Layoff, Rinse, Repeat – DTNS 4402


Recent tech layoffs have made big news in recent weeks. But what’s behind the layoff moves and what can workers expect to find as they look for new work? Plus GPU shipments fell 25.1% in Q3 compared to last year. What’s behind the drop? And Meta announced Cicero, an AI that they say can achieve human-level performance in the strategic board game Diplomacy.

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Megan Morrone, Scott Johnson, Roger Chang, Joe, Amos
