The God Who Suffers: How Far God Will Go for Man's Salvation
"The title of my message is the god who suffers when we think of god. We consider the fact that got us. Writers got his holy got his loving. And god is good. But here's something else to consider about. God as we focus on the death of jesus god has suffered. Why would anyone want to suffer if they didn't have to but he did suffer. I mean he didn't have to. He didn't want to but he chose to suffer. Listen to is as description of what jesus who was god in human form went through when he died on the cross in isaiah fifty three we read. He was despised and rejected by men. A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. He is born our grief and carried our sorrows yet we esteemed him stricken smitten by god and afflicted. He was wounded for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment for our peace was upon him and by his stripes. We are. He'll he was a man of sorrows or suffering. That was jesus. But why did god suffer answer because he loved and he loves and that means it he enters into are suffering as well he enters into the suffering of those who've lost loved ones he enters into the suffering of any person who is in pain of some kind. You need to know that god cares. God understands god suffers. He understands what you are going through. So if you're going through any kind of suffering no this you're not alone. Jesus has been there and he's walked in your shoes. Listen to this passage in hebrews two. It says it was necessary for jesus to be meet in every respect like us. His brothers and sisters so he could be are merciful and faithful high priest before god and then he could opera sacrifice it would take with the sins of the people since he himself is gone through suffering. Mt sion is able to help us when we are being attempted. So you're saying. I'm being tempted right now. I'm going through hardships right now. I've been abandoned by people i love. Jesus has been there. He knows what it's like say. I've lost a loved one. He knows what that's like. So you're not alone and you're suffering but why did jesus have to suffer and die. Couldn't he have just expired. In a simple way to be scourged and beaten up the beard pulled from his face to the up to be insulted and mocked and ridiculed and humiliated. Why did he have to die. Such a cruel death. Listen to this because there was no other way dissatisfy. The righteous demands of god. God plays by his own rules and he said the soul that's in shows shirley die and the scripture teaches without the shedding of blood. There is no forgiveness of sins in the old testament when they would sacrifice by various animals. That was a foreshadowing of things that were to come. It's unlike the death of jesus was sort of added onto that. Dan rather was pointing toward the death. Of jesus jesus was the fulfillment of all of those sacrifices as john. The baptist said of christ. He's the lamb of god. Who takes away. The sin of the world. So jesus was the fulfillment of at all all of those things where foreshadowing something to come or i could more accurately say someone to come and that someone was jesus. Listen to this calvary shows how far men will go and sin and how far god will go for man's salvation limb repeat that cavalry or the cross shows how far men will go in their sin and also how far god will go for men salvation. Jesus knew he was going to die from the very beginning and he spoke of it often. No one took his life. He laid it down of his own accord. Jesus lived in the shadow of the cross. From the moment he entered the world. Sometimes people think across was sort of an aberration or tragic turn of events where everything sort of went off the rails. No that's not it at all if that was the plan. That was the master plan. Or should i say the master's plan i remember when i was a kid and i would watch movies about jesus and i was fascinated by jesus even as a young boy. My grandmother used to have a portrait of christ hanging on her wall. And i would just look at that many times then think about jesus and whenever there was a movie about him i would watch it with great interest and i was fascinated by him but i always thought the story ended battling are that someone should rewrite this story. You see because everything is going in a perfect trajectory here comes jesus born of the virgin mary. performing miracles healing people raising the dead doing wonderful things. The greatest teachings ever heard he has a group of followers and then he gets arrested on charges and he's crucified in. Yeah he rose but still. That's not good. I didn't like that story but that is the story. That is the greatest of all stories. That was the purpose he came for. But how can something so senseless and so cruel have any purpose answer. It was the ultimate purpose and it had the ultimate beanie god. The father was the master of ceremonies at the cross. Let me repeat that again god. The father was a master of ceremonies at the cross. Sometimes people like to place the blame of the death of jesus at the feet of the jews. They'll say the jews killed him sometimes used to justify anti semitism which is always wrong but it was the fault of the jews. It wasn't a fall in particular of the romans. Listen you want to get real technical. Theological god sent. Jesus die on the cross. It was his plan. In fact the scripture tells us and isaiah fifty three ten. It was the will of the lord to crush him. He has put him degree. Romans eight thirty two. God did not spare his own son but he gave him up for us. All and then over in romans three twenty five. God put christ forward by his blood to be received by faith. And i see a fifty three ten yet. It pleases the father. Bruce him he is. Put him to that please. The father to bruce him. How could the father be pleased by. The death of his son. Only wasn't pleased by his death in particular. He wasn't pleased by the suffering. He wasn't pleased by the pain. Christ's went to. The father was pleased by the redemption. That was accomplished. He was pleased that the eternal plan of salvation was now fulfilled. He was pleased that the sacrifice of his son was complete and many of us can now believe in him for all the evil in the crucifixion. It brought about an infinite good.

