3rd in a series about future of current narrow AIs.
Read After On by Rob Reid, before you listen or because you listen.
This is our 2nd episode thinking about possible paths to superintelligence focusing on one kind of narrow AI each show. This episode is about embodiment and robots. It’s possible we never really agreed about what we were talking about and need to come back to robots.
Future ideas for this series include:
personal assistants (Siri, Alexa, etc)
search engines (or maybe those just fall under tools
social networks or other big data / working on completely different time / size scale from humans
augmentation (computer / brain interface)

How might we get from today’s narrow AIs to AGI? This episode focus is tools.
Is all AI-involved science fiction the same?
We talked about the Nexus Trilogy of novels as a way to further our thinking about the wizard hat idea Tim Urban wrote about in his article about Elon Musk’s Neuralink.
