SidePocket: Tech, Money, Betrayal & Bad Driving

hwms.coverartThings are never as clear as they seem.  Never as obvious.  Never as straightforward as you would like. It should be simple.  You get an idea.  You make a product.  You take it to the market.  Let your customers decide for good or for ill. But that simplicity masks the fundamental conflict.  A conflict over goals.  A conflict that is often deeply hidden in the acts and decisions of daily life. Cast members Caraid O’Brien and Josh LaForce talk about the current series of the podcast and the challenges of preparing a podcast while driving through the streets of San Jose, California.   Cast:
  • Molly of SidePocket – Caraid O’Brien
  • Carl of G&P – Josh LaForce

HWMS: Do Smart Machines Make Sense?

>hwms.coverart It’s rarely a direct replacement. Rarely do smart machines actually change the workplace as they were intended. It’s always a change to some side occupation, an occupation that you may not connect with smart technology. as Our series on smart machines and work considers the contributions of John McCarthy, one of the founders of the field of Artificial Intelligence. McCarthy had grand plans for his work. He hoped to build a machine that could do the kind of logical reasoning that Euclid did for geometry. The question is, of course, “Was McCarthy’s work a success?” but the answer is not measured by the parallel query “How many geometers did McCarthy put out of work?” Cast:
  • Vinny the CTO – Geoffrey Grier
  • Molly- Caraid O’Brien
