough water in the growing stage and other factors to optimize ripeness and avoid disease. That, in turn, will make for better quality wine related to those factors.
Dina’s clarification of the difference between AI-based technology and existing automated machines was helpful. AI is a subset of automation that involves training models on data. It eventually makes new decisions and outputs, whereas traditional automation sticks to the rules you set for it.
I’m glad to hear that AI will not eventually replace most people working in the vineyard. Dina makes a great analogy that when the calculator was invented, we still needed to know how to do math. It's the same thing with AI; it’s just a tool.
