    AI is getting better, and it's finding its way into more parts of our lives with each passing day. And talking about the future artificial intelligence has become a surefire way to spawn a thousand debates about the future, and nature, of humankind ourselves. Our guest today, Ken McLeod, is an award winning science fiction author whose work dives deep into the relationship between man and machine. His latest book, "The Corporation Wars: Emergence" is the final volume in an acclaimed trilogy whose cast of characters includes sentient robots, computer AIs that oversee Earth from afar, and, of course, emulated human minds running in digital simulations.
