EPISODE #597 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PSYCHEDELICS, AND CONSCIOUSNESS

Can we build a robot that trips on acid? This is not a frivolous question, according to neuroscientist Andrew Smart. If we can’t, he argues, we haven’t really created artificial intelligence. Richard and Andrew discuss his book Beyond Zero and One, which challenges fundamental assumptions underlying artificial intelligence.
