Episode09: Universal Basic Income
The future of UBI is not IF but WHEN... Its coming people!
In this Episode, we discuss the prospects of maintaining privacy in a new
normal. With recent pandemic outbreaks, contact tracing has become an
important tool in combating infectious diseases. But that same technology

better target advertisement and sales. Dating in the future could enter
virtual space and we explore the possibilities of brain computer interfaces
and the prospect of your own thoughts may no longer be private.
In this episode we speak with Dr. Erwin Loh about the Professor Erwin Loh about the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak and what future developments in science and technology may help us in our fight against future pandemics.
