Ted and I continue our discussion from last week, please have a listen to Part I here.

We discuss the future of political institutions, computer programming, software design, Richard Feynman, Universal Basic Income, the Cuban Missile crisis, space travel, Wolfram’s computational universe, artificial intelligence, Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3,) and heaps more. Ted had me laughing and scratching my head all at once again.

Please enjoy this. The Richard Feynman video about magnets and scientific literacy that we mention can be found here.
