Disruption happens when the future arrives faster than we anticipated. We've had plenty of that lately, but as far as the disruption from artificial intelligence is concerned, it's only warming up. Sink, swim, or surf: how do you want to handle the waves of change AI is bringing?

To help us stretch our imagination, this episode's mind-blowing guests are Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, science fiction authors with numerous credits in science fiction and Hollywood for over thirty years, particularly in the Star Trek universe, writing novels such as Memory Prime and Prime Directive and with writer and producer credits on the series Star Trek Enterprise. They’ve helped NASA with visioning future goals through a Space Policy workshop, they’ve helped Disney design theme park rides, and they won the Constellation award for creating the series Primeval: New World.

In this episode, we talk about their experiences in the world of science fiction and how they've changed with the pandemic, adventures helping NASA, the aspirations of Star Trek, and their thoughts about what advanced AIs would really be like.  All that and our customary look at today's headlines in AI.
