Topic 1: Apple Healthcare. Are you onboard?

Apple is considering direct health care. So, they're testing out a service with their own employees. Of course it all started with data. Now they're connecting devices and data to actual hands-on clinical care.

Are you comfortable with this care from an IT company? If so, is Apple the company?


Topic 2: Do we need a Federal Agency for Data Privacy?

Proposed legislation would create a data privacy agency for the United States. Good? Bad? Or just ugly? We discuss.

Once again, we note that legislation and compliance are the wave of the future.


Topic 3: Can AI Measure Joy?

Talkwalker is a company that uses AI to help find information across the Internet using artificial intelligence. Now they've applied their technology to evaluate how much users love specific brands. We list the big results, but also focus on a fun result: Choosing a much-loved brewery.

Quote: “The brewery scored more than 15 points in the category defined by artificial intelligence-identified expressions of joy. Average Joy Score for the top 50 most loved brands was 4.”
