Fully Automated Science, Cyborg Scientists, Wolfram Institute, & Ducks

James Boyd
Wolfram Institute

James Boyd co-founded the Wolfram Institute together with Stephen Wolfram in order to advance physics, mathematics, and other scientific disciplines through the strategic use of computational technology.

In this podcast, Philipp and Carla dig a little deeper into James' views on a future in which science is done automatically. What will that look like? What's the role of humans in this future? Oh, and what in the world is a cyborg scientist?! They discuss trans humanism, personal growth, and spirit animals.

This conversation is a follow-up to James' Future of Science Seminar. Watch the recording here.
