China background statistic computing and nowadays we focus on forecasting ways a lot of skill of data on distributed systems. So i haven't yet had the chance to interview anyone specifically about distributed time-series. It seems like that would be some extra challenges because the data sequential what happened before relates to what happens next. How can you spread that across. Many machines disputed hampshire is is just time is that alcohol. it can't be billions of observations. Historically we build up statistical models based on assumptions the narrative and other assumptions those assumptions do not work on distributed system and the industry like apache spark actually defacto standard for data processing and the the street people star a huge amount of data on distributed systems. We how to make a model that really works on sack disputed system and we have to work on their language to make our forecast more robust bus on his outer series. Yes spark is naturally a good choice to us because it's such a good reputation and a lot of reasons to look at it for big data solutions. But it's not obvious to me that it's necessarily the right choice for time series because it's not really baked in right. They've moved more and more towards like a sequel style and data sets. Are there any technical challenges to implementing time series via spark. And if you consider all single time that's fine but if you think about what we are doing we are streaming tate.

"Apaches, head of the National Institutes for allergies and Infectious diseases at the NIH and the NIH. This especially his institute has given money to a group of US researchers who collaborated. With researchers at the Wuhan Institute. 70 things have been called in the question at this point, but I mean, the more on these things with Dr Palocci are less conspiratorial. And unless along, you know, even covert origin conversations and whether there it's at all possible that any U. S dollars would have made their way to fund what eventually was Cove in 19. I think the bigger issues for the average person simply come down to flip floppy nine. Guidance. How many times over the course of time did we hear changes and the onset you we had our top Health care officials they were seeing. What about mask? Well, you know, they really aren't that effective. You needn't worry about it. And then Oh, my gosh, If you don't have your mask, I mean, that's it right. So that type of thing I think has been most problematic that, along with what often has seemed like a degree of partisanship that enters the equation, with one doctor Fauci as well, but here to talk about The growing distrust based upon some recent Zogby pulling is Mary Holland from the president of Children help defense and marry. It's It's good to have you your thoughts about the the crisis in confidence that many Americans are feeling about the National Institutes of Health and specifically, doctor Fauci. Thank you, Brian. Yes, I think the flip flops has been very distressing over the course of what is now an endemic over a year of these various restrictions related to Cho vid. But this recent Zogby poll found that 57% of Americans agree that agency capture is a real and serious threat to our democracy. In other words, a very significant majority thinks that maybe our health agencies including and I H and the Centers for Disease control. I really serving the pharmaceutical industry and not the people and the fact that a majority of people think that really does suggest there's a big problem. Right. People have higher faith in Dr Fauci as an individual, but the institutions people are really questioning. Well, and you know, it starts with a W H o. I will never free. I honestly believe that the pandemic never happens if the World Health Organization on January 14th doesn't tweet out that The virus is not communicable amongst humans. That in the trigger the response of countries around the world and how they were going to deal with this thing, So at that point, the World Health Organization lost all credibility. I think with people that were paying attention And Mary, You know whether you had the talent use of the world that just took that at face value in incorporated that into some of the original policy and some of what was advised to the president, the United States. Or, you know Or not, You know, the bottom line is they did blow it from the beginning, didn't they? Oh, I think the World Health Organization has not accounted yet for its role. They just did a whitewash kind of investigation of the lab. And I'm very happy to see in today's newspaper that President Biden has ordered a new investigation of the origin of the covert virus within the next 90 days. So that's actually now suggesting that the US government is at least questioning the World Health Organization, which is long overdue. The World Health Organization for sure Has been a corrupted agency from the pharmaceutical industry for some time. And Mary is the president of Children. Health defense. What is your greatest concern with all of this mistrust? Well, I think we're creating a very polarized environment right around masks and around vaccines and around this kind of medical around the tests and around medical coercion, And I fear that the coercion is likely to be T grow greater. And I think you know the polarization is going to be very difficult the stores and institutions and schools Now that they're saying, this is the vaccinated section. This is the unvaccinated section. We're creating a new case system. Based on something that is irrational, right? Vaccines don't equate with health. Necessarily. They don't equate with immunity. People who have had cove it maybe have better immunity than somebody who was vaccinated. But we're creating. Ah, whole new global infrastructure. They're creating a culture of vaccination. And this is very troubling. Not everybody. You know, thinks that this is the right health choice for them, And we're particularly concerned for Children because in the school Little context around the world. It is possible today under the laws that exist to mandate vaccines and basically to make an education Unavailable to Children who don't take these compulsory vaccines. So this is a very, very existentially question. We don't have a complete picture of what these vaccines do. Many would say they're not even really vaccines there injections But we do know that over 4000 reported deaths have occurred in the U. S. Over 157,000 reported. Injuries have occurred, and we know that those air growth undercounts So these air not you know, this is not sugar water. This is not a sugar pill. These are very serious medical interventions with a new tent with new technologies that have never been used on a wide scale before. Currently there. No Vaccines that have been approved to the U. S. For those under 12. I have wondered, you hit on something that I've wondered about which is. Will schools try to go the mandated route once they're available for all ages, and that I think that we we know that historically, that's been the case, Brian, you know, there's there's no marketing costs, and there's basically no liability. So Children are always the targets. This was unusual because these these products came out through emergency use authorization. They had to wait to do the clinical trials on Children. They're currently doing clinical trials on six month old or 11 months old, but the real target of getting everybody to do this is going to be in schools where they can reasonably easily. Tell this given past president Where's the whole adult population at the lot harder? It's a good conversation and appreciate you taking the time to have it with us and more to come. Mary Holland, the president of Children, Health defense. And rest assured, that is something that we will say on top of now. My Q and a of the day is rather protracted because there's a lot that needs to be discussed here. It is about critical race theory that plays off of this critical race theory being taught as anything but a theory. Every day. I feature a listener Questions sent by one these methods.

The CDC Doesn't Know Enough About Coronavirus In Tribal Nations
"In August more than five months into the pandemic Jordan. Bennett. was about to see some data she'd waiting for for a long time. Yeah. No a truly I was really excited because there hasn't been any data on American Indians or Alaska natives since the start of the pandemic from the CDC that's right. Until last month while universities had released a good bit of data about Covid and its effect on some. Native, American and Alaskan natives. The CDC really hadn't Jordan would know she's a reporter and editor with the Public Media News organization Indian country today she's also a citizen of the Navajo nation and she's been covering the pandemic since the beginning as well as a twenty twenty census and all of Indian, country no big deal just all of Indian country Yeah. The whole. That data that she'd been waiting to? was released by the government as part of a weekly CDC report in mid August the title of the top red. COVID nineteen among American Indian and Alaska Native Persons in twenty three states and when i read it, it was Kinda already something that I knew and a lot of native public health experts already knew and what I was really looking for is you know what is new that they gave to us the report said because of existing inequities, native Americans and Alaskan natives are three point five times more likely to get the corona virus than white people but anyone who'd been looking at tribal nations as closely as Jordan had could have told you that they were. Being hit especially hard for example, at one point earlier this year, the Navajo nation, which spans parts of Arizona New Mexico and Utah The nation's now reporting nearly four thousand in nineteen cases in a population of one hundred, seventy, five thousand had an infection rate greater the New York State. Eight PM curfews on weekdays and on weekends a fifty seven hour lockdown, not even the gas stations are open. That was just one tribal nation that got a lot of attention. Many others had infection rates that were also higher than the hard hit states in the northeast like the Colorado River Indian tribes in Arizona and California the Yakima in Washington state or the White Mountain Apache tribe in Arizona. And data from the states where many of those reservations are located weren't included in the CDC report, which gets it a larger problem. If there's data had you know where the impact is, how do you know where you could send testing to where there's a lack testing? You have to have that data in order to create policies into also figured out how to distribute vaccines. This episode was the CDC does and doesn't know about Covid in native American and Alaskan. Native tribal nations and how Jordan is working to get more data to the people who need it most I mattie Safai and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. This report from the CDC which linked to in our episode notes does say two important things. The fact that native Americans and Alaskan natives are more likely to get the virus. That's one. The second thing is that compared to white people young folks in those communities people under eighteen tested positive at higher rates. When it comes to these findings, the CDC did make one thing clear. Here's one of the researchers on the study, Sarah Hatcher it really important that the. This disproportionate impact. Likely driven by versus stinks social and economic inequity not because of some biological or genetic. Persisting social and economic inequities we're talking about access to healthy food housing income levels, stuff like that. Here's Jordan again the and other just like public health infrastructure