Prof. Sylvester Johnson, Part 1: What does it mean to be human? From Aristotle to AI.

With the help of Professor Johnson of Virginia Tech, we discuss what it means to be human in an age of accelerating technology, where computers and robots can think and maybe even feel. Professor Johnson explains several of the amazing technologies that exist today, both “outside” people and those being incorporated directly into people’s bodies, and how industry and government is pushing this forward. He really expanded our views on how to think about humanity and technology.
