.@SamHarrisOrg on meditation: "changing degree to which you are lost in neg thoughts is as good as changing world"-w/@jason-THX @blueapron

Today’s guest is Sam Harris, philosopher, neuroscientist and best-selling author of books including “Waking Up,” “The End of Faith,” “Letter to a Christian Nation,” and “The Moral Landscape.” Jason and Sam explore a wide range of topics, including the ethics of robots, the value of meditation, Trump’s lies, and his most recent obsession AI, which stemmed from an initial conversation with Elon Musk. Sam argues that the threat of uncontrolled AI is one of the most pressing issues of our time and poses the question: Can we build AI without losing control over it? The two then discuss why meditation is so important for entrepreneurs and business people. Sam has built his brand and fan base around radical honesty and authenticity, so the conversation naturally segues to Trump and his lies. This is only the first of two parts, so stay tuned for much more.

When we want to solve a complicated math problem quickly and accurately, many of us will turn to a calculator without thinking twice. But would you want a machine determining the outcome of a complex legal case? This is the question Jaerin Jo got hung up on after participating in a debate about AI at her school. Jaerin's own father is a judge in South Korea, and imagining a future where robots preside over courtrooms brought up many brain-twisting questions about the appropriate uses of AI and the nature of justice itself. This thought-provoking Talk imagines what an AI justice system might look like, and asks you to consider how you would participate in it.
