Richard’s most recent book, Future Minds: The Rise of Intelligence from the Big Bang to the End of the Universe, is a terrific read. He explores the rise of intelligence over deep time, and posits that we are adding artificial or biological intelligence to this continual evolution. We, and the universe, get more intelligent over time. In this compelling presentation to the Seattle Town Hall series Richard explores the future of intelligence.
