  • This week on Technotopia I talk to Chris Boos, the creator of a bot that can play FreeCiv, a Civilization clone.
  • His solution demonstrates the power of machine learning and, wildly, has beat multiple humans and the game.
  • Boos’ company, Arago, specializes in building tools that build themselves.
  • Humans can show his bots how to do something – manage a piece of software, for example – and the bots can write scripts automatically.
  • Technotopia is a podcast about a better future by John Biggs.

Boos’ company, Arago, specializes in building tools that build themselves. Humans can show his bots how to do something – manage a piece of software, for example – and the bots can write scripts automatically. He is bullish on AI on the whole but still thinks we have a long way to go before we hit a truly intelligent future.
