Jaron Lanier on the Future of Humans and AI

"You're considered the founding father of virtual reality. Do you think we will one day. Spend most or all of our lives in virtual reality worlds. I have always found the very most valuable moment in virtual reality to be the moment. When you take off the headset and your senses are refreshed and you perceive physicality afresh. You know as if you were newborn baby. But with a little more experienced he can really notice just how incredibly strange in delicate and julia impossible. The real world is Sue the magic is and perhaps forever will be in the physical world. Well that's my take on it. That's just me. I mean. I think i don't get to tell everybody else how to think or how to experience retreat. At this point there have been multiple generations of younger people who've come along and liberated me from having to worry about these things But i should say also even in a what. I called it mixed reality back in the day in these days. It's called augmented reality But with something like a hall and even then like one of my favorite things to augment a forest. Not because i think the forest needs augmentation but when you look at the augmentation next to a real tree the real tree just pops out as being astounding you know it's it's interactive. It's changing slightly all the time if you pay attention and it's hard to pay attention to that but when you compare to reality all of a sudden you do and even in practical applications My my favorite early application of retrea audi which we prototype going back to the eighties. When i was working with dr joe rosa and at stanford med near near where we are now. We made the first surgical simulator and to go from the fake anatomy of the simulation which is incredibly valuable for many things for designing procedures for training things then to go to the real person. Boy it's really something like Surgeons really get woken up by the transition. It's very cool. So i think the transition is actually more valuable than the simulation

But i think the most common definitions run that the metaverse is like this virtual world that you know as things that are similar to a we have a real world like a functioning economy. You know places where you can have a sense of physical presence. Even if it's not like what we think of as physical early versions of this we see and things like you know big video games like fortnight. That are kind of like their own worlds or could be defined as that. But what. I think when you hear from these tech companies. They're really talking about something. That's a lot more immersive.

"What if you could walk into a room full of strangers and see names another elephant details floating above everyone's head. Augmented reality can make such world possible. The technology may soon be built into glasses. For example so does virtual content can be superimposed on our view of the real world. Engineers are close to solving many challenges involved in augmented reality at the same time however our understanding of the conditions on the which our brains can or cannot take advantage of the additional information is relatively limited in a recent study at the university of wisconsin madison and newark university. I would dhabi manipulated. The virtual content displayed. We found it under naturalistic. Viewing conditions the brain exploits. Small involuntary had movements which we call head jitter to improve visual perception for augmented reality devices to work well debt for they should record your head jitter and update the virtual content accordingly as an imported aside. We founded commonly available virtual reality headsets. Do not work well for large fraction of the population. Specifically some popular. Headsets provide a poor fit to women. As a result females tend to report a poor visual experience and greater motion sickness. I work informs the design of new virtual and augmented reality devices and may help us.

The Secret to Creating Real Freedom Through Digital Entrepreneurship

"Jason say. What's up to fire nation and share something that you believe about becoming successful that most people disagree with. Well i i thank you so much for having me on and that's a great question i for me. I guess only answer for me for me. I think it was a healthy dose of ego and delusion I think that. I think that as when you got big dreams and you got someplace like goals you want to achieve. They're gonna be a lot of people who just would prefer you stay in that kind of world of mediocrity and i think if you wanna be really successful at anything you've gotta you've gotta believe that that dream is possible that you can create manifest that and then you have to live in the beautiful delusion of that dream until you achieve. If you can do that. I think the odds of success go up the beautiful delusion fire nation. I love how other entrepreneurs talk about. How ignorance is bliss because in a way it is nice to be ignorance about the pain. The strife the struggles at a lot of entrepreneurs go through before finding success. So guess what you know sometimes. Ignorance is bliss. Delusions not the worst thing in the world in today as i mentioned in the introduction fire nation. We're talking about the secret to creating real freedom through digital entrepreneurship. So let's just dive into it. Because i want to know jason. What makes entrepreneurship more important today than it's ever been before. I have a background in finance and economics. And i think that we are part of we are at the very early stages of a a massive troll and economic shift One that is similar to what we saw during the industrial revolution. And and these way. I can explain. It is prior to the industrial revolution. Most people were entrepreneurs. They lived on farms. They they were blacksmiths or apprentices and And that was the way we lived our lives. And we've gotten away from that. But i think what's happening right now and it's the very beginning of it. We are seeing a shift into automation into artificial intelligence. Augmented reality all these really amazing things that are gonna happen for us and our culture. But it's going to cause a massive shift. In the way we work

You can't answer those. We got a problem and you could talk about focus groups and surveys Views in box pop me and whatever ethnography intercepts and all great but like a wreath understand what it is you wanna do and you've despised often. People can't tell us exactly what they really want to do. And if i can't get a clear answer with someone wants to add on the supposed to help them. So i think it starts with you know using someone who's an expert like us who can and we're not the only ones but we're the best ones out Plug in to say. And and and figuring out the right tool for the job and then you go from there right and then you you you come up with. What were the questions you want to ask. How you going to the stimuli instructions you wanna give respondents Make sure you're right. People all the blocking and tackling Things you have to do to a bit outcome and to do research properly. I think is is the answer. Yeah absolutely unsettle. Like i guess if you asked that question like what is it that you want to know. What are you trying to learn. What are you going to. What are you going to do with that information. What would it mean example of an answer to that question that would lead you to say. This is a good candidate for an augmented reality. Study so you know if someone came to us. And they said we had this new product Physical physical thing or the product concept. I mean we were doing something for a building materials company recently. Here's a good example. We news ar. But i'll give you a good example. So we did.

