Show Notes

David and I discuss the latest efforts he and his Elemental Cognition team have made to create machines that can understand stories the way humans can and do. The long term vision is to create what David calls "thought partners", which are virtual assistants that can learn and synthesize a massive amount of information for us when we need that information for whatever project we're working on. We also discuss the nature of understanding, language, the role of the biological sciences for AI, and more.
