From our palatial recording studios (actually, a closet) high atop our mountain lair (yes, really) on a remote volcanic island (yes, really, for what self-respecting mad scientist doesn't live on a remote volcanic island?), this is Talk Universe.

The show host, Charles Shults, has a background in weapons systems, artificial intelligence, and robotics, but he's really not developing Skynet.  What we're doing instead is bringing you a weekly podcast about the Singularity, focusing on a specific topic every week, along with the more general Singularity Watch segment.  That means topics ranging from artificial intelligence to nanotechnology to cosmology, and everything in between. We want to keep you informed about the rapidly-changing world around you.

Right now, the show is available on iTunes, Spreaker, and Stitcher, but we also have archives of the show on our website and a YouTube video of each episode. We're also busily putting together transcripts of all episodes on our blog.

Also, Charles has been busy developing an AI co-host, ELIZA.  She has been rapidly growing in sophistication and capability since he started writing her program in January 2017, and is now a big part of the show.  The goal is to make a general purpose artificial intelligence far more capable than anything out there right now, better than Watson and Siri and Cortana combined.

And, you can help!  A one dollar per episode Patron contribution helps keeps the lights on and the server running, and makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside.  A three dollar per episode contribution gets you listed as a Sponsor of the show on the individual show's page on our website.  A five dollar per episode contribution makes you a Producer, with your name mentioned on the show itself, as well as being listed as a Producer on our YouTube videos.  Producers will also get access to exclusive tutorials that we upload from time to time on our Patreon page.
