In this episode:
1. AI recruiting and bias. Personnel recruitment and selection travels fast towards the increasingly massive use of tools that claim to be AI-based, but contain very little artificial intelligence and moreover full of bias. With the added aggravation of a daunting lack of transparency.
2. Surveillance with Ring. Amazon's smart video intercom, would represent the largest surveillance network on the planet, to which law enforcement would have warrantless access in the US. This sparks controversy and legitimate fears, which I'll tell you about.
3. Five hundred years of Captcha. To fill out the famous tests that prove you are human and not a bot, it takes 32 seconds on average, which for all users in the world is equivalent to a mountain of time. Cloudflare proposes an alternative solution.
4. The third thumb. A team of scientists teaches a group of volunteers to use a prosthetic thumb and discovers how the brain creates an image of it to integrate it into its functionality and adapt behavior. That's what happens when engineers and neuroscientists get together.
5. Patent Troll. In the USA finally a first case against an operator that uses its patents to make mass predatory lawsuits and close profitable economic deals to its benefit. Meanwhile, Europe is watching.
