Interview with Dr. Vivienne Ming on AI, Augmented Intelligence, Future of Jobs, Education, and What it Means to be Human

Listen Now to Dr. Vivienne Ming 10.24.2017

We met neuroscientist and entrepreneur Dr. Vivienne Ming at TEDx Berkeley this spring, immediately after her talk, loved her approach to life, the universe, and Artificial Intelligence, and it’s taken til now to schedule her for an interview.  But, as we think you’ll find, its been worth the wait.  In this interview, we touch on some of her favorite topics, such as AI, augmented intelligence, future of  education and jobs, the nature of current AIs and how they are evolving, LGBT and emotional literacy, and the future of human/machine intelligence. Big topics, not much time, but hopefully enough to get a few of your neurons firing on these life-changing topics. Enjoy..

Update on Artificial Intelligence with AI researchers Drs. Eliot Handelman, Andie Sigler and Casey X

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 2.21.2017

With all the talk these days about bringing jobs back to America, and Bill Gates talking about taxing robots, we catch up with our favorite Artificial Intelligence researchers from Canada. Drs. Eliot Handelman and Andie Sigler, with their Cartoon Network associate, Casey X, give us an update on their latest thinking about AI.  What do humans do if smart robots are doing all the work?  Eliot suggests our species become more focused on creativity, fostering the divine spark within us, something the robots cannot grasp or conceive of as yet. Andie suggests we see the rise of the machines as an extension rather than of foe of ourselves. The question of jobs and education is broached as well by Mrs. Future, who helps in the elucidatation of these topics with our erudite (and fun) guests. Enjoy!

Future News - Tech Trump Summit, Waymo Google Cars, Chevy Bolts Delivered, AI that Searches the Web, Out of the Body Odyssey of Colonel Terry

Listen Now to Future News 12.13.2016

Lots of interest from our listeners today on electric vs hydrogen cars, after Chevy’s first deliveries of their The new all electric 2017 Chevy Boltall electric Bolt to the Bay Area.  Fascinating topic with one listener sending us a link on a relatively obscure video on Hydrogen powered cars (Thanks Shawn!). 

In the second hour we play a statement from Elon Musk about electric vs hydrogen cars, and discuss a new AI that learns by surfing the web. This triggers a conversation on the nature consciousness itself with caller Colonel Terry, who shares a profound near death experience and why he chose to come back. 

Enjoy!

Update Report on Apple Watch by Barcroft and Musical Artificial Intelligence by Handelman and Sigler.

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 3.10.2015


By now most of us have heard of the Apple Watch, but not from the perspective of our very own MacHeads the Movie star, Taylor Barcroft.  Very excited about the new wrist computer from Apple, Taylor gives us a more detailed look at the device, as well as the other announcements made during Apple’s presentation event this week.

We also catch up with Drs. Eliot Handelman and Andie Sigler and their work on creating a musical AI. With AI in the news of late as potentially dangerous, We ask them to step back a bit contexualize AI in relation to popular culture stories, like the HAL 9000 from 2001, HER, and most recently the South African flick, Chappie, about a police robot that becomes self-aware and trained by criminals.  Eliot and Andie communicate an openness about it all that is very inspired. We also take some great phone calls from the KSCO audience and end up feeling optimistic about the future of our robot overlords.
