TF262 – Treat Robots As We Treat Animals

BigBrain’s CEO Nik Bonaddio joins us to chat about the app that allows you to compete against the world in live trivia contests for real-money prizes. Plus, we talk to Dr. Kate Darling, a Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab, about her new book The New Breed: What Our History with Animals Reveals about Our Future with Robots. Also, author Brad Stone reveals how money, sex, power (and more), are covered in his new book Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire. In Socially Speaking, we discuss whether Facebook’s new feature, the "read before you share warning", is a good idea and question if it will change the amount of misinformation that appears on the platform.
