Pornography in the workplace is costing companies billions in lost productivity each year. Adding filters to a computer network and monitoring internet usage is ineffective because people can simply access the material on their personal devices which could open a company to a lawsuit. So, what can a company do to protect its enterprise? Well, there might be a solution powered by artificial intelligence. Tune in to find out more and visit for resources cited in this podcast.
Should your resume be one page or two? Well, that kind of thinking is soo... 1999. If you want to be in line with what’s happening in 2020 and beyond, start thinking about your biometric resume. What’s a biometric resume you ask? Well, imagine proving you are best qualified person for the job based not on your past experience but instead, your expertise is proven by your brainwave activity. Yeah, that’s coming to an interview near you. Tune in for the details.
Alexa has been a silent and virtual witness to several cases of crimes being committed at home. As a result, police have been calling on Amazon for the audio recordings in hopes of finding irrefutable evidence against suspects. The trend has me wondering, today it is Alexa, but tomorrow…  What other electronic device could be called to testify (so to speak) in the future? I consider the possibilities on this episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast.
Did you know that scientists are close to inventing a pill that can erase your worst memories? It is intended to assist people suffering from PTSD and/or those struggling to get past the memory of a horrific event. Some people see the positive repercussions of using such technology but, I'm very skeptical. What good can come memory manipulation technology? I debate the issue in the 50th episode of "The Jim Stroud Podcast." (Yay!)
A recent article from Scientific American caught my eye, the headline was this - "Social Media Has Not Destroyed A Generation” and immediately, I felt a surge of skepticism. I’ll share some quotes from the article and my opinion in this episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast. | Subscribe to my blog at
Cyborgs Rising

Cyborgs Rising


I read an article recently about Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan, a scientist suffering from motor neurone disease. Rather than give into this disease, Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan is pursuing a truly innovative approach. He has decided to turn himself into a cyborg, something he calls Peter 2.0. I’ll share some details on that and related news, on this episode of "The Jim Stroud Podcast." | Visit for additional resources related to this episode.
Robotic Surgeries are the future! And… they are the present. To be clear, robots are not operating on patients alone in operating rooms; at least not yet. What is happening is surgeons are operating in-person and remotely, on patients with the help of robotic arms. Some people this think is a wonderful development and other people are like... meh, whatever, and think the traditional methods of scalpels in hand is still best. I’ll go over the pros and cons in this episode. PLEASE RATE & SHARE this podca

I stumbled across this article on Gizmodo and was sucked into reading it by the headline and the first few lines of the article. The headline is “North Face Apologizes for Showing Us the Future of Marketing” and here is a short quote, “This week The North Face pulled off a clever marketing stunt that continues to deliver. Even following the company’s retraction and apology, the glittering underhandedness of the campaign will inspire marketing scum for generations.” Hah! I discuss what happened on this episode.

Do you work in an office or from home? According to a 2017 Gallup study, 43% of Americans report spending at least some time working remotely, so chances are you do some work from home. Depending on who you ask, that’s a good thing. Working from home allows workers the flexibility to maintain that careful work-life balance and companies benefit from the increased productivity. So, working remote is a win-win all around or… is it? (dun, dun, dun…) In this episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” I report on the good and bad of remote work while asking the question, is the future of work at home or at the office? Download the show notes at Support this podcast at —
The demographics of America are rapidly changing and where there are differences there is inevitable conflict. Some of the issues are a result of ignorance to the differences represented in various cultures and as a result, racism rears its ugly head to diverse degrees. I discuss the state of racism in the American workplace and why I think it will become worse in years to come. At the same time, I defend my country because I do not believe it is immutably racist. Tune in for a very thought provoking episode.

Few companies have been under the amount of scrutiny that Facebook has endured. Privacy advocates, free speech supporters and proponents of antitrust legislation can list a myriad of reasons why you should support the hashtag #deletefacebook.

Well, if you stay tuned, I will share some of the reasons why people stay on Facebook as well as some reasons why they should leave. Please rate my podcast series on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

Can I ask you a personal question? Are you lonely? A recent study by CIGNA suggests that you are. They surveyed more than 20,000 U.S. adults -18 years and older and find out that nearly half of Americans sometimes or always feel alone, One in four Americans rarely or never feel as though there are people who really understand them, Two in five Americans sometimes or always feel that their relationships are not meaningful and One in five people report they rarely or never feel close to people. Why is this? I blame social media. Tune in to find out why.   Support this podcast at —
Quite recently, I had the very good fortune of connecting with Swathi Young on LinkedIn the other day. She is the founder of TechNotch solutions, a technology strategy and management consulting company in Washington, DC. Swathi Young helps companies leverage the power of machine learning to solve business problems; for example, fraud detection and customer service intelligent agents. And to her credit, she is quite the expert on AI and a number of emerging technologies.  On the podcast we discussed the part ethics plays in artificial intelligence; especially in relation to autonomous vehicles and facial recognition. With the possibility of bias in AI, how can we safeguard the public from the potential harm of predictive policing? How can job seekers complain about algorithmic discrimination when they are unaware it even exists? And just what is "Explainable AI?" Should companies be for or against it?  Tune in for an interesting and very thought provoking episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast!
