This week we are debating modern AI systems, especially the commercial ones on just about everyone’s lips when talking about CVs, high school term papers, and interview answers.

Large Language Models (LLMs), of which ChatGPT and Bard are two examples, are growing in prominence, but will they disrupt the technology world, or are they nothing more than just another blockchain fizzle?

Unrelated to AI, we also talk about what happens to all the “smart” things in your house when the internet goes out? What stops working? Way more than you might think…

We also have a video channel on YouTube that airs the “with pictures” edition of the podcast. Please head to and watch, subscribe and “like” the episodes.
