What’s Hidden Inside Planets
In this weeks episode we are joined by Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at John Hopkins - Dr Sabine Stanley - to talk planetary science and her new book. We take a tour though the solar system and then get into the numerous surprises that have unfolded with our recent discoveries of exoplanets outside our solar system. We explore what we might find in a stellar backyard, but more importantly we talk about what we yet might learn about the earth and how planetary systems themselves work.
The Cognitive Exoskeleton
In this episode, journalist, technologist and entrepreneur Marshall Kirkpatrick joins hosts Brett and Brian to discuss the way AI might change our lives, thinking and philosophy as a species. Marshall dives deep into the way we are learning to integrate AI into our conscious processes, and where it might be useful, and where it might be contentious. In the midst of arguments about the safety of AI and the role it will play in our society, this is a fascinating debate on how your personal AI might change your world.
The Future of You!
Tracey Follows, the author and podcaster of The Future of You, explains how your digital identity will evolve. Custodial or self-sovereign? Centralized or Web3? Big Brother-style surveillance capitalism or liberty? What do we mean by digital identity when there is no government-issued credential?
Industrial & Real-time AI
In this week’s episode hosts Brett and Katie interview Zuzanna Stamirowska, the CEO and co-founder of a deep tech startup that is working on AI that can unlearn and process new data in real-time. We also dive into industrial level AI and how shipping lanes, Amazon package delivery and autonomous supply chain is likely to be impacted by AI. The smart world will be powered by many different forms of AI.
AI Regulation Goes Mainstream – LIVE!
The hosts of the #1 Futurist Podcast THE FUTURISTS are back to talk emerging Artificial Intelligence regulation from Biden's latest executive order, the UK and EU positions, and China's take on AI. We also discuss Marc Andreessen's TechnoOptimist Manifesto and why the Tech Giants aren't necessarily the best people to be defining AI regulation.
Web 3 Futures
This week we talk to Alex Tapscott about his new book Web 3, then the hosting team (Rob, Brett and Katie) talk about some of the macro changes within the Web3 & Web3D/Spatial computing space with Meta’s new RayBan smart glasses.
