I am in the process of creating a podcast which I will soon make available to others. I am working on the research and the episode topics for the show. It even has cover art and an intro.
Here is my planned episode list:
Encryption and Privacy
The Constitution on Privacy, Encrypting our phones and our hard drives, At Rest encryption. Back doors to encryption by NSA and FBI, Do we really need privacy or encryption? Does protecting the innocent also protect the criminals?
“Anonymous Browsing isn’t so Anonymous”
Methods for attempting to browse anonymously and why they don’t actually work. The Illusion of Anonymity. #PrivacyLost
Practicing Safe Browsing. The threat of malware and viruses and nefarious websites. How to try to spot the fake website? Tools and add ons to protect you while browsing the web. The death of antivirus. Two Factor authentication
“Rosie, how do I stop this crazy thing?”
Robots and Artificial Intelligence
I want a BB-8 for Christmas
The three laws of robotics,
Is it important for Robots to have Ethics or Morals?
The Turing Test
The Turing test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. Alan Turing proposed that a human evaluator would judge natural language conversations between a human and a machine that is designed to generate human-like responses. Blade Runner and Electric Sheep
The Future of the Human Race and our Robot Overlords
“All I needed to know in life I learned from ‘Call of Duty’”

“The New Age of Learning”
The popular concept that we can learn to do anything in this current age. Our Google brains say we don’t have to learn something until we need it. Can we learn anything? It has been said it takes 10,000 hours of practice to get good at something. Can we speed a week in a bootcamp environment and learn how to be programmers using the emersion method, where all we do is eat, sleep, and drink our new skill?
MOOC courses, free classes online, taking classes from different sites such as SitePoint, others to suddenly change careers to become a web or Java developer. The promises, the results, the failures, reality check.

Electronic medical records, EHR/EMR systems, Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare. Will insurance companies use my info against me? What do hackers want with my health records? Hacking Medical Devices
