The creators of the AMC drama series HUMANS Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent return to the podcast, and then I'm joined by the stars of the show Gemma Chan, Tom Goodman-Hill and Sam Palladio. We discuss how consciousness might spread among intelligent machines, what "the singularity" might be like from their perspective, whether recent behavioral and psychological disorders arising from kids attachment to smart devices may foreshadow even more disturbing problems to come, and Gemma Chan shares what it’s like to learn to be a robot at "synth school." Plus robot marriage counselors, robot/human love, and the Scartlett Johansen robot.
