I don’t know about you, but I spend at least two hours every week on the phone and screaming into automated phone systems, “Operator! Operator! Representative! …Human! Let me talk to a Human!”
This experience on its own makes me very apprehensive regarding the use of Artificial Intelligence in any way, shape, or form.
If you’ve read any Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, or even older, Karl Capek, you know one thing: That all robots are not to be trusted and they hate humanity!
Of course we really can’t blame AI and Robots for this hatred. If Humans are the creators of these machines, and we’re are one of the most screwed-up, self-destructive species on the planet, then it’s no big surprise we’d create something as equally funny in the head.
It’s been a while since I released a new podcast episode so I thought I have fun with this one. This episode is dedicated to the hilarious insanity of our future robotic dystopia.
Here’s a list of the segments on this podcast:
0:00 - Intro
0:25 - The future of computers
1:45 - AI Insult Comic

I hope you enjoyed the show. A new cartoon will be heading your way shortly.