"More trip to europe before christmas to explore some interesting traditions. This time in denmark as kids in america may be getting ready to leave out cookies for santa on friday and don't worry after his scientifically dubious assertions about old saint nick having magical immunity to covid nineteen. Dr fauci has since clarified that. He took a trip to the north pole to vaccinate santa claus himself. Anyways wall here in the us. It's cookies for santa. in denmark. Children leave out porridge for mischievous lives as bribe to make sure they behave the elves. Not the kids. The idea of needing to keep these elms or nisa. Happy goes back to at least the middle ages when farmers explained various bad luck and the hardships of a long winter on the nisa farm. If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow. Having dropped dead to stay on your nieces good side families began offering him a bowl of porridge. On christmas eve. Poor inge was a common staple at the time but the one for the nissan would be special made of rice instead of oats or barley boiled in milk and topped with butter. atlas obscure shares. One account of someone not leaving out the proper offering quote in one story a milkmaid designed to play a trick on her farms. Nissa hiding the butter beneath the porridge. Seen his offering on garnished the niece of flies into a rage and kills the families. Cow finishes his meal and realizes his mistake. He solves the problem by stealing a neighbor's cow and delivering it to his family's farm and quotes. So you really didn't want to get on their bad side. There are many artworks depicting the nisa as almost demonic looking elves throughout the fifteen and sixteen hundreds but by the century they had started taking on more of a happy christmas elf. Kind of look quoting again. A child sized bearded man and appointee red cap traditional garb for farmhands and quotes and met martin anderson curator at the national museum of denmark.

The nsa or even more jolly and innocence. They may still play pranks like stealing. One sock or families may nominate someone to play the role of the nsa and play small pranks on other family members throughout the month of december. But you no longer have to worry about your house's nisha killing you war your animals but people still leave the sweet porridge out for him on christmas eve although now they usually enjoy some of it themselves as well and i will say that.

