The Tech Tribune staff has compiled a list of the best new tech podcasts released in the last week (as of the time of writing):

“Today we continue our Data-Centric AI Series joined by Audrey Smith, the COO at MLtwist, and a recent participant in our panel on DCAI. In our conversation, we do a deep dive into data labeling for ML, exploring the typical journey for an organization to get started with labeling, her experience when making decisions around in-house vs outsourced labeling, and what commitments need to be made to achieve high-quality labels. We discuss how organizations that have made significant investments in labelops typically function, how someone working on an in-house labeling team approaches new projects, the ethical considerations that need to be taken for remote labeling workforces, and much more!”

“Anthony Hobday has 37 ways to spice up your designs, James Bennett has opinions on open source and PyPi security, Alicia Sykes compiled some awesome security/privacy options, ContextKeeper layouts out the real price of context switching, and Nick Nisi tells us all about jqq. Bam! Bam! Bam!”

“Our anchors start today’s show with CNBC’s Mike Santoli analyzing the state of the bear market, and GGV Capital Managing Partner Jeff Richards joins with his outlook for consolidation in the software space. Then, BMO Wealth Management Chief Investment Strategist Yung-Yu Ma joins to discuss Netflix before the streaming giant reports earnings tomorrow, and CNBC’s Phil LeBeau sits down with Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury at Britain’s Farnborough International Airshow. Later, chipmaker GlobalFoundries CEO Thomas Caulfield offers insight on what lies ahead for domestic semiconductor production, and CNBC’s Ylan Mui shares highlights from her interview with Lockheed Martin CEO Jim Taiclet on the potential for a vote on the CHIPS Act in Congress this week.”

“In 2020, OpenAI launched GPT-3, a large language AI model that is demonstrating the potential to radically change how we interact with software, and open up a completely new paradigm for cognitive software applications.

Today’s episode features Sandra Kublik and Shubham Saboo, authors of GPT-3: Building Innovative NLP Products Using Large Language Models. We discuss what makes GPT-3 unique, transformative use-cases it has ushered in, the technology powering GPT-3, its risks and limitations, whether scaling models is the path to “Artificial General Intelligence”, and more.”

“Your organization was hit by ransomware, and it is now time to reach out to the hackers and negotiate the terms of a deal that will bring back your data, and (hopefully) won’t leave the company’s coffers empty. But before you sit down in front of your computer and fire off a message to the hackers – stop. Are you sure that you know what you’re doing? Are you certain that you won’t screw up the negotiations and do more harm than good?”

“Today’s guest launched an agency, created software for the agency and grew that tool into a successful software company. way harder. Not only that, he also got to the finish line–he sold the software to Adobe and now he’s traveling all over the world. I want to find out how he did it. Alex Packham is the founder of ContentCal, a social media planning tool.”

“Researchers have found a way to use the web’s basic functions to identify who visits a site—without the user detecting the hack.”

“In this Hasty Treat, Scott and Wes try to stump each other with coding interview questions like what is a higher order component? What is functional programming? And more!”

“At some point or another, we all experience physical pain. We push through it or turn to medicine, from aspirin to opioids. New research published in the journal Science highlights a more mechanical alternative: a biodegradable implant that cools down a nerve to block pain signals. It looks like a small, clear rubber band with tiny channels snaking through it. Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams spoke with John Rogers, a biomedical engineer at Northwestern University who led the research and design of the device. He explained how the technology works and the challenges involved in managing chronic as well as acute pain.”

“Fall for a fake review and you’ll waste your money. Liars swear a product works. Then it breaks when you use it. No refunds! The FTC will make your life easier by fining businesses that trick you like this. Plus, passwords are dead in the water and a new online dating trend will save you from the terror of random nudes. You also need to know why you aren’t getting car warranty robocalls anymore.”
