Episode 284 kicks off with a story that is going to surprise no one: over 50% of smart appliances are not connected to the internet, which is a surprise to only the manufacturers – it seems people aren’t really convinced by Wi-Fi enabled refrigerators or washing machines.
Moving on from that, the team discuss news that AI audio is becoming a problem, with AI company ElevenLabs saying that they’re going to start clamping down on troublesome audio recordings – but has Pandora’s box already been opened? Staying with AI, the team also look at a story breaking from China, with Baidu set to launch its own version of ChatGPT.
To wrap up, the team discuss a rather odd story involving pet fish, Pokémon, PayPal and credit cards…. We’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.