Tv is going to on your wall men. There was in there for me to actually take a picture on my wall. And see if the specific t i was looking at was gonna fit in my space and that i honestly didn't really think anything of it when i saw it because i'm so used to seeing stuff like that now with shopping like there's you know people are trying on shoes through augmented reality or whatever it's become it's becoming really common so for it to show start showing up in a research environment is is comfortable for respondents. I would imagine whoa comfortable for response but also comfortable for clients right so explain this to a client and they're asking what is this in the. Vr thing was example because it had promised that it was going to be something but people weren't accustomed to wearing headsets all this money behind google glass. Which was this augmented reality experienced right that you were in called it a project but obviously didn't have market except it's enough for them to continue to make a product out of it. But what's happened. Is we all carry the devices right so we all have a computer in our pockets right here and with a camera on it and the whole bit and we don't have to have specialized equipment. We can do this. Energy says it's the consumers are the respondents becoming more comfortable with it but it's also i think the clients saying only. Yeah i know what that is. I get it and that's a big deal for us because i can try to explain stuff all points but if they already have a frame of reference in they know it's much easier. It's much easier for them to get it totally. Yeah all you have to do is say now..

The augmented reality work that we do in a great way to introduce these new technologies to the community in a in a free and open way where people can can come and experience these and kind of be become more familiar with these new technologies that are becoming more a part of our daily lives.

"Snap held its annual snap partner summit yesterday and the big news was the unveiling of snaps. I a are glasses. With four built in microphones to stereo speakers and a touch pad quoting the verge on thursday snap. Ceo evan spiegel unveiled the company's first true augmented reality glasses technology that he n rivals like facebook. Think will one day be as ubiquitous as mobile phones. A demo showed virtual butterflies fluttering over colorful plants and landing in spiegel's extended hand the news articles have dual wave guide displays capable of superimposing air affects made with snapchat software tools. The frame features. Four built in microphones to stereo speakers and a built in touch pad. Front facing cameras helped the glasses detect objects and surfaces. You're looking at so that graphics more naturally interact with the world around you. These spectacles have aren't ready for the mass market. Unlike past models snap isn't selling them instead it's giving them directly to an undisclosed number of effects creators through an application program online another indication. They aren't ready for everyday use yet. The battery reportedly only lasts about thirty minutes. The idea is to encourage a small portion of the two hundred thousand people who already make a are effects in snapchat to experiment with creating experiences for the new spectacles. according to spiegel like the bright yellow vending machines snap used to sell the first versions of spectacle. Several years ago the approach could end up being a clever way to build buzz for the glasses ahead of their wide release. Spiegel has said that. Ar glasses will take roughly a decade to reach mainstream adoption and quote. And then if that wasn't enough to convince you they're serious.

Cognixion ONE Launches This Year With Brain-Controlled AR

"So start today off of the story that i just found over at the robb report written by brian hood. And it's called. You can control this new hands-free augmented reality headset with your mind. At talks about the cognitive. Let's see. Oh gee i i o n one a. are it's a hands. Free augmented reality device. That can be controlled via brain computer. Interface basically controlling this entire headset with just your thoughts. Now unlike. Many of vr. Headsets ar headsets and these other things that are made this one was actually made with assistive technology in mind many of the other ones are made for entertainment for gaming for different things like that and then later on we find some different ways that it can help in the assistive technology space. This one was actually made with people in mind with complex communication disorders like cerebral palsy or ls. Now it does say that. In addition to the brain control interface it can also be controlled by head movements voice commands or a physical switch so basically the ideas as six non invasive electrodes that are placed on the wearer's head creating a live connection between the user and the device. Now it's not going to read your mind and not everything that you're thinking but it can identify brain activity related to looking in pointing. So if you really think of i control devices and other ways that folks control augmented communication devices. This gives them a whole new way to be able to do that. So that also as machine learning algorithms that will improve the connection between the where and the headset overtime so like many other devices this is actually able to learn from you and to see what you actually want and how you might be able to do. It doesn't have a whole lot of information win. This will actually come out. Does it as they started some beta testing programs. But really the ideas that you would wear this headset and much. Like an aa see device. You would have either different icons or you could actually just type things out by basically thinking of where you are pointing or where you are looking or where you might be moving your eyes or what. You're trying to get out.

No pun intended to autonomous travel for individuals with disabilities today. We're going to learn a little bit more about them and about the technology that they're working on nicholas richard welcome to the show. Thanks for having us fish you guys. I'm really excited to kind of talk about this technology and how it can really help folks but before we do that. Could you tell our listeners. A little bit about yourselves yes sure. We're from the vami lab at the university main. This is laboratory that's focusing on human technology. Interfaces we've been in existence for twelve or thirteen years now nick nyerere been collaborative partners on this for that time and we almost jokingly say that we have this academic marriage but Yeah we were studying the way in which humans interface with the technology in front of us and we do a lot of work into way. Finding especially blind visually impaired assisted technology. Been doing a lot of work into virtual and augmented reality and how to use some of that technology to assist with you know even simple tasks like writing a bike for example in the fog. Yeah we've also started to move into biotechnology as well as a little background so we bring kind of an interesting background to our studies. My background is experimental. Psychology and rick has a background in lots of things including interactive design and collaboration. And so we're really interested in and we're in kind of a computer science department broadly defined. So we're really interested in saying. Well how can we take. Knowledge of human understanding human interactions and lead to better technology and information access and so we tell them very strongly from the human side and also from our own first person experiences. I'm congenitally blind. And so i bring a lot of my own phenomenology of my own. Use of technology frustation frustrations with technology frustrations with information access into the types of things that we designed to be multi sensory you mentioned bio inspired designs. How can we make technology be more like how our brain works using all of our senses instead of just visual design.

