AI and the Singularity with Agustinus Nalwan
Call it an impromptu Geek Out! While at NDC Sydney, Carl and Richard talked to Agustinus Nalwan about his work with artificial intelligence technology in his company. This leads to a larger conversation about the risks around AI and the idea that we may be approaching the Singularity - which according to Gus is where technology continues to teach itself. Richard chimes in on the debate around the Singularity from Ray Kurtzweil, exploring how humans could integrate with technology and what that would mean to society as whole. Lots of philosophy, and perhaps even pushing against the edges of spirituality, this isn't a technical show, but it sure is geeky!
Passionate in technology innovation to make people's life easier and with over 20 years of experience in software development, Gus has been working in various industries from 3D/Animation, Games Development, Desktop Software, mobile apps and very recently Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence. Well-known for unorthodox ways of solving difficult problems, Gus is currently the Head of AI at Carsales, inventing and building many cool AI projects such as Cyclops Image Recognition.
