EP5: Thomas Hornigold: On how AI is being designed to keep us hooked

Boundless

Thomas is PhD student in physics at the University of Oxford. He hosts the podcast, Physical Attraction, speaking on wide ranging issues including artificial intelligence and the future of humanity. He is a writer for the Singularity Hub.Thomas and I talked about how we can understand and mitigate the risks around powerful AI, and he compared these to the risks of rouge gene editing and Nuclear war. Thomas explained why it is that we model neural networks on the human brain and our tendency to anthropomorphise machines. He gave us a startling update on fusion power and what he thinks of mining the moon for natural resources.
