The AI Peril with James Barrat - Artificial Intelligence Series Part 5

For the fifth installment of the Artificial Intelligence Series, Darrell Becker and I interview James Barrat.  James is a film maker, public speaker, and an author.   His book, Our Final Invention, masterfully presents the case for why you should be worried about the singularity. 

 

How is AI different from other multi-use technologies?  What are the basic drives that an AI will have?  Can't we just program ethics into AIs and alleviate our worries?  How does James feel about AI depictions in popular media?  We cover all of these questions and more in this delightful conversation!

Alternative Education - Reboot Your Kids recast 004

While the Reboot Your Kids website lives on, it no longer hosts the podcasts I recorded with Kevin Geary last year.  For posterity's sake, I'm putting those shows into the Choice Conversations feed.

In this episode, Kevin and I tackle the gargantuan topic of alternative education and the problems with modern schooling. The conversation explores: The proposed purpose of schooling.  The underlying purpose of schooling. Where did “the system” come from? Are public and private schools the same thing? The toxicity of an environment filled with broken people, be they teachers or students.  All of this and more!

Liberland, The Real Land of the Free with Vít Jedlička

I had the privelege to talk with Vít Jedlička, President of the new libertarian nation The Free Republic of Liberland.  President Vít goes into detail about how things typically handled by governments will work in a country where state power is limited and taxes are voluntary. Who will build the roads?  How will the justice system work?  Can a crypto-currency be a nation's legal tender?  How do I become a citizen?

 

We talk about the Liberland constitution, covering topics like how citizens are granted the right to veto any new bills.  Public works will be paid for through croudfunding, and shares for public works will be traded on the Liberland Stock Market.

 

We discuss all this and more in this fascinating look at the birth of the Libertarian homeland.
