Hi Julia! I wanted to ask you about something … 😊

Today 17:08   

Julia

Hello John! Ask away, I hope I can help 😉                                            

Today 17:08

John

Your input on the historical side was really useful for our articles

Today 17:09   

Julia

Oh, I’m happy to hear that! Thanks!  😊                                                 

Today 17:09

John

And the articles did get a lot of good reactions, so …

Today 17:10   

John

We were wondering if you would be willing to collaborate on a new one …?

Today 17:10   

Julia

Yes! Absolutely! What would it be about exactly?                                 

Today 17:11

John

Well, we noticed a lot of people have trouble understanding AI

Today 17:11  

John

What it is, what it can and cannot do, how it ties in to algorithms, and robots

Today 17:11  

Julia

Wouldn’t you rather need someone like Sam for that?                       

Today 17:12

John

Maybe, but we wanted to see if we can clear up some things by looking at the history of AI

Today 17:13   

Julia

Aha, yeah that is a little bit more up my alley indeed 😅                    

Today 17:14

John

That’s what we thought! So, are you in? 😄

Today 17:14   

Julia

Yes, definitely. I still have quite a bit of material left over that didn’t really fit in the previous articles.

Today 17:15

John

That’s very good, but this time it’s not about sci-fi…

Today 17:15   

Julia

Right, but as we were comparing science and sci-fi I came across a lot of interesting ideas.

Today 17:16

Julia

People were trying to mechanize thought for a long time already …

Today 17:16

John

Ideas like that would indeed fit well, I think.

Today 17:17   

Julia

Do you already have an outline for what it should cover exactly?     

Today 17:18

John

Yep, sending it to you now! Let me know what you think. 😉