"If someone would make me breakfast and teach me something at the office home. Yeah, that'd be all good. Definitely. Exactly. So so that's through education is basically how I came to Tech because I had a dog Opportunity to move into a software company and to start up their training programs. So it was adult education. So the education piece of the technology transferred me in to the next step on that and I've just been with software companies ever since in in different capacities and different roles. I think no matter what my role has been off. My title has been I think I'm still an educator because so much of what we do particular to this role that I'm at now, we're a real Edge Innovation. And so part of of getting people up and going on that is just teaching them, you know, and that's all changed management is is just educating people and help overcoming Their Fear and things like that. So so that's that's how I got into technology. That's who I am. Basically. Yeah, does that you mentioned it? You're in change management job? Yeah, so we don't know who you work for or so. I work for a company called cognitive spark and whereas software is the service company and we're our software runs off Microsoft hololens, which are you I don't have you very familiar with the goggles the Microsoft hololens. No, it's not a VR. It's it's called mixed reality or augmented reality. Oh, I had a lens here ready to show your shoes. So what it is for really in a nutshell a Microsoft hololens. It's a Windows 10 computer that you strapped your head. Basically, it's all it is. It's got the it's got the goggles and so virtual reality are those goggles that you put on any can't see anything else right now. He's immersed in a virtual environment and then you have mixed reality, which is you've got a type of a smart glasses or goggle or something on you can wage. See everything in your environment around you but there's maybe some things that are overlaid. So have you ever been in a car that has like the speedometer thing that projects I just saw em. Okay. Yeah. I just saw that on the on a commercial. Okay. So it it extends out the speed limit. Yeah, right exactly. And then there's mixed reality which is what we do in life books often interchanged the mixed in the augmented reality bit and with the mixed and augmented reality still see your full environment, but you can overlay things and interact with them. So that's our specialty is week. We can create or teach you to create say like a 3D hologram. So and we use our platform our software platform for remote workers support. So in a nutshell if you're somewhere and you don't know how to do something you can put on the hololens you can do a video initiate a video communication with an expert job.

Some more examples of companies that are killing it with this augmented reality thing sure I would say Pepsi has several. I'm sure everybody's heard of Pepsi Pepsi. Have they have several examples out there and they have several opportunities for you to access. Augmented reality and coke as well Because Pepsi did it coca to do it It makes sense. I mean so. That's out there. A lot of the Sports if you pay attention especially Oh. Here's a great example. If you're watching a football game and they talk about the line is the line of Scrimmage Zuri I the first down do football but anyways all I know is I want. I'm watching it and they talk about this first down or whatever and all of a sudden on the on the field appears Green Line or a blue line. That's augmented reality. That line is not. They're they're using the screen to actually lay that content over the existing Over what's actually there and so so that's another example But the NFL will have ads where you can You can also add the NBA. The sports teams like to use that in the end. You can scan them with an APP or just use your camera on your device and actually see something some sort of experience or something else that happens. Sometimes you can play a game That type of stuff Heinz Ketchup has a kind of fun. Augmented Reality Element to it. I will I will drop a A local reference. I have a friend who owns a gym.

"Hello you lovely words. Thank you for joining me. Yes I am taking a risk and I am recording a fifth episode in a row. I can't believe it today. Is Is December twenty first and you know what that is. It is the winter solstice. I hope you know about it but if you don't It's the shortest this day of the year after today. Everything looks up. We get more and more light every day until June twenty first ish and then it goes the other direction but now things are going to start looking up. Don't you hate it when you leave work and it's like four pm or whenever leave work and it's dark already. A that is the worst worst. Okay the first word for this episode is Auger effect capital a U. G. E. R. Second Word E. F. F. E. C. T.. This this is a noun from nineteen twenty eight a process in which an atom has been ionized through the mission of electron with energy in the X ray arrange undergoes a transition in which a second electron is emitted rather than an X. Ray photon called also auger process and this is from appear via Auger Agir maybe he died in nineteen ninety eight nineteen ninety three and he was a French physicist yet his name is probably we are. I don't know what that scripture was. So we are going to move onto auger electron or maybe Agir Electron Oh actually really. OJ OJ. That's how it's pronounced because it says that okay so that was Oj a effect and this is OJ electron. This is a noun from nineteen thirty nine and electron emitted from an atom in the OJ OJ. Ajay effect and next is OJ electron spectroscopy. I know this words. Just say get it out of your mouth all J. Electron spectroscopy. This is a noun from nineteen seventy an instrumental method for determining the chemical composition of a material surface by means of analysis of the energies of OJ electrons emitted from the surface called also OJ spectroscopy. That is not in the dictionary. Next we have the WORD OUGHT A U G H T. It is the I form. It is a Perron Pronoun. I guess that's says P. R. O. N. It is from before the twelfth century number. One we have these synonym anything number. Two synonyms are all and everything as in four ought eyecare also is in for ought we know no So basically means like we know everything I care about everything and I will throw out my own two cents if you throw when n at the beginning that means not Which is one word for zero So it basically just means nothing. So we'll we'll get to that and IT'LL I. I expect it to be the opposite of this one. This is from old English I wit eight W. H. T. which is from a A which means ever plus wit which means creature Or thing creature or thing so basically it it means Everything everything ever every creature or thing and there's more at the words I a.. Y. E. and white W. I G. H. T.. Now now we have the second form of art. It is an adverb from the thirteenth century. It is archaic and it means The synonym is at all now. We have the third form of ought it is a noun ferrum eighteen. Seventy two one we have these synonyms zero and Cypher. C. I I. P. H. E. R.. Or would it be sicker. I Dunno number two is Archaic Synonyms are non entity and nothing So it is interesting We'll get to the Animal Gina. Minute number three is plural. So what's the first decade of a century. And but yeah I guess now that I think about it ought I have heard as zero not think also zero but let's look at the etymology because it says it is an alternative of the word not an A. U. G. H. T. and it says resulting from false division of a not so I guess in the evolution of that word it just somehow got turned into ought but I can't wait to get to the word not and find out what that says. Okay next. We have Ajit Ajit a U G. I Thi this is is a noun from eighteen. o four one a usually black or dark green mineral that consists of luminous pyroxene and is found especially Ashley in rocks number two. We have these synonym pyroxene or pyrrhic. Seen One of those Let's see autistic is an an adjective and it says this is from Latin auditees or audits odd odd auditees something that means a precious stone and that is from the Greek auditees not is now we have augment. It is the I form. It is a verb for rum of the Fourteenth Century transitive definitions is our first one to make greater more nerve numerous larger or more intense as in the impact of the report was augmented augmented by. Its timing weird. Examples people number two to add and augment to number three we just have the synonym supplement. As in augmented her income. Now we have the transitive definition which says to become augmented. You'd finally we have a synonym for all. It is the word increase augment her spelled with an E. R. or an are is a noun and the etymology says it's from Latin Augmentin which means to increase from Algeria which means to increase. And there's more at the word EEK e. k. e.. Now we have these second form of augment it is actually the so the emphasis is different. It this one is augment the other one was augment. This is a noun from sixteen seventy one a vowel prefixed or a lengthening of the initial vowel to mark pass time especially in Greek and Sanskrit verbs. Could you please give me an example. No okay thanks now we have augmentation. This is a noun from the fourteenth century. One a the act or process of augmenting. One be the state of being augmented number. Two something that augments synonym is addition. Now we have augmented give. It is the I form. It is an adjective from the a fifteenth century one able to augment two indicating large size and sometimes awkwardness or unattractiveness. And and it is used in Used of words and fixes and compared to the word diminutive now we have the second form of augmented entity of it is a noun from eighteen o four and augmented word or affects and I need to figure out where we are going to end this episode. We're going to do there. Were coming up. We're coming up. It's coming up to the end. Where did we leave off? We left off there now. We have to go to the word augmented. This is an adjective from the fifteenth century. In italics it says of a musical interval. So that's what we're talking about. The definition made one half half-step greater than major or perfect as an augmented fifth. Okay so in music the Let's see how can I describe this quickly. A normal fifth would be a C. and a g Those would be two of the white keys on a piano. The Sea he is the one to the left of the two black keys and the G. is basically four steps up so they are five five have notes away from each other essentially maybe And so when you augment it you take the the fifth and you raise it up a half step so you would take it to a g sharp also called a flat. Does that confuse. You probably saw an augmented fifth. I think is a C.. And a g she's sharp Or an augmented see augmented fifth. That's what that would be okay. Moving on to augmented Matrix. This is a noun from from eighteen. Sixty one a matrix whose elements are the coefficients of a set of simultaneous linear equations with the constant terms of the equations entered in in and in an added column and finally for this episode. We have augmented reality This is something that has gotten a huge huge in the last couple of years and I don't think it's going away Definitely not going away not at least for a long time until something better comes along. This is is a noun from nineteen. ninety-three have a tickle in my throat it is an enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device as a smartphone camera. Also the technology used to create augmentation reality and my two cents is that it is abbreviated as a are and I actually just saw video today where I think Google has In their phones or some of their phones they now have the ability to create depth information. Because I think their phones have multiple cameras and so they can tell how far away things are Which is very cool for augmented reality? Because that means the thing that they put in there for instance The one of the examples they showed was a cat a digital cap walking around Your living room say and it now knows where the catch should go. Oh and if something is in front of it it knows to put the thing like a chair in front of the cat. It can do that on the fly. It's crazy Also they showed pictures or showed examples of like Josh so many different things like things rain literally rain and It the rain looking like it's landing on the right spot Given the distance away from you it was super fascinating aided so I will maybe pick that as the word of the episode. Let's see Yeah let's pick augmented reality as the word of the episode. It's it's very cool. I I have have back and forth feelings about it Technology algae in general so. That's it thank you very much for listening. I hope you have enjoyed your winter solstice. Hey if you're on the other side of the world if you're in the southern hemisphere like Australia and New Zealand This is the longest day of the year for us. So sorry it's just GonNa go downhill from there But I hope if you're enjoying your warm weather you idiots. I want your warm weather all right thank you and goodbye..

