Episode Description:

In this episode, we look at the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, and the need to not lose sight of basic human values as we rush to embrace this new technology. Host Martin Wasserman interviews Steve Omohundro, who’s worked in the field of AI for many years as a scientist, a professor, an author and an entrepreneur, and who recently founded Self-Aware Systems, a Silicon Valley think tank dedicated to ensuring the proper use of AI. Trying to put intelligence into machines necessarily gives us insights into the workings of our own intelligence, and the program also touches on the nature of thought and consciousness, what we hope to achieve by making machines smarter, and how we define the “human good."
