You should interview Dr RayJay
Thanks for the suggestion, Tara. We’ll definitely look into it.
My name is Yonna, and I’m a student in the twelfth grade. I am writing because I would like to volunteer for this position during the school year. I’m a space enthusiast and plan to study aerospace engineering after high school. Therefore, I am interested and would be happy to volunteer to work twice a week for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and, if possible, even 2 1/2 hours a session.
I truly enjoy the format and substance of your podcasts. In my opinion, Star Spot is the best podcast on scientific astronomical issues. I wonder if is there any way to do a podcast on whether there are any efforts or developments by governments or private companies in developing super artificial intelligence, such as IBM’s Watson, for space exploration? In other words, are there any companies such as Space X, IBM, Lockheed, or others developing or planning to develop super artificial intelligent machines that have the ability to learn massive amounts of astronomical data, synthesis said data and provide suggestions on astronomical locations for possible life? Are there any plans to send any of these technologies into space in order to observe, learn and make decisions as they acquire new data while in space?
Thank you Eddie for the kind compliments. We appreciate the support.
That’s an excellent idea for an interview subject. I’m going to talk with my producer Sabina and we’ll see if we can find a guest to address that topic. If you have anyone in mind please let us know!
I just spent several minutes putting a thoughtful, skeptical comment on this when I could have been sleeping.
It was marked as spam and disappeared instantly. Not very nice. I won’t go to the effort if you don’t want me.
I am very sorry to hear that. No one on our team flagged your post as spam, so I don’t understand how this happened. I am not able to find the post. Is it possible there was some error in the posting process?
