Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is going before the European Parliament today to answer questions about the social network’s privacy policies. The event will be streamed live on the interent from the EP website, which means everyone can watch and see how it compares to the recent U.S. Congressional hearings where he also testified. The live stream starts at 12:20 PM eastern time.
Warning, this one went long: Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet discuss what Apple’s share buybacks say about Apple’s future. They also weigh WhatsApp’s founder leaving Facebook, and what it says about Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. They go over when diving into Google Duplex, a demonstration that was as awesome as it was devoid of real value.
Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet take a look at Facebook’s shadow profiles on people who don’t have accounts, and how those accounts may impact online privacy legislation.
You don’t need a Facebook account for the social network service to have a profile on you, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that under oath during a Congressional hearing.
The argument is: Does Apple actually care about your privacy? Mr. Zuckerberg would like you to believe that Apple’s privacy stance is just a marketing tactic. I don’t agree.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Apple CEO Tim Cook have been trading public barbs on privacy, and Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet discuss the public tiff. They also discuss Apple’s hiring of Google’s former head of artificial intelligence and what it might mean for Siri (hint: good things!). They cap the show with a look at what it would take to make HomeKit the premier home automation platform.
If Bryan Chaffin is reading Mark Zuckerburg correction, the Facebook CEO thinks privacy is a luxury only the rich can afford.
For years, smartphone customers have happily glossed over the fact that massive dossiers were being collected about their private life, interests, and behavior. Will there finally be regulatory reform?
We tend to speak about Artificial Intelligence in terms of the pinnacle of its potential evolution, and that’s a problem.
