Computers have become an ubiquitous part of our lives already, but what’s ahead in the future?

We talk to Manuel Blum, the Bruce Nelson Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University and Fatma Deniz, a PostDoc student at the University of California at Berkeley about whether machines could be conscious and what that would mean.

In Unscience we look at whether their childhood affected decisions made by CEOs.

Later, find out what machine learning and deep learning is, and what it will be used for. We talk Soukayna Mouatdid a Ph.D. student from the University of Toronto, and Fred Morstatter, a postdoc student at the USC Information Sciences Institute, as well as Jeff Dean, the head of the Google Brain project.

The Science Inside is presented by Elna Schütz and DJ Keyez. Our production team is Gabriel Chemhuru with technical production by Kutlwano Serame. Original concept by Paul McNally.