Facebook faces antitrust lawsuit from federal government and states
"Fire last week week Do Do lawsuits lawsuits were were filed filed from from the the Federal Federal Trade Trade Commission Commission and and a a group group of of state state attorneys attorneys general general accusing accusing Facebook Facebook of of violating violating antitrust antitrust laws laws and and seeking seeking remedies remedies that that may lead to a break up of the social media giant. Here to tell us why it's a worthy effort is take Kim, a. Bloomberg opinion technology columnist. Is it actually pretty easy to argue that Facebook has a monopoly over social networking? I believe so. If you just look at dollars alone, I think they looked about 84 billion in wrapping last year, and if you compared to the other social networking companies like Twitter The 3.5 billion that has a couple billion, so there really is no contest in terms of actual visual ad dollars social networking working One of the remedies in the antitrust lawsuits is to have Facebook unwind, Instagram and whats app. How difficult will that be? Facebook argues, it's gonna be very difficult to unwind of cos technically, I don't believe so. I mean software, and these companies connect is acting on their own for years beforehand. Until recently, they've been trying to integrate the messaging portion of the theft. I don't think it's a big ask in terms of the praying there. Three absolute into their own individual things. I do think that's gonna be hard. For the government to get those remedies during two years. Facebook after Super best lawyers in the world is gonna be a long time. Pretty Trinity to ever be instituted if it comes to that. What does it tell you that Facebook seemingly hasn't been deterred from buying up Maura of its competitors or possible competitors. So I think you hit on a key point here is even with this greater scrutiny. We have all these anti trust investigations. Facebook is going ahead and buying the startup. They just thought like this customer service, but last month for a billion, or at least he created by it. I think that's why, as these cases go through these cases go through the court. Congressmen stacked starting next year to kind of curve. This behavior of absorbing these emerging started. What I advocate for the house, which they presented a bunch of recommendations and their 450 page antitrust investigation reporting up told him and I think the Democratic leaders She just take a step back and see what they can pass on a bipartisan basis next year. Already, several Republicans have come out and said they agree with abductor of the recognition. Not the super severe remedies. But things like increasing funding for antitrust agencies, lowering the bar for the agencies to prove that in acquisitions and think about it, So there is a lot of And that brute there that they can pass easily and next year instead of going for the home run, they should just focus on the visa, the low hanging fruit and that will have a real impact on curbing Facebook and other big technology companies from acquiring the starter. Is there any doubt any question that Facebook on Lee allowed third party access if they vowed not to compete? I don't think so. The Of lawsuits and complaints clearly outlined that all these third party act when they tried to offer functionality of features that overlapped a piece of core features. It was just cut them off in terms of actors to date on the platform. So that's probably the most egregious anti compares action that Facebook should be prohibited, restricted from and I think When the courts look at this evidence they're gonna dark restricting for hitting that Peter going forward. There's no doubt that Facebook can hire as many lawyers as it wants, and perhaps Outdo the Justice Department in that respect, But it seems as if some of the facts are uncontradicted herbal. But I do agree, but parts of Facebook defense that they played instrumental role and the eventual success of their program. I mean, there is a structure the marketing the technology. They had a critical role in making instagram go from tens of million to report Lee of doing injures today, So I do agree that That part of the sense, But that doesn't change the fact that today's reality where Facebook basically dominates the have this cold on social networking, where Three billion users a month are on their social networking platforms. So the way the competitive landscape is today. Um, I think the government has a case that because Facebook dominate the market so much Impede innovation, and there's less consumer choice for things like privacy option. Is there any indication how long the case might take to get to court in terms of inspectors have talked to you and analysts. Everyone expected a lot beard. Judging from what happen with Microsoft and its antitrust issues that used to go is this gonna take a long, long time? Thanks.
George Clooney, 'The Midnight Sky'
