An audio accompaniment to a five-part OZY series that explores the Big Ideas shaping our tech-driven future. Click here to read parts one, two, three and four.

This week, Sanjena Sathian looks ahead to the future of technology — and not just to the next apps or cute gadgets. Instead, she investigates the new programmers, product managers, mathematicians and researchers who are writing the code and whiteboarding the plans for the science and technology that will govern our future. Their questions? Pretty heavy stuff. Which is why you might call these people the next generation of philosophers.

Today, in the first installment of OZY’s Reporter’s Notebook, Pooja Bhatia chats with her about some of the behind-the-scenes tidbits that didn’t make it into the series, and about the wider field of artificial intelligence, long life and the future of belief.
