Last Show Recap

Artifical Intelligence & Virtual Reality

In the first half of the program, host Jimmy Church (email) welcomed researcher Jason Martell, who discussed how ancient cultural beliefs were tied to the procession of the equinox and how this concept of a vast cycle of time can inform modern humans about what's coming.

In the latter half, conceptual artist and researcher Mark McCandlish shared his story of working as an illustrator of classified projects for the military-industrial complex. He recounted a tale of intrigue, secrets, and technology, along with detailed information on the physics and technological mechanisms of an Alien Reproduction Vehicle (ARV) with an anti-gravity propulsion system called the "Flux Liner."

Artifical Intelligence & Virtual Reality

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - February 5, 2006
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Charles Shults III, Charles Ostman

Aerospace and defense systems developer Sir Charles Shults revealed the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence and virtual reality. Artificial brains that combine biological and computer elements are being developed, as well as 'robotic animals' such as live rats that can be remote controlled to search wreckage, he reported.

Under development by Honda and GM are "self-driving" cars capable of maintaining speeds while driving between the road lines, he said. By 2025, Shults expects that humans will no longer be involved in warfare as their battles will be conducted exclusively by machines. Within five years, he believes fighter jets will be remotely piloted.

The jacked-in reality of The Matrix is not far off, with electrodes and implants able to create virtual sensations and environments, said Shults. And as these interfaces become linked the Internet, even more possibilities will open up, including "on demand" virtual sexual experiences. Further down the road, he foresees "mind uploading" where a duplicate copy can be made of a person's brain, that will act and feel as we do. These minds might also be merged together for communal experiences, he suggested.

Energy Alternatives

First hour guest, technological trends advisor Charles Ostman discussed energy alternatives such as hydrogen. Carbon nanotube technology could be used as a way to store molecular hydrogen in cars, he noted. In the short term, he believes it would be best to offer drivers three alternatives—gas, electric and hydrogen. Ostman also said he's become involved in the GreenSavvy.net community.
