Next Friday (August 19th) there’s a Future Salon titled Poetry of Brains. Spencer pinged to say he was going, and it’s been too long since I’ve been to a Future Salon event. And I admit it, I’m a silicon AI fan. Despite the failure of efforts so far to create working models, I just can’t read Neuromancer and not think about how cool it would be to have an AI wandering around somewhere scheming against its creators. Or Ghost in the Shell? Come on, admit it. You thought about how to write a polymorphic self-replicating expoit program too.
