Technology That Scares Us

Amazon Echo goes psycho, Lyrebird mimics your voice, and uploading your mind to the cloud

The Amazon Echo cackling maniacally in the corner of your kitchen isn’t the only technology that scares the geeks on this episode. Alan introduces Michael to a site that can mimic your voice with just a minute’s worth of your actual dulcet tones. Altered Carbon may be hundreds of years away, but one company now wants to upload your mind to the cloud, only there’s a catch. Plus, something you probably didn’t know about Stephen Hawking’s voice.
