The first part of a multi-part conversation with research scientist Nathan McDonald, where we discuss statements and predictions of the future that were given to us in 2017 from physicist and futurist Dr. Michio Kaku. In this episode we discuss the future and ethics of AI – getting into Asimov’s 3 rules of robotics – nanotech and biotech. We go into some fun tangents (the math of Hari Seldon’s psychohistory in the “Foundation” series, the width and breadth of Isaac Asimov’s interests as a writer), culminating in the ethics of nanotech, biotech, and artificial intelligence.
