Ep. 079 - Discussing GPT-3 and the Twitter cropper bias controversy

September 28, 2020

In this episode, Bob & Kevin welcome our first paid sponsor - https://baty-barr.media to the show... well, technically, Josh has been our producer, editor, and engineer for a few episodes now, but this week he PAID US! Then, of course, we paid him to produce this week's show... LOL

Anyway, back to the episode description... Bob & Kevin discussed the recent tweets and discussions around the twitter cropper and racial bias and then shifted to the main topic of conversation GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) - a language-based General AI. Take a listen and find out all the ways it has been used thus far in a limited beta program and get our thoughts on where this tech might be headed.

Ep. 078 - Thoughts on the Netflix documentary “The Social Dilemma”

September 14, 2020

In this episode, Bob & Kevin discuss the newly released, Netflix, documentary "The Social Dilemma"  (https://www.netflix.com/title/81254224). If you have not watched it, we strongly encourage you to do so. Topics covered range from AI to social engineering and the impact that social media has on our world today and its threat to freedom as we know it.

Shortly after the show was recorded, this article was posted to Medium and we think it adds some great flavor to the discussion: https://medium.com/@jeff_seibert/the-mechanics-and-psychology-behind-the-social-dilemma-719d618aa8ce

Ep. 054 - Snowden speaks recap of Joe Rogan Experience #1368 with Edward Snowden and the implications of mass surveillance

October 30, 2019

Well, since everyone on the planet appears to be talking about Edward Snowden, we thought it was time that we weighed in. Bob & Kevin both recently listened to Mr. Snowden as a rare, remote guest on the Joe Rogan Experience (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efs3QRr8LWw) so we had to talk about the episode and a bunch around mass surveillance, our darn cell phones and how facebook just ruins everything for all of us!

We also discussed how the US government is basically in a "no lose" situation with Snowden and that Ed is basically in a "no win".

Of course, we discussed the area in the Snowden interview where he brought up aliens... and we had thoughts!

We looked back at our most favorite and our least favorite episodes - let us know what you want to hear more of in our next 50! https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow

In honor of the newly announced Matrix 4, Bob & Kevin tackle the tough (and trippy question) 'How do we know we are not living in a simulation or the Matrix already?'

We did a little bit of research (see links below), but mostly we just had our minds blown by things like "The Mandela Effect" and the "fact" that maybe Sinbad did not star as a genie in the movie Shazzaam in the 1990s... what the heck!

Anyway, we hope you like this one... peep our research links below, and let us know what you think!
