Fantastic Listen on where wer are going

I love this stuff.
It was quick and topical. Tech is advancing us and the debates that go with it, keeps us human.
Tech has changed so much in the last 20 years and has altered live quickly.
The arguments about the Terminator, the loss of jobs, the new horizon. Good stuff to listen and think about.

Bring on the AI - I love this it!

informative

I've enjoyed the topics discussed and it's worth listening to. My only complaint is that some of the dialog is very difficult to hear and understand.

interesting info, just too little details

it is a very interesting topic,but just too short and not enough details. It would be great to listen to an expanded remake of the same subject.

Surprising Extent AI is Being Used

This was an interesting look at AI in several fields including journalism, healthcare, banking, art and music. The extent to which AI is being used may surprise you. Journalist White interviews experts in several fields to discuss implications and more. A thought provoking listen.

Fantastic Series!

Interestingly, I used the voice dictation on my iPhone to generate the title and it originally put “Fantastic Siri’s” and then resisted my efforts to change it.

This was an excellent series created and narrated by the author which I enjoyed hearing. It was very informational and riveting in the extreme. And, I suppose it must be said, a bit frightening.

A radio program converted to a podcast

It’s an ok experience; I would just not pay for it again. It’s like the white noise radio program that is on in the background while you are doing other things...or at the doctor’s office. Content is shallow.
There’s plenty of fake news presented as fact while criticizing fake news. That’s an annoyance. The biggest challenge was some of the episodes were difficult to listen to-in particular if it was broadcasting through a Bluetooth speaker...better production required.
Overall, if it were just in the radio, I guess it would be ok.