"A movie out right now that you've got to see called the midnight sky which my guest today george clooney directed co produced and stars in. I don't know what the actors thought of him. We'll find out some other time. Just this is the seven time you've done this so by now you're probably just impossible. I'm hard. I'm hard to live with in general here that we can al everywhere. Not as it's bad everywhere the but you know you've done a movie that would you call it science fiction or you call it something else. It really is about people who are long with the darren. Space is not many people up there five of them and you're down there in the arctic with this little girl and there's not much but it's still a movie about connection in a time where we can't make any. It's like really hard to get outside of our bubbles. So what inspired you to do this well. Initially i liked the idea of talking about you know the story about what man is capable of doing to mankind. You know and that's destroy your f- you know you and i grew up in the same basic era. Where was a week figured at some point. There be an exchange between the soviet union in the united states. And we'd all be gone duck and cover drills and that was it so we bomb was falling. Yeah it wasn't if but when we lived with movies like fail safe for Or you know on the beach when we reference in this film with the idea that you know it's not impossible and all those elements are still possible. There's other ways we could do it. Blow a hole in the atmosphere. You know base some of the shots of outside earth on Up the satellite shots of the burning of california. You know so. There's a lot of ways we could sort of blow this and so i thought that was a really interesting story to be talking about. We wrapped in february shooting and then we started to go to work in the other world. Which is you know the the post production world and we were shut down and everybody had to go home and suddenly it became really clear that That that that this world that we were in suddenly was about our inability to be near the people we loved and talk to people close to the people we loved and unfortunately he became less and less of a fiction. You know along the way you know a lot of people when they see this movie right away. They're gonna look at that beer now. You know. I've heard that you grew that thing. Did you know it self. I couldn't stop it at some point in going. Yeah has its own instagram account. Now i started it in the summer. And just let it go. You know the guys who live in the arctic you know most of them have a beer. Just protect your face so that made sense. And then i lose weight because he's dying which wasn't fun if he's like thirty five you know as an actor. I'll be sixty years not so easy you know. That's not as easy to use to be to do all that stuff. But but that's when you eat could have kept that beard for christmas so you could have been santa for the kids with the kids. Would the funny thing is my daughter. Hated it of but my son loved it. And i would go to work and i'd find a piece of half a popsicle sticks stuck in my beard that he like stuffed in it and stuff so i was. I was happy to get rid of it. Quite honestly it was it was. It was a pain but when you do a movie like this when you say. I'm going to make a movie that is about. They like to use the words like dystopia and yet it's not a hopeless movement. It's not a movie that says we're so screwed. We can't really come back from any of this. I was like the idea of redemption. You know this is a really. This is a story about a regret and deep regret and how badly and how toxic that can be and how deeply you one needs redemption and if you get redemption the matter sort of what other things are going on in the world. That's a. It's a big important part of this and there is hope in this. There is the idea that you know. We may not all get out of it. You know alive but will get out of it as humankind intact in some way. You know that that the fight this this this struggle that we're doing a on earth is worth it you know and i think that that's always important to have in the in the back of your mind you know as opposed to On the beach where it's just like well we blew it and that's it and it was tale

And i do think house mark was in this weird situation where they basically a couple years back after i think were like. Hey the games we make. No one buys them. So we're gonna stop doing this and then we're going to make a triple a. like free to play shooter online. And then they stopped making that game and have now made returnable which seems both like it seems like almost a melting of some of the work they were doing without like third person action shooter thing and then with their classic like shooter bullet hell sorta styles so i'm excited. I think it could be a really cool like evolution for them as But yeah i. I wanted to bring this up mainly as a. That's the i think. The first full release date we have for one of the big playstation five exclusives that have been part of the psi reveal event and obviously lucy. I know we've talked about this after those shows but especially with mic on. Hear your thoughts about how twenty twenty one looking because at least by like my determination. Obviously things get delayed. It's a very strange time for development right now with all the work from home situations like twenty twenty one looks just like a fantastic year for games but also for playstation
The Prince's Magic Mirror