"The road which which again was another conversation that led to today. Okay so so if I can just get the setting on this so we can imagine all this going on. This all happened in sure you're moving. You're moving around. I can hear you can you. Can I stop whatever it. Is that your hands movement and and then also by the way just to comment is I know you're kind of touching the table or touching yourself a lot. I can hear that so if you can try not to compound sit varies still. We're not computer by. Yeah we'RE NOT GONNA use your video but I could tell 'cause you're like yeah just you're you're fine. Fine I can edit out a lot but yeah we'll re re ask your question. I M asking okay so to set the context and like if I'm a visual all persons so while you are like in this lab and you're you're stewing in your brain in your living room. You're eating this happened. Not In the United States. If I'm understanding correctly this happened in China correct. What was happening while you're for years in China okay? So the the time line I I think the best way to put the time line is I'm in Los Angeles in Right after college and then About a couple of weeks before I left that job opt to start this drone delivery startup I had made a phone call two weeks of weapon in my two weeks. Notice and to that friend about a Would you WANNA do. He wants to do to delivery and back my head. I WANNA put air soft gun on this drone. Let's just do it then put in my two weeks notice To just just go to San Francisco and do that so from there with the San Francisco. A couple months into San Francisco I realized drone deliveries definitely not the path forward for me In regards to being at that time already a saturated market and I didn't I didn't even realize it from there actually I I spent a year in San Francisco. Didn't through what's the best path forward and in that year essentially I god tinkered with farming drone like indoor drone for real estate All kinds of all kinds of stuff Essentially trying to figure out and pitching all the while each different iteration and making some technical pieces of each for each solution trying to figure out what does the market A. B. C.'s and Investors telling me that they're interested in and how can Amir that with what I'm interested listed in an overtime I is essentially got to the point. Where oaken none of these are working? I might as well make something that I like. Because what they what. They're what they think they like isn't isn't producing tangible results for me. So if I'm GONNA spend all my days Essentially making prototypes. Some is will make prototypes of something. That I actually care about so at that point. I started making essentially drones stuff that was entertaining myself and eventually I was starting starting to share that with people and then that got to the point. Where saying oh like this stuff's actually really fun? This could be real like new wave of Toy and then that's where it kind of came full circle back to my childhood of. Oh Wow it turns out like the toy I was looking for. I've accidentally just made out of frustration that there's no oh Enterprise market segment. That is easy for an individual to go capture so In essentially essentially pitching that right away almost got me into like three different investment opportunities brought brought me to China and essentially so And that's where the China comes in see spent four years there or is it going just going back and forth for years. I mean they're it has a back and forth but it was like after eight months after nine months and this last time I went back I was physically present present at a out of the country over three hundred and thirty five days of the of the calendar year and that was kind of the Dow was the most hardcore that was way too much but but yeah so that was a that was like the last four years and that was essentially. The challenge only made these cool games. But how do I turn this into a product that can be sold and What I essentially realized out of those four years was no matter how cool my software game was and how cool the experience? This was battery technology. At least today isn't GonNa let me provide experience past like five minutes and so no matter how I changed the size no matter how I changed now no matter how you change the algorithm. The physics are just such that you just. This can't create an experience that is both safe in your face and and long lasting it just you have to Yep to pick two of the three or four or what have you and so So yeah I made a lot of compelling compelling pieces of tack attack a lot of compelling demos but ultimately that's what a to our our first commercial product which was this this robot that replace laser tag and essentially the reason we went for we transition to the ground robot was was like I said. It's they last longer. There saver and they can do nearly everything from a software standpoint that the drone would do other than fly but the experience itself was still the same if if that makes sense so so what does not too much information all at once but now it's super interesting. Were the investors helping you with strategy in addition into product creation. Like on how you'RE GONNA get this market. I'm assuming so if it's helping you you know kind of switch your product it. A great question the D. investors that brought me out to China they have is very specific program. It's a three month program and essentially after you pass that three months threshold. Their your investment thesis is such that they they can't help you without going against their investment thesis. They don't WanNa put another second second into a company past three months because now a new company is going to come and they gotta play the numbers game of today. Continue to In a put put a little bit into lot and see what sprouts up rather ham like continue to invest time into each one Ah and to essentially for the first three months there was there was there is an okay amount of of back and forth collaboration but ultimately what lead To discovering manufacturing discovered these things was the more more of the opportunity of circumstance that they they have an environment where companies are coming in now the office that have manufactured before they have sold stuff they have An there are folks in the office that help source factories in these kind of things and Essentially the collaboration of a Collaborating with people there's would lead to discovering How to go forward if that makes sense so I remember you talked to me about this before so? I'm kind of like trying to get back in the timeline. I'm a little confused here because you get so much feedback and direction of of what to do as Juke. This was that time you spent in a tent was was this before after right. That was in San Francisco Song case here. I was trying to figure out. How do I go from Plymouth Garage? This idea of doc enterprise zones to eventually coming into. Let's let's make a drawing for entertainment purposes and so essentially that that was. Hey Hey the timeline is essentially I I I was there a few months. I realized delivery drones is not a market I once spent one more second in and then I need to figure out what is the market and by that time. I've already left my job. I have already experienced what is it like to we had created some prototypes. I've I've realized how. How does it feel to actually make something that that you can kind of? Put Your stamp on and and show that value to when and go through that discovery process and I realize like okay though. This was an epic failure. These these couple of months for me. on in some respects. It was it did. Show me that I think I was on the right track a professionally speaking And I just needed to have some time to figure out nope what exactly is my next move and for me if I would have gone back to work fulltime. There's I I can't imagine I would've had the space to explore to end up where I am today. And Essentially Leveraged I leveraged my time And and the way I lived in a tent in the backyard for really really cheap In order to give myself the space and time to discover what it his I needed to build next So yeah and For me it sounds crazy by the you know technically lived in the house during the day. I just slept slept in the ten so only in Silicon Valley. I mean honestly only yeah. It's not as bad as it sounds but but you'd be surprised. Actually the amount of rent I paid to to to live in the tent in China I lived in a four star hotel. I I could live in the four-star hotel. Yeah that's just some perspective of of of the Silicon Valley compared to the rest of the world. Okay so so okay so technically oh you are living I mean I'm assuming you showered and ate in that Howard and a wholesome worked in the house but I slept in the time okay again. I'm taking one more step back. You worked in that house but was it you sucked in the tent. Because that was what the rent was and you just pay some additional nominal fee because of the use of the shared space or was and you chose to do that or did. was there a bedroom available for you to sleep in that house like a normal person. Okay yeah that's a good question. So so what it is is it was initially an airbnb house so the intent to the house was to rent every room and that does the the space space itself was the was the Was the asset of the owner. And the the way that at the end their career was to root out those those spaces they a appreciated what I was trying to do and They would've actually probably let me. Ah Room but to me I looked at it like okay now. Taking food like money off the table for them to for me to explore. And if you're right about that so the way we met in the middle was that's okay. I'll just pay a little bit or attend the backyard. Use all the facilities And then they can still rat all the rooms and make the money that they would normally That's very I hate us. I I know I know we kind of went off on tangents totally cut different different fork in the road there but the fact that he told me lived in a tent. I'm like Oh gosh. Can you be more cycle cliche. But all these Silicon Valley based company came from somewhere and you know Hewlett Packard has got a garage. You've got a ten story which I love when I applaud it. Because it's you knew you were trying to figure it out and most peop- I mean let's be honest list. Ninety nine percent of the population would have gone for the same job and said well figure that out later. We all know how that story goes. You're fifty going. What did I what just happened to my life so I applaud you that I mean I'm going to be honest with you? I lived in his head. I would not content. I mean I don't know if fits partly partly like a self fulfilling prophecy but when I was young I for some reason always when I first heard the stories of the jobs and all these these things and then also simultaneously you hear about celebrities or actors and the really successful ones their origin story. And you always hear a a lot of them you hear some really crazy trials and tribulations and so for the most part I kind of knew going in that I was like okay if I'm GonNa try Friday an entrepreneur. It's kind of the same as saying I'm going to be an actor. signed An essentially you have to be willing to be be the Guy Flipping the pizza sign with an engineering degree while trying to act if you want to try to be an actor And so I kind of knew that going in that. Hey I gotta be willing to go so all in that. There's nothing left before the world probably will let that come to fruition. So I don't know if it's because I thought of that before that's what happened or if that's what gave me the strength to do it in the first place I'm I'm not sure which one's which but That that that's something something I can say is that I kind of knew going into it. That like there is a worst case scenario and I'm willing to ride out the storm. Whatever that scenario is and luckily my scenario was pretty damn good? I mean the House was Nice. I had a shower. I had food you know and It's San Francisco's. There's probably like ten days of bad weather total that will year so In general is pretty easy. Can I ask a personal or candid question. I know we simply wouldn't go personal but can ask you a personal question. Sure okay okay. You got a degree electrical engineer. You're an engineer. You went to the University of Nebraska. Go husker's yes. Yes you got it right because I get it right. Okay do you like.

