On the world’s most popular albeit controversial podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared and spoke briefly about accounts and contentious content on social media platforms.
Joe asked Zuckerberg a question regarding bot accounts and controversial content on social media platforms, to which he replied that he believes there wouldn’t be “perfect” artificial intelligence systems.
“I think it’s all trade-offs all the way down, and you could either build a system overly aggressive and capture a higher percent of the bad guys but then also by accident take out some number of good guys, or you could be a little more lenient and say okay no the cost of taking out any number of good guys is too high, so we’re going to tolerate having just a little bit more bad guys on the system,” Mark said on the podcast.
One of the world’s richest people, Mark also feels he still has lousy feelings at the start of a workday like any normal human being. “It’s almost like every day you wake up; you’re punched in the stomach. You wake up in the morning, look at my phone, get like a million messages,” he said. “It’s usually not good. People reserve the good stuff to tell me in person,” Mark told Joe Rogan during the three-hour-long interview.
Zuckerberg was also caught off guard when the host asked him if he thinks Meta’s smart glasses pose a potential privacy risk. Mark tried his best to defend the glasses on the Spotify podcast, but in the end, he admitted that it might be possible to discreetly film someone with them.
Meta produces these smart glasses in partnership with Ray-Ban. Launched back in September 2021, they come fitted with a small voice-activated camera and microphone in both corners of the glasses frame, allowing users to take photos or videos.
