“I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.”–Stephen Hawking
For Seeking Delphi’s fiftieth** episode, we return to visit with one of our earliest guests, professional futurist and author Richard Yonck. Three years ago, he joined me to discuss his first book, Heart of the Machine. He returns now for a conversation about his second book, Future Minds. In it, he has taken a broad look at intelligence–human and otherwise. It’s a sweeping review of how intelligence evolved since the start of the universe, and a preview of where it may be going as we tweak both our biology and our intelligent machines.
**Actually, including un-numbered special editions, there have been over 60. But who’s counting?
