We have this friend staying with us in Avalon right now. We actually met him because when we launched Guidepost of Light, he hacked our website to help us see how broken it was being made. We soon became great friends, and he came out to live with us for a few months and make fun technologies together!
Anyways, he showed us this video, and it completely floored us. There is so much vision and wisdom in this entire series “Juice Rap News”, I think I’m just going to post all of them!
Today we travel into the pure world of sci-fi to investigate the much vaunted, mysterious potential future event known as ‘The Singularity’. What will a machine consciousness mean for humanity? What are the ethical, political, military and philosophical implications of strong A.I.? And what would an AI sound like when spitting rhymes over a dope beat? All this and more shall be revealed in Rap News 28: The Singularity – featuring a special appearance from famed technocrat, futurist and inventor, Ray Kurzweil, in full TED talk mode; everyone’s favourite warmonger, General Baxter; and we welcome back the dauntless info warrior Alex Jones, who last made an appearance in RN6. Join Robert Foster on this epic Sci-Fi quest into the future/past of humanity.
