Ep. 102: Phil Torres Ponders Humanity's Future and Extinction

Phil Torres is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. Phil is an author, contributor at the Future of Life Institute, Affiliate Scholar at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, and founder of the X-Risks Institute.

In this week's episode of the podcast, Phil and Chauncey talk about the future, extinction level events, emerging technologies, the Terminator films A.I. scenario, the singularity, and the role of technology in human development. Chauncey and Phil also do some sharing about the puzzle of "expertise," religion and mass psychology, low information voters, and the rise of Donald Trump.   During this week's podcast, Chauncey talks about his recent appearance on The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann, Jim Crow-like Black Codes in Baltimore and their thuggish cops, and the new movie Suicide Squad. Chauncey also reads some kind fan emails and has a good time mocking the future predictions of America in 2034 as offered up by white supremacists.
