Microsoft unveils four Surface computers and a new folding phone
"Big surface event panos pumped mega pumped screens folding cameras. Improved walk straight yet. So there was eight devices into an update to the so basically the context of this is mike. Smith has a bunch of new surface devices for windows eleven so they will drop in on october fifth and they also have an android successor for the surfaced u as a substitute so got surfaced. Pyrite which. I think. I wrote before they still announced but this is the kind of one. We've been waiting for years. Kind of minas ov- redesign but some Screen changes and internal changes. Fundable this stuff. So that was kind of expected and then really minor change. The surface pro acts as a wifi modal. That was kind of like okay. Cool that's happening. Then the surface go free again. Might changes Prices up upgrades this stuff. So yeah k- cool. We kind of expected that. As well. And i guess the surprise Surprise we were expecting a new surface book. But it's the surface laptop studio so replace but team that sort of name and like the way they did it but basically it's a complete redesign at the surface book. So gone is the detachable display. Which i guess i didn't like pessina and a faint everyone Questioned is it full. I don't think the surfaced laptops g necessarily has a good answer to who is it for either but the the actual design is essentially if you remember the odor acer laptops with the the screen folds for almost pulls food or hatred. Folio they post on. It is kind of that design. So it's not really like the unique design that you would expect from the surface of us. That's kind of like myself really focused. Previous who has been very unique hinges and stuff is like a kind of unique hinge in that sense for the overall designers. Yeah it's like one of those crazy eight laptops that we saw many years ago just looks a lot better and more refined

The james webb space telescope. This is a behemoth that is sometimes called the successor of hubble and it will be the biggest most powerful telescope ever put into space. And i here. We finally have launched aid. It's been a long time coming. Indeed indeed it has and now it's supposed to launch on december eighteenth. Hasn't this telescope being in the works for over twenty years. Yeah yeah i i reported on it for. Npr back in two thousand and seven. That's when they built this giant life sized model of the thing and we're bringing around the country. I went to see it when it was set up here in dc down by the white house and all the monuments and to me it looked like this big ray gun that was about to zap the dome off the capitol building description.

Perry points out. That epic committed an intentional breach of contract and breach of trust like concealing code from apple and making related misrepresentations and omissions. He's referring to epic secretly adding a direct payment system for in that purchases deport night. Which at new was against apple's rules. This caused apple to kick the developer out of the app store. In twenty twenty calling such actions duplicitous peres response to epoch said apple has exercised its discretion not to reinstate epochs developer program account at this time. Furthermore apple will not consider any further request for reinstatement until the district. Court's judgement becomes final and non-appealable
How to Avoid Sacrificing Quality Work for Speed and Deadlines
"This week. We're going to talk about whether or not we sacrifice. Quality in the name of speed or deadlines or something to that effect. This was a topic recently in conversations in in thoughts that i've been having if you've been on a team that has a very very tight deadline whether or not you've decided to trade off scope or certain milestones or even potentially changing some of the standards with which you develop software there. There's some things that we can control so while while quality can be subjective. Certainly there are. There are items with which we can agree on. Yeah that's a good question. I mean i think. I think i think that you can i. I think that you can have a team agreed. Standard or especially a majority agreed standard. I think that you can definitely have a team standard. But it's very very very unlikely that it will be your personal standard so with that in and we started talking a little bit behind the scene just to get a feel for what types of things we wanted to discuss include brought up your standards versus their standards versus team standards. Even i i would when i joined a team or when i'm new to a team when the team changes significantly whether that's new team members added or team members leave or for various other reasons. It's worthwhile often. I find to have that kind of team norms discussion. So that you can set the expectation so that you can discuss what what you expect from from each other what you expect from one another the types of things that we determine what quality is in how we define that. Maybe i think those things can certainly be valuable I it's good to have a discussion It depends on how the discussion is held though. Like if you were to stop air if you were to say some time in the in the in the team like oh well. I think that we should all be doing unit tests and the rest team kind of sit there for a second and looks at you and they're like oh okay i mean we can. I guess we can. We can do. We can try unitas than they're probably not going to do. Unit
Should You Wear Headphones or Not?
"One of my clients reached out to me and they said, is it absolutely necessary, she said, for me to wear my headphones? Why do I need to wear my headphones? I don't want to wear headphones. They don't look very good. They look clunky and there is two main reasons why it's a non negotiable that you wear headphones or earbuds at a minimum earbuds or air buds or whatever. And there's two reasons in the first main reason is that your guests sound quality or your co hosts sound or even your computers sound. Like if your computer makes a sound and it comes out of your speakers, whether it's your guest, your co host or just a notification. That sound can actually go into the microphone, which will result in poor audio quality. A bad recording. You'll get feedback, you'll get loops. You'll get echoing. And you'll just get unwanted sounds. That's the first main reason, especially if you have a co host or if you're having guests on your show. Yes, you have to wear headphones. You've got to get the sound directly to your ears so that their sound doesn't come out of your speakers and back into your microphone echoing back to them. The second reason why it's important to have headphones or earbuds is that you're not going to be able to hear what you sound like on the