"Princes magic mirror once upon a time in a far away kingdom a prince named told us was looking for a bride and it wasn't going. Well try as he might. The prince couldn't find someone who liked him for him instead. It was an endless parade of young noblewoman. Who wanted to be queen one day and just viewed him as a path to the throne like he was a set of finally carpeted stairs instead of a whole person with a whole personality. A lot of the suitors assumed. Tomas would be shallow because many princes were shallow. It was a side effect to being raised in a castle. And being given everything you wanted whenever you wanted it when you didn't have to work first things you ended up not really appreciating them. Luckily for him. tomas wasn't like that. Though his parents the wise old king and queen had done everything in their power to make sure their son was a good kind well rounded person. From the time he was little he would spend time with all the workers of the castle. He mended clothes with the taylor's and beat them clean with the washers. He pulled onions with the gardeners and then turned them into soup with the chefs. He learned to swing a sword with the nights and how to tell a joke from the jesters his favourite though were the horses. He was forever at the stables learning to ride when he was young and then taking his favorite stallion out for races through the woods when he was older as a result the prince was young but wise. Tough but fair and strong but gentle. Everyone agreed he was going to make a wonderful king because he was already a wonderful young man and he was definitely absolutely no means the sort of whiny shallow prince. You hear about in stories still. The nobles and their daughters thought the worst they would come riding to the castle on horses of snow white and midnight black trailing matching velvet capes and wearing swords all gilded in studded with gemstones. They would present their beautiful daughters with royal heralds who proudly declared their names the daughters were beautiful and richly dressed and quiet. Because that's what they thought prince wanted. It wasn't what tomas wanted though. He wanted a bride. That was bright and funny and kind one that could so her own dresses and race through the moonlit woods on horseback with him so one by one. The noblewoman appeared before him and won. I won the prince turned them down. My don't need your riches or your beauty. Tomas declared one day. I'm looking for love. Not just a pretty face. He thought that would clear things up. But it only made it worse. The nobles and their daughters still came but now instead of approaching on their finest horses all draped with silks and treasurer. They would come with guitars and books of poems. The girls would sing romantic songs and offer their hands in marriage with flowery declarations that lasted for hours and ended up saying nothing at all. It was clear that none of them meant a word. They said they were still just trying to use him to be queen so one by one they appeared and one by one. The prince turned them down. I hate all of this. He said one day to his barber. A kindly man named miguel. The barber cut his hair and the queens and kept the king's beard neat but he was also one of the wisest man in the kingdom and people were always coming to him for advice. I can see why. Miguel replied these brides to be are no good and seek your father's throne you are looking for love and they only see a kingdom. Well what can i do. Tomas said i wanna find someone but now they're all pretending to love me and it's even worse than when they thought i wanted someone beautiful and quiet. I want someone interesting. Someone funny someone who could really love me. He side tilting his head for miguel to snip around his neck. How do i find real love. It's like trying to find a teardrop in a stormy sea the barber thought while he snipped and styled the prince's hair of course tomas had spent some time working for him and knew how to do it himself but they both prefer to let miguel do it so they could chat. I have an idea the barber said though. It's a little strange. Oh said tomas with a smile. Please tell me. Miguel told him his idea and while it was more than a little strange the prince liked it very much the very next day another noble woman was paraded before him she marched through a grant hall crowded with workers in the castle and people from the nearby town all eager to get a glimpse of who may be the new queen. My fair daring most courageous prince. She said already laying it on thick. I have long loved you from afar. I've seen you riding your warhorse like a gallant night. I've seen you giving food the poor like the very soul of generosity. Truly i know that nothing would make me happier than to be your queen and to love you. Of course she added quickly inside. Tomas rolled his eyes. She'd never seen him before and even if she had she certainly didn't know him well enough to love him instead of justice missing her as he wants would have though. He smiled and clapped his hands very well. Tomas said if you wish to marry me. I have but one request for you. Anything my prince. She said barber he called. Miguel came out holding a bundle wrapped in silks and handed it to the prince as gently as though it were a baby. Tomas unwrapped the silk slowly and pulled out an old hand mirror. This is a magic mirror and it doesn't show the reflection of your face but the reflection of your heart as tomas said this the gathered people gasped and craned their necks to see. If you truly love me then we will only see your beautiful reflection but if you're lying your reflection will be as ugly as your lies and then your face will change to match. Tomas looked at the waiting noblewoman. And smiled but you truly love me as you've said so surely you have no fear of looking in my mirror. The girl had turned white as a sheet. Her hands trembling. I a i forgot i'm I'm actually engaged. Yes that's it. I already have a husband or fiance or whatever. How could i be so forgetful. I'd better get home. He's probably wondering where i am. By and with that the noblewoman turned and fled from the hall.
