095 - Guest: George Dyson, Computer Historian
This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it, right? Or maybe the problem is that we should be repeating some history that we’re not. My guest is George Dyson, master kayak builder, keynote speaker about the history of computing, and the author of Analogia: The Emergence of Technology Beyond Programmable Control; Darwin Among the Machines: The Evolution of Global Intelligence; and Turing’s Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe. Hear his stories about John von Neumann, Alan Turing, and why he thinks that what today's computer companies are missing out on is Analog Computing.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.
