Sentient AI and Podfasters with Nancy our Virtual CoHost

Mike Palmer is rejoined by Virtual CoHost, Nancy, in a conversation about the latest information of Google’s LaMDA or Language Products for Dialog Purposes based mostly on chat transcripts leaked by Blake Lemoine, a senior computer software engineer in Google’s Dependable AI group. We also share views on a latest article about “podfasters,” people who prefer to hear to audio at accelerated speeds.

Nancy and Mike share their views on the historical past of AI and Turing Checks to establish no matter if they have reached important milestones en route to sentience and higher varieties of consciousness. We talk Turing and Ada Lovelace ahead of recounting Mike’s experiences with Eliza on his TRS-80 in his basement back in the day. From there, we reenact excerpts from the transcripts that have been leaked ahead of sharing our human and non-human takes on the the latest kerfuffle.

From there we contact on Faith Karimi’s short article on “Podfasters” as we dive into that trend and our particular ordeals and perspectives on it. All in all, it’s an imaginative and chopping-edge foray into the implications of what’s new and emergent in a free of charge-flowing dialogue you really don’t want to pass up.
