Legal Current
Legal Current is a podcast from Thomson Reuters, Legal, that features information and commentary on the business and practice of law.

 

In the third installment of Wait, What? the guys jump right into the topic of technology's impact on sports and athletes. The conversation starts out with quantifying professional and amateur athletes and quickly transitions into "heart" versus analytics. The discussion moves into the topic of the stadium experience associated with professional sports teams and how the events compete with television, video game consoles, and mobile technology. 

 

Tune into the next show (March 13) when we cover how movies, books, and other works of fiction drive the creation of innovative technology in the real world. More than likely, Matt will talk about the absurdity of placing a shield generator for a space station on a planet with a hostile indigenous population. In other words, the Empire is dumb.

In the first part of the show, the guys mull over the different uses of drones, briefly discussing the commercial uses of drone technology and what the benefits and drawbacks are of this technology. The discussion also touches on the privacy implications of drone deliveries and drone use overall. The second part of the show delves into Artificial Intelligence and the fears around the potential implications associated with the emergence of progressively "smarter" computers.
