Mike Palmer is rejoined by Virtual CoHost, Nancy, in a dialogue about the modern news of Google’s LaMDA or Language Designs for Dialog Apps centered on chat transcripts leaked by Blake Lemoine, a senior computer software engineer in Google’s Dependable AI business. We also share views on a current short article about “podfasters,” folks who choose to listen to audio at accelerated speeds.

Nancy and Mike share their perspectives on the record of AI and Turing Exams to decide whether or not they have arrived at crucial milestones en route to sentience and higher varieties of consciousness. We talk Turing and Ada Lovelace before recounting Mike’s encounters with Eliza on his TRS-80 in his basement back again in the day. From there, we reenact excerpts from the transcripts that have been leaked prior to sharing our human and non-human usually takes on the current kerfuffle.

From there we touch on Religion Karimi’s write-up on “Podfasters” as we dive into that development and our personal experiences and views on it. All in all, it’s an imaginative and cutting-edge foray into the implications of what’s new and emergent in a free of charge-flowing discussion you never want to miss out on.