or in like the lack of investment in the public health infrastructures in native communities and you have over credit households, anders a number of inequities that this pandemic is bringing out. More on that in a bit. But first Jordan says that the CDC report is notable for what it does not include this report did leave out tons of cases right now it only looked at twenty three states and it didn't include Arizona. Is One of the hot spots in Indian country. And they account for at least a third of all the cove nineteen cases according to the report. They also left out states like Oklahoma Washington. California Colorado thousands and thousands of cases. And researchers from the CDC were up front about leaving all that data out. Here's Sara Hatcher. Again, our announcement is really not generalize beyond those twenty three state overall. And we're not really able to speculate whether we expect the overall rate to be higher or lower we. The reason some states got left out was because the they recorded about race and ethnicity including that for native, American, and Alaskan Native Cova Cases was incomplete and that was really at least surprising to me because. I like how can you not capture this data right here you have Arizona where you know again, the Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian community Healer River, ending community, White Mountain Apache their cases are thousands You had the tone, nation and Navajo Nation and the possibly Yawkey tribe. There's just thousands of cases in this one St. So many gaps like in this data as well. I think just points to how the CDC doesn't really know tribal communities and know that Indian health system and how it's built instead up. So, let's talk about that. Now. It's much more complicated than this. But basically, when tribal nation signed treaties giving up their land, the federal government promised to provide them with healthcare and set up the Indian Health Service, a government funded network of hospitals and clinics. To deliver adequate healthcare to tribal nations but that's not what's happening right now and what the pandemic is very much highlighting. For years the IHS has been way underfunded per person the federal government spends about half the amount of money on the IHS. Medicaid. And that's part of the reason a lot of tribes over time have step to establish their own privately run tribal health clinics. So throw history. They all IHS. But then tribes wanted to you know take hold and own and operate their own healthcare. So that's how these tribal health clinics came about. At this point, the large majority of healthcare facilities are operated by tribes about eighty percent in those facilities are encouraged but not required to share data that they collect on the virus but Jordan says, that's something a lot of them do not want to do not with the federal government or even with reporters like her even now as a Navajo WOM-. In as a Navajo reporter, it's also difficult for me to try to get the data. Because then I understand that like I grew up around my background is in health and so I I know you know it's because of settler colonialism but also research to a lot of times and medical research you have researchers going in parachuting in parachuting out and they don't give back that data it at least from everything that I've seen the past several months trust is like the main factor in this That's one thing trust. There's also the reality that doctors can get race or ethnicity wrong in California where it's pretty prevalent from what sources tell me some doctors will just check a box on native people because of their surname, their surnames, more likely to be coming from like a Hispanic or line next or origin like Dominguez or Garcia or you know today's assumed there Um Latin x but they're not, and if those people wind up dying that seem incorrect data can wind up on their death certificate right? You don't know what's going on or the pact of the pandemic if you don't have that data if you don't know what the person died from. How are you going to prevent it and prevent more from dying from it? These factors lack of trust underfunded public health infrastructure, racial classification all add up to a picture of the pandemic that isn't complete. For example, there's an alarming lack of covid hospitalizations data for native American or Alaskan native folks stuff like if somebody was admitted to the hospital, the ICU or even died compared to white people, CDC only has about a third of that information for Alaskan natives and native Americans and I think that's just again it just goes back to how well you know the state health department or even like the CDC or the public health experts they're not these tribal communities
Arizona governor signs proclamation recognizing Indigenous Peoples Day
"This is national native news. I'm Antonio Gonzales Arizona Governor Doug ducey announced Tuesday. He signed a proclamation to recognize October Twelfth Twenty Twenty as indigenous Peoples Day on the Federal Columbus Holiday Emma Gibson. With Arizona public media has more the proclamation came after state Senator James Sita Pash Loci, and a youth led advocacy group Indigenous Peoples Initiative called for the change. Dylan Baca the group's president who is White Mountain Apache and Navajo says indigenous. Peoples Day acknowledges accurate account of Christopher Columbus's violent legacy. This holiday is significant for me because it works to try to eliminate the stereotypes in stigmatisms associated with indigenous peoples and Tribes Paschall K. called on Governor Ducey in. June. During President Donald. Trump's visit to Phoenix to establish the state holiday using his executive powers. She now says she will introduce a bill to permanently changed the holiday in the twenty twenty one legislative session. For National Native News I'm Gibson the Navajo nation is returning to fifty seven weekend lockdowns. Stay at home orders due to a rise in positive covid nineteen cases on and near the reservation. Tuesday's announcement comes a day after top infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci praised the tribe for lowering numbers crediting the tribe strict covid nineteen measures which were enforced for. Months some of the orders including the fifty seven hour curfew were eased. But during virtual town Tuesday Navajo nation. President Jonathan Nez had a stern message for residents to stay vigilant Nez, a cluster of forty or more positive cases traced back to travel and spreading the virus during social gatherings which are restricted on Navajo land, and so we're going to have to. Slow everything down we're GONNA have to stay at home orders because we don't know how far. This has gone out in. Contact, with other people, the new cases were reported in Arizona and new. Mexico the tribes also asking residents to avoid areas in Utah, considered hot spots for the virus. NATO advocates encouraged young people to engage in the voting process on national voter registration day. Barb Hartselle works with the LAS, Vegas Indian Center on the native vote she talked about investing in native youth by using traditional teachings and connecting them with issues native youth face today, really taking like arc additional routes in how we carry ourselves in is important to us and being able to invest in our youth in meeting them where they're at and letting really understand though it seems so big and so massive or maybe. It doesn't seem important at all. It really does determine a lot of things like it really determined just how far come from grandmothers and mothers generations to wear. We'll go with their next generation. Hartselle took part in a national congress of American Indians virtual gathering, Tuesday along with tribal leaders and native women in office. The organizations nonpartisan vote campaign focuses on education registration getting out the native vote election protection and data collection according to NCAA I an estimated one point, two, million, American, Indian, and Alaskan native people are unregistered. Five Indian country bills were passed by Congress Tuesday and sent to the president to be signed into law the bill's address missing and murdered indigenous women, self-governance business, and economic development, and legislation to nullify a supplemental treaty for Tribes on the warm springs reservation. There are seven bills currently pending in the house which ranged from education to water rights and veterans. Issues. I'm Antonio
Mescalero Apache officials praise COVID-19 response, urge residents to stay vigilant
"The National Native News Antonio Gonzales officials of the Mescalero Apache tribe in new. Mexico are asking tribal citizens to remain vigilant and taking Cova nineteen precautions as more state restrictions begin to left Mescalero Apache President Gabe Aguilar in a video message to residents on the reservation says the tribe and its citizens have done well following tribal health and safety measures tribe has learned how To react when we receive a new case, you know when this first started to hear people test positive one, two or three. We kind of got a little frantic. We kinda got low excited know how are we GONNA do? How are we going that we? Really? Didn't know how to to take care of individuals that are positive. But now. Here we got one case. We just know what we gotta do. We know our job we move forward we isolate individuals. And then we we actually get them help for food water and We get them all checked in contact tracing Aguilar says, the tribe has not had many new cases in recent weeks adding it's not time to let the guard down in July the tribe close the reservation and some businesses after positive Cova nineteen cases nearly doubled a matter of days since testing began in March the lockdown lasted fourteen days and was lifted a few hours early after tribal officials deemed the response successful as a Monday officials say there are four active positive cove in nineteen cases in quarantine, and there have been a total of sixty seven positive cases on the reservation. And, indigenous lead twelve hour virtual voter registration drive was held over the weekend a coalition of Twenty six native groups organized the radicalized the vote event which included a number of speakers, dance and drum groups, individual artists, community leaders, and culture bearers from across the country elder and native advocate. Eighth Spotted Eagle talked about using voting powers to enhance tribal communities protect native ways of live spotted Eagle talked about her run for office in South Dakota which she did not win but says was still impactful with the registration of sixteen hundred native people. We actually had influence in the county vote. I could have one but winning wasn't important. We won by representation by showing up have executive agency and actually working together because on the night of the vote, the people were calling and they were saying, we have not seen at many Indian cars pulling up to the voting place that made me feel like we did win we did win after all. So we're making our story stronger. We have had so many have nots but now is the day that would this self agency where moving to get away with the colonial concept is to embrace and replace. So. If you do not show up to vote, you have been erased. And another vote is going to replace you the twelve hour lineup promoted getting out the native vote in twenty twenty and also to increase political engagement of native people for years to come. Cove nineteen has added Challenges for native communities including halting in-person outreach efforts. The radicalized the native vote online campaign includes a portal where users can their voter information and network with other indigenous people this election year.

