Conversation with David Brin on AI

Have had some conversations with Sci Fi author David Brin on AI and privacy.  Look forward to seeing the contextual and speculative views of a science fiction writer.

Voices in AI – Episode 39: A Conversation with David Brin    Interviewed by Byron Reese  

In this episode Byron and David discuss intelligence, consciousness, Moore’s Law, and an AI crisis. ....

No he does not expect AI to become truly self aware .... 

Byron Reese: This is Voices in AI brought to you by GigaOm, and I’m Byron Reese. Today our guest is David Brin. He is best-known for shining light—both plausibly and entertainingly—on technology, society, and countless challenges confronting our rambunctious civilization.  His best-selling novels include The Postman, which was filmed in ’97, plus explorations of our near-future in Earth and Existence. Other novels of his are translated into over 25 languages. His short stories explore vividly speculative ideas.  His non-fiction book The Transparent Society won the American Library Association’s Freedom of Speech Award for exploring 21st-century concerns about security, secrecy, accountability, and privacy. And as a scientist, a tech consultant, a world-renowned author, he speaks and advises, and writes widely on topics from national defense to homeland security to astronomy to space exploration to nanotechnology, creativity, philanthropy. He kind of covers the whole gambit. I’m so excited to have him on the show. Welcome, David Brin  ..... "