"And industry leaders to understand the leading trends and innovations that continue to push the envelope in today's marketplace. Thank thank you for joining us on the better series podcasts. I'm not thin your host for today's dynamic conversation. Virtual and augmented reality are too hot topics right now in marketing and business before long both will have made their way into the mainstream companies wants to be a part of implementing these exciting technologies but they're stumped on where to start so oh here with us on better series is Clifton Dawson. CEO of green lights inside who will help us discover great virtual and augmented reality opportunities for Small Businesses Clifton. Thank you for joining us on this wonderful topic to be with you yeah and you know as we approached Small Business Week. I know our listeners will all appreciate hearing just just how they can begin to think outside the box by using virtual and augmented reality of their own so they can grow and be successful. Let's dive right in and get talking on this it. Can you tell us about green light insights and give a general overview of what augmented and virtual reality is and how it's emerge over the last few decades so again thank you for having me grew inside the research and consulting firm that provides best in class market intelligence about how consumers and in businesses use virtual and augment reality what that means is. We have a dedicated staff of industry analyst market researchers and consultants who provide market report analytics and insights for clients who are both large and small firms who spend the globe and who are from a diverse set of industries from the electronics and telecommunication factor meeting entertaining and to numerous other industrial sectors this virtual and augmented reality are two important topic as mentioned they're two of related technologies doc that will change the way that we work learn and play now virtuality at Bertrand augmented reality are two technologies stories that have been around for a very long time by the modern technology can be traced most directly back to a couple carry it the first period is the nineteen twenties when the first large-scale practical usage of VR was in flight simulation training systems that the air force us to prepare works half a million new air airmen for World War. Two through the second important period was the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties when the first head mounted displays which most directly resemble the technology today were developed. I mean nineteen sixty eight's a a professor named Ivan Sutherland created the first head mounted display the US an immersive application which was also the first head mounted display way with motion tracking and computer tranquility by modern standard. The viewing experience extremely primitive device would have the in fact there was mounted to stealing but the technology has made drastic improvements over the last few decades to where we are today. That's why we're having this conversation. the definitions of virtual augments reality they can also get really complex. I'm happy to walk you through a our definition of of that if that would be helpful absolutely go ahead and walk us through tail. Yeah Yeah for those who are that's virtual and augmented reality the best way way to differentiate between the two are virtual reality games to place someone into a new reality other than the one he or she she currently inhabits this reality surround the person in a more immersive experience augmented reality on the other hand aims to augment augment someone's reality by placing data or digital objects into his or her existing reality now an important caveat is that there's there's always been a continuum between sort of the completely virtual and the completely real which which therefore encompasses all the possible variations of real starts watch acts which is why there's so much confused about these technologies and let that definition and and helping US distinguish between a two and a earlier you mentioned that it's it's GonNa change the way we all work. Learn and play an Clifton with that said. Could you tell our listeners why now why is today's environment right for this kind of technology yeah. That's a really important question because as I mentioned these technologies have been around in some form or fashion or a very long time and so there there will nocco economic and technological forces sort of driving our march toward virtual and augmented reality and and you know if I pause for a moment and can focus on three I'd like to do that so but I is has to be list computing giving power. It's really only been about three decades ago that personal computers became accessible but they really weren't powerful enough could give you an example their original apple MAC computer. I wish I had just been a computational power to allow for very simple. Treaty Games cost cost about six thousand dollars today dollar but today computing has become so powerful and compact that they allowed for Rich Three D. experiences so that same MAC computer would cost about a thousand dollars. It'd be able to power the most content virtual inaugural reality experiences our application important force is that the technologies that are critical for virtual and augmented reality hardware and software products are are finally good enough and widely available an example. This is artificial intelligence which I'm sure guys took a lot about improvements in in the I is is now allowance allowing for everyday people to Curry eight brings complex virtual augmented reality technology. Um unkindly really important. One is that I g in is on the horizon and so the communication network will soon allow for us all to be able to stream massive amounts of data and service over the cloud and for many of the virtual augmented reality experiences back in the nineties. You could only run in a research laboratory. you could do some the comfort of your home or for or for awesome. That's great so can you tell us a little bit. How businesses can both bent from benefit from both of these technologies. What's the value therefore businesses yeah absolutely virtual reality are are wise it configured as two of the most impactful technologies toward the future and for for businesses especially small businesses with limited resources it's very important to be specific and how they can benefit from technologies and so I liked the lump a lot of the benefits of these technologies into two broad buckets for businesses the first has to do with armed but typically product of other stuff for for any business that has a new product design or engineering nehring function there. There's real potential positive impact for complementing the development process west. West virtual reality to visualize news three D. model to collaborate around design concrete benefits Jonathan they are lowered costs related to quality. there are approved moved odds to to the success of your product which you know for any business the date that remains really low. Oh with eighty percent of mostly products stealing in virtual reality can lead to reduce time Barca by meeting customer news accurately the first time around he thought there so the big bucket of benefit Kosta do with talent and learning and development and and for businesses especially small businesses that must invest heavily. It's your their employees. This is a real source of benefit using virtual reality that and content and applications can effectively reduce new employees onboard in time and improve constructiveness while on the job. I love that I'm a geek for human resources. I love that this could be used to really enhance training on the job. What about industries Clifton. Is there any particular kind of small business or industry she that should be thinking about virtual reality or augmented reality yeah yeah absolutely so so there there are there many industries for which the R. Y. Is is high enough then achievable fast enough to make this to make the required up front investment and ongoing maintenance worth it you know if I could focus maybe on one example that might be pertinent to this audience the factor now the examples of big box retailers such as Lowe's those and Walmart but there are also small retailers that are used in virtual reality to to train the employees Tales Florida personnel I'm example recently that we worked with a small retailer West or four stores in thirty employees and that that one rowdy and their new training play training process and and what we've found is that compared to you know the technical technical processes traditional classroom learning by creating three sixty videos various real world scenarios on and having the hires go through simulations as a supplement the small retailer was able to more effectively train on the usage of complex star equipment and and surprisingly the retailer noticed that customer satisfaction scores were actually higher because is employees were more effective while on the job in dealing with customer interaction because they've been in the situation before there was empathy. I love that example. It's like getting the hands on experience before actually having to be hands on that is really a great example Clifton Tin. What's what's next. What haven't we seen for the world of virtual and augmented reality that we should be on the lookout for particularly as it relates to small businesses yeah absolutely I your after the last couple of years that have been largely characterized as not living up to two expectations for adoption at the technology twenty nine on is is really exciting year and and that's because you have the pace of.

