We’re joined by Dr. Rumman Chowdhury for an in-depth look at many of the different depictions of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the Star Trek universe. Why are malevolent AIs always susceptible to logic problems? Why gender an android? Was it ethical to send Moriarty out into a simulated universe? Can a very advanced machine learning algorithm lead to the Singularity? We ponder all of these questions and more.