Insider was fascinated by opportunity to look into your think to on hand Why not took. Yeah that that's that's how it happened. Well the is really perfect. Because we're going to talk about a few things today. Obviously d. Pavlov is a project i've been interested in for at least a year. I don't remember when i first came across it but it might have been might have been. You introduced it to me. Or maybe shortly before that i found out about it but definitely answered that project and then obviously you've been involved recently with the elec surprise social competition. We've had another conversation about that about this. What a perfect time to go a little deeper on that because it is a different way to build bots and so really looking forward to this conversation today. But i'll let you get started. So why don't you tee it up for the The audience right now first and let them know what d- pavlov is before we get deep sure depot is like lab at moscow's physics and technology. That is focused on conversational And neural efforts Officially cool to neural networks in Terrain but Wednesday were standard like full.

But that's was formed as the name.
Google Develop AI for Detecting Abnormal Chest X-Rays Using Deep Learning
"On friday we talked about a nature publication by google. Ai scientists that showed how a deep learning system could detect abnormal chest xrays rays with an accuracy. Rivaling that of professional radiologists. The system only detects whether a chess scan is normal or not and is not trained to detect specific conditions. The goal here is to increase productivity and efficiency of radiologists clinical process. Let's examine some a i x ray. Science first of all how to rays work xrays are a type of radiation energy. Wave that can go through. Relatively thick objects without being absorbed or scattered very much. X rays have shorter wavelengths than visible light which makes them invisible to the human eye for medical applications of vacuum x. Ray tube accelerates electrons to collide with a metal and owed and creates rays these rays are then directed towards the intended target like a broken arm for example and then picked up by digital detectors called image plates on the other side differ body tissues absorb x rays differently so the high amount of calcium in bones for example makes them especially efficient at x ray. Absorption and this highly visible on the image detector soft tissues like lungs are slightly lighter but also visible making x ray and efficient method to diagnose pneumonia or pleural a fusion Which is fluid in the lungs. For example according to this latest nature publication approximately eight hundred and thirty seven million chest. Xrays are obtained yearly worldwide. That is a lot of pictures for radiologists to look at and can lead to longer wait times and diagnosis delays. And of course. This is why there's interest in developing ai. Tools to streamline the process many algorithms have already been developed but are rather aimed at detecting specific problems on an x ray. The google ai. Scientists however developed a deep learning system capable of sorting chest xrays into either normal or abnormal data intending. To lighten the case load on radiologists

I graduated from college without a plan. Then i came home but things had changed. Megan stories were honest and intimate listeners. Loved millennial did podcast reviewers. The show took off. I made my first crucial decision as a postgraduate millennial and decided to move on with my boyfriend eventually though millennial wore her down since millennial was about megan the mike she picked up was always pointed at her. Everything in her life was fodder for the program. Her relationship with her parents. Her boyfriend work friends taxes. She felt like she couldn't put the mic down until she did. Megan closed up shop about two and a half years and forty seven episodes later. She had to. She couldn't take it any longer. I interviewed megan about that decision in two thousand eighteen.

