Break the Binaries: Unreality

Listen on

Episode notes

“From chatbots and virtual assistants to self-driving cars and smart homes, AI is becoming an increasingly pervasive presence in our lives, raising questions about privacy, ethics, and the future of work.” 


So pervasive that the sentence you just read wasn’t written by a human. It was written by Chat GPT, an AI chatbot.  


In today’s episode, we’re bringing you three stories about the boundaries between machines and humans, the real and virtual. 


It's the first episode of our new series, Break the Binaries. Over the next four weeks, we’ll explore the intersections that blend, blur, or break society’s binary codes. 


These stories were produced in collaboration with All the Best mentors for the Science Gallery’s new show, an immersive exhibition about breaking binaries which is open now.
