Knotty Geeks Episode 06 - I, for one, welcome our new Robot Overlords

Posted by: Jeremy Reimer on Fri Dec 10 14:04:39 2010.

After too long an absence, we’re back with a show covering one specific theme: Should expert systems and possibly artificial intelligences take over the big banking and other financial decisions, in order to prevent us flawed humans from having another economic meltdown?

I argue that they should, while Terry has a more nuanced view of the subject.

Links from the show: - P.R. Sarkar’s theory of economic collapse - Darwin’s Radio sci-fi novel - Disruptive Technology - The Innovator’s Dilemma - Black Monday 1987 - Steven Levy’s Artifical Life
