We are on the brink of a new industrial revolution. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to turn the stuff of science fiction into science fact. And the future of AI has profound implications for the future of society, politics and even humanity itself.
So argues author and AI architect, George Zarkadakis, speaking to Dominic Frisby in the second episode of the Virgin Podcast.
What is Artificial Intelligence? What is its history? Why are we so obsessed with it? And what is it going to do us? Zarkadakis explains all.
He takes us back to the origins of AI, 60,000 years ago (yes, you read that number right). He explains where we are today. And he looks ahead – telling us what we can expect.