Taking On Gun Laws in Hawaii
"Two. We're going back to the idea of an urpo law or protection law. He only purchase the gun for the purpose. He said quite explicitly of committing this crime. He bought it six. I believe only six weeks before he went to new york the first time so again you have him telling his wife about this where she could now. In very specific places under specific rulings could go in front of a judge. And say this is. The situation could call on foresee. This is the situation. He just purchased a gun. This is what he's saying but unfortunately at the time and in many states still there's very little option that she had there. And why would you not want to prevent that kind of violence ever. Why would you not want to have a legislative legal path for somebody to say. This person is told me they are. They're intending to commit murder with this gun. Call that's a. That's a great segue for carl who wanna get involved in this conversation. It's talked about half cited to bring the law to fruition in. And how it's working out. I think it's What i've learned about guns over the years it's the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line. And there's a lot of beard non-linear ironies about what what is actually useful. what's not and just starting with what we think it was. Kelly talked about that. We've already talked about in. This conversation is having a gun in many cases actually more dangerous than not having a gun. Now it's not always true. And that's what makes setting policy for for firearms or a difficult because there's definitely an urban rural split where there are things that you were. You need a gun in the country that you really don't in the city and in the city they're not really used for much of anything except for senseless murders with the exception of You know sony breaks into your apartment in the middle of the night. I would certainly feel like your new justified in shooting them but so there there's a lot of there's a lot of non air guns aren't always bad but i agree that there should be. There is if you've already pointed out in many states is Red flag flag laws. That at least give a person a fighting chance to There's still a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean if his white. If i don't i don't even know his name the campaign not to give a elicits. People who've killed people with guns is work. Because i don't even know the guy's name you'd know i rosa but anyway if his if that law if the law that we have now had been in effect then they're still. It was still a little bit of a long shot that anything would have happened but at least if you have it. There's a chance there's a chance that someone says wow that's that's really kinda bonkers we better. We better contact better. Find an attorney. Who can file petition and see guns takeaway temporarily until this mood passes or until he's gotten help so it's not there's no panacea there but one of the reasons i supported was i thought actually passed when we pass the bill in hawaii. I didn't realize that it was much more effective against suicide than it is for other of for other killings even for non suicides it gives people who want to intervene who who loves somebody enough to intervene. Don't want them to go kill somebody. It gives them a chance. And i think that's why it's important. Can i ask a question that car that kelly asked or brought up earlier mind. How did you balance freedom right because this is the endless debate that we all encounter my freedoms and my freedoms are absolute and calculated in the context obviously of new york city and personal freedom. But i'm curious how you legislatively balanced individual freedoms or rights with public safety here is it was debated and what we finally settled on. Was the first motion that you make as many of your lawyers and experts say motion which means the other party doesn't have to be there. You just go straight to the judge. So we'd put up the final version of the bill puts in a provision that says you can file an exporting worship motion which means you don't have to talk to the person that's about but that only lasts for fourteen days and within fourteen days you go in you have to serve the they have to serve the parties you know as a gun who's were concerned about and then the judge will get testimony from both sides and make a decision from there so the the the short answer is due process. No constitutional right is absolute. But if you're going to take away. Generally you have to have due process and that's how we worked in the due process in this situation.

