#TheFeed: BigBrain; Amazon Unbound; & Robot Ethics
by Amber MacArthur on May 18, 2021
TF262: BigBrain’s CEO Nik Bonaddio joins us to chat about the app that allows you to compete against the world in live trivia contests for real-money prizes. Plus, we talk to Dr. Kate Darling, a Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab, about her new book The New Breed: What Our History with Animals Reveals about Our Future with Robots. Also, author Brad Stone reveals how money, sex, power (and more), are covered in his new book Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire. In Socially Speaking, we discuss whether Facebook’s new feature, the “read before you share warning”, is a good idea and question if it will change the amount of misinformation that appears on the platform.
