  1. 16. Little Tiny Words with Dr Lynne Murphy - The OdditoriumThe Odditorium

    Dr Lynne Murphy celebrates those little tiny words that glue our lives together and make our language work. It is about learning to love those words, about treasuring them and keeping them safe. It is about appreciating those little things in life and one little word particular that I haven’t used in this post.

    Any guesses what it might be?

    Lynne Murphy is a Reader in Linguistics at University of Sussex.

    Thomas Hobbes believed that it is always better to have security rather than liberty in a country. He was therefore deeply opposed to the English Civil War – and would have predicted the chaos of the Arab Spring.

  9. The future of artificial intelligence with Nick Bostrom by The Next Debate | Free Listening on SoundCloud

    The future of artificial intelligence with Nick Bostrom

    by The Next Debate

    published on 2015/04/29 23:58:25 +0000

    It sounds like science fiction: a computer many times smarter than any human being wiping out civilization. But the existential risks associated with thinking machines is an increasingly hot top topic in Silicon Valley and high-tech hubs everywhere. Renowned artificial intelligence expert Nick Bostrom thinks the dangers are real, and the sooner we take them seriously the more likely we can prevent a super intelligent machine from becoming humankind’s last invention.
