179: Unspeakably Unlikely

Play

KMO welcomes Bruce Damer back to the program to talk about the incredibly improbable development of an organic intelligence that creates virtual worlds and how the use of virtual worlds may reveal the mechanisms by which biological evolution got its start. Bruce says he feels like a character in a science fiction novel, and the conversation takes a tour through the realms of science fiction which has foreshadowed the global unraveling of industrial civilization in a world where information technology continues to proliferate and advance at an accelerating pace. Bruce explains why he thinks the mechanism of Moore’s Law is unlikely to spawn emergent machine intelligence.
