Episode Info:

This week we are joined by James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention. For 20 years James Barrat has written and produced documentaries. His clients include National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, and more. His long fascination with Artificial Intelligence came to a head in 2000, when He interviewed inventor Ray Kurzweil, roboticist Rodney Brooks, and sci-fi legend Arthur C. Clarke. Kurzweil and Brooks were casually optimistic about a future they considered inevitable – a time when we will share the planet with intelligent machines. It is from here that in steps James’ book Our Final Invention, which is about what can go wrong with the development and application of advanced AI. It’s about AI’s catastrophic downside, one you’ll never hear about from Google, Apple, IBM, and DARPA. He and myself agree that it’s the most important conversation of our time, and I for one am so excited to be talking with him today. || #bejewelledpod #gemsoftruth #jamesbarrat #artificialintelligence
