SPECIAL GUEST: John Danaher (Algocracy & Transhumanism Project). Algorithms. Machine Learning. Deep Learning. You may have heard the terms before but do you know what they mean? In fact, they are becoming a new form of governance that will affect all of our lives. We’re joined by past guest and friend John Danaher, who has been working in this space for a while, to talk about the Algocracy and Transhumanism Project. The Project now includes a podcast, so we also talk a bit of podcasting with John. Algorithms are even now defining the kind of life that is available to each and every one of us. This is definitely an area that we should be having conversations about. Recorded 6/26/2016.
