S03E04 - AI & The Singularity with Dr Sofia Vallecorsa

August 24, 2020

This week I have a conversation with Dr Sofia Vallecorsa from CERN Open-Lab regarding AI and The Singularity.

There are two sides of the camp on AI. The first is that AI and robots will take over the world and the second is that we are so far away from this reality we have enough time to make sure this doesn't happen. In my conversation with Dr Sofia Vallecorsa we discuss her work at Cern, home of the Large Hadron Collider. Sofia's extensive experience in software development in the High Energy Physics domain, in particular on Quantum Computing and Deep Learning applications makes for a very interesting conversation on the future of AI.
