Transatlantic Cable Podcast


For the 297th edition of the Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Ahmed and I discuss a lot of stories that center around the hottest topic on the social web – AI.


Our first story takes a look at how a company is now offering Deep Fakes for under $200… we opine about what could go wrong. From there, we jump over to recent news of Geoffrey Hinton quitting Google.


The move from Hinton is on the heels of him questioning the uninhibited growth and development of AI – without looking as to what could go wrong. While this adds fuel to the fire, we stop our cynicism of AI and look at some research from our colleagues at Kaspersky. In this research, our team takes a look at whether or not ChatGPT can successfully determine phishing links.


To close out the podcast, we discuss a FYI for folks in term of some zero days actively being used on major tech companies and why you need to patch now.
