Welcome to episode #799 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #799 - Host: Mitch Joel. Best known for his reporting on artificial intelligence, driverless cars, robotics, virtual reality, and other emerging areas, Cade Metz is a reporter with The New York Times. Previously, he was a senior staff writer with Wired magazine, the U.S. editor of The Register, PC Magazine, and other outlets. His first book is called Genius Makers - The Mavericks Who Brought AI to Google, Facebook, and the World. Genius Makers looks are deep questions like: What does it mean to be smart? To be human? What do we really want from life and the intelligence we have, or might create? From the back cover: "The book presents the fierce conflict among national interests, shareholder value, the pursuit of scientific knowledge, and the very human concerns about privacy, security, bias, and prejudice. Like a great Victorian novel, this world of eccentric, brilliant, often unimaginably yet suddenly wealthy characters draws you into the most profound moral questions we can ask. And like a great mystery, it presents the story and facts that lead to a core, vital question: How far will we let it go?" Enjoy the conversation...
