Dr. Karl Friston is the most widely-cited neuroscientist in the world, known for his development of parametric mapping, a method for comparing brain scans between different patients that basically enabled the whole field of functional neuroscience. To follow up his insights into the human brain, Dr. Friston has turned his mathematical mind to other questions of life and consciousness, such as the distinction between living and not-living, the simplest division imaginable between things, and the great challenge of encoding emotional states. We dig into what a soulful robot might look like, and the new class of myths that humans and robots are going to have to write together.
