We kick off today’s show with a quick recap of CES 2017. Then we hear about a couple of cool projects. Helen Cho will join us to tell us about this month’s Startup Grind meetup, which includes a wildcard East Meets West pitch competition. Then, with the official kick off of the Ala Wai Challenge, Matt Gonser from Sea Grant returns to share the details. Then, after the break, we talk to futurist Jim Dator and ICS Professor David Chin about artificial intelligence, a topic that is getting a lot of attention — not only in its implementation, but also in the impact that it will have on the future of work.

Episode 365: Strong A.I. – Aug 26, 2015


First up, we’ll hear about two upcoming events. Meli James is on the line to tell us about tomorrow’s Hawaii Venture Capital Association lunch panel focused on the energy sector. Then Poni and Brandon Askew join us to preview the Makers and Tasters event coming up in Kakaako. Finally, for the rest of the hour, we’ll explore the state-of-the-art in “Artificial Intelligence.” Beyond Siri, Cortana, and Alexa, what will “Strong AI” do for us? We’ll do some deep thinking with Chris Sullivan and Jeffrey Watumull from Oceanit on this topic.
