The Fermi Paradox II // Where Are All The Aliens?

Where are all the aliens? The universe is too big and too old, why have we not met aliens yet? Do they live in computers? Were they wiped out by an ancient super intelligence? Or are we just to primitive to understand their motives? Whatever the answer is, it is incredibly important for our own future.

Conrad And The Steamplant

Conrad Milster, Pratt Institute’s chief engineer, has worked in the Brooklyn power plant nearly his entire adult life. Starting as a mechanic in 1958, he later became one of only four chief engineers in the plant’s 127-year history, taking over the official duties in 1965. He’s been there ever since.

For the last six decades, Milster (now 79 years old) has lovingly maintained the nineteenth century steam engines that provide heat and hot water to Pratt’s campus. “We have our hands full,” says Milster. “If the plant stops in the winter, Pratt stops.”

Can Robots Be Creative?

In diesem animierten Film untersucht Gil Weinberg das Rätsel der künstlichen Kreativität.

Könnten wir zum Beispiel Maschinen programmieren, die qualitativ hochwertige Musik komponieren? Und wenn wir das tun, ist es dann die Maschine oder der Programmierer, der diese Kreativität hervorbringt?

“People have been grappling with the question of artificial creativity — alongside the question of artificial intelligence — for over 170 years. For instance, could we program machines to create high quality original music? And if we do, is it the machine or the programmer that exhibits creativity? Gil Weinberg investigates this creative conundrum”.

Lesson by Gil Weinberg • Narration by Addison Anderson • Animation by TOGETHER.
