Artificial Intelligence: Drone World rather than West World?
We examine Artificial Intelligence (AI) in this episode with Professor Toby Walsh. Toby is a Professor of Artificial Intelligence in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. John & Toby discuss the trajectory of AI in the modern world and that in the longer term, AI will be more Drone World as opposed to West World of science fiction fame. Furthermore, we ask whether we will ever know when AI has reached sentience? And what was all that recent noise in the media about a former Google employee saying that an AI platform the company is working on has achieved sentience?
