My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is…Google Magenta, which was created by Douglas Eck to help artists and musicians extend their aesthetic processes. 

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which…helps me get through complicated social interactions.

My worst AI nightmare is…that as we come to a deep understanding of it, we realize that we do not have free will.

The future of AI needs…a better theory of the mind and understanding of consciousness.
