About Us

This is a podcast about a sort of “enchantment” our tech has cast over us. We want to get under the covers a bit. What are the boundaries set around technology? Who sets them and why? We will explore how much we should trust these boundaries setters to make good decisions for us. We ponder where machines ‘’quantify us” in great detail for extraordinary insight. And we consider where this quantified human exhibits directed or even controlled behavior. With a dab of irreverence, we’ll conduct this investigation through a series of discussions, thought experiments, and rich examples.

COVID & Supply Chain Create a Stage for Innovation & Ethics

Part 1 of a 2 part exploration of the Supply Chain of tomorrow. Because it’s a source of cost and customer / employee / partner experience, supply chain is a significant driver of the decisions made by the company’s we encounter every day. The focus it rightly receives results in a merger of physical and digital. This focus also makes it place for technology and innovation, as well as a stage to display ethics. So a perfect spot for Empathetic Machines!

COVID & Supply Chain Create a Stage for Innovation & Ethics

The Content that Divides Us

Are the platforms biased? Are they censoring and / or inciting? Are they doing weird things? And how should that be addressed— by regulation, a high commissioner, a legion of ombudspeople, AI oversight & technical innovation? Are there lessons from the newsroom of the past? Do we leave this to the tech titans themselves?
