Is the American Innovation and Online Choice Act beneficial?
Matt Kent, Competition Policy Advocate at Public Citizen, joins Ben to break down the American Innovation and Online Choice Act and discuss possible benefits. Ben's story discusses a new algorithmic model that claims to predict crimes before they happen and if, in fact, it actually works or not. Dave's got the story of legislators in Japan looking to open up big tech companies' algorithms, including such companies as Google, Amazon and Facebook.
