AP Dec 14, 2016: Trump’s Robot Overlords (Waking Up With Sam Harris Episode 53: The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence)

Listen to the show we listened to at: https://www.samharris.org/podcast/item/the-dawn-of-artificial-intelligence1

We rated the show 1.75 Big Grins (rounded up to 2)  

Rag and Bone Man is human after all:

Neil confuses himself talking to his Google robot and Paul thinks the robots’ overlords are sexist.
Paul questions AI research and Neil refutes the argument (embryo research is what he was trying to grasp at — needed more coffee).
Robin Williams grants Paul 3 Wishes and Neil lays out his theory of how Trump won the presidency.
Neil and Paul recall their own robotic pasts and remember PodBot (RIP).
To close the show, Sully wins his own war against AI.
