The impact of artificial intelligence on our everyday lives will be so profound that our modern institutions will change completely. Employment, government, romance, social norms–all of these things will be upended. To see the signs of this coming, you no longer have to read science fiction. Every week, there are blog posts, news stories, and videos chronicling our strange, exciting time.
Rob May is an investor in artificial intelligence companies and is CEO of the AI company Talla. Every week, he puts out the Technically Sentient newsletter, a compilation of the best pieces of information about AI over the past week. Each newsletter also contains a short essay by Rob in which he gives a big picture perspective on what he is seeing in the AI space.
This was an illuminating conversation with Rob about the implications of artificial intelligence and the topics he writes about in Technically Sentient.
I first saw Rob speak at the Launch Scale Festival, which Jason Calacanis puts on as a free event for people who have started companies.
