Proof I'm not a robot:
- I race sailboats.
- I spin fire poi.
- I turn wood.
- I teach an led cloud class.
- I phone banked for Bernie.
Proof I am a robot:
- I read 51 nonfiction books in 2015.
- In 2016 I switched to academic papers because they have a - - higher bit rate of Information.
- I taught a 600 level class on machine learning.
- I'm convinced I'm close to making artificial consciousness.

What is going to happen when we automate everything?
How the world could move to a post scarcity society peacefully?
How does the brain work?
How do some of my Republican friends so completely reject reality in their conspiracy theories?
How to make robots mainstream.

sometimes with alcohol.
Sometimes with fire! Muahaha!
I think a great date is making wooden bowls on a lathe.
