Topic 1: Military practices controlling hundreds of robots and drones at once – with AI

Like it or not, AI is coming to military operations. It might be cheaper, but is it safer? But is the reliance on AI a problem?

Topic 2: What can we learn from the Colonial Pipeline hack?

How should companies respond? And are there real consequences for companies that get hacked?

We discuss.

Topic 3: Proposed law says discriminatory behavior should not be subject to non-disclosure agreements.

Is the NDA … too much?

Ifeoma Ozoma is a technology policy expert with experience leading global public policy efforts at Pinterest, Facebook and Google. When she left Pinterest, she couldn’t tell anyone that she left over complaints she had filed about wage discrimination and retaliation. She could not speak out because the company non-disclosure agreement forbid it.

Now she is pushing legislation to make it illegal to include this kind of behavior in NDAs. After all, NDAs are intended to protect intellectual property, not potentially illegal behavior.
