Geekdays #831: Week Starting February 25th

It seems every episode begins with an excuse for why we're late, so here goes... Sorry about this; I really thought we'd be on time this time around! We had our lineup of stories ready on Saturday, Breki had done his initial read-through on Sunday and was happy with how everything looked, but - come Monday - he started getting a nasty cold and couldn't do his read... So, until we've perfected the artificial intelligences that will replace him, that kind of a thing is pretty much a showstopper. Anyway, we're back on track and here's the episode for this past week! Show notes and links: An AI that writes convincing prose risks mass-producing fake news (technologyreview.com) This Website Uses AI to Generate the Faces of People Who Don't Exist (vice.com) This Person Does Not Exist (thispersondoesnotexist.com) Behold, the Facebook phishing scam that could dupe even vigilant users (arstechnica.com) With the best air pressure sensor ever on Mars, scientists find a mystery (arstechnica.com) Samsung’s foldable phone is the $1,980 Galaxy Fold (theverge.com)