"A lot more digestible for people sore sore almost empowering consumers if you will or or just regular people in understanding their sort of traditional financial services going to a bank versus having this data in front front of you and and now being able to as you said sort of explore further and understand it better which empowers them right yeah. Can you share some specific acidic examples of applications virtual reality infant tek absolutely so going off about example that I just mentioned There was a AH very interesting application. that I think is currently pilot phase right now. steadily investments are actually based I believe right here out of Boston where I am there. INNOVATION LAB is developing in partnership with Amazon Web Services what they're calling a virtual chart uh-huh so not only does that you know everything I was talking about before with the immersive data visualization and giving you a new perspective on your your finance your information and that sort of thing but they also incorporated a virtual assistance so an a sort of agent agent that is in this space with you and you can instruct it to sort of give you a specific numbers or figures about you know pretty much which anything that you could you could bother asking you know how's the Carmi Index is doing today. Great something something really natural and easy to process like that sure and we think that's extremely powerful tool for people especially once the the party becomes a little bit more commonplace in the home sure sure that kind of leads leads me to the next question which is and thanks for sharing that example what are some of the implications for consumers as far as benefiting financially from these scalable digital tools tools like like the example you shared yeah. That's the that's the key question right that that a lot of people are thinking about is how they can benefit financially from some of these tools. I think for most people I think the apparent value might not necessarily come from you know reaping you know cashflow or income or anything like that from it but I think it is immensely valuable enhancing our ability to engage with the information much more quickly and much more impatiently than we ever thought possible like you mentioned earlier. It's all about empowering people you know. I think it helps us makes us better at dealing with the IT really sort of information dense landscape that it's inside our phones and computers I think especially in in here in the US we could all probably be a little the data literate by using similar technology we can sort of skirt data a little bit and you know have more intuitive ways of interacting with star or financial information or really any kind of information that you could quantitatively range sure. He knew that it kind of gives me well. The first thing I think about is again. Maybe benefiting financially if they're educated enough on all of this data that's in there so my question is how would regular consumer sort of educate themselves about some of these sort of digital tools and how they can work to their benefit. You know that's a great question and and really more than anything else about educating yourself on first of all the technologies that are out there and they're available to you. I think certainly there. There are certain financial institutions that have been a little bit better about integrating this technology into their their workflows. you know fidelity. Obviously is a a little ahead of the game on that one. I remember back in twenty fourteen. I think it was Bank of America that rolled out in limited locations video conferencing so that was another just sort of interesting thing that we might see come back. It's it's you know depending on the direction that the market takes sure. I think it's also important for people to remember. Remember that you know in a very sort of data heavy world that we live in now. It's important to understand what data you're you're. You're giving to your financial institution what you're providing them with how they're using it and what you get in return right. That's something else that's going to really. We help you become empowered and reap the most value out of service that you have so our source of just being educated around protecting yourself herself as you mentioned kind of what data you're sharing as we are. You know inundated with tons of information and data that helps make things easier for us. It also could leave consumers kind of open with all of their information at their own fingertips right. If they're doing things that they would have normally done you know with an wealth management investment person right now. They're doing it themselves on their phone for example or their laptop and their information is out there so they need to be aware with what they're doing with that not really great examples. Thank you JC as we wrap up here can you share some sort of general predictions for trending virtual reality and augmented reality in Fintech. I'm wondering we'll traditional banking become obsolete. That's a that's a good question and I think it's fair to before we even start answering task. What traditional banking is anymore right. Queen is in in in the last few years. We've seen the rise of alongside alongside the on the Internet a lot of for example online only banks you know the the the allies of the world so to speak Pre Internet financial institutions have certain come along way already in terms of enriching their offerings with this technology things. I've I've mentioned before I think once once adoption of the hardware picks up especially over the next three to four years and that's both you know these simple virtuality headsets that are available now to something much more forward facing like augmented reality smart glasses that can be you know worn all the time and they're supplement supplement or eventually a substitute for for smartphones I think we could really see Fintech an ecommerce make the jump to X. are just as made the jump to smartphones. you know over the last five years we know that the the tech companies in the platform provider see value in bringing this this new form of competing to life and I think it's just a question of teasing out what parts of the traditional banking experience work in and what parts don't so for for example The the data visualization. is probably really compelling. You know you can make maybe that's even an up sell for for early adopters of technology meanwhile maybe interacting in the way that we've been doing you know via text typing on computers and smartphones probably doesn't work super well an extra if you've ever been in a headset you know it's it really agonizing to the type of remote control. Essentially I think maybe some some of these Fintech companies might make the effort to add voice interfaces and you know some sort of rebuild a little bit of that sociology the and and trust frankly that they need with their customers sure well certainly a very exciting time in I'm feeling like the jetsons is lifestyle may be here before we know it or maybe it's maybe it's here now slowly but this is really been a cool conversation. We really appreciate your insights J. C. Thank you so much for joining us today. We really appreciate you sure and you share absolutely..

