Artificial Intelligence in Industry with Dan Faggella

Prof Nick Bostrom is widely respected as the premier academic thinker on topics related to strong artificial intelligence, transhumanism, and existential risks. His talks, books, and articles cover all of these topics, and his vocation involves bringing attention and critical thought to these most pressing human issues.

He is founder and director of the Future of Huminity Institute at Oxford, and author of the new book "Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies." In this episode, Nick and I explore the topic of identifying "existential" human risks (those that could wipe out life forever), and how individuals and groups might mediate these risks on a grand scale to better secure the flourishing of humanity in the coming decades and centuries.

Anton Þórólfsson is working on letting you work from "home"... or from the Amazon jungle, or from the moon. Well... not the actual moon, or your real "home," but a virtual one. His company, MURE VR (he sits today as co-founder and COO) is working on allowing indiviuals to interact with all of their computer programs in a totally virtual world thanks to the help of the Oculus Rift.

This would allow a user to strap on a headset and headphones, and escape into whatever virtual environment he or she liked, accessing a potentially unlimited number of "screens" (displays) and computer programs all at once. The task, as you might image, isn't easy, and in this interview, Anton talks to us not only about how the entire idea of "work" might change in the coming decades, but about the technological hurdles that companies like his will have to cross to get there.

Dr. Christoph Guger is founder of g.Tec, a company that focuses on creating devices and parts for the field of brain-machine interface. In this particular interview, Christoph shares with us the direction and progress of brain-machine interface, as well as explaining the concept of "embodiment," where a person truly "feels" that a device controlled by their thoughts is a part of themselves, and extension of themselves. Where might these technologies make their jump into the mainstream? Listen to Christoph's interview here.

Augmented reality, for the most part, is still relegated to smartphones and relatively novel headset experiences. We've come a long way in the last 15 years since Georgia Tech's Blair MacIntyre first got involved in AR, and in this episode he explains what the future might look like as get closer and closer to an immersed AR experience.
