The Eyeball-Scanning Plan Designed to Save Us From AI | Odd Lots

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
There are all kinds of societal concerns emerging out of the rise of artificial intelligence. Will it put us all out of work? Will fraudsters be able to use deepfakes — technology that can replicate our images and our voices — to scam us?

We're in uncharted territory and nobody knows for sure how society will negotiate these risks. While many people are familiar with ChatGPT, its founder Sam Altman also co-founded Worldcoin, which aims to mitigate these AI and privacy risks.

Enter: The Orb, an eyeball-scanning device that could provide everyone with a unique personal identifier. Think of a global social security number, except you never have to share what it is with anyone.

On this episode, we speak with Alex Blania, CEO and co-founder of Tools For Humanity, the developer behind the Orb and the Worldcoin project, on his company's vision for how this tech can be used for things like proving one's humanness or collecting a Universal Basic Income in a world where AI predominates.
