Freedom of Thought

Freedom of Thought

2019-06-0900:11:42

In the future, will we have the freedom to think as we like without fear of economic or judicial reprisals? I hope so. Yet, recent technological advances give me room to pause. In this episode, I discuss scientific advances that can literally read your mind and create pictures based on your thoughts. Intrigued? If so, prepare to be amazed by the other discoveries I stumbled upon this past week. Science fiction is quickly becoming science fact. Can our laws keep up? What about our personal freedoms? Tune in for a very fascinating episode.Support this podcast at — https://app.redcircle.com/shows/ebc7d2ce-6c88-46bd-80bb-fbe551a8ae60/tip

When was the last time you bought something from Amazon? Last week? Yesterday? Waiting on a package now? No doubt. Amazon is very popular with millions of people and millions of people more have a big love for the company; me included. However, as wonderful as Amazon is, they do have a side of their business that some would consider creepy. In fact, some people say it is getting creepier and creepier, each passing day. Tune in to learn about their experiments with emotion detection, tracking every inch of your body (literally) and the ever controversial facial recognition software - Rekognition. If you don't have a problem with companies gathering data on you because you have "nothing to hide" then, I HIGHLY recommend you listen to this special episode.Support this podcast at — https://app.redcircle.com/shows/ebc7d2ce-6c88-46bd-80bb-fbe551a8ae60/tip

I have a public service announcement for you.  Google saves years of information on purchases you’ve made, even outside Google, and pulls this information from Gmail. It’s complicated to delete this private information, and options to turn it off are hidden in privacy settings. But don’t worry, Google says it values your privacy and won't use this information to sell you ads. Umm.... ok. | Big shout to DuckDuckGo!

Big Brother in the Office

Big Brother in the Office

How far will companies infringe on their worker's privacy for the sake of efficiency? Now, and in the very near future, companies will take corporate surveillance to a whole new level. What I discuss in this podcast goes well beyond reading your emails or monitoring your chats on Slack. Tune in now to see what I mean.This podcast, for the most part, was recorded live at the Hacking HR forum in Atlanta.

Mo' Data, Mo' Problems

Mo' Data, Mo' Problems

If you want to learn something truly fascinating that you might not have considered before, go to your favorite search engine and look up the phrase, " big data is a civil rights issue ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=big+data+is+a+civil+rights+issue&t=brave&ia=web )." As you scan through the search results and glean tidbits of data from the descriptions, or skim the various articles, you will no doubt see that the world is sitting on a powder keg of outrage. Algorithms and automation threaten to divide my country more profoundly than any political unrest around civil war statues, rumors of Russian collusion or fake hate crimes ever could. Indeed, when it comes to racial disparity in terms of opportunity or various life advancements, nothing is more injurious than the unintended consequences of machine learning. When I consider the effects on society and the labor market, I shudder at the pending reality of it all.Just over a year ago, I wrote an article on big data and speculated on the societal implications. I called it “ This is Why Big Data is a Civil Rights Issue ( http://blog.jimstroud.com/2017/08/25/this-is-why-big-data-is-a-civil-rights-issue/ ).” Now, in this podcast, I am revisiting that topic and going a bit deeper in my analysis. This report told in 3 parts is…* BIG DATA, BIG BIAS – Where I explore the unintended consequences of so-called “unbias” algorithms.* BIG DATA, BIG MONEY – Where I look at how much money data brokers are making off of my privacy and the incentive they have to go even further.* BIG DATA, BIG ESCAPE – Where I consider my options, after learning more about my lack of privacy on the internet.Stay tuned, for a *very special report* …Jim / http://jimstroud.comSupport this podcast at — https://app.redcircle.com/shows/ebc7d2ce-6c88-46bd-80bb-fbe551a8ae60/tip

Have you ever been fired from a job before? If so, I imagine it was during an awkward in-person meeting between you, your boss and somebody from the HR department. Today, however, we live in a different era and companies are using machines to fire employees. Don’t believe me? Tune in and I’ll share an example of what may be a sign of things to come.  | Special thanks to ClickIQ for sponsoring this episode.
