The latest episode of the Transatlantic Cable kicks off once again with a discussion around AI. This time, we’re looking at how musicians could soon use it to help create music, but concerns grow that it could one day be used to fully create music (much like it’s now used to create art). From there, the team discuss how a pair of developers have created an AI that generates lifelike police portraits sketches, and it’s got privacy and civil liberty experts worried.
Moving away from AI to something more concrete, the team talk about the recent proposal from the U.K. government to ban the use and sale of encrypted phones – often used by criminals to circumnavigate prying eyes.
