S2 Ep9 - The Quantum Question
S2 Ep9 - The Quantum Question
In our world, you flip a coin and it comes up either heads or tails. But in the spooky quantum world – that’s everything from a single atom all the way up to a small virus – that coin can come up both heads AND tails, depending on how you read it. So which is it? Heads? Tails? Both? Neither?

Welcome to the strange world of quantum computing where this both-true-and-false ‘superposition’ allows quantum computers to vastly outperform their ‘classical’ peers (such as the one in your smartphone). At least, that’s the theory. Quantum computers are so unstable they tend to self-destruct before we can get them to run a program!

Researchers Claire Edmunds and Virginia Frey from the University of Sydney’s Quantum Control Laboratory join us to explore this new quantum frontier: The deeper you go, the weirder it gets over the next billion seconds.

Is daily augmented reality closer than we think? 

Back in July 2016, 'Pokémon Go' opened the doors to the brave new world of augmented reality - an 'overnight success' fifty years in the making. With companies like Magic Leap and Facebook working hard to create augmented reality ‘spectacles’, the next billion seconds will see us put our smartphones down and placing the screen over our eyes instead. But who will be controlling our new, 'improved' reality?

The power of artificial intelligence combined with the eternal surveillance of the smartphone made a monster out of Zuck’s social network - but has it divided us more than it united us? How are people using this social network to spread fake news? How is fake news being weaponised to change the way we vote?

Like artificial intelligence, virtual reality (VR) is one of those twenty-year ‘overnight success’ stories. For longer than that, VR pioneer Tony Parisi has been probing the boundaries of computer graphics, interactivity and illusion to create the next generation of technologies that immerse us in the experiences of new worlds. He tells us why VR has finally come of age - and what’s coming next, as ‘augmented reality’ integrates ‘consensual hallucinations’ into our daily lives.

The Next Big Thing always promises to be the cure for all our ails - but inevitably the high promises tarnish and all our best efforts fall back to earth. For as long as we’ve had technology, we’ve believed in its capacity to craft a perfect world - even though we ourselves are far from perfect. Author and philosopher Erik Davis has spent twenty years dissecting our attitudes toward technology, utopia and belief - and writes about a future where we ‘wise up’ enough to understand the human value of our imperfections.

We talk to Sydney City Councillor Jess Scully about how best to grow a ‘world city’ like Sydney over the next billion seconds - and what it means to have a political career in a time when every citizen has social media to amplify their voice, their beliefs - and their anger.

Solar power cost $100 per kilowatt hour when energy futurist Ramez Naam entered the world. Last year, the UAE signed a 20-year contract for solar power at four thousandth the cost. For Ramez Naam it’s no longer a question of if renewables take over, it’s a matter of when - and the data proves it. Energy has been mixed with politics from the beginning - so over the next billion seconds, how do we talk ourselves out of our coal culture and into a sustainable future? Ramez Naam makes a convincing case for a future where we profit from the sun.

S2 Ep1 - Where The Truth Lies

It’s growing increasingly difficult to know where the truth lies. We’ve gotten very good at our electronic fakery - from Photoshop and ‘Deep-Fakes’ to synthetic audio of former U.S. President Barack Obama so accurate it’s indistinguishable from the real thing. All of this feeds into a growing online community which instantly separates into tribes then tunes out any competing with a cry of “fake news!”. Series Two of The Next Billion Seconds takes a look at the intersection of technology, truth and our future, beginning with frequent guest John Allsopp, revealed in the ways he teaches his children the spirit of inquiry, to help them discover where the truth lies.

Special Ep - 3 Days To (Alpha)GO
Special Ep - 3 Days To (Alpha)GO
The latest in A.I. | For thousands of years, amateurs and professionals alike have dedicated themselves to the ancient Chinese board game Go. This week, Google's artificial intelligence group, DeepMind, unveiled a program so smart, it mastered the game in just 3 days, without any human help and only the rules as a guide. In this special episode, Mark explains how AlphaGo Zero didn't stop there, it then hit 2 more milestones, one at 21 days and another no one thought possible in just 40 days. This new benchmark in Artificial intelligence demonstrates how freeing machines from the limits of human knowledge shows us just how smart they can become without us.

S1 Ep5 - The Future Of Learning
In an era of Google being available at the touch of your fingers, do we even need teachers, libraries and librarians any more? The problem is Google will only tell you what you ask it. So if you don't know what you don't know, what is our path to new learning? Who can you talk to about making sense of all the information you're discovering? What if a librarian could help you decipher the world of information overload? State Library of Victoria CEO Kate Torney describes a new role for the library, where we learn to turn information into understanding.

S1 Ep4 - Tales of Autonomy
Technology now gives cows the ability to milk themselves on their own schedule. However, what we learnt about the cows once they had this choice goes far beyond just their ability to yield milk. Doctor Genevieve Bell, a former VP of Intel and currently a professor in anthropology at ANU joins Mark in a conversation about tracking. From house cats leading secret lives to robot vacuum cleaners that spy on us, and a whole world where we are not the only ones calling the shots.

S1 Ep3 - Cities Of Sharing
Can tech connect us to each other in ways more than just socially? How can we be connected with the things in life we actually need - a car to drive at short notice, a drill to do some home handiwork, even food & vegetables for dinner. How can tech easily connect us with everyday necessities to make living easier, more efficient and even cheaper?
Sharing cities expert Darren Sharp tells us how we'll make the most of the 'stuff, space, and skills' that surround us in a century that will be more urban - and more shared - than ever before.

S1 Ep2 -Apps, Data and a Connected World That's Simply Trying To Help
Apps are already using our personal data to help organise our way through an ever demanding world. Sometimes it can be very helpful, other times it can come across as a little creepy.

Mark and service & experience designer Dr Andy Polaine explore how much data we are prepared to hand over to Google, Apple & Facebook to receive a better service. What does the world will look like after these companies know more about us than we know about ourselves? How should we be handling our own data and privacy over the next billion seconds?