Joseph Lubin on how JPMorgan's Quorum will fit in at ConsenSys
"Today's guest is Joe Lubin founder of consensus and Co founder of Cerium? Locum? Joe. Are you. Thanks for having me on? Consensus made a big acquisition this week and also got some investment congratulations. Tell us your big news. So. Consensus. Has Been Working with P. Morgan for quite a long time more recently. To discuss how we might work together more intimately and change the nature of the farm project of corn is. Essentially, blockchain infrastructure platform the J. P. Morgan created based on be a theory, go clients, and. the use it. For their application needs. So they build a bunch of applications blocking applications on quorum awhile ago they decided that it may be didn't make sense for them to be a blockchain protocol company consensus. has now acquired that project. We are essentially the stewards of that open source project the. Merging it in terms of technical roadmap with their own enterprise at Theorem. Which are based on Hyper Ledger Basou as so we are providing support for quorum We are building out the roadmap and and quorum now constitutes consensuses enterprise offering a whether. The client chooses hyperloop Basou as the foundational element or Gif of foundational element were excited to offer A. The first time, really a fully comprehensive enterprise blocked blockchain solution including developer tools, security audit tools. Customer, success, and support sophisticated cloud configurations which are coming and a bunch of applications that the that sit on the foreign. Platform. JP. Morgan has made a significant strategic investment and and JP Morgan. A sizable client of consensus and for listeners who aren't aware hyper leisure-based Su is an enterprise three client that consensus built. So if death is kind of like a software version for the public chain than. Hyper Electric Zoo is is. Similar but for enterprise software. Just, a little bit of detail without getting too much into the weeds so Both these enterprise theorem solutions have two layers. Layer One is hyper ledger basis, which is a Java a theorem client which connects to may not a theorem. WHAT'S A full-fledged? A client ended also has enterprise at their amalgamations and on the formerly JP Morgan side death is a slight modification of the go their client So it doesn't it's not currently able to connect to may not in that's been important to us to enable hybrid. To be, created so private permissions. Systems in with roughly the same client the also connecting into not the layer to solution for both of those platforms which are now all called warm is called Orion that sits on top of hyper hyper. Ledger. baisu provides confidentiality of transactions to a subset of actors and to Sarah The J. P. Morgan built does the exact same thing? On JP Morgan side. So the ultimate configuration of the quorum client will see to Sarah which is a Java based Apache to licensed a confidentiality solution It'll sit on top of hydroelectric, which is also Java based in Apache too. So maximum permissibility in terms of licensing. So no no real concerns. There were a small number of institutions that went that comfortable with the GPO licensing of the death gone. and. So getting into this licensing is getting a bit into the weeds, but as far as I understand patchy to enables private companies to make contributions to these open source. Along the. And keep them for themselves without having to contribute them back when she was. Sort of like being able to keep their secret sauce and as you mentioned J. P. Morgan will be a customer of consensus is going forward. So what will or what are they using quorum for? The publicly announced applications are there interbank information network which has north of four hundred financial institutions around the world and it is it's essentially messing layer similar to what swift does JP Morgan I believe has around four thousand of financial institutions in their correspondent banking network. So one could imagine that all of those organizations and perhaps more will eventually end up on I. SO consensus. Supporting. That network and consensus is also supporting. J. PM coin, which is a a stable coin solution so that that's a separate network The JP Morgan is built on one. JP Morgan. Is If you do a little research they're hiring very aggressively in blockchain of they've made it very clear very public that they're doubling down on blockchain and enterprise theorem. So It is very exciting for us to be a significant part of that and it's exciting to see JP Morgan. Build up properly a whole bunch more applications on A. And for the acquisition of Ram, are you only? The Corum Open source code base or while the Corum team from JP Morgan also be joining consensus. To, the core team is heavily engaged with us for at least a year. To facilitate. Transition and two were working together on on a shared roadmap that we've defined and will continue to the fine together I can't say much more of a detailed nature about that right now but we are working intimately with those people.
Indigenous Artist to Artist, Adapting To Pandemic & Daring to Dream
"Pam is a talented Laguna Pueblo and Apache Metal Smith who likes to push boundaries and expand the definition of what is considered native art. He came to fine art jewelry through the world of body piercing and learning to make his own jewelry there, and he now uses materials like titanium and complex. Processes to produce creative modern jewellery that reflects his cultural roots right now, he's working on these incredible titanium feather earrings that are colored brightly using some fancy submission process or something but they look like something a futuristic native warrior woman would wear and I absolutely love them. So he starts by telling us how Cova has deeply impacted the Indian art community. Everything started happening in the march timeframe right. So we had the heard show that those of us that were able to to participate in that we had that, but you could sense something was coming right I mean the attendance wasn't as high. And Man shortly after that is when the ish just hit the fan right like states are down like for for those of us here into Pablo's like the Pueblos shutdown really early I mean fast. Yeah. Just like straight up no visitors and then and then you really started hearing The reaction by organizations, riots swire. Then put out the notice that like we're going to postpone Indian market. There are number of other shows that I do outside of the native art market. Those shows are being canceled. A potentially had a museum opening like a Solo Exhibition slated for this year from the heard museum that gets postponed. So like all this obvious postponement like really happen rapidly right at the very beginning which I will say I'm very grateful that happened. Then because you can now plan right we're no longer we're not reacting to what's happening and I think that's what's really made. A transition in a sense a little more thoughtful and a little more purposeful because essentially I think all of us in the native art field we were I would argue to say we were one hundred percent or one hundred, very high percentage, right like eighty to ninety percent reliant on shows for revenue generation, and as you go into March and April and realize your entire year. Is Gone like there's zero opportunity i. think everybody really just dug deep and really started to think okay. How am I going to get through this? You know especially for those of us who are fulltime artists I, mean I've been full time for over twenty years. It's It's. So. So I think I think with any with any culture. That's. been resilient for centuries right. You're native population is really taken taking the bull by the horns in developing either innovative ways to to change their revenue dynamic oranges using what they already how which is. I think the case for most of us through social media these days right I mean being able to push out to get the word out to say, Hey, look, this is what I have available and I think more importantly there has been a lot of. Empathy in the sense that people within within the native art community and I think even a much broader sense those that collect art or are fans of makers that realize it's like if something is coming out right now the only way to acquire it as online. Right, there's no shows. So so I think you're seeing the dynamic by dynamic change a little bit more.
The Ancient Ones
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries I'm your host kit chrome. Today we're GONNA take a look at a mystery at mystery at least as deep as Amelia earhart. What happened to the honesty Indians? The honest are originally from Siberia during the Ice Age what became native Americans crossed over a land bridge it appeared because of the low sea level. The Ana Sasi tribe eventually settled in what is now era sonal well, maybe not how they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah and northern New Mexico and. From about one hundred ad whose descendants are considered to include the present day puddle people I dug a little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name Apache by their enemy if it's true that the. Came over from Siberia or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred ad as some speculate than it is doubtful that they would have called themselves the ancient ones but what's in a name and what happened to them? This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties when many of their dwellings were found on the face of Mason, they were dubbed cliff-dwellers. Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into sheer cliff faces. Some were a dozen stories high and consisted of over eight hundred rooms. There were grain rooms rooms for dining rooms for sleeping today's and estimated that the on Sasi numbered about thirty thousand, one theory dates, their disappearance between six hundred and thirteen hundred ad again, what happened to them perhaps like the Mayans they migrated were simulated the Zuni, the Hopi Indians? Oh, today believed that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elderly reportedly said, the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers from the north. The villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon, the newcomers devastate their farms and that is why they began to build their homes high up in the cliffs. Okay. That explains why they lived in cliff dwellings still what happened to them? Where did they go contemporary scientists think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones why then did they end up abandoning their magnificent agriculture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles and seemingly lose their cultural identities and Hopi Land Suny. And the Pueblos the upper real `grande, oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo people as well as scientific findings suggest that the exodus from places like Jaakko and Mesa Verde may have been. Family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over a hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation should pass. An environmental degradation may have caused on Sasi to move think for a minute of a cliff face village six, hundred feet off of valley floor with eight hundred rooms where the residents for maybe five hundred people where did the sanitation factor play out? It would have been an awful long descent to use a local capital unlike the hokum people to the south on a saas he did not build huge irradiation canals on a Sasi diversion and collection of national precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their dry land farming. On the natural blessings of rain and runoff melting snow often they helped mother nature by building check dams, terracing hillsides. So locating fields near the mouth of royals springs one of the largest of their water conservation efforts was a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books I realized that no one has come up with an answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a saucy unlike a lot of ancient civilizations left scrolls and etchings on the walls on saucy left nothing. So where did they information? We have on these cliff waller's come from to Colorado. Cowboys are said to discover the magnificent cliff towel structure at Mesa Verde. On a bitterly cold day in December eighteen, eighty eight, the male members of the ranching family soon became amateur archaeologists, digging gathering selling pottery weapons, tools, and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training, they were able to identify major distinctions in the pottery they found and conclude that different sites were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth century the melting of more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American Indian knowledge has dramatically increased. Our understanding these people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating physical evidence and police seen theories about the long gone a Sasi scientific speculation about the mysterious disappearance of the builders of the cliff dwellings continued to the current era.