"So we can see that as certainly emerged in enhanced in the last last few decades even regarding the financial services sector what current technologies are disrupting the traditional financial services so over agreement green light we in the vast majority of the new extra technology that's being adopted and doing a lot of the disruption in financial services and even ECOMMERCE is serving a want to the first is reducing the friction in any kind of transactional experience by automating or streamlining as much of the process as possible usually this achieved through some form of computer vision. This is the term that we use when we talk about the ability of a machine to to take in data from a camera or some kind of optical sensor and interpret it without the help of a human might be a subsection of AI. This is key software function that sort of powers most of what we consider augmented reality today but it also helps everything from the supercomputer at a data data center somewhere to the during your smartphone to recognize surpluses lines shapes which is helpful you know from mundane tasks ask like remote deposit which you might be familiar with to some really more advanced features dealing with biometric recognition and maintaining a the level of security for your stuff and the second use of them are sick. -nology is data visualization really efficient data visualization so there are a lot parts of finance even at the consumer level that can be extremely challenging for people to navigate. You know we're talking. Do you have investments certain financial sectors actors to have ways of presenting information to you that maybe is not the most efficient or most intuitive right talking about really complicated graphs Aston tables and charts and that sort of thing we're seeing now that x-ers is a helpful supplement to that and that you can explore data by being immersed in it and that new perspective. Ford's you a lot of extra breathing room and makes you know the information.

