Episode Info:

In this episode we’re joined by Calum Chace - a columnist, is an author and speaker on artificial intelligence. 

His books - ”The Economic Singularity" addresses the coming wave of cognitive automation; ”Surviving AI" looks further ahead to the arrival of strong AI, (aka human-level AI, or artificial general intelligence) which will lead to superintelligence.

Unsurprisingly, we cover some BIG topics: AI, work, capitalism, machines… future of humanity.


Conversations cover:


  • The Economic Singularity: The moment in the future when we need a different firm of economic structure because machines render almost all humans unemployable.


  • How the world of jobs is going to change, increasingly quickly: Machines are going to replace humans in increasing numbers of tasks and jobs, so we’re going to have to change what jobs or tasks we do multiple times over our lifetime. This means retraining and re-skilling more and more profoundly.


  • The need to widen the AI and work conversation to wider society.


  • Why we must stop comparing the impact of AI and machine learning to the Industrial Revolution: Changes will be far more seismic.


  • Universal Basic Income: Calum shares his thoughts on why he’s not in favour of it. Instead we make the costs of everything really cheap... aka the Abundance Economy.


  • AI, equality and social cohesion: How will we know if AI has resulted in good or bad outcomes on society… and who say’s what’s good or bad?