Capital Allocation with Blair Silverberg and Chris Olivares
"Blair and Chris Welcome to the show. Thank, you good to be here. We're talking about capital allocation today and I'd like you to start off by describing the problems that you see with modern capital allocation for technology companies. I'm happy happy to start there. So I think it might be helpful to give. The listeners, a little bit of our backgrounds so I was a venture capitalist at draper. Fisher Jurvetson for five years I worked very closely with Steve. Jurvetson and we were financing are very MD intensive. Technology projects that became businesses things like satellite companies companies that were making chips to challenge the GP you new applications of machine learning algorithm so on and so forth and I think the most important thing to recognize is that the vast majority of technology funding does not actually go to those kinds of companies. The venture space is a two hundred fifty billion dollars per year investment space. The vast majority of the capital goes to parts of businesses that are pretty predictable like raising money in in investing that in sales, marketing and inventory or building technologies that have a fairly low technical risk profile, so the vast majority of tech companies find themselves raising money. From a industry that was designed to finance crazy high technology risk projects at a time where that industry because technology so pervasive you know really do the great work of of many entrepreneurs over the past twenty to thirty years, technology is now mainstream, but the financing structure to finance businesses not has not really changed much in that period of time. Yeah, and then I guess I'll talk a little bit. My my background is I came from consumer education sort of background, so direct to consumer, thinking about how you use tools and make tools that ingrained into the lives of teachers, parents students I was down in the junior class dojo before starting capital with Blair. We were working on the Earth thesis He. He was telling me a lot about this. The the date out. There exists to make more data driven in data rich decisions. How do we go software to make that easy to access in self service and sort of servicing the signal from the noise, and we kicked around the idea and I thought that they were just a tremendous opportunity to bring. What Silicon Valley really pioneered which is I think making software that is easy to use in agreeing to your live into kind of old industry fund raising capital Haitian. The kinds of capital allocation that exist there's. And debt, financing and different flavors of these. Of these things say more about the different classes of fundraising in how they are typically appropriated two different kinds of businesses. So. You have the main the main groups you know. Absolutely correct, so there's. Equity means you sell part of your business forever to a group of people and as Business Rosen succeeds. They'll get a share in that. Success and ultimately income forever. Debt means you temporarily borrow money from somebody you pay them money, and then at some point in time that money's paid back and you all future income for your business, so equities permanent, not permanent. If you think about how companies are finance like. Let's take the P five hundred. About thirty percents of the capital that S&P five hundred companies use to run. Businesses comes from debt. In the venture world that's remarkably just two percent. And the thing that's crazy is this is two percent with early stage seed companies, also two percent with public venture, backed companies in places like the best cloud index, which is like a one trillion dollar index of publicly traded technology companies started their life, and in with injure backing many of them SAS companies, these companies, also just two percent finance with debt, but nonetheless within these these classes, the reason it's obviously economically much better for a business and pretty much every case to finance itself with debt because it's not. Not It's not permanent, and it can be paid back. It's much much cheaper to use debt. That's why you buy a house with a mortgage show. You know you don't sell twenty percent of your future income forever to your bank help you buy a house, but the reason that people use equity comes back to the risk profile so just like. If you lose your job and you can't pay off your mortgage. The bank owns your home. Same exact thing happens with debt in so restorick Louis, if there's very low. Certainty around the outcome in typically early stage investment you're you're doing a lot of brand new are indeed you have no idea if it's GonNa work you cope. You know over time that you'll be successful, but there's really quite a bit of uncertainty equities a great tool because you're. You'RE NOT GONNA lose a business, you know everybody can basically react to a failed. Are Indeed project. Decide what to do next had saints. Equity is kind of the continent tool for high technical risk, high uncertainty investments, and then debt is basically the tool for everything else, and it can be used as most companies do for. Ninety percent of The places that businesses are investing so if you're spending money on sales and marketing, and you know what you're doing and you've been running campaigns before. That were successful, very. Little reason you should use equity for that if you're buying inventory if you are a big business that's. Reach a level of success that on. Means you have a bunch of diversified cashless. Coming in businesses might take out dead on business kind of overall, so it's less important what specifically you're using the money for, but it's important to recognize that most companies are financed roughly fifty fifty equity versus dead, just just intra back companies that. That are kind of uniquely Equity Finance. Scaling a sequel cluster has historically been a difficult task cockroach. DB Makes Scaling your relational database much easier. COCKROACH!

The capital that is being steered towards a recipient. It's often originating in a large source, a sovereign wealth fund or family office in it's being routed through something like capital allocators cater like a venture capital firm for example or a bank. How does this capital get allocated to these smaller sources? What is the supply chain of capital in the traditional sense? You know it's kind of funny to think about capital and things like the stock market in the form of a supply supply chain, but this is exactly how we think about it so at the end of the day. Capital originate. In somebody savings, basically society savings right you. You have a retirement account or your population like you know in in Singapore and Norway with a lot of capital, it sort of accumulated from. From the population and these sovereign wealth funds, or you're an endowment that's you know managing donations of accumulated over many many years, and ultimately you're trying to invest capital to earn a return and pay for something pay for your retirement pay for the university's operation so on so forth so that's Capitol starts, and it basically flows through the economy in theory. To all of the economic projects that are most profitable, inefficient for society, and so, if you step back, and you think about like how how is it that the American dream or the Chinese Miracle Happen? You know in in both of those cases different points of the last hundred years. Why is it that society basically stagnated? You know the world was a pretty scary. Scary place to live in up until about seventeen fifty, the industrial revolution started. Why is it that you know basically for all of human history? People fought each other for food and died at the age of thirty or forty, and over the last two hundred fifty years that it's totally changed. It's because we have an economic system that converts capital from its original owners. Diverts it to the most productive projects. which if they're successful, replace some old more expensive way of doing something with newer better way and so I think when when I described that like you know I, think most people can step back and say yeah, okay I. kind of see how capital flows through the system, it goes automatically to someone making an investment decision like a venture capital firm ultimately gets into the hands of the company company decides to invest in creating some great product that people love. Let's. Let's say like Amazon and then everybody switches from you know buying goods at some store that may or may not be out of you know may or may not being stock to the world's best selection of anything you'd never wanted. The most efficient price that's society gets wealthier basically through these these kind of steps in these transformations, but it's asking if you step back and think about it like nobody actually thinks it's processes as efficient as it could be like. We asked people all the time. People were interviewing journalists companies. We work with sewn. So how efficient do you think world's capital allocation is? I've never met a person that says it's pretty good. You know we're like ninety percent of the way there. In fact, most people think it's pretty inefficient. They think of companies like you know we work, and some of the more famous cases lately of of Silicon. Valley back businesses that that totally. underwhelmed disappointed. Their initial expectations and I think most people admit that the efficiency of capital allocation is either broken or nowhere close to achieving its potential, and so we basically we'll talk more about our technology and how we do we do. We basically think of this problem our problem to solve. There's an incredible amount of Apache inefficiency in how data that goes from a project or a company, ultimately funneling up to an investor flows, and so you know it's hard to place blame because there's so many people in the supply chain, but. But I think it super clear that if it's difficult to measure whether or not a project or a business is good at converting capital into value in wealth, and you know products that people want, it's nearly impossible for society to become really good and efficient at allocating its capital, so we're we're here basically to make the data gathering data transformation visualization communication of what's actually going on under the out of business as efficient as possible and you know from that, we thank some great things are going to happen to the economy. Goes a little bit deeper on the role that a bank typically plays in capital allocation. If you think about our bank works like let's take. Let's take a consumer bank that most people think about you gotTA checking account. Right, now you've got some money in that checking account. That account actually takes your money or dot and most people know this your dollars sitting in that account. You know just waiting around. You'd withdraw them. Your dollars are actually rolling up into the bank's treasury. There's somebody at the bank working with the regulators to say hey, how much of this money can we actually put into things like mortgages, commercial loans, all of the the uses of capital that society. Has In some some effort to. To, move the world forward and make the economy efficient, and so those deposits basically roll up into a big investment fund, and there's ratios that regulators set globally that say those dollars needed to be kept in reserve, versus how many are actually able to be invested, but with the portion that's able to be invested. It's there to fun. You know building a house to fund a business back -Tory to fund sales and marketing or inventory procurement for some other business, and so a bank was was basically the original investment fund, and a bank has unlike venture funds and other sources of. We typically think private capital. The bank has tricky. Problem were any moment all of the depositors holding the checking accounts could show up and say hey. I want my money back and so that's why banks have to deal with reserving capital predicting the amount of withdraw and classically everybody wants her money at once at the worst possible time, and so banks have to deal with quite a bit of volatility now if you take an investment fund on the other hand. Totally totally different structure, so your typical venture fund will have money available to it for a period of ten years from you know typically these larger pools of capital. We talked we