Jamais on Singularity 1 on 1: You Matter! Your Choices Make A Difference



Jamais Cascio

Posted: Nov 29, 2012


IEET’s Jamais Cascio’s chat with “Socrates” (Nikola Danaylov) covered a wide variety of topics such as: his personal story of becoming “an easily distracted generalist;” his undergraduate and graduate training in history, anthropology and political science; his views on the singularity community in general and the technological singularity and Singularity University in particular; his criticism that creators of new technology rarely consider the ethical and political implications of their inventions; what he means by saying “if I can’t dance, I don’t want to be a part of the singularity;” the benefits of irrationality and biology; mind uploading versus human augmentation; the lack of agency and assumed machine perfection as some of the most upsetting aspects of the singularity.
