Show Notes Episode 160: “Domo Arigato, Mister Roboto”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe is worried he will be replaced by Artificial Intelligence only to discover no robot can process Jameson as efficiently as he can. (Seriously:  Consider Rehab!)

On the show this week we head to the Google IO Conference to learn about all the new products designed to replace humanity on the planet Earth.  (Can’t happen soon enough for us!)  Along the way we learn about Dave’s crippling fear of technology. (His fleshlight malfunctioned and scarred him mentally and physically.

We take a tour through the hellish landscape of customer service phone calls and come out the other side fully convinced humanity does not DESERVE to live. You will also learn all the ways the road to hell is paved with best intentions of people with great ideas. (Think Facebook!)  Then we dive deep into the ethics of Artificial Intelligence and come up with the only possible solution to the problem.  (Hint: Farting Robots).  

Our Sponsor this week is Fast Eddie’s Placement Service, all the frustration of an inept digital assistant with the infuriation of an incompetent human assistant.  We open the show with Sirius Cybernetics Systems and close Hot Breakfast telling us they are NOT a Roboto!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIvejoeX1GI
