Below is an online conversation I had with an old friend… Who just happens to have done professional work with Artificial Intelligence. Yes, I have some very unique friends. Enjoy the conversation!
One clarification from the conversation. Dr. Gan reflected toward the end on how science seeks to arrive at a singularity, but will always struggle to do so. I affirmed his assessment, but my mind got ahead of my words. I shared a reflection on how the nature of science clearly states that things like God and the transcendent are not in the scope of science. A missing link to that transition was Gödel’s incompleteness theorem that states that a “TOE” or a theory of everything is impossible due to the very nature of science.

I also make reference to some of Dr. Gan’s writings in the video. Here are the links if you are interested.
