Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Episode 283 kicks off with the recent (good news) story that ransomware gangs earnings are down by quite a bit from last year – turns out that people are starting to treat backups properly and are refusing to pay – great news for 2023!  Following that, the team look at troubling news, this time from the crypto-currency world, with a story looking at the recent collapse of Genesis.

Moving from crypto to the world of fake news, a recent study has shown that the reason people share fake news is perhaps more complex than previously thought. To wrap up, the team discuss concerning news around ChatGPT and exams, with a professor running the AI through an exam for Medical Licenses and Business Degrees and it turns out it can pass them both.  Should teachers and professors be worried? Time will tell it seems.
