Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Episode 292 of the Transatlantic Cable Podcast is here! This week, the team talk about aggressive AI and how the DEA have turned Apple AirTags into a surveillance tool against criminals.

Moving on, the team discuss recent news that Nvidia’s CTO thinks that crypto-currencies don’t “bring anything useful for society” – pretty bold words for a business that sold GPU cards to crypto-miners just a few years ago.  To wrap up, discussion moves onto how the US is looking to block the use and sale of commercial spyware – however, there’s a pretty big catch.
