Future News - AI Bixby Debuts, Mark Cuban and Bill Gates on Robots, Jobs, and Taxes, Silicon Valley's Upcoming Cinequest Film & VR Festival, Dr. Bruce Damer's first-hand report on NASA's choice for the next Mars Rover

Listen Now to Future News 2.21.2017

Lots of great news this week, from a new AI on Samsung gear to getting the robots to pay taxes.  If that idea takes off, you can thank Bill Gates for that!  For today’s show we spoke with Kendall Stevens, about the upcoming Cinequest Film and VR Festival in Silcon Valley next week.  We are particularly curious about how cinematic storytellers will be using the new medium of VR and 360 video, and asked Kendall to tell us a bit about the productions they will be featuring. 

We finish up the news segment of our show with a fresh report from Dr. Bruce Damer on his presentation to a gathering of 260 scientists at the Jet Propulsion Labs last week, deciding where the next Martian rover will land to look for signs of life. Bruce was happy to report that his team’s choice of Gusev Crater is one of the final three choices that the NASA scientists as a whole have chosen, originally from a field of over 30 landing sites. If his site wins, they will be looking for life in an old Martian hot springs, back when it was warm.  Enjoy!

Not Politics as Usual with Dr. Bruce Damer on Updating the "Sourcecode" with a Constitutional Convention

Listen Now to Dr. Bruce Damer and a new Constitutional Convention

What a crazy election cycle we’ve all had to endure!  Now that it is behind us, how might we do it better in the future? To discuss the possibilities, our guest is Dr. Bruce Damer, who floats the idea of a modern day Constitutional Convention, for updating our country’s ‘souce code’ to modern times. And given this was Election day, we fielded some rather poignant phone calls for this discussion, including some great comments from Mrs. Future. Enjoy!

Interview with Dr. Bruce Damer on Space Project Shepherd and Origins of Biological Life

Listen Now to Dr. Bruce Damer

Dr. Bruce Damer, a Canadian-American multi-disciplinary scientist researching the question of origin of life, the incapsulation, capture, and analysis of icy asteroids along with other  solar system ‘planetesimals’, shares his latest projects, research, and speculations with us.

Did life originate on Earth?  Is Asteroid exploration more our future than colonizing Mars? Should we spread our seed, and not just our species, throughout our solar system? Can life be created from scratch?  

Dr. Bruce takes us from the inner realms of early life on Earth to the outer boundaries of spreading life of all kinds throughout the solar system. 

Enjoy the show!
