Play episode

In this episode, Tom shows off AI generated images of a “Lonely and Sad Security Awareness Manager in a Dog Pound” and the humorous outcomes. The conversation shifts to Apple’s upcoming support for Rich Communication Services (RCS) and the potential security implications. Lastly, Tom and Kevin reflect on reports of AI-powered voice cloning scams targeting elderly Americans, and argue that the true issue lies with social engineering rather than the involvement of AI.
