May 29, 2019

This week, Bob & Kevin talk deep fake technology and where they think it is headed. We open the show with audio from a very well known deep fake and begin the conversation with the ability to model audio to generate audio based deep fakes and we spiral down the rabbit hole from there. Take a listen and always feel free to reach out to us on twitter - https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow or drop us an email at [email protected] - be sure to check out the deep fakes we referenced in the show.

Show Notes Galore for this Episode!

We also discussed what facebook might look like in the next five years. That conversation was sparked by this article: https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-15-months-of-fresh-hell/

We also had some discussion around youTube and Twitter regarding content and responsibilities sparked by a tweet from one of our favs - Tim Pool https://twitter.com/Timcast/status/1118140799676506112 - of course this got us talking AI and the Achilles Paradox - https://www.britannica.com/topic/Achilles-paradox

Ep. 030 - Ethics of encryption backdoors and Joe Rogan Experience recap with Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde & Tim Pool

March 8, 2019

Well, in this week's episode, Bob & Kevin kick things off discussing a recent Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode with Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde & Tim Pool because, well, it was an amazing cast on an amazing show. The funny thing is, when we listen to shows like that, we get a TON of validation of our topics for discussion. At about the midway point... we actually broke into the INTENDED topic for the show - encryption backdoors... and the ethics of such things!

The conversation was kicked off by a published paper that Kevin found online and our on-going debate about tech and ethical choices. The paper can be found here: https://digitalcommons.spu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1062&context=honorsprojects and the discussion is in the audio file attached with this episode... so what are you waiting for? Hit the play button already!

Ep. 021 - Remote work habits - good, bad and ugly

Ep. 021 - Remote work habits - good, bad and ugly

October 17, 2018

This episode could be title true confessions of a remote worker... but we thought that was a bit too click bait-ish... who are we kidding... We just thought of it as we were uploading the episode and the artwork was already done! Anyway, in this episode, our two courageous hosts give us a glimpse into the real life struggles of remote work in the 21st century. Frightening tales of killer chairs, bare feet, shower schedules and so much more. We really enjoyed this episode, because it is just another shining example of how two close friends can be completely different human beings.

Yup, we talked about browsers tonight... something along the lines of browser wars version 3.0. Apparently firefox is coming out with a new version that blocks all tracking out of the box... then we find out that a browser called Brave also already does this out of the box! Kevin talked about a chrome plugin that lets you pick which scripts to block and Bob worried about what all this new browser stuff will do to his robust event tracking in google analytics. We also talked a bit about the social media hearings on the Hill today and what this all means for the future of truth in our worlds... tune in and let us know what you think!

So, we try a cold open for the first time and would love to know what you think of it. In the actual episode, Bob & Kevin have an interesting conversation about how much learning is required to be a developer today and where code camps fit into the equation. Kevin found some pretty expensive camps with some pretty big promises. We cover some interesting aspects of development and the various levels of knowledge that it might take to get specific tasks down. Well rounded or specialized... we discuss it all!

This was by far our most controversial episode! Bob & Kevin discussed propaganda, brainwashing, cults and more as it relates to when something should be banned from various social outlets and the slippery slope that comes with deciding when someone no longer has the right to spread their message. We also talk about the blurred lines between entertainment and reality and if anyone is really EVER telling the full truth and sharing all the facts. Where the heck are we supposed to get our news these days? Heck is this chart even legit? https://www.facebook.com/vanessa.otero.9619/posts/10155006385626062 - who the hell knows!

We are just cranking out the content as fast as tech is spitting out the headlines! In this episode, we discuss the recent demo of Google Duplex and just how creepy robot calling could get. Then we try to identify any of the tech giants that we are okay with... it was hard to find any, but the banter is hilarious. We even talked some flying cars, the Turing Test and a bunch more.
