EP070: Will A.I. Eat The World? w/ Academy Award Nominated Producer Peter Martin (2017 Throwback)

Academy Award nominated Producer Peter Martin joins Daniel to talk about politics and technology. Peter is a Creative Futurist who plays in the cross-platform media realm. He is the CEO of VALIS Studios and the Executive Creative Director for SPECTACLE VR.

If there is or ever was a visual technology Peter can tell you about it. He tells Daniel about how AI is already taking over the world, how billionaires plan to immortalize themselves and how disruptive American politics are blurring the lines between reality and comedy.

We are all creators, but it’s easy to lose touch with that ability in our daily lives.
