    Future Commerce Episode 65 - Retail Renaissance: A Review of Shoptalk 2018

    "Hopefully GDPR is the medicine we need to start putting our customers at the center of the story, and not our conversion rates". We review Shoptalk 2018 in the wake of Cambridge Analytica with a discussion about the content, the vendors, the experience, and how merchants can take the knowledge gained at a show like Shoptalk and turn it into actionable results.

    Future Commerce Episode 63 - "Deep Fakes" - Weaponizing Artificial Intelligence

    What happens when you no longer control your own likeness? Is there an ethical line to be crossed with posthumous product spokesmanship? We skirt the line in this episode and get topical - talking about the subject of ethics and artificial intelligence and how online communities have banned "Deep Fakes" - pornographic simulations produced by artificial intelligence.

    Also - this week we have the return of Future Policy with Danny Sepulveda - this week we have an update about Net Neutrality and how it will affect global commerce and infrastructure.
