A conversation with an AI researcher and computer scientist about the end of the world and human decision-making, sort of.

This is a transcript of the first of hopefully many conversations with AI researcher Ernie Davis - I had permission form him to record our conversation and was part of the research I did for building a character for my unproduceable screenplay about the future of humanity and the role of AI in guiding human logic and illogic. He mostly didn't know what I was talking about because all language is underspecified, especially for computer people but in the end I think I convinced him what I was asking him about in regards to society had something to do with AI after all, at least in the context of my story outline.  <3
