Transatlantic Cable Podcast

The latest episode of the Transatlantic Cable kicks off once again with a discussion around A.I – this time, looking at how it could soon be used by musicians to help them create music – but concerns grow that it could one day be used to create music (much like it can now be used to create art). From there the team discus how a pair of developers have created an A.I that generates lifelike police portraits sketches, and it’s got privacy and civil liberty experts worried. 

Moving away from A.I to something more concrete, the team talk about the recent proposal from the U.K government to ban the use and sale of encrypted phones – often used by criminals to circumnavigate prying eyes.
