Best Tech Podcasts This Week – 08/22/22

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):

“Criminals, particularly cyber criminals, aren’t “good” people; in most cases, they do have their own personal boundaries. Every once in a while, you encounter a criminal who’s different. Someone who seems not to have limits at all. A ruthless person, for whom the goal truly justifies the means. Leo Kuvayev is that kind of a person – and that made him so successful as a cyber-criminal. But even a genius criminal can go just one step too far.”

“The popular video meeting app makes it easy to keep the software up to date—but it also introduced vulnerabilities.”

“Most companies experience the same pain point when working with data: it takes too long to get the right data to the right people. This creates a huge opportunity for data scientists to find innovative solutions to accelerate that process.

One very effective method is to implement real-time data solutions that can increase business revenue and make it easier for anyone relying on the data to access the data they need, understand it, and make accurate decisions with it.

George Trujillo joins the show to share how he believes real-time data has the potential to completely transform the way companies work with data. George is the Principal Data Strategist at DataStax, a tech company that helps businesses scale by mobilizing real-time data on a single, unified stack. With a career spanning 30 years and companies like Charles Schwab, Fidelity Investments, and Overstock.com, George is an expert in data-driven executive decision-making and tying data initiatives to tangible business value outcomes.

In this episode, we talk about the real-world use cases of real-time analytics, why reducing data complexity is key to improving the customer experience, the common problems that slow data-driven decision-making, and how data practitioners can start implementing real-time data through small high-value analytical assets.”

“Why Amazon’s move into healthcare is potentially both necessary and logical, for both the company… and America. Plus: Zuck gets roasted, the crypto companies drop the TV ads, and more.”

“Sometimes, innovative ideas can be hard to visualize when you don’t have an image in front of you. Now, there’s a machine-learning program to help. Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams explores the artificial intelligence model DALL-E 2 and the images it renders using text prompts.”

“This week our host Steve McGarry is joined by Hazel Savage, the VP of Music Intelligence at Soundcloud. To start the show the two dive into Hazel’s background into music technology, and how music has had such a meaningful impact on her life and passion. They talk about the music tech company she originally started called Musiio, and how A.I. is a huge part of their technology. Steve has Hazel dive into the preparation that happened before the Soundcloud deal, and what her role has been since.

Hazel is a music-tech lifer, guitarist and CEO/Co-Founder at Musiio. She started her music-tech journey as an early employee at Shazam and spent time understanding the pain points of the industry at Pandora, Universal and HMV before launching Musiio in 2018.”

“The crypto platform Ethereum is preparing for a major system overhaul aimed at reducing the amount of electricity the network uses. But the update could lead to other changes to how Ethereum works. WSJ cryptocurrency reporter Paul Vigna joins host Zoe Thomas to discuss why the change is being implemented and what it could mean for the network.”

“Feedback loops shape everything around us. We make a change or adjustment, watch for what happens, and repeat. This happens with people in the most unexpected ways. Tuning in to this adjustment loop can help us use it as a tool, rather than reacting to it.”
