The sunrise of digital media forgery, and the sunset of trust

on Fri, 06/08/2018 - 17:59

2018 - 2020 are going to be years that will be seen in history as the dawn of an era when the only way you can trust what you are hearing / seeing someone say is to see it in-person.  It will be the sunest of the era when you can trust that what you are hearing from a person speaking who is captured and rebroadcast digitally is actually what they said.

This is because the application of machine learning and other artificial intelligence techniques is advancing into areas we (society) have historically taken for granted. Three things combined over the last several days to give me pause.

Angel Invest Boston podcast, with me and Saleh Daher

on Mon, 05/08/2017 - 18:31

I was recently invited by Sal Daher to be interviewed for his Angel Invest Boston podcast series. Sal's series invites various tech angel investors from around the city and asks them a variety of questions about their own background, how their background influences their investment, and about things they commonly see in, and suggest to startup founders.

I am pleased the resulting podcast turned out well. Listen here, or on Sal's website. The entire series is also available on iTunes and Google Play (though it doesn't launch on those services until 10 May.)

I hope you'll listen, and enjoy.
