Sam Lieblich © Aaron Rees Sam Lieblich is a writer, neuroscientist and psychiatrist with an interest in AI. His research focuses on the role of the brain in generating the sense of self and place. He works with linguistic and psychoanalytic conceptions of human subjectivity to try to address the scientism of neuroscience, and to explore the interaction/integration of the human subject and the algorithm.

My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… the work of Lauren McArthy which always makes explicit the blurred boundary between the human subject and its algorithms.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… I doubt in 2030 we’ll still be talking about apps as the main paradigm for software.

My worst AI nightmare is… that instead of it rising up to meet us, we will sink down to meet It.

The future of AI needs… to wonder whether it’s really the acts of intelligence that are the most interesting things the mind does in the world, and whether it’s really intelligence that we are hoping to see in our artificial creations.