Lucia Lucas: Cracking Operas Trans Glass Ceiling
"Begin with. I want to go back to when you were first coming out. Was there any president or other openly trans opera singers that you could look at to see how being out might potentially affect your career. No actually this is sort of been a rule book that i've written myself over the last six years. Because there wasn't there was some professional singers who previously have careers. Who then transitioned so. There was a little bit of an idea what might happen with my voice which is not much and there was a little bit of an idea. About how the business might treat somebody. Who is trans like examples of it but nobody who was on the stage performing. It was just sort of a. How does this all work. So i had to decide how i was going to handle each individual thing and hopefully it was in a good way. Oh in so in essence to use your word. You're like writing the rule book for every transfer. Sinha fall you. I mean it's my real book for me. But i do hope that if i'm doing my best that at least administration in different opera houses can see that. It's possible that it's possible that this private thing this this very thing very specific to somebody can exist only in their personal life and it doesn't need to exist on stage. The opera doesn't need to be reworked. Nothing needs to happen. You can glue a beard on. And i'll go out there and i'll sang an it's fine and i don't care and i just want to keep doing my job you know if i'm missing. Baritone i just wanna go sing baritone really well and so now you have been. Al came out officially in two thousand fourteen. How welcoming have you found the opera world. Well the public in opera houses. They're typically a little bit more conservative than the people who are performing. But i will have to say that they're way more understanding and willing to at least inquire instead of shutting down somebody who is not someone who they're used to seeing on stage. We're seeing more and more start to break down. I think that that comes with so many tv studios. That are existing. Now there's more tv studios than have ever existed. You know we have. We have netflix amazon. We have who. We have apple with their own series. You don't have to make you know forty million or opening weekend. You're not playing to that many people in a theater. You can play to niche audiences like everybody doesn't have to like it and it setup that we ended and it's beautiful that way we can tell specialty stores to specialty people. You know one. Massive difference between hollywood and opera in correct me if i'm wrong but you have almost only played male roles and that is how your career is likely to continue. Is that right. Yes the majority of characters that i play in my mainstream main stage career are men specifically angry men between the age of thirty five and fifty. That's that's my talk. So the focus. What type of voice you have. And so because of the characteristics of your voice of the timbre and like the notes you are in that category almost only for opera. Yeah i mean unless a new composer wants to right something else which is actually the case with tobias picker. She's writing the danish girl for me. You know that's kinda something special and that's because the composer said hey. I would like to do this for you

And all while he's caring for a young child, understand for the movie, Clooney grew a beard, drop some weight and put on his director's hat. Take a deep breath You haven't been taking on a lot of acting rules. What was it about this project that was so compelling that you decided to direct and act in it. I saw the part. I thought, Well, there's a really great part. And then I had an idea of how to tell the story. And so I called them Netflix and said, You know, I think I think I have a take on it.

"beard" Discussed on Big Data Beard
"To the big data. Hi everybody this is corey men with another episode of the big data beard on joined by my co host today Kyle Prince and today we wanted to to have a conversation about something sort of interesting, which is technology adoption and the federal government, and candidly as many of us look at technology adoption and the government it's it's a bit paradoxical in that some of the greatest technology innovations. Of all time have come from federal agencies. Yet. So many seem inefficient and slow to adopt modern technology as based on our experiences. But when organizations in the Federal Government adopt technology and drive technology forward, they stand to have one of the most massive macro influences on society and human progresses we can imagine and that's really why we wanted to get an update from our friends at government acquisitions better known as. On. What's going on with the state of a and big data and the US federal government? So for that, I wanted to introduce our guests today we have J. J.. One to start off and give us a quick introduction. Yeah. Hi, So thanks really glad to be here So again, my name's Jay Lamki I'm the president of government acquisitions we like to call ourselves. Gee, I and we are a a federal only solution provider. We've been in business for thirty two years and in those thirty two years. We have done nothing but focus on solving. Our customers largest challenges. So exclusive to the federal government. Very Prim how about you Charlotte Good morning everyone my name is Brim Giovanni I'm the Chief Technology Officer that Gi and in my at all I get to work with the customers understanding technology problems, mission problems, and be able to bring. Real world solutions using some of the best strategic partners we work with and I truly enjoy bringing technology to the solutions and solutions to the market. And is a pretty interesting topic on video excited and the tension about it. Absolute. Well, let's start off with at a high level. I'm curious from your perspective clearly. So you know you've had a lot of experience with with government agencies. What would you say is the general macro state of Avai I'd option in the US federal federal government and their agencies. So I would broad brush strokes I would characterize is there is a real high commitment. From the top down there from the president on down there is a high