Right-Wing Kitten Videos in The Cloud

Right-Wing Kitten Videos in The Cloud

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam reunites newly appointed PhD holder Dr Ann Lee and BFM’s man of technology Matt Armitage to talk about data loss due to technology, right-wingers and all the cute kitten videos in relation to surveillance capitalism. As a writer and with a tendency to be careless, Kam faces the struggle of losing drafts of his work—and as we find out later, is something even time-capsules are not immune from. Dr. Ann then gives us a riddle: what do the latest news in politics and rugby have in common? That’s right, they both have a right-wing. Enfin, Matt is not normally scared of things, but a recent discovery from the MIT on passive radio waves and artificial intelligence is one of them.
