Today’s guest is Dr. Robin Hanson, Associate Professor of Economics at George Mason University with a Ph.D. in Social Science from the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Hanson’s first book, “The Age of Em: Work, Love, and Life when Robots Rule the Earth,” was published in 2016 and focused on the concept of emulating human consciousness by scanning the human brain. This series is all about the question of what the future of the human experience is like, and Dr. Hanson shares his eye-opening perspective of this emulation technology alongside strong artificial intelligence and how the two might come together to change the future of work and life.
