It’s Time To Envision Who We Are And Where We Want To Go - Steve Omohundro on Singularity 1 on 1

Steve Omohundro is a scientist, professor, author, and entrepreneur who has a Ph.D. in physics but has spent decades studying intelligent systems and artificial intelligence. His research into the basic “AI Drives” was featured in James Barrat’s recent book Our Final Invention and has been generating international interest. And so I was very happy to get Dr. Omohundro on my Singularity 1 on 1 podcast.
During our 1 hour conversation we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: his personal path starting with a PhD in physics and ending into AI; his unique time with Richard Feynman; the goals, motivation and vision behind is work; Omai Ventures and Self Aware Systems; the definition of AI; Rational Decision Making and the Turing Test; provably safe mathematical systems and AI scaffolding; hard vs soft singularity take-offs…”
