What's intelligence? Ashley Llorens, Chief of the Intelligent Systems Center at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, has a good idea. He joins us to talk about intelligence of the human-type and the machine-type, and what it will take for machines to get up to speed.

Plus, Ashley talks about the connection between being a hip hop artist and a machine learning engineer. You can listen to ad-free new episodes of Science Rules! only on Stitcher Premium.
