Jun 21, 2017

President Trump has called for a "sweeping transformation of the federal government's technology," but is that achievable? Matt Cutts of the U.S. Digital Service — which works on modernizing tech, one crisis at a time — joined us to talk about what his team does and whether progress is possible. Afterwards, we'll look at Amazon's latest attempt at world domination: the launch of a clothes shopping service that will let you order clothes and return them for free if you don't like them. And finally, we'll chat with Louis Rosenberg, CEO of Unanimous AI, about "swarm intelligence," which groups people together so that they can come up with the best solutions possible.
