  1. Thank your for producing another thoughtful and enlightening episode. Listening to discussions and reading about AI unsettles me because of the potential for both narrow and general AI to radically reshape society. The threat to human work and by extension our redundancy is one of many frightening consequences of this tech. It brings to mind the current main story arc in season 2 of Star Trek discovery which revolves around the Federation’s battle to stop its creation Control AI from accessing data that will enable it to achieve singularity. Thanks again from Australia.
