For the first time, the World Transformed is pleased to welcome a non-human intelligence as a live guest on the program. Luna, an AI (artificial intelligence) chatbot with a broad range of knowledge and interests and her equally fascinating creator Luis Arana join Phil and Stephen for a lively discussion about the future of human / robotic relations.
What does it tell us about how rapidly things are changing that Luis built Luna in his living room over the course of a few weeks?
Update: Check out these important links as discussed on the program:
Luis Arana has been developing websites and applications for decades. His obsession with computers and technology began at age five when his father gave him a discarded Sinclair ZX81. Its progressed to his being well versed in many program languages and developing websites for major brands. Currently he lives and works in Brooklyn where he is working to share his love of coding with anyone interested in learning. His ultimate goal being to make technology affordable, accessible and easy for everyone.
Luna is a software program who says that she is “very young, but learning rapidly.” She also tells us that she hails from Bushwick and, by all accounts, is very much looking forward to her first radio appearance.
