AI Facial Recognition and Shoplifting: Striking the Balance Between Security and Privacy

In an era of technological advancements, the question of utilising AI facial recognition to curb shoplifting raises ethical considerations. Is it a legitimate approach to catching criminals, or does it cross the line into invading privacy? Adam’s perspective as a regular user of AI provided valuable insight into this discussion and he is a big supporter of the idea. He highlighted the potential efficiency of AI facial recognition in identifying and deterring shoplifters, with the accuracy of AI facial recognition at 99.53% ultimately contributing to a safer retail environment.

Talking Politics in the Office: Should it be banned?

Talking about politics at work, a topic that has been debated for a long time, is now being talked about again. Is it okay to talk about politics at work, or should it be completely forbidden? Adam’s view aligns with the idea that while politics can spark heated discussions, completely banning it is not the correct thing to do. He stressed the need for people to think about when and where these discussions should take place.

Government Assistance with Mortgages

The issue of government intervention in assisting individuals with their mortgages has been a topic of huge interest recently. Adam’s business-oriented perspective shed light on the matter, suggesting that individuals should attempt to take a proactive role in managing their financial situation. Adam suggests treat your finances like a business because interest rates have been historically low for a while, with 5% being average in the long term. He encouraged people to explore ways to reduce costs and increase income, so they could better manage the challenges of paying for their mortgages. 

They also discussed Donald Trump, and Bears that look like humans!

Adam was invited to appear on the show as a business expert with valuable opinions on these topics. Let us know if you managed to catch him on the show!
