We don't know what we need, until we do with facial recognition.
Ben looks at potential antitrust suits against Facebook, Dave looks at anti-hate speech laws in Germany that are serving as models for authoritarians around the world, our international LOTL asks about what the privacy of instant messaging platforms looks like in the US, and later in the show, Dave's conversation with Jennifer Strong, host of the new MIT Technology Review podcast, "In Machines We Trust."
While this show covers legal topics, and Ben is a lawyer, the views expressed do not constitute legal advice. For official legal advice on any of the topics we cover, please contact your attorney.
