Episode 31 – What if we could upload our Consciousness?

Intel Inside…

Reversing the process aging has always been a driving force in the advancement of technology, and one of the leading ideas towards immortality is the concept of moving our mind to a digital state.  Can uploading our mind to a computer give us the ability to live indefinitely, or is the human brain so complex that we can never teach computers to read, interpret, and copy our ‘selves’ to digital storage?

Episode 30 – What if the events of the Mega Man/Mega Man X universe actually happened?

Childhood ruined? Or Childhood got waaay more awesomer?

We have a fun/interesting one for you this episode guys.  The sprawling and surprisingly deep lore of the classic video game series, Mega Man.  It’s a subject near and dear to Jbats’ heart, one which a lot of people would agree needed exploring.  We use that lens to explore the idea of what would happen if robots became self-aware and the ethical worries that might evoke.  So get cozy, diagnostics on this new model are gonna take some time to learn how hard it is to be human…
