In the year since Roger McNamee spoke with Real Vision, Facebook's world has been turned upside-down amid the company's handling of users' private data. In this interview with Brian Price, McNamee discusses how he chronicled these alarming developments in his new book, "Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe." And, despite Mark Zuckerberg's recent pledge to spend billions on safety and security, McNamee believes that Facebook's key issues remain unaddressed as they lie within the overall business model. With this, Roger examines how an investor can differentiate between ethically sound tech companies and those that fail to address major flaws. The Silicon Valley legend also explores the future of tech, namely how artificial intelligence could change our lives, for better or worse. Filmed on February 6, 2019 in New York. Show More
