Would you feel safe with robot pilots?

Do you feel like robots are taking over? Consider this: A robot might be piloting your next flight home. Would you want to be on that flight?

In this Komando on Demand podcast, we talk to Jeremy Straub, Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at North Dakota University, who talks about his findings and what we should expect in the future.

Kim also talks to Stephen Lapoint, former instructor and pilot with the United States Air Force and veteran pilot of American Airlines for almost 20 years, to get his perspective on robots replacing human pilots.

Facebook's fake-news fact-check fail

What's real? What's fake? With more than 1 billion people using Facebook, the company's artificial intelligence algorithms can’t answer these questions, so it hired outside firms to moderate content. These human "content moderators" decide what’s fake, real, satire, inappropriate and illegal. No surprise: It's not working.
