In this episode, I chat with Jim Keen about why he became an architect, how a boy from Manchester ended up in New York, and the challenges of re-acclimating to the West after travelling the world. We also discuss the present and near future of artificial intelligence: text-to-image generation AI, will we develop self-aware machines, and just what will the job market look like post-AI? As always, there are The Big Questions and Revenge of the Muse, and new to season 3 is The Lightning Round. Books of his we discuss are: The Alice Yu trilogy (The Paradise Factory, This Automatic Eden, The Genesis Engine), Agent Zero, and the Cortex Saga.
