He was also the Chairman of Santa Fe Institute, where he was working in the scientific study of consciousness and evolutionary artificial intelligence.

Kylie Stedman Gomes ,

Insightful, hopeful & human

Discovered this podcast a couple of months ago and have been bingeing ever since. Euvie and Mike manage to find outstanding guests, ask them insightful questions, come up with brilliant ideas of their own ... I couldn't ask for better brainfood or source for continued research. Thank you both. I've already lost count of how many people I've told about your wonderful podcast. :)

A most revel ant pool of inspiration information

The future thinkers podcast is an awesome listen as both Euvie and Mike address diverse aspects of the frontier of humanity that we need to explore in order to evolve from where we are stagnant in perspective, technology and the paths we walk. Mike and Euvie are amazing authentic people who have made an effort to live a life congruent with their interests, potential and inherent nature. Thanks guys for bringing a fresh voice to the surface. I look forward to the future episodes. :)
