At the 2016 Code Conference, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos talked with The Verge's Walt Mossberg about the "gigantic" potential of artificial intelligence to change everything from shopping to self-driving cars. Here's the full video of the interview.

And via our podcast Recode Replay, here is the full audio of Bezos's appearance:

Bezos also discussed his purchase of the Washington Post in 2013, which he says is transforming from a local to a global institution. He explained why he opposes both Peter Thiel's campaign against Gawker Media and Donald Trump's attempts to "freeze or chill" press scrutiny.

Plus: Bezos's other company, Blue Origin, is trying to lower the cost of entrepreneurship in space.
