EUSci Podcast #71
Are you thinking of playing poker for money against a computer? If so, you might want to hold that thought until you hear Producer Chris's account of an all-AI Texas Hold 'em tournament. Our usual dose of biology comes from Jon this week, with news of a method to sequence a baby's genome with only a blood sample from the mother, a technology that could lead to safer prenatal testing methods. Resident animal expert Steph puts her tongue in her cheek for our EUWhat on GPS-enabled sheep, while our discussion looks at a topical question: is psychology a science?
We also have a special treat this week: Producer Chris has been extra busy, roving out to catch self-described 'comedian and geek songstress' Helen Arney and comedy (plus life!) partner Rob Wells, in town for the Edinburgh Festival. Check http://helenarney.com for the song credits, and also look out for our forthcoming Festival Special.