talked about so very rarely. Individuals are investing retirement savings in venture funds, typically sovereign wealth funds down that's. Basically pools of that individuals capable. Win One of these funds makes a commitment to a venture fund. It'll say you've got the capital for ten years. You've gotta pay back. You know as investments exit, but other than that will check in ten years from now. We hope that we have more than we gave you the star with and there there's no liquidity problem because the fun has effectively carte blanche to keep the money invested until some set of businesses grow and succeed and go public and make distributions so one thing that's fascinating. The Tappan in the last twenty five years is private capital capital in the format of these kinds of funds. Have just grown tremendously and so today. There's a little over five trillion dollars. Of private capital being allocated in this way to think like buyout funds venture funds so on and so forth. Funds don't have the liquidity problems of banks. They can make much longer term for looking investments. This is created tremendous potential to make the economy more more efficient by taking out the time spectrum. You know this is why venture investors can do things like finance spacex or Tesla. Really. Build fundamental technologies in the way that a bank never could so this is an amazing thing it. However leads to a very long. You DAK cycle, so the incentive goes down when you take out the time line over which investment needs to pay back. To carefully monitor and understand what's going on in the business day today, so it's pretty interesting thing about the different pools of capital. There's not not to. Make it sound too confusing, but I think everybody will admit that the financial markets are incredibly diverse complicated we track basically about fifteen different kinds of capital, and they're sort of pros and cons with each one, but you know a bank is one. A private fund is wanted insurance companies balancing as another. You've got things like ETF and public vehicles that hold capital so there's quite a bit of complexity and the the structure of the financial markets. All right well. That's maybe the supply side of Capitol on. All kinds of middlemen and all kinds of different arrangements, but ultimately there is also the demand side of Capitol, at least from the point of view of companies getting started which is. Startups or computer in later stage with the maybe they're not exactly considered startup anymore, but they're mature. These companies have models for how they are predicting. They're going to grow, but oftentimes these companies are very. Lumpy in terms of how their their revenues come in how closely their predictions can track reality. So how do technology companies even model their finances? Is there a way to model their finances? That actually has some meaningful trajectory. Sure so first. Companies you know need need a base think of all the places that they're spending our money and. We're pretty. We Do I. Think a pretty good job of organizing this and making it simple so when we look at companies and we can, we can talk more about how the the cabinet machine operates, but when we look at companies, we basically think they're only a handful of places of money. Get spent you spend money on. Short term projects that you hope proficient things, sales and marketing. Houston money on paying for your sources of financing like paying interest on debt, making distributions to your investors, and then you spend money on everything else and everything else can be designing software building products on, and so forth, and so if you break the demand for capital down into just those three buckets. And look at them that way. Some pretty interesting things happen. The first is for the short term investments that you hope productive. You can track pretty granular nearly whether or not they are, and we'll come back to that. For paying back your investors, you sort of know exactly how much you're paying your investors so a pretty easy thing to track, and then for the operating costs you know most people will help us. Apax, that you're paying to keep the lights on things like Renton the your accountants, the CEO salaries on and so forth these are these are table stakes expenditures. You need to stay in business and so. Amongst each of those three things, there's different things that you wanna do to optimize and I'm happy to go into more detail sort of go through each one. If you think that'd be useful. Yeah Bliss a little bit more about about how these companies should be a modeling, their revenues are that is meaningful to model their revenue so that you can potentially think of them as targets for for capital allocation so. If we think about. Understanding what company might be a viable recipient of capital? How can you accurately predict the trajectory of that company, or or do they? Would they present a model? Would they develop a model good through a little more detail? How a company would serve justify? It's need for capital. So typically what what most companies do and this is not terribly useful or accurate, but I'll tell you what most people do I mean by the way like how central the entire economy predicts, predicts demand for capital works like this. Companies take. Their income statement on their. Balance Sheet historically. And they they basically have this excel file got a bunch of you know, rose and have different things like my revenue, my you revenue that sort of linked or my expenses that are linked revenue Mukasey could sold so on and so forth, and they grow each of those rose by some number that they hope to hit so if you want your revenue to double next year, you'll say my revenue one hundred dollars today I wanted to be two hundred. Hundred dollars twelve months from now I'm just GONNA draw a line between those two points and every month. There will be some number that's on that line, and that's why monthly revenue I want my expenses. You know everyone knows. Expenses are going to have to go up if my revenue goes up but I don't want them to go up as much as my revenue, so I'm going to draw a line. That's you know somewhere less than a doubling. and. You pull these lines together on one big excel file and there's your you know they're your corporate projections. In general, this is true for big companies small companies, but that's not actually how. Company revenue works because if you go back to the three categories, we talked about before, and you just focus on the one that talks about the short term investments. The. Way Company Revenue Actually Works is a company this month. Let's say they spend one hundred dollars on sales marketing. Well. They're hoping to get a return on that sales marketing, and so they're hoping that in the next you know six months. That's paid back. Twelve months that's paid back. You can actually track every time they spend money on sales and marketing. how quickly it gets paid back so it's that level of precision that can accurately predict revenue, and so what we do is we basically just get a list of every time? Money was spent on one of these short-term investments, so you sales and marketing for for an example, and then we get a list of all of the revenue that was ever earned. And we attribute between both of those lists causing effect. And we do that using a bunch of techniques that are pretty commonplace in your typical data, company or machine learning company. We use some math things like factor graphs. We use simple kind of correlations. We have You know a whole kind of financial framework to. Guess. What attribution should be because you learn a lot as you see different businesses and you see a bunch of different different patterns, which you can basically cluster on, but it is this linkage between spending on something like sales and marketing emceeing seeing revenue, go up or down, but makes or breaks a business, and you want to look at it and I is. Not a bundled. Entirety which is how financial projections are typically built? Okay, well! Let's talk a little bit more about what you actually do so if you're talking about early stage technology companies. Describe how you are modeling, those companies and how you are making decisions as to whether they should receive capital. When a company comes to capital they they come to our website. They sign up for this system that we built which which we've called the capital machine. And the first thing that they do is they connect their accounting system their payment processor typically, so think like a strike, and then sometimes they'll provide other things like a pitch deck or a data room, or whatever other information they have prepared. The system pulls down. All of the date in the accounting system and the the payment processor, and we look at other systems to these are the two key ones that all all dive into detail, and so, what ends up happening is from the accounting system. We get a list of all the times. Businesses spend money on these things like sales and marketing that we were talking about before. From the payment processor we get a list of all the revenue transactions in crucially we get it at. The level of each. Each customer payment, and so you know we scrub I all we really care about is having a customer ID, but once we have data at that level. We can start to do this linkage and say all right look. You know this business spent. A million dollars on sales and marketing and March of two thousand eighteen in April of twenty eighteen, and we saw revenue grow by twenty percent. That was a pretty substantial chain. You know what actually happened here. You can typically identify the subcategories of sales and marketing and start to do this link between these two, and this is really the you know the magic behind our our data science in our team pairing with our engineering team to figure out this problem and solve away that is, that's robust. Bud once we have these two data feeds, and the system goes through, and does all of these attribution. Populations were able to present that back to accompany a pretty clear picture of what's going on, and so we'll say things like hey. Your Business is pretty seasonal, and in the summer is when you're typically more more efficient at converting your sales and marketing dollars into growth so I, you want to finance growth in the summer. The second thing is only about eighty percent of your businesses financeable. There's twenty percent where you might not know it because you're not looking at this level of detail, you're busy building your business, which is exactly exactly what you should be doing, but Twenty percent of your businesses, not efficient. You're spending money on on your sales and marketing categories, product lines, and CETERA that just shouldn't exist and so if you get rid of those. If you double down on the part of Your Business, it is efficient. Then we predict your revenue will be act fifty percent higher, and we'll tell you exactly how much money you need to invest to raise money to to raise the revenue by fifty percent. We give you a bunch of charts that allow you to see how history and projections merged together and dig down. Inspect how we do that linkage to make sure you agree, but. This is what the capital machine does at its core. It Converts Company data into a fully audited completely transparent picture of. How business works where it sufficient where it's not efficient. And then that's where our technology stops, and where balanced she comes in, and so we then take this information, and we make balancing investments directly in companies, and so primarily at this point we lend money to technology companies that we see from their data are eligible for non dilutive funding. We make capital available to them directly. We basically allow them to access it through the capital machine. We use one system to communicate changes to the business. No keep both sides and form so on and so forth, but this is the kind of analytics layer that's essential to making these capital allocation decisions more efficient, and so I think you could imagine a day at least for us in the not too distant future when it's not just US using our balance sheet in this tool to make investments, but in fact, just like excel, every investor can benefit from a similar level of analytics and transparency, as can companies by getting more accurately priced faster access to capital less friction so on and so forth.

