Future News - Streaming Video App Craze, Amazing Aluminum Batteries, Drone Hybrid, Brontosaurus Reboot, UnScruz Burning Man Regional Coming up!

Listen Now to Future News 4.07.2015

In a few weeks, Santa Cruz will be hosting both a major drone show and our Burning Man Regional party.  A perfect opportunity to test out these new apps, Periscope and Meerkat, for streaming live video to your friends and strangers from your iPhone or Android device.  To be fair we’ve had such capability with apps like Livestream and Ustream in the past, but it looks like now is the time for video streaming with big players like Twitter (Periscope) entering the game.  It’ll be interesting to see how it mutates the realms of video and live streaming!

And our first guests this week share with us some info about our local Burning Man regional party, scheduled to happen May 1-3, 2015 at Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.  A three day party embracing many of the sensibilities of the Burning Man festival in Nevada.  If you’ve ever wanted to go to Burning Man or wish to feel the vibe of the event without the hassle of packing and driving long distances and paying a small fortune for you and your gang to attend, consider visiting our regional BM party, sponsored by  Art cars, firedancers, radical art, Burner fashion and creative comraderie galore.  We think you’ll enjoy hearing about the fest on today’s show, and hopefully we’ll see you out there!

What's Next with Artificial Intelligence? What is a musical AI? Is the Singularity really near, or what?

Listen Now to Eliot and Andie 

 To help us with these questions, our guests are Dr. Eliot Handelman and computer scientist Andie Sigler, who are endeavoring to create a breakthrough AI that can compose brilliant music, called “Jack and Jill.” We plan on starting by looking at the brief history of AI, including the Frankenstein story, the HAL 9000 computer from 2001 A Space Odysessy, the movie “AI,” and moving on to how we are making everything smarter, like houses, cars, even cities..
