We are currently busy preparing for a Kickstarter launch. One of the requirements is to create a video. So, we are making a trailer by chiseling through past podcasts. It's interesting what happens to context when you remove supporting sentences. Please enjoy Episode 1, AI for everyone, sliced and diced, making it sound even more ominous than the original.

We've taken our first step, made a choice to explore space. So how are we going to do this? We could build a really fast drone, slap a warp drive on it, and hit the launch button. It might take a few episodes, but let's explore that possibility.
Another possibility is to use the tech that already exists. We have no budget, so what can we do for free? Oh yes, ask questions. Space exploration is about answering questions.
Let's see now what would be a good question? Got it!
Are we alone?
So far we've explored Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Smart Manufacturing, Future Cities, self diving cars, and the mindset needed to create the future.
Since this is episode 10, a milestone so to speak, we are now going investigate how to get Deep Space Drones off the ground, and explore the possibility of actually launching drones into space.
Uber is launching driverless cars in Pittsburg later this month.
That’s right, if you pull out your smart phone Uber app, and summon a vehicle, you may find yourself stepping into a self-driving car.
Don’t worry, there will be a human there, supervising, for now.
Most people in Europe, the Americas, and Oceania live in cities.
In Africa and Asia, most people don't live in cities, but rather in rural areas.
All that is about to change. A massive population shift is expected, and billions of people will need a new place to live and work in cities.
Cities in emerging countries must learn how to cope with this mass migration of people.
City leaders are wondering how they can make this sustainable.
The future and availability of cities is a big deal.
Science, city builders, and managers must understand how to model cities as a living entity.
Big Data, machine learning, social media, and Internet of things all play a role.
Industry 4.0 includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things and cloud computing.
New smart factories are being created with cyber-physical systems that virtualize the real world into their own cyber-space. The machines themselves are taught to communicate with each other and make their own decisions.
In this episode, we deconstruct the fourth industrial revolution, look at the challenges they face, how to take advantage of the opportunities the industrial Internet of Things will bring, and how future automation came to be.
