This week, Travis and Stewart discuss the perils of unlocking your phone with your face. Let’s just say that Stewart isn’t a fan. It’s a bit creepy. They then talk about Snapchat’s newfound usefulness, location-based marketing, and a big raise for a geographical data company.
Another topic of discussion is how certain sites are using your browser to mine for cryptocurrencies in the background. How can you tell if it’s happening to you? How can you stop it?
The duo then interview Amit Walia, chief product officer at Informatica, about AI, where it is making a real difference now, and what is going to happen next. Don’t miss one of the smartest interviews of the year!

Last week, we interviewed LAToken‘s Valentin Preobrazhenskiy, who gave us a complete rundown of how to build a blockchain business, what it takes to gain and maintain a community of 11,000 people, and why ICOs are more about marketing than finance.
