Leadership and Artificial Intelligence

Two new issues of Shrinkrapradio were published shortly one after the other. Dr. Dave is keeping us busy.

#125 - The Psychological Roots of Leadership, brings us an interview with Stephen H. Baum, author of the 2007 book, What Made Jack Welch Jack Welch: How Ordinary People Become Extraordinary Leaders. Baum analyzed the profiles of successful executives, interviewed them and made an inventory of what characterizes the true leaders among us. In short he found out how people with great leadership qualities were usually pushed by a family member in their youth, generally are willing to take more risks than others. Take the plunge and try to survive. Have fewer self-confidence issues and are of a sincere and transparent moral fiber.

#126 - Artificial Life and Artificial Intelligence is the third live recorded podcast, with Jerry Trumbule and Artificial Life and Artificial Intelligence specialist Tom Barbalet. Barbalet is pushed by Jerry to comment on the capacity of computers; are they about to become smarter than people? Tom thinks this has already happened, he claims there are very few fields computers perform less than human beings.
