Tonight’s hosts are David, Rym, Scott and Thaed along with newcomers Luke and Jason. Here are the topics:
–Craigslist is destroying newspapers. But is it really more of a question of the interface? You don’t need the paper, you can get what you want online. But what happens when we can receive information wirelessly directly into our heads. What happens when the interface melts away? You don’t need television, radio, phones or even computers assuming brain communication is two-way. Moreover, if you can get sensory information this way with greater resolution than your five senses provide, what happens next?
–Carl Jacobi is known for using inversion to achieve insight and to solve problems. The idea is that you look at a problem backwards or from another person’s perspective to work it out. Have you tried this? Does it work for you?
–In developing AI, where do self-teaching algorithm or genetic algorithm come into play? Where is AI development going today? What are the latest advancements? How long before we all have robot
–What is the future of theater, concerts, circuses, sports and other types of live performance entertainment? Do people need to gather in meatspace and be entertained? Is the economy (or the Internet) going to shut this down? Is live entertainment doomed?
–Ask the economist.