The inputs specifically if you think about a model for determining whether or not, a company should should be eligible to receive capital. I'd like to know how the the models are built. The the data science models that you're building are constructed from the point of view of the inputs. So how are you determining or how do you like company comes to you? How do you turn that company into some structured form of data that you could put into your models and determine whether it's worthy of capital. Yeah I mean it comes down to what what the data is your down so when we talk to a system like striper transaction records system, you know that that's the revenue of the company now where things get interesting when we connect to balance sheets in penalizing, it's of accompanying really onto understanding. Weighing. What exactly these numbers mean, and that sort of where we made our pipelines were built from the ground up to give us that granular. Of A company's cash family revolutions. Where's the money going where they allocating? And it's savable greenway or you once. What do you understand that data through that Lens? That let's build pretty sophisticated financial models Linda. And you know as soon as you have the picture of Company You can really do a lot of flexible analysis on the back leg distributed computation. Come stuff that you would never be able to excel and quite frankly a lot of these companies don't have the stacking internally or really the tools to understand for themselves, so you'd be surprised it you know when we surface this analysis back to the company by virtue of just being transparent on how we're making decision how it is perceived their business, the signals that were uncovering. These operators the CEO's the CFO's that are really focused on building company. Really surprising. They're really making these insights really transforming. How they think they should have capital. Should invest growing business. Are there any? Sources of Third Party data that you can gather to improve decision making. There are at a macro economic sense, and so it's actually quite useful to look at public company performance and say hey. SAS businesses in general. Most people notice, but facilities in general are seasonal in the fourth quarter. Budgets basically expire and people come in, and they buy a bunch of SAS. Software and so to take concepts like that basically shapes of curves, signals and apply them to private company. Financials is useful. Crucially though there is no private company. Data repository of any kind like it just doesn't exist, and you know notoriously even even with small businesses. It's actually quite quite difficult to get access to any sort of meaningful credit data, and so, what ends up happening is these aw. These businesses. Give you a picture of their business directly as an investor and you have to interpret it directly, and that's basically how this works totally unlike consumer credit, there's no credit bureau that people paying so most investors are analyzing the state and excel. Excel notoriously breaks when there's about a million cells worth of data, and so we've got this great visualization showing our data pipeline, and it's basically a bunch of boxes, and there's a little tiny. Tiny box in the bottom of corner that's excel, and there's a bunch of other boxes across the entire rest of the page that are nodes in our in our distributed computations, but accelerate very very limited, and so it makes it impossible to actually understand what's going on in business from the source data, and it's at the source that you see this variability in this linkage between profitable capital allocation decisions in unprofitable capital allocation decisions. Describing more detail, the workflow so a company comes to you and they're going to put their inputs into the. Would you call the capital machine? What does that workflow look like in a little bit more depth? Yes when they come to the website, they creighton count much like you would on. Twitter facebook account. When your details your email, you terrify your email, and then you on what's recalling like the capital portable on there? You have et CETERA. Tools to connect your sins record and these are typical offload. So you know people are very familiar with you. You know you say hey, let's connect by quickbooks you in your credentials and sort of be as secure way, and you click okay and the system checkmark by your quickbooks in the system start pulling that data out of regular cadence and. Depending on what system you're connecting you of the characteristics of that's not go systems of record, and how much data you have you know. The data's available anywhere from ten minutes to a couple of hours later and you know once we have Dr. System, we run that through our partake analysis pipeline in the users as a company. You get you get charged. In Tableau kind of call it, the insight Saban's these refused that we think would be helpful for you as an operator company understanding about Your Business in separately. We also get views of that data that are useful to our our internal investment team. Whoever is looking to capitalization systems? Are there certain business categories that are a better fit for modeling in better fit for the kind of. Predictable capital returns that you can, you can expect with the investments that you're making so like you ride sharing or Gig economy businesses or some businesses. What are the categories that are the best fit? Say Very few categories don't shit from the from the perspective of of linkages, but they're certainly models at their easier to think through and easier to understand, but our our system can underwrite today A. Lease on a commercial aircraft, a fleet of ships and Insurance Agency ask company the most important. Thing about our system is that the financial theory that underlies it is very general, just like p. e. rate is very general, and so that's kind of sounds crazy like. A lot of. A. Lot of people say what what businesses the best fit for your your system and you know it's kind of like asking what businesses the best for Warren Buffett like Warren. Buffett is a generalist. In any business, and he has a framework in his own head to figure out how to make ship comparable to American Express our assistant has a very similar framework. It just operates at the level of transactions instead of at the level of financial statements, but certainly within. That framework there's some examples that are just easier describes I think like you know thinking through the fishing of sales and marketing something. That's a lot more obvious than thinking through like the stability in refurbishment of commercial aircraft parts, which is a key question you know. Pricing pricing refurbished parts, which is a key question if your financing commercial aircraft and Our team, the ambassadors that use the capital machine internally which we primarily do internally do a little bit of partnering with without the groups to to use this as well. These people are all specialists in some particular area, but it's crucial to understand. They're looking at the exact same chance as all the other specialists and all the other areas, so it's like literally the the Fast Company and a commercial aircraft will have the same series of charts at investors. Are there two two draw their conclusion? Is the question for Chris. Can you describe the stack of technologies that you built in more detail? Yeah Yeah. Of course on the front, we are react type script, xjs, you know everything is on aws, and in the back, and we're. We're all python, and in really the reason for that is if you're doing any serious machine, learning or data science today can't really get away in python stack, so we're all python them back in. We have flasks. As a as our API late here and That's the that's a high level. And get a little bit more detail about how the data science layer works. Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course, so we put on the dea into basically a data lake the that goes down into Ardito pipeline in that's all air orchestrated on top of each called airflow, and we use a technology called desk for are distributed computation, and I think that this is a good choice. Choice for us at this moment you know I see us doing a lot of work on. You know using a spark in other distributed technologies in the future and his team and it turns out that when we pull this data down organizing the data was really important to us as we build a lot of attractions to make accessing that data, really easy for quantitative analysts. Important central to our whole technology is that we're able to do a lot of different financials experiment very quickly on top of this so the the implications of that really cascade down all the way into. You know what technologies where choosing how we structure our delayed. Even even how strokes are teams, so it really is brought up locations across all product. How is it when you're analyzing company that you have enough data that it warrants a spark cluster because I can imagine? The financial data around the company. How can there really be that much data to analyze how you do surprised in a lot of these transactions systems taking up the companies have been around a couple of years and their direct to consumer. These data sets can be can be pretty large. You know we're talking about in the millions and millions and millions of transactions that were pulling down and storing. Storing and that just on a per company basis. You know that's not even talking about if we wanted to. Benchmarks Cross companies, and also if we want to do scenario analysis, so you know one of the things we was part of a pipeline is take this data, and through like nine ninety nine hundred thousand simulations to understand the sensitivity of different variables on the performance of Your Business and If, you're starting out with starting that already large. Sort of a multiplying effect. On how much data the system is the old process? is you go through those different stages? And, can you tell me a little more detail? What would a typical spark job? Look like for a company that you're assessing. Yes, so first episode is ribbon. Our our financial didn't ingestion parts, so we download something on the order of you know forty fifty bytes of Tim's action data for for a company. We have to do all the work to interpret and understand what that means in reorganized that data in a way that are downstream analysis and primitives can. Make sense of and use for useful analysis so really the first step at this point job is is transformed the datum some it's useful, and then there's all the work on what are the clusters in order to machines and analysis in the computational. Resources needed to run simulations. You know not not just say local computer locally owned of fall over the only about thirty to sixty four gigabytes of Ram what league, so that's where workflow comes in creating easier faces into data, clusters and being. Should you know when you run a job? You know when it fails. You know it's done. You know when the team can't okay. This part of analysis done I had intermediate date asset to do more analysis on now get back to work is a lot of the time we spend developing internal tools to make. One other thing that'll mentioned that I think's important is. A lot of the underlying technology in our data pipeline it's no different than like what a tableau or you need. Traditional BI business would have access to, but what's fascinating when you have a vertically specific domain so financial data in our case you can make a lot of interpretations about the date of the let you do much more intelligent things, and so for example we. Don't have to make your own charts as a user of the capital machine. We make all the charts for you can of course. As a business we work with. Give us ideas for charts. You can mock up your own. We we basically have an interface for for business. The I team's to to write some code if they if they want to bought when you have clients who are thinking about financial risk, financial attribution across all of the companies that we see distilling that down into a series of indicators that are detailed, but generalize -able, and then publishing that back