Show Notes

Is AI on the path to sentience? This time on Minds Worth Meeting, Justin Louis speaks with the director of Columbia University’s Creative Machines Lab, Hod Lipson.

In this episode:

  • Hod talks about the speed with which artificial intelligence is advancing right now and tells us that we shouldn’t think about AI as a “thing” but as a “journey”.
  • Hod, who wrote the book “Driverless: Intelligent Cars and the Road Ahead,” says that it will still be some time before we see truly driverless cars on our highways – “they have to earn their place,” he says.
  • We talk about what creativity means in the context of “creative machines” and he tells us about his autonomous robot that paints stunning works of art.
  • Hod weighs in on one of AI’s most controversial topics – how do we know when AI has become self-aware?