"JC devices and platforms analysts with green light insights a global leader in virtual and augmented reality market intelligence is joining us today with offices in San Francisco Boston Denver. We've really appreciate you taking the time to speak with us today. JC I really appreciate you having me. I'm very excited for the opportunity not to talk about this stuff. I very rarely get to to vamp about exciting new sector. It is very exciting and JC to start with can can you tell us a little bit about green light insights and just also give us a general overview of what augmented and virtual reality is for anyone who doesn't know trek so first of all green light insights is a intelligence firm where as you mentioned based in San Francisco Denver in Boston our specialty realty is providing syndicated market research and intelligence services for any number of companies in the virtual reality reality space we actually internally and in our research referred to this entire group of technologies as A. R. which stands for variable reality that's sort of an easy catch all to describe all these technologies which to some degree you know Super Steve. Your your senses you know your your sound and all that stuff help you interact with computers in in a certain way I think right now we're a very exciting time for Exxon. there's been a lot of advances in hardware that have previously been using smartphones that if made X. are much more viable even at the consumer level. You know you could right now. Go to Walmart pick the virtual reality headset for two hundred bucks you can download any number of augmented reality asked using your smartphone absolutely free and that's due in part to these advances in smartphone hardware but also in part two to the excitement from these greater platform providers to smartphone manufacturers and these social media sites and all this stuff coup a AH understood that this is going to be big part of how we interact with computers future sure.

"Of sensor data, and that kind of captures a bunch of different conditions naturally. So one idea here is that if you have people who are messing around with augmented reality applications, they're walking around there, essentially waving their camera over the real world. You're picking up a location aware visualizations of the world location aware. Really aware visions of the world, and you can stitch these together we had done a few shows with map Larry that is doing something kind of similar where the people who are essentially crowd sourcing all of these smartphone images, and because they're positionally aware they can map Larry in the cloud can stitch all these together, and they can get basically a vision of the physical world who stitched together from these different phones. And then you can do all kinds of interesting things with that. Like, you can you can do do object segmentation. So that you can you can actually classify the objects that are in the real world. But let's let's talk a little bit about the stitching together process. So so people are taking these videos with their phone or they're just taking these images with their phone. And then these are getting passed to you in the cloud, and then you're getting a real time or you're getting a positionally aware mapping of the physical world. Is that what you're doing? Yeah. That's right. So it's the mapping portion is not kind of designed to necessarily be real time the localization and tracking portion is and so one way to think of it. So consider consider the fall in case. So you have a space say the MoMA map. So maybe we mapped, and maybe you mapped it when you set up the experience, whatever it is. Now, you have another kind of consumer coming into the space and tracking themselves in the space, or ultimately trying to view, this experiences hair content. So what's what's happening? There is that the this user is sending sensor data to our back end. And in real time. Our back end is reconciling that censor data against the three D representation of the space that we have at the time now as synchronous ly- the stream of sensor data that is coming in from that person is being stored. Elsewhere and later will will go into a cue to update the map. Up and keep it sort of up to date or more full or many times, it'll increase the spatial extent. Or or whatever it is. So the mapping portion the updating portion we would call it internally we call it the merging portion, that's that's happening. A synchronous Lii in order to sort of the goal of that as essentially keep the map or the space up-to-date and big the tracking portion, which is what you need to do when you actually want to view the content is having real time in the key criteria. The key kind of metric there will be latency. So tell me about that problem of stitching together images or videos to make a map of the real world. How the last I remember about? Well, just tell me about what's the state of the art in terms of the research or are are there. Well defined algorithms for doing that. Or you kind of at the cutting edge. Like, how hard of a problem is that today there are well defined? I would call them approaches or techniques. I mean algorithms fair enough there. Well-defined mature algorithms for what's called in. What would be called in the computer vision community structure from motion or reconstruction? The those would be used interchangeably and those typically take as input an unordered set of images. That's like the classical problem statement, given an unordered set of images oftentimes, the the techniques would be motivated by a desire to sort of take community photo collections from safe flicker or whatever and use those. So given an unordered set of images build the representation of of the three D space that sort of the classical problem statement, we have a slightly different problem statement, which is given a set of kind of sessions from devices build that three D representation of space. So the difference. There is well two things. One is we have video. So we have some temporal consistency that we can rely on which typically speaking SF, I'm can't and the second is that we have much more sensor data than just images we have gyroscope. We have accelerometer we have GPS. Magnetometer, and we also have a arcade estimates or a Arcor estimates..