Fire TV 4-Series Announced
"And today I want to tell you about another new product in the new line of TVs that Amazon has put out. If you listened yesterday to the flash briefing, you know that I talked about the fire TV Omni series, which has hands free voice control. Meaning you actually don't even need a remote. You just talk to the TV. The difference is, of course, with those TVs that require remote. And that is where the Amazon fire TV four series comes in. So what is this? It is a four K ultra high def resolution TV. It's got support for HDR ten and HLG. So that's got great picture quality. And it includes a 43 inch, a 50 inch and a 55 inch model size in that lineup. Of course, it's got a lot of the same Lexi features that you have come to expect. But the difference between the fire TV four series and the fire TV Omni series, again, is that the fire TV four requires the remote, which you can speak to and control XE. And of course, it comes with that. Whereas the Omni one does not even require the remote. You just simply speak to the TV. Now, again, as I mentioned, I am an affiliate for Amazon, and if you choose to use my link then, thank you so much. If you want to check out these TVs, the fire TV four series, you just go to voice in Canada dot CA slash fire TV four. The number four, fire TV four. If you want to check out the Omni series, you go to voice in Canada, dot CA slash fire TV Omni. And that will take you to those TVs. Now, the other thing I just want to mention briefly is the pricing of these. Yesterday I talked about the Omni pricing. But the fire TV four series pricing, the 43 inch is $470. The 50 inch is normally 600, but there is an introductory price right now, which is reflected if you're checking out, which is 460 or 23% off. And then the 55 inch TV is 660. The other thing I forgot to mention is with regards to the fire TV Omni series, the 50 inch also has an introductory sale price. And so normally that one is 650, but the introductory price is 510 or 23% off again reflected at

Thanks for having me so christopher you coined the term bazo schism. What exactly does that mean so. Basis ism is the combination of sensors and software to measure. How well somebody is doing their job. And then use software which has of course logic or an algorithm in it which was defined by an engineer. Somewhere to then tell that worker okay. You're doing a good job or you're not doing a good job or you need to be doing this differently. And so bazo. Schism or management by algorithm or management by software.

Mandating Vaccines Shouldn't Be a Restaurant Worker's Job
"So a lot of places across the us have faced pushback. Just for requiring masks indoors but a full on vaccine mandate feels even more controversial. Why are these these taking the step. So city leaders and experts are hoping that requiring proof of vaccination to enter restaurants gyms an indoor places will just encourage people to get vaccinated and ultimately stopped the spread of cove in nineteen other countries that have instituted similar requirements for showing vaccination indoors have seen vaccination rates. Go up this happened. In france this happened in italy and even though there was pushed back to these policies a lot of people just found it more convenient to actually get the shot and which city was the first to make this move to impose these requirements. New york city was the first city in the us to make an announcement that they were going to do. Something like this is a miraculous place for literally full of wonders. And if you're vaccinated all that's going to open up to you you'll have the key you can open the door but if you're unvaccinated unfortunately you will not be able to participate many things. That's the point. We're trying to get across so now in new york you basically need to show you've gotten at least one shot to go to an indoor establishment so at the gym and entertainment venue. It's gonna take a while for people in the city to get used to this. So the policy went into effect on august seventeenth. But there's sort of this weird grace period so the enforcement of the policies not gonna start until the middle of september. But you know it's not just new york now. New orleans has vaccine passport program in san francisco put in place a vaccine passport system that started on august twentieth new orleans enforcement for their system actually began last week. It's also worth noting that not all of the. Us cities that are doing this have the same exact requirements. So san francisco is requiring proof of vaccination meaning that you actually have to show evidence that you got both shots. If you're getting a two dose vaccine while new orleans you just need to show that you got one dose or or negative cova test in order to actually get into one of these than us and you know. We should expect more of these requirements. Potentially pop up los angeles is considering adding a mandate as well on these could also change especially as you know kids become eligible to get vaccinated as well right now. These don't apply for people who can actually get the vaccine.
Elizabeth Holmes, From Blood Test to Facing Prison
"In twenty thirteen. Abc news correspondent. Rebecca jarvis was working on a story about high medical costs and we featured a woman who was spending a lot of money on blood tests and after that story ran. Rebecca got a pitch about a new start-up. Hey there's this blood testing company theranos and they can save your viewers a lot of money. She checked it out but couldn't get anyone to independently verify that these theranos blood tests which only used a finger prick and not a traditional vein. Stick we're actually going to be better and cheaper. It was one of those things where This just it. It doesn't fully lineup. it doesn't live up to what it would take for me to even consider covering it as a solution. So rebecca did news story but other reporters did and then shortly after that pitch elizabeth started showing up in all of these places and was very much a celebrity. Elizabeth was elizabeth homes stanford dropout their nose founder and ceo millionaire superstar and media. Darling elizabeth homes left stanford university at the age of nineteen to build a company. A healthcare pioneer is being compared to visionaries like bill gates and steve jobs this morning elizabeth homes is part of the news. Time one hundred list just out. Homes promised to revolutionize blood testing. She was young rich charismatic and seemingly everywhere whenever there's a quote unquote glass ceiling. There's an iron woman rape behind it but the theranos blood testing devices didn't work like they were supposed to.
