  5. Episode Eighteen: 695BGK (4.3.2015) | Criminal

    The unarmed African-American man who was shot by a police officer—and lived to tell the story.

    Police officer John Edwards was patrolling a quiet neighborhood in Bellaire, Texas when he saw an SUV driven by two young African-American men. It was just before 2am on December 31, 2008. Edwards followed the SUV and ran the license plate number. His computer indicated that the SUV was stolen, and Edwards drew his gun and told the two men to get down on the ground. It wasn’t until later that he realized he’d typed the wrong license plate number into his computer. He was off by one digit. By the time he realized his mistake, one of the men had already been shot in the chest at close range.

  7. Episode 014: The Rise of the Algorithm | Exponent

    Interesting podcast as always guys!

    I somewhat agree with Ben about the Horse analogy being a flawed argument., but for a slightly different reason – Horses didn’t invent the technology that affect them, humans did. We invited the technology that was, is and will be affecting us. As a group, we have a say in how we use the technology. Horses do not.

    That said, depending on how you model how society is organised, one can say that people stuck in jobs that are at risk due to automation are becoming society’s horses as they have very little say (politically, economically etc) in how technology is being developed and where technology is applied to lower costs.

    I think the solution to jobs being removed due to automation is probably mostly political and will require fairly deep understanding of technology, which doesn’t sound very easy

    I personally don’t mind paying more taxes to support people trying to pivot their skill set, but I am sure many people will not want to do this. I also think that many people don’t want to learn new skills, and I am not even sure whether the pool of required labour will be enough for everyone, especially if we don’t move everyone towards a part-time high-pay structure.

    I hope that one day we as a global society can be organised in a way that everyone works less and spends more time doing what they like (ideally something with an educational element to help advance civilisation as a whole); much like the world proposed by Bertrand Russell’s “In praise of idleness”. I just hope that we get there with out a lot of economic and societal misery in between…