to all of the companies that use the capital machine to run their own capital, allocation, decisions and access, external fundraising and capital. Some pretty amazing things happen in so it's only with a vertical view. You actually having these we, we call our data scientists Kwan's, but but actually having these people who you know typically are graduate level economists, thinking for the first time about using transaction level data in their analysis, which is notoriously not not available to to normal economists that you get the kinds of insights and analysis the actionable for businesses, and then in terms of the data pipeline that then means we actually store a bunch of intermediate data that's opinionated in that way, and that makes it much faster to access much easier to benchmark much more useful across a network of companies, versus just that isolated excel model that. Explains only one business. One thing I'd like to ask you about. Capital intensity so there are kinds of businesses that are capital intensive for example where you have to pay upfront for a lot of ridesharing rides, and you know as Uber or lift. His has known in much detail. You allocate all this capital two things to subsidize rise because you try to win a market, there's all kinds of other capital intensive businesses. How does capital intensity change? What makes sense with regard to the equity financing the debt financing that you are shepherding for these companies? That is a great question and be because of where you focus in your audience. You totally get the most financiers don't so. The first point exactly like you said. Capital intensity means a business consumes a lot of capital. It doesn't mean a business has a physical factory or plant or railcars, so it is absolutely true exactly like you said that there are a lot of tech businesses that are incredibly capital intensive. If you are capital intensive business that means UNI especially if you're growing, you need to raise a lot of external capital, and so it is even more important that your capital or a big portion of your capital base is not dilutive. That's that's just essential. Table stakes because what you see with these businesses, the ride sharing companies are great. Example is by the time one of these things actually goes public the early owners in the business on a very very very miniscule. KEESA that business, still if you contrast that to company like Viva Systems which I think is one of the most capital capitol efficient businesses in venture history, I think that this race something like twelve or fifteen million dollars total before it went public in a at a multi billion dollar market cap. So capital intensity. Is a synonym for dilution your own way less. Than you think when you exit entities even more important that you figure out a way to raise capital non ludicrously upfront. Some broader questions zooming out in in getting your perspective. Do a thesis for what is going on in the economy right now where you look at. The fact that We have. Obvious pressures to. Reducing the size of the economy through the lack of tourism, the lack of social gatherings while the stock market climbs higher and higher, and it appears that the technology side of things is almost unaffected by Corona virus is there. Is there a thesis that you've arrived at or or their set of theses that through conversations with other people, you've found most compelling. Sure the most important thing to realize about the stock market is that it discounts all cash flows from all businesses in the stock market to infinity, and so the value, the stock market about eighty percent of the value. The stock market is. Pretty far into the future like more than three years from now, and so if you believe that the current economic crisis and this is why there's always a. At least in the Western, world, last two hundred fifty years after an economic crisis. If you believe the crisis will eventually revert, and there will be a recovery, then it only makes sense discount stock market assets by anywhere between ten and twenty five percent. If you believe businesses fundamentally going to go out of business because of this crisis, that's a different story, but that explains why something as terrible as Kobe nineteen and a pandemic. Only discount the stock market by by roughly thirty thirty five percent in a in March, but that's not what's actually going on today as you mentioned and so stock market prices now have completely recovered. That is something that we think is a little bit of out of sync with reality but I. I mention you know we're not. We don't spend too much time about the stock market beyond that we just look at you. Know Private Company fundamentals. We try to understand what's actually going on in individual businesses across all businesses that are network to see what you know what we can understand, and you know what kind of conclusions we can draw, and so if you take that Lens and you actually look at what's happening to businesses due to Cova nineteen, it's fascinating. Some businesses like think the food delivery space have gotten a lot more efficient, so those businesses lot like ridesharing businesses back twelve months ago, there was sort of a bloodbath between bunch of companies competing in local markets to acquire customers all all fighting Google and facebook console, and so forth you subsidies drivers, etc.. That's essentially stopped. These businesses incredibly profitable, the cost acquire customers has fallen by more than half a lot of cases. The channels were slot less competitive, and so if you're running one of those businesses. Now is a great time to be aggressively expanding. Weird things like commercial construction businesses. They're actually a handful businesses that we've seen do things like install windows and doors and commercial buildings whose businesses have accelerated because all of these buildings are closed down. Construction project timelines have gotten pulled up. All of these orders are coming. Do in they're you know sort of rapidly doing it solutions? There's obviously a bunch of other businesses have been that have been hurt by by the pandemic, but our general thesis are we've studied. Pretty detailed way the Spanish flu in nineteen eighteen, you know. These things eventually go away. There will be a vaccine. Economy will get back to normal, and as long as we can stay focused on working through this as as a society and of maintain our our fabric of of kind of economic progress then. DESAGUADERO values today will eventually make sense just sort of a question of of win for the stock market, and then if you're if you're actually running business in thinking about your own performance in isolation, really being clear about is now the time to invest and grow my business now the time to be very careful with my expenses interest, get through this for the next year or however long it takes for there to be a vaccine. So the way to think about your company, if I understand correctly if I was to to put in a nutshell, is that. I think of you as a data science middleman between large capital allocators, and and start ups deserving of capital, so the the sovereign wealth funds the banks the I guess. Funds of funds. These kinds of sources are essentially looking to you for guidance on where to direct the capital, and you're on the on the other side, absorbing data and creating opportunities from these startups to source the good directions of that capital. Just wrap up. Would you put any more color around that description or or refining anyway. Yeah I mean I. think that at the core of what capital is is where the. Core Technology Ambler of sort of. The private market if you think about public markets today, you've clearing-houses like the New York Stock Exchange, and you have companies that provide analysis on top of that like Bloomberg, you know we see a tremendous opportunity to shift the paradigm where you know the place where all the financial transactions happen. is also the place that collects the data improvise information for those making these decisions and yeah, so I think capitals really at the center of making a transparent technologically enabled financial marketplace. Guys. Thank you so much for coming on the show and discussing capital, and I guess one last question is. Do you have any predictions for how capital allocation for startups will look differently in five ten years? Sure so! The first prediction. And this is happening now. I mean the the infrastructure is. In place both within. And others. Most startups fairly early in their life. Think is equity only way to do this and. So. That's a cultural shift. That's that's already happened. People are starting to ask that question. The second prediction is. Seed and series a funding will be entirely unchanged. After series. There'll be a bifurcation between businesses that. Are Really. Capital intensive gigantic rnd projects think like SPACEX. The series, B. C. d. e. enough are really about building and launching a rocket. Those businesses will by and large not. Turn outside of equity to finance themselves, but there's very few of those businesses. Pretty much every other business businesses that you see raising a series B. Serie C. Will like any normal business in the entire rest of the economy raise maybe half of that capital nine allegedly either in the form of debt. Royalty financing factoring all of the other instruments that normal companies use to finance themselves in the void delusion that will happen roughly three years her. Now that'll that'll kind of we'll see obvious obvious signs of that from very early very early base, and then the final the final thing is. Steve Case talks a lot about this. With the rise of the rest, he's got this great venture fund that invests explicitly outside the coast, so kind of the rest of America and we've seen that there's there's a pretty dramatic distinction between being a coastal business non-coastal business from capital access perspective, but there's no distinction from an actual performance perspective, and so we'll start to see some of the regional. Differences in bias sees around where capital flows, go away. And so I would maybe put that on a five year timeline like raising capital is actually much more predictable, much less biased, and that's great back to the beginning of our conversation. That's great for the economy I mean every project or business that can convert capital, two products and services that people love should get finance.

Stare at. The Red Nation three sisters collective, demonstrated outside the monuments wall, calling for its permanent removal as county officials decide the statues. Fake speakers used a megaphone to talk about the monument, sitting on traditional Pueblo homelands and recounted the atrocities. The conquistador committed against Pueblo people the. Ball and everyday bubble resistance is the reason public people are still here because resistance is traditional. The group then cross gates onto the grounds. Where the statue stood as deputies watched nearby, demonstrators climbed on the Monument Mount, saying a handwriting song and Red Paint was hand printed on the plaque, own yacht as name. Jennifer Marley has long been involved with the red nation, not a protest. It's a it's A. It's a celebration and also a chance to inform people. About this history entered mind people that the struggle is not over that this is of many victories that we will continue to have and that the work continues, and we must go on. The Red Nation has advocated for the removal of names and symbols of Spanish conquistadors around new. Mexico. The group was instrumental in the University of New Mexico Seal Change, which depicted conquistador frontiers, men. They also led the way in ending pageantry, depicting the re entry of Kista door NC on affay. Monday's event drew some opposition. Shots could be heard from cars, a few voices expressing differing views from the crowd and oncein across the street read all lives matter a slogan which has been associated with criticism of the black lives matter movement, meanwhile in Albuquerque shooting occurred at a demonstration Monday night, as people called for the removal of a statue police are investigating and reported early Tuesday morning.

