Cellar Door Skeptics #98: Is Artificial Intelligence predicting our sexuality?

Ever wondered if Cellar Door Skeptics talked about AI? Well this episode the duo take on an economist article that examines AI ability to predict your sexuality. That is right folks, this article talks about a soon to be published journal that use already existing methods to try and determine what sexuality you are. Also on the agenda for this episode is a discussion the future of evolution an article NPR covered about a new bookcalled “Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, And The Future Of Evolution” by Biologist Jonathan Losos professor at Harvard. They continue the journey talking about the new movie IT and if IT lived up to the standards of the book and the old movie. The episode closes out looking at a study about the 2015 Reddit ban on some of the most hateful subreddits on their website. Chris Squared will investigate whether this worked or if hate speech continued to flow on other subreddits.
