In episode 237 of the Parker's Pensées Podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Ben Goertzel to discuss the philosophy of artificial general intelligence. We dive into the distinction between analytic and continental philosophy, the definition of artificial general intelligence, and take a deep dive into Ben's work on his latest AGI project, OpenCog Hyperon. It's an amazing episode and hopefully the first of like a hundred episodes with Ben! If you like this podcast, then support it on Patreon for $3, $5 or more a month. Any amount helps, and for $5 you get a Parker's Pensées sticker and instant access to all the episode as I record them instead of waiting for their release date.