"The answer surprisingly is no. We're actually not surprisingly at all if you take a moment to think about it The problem is if you ask this question to me. I don't know how to turn on an Apache helicopter like I don't know of a button with a key. Fob that you keep with you like I have in my car. I assume there's some sort of pre check sequence Apache helicopters I'm betting or not. Actually that easy to turn on and or fly so if you have an Apache helicopter an infinite ammunition and infinite fuel. You still need a pilot. I'm pretty sure Apache helicopters have a two man crew on the flight so I think they have a pilot and gunner and. I'm pretty sure they have a maintenance crew. So just the helicopter by itself even though you have magical infinite ammunition in magical infant fuel. You don't have anyone to utilize it. The most important part of the Apache helicopter is probably the pilot and the crew. What would make more sense would be to repurpose the infinite ammunition and you could sell it to other people and then repurpose the fuel. Maybe even in use that fuel to create a new society and in that New Society you could become the dominant force probably economically in the world. Because you have infinite ammunition I've do is wait for technology to get to the point where you actually could use that infinite ammunition and honestly you could do it peacefully by being the person in control of the infinite amount of fuel the secondary thing. Let's say you do have the pilot so you've asked me and I just happened to be an Apache pilot and I have a twin who could also be the governor who has the exact same skill. Set His me. One Medieval army wouldn't be that hard to be so. Could you beat a medieval army with an Apache helicopter infinite AMMO and fuel? No I could not and probably neither could you unless there is significant number of Apache helicopter pilots. Who Listen to this podcast core question? How should an employer show their employees that they care and in brackets besides higher pay? So if I'm gonNA rewrite this question what's a cheaper way to retain staff the problem here is that this business in business people On the business side management side. They always WANNA make emotions part of it. Part of their business transactions but they want that to go one way. They want you to feel loyalty to the company. The actually don't want the company to feel any sort of obligation of loyalty to the employees. So they need to cut you. They should be able to cut you casino. It's just business but you as a worker there. You should care about the company. You should be loyal to company. So this is a very classic. Catch twenty two management issue because if this is just business then the only way to show that you care is more money because that's the only way you're really going to improve your employees lives. So let's say you come up with free drinks in the staffroom. It is cheaper than higher pay but that as an employee of Your Company. That doesn't actually improve my life at all. Yes might get addicted to caffeine of some sort. I might start getting diabetes later in life because I've had all these free drinks while I'm at work but that actually doesn't improve my life and it doesn't really show you cared shows that you're trying to impress upon me the idea that you care but if you really cared you would pay me more money. Give me the soda money which I could then use to improve my life now. The concern here is it goes far enough. I improve my life in some way I get more education. I learn more skills now. Maybe may become so valuable that. I'm more valuable to another company. Now you have to pay me even more money to get me to stay. The thing that employees need to remember is that companies do not actually care about you. It is just business. You should treat it the same way so I when I go to work it's not like I'm Anti Business Anti Corporations. I think they serve their purpose than I served my purpose for them. As a cog in the wheel but the day my company stops paying me is the same day I stopped showing up. I don't have any sort of loyalty to the company that goes beyond that you hear about big corporations and they have free food and they have free naps and you can come in and you can leave when you want and have all these perks but every one of those perks designed to get you to stay at the office longer. They're not gonNA pay you more. Oh we get free foods. You don't have to go out for food so you can stay in the office longer. Oh you can take a nap during the day so you can stay later at night. That's not for your benefit that is holy for the benefit of the company and like even things like free drinks that's to make you feel hopefully some sort of emotional obligation to the company. Well they've given me this free stuff so I should work harder but that is at the end of the day irrelevant. You do your job. You should be doing your job. The best you can. And that's actually where. The employees often fails employees often want to coast by doing the absolute minimum and then feel like they should get treated really really well but a lot of employees who demand raises. They really don't deserve the raises but then the company often doesn't give raises to the people who do so here. We start going in sort of a circle. How should an employer show their employees that they care you should pay them a fair wage I and if they accelerate their jobs you pay the more money because this business and at the end of the day? This is all about money. The reason you pay them is for their performance. So if you care about the performance you should pay them equitably for that effort so I got a message about double standards. I've made a couple jokes about having a son and a daughter and the double standards that I inherently immediately is the way I treat my son in the way I treat my daughter overall is quite equitable but I feel more protective my daughter when people say that's a double standard on fair. And you shouldn't do that but honestly the joke answer is that I would put my daughter in a cage and the first boy you comes around the house. I'm just going to murder him straight up and then my son can go out and do it every once and he can stay out all night and everything like that. That is a joke but the base of the joke. There is a kernel of truth. I am certainly more protective of my daughter than I am of my son. I'm thinking that's probably going to continue on into life and people would say you know treating them differently is wrong and I actually disagree and the reason I disagrees because society as a whole treats boys and girls differently and my job is apparent is to prepare and protect them from the real world. It has nothing to do with how I would like society to be. It has nothing to do with how I think people should behave what I have to do. Hope for the best and then prepare them for the worst so I think in the case of women in young girls especially society as a whole is very manipulative and my daughter needs to be prepared for that and his best I can. I need to protect her from that. Now I hope that in the future of course the world changes improves and everything gets better. Everything's wonderful and everyone's treated equally and fairly and there's no more manipulation in the world but realistically speaking that is going to happen so I need to prepare my kids so until society as a whole starts treating men and women completely equitably double standards are a necessity and they have to be in place because you need to prepare your kids differently for the different challenges. They're going to face being different people. Here's a very interesting question. I was sent to me by. Somebody listened to the PODCAST. They didn't want their name connected to this question. Which already makes you a bit suspicious. But whatever I'm quite happy to use your name or not new username or whatever needs to be done. The question is how to Vampires get erections a secondary question. How can they produce babies vampires. Let's do the first part I then. Fires have been sexualize. D- throughout all the novels and stories that I read them into vampires are sexy It has to do with the neck biting. I'm sure more than anything else. And they drink your blood. And that's very intimate. There quite often shown as being hypnotic they have sort of mental powers. They can hypnotize people. So that's sort of how you feel when you first fall in love with someone and often times when they show them sucking blood they show. It is almost being a pleasurable experience for the victim. This would that imply that there is a sexual element. There's actually a lot of sexual sexualization in the whole Vampire mythos but that would imply that the male vampire gets direction. And how does he do it? Because he's dead? Vampires are on dead There are cold and our hearts are not beating so if their hearts beating there is no blood flow if there is no blood flow than there is no erection for the male vampire which means he is de facto unable to actually have any sort of intercourse since vampires are magical beings the fact that they're moving around it all shows that there's something else going on because the fact that they're moving around without blood flow or a heartbeat means that their muscles are activated in the different way. Maybe they are consciously forcing blood into those spaces with some magical ability. They could do the same for their member by it to move the same way. They're forcing all their other muscles to move. So I'm guessing at this point. We're just talking about magic. So since magic makes their muscles move could make pretty much anything on their body move. So that's how they created the question for me then is do they actually feel sensation through their skin? do they receive sexual pleasure in the same way as humans because they seem to take a great deal of pleasure in the actual consumption of blood that seems to give them actual pleasure.

Currently researching the underground economy is, you know, threat actors they are like I said the underground economy. It's it's an organism adapts. It moves. They are in recognition at how. How well organizations do protect for example, you know, was not long ago that you could simply go to your Bank with your username and password. Right. So threat actors were regular selling a username and password and the U R L to log into and an threat actor could have had a heyday with that how ever today these organizations tend to protect with with variable systems area bowl so threat today are actually not only selling the credentials. They're also selling the variables of your environment of your machine itself. So for example, if I were to go to my finance Titian, they're going to look at perhaps my browser or an MD five hash in my browser. They're going to look at perhaps maybe cookies that I have on my system or or patching level or the resolution of my screen, and they're gonna make kind of pre decision. About me prior to ever successfully putting in my credentials that if if my environment doesn't sensually match the known variables of of these credentials. They're going to step up challenge me and threat actors have you know, they've gotten wise to this. So now in these underground economy dark markets, they're actually selling not only the credentials, but they're selling the users environments, the variables along with the cookies, the, you know, all of the settings and they package it up and just a a small web browser extension that you load therefore you can by pass the step up challenge, which to me is absolutely mind, blowing that's Christian lease from info armor.

You say that because I can't remember who coined the phrase or the the idea of like how to be successful on the internet. But the general advice is do cool things and then tell people about it. It's actually true like, and and the second part is just as important as the first, which is why you know people who are good at talking about what they do are often more successful on the internet because you have to tell people what you're doing. And yet it's for some of us. It's very difficult if feels boastful. Right? And we are just naturally not going to go out there and tell people, but if you don't do that, nobody knows and there's not success to be had. And so in certain ways, sounds like at least what you're saying they're AWS has been doing open source things, but not necessarily telling people about it. And so maybe that's why that that's stigma was attached for well, is that an instructive thing? Or is it something that just doesn't happen? Like is someone at AWS saying, hey, you know, we'll do cool stuff. It just don't tell anybody about it..

"Yeah at is true will always together so jimmy jimmy liz always trying to keep a class together and really the one of the lifeblood of the classes and one of the biggest events for an apache group is the first time you shoot in your gunnery so the very first time you get to shoot and you feel that the power of the aircraft and all that pretty cool fires we don't training there too expensive so so but the thirty millimeter is a very first thing we shot and let's for anyone that doesn't know that's a pretty big rounded it shakes aircraft you'll feel it and somehow you know we had we shot i'm not gonna say how but he procured some of the showcase seems that we shot there and at the end of flight school at the very end he got everybody their first round they fired and had an customer graves with their ip's named instructor pilots name each student's name with a call sign and a little apache on there and turn them into a second i'll get a screen shot would be really good for it for radio this is a good section for the podcasts of kitten yeah there you go cool that's awesome yeah so it's a is just a great guy really would go above and beyond for anybody and symptom just tele chill chila man just be abril annual wall make it through it'll be fine you have those kind of guys that really step up like really take them the like the occasion and really embrace it in that showcasing is a perfect example of looking at other people before yourself because in reality if you're taking brass off the range you could get in trouble for that shit when i get caught.

"Agrarianism oregano transition was who specialist acknowledges that the move on air so let's dive into let's talk about apache gimmicks net never the hit one for pecchia mixing it is it's i highly programmable portable and skiable opensource deep learning framework julianne let's let's unpacked that what does that really might yet so it's quite a mouthful to be honest and so let's let's try to be as simple and and pragmatic as possible so so first of all it's so it's an open source project that's really really super important because on appropriate theory tools you know can be useful but when it comes to when he comes to machine learning and gpus running there's a research community and the local community out there and everybody in it's a fastmoving feel everybody wants to contribute and improve so so it's opensource you can find the the sources on get up it was started in a in a couple of universities i know i think it's sir carnegie mellon melanin and i believe the university of washington the might be wrong that will end and basically what he does is that it allows you with a high level api to build in train neural networks in what i say high level a i i mean it it doesn't take a lot of code i mean i've got some examples um uh that i thought of published on on the on my blog in an hopefully ensure that legally drunk at n literally in maybe 50 lines of coat a widow i use by phone but you could use you know other languages like rrr plus plus or even matlab and few wore in let's a 59 of code you can build a train a anura let work which is a in which is crazy i mean in a when i was a younger engineer noor let works were were the stuff of science fiction to be honest and end at inuit never thought would be able to do that with that little code really so you can just grabbed those sources from guetta um a look at some of the examples uh you know forty fifty nine of code.
