    Big Tech AI Teams Up w/ Rupert Murdoch to Fight 'Disinfo'

    Robbie Martin goes solo in a roundup episode for May, but (of course) ends up going off on multiple tangents. First OpenAI's recent warning about AI aiding 'foreign election meddling' is examined, next AI corporations pushing 'ethics' and trying to curb 'disinfo' is scrunitized, the podcast then concludes with speculations about the desired outcomes of Trump's recent felony conviction.

    Check out the new release under Robbie's musical moniker: Fluorescent Grey, Smelted released on Katabatik Music :
