Whether it’s bitcoin, artificial intelligence, or space travel, London Real covers the increasingly complex world of technology, with guests from Chris Hadfield to Tim O’Reilly.

Showcasing the people behind the technology

Join us as we sit down with Dr. Ben Goertzel, the Founder and CEO of SingularityNET and Chief Science Advisor for Hanson Robotics. He is one of the world’s leading experts in Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), with decades of expertise in applying AI to practical problems like natural language processing, data mining, video gaming, robotics, national security and bioinformatics.

Brian also talks to Geoff Stead, the Head of Mobile Learning for the wireless technology giant Qualcomm. As he explains how touch-screen technology can fundamentally change education, the future of augmented reality and the new Google Glass, and why we as humans must adapt to the inevitable advances in the technology of the future

We also have a fascinating conversation with Imogen Heap, the musician, technologist and creative entrepreneur who has mastered the intersection where innovation and inspiration meet, developing new platforms that break down barriers between technology and the arts, performer and audience, and business and creativity.

What the Future Holds

Andreas Antonopoulos joins Brian Rose to talk about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Seen as one of the world’s foremost cryptocurrency and blockchain experts, Andreas travels the world advocating greater privacy and freedom in our financial lives.

Then there is Tim O’Reilly who is often referred to as “The Oracle of Silicon Valley. Tim has a history of convening conversations that reshape the computer industry. He began producing computer manuals in the late 1970s and he has been early to spot many influential tech trends ever since.

We also talk to Kevin Kelly, the founding executive editor of Wired magazine, and a former editor/publisher of the Whole Earth Review. Kevin came in to chat about how his magazine focuses on the culture of technology, the future of AI, and virtual reality.

Learn from an Astronaut

The legendary Chris Hadfield also came into the studio to talk about what it was like to travel across the solar system and complete a spacewalk. His stories will make you look at the world in a new way and realise how connected and dependent on each other we really are.
