My Projects

The Deepthought Network

The Deepthought Network

In Douglas Addams’s novel “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” a supercomputer named Deepthought answered “The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything” The answer aside, this is an open forum to explore the ethical questions raised by such machines.

My Clubs
