014: On Artificial Intelligence

This week Tao, Tyler, and Gunnar chat about AI and some of the implications. The monkeys contemplate where technology will take people and what exactly AI is before looking at some of the problems. What happens if AI can change itself and rewrite its own code? Will AI inevitably outcompete humanity? Will AI view people as a problem to solve and actively remove them; or merely cause their obsolescence? Are we doomed to a world of being pampered and coddled by AI? It seems as though we are at an important point in time in history where we are potentially summoning our replacements. What are your thoughts?
