Will Congress ban TikTok? Ravi and guest co-host Stephen Kent explore the platform’s data practices, censorship, and why its China-based parent company, ByteDance, could pose national security risks. They then examine Google AI’s “Gemini,” and how recent critiques of the tool’s biased portrayals of historical figures exemplify the challenges tech companies face in curbing AI-driven bias and misinformation. A comprehensive new report from The Economist shows American high school standards are on the decline. They discuss its effects on kids across the country and what sensible schooling solutions could look like. Finally, have blue cities backtracked? Ravi and Stephen take a look at Super Tuesday’s outcomes and why they may signal a change in political trends.
