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.

Most of our Dr. Future Show crew today - L-R Mrs. Future (Sun Lundell), John Monahan, Dr. Future (Al Lundell), Dr. Eliot Handelman, Soon to be Dr. Andie Sigler, Bruce Erickson
