The Modern Turing Test: A Brief History in ML and Some Cyber Anecdotes – CF046

This Week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim jump back into the world of machine learning and AI — a comprehensive conversation started on show 045 for those who missed it. We jump back in time to 1950 with the introduction of the Turing Test and walk us through its evolutions into modern AI and machine learning. We also discuss some of the recent cyber buzz with Gmail privacy concerns and new security features coming to iOS 12. Oh, and, fortnite players get excited about llamas too.

Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future!   Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
