So what are Julie and I up to this week? Well, in addition to recording episodes on personhood, milk and mermaids, we also published two exciting episodes that should expand your mind on the topics of human creativity, machine intelligence and the processing power of the human infant. So here are the breakdowns as well as the embedded feeds for each episode.
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Robot When it comes making art most of us operate under a set of rules we learned when drawing, writing or composing music.

Join the conversation on how machines will alter the future of art. Plus, be sure to check out Studio 360's art section as well as my curiosity article "10 Ways Robots Could Replace Humans."
