#BoycottIBM they have been censoring free speech like China! Big tech China censoring tactics have no place, in America! SHAME on you IBM! IBM is Anti-American & anti-free speech! 👎

Really annoying how Strickland keeps interrupting the female co-host. Like ALL the time. Every episode. You can tell she feels rushed to say anything in anticipation of him bowling over her.

Disappointed in the quality of communication on behalf IBM. Questions were not answered concisely. This was an opportunity for the speakers to outline how technology can help in health crises like we are currently experiencing with COVID-19. Eg. How it can help identify geographic, racial and socioeconomic disparity in chronic disease, health care and health outcomes. When asked how the average person can help... the IBM speaker circled back to their data and trust monologue but didn’t explain what he means by that and how it translates to the role of the average person. I think he intended to convey that the quality of the information that people provide to their healthcare practitioners determines the level of quality of the data technological companies have the work with in their modelling to ultimately identify potential solutions. He needed to use more plain speak and be clear. Both IBM reps were clearly intelligent and could’ve offered more substantial value add for the audience. I’d love to see this entire interview re-done in a more clear and concise manner. The interviewer tried several times but just couldn’t get straight answers.

I wish 2019 would bring us a biological interface with humans and computers that'd be nice then we could do away with the whole virtual reality glasses and just plug ourselves in like the Matrix I'm really hoping for that to happen sooner than later
