Futures Podcast #23: The World According to Physics, with Jim Al-Khalili

presented by Jim Al-Khalili, Luke Robert Mason

Ultimately, there’s a real­i­ty out there and for me, science—and physics in particular—is the best way of under­stand­ing the nature of that real­i­ty.

Futures Podcast #22: Cultivating Long Term Thinking, with Roman Krznaric

presented by Luke Robert Mason, Roman Krznaric

I think there is a glob­al grow­ing move­ment of what I think of as time rebels, who are chal­leng­ing that idea of lin­ear time, extend­ing our hori­zons beyond our mor­tal­i­ty. A hun­dred years, a thou­sand years ahead. Ten thou­sand years ahead. Their voic­es are becom­ing stronger and stronger.

Futures Podcast #21: How Hype Obscures the Future, with Gemma Milne

presented by Gemma Milne, Luke Robert Mason

Hype only has pow­er in its illu­sion and if more peo­ple start­ed from a mind­set of crit­i­cal think­ing, hype would­n’t have its pow­er.

Futures Podcast #20: Abolish Silicon Valley, with Wendy Liu

presented by Luke Robert Mason, Wendy Liu

You know, we need to think about col­lec­tive action and col­lec­tive solu­tions. We need to envi­sion a new par­a­digm for how soci­ety should be gov­erned.

Futures Podcast #19: Coevolution of Humans and Machines, with Edward A. Lee

presented by Edward A. Lee, Luke Robert Mason

What we need is a new phi­los­o­phy of tech­nol­o­gy that is much more inte­grat­ed with our under­stand­ing of cul­ture and human process­es.

Futures Podcast #18: Evolutionary Mismatch, with Adam Hart

presented by Adam Hart, Luke Robert Mason

We are such a glob­al­ly suc­cess­ful species in terms of our num­bers and spread that we real­ly do need to reassess our rela­tion­ship with how we sit on the plan­et. I think we’ll get there, but we won’t get there quite as quick­ly as we might like.

Futures Podcast #17: Our Future Selves, with Yancey Strickler

presented by Luke Robert Mason, Yancey Strickler

It’s large­ly my the­o­ry that the post-internet inno­va­tion won’t be like AR or AI or what­ev­er; anoth­er tech­no­log­i­cal rev­o­lu­tion. I think the rev­o­lu­tion after the inter­net is consciousness—human con­scious­ness. The net­worked organ­ism of all of us. I don’t mean that in a sin­gu­lar­i­ty kind of way.

Futures Podcast #16: Explaining Humans, with Dr. Camilla Pang

presented by Camilla Pang, Luke Robert Mason

Science has been my moth­er tongue when peo­ple weren’t, in that it moved with me and my thoughts no mat­ter what place I was. No mat­ter how hap­py or sad or lost I was, I knew that at least where I stood, it was there around me.

Futures Podcast #15: Hacktivism, with Maureen Webb & Lauri Love

presented by Lauri Love, Luke Robert Mason, Maureen Webb

Hacking, orig­i­nal­ly, is a tech­ni­cal prac­tice. It’s an ethos of tech­nol­o­gists, but it’s increas­ing­ly becom­ing a metaphor for a new kind of social activism, which is all about dis­trib­uted democ­ra­cy, dis­trib­uted pow­er, dis­trib­uted deci­sion mak­ing.

Futures Podcast #14: Machine Creativity, with Arthur I. Miller

presented by Arthur I. Miller

We should not judge the work of AI on the basis of whether it can be dis­tin­guished from work done by us, because what’s the point. We want AI to pro­duce work that we present­ly can­not even imag­ine. That may seem to us meaningless—and even nonsensical—but it may be bet­ter than what we can pro­duce.
