Veteran CNET editor and on-air talent Molly Wood recently joined The New York Times as Deputy Technology Editor in the San Francisco bureau.   This week in New York, she was on stage, unveiling her new weekly show on consumer called “Machine Learning” to several hundred attendees at the Times NewFront event.

We spoke with her there about the new show and her approach to tech TV which she says needs value production elements.  She says tech video should come “out of the basement and the cubicle” to the real world.
