Knock That Off — September 18, 2017


Silicon Valley tech companies are being asked to step up, and they need to act; understanding AI requires us to first understand humans; we might get too complacent about self-driving technology; focus not on Millennials or moms, but on Corpsumers; news of fake news puts more trust in the news (got it?); why people don't like to buy groceries online; WPP demands more of Twitter; Facebook shuts down ad capabilities on salacious content; you can see ABBA in concert; billions are going into original content on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon and Facebook; Spotify goes for text; more on the Equifax breach; the complex financing of ride-hailing companies; why we're unlikely to undertake experiences that will improve us; and more in the Knock That Off edition of The Full Monty from Brain+Trust for the week of September 18, 2017.
