Episode 24: Hacking Sex Toys, AI, and X-Prize

In this episode I have the pleasure of speaking with Sydney Swaine – Simon, founder of the non-profit Neurotechx, XPRIZE advisor, AI Commons partner and all around interesting human. We talk about his involvement at the Biohacking Village at DEFCON, which leads us to an interesting case study of identifying vulnerabilities in IoT sex toys – who would have thought? We discuss applications of brain computer interfaces and his interest in AI.
