Is technology “freaking you out?”
Smart speakers, social media platforms, and what about those apps which track your every location and move? It’s an interesting and revealing time in our daily lives. What is happening and how much of what we do daily is being tracked by third parties?
Listen to 89.5 WHRV on Thursdays at 1 p.m. starting November 7 (and concluding December 5) for a special series from NPR titled I’ll Be Seeing You.
Without our being fully aware, hacking, artificial intelligence, offensive cyber and data surveillance have crept into our lives. I'll Be Seeing You takes listeners on a narrative journey to make sense of it all. In four, one-hour specials, NPR's Dina Temple-Raston will investigate the mysterious death of one of the world's most famous hackers, explain how artificial intelligence is saving elephants, go behind-the-scenes with a secret military team hacking into ISIS, and explore how technology is changing the way the government catches spies. This series is a primer for anyone who wants to get under the hood to understand today's surveillance technologies.
While this special series will preempt “A Way With Words” on WHRV, fans of that program can still find it online at www.waywordradio.org, and it will return to 89.5 WHRV’s regular on-air lineup at 1 p.m. on December 12!
