This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian is joined by Jim to discuss common AI applications influencing everyday life. We take a look at the latest learning technology in discerning fake news, facial recognition at airports, and driverless cars in the Uber and Lyft fleets. We weigh in on what empirical methods are available for validating these use cases in AI, and the socioeconomic impacts that these technologies will create for the average guy in the next five to ten years.



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.
