  1. (video is still being processed on youtube, so it’ll be live in a few hours. gotta crunch those bits!)

  2. New Favorite Quote “Sounds like something right out of a video game simulation” Norm17:25 , OMG, I am going to try and say this as much as possible.

  3. yep. Thanks for clarification. They do sometimes offer public tours of the collections but it is rare. The Smoot is my favorite thing down there.

  4. Hey guys – Thanks for the great content every week!

    A friend of mine is running a startup doing some cool stuff with photogrammetry and VR down here in NZ – you can check out some of their sample stuff on their Facebook page – might be an interesting topic to cover in a future episode 🙂

  5. Re: Other applications of AI Kill Switch

    I think Kishore raises a very good point about other applications. This is essentially forcing the “learning” algorithm to focus away from a threatening set of ideas or learning. So, once it starts to learn about something bad (oh, I dunno, nuclear weapons or enslaving mankind or something) then we redirect it to obsess on something else like Romanian Postage Stamps of the 19th century. It’s like distracting a noisy toddler. But, understanding how to do that means understanding “attention” and context, and is really important to AI in general.

  6. Please don’t change the theme music 🙂 Though, I will agree that the interstitial bits are great.

  7. The Giant Bombcast has changed their theme music multiple times throughout the years, and their original is still the best. Please, don’t change the theme music. The dubstep one is fine for silly occasions, but don’t change it permanently, I beg you.
