Welcome to the 43rd episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast! Hosted by Jim Ledbetter, the episode explores the fear of artificial intelligence technology, counterfeiting in the vape industry, and entrepreneurs hacking the hangover.
First, Christine Lagorio-Chafkin discusses the launch of OpenAI, a nonprofit venture by Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, and Reid Hoffman aimed at ensuring artificial intelligence doesn't overthrow humanity. Will Yakowicz talks about the problem of counterfeiting in the vaporizer business, where more than half of companies' flagship products are clones made in China. And Jon Fine looks at how entrepreneurs are trying to catch a piece of the billion-dollar hangover-cure pie with caffeinated peanut butter, on-demand IVs filled with vitamins, and cryotherapy.
