    Ep5: Artificial Intelligence + Trust

    Ep5: Artificial Intelligence + Trust

    Are we trusting artificial intelligence before its ready? Welcome to Law Zero: a podcast about the implications (intended or otherwise) of emerging technology.

    Our season 1 finale is tackling the topic that made us want to start this podcast in the first place: Artificial Intelligence + Trust. This show will cover everything from introducing Mark Sagar’s computer baby that inspired/scared us, how your spam filter is actually a type of A.I., why we think of A.I. as an impressionable toddler (who should NOT be given the keys to a Ferrari), and just casually screaming into the void.

    Ep4: VR + Empathy

    Ep4: VR + Empathy

    Where does empathy end and encouraging action begin? Welcome to Law Zero: a podcast about the implications (intended or otherwise) of emerging technology.

    This week we’re tackling one of the topics we’ve been most interested in since this podcast’s inception: VR and empathy. This show will cover everything from the creative power that you feel in VR, a few Hitchhiker's Guide references, getting lost in Minecraft VR, the difference between “true” VR and 360 video, and how real the grad school struggle is.

    Ep3: Social VR + Dating

    Ep3: Social VR + Dating

    Finding a suitable match online is already hard, but will VR save the day or make things even more complex? Welcome to Law Zero: a podcast about the implications (intended or otherwise) of emerging technology.

    After eight revisions, three different editing programs, and more technical difficulties than you could shake a stick at, we’ve finally made it to this week’s episode. We’re focusing on the more flirty, social side of VR: dating. The very stylish headset is irresistable, we know. This episode will cover the more PG aspects of going steady. We talk about everything from VR moving from silo to social, how more dragons could really break you out of that basic dinner/movie date combo, a #throwback to some UX not seen since MP3 players, several business ideas (like VR speed dating), and Carole generally roasting herself.

    Ep2: Voice Interfaces + Sexism

    Ep2: Voice Interfaces + Sexism

    Do voice interfaces encourage sexism? Welcome to Law Zero: a podcast about the implications (intended or otherwise) of emerging technology.

    In honor of International Women’s Day, this week’s episode is about some of the women we have the most frequent contact with: our voice assistants. This show will cover everything from the difference between #AI and voice interfaces, spoilers of all kinds (sub-spoilers, non-spoilers, non-fiction spoilers) as well as our favorite design suggestion to date: the NOPE legs.
