Nikola Danaylov and John Rennie on TRT World News: Are we nearing the Singularity?

Nikola Danaylov TRT World News 3Last Wednesday morning I and John Rennie participated in a very short televised debate for TRT World News titled “Are we nearing the Singularity?”.

Now, I was totally green-screened, had no TV monitor to look at, my ear-piece — the only input of connecting with the host and my interlocutor kept popping out of my ear, and, as you will see, I am not even in focus. Not sleeping for several days in a row doesn’t help either but, other than that, I think it was all perfect. 😉

Synopsis: After a computer out-smarts a human at a complex game for the first time, The Newsmakers talks to John Rennie and Nikola Danaylov about whether this could be the beginning of the Singularity with artificial intelligence.
