#154 - Nick Bostrom and Superintelligence

Who better to discuss superintelligence then two of the most super-intelligent podcasters working today? Unfortunately John Hodgman in Ira Glass were unavailable, so Connor and Dan are taking a crack at discussing Nick Bostrom and his theories on the future of hard AI, specifically as expressed in his 2014 book Superintelligence. Topics discussed: the singularity, the danger of a superintelligence, and the danger of drinking rubbing alcohol. Also, Connor wants to put himself in a jerk-off machine. What else is new.
