Ep. 8: Glen Weyl, Ph.D: Alternatives to Technocracy & the Ideology of Artificial Intelligence

In this episode, I speak with Glen Weyl about the ideology of artificial of intelligence, central planning, Communist China, and the problem of technocracy. In a wide-ranging conversation we also talk about collaboration, knowledge and experience, decentralization, individualism, and the Ukranian Genocide—and a number of thinkers including James Scott, Alexis de Tocqueville, Georg Simmel, Joseph Ratzinger, and more. We also discuss subways, coffee, complex society, and problem of ignoring the invisible. It was a lot of fun. Glen is an innovative and very interesting the thinker. He is a political economist and social technologist at the office the Technology Officer at Microsoft. He is also the founder of Radical XChange and the co-author, with Eric Posner, of the book Radical Markets.

The Moral Imagination -  Michael Matheson Miller
The Moral Imagination
Welcome to the Moral Imagination Podcast.
The overarching theme of my podcast is what it means to be a human person and what makes for a meaningful and good life.
We will discuss philosophy of the human person, culture, religion, social philosophy, and many other related topics, like education, learning, economics, food, technology, artificial intelligence, and intellectual history. My goal is to interact with ideas and people whose work I find challenging, and intellectually and socially important.
