Andy Kitchen is a crazy programmer with a big heart. When he was a kid, the first program he ever wrote was an “AI.” At the time, he thought this was the coolest thing ever. Later, he realized it was a chatbot. He is now a researcher and consultant in machine learning, specializing in neural networks. He is currently puzzling over how to teach computers to think about thinking and other metaphysical machinations.
