Big Picture Science – Creative Brains

Your cat is smart, but its ability to choreograph a ballet or write computer code isn’t great. A lot of animals are industrious and clever, but humans are the only animal that is uniquely ingenious and creative.

Neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt discuss how human creativity has reshaped the world. Find out what is going on in your brain when you write a novel, paint a watercolor, or build a whatchamacallit in your garage.

But is Homo sapiens’ claim on creativity destined to be short-lived? Why both Eagleman and Brandt are prepared to step aside when artificial intelligence can do their jobs.

Have you ever heard about or read this article about AI: https://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intelligence-revolution-1.html

Can you do a episode on AI that talks about the capabilities of AI? If not, why not? If you can and do, please notify me about it. Thanks!!!!!
