Brace for impact! From surviving a plane crash to starting-up in Colombia: Brains Byte Back podcast


“Brace for impact” takes on a double-meaning in our chat with serial entrepreneur Michael Puscar — it was the phrase he heard just before surviving a plane crash, and it also accurately describes his AI visions for the future.

If you listened to last week’s podcast, then you already know that AI can tell a lot about you just from your voice. In this episode, we speak with experienced entrepreneur Michael Puscar to discuss his new startup Ziotag, technology which can identify and catalog online video content using just audio.

Listen to this podcast below and on SpotifyAnchorApple PodcastsBreakerGoogle PodcastsOvercast, and Radio Public.

In addition to Ziotag, you will also learn why Medellin, Colombia is the place to be right now, what we can expect from AI in the future, and how Michael survived a terrifying plane crash in Rome.

Puscar also shares his thoughts on our Weird Wide Web story from MIT’s Technology Review on news that Microsoft has created a tool to find pedophiles in online chats.
