Handling Uncertaintly on a Grand Scale - an Interview with Cornell’s Dr. Joe Halpern

Decades ago, Cornell’s Dr. Joe Halpern wrote a book called “Reasoning with Uncertainty.” In this interview, we discuss alternatives approaches to handling large scale uncertainty - as might be applied to broad concerns such as environmental policy, or the management of hard-to-previct emerging technologies.

 

Through thought experiments and some philosophical exploration, Prof. Halpern explains some potential alternatives to “probabilities,” and opens up the door to other, potentially more robust methods of managing large, uncertain, important questions for humanity’s future.

Fact and Fiction in the Left and Right Hemisphere - Neuroanatomy Basics with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor became remarkably well-known following her TED talk called “My stroke of insight,” where she explained her experience of having a stroke from her perspective… that is to say: perspective of a neuroscientist. Since then Jill has been featured on Oprah, and her book (with the same title as her TED talk) is available in over 30 languages worldwide.

In this interview, Dr. Taylor explains her perspective on the place and purpose of the left and right hemispheres, and how an understanding of neuroanatomy might help us make sense of our own desires / drives, and help us lead a more fulfilling or productive life.

What Would it Take to Model the Human Mind? - Computational Neuroanatomy with Dr. Gregory Hickok

Dr. Gregory Hickok is working on modeling brain circuits related to hearing and auditory information at the University of California, Irvine.

Listen into this interview to hear what Greg believes might be the grandest application of cognitive neuroscience in the coming decade, and why - when asked about modeling the human brain in the coming decades - he says “I don’t see the brain giving up it’s secrets in the next couple of generations.”

Transhumanist for President? Interview with Author and 2016 Transhumanist Party Candidate for US President, Zoltan Istvan

Zoltan Istvan doesn’t believe that issues of life extension, genetic modification, and neural prosthetics are the problems for the president in the year 220, but that they’re among the most important considerations of the future of America, and of human life in general.

In this interview, I ask Zoltan what kinds of technology and health initiatives he’d get behind as a president, as well as his own thoughts as to how concerns of merging technology might be brought to the forefront of American awareness (without a disaster, that is).

"Bunnies in Newspapers" is what Trak Lord thinks of as "gimmicky augmented realty." You know the stuff, the little character that jumps from the magazine page when you hover your smartphone over it. It usually doesn't ad much value to the user's experience, some people feel that it might be a detriment to the industry. So what does the head of US marketing for one of the world's first Augmented reality companies think WILL be helpful for the field of AR? Listen up.

Howard Rheingold has a knack for understanding the future. In the 1980's he wrote "Tools for Thought," a book about the personal computer and the coming era of mind-expanding technology, and recently he's published "Net Smart" about how humanity can help itself through collaboration on the web. He teaches a class on collaboration at Standford, and in this episode, shares some of his biggest lessons about the past and potentially revolutionary future of how humans share and collaborate to make everyone's life better.
