Kaspersky podcast: Are social ratings ethical?

The Chinese vision of social ratings has generated a lot of hype, and people on both sides of the aisle have chimed in. However, one point often forgotten is that social ratings affect us all, whether we like it or not.

For this edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I sit down with Marco Preuss to discuss some recent research on social ratings. During our conversation, we discuss the current state of travel, potential new hurdles, the ethics of social ratings, and more.

We close the podcast on a different note, talking about the use of personal photos in the training of facial recognition technologies — and how the masks people are wearing in their social media selfies are changing that use.
