In today’s audio essay we’re focused on Artificial Intelligence.  Entrepreneur, incubator director and community developer Scott M. Graves is pondering the future, more specifically how we build a better one.

‘Could we create a great tipping point where a society, devoid of the means for cultivating its great creative class warriors, cease to provide the know-how to create more ‘tech’ to feed the AI revolution. How Ironic.’  

‘Revolution?  Or de-volution.  It’s for us to decide.’
