We Have Concerns

Quantum AI and Tiny Rango | #643

Episode Summary

What if an AI could learn, not by simply doing an activity over and over, but by actually employing creativity? A new quantum computer aims to do just that, and it has Anthony and Jeff wondering what exactly makes intelligence intelligent. Then, a new record for the tiniest reptile ever discovered has been set in the island of Madagascar. Jeff sells Anthony on the idea of getting an itty bitty teeny weeny chameleon as a pet.
