159 – Free Will And Machine Learning

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast!

We don’t have a lot of news this week, so instead we engage in a long and in-depth discussion about machine learning, the origin of creativity, the notion of free will, sentience, and more (all inspired by Adam Neely’s analysis of Google’s Bach Harmonizer)! Also Jordan Rudess‘s solo album, The Black Dahlia Murder self-reflecting, Trivium‘s remake of Pillars of Serpents, new music by Amon Amarth and Fleshgod Apocalypse, and this weird headline about Limp Bizkit. Then we do an extended discussion of Jordan Peele’s new movie Us. Full spoilers, which we give a warning about, but yeah. Enjoy!
