With Pelzig on the bench

Episode 3: F***cking Future?

In this episode, Pelzig explores the question of what will actually become of humans when AI, robots and superintelligence knock Homo Sapiens off his pedestal: for the “crown of creation,” perhaps the greatest slight of all. This time, Erwin Pelzig invites the discontinued model human to take a seat on his bench to give free rein to fears, frustrations, but also ideas: People who fear that robots will do their jobs better than they do. Pelzig asks himself: How can the future core competencies of humans be redefined? And what makes us human in the first place, if it’s not reason? What makes us indispensable – despite increasingly intelligent machines?
