  1. Paul Davies: “The Demon in the Machine” | Talks at Google

    Paul Davies is an English physicist, writer and broadcaster, a professor at Arizona State University as well as the Director of the Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science. His research spans fields like cosmology, quantum field theory, and astrobiology. For Talks at Google he discusses his new book "The Demon in the Machine" about how hidden webs of information are solving the mysteries of life. For generations, scientists have struggled to make sense of the fundamental question "what is life?". On the boundary of science and philosophy, Paul Davies wonders if life can be explained by known physics and chemistry, or whether we do need something fundamentally new?

  2. Daniel Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow, Deep Learning, and AI | MIT | Artificial Intelligence Podcast

    Daniel Kahneman is winner of the Nobel Prize in economics for his integration of economic science with the psychology of human behavior, judgment and decision-making. He is the author of the popular book “Thinking, Fast and Slow” that summarizes in an accessible way his research of several decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky, on cognitive biases, prospect theory, and happiness. The central thesis of this work is a dichotomy between two modes of thought: “System 1” is fast, instinctive and emotional; “System 2” is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The book delineates cognitive biases associated with each type

  3. CBC Radio

    Douglas Rushkoff witnessed the initial promise of the internet ⁠— a ‘social medium’ for thoughtful encounters and the democratizing of knowledge. It’s since become ‘social media’; a system that colonizes our minds and enriches a handful of ethically challenged developers. Rushkoff says we need to reaffirm that we are social beings, and reappropriate technology to support and cultivate what he calls ‘Team Human.’

  7. The Curse of Bigness – Ralph Nader Radio Hour

    Afdal Shahanshah says:

    Actually, it IS about Russia not trying to influence the election, because three years later there is still ZERO EVIDENCE that the Russian state did anything of the sort.

    It’s a dangerous hoax used to divert attention from corruption (politician corruption, political party corruption, media corruption, actual, genuine election fraud, voter suppression, you name it) and manufacture consent for continued insane military spending and a onslaught against real journalists like Julian Assange.

    All the while the Doomsday Clock has been pushed to the closest point to midnight as it was in the early ’50s.

    Yes, it’s important for people to remember how much the US meddles in other countries’ elections around the world and not to kid ourselves by presuming that other countries wouldn’t do the same (Israel and Saudi Arabia for instance), but the fact is the Russiagate hoax’s strongest adherents have had years to come up with something substantive while they push this crap and they still have zilch.

    Will any of these propagandists pay a price for three years of lies?

    Will anyone at MSNBC lose their job over journalistic impropriety?

    And what does this say about the people who allowed themselves to fall for the hoax?

    How was it that they were able to be tricked, putting their critical thinking skills on hold because Trump got elected?

    They need to ask themselves that question and figure out an answer most of all.

    A commitment to evidence and empiricism is the central pillar of ‘progressivism’.

    If you cannot meet that requirement nor hold those accountable who don’t, then you can’t seriously call yourself a progressive.