commitment. To ensuring and reinforcing the importance of how critical it is for the US federal government to lead in A. represents probably our next technical revolution. and as you know through history when there's a large technical revolution that tends to. Have the ability to really upset the balance of power in the world. and. So the federal government has a high commitment to what I call using a I for good China and other not. So friendly nations are spending an awful lot of time and energy trying to ensure an and money trying to ensure that they lead the way in. The federal government is is aggressively trying to make sure that we maintain our lead in this really critical technological shift. Absolutely. Perm for your perspective as a CTO I'm sure you're working with a lot of the innovators. In the federal government what's your? What's your take on the state of AI? Day? Yeah absolutely I mean I would say I have a favorite saying that data is the new oil you know with the federal government they are collecting data at an unprecedented rate and when off the things that drives is good. Quality data saw with so much data. Out there and lot of mission. Outcomes that can be positively influenced I think is absolutely already taken off, but I see that with the power of new technology. Innovations coming from companies like Dell, Invidia and many other of strategic partners we work with the E I is now being taken very seriously and very excited to work with US federal government and helping them with How we can influence the missions. Absolutely. Yeah. We'll trying to have mission outcomes as is clearly key. But it's it's a Lotta, talkin solid rhetoric, which I know happens in politics from time to time but becomes real when when legislation actually gets behind and gets focused on driving adoption I'm curious you know maybe Jay from your perspective, what are some of the the legislative landscape that's happening as you know as a as a directive mission like what she outlined to be using this kind of technology for good you to lead the way as a global force for good house legislation being enacted and what what interesting things are happening in that area to actually make this a real supportable statement ee great question. So I think the first key thing is in twenty nineteen. The White House issued the president's executive order on maintaining American leadership in A. And that really set the framework in underscored the urgency of driving. A. Adoption in the federal government. So It calls for a number of things, but I'll try to highlight a few of them. So one calls for what they call. It promotes the sustained investment in a I R in. D.? to it reduces the barriers to the use of AI technologies. It trains calls for the training of the next generation of American AI researchers and users, and it also calls for developing for each agency. To develop an implement an action plan around Ai. And it actually had a deadline by which they needed to submit their action plan and so that's really key. It also calls for the RND side of each agency to consider a as a street as a strategic priority and to allocate funding a corn accordingly, and so also calls for heavy collaboration with nongovernment entities like academia nonprofits, corporations, and so what we've seen as a result of that in their self talk in the second, about some of the agencies are department set have been stood up to enable that but we're seeing government reach out and collaborate with industry and with researchers research. Universities like never before and I think that's great. So they also established the chief data officer role. So every agency is now in the process of of appointing a chief data officer many already have those roles in place. So then there was a couple of key things on the DOD side. So by the way when we look across adoption right now, think prim and I would both agree that dod in the intelligence community are way ahead of most of the civilian agencies in terms of actual. Adoption of AI. So dod established two key entities right. One is called the Jake, which is the joint artificial intelligence center, and the other is the defense innovation unit or what we call the dia you used to be called the DAX. So the they have totally different roles but are very complementary. So the Jake's role is to really work on transforming the DOD by accelerating the delivery and adoption, of Ai, to achieve mission impact at scale. So their goal is to solve to use a to solve large complex problems that span multiple services and then ensure the services and components have real time access.

"Experience, and so I'm really interested to see the the can how that comes together for a purely online. Tech Conference with a company that generally I think does a good job on their conference. We obviously love it and spend a Lotta time there every year I'm really excited to see how they how they make that experience. Accessible so many more people and how they how they bring the The that feel right the community feel and things like the pavilion and some of that like I'm excited to see some of that where they how they execute that in the virtual context. But so many more people will be able to experience the full. Confidence that that to me is is going to be really excited again. I'm not I don't love this virtual world. You know thing that we're having to go through because I like traveling and I like being in front of my friends and talking to people and stuff. But I think it'll be I. think you'll be formative for the future on what conferences can be. And Kyle, what about you? that. coit according to signal and they're. Still my answer man. You know This this new world isn't the most fun. You know it's it's a responsible world, but it's not the most fun one. Part of the fun cough is getting to see everybody and interact and share stories of of how you've made spunk awesome and how spunk has helped. Make you. Awesome. So. We are GONNA miss out on a bit of that. But what am excited about is is if anybody can handle an online conference super well I, think at spunk. So I'm excited to see how they execute that and how they bring that Quirky spunky nece to this online conference world. And how we have a new round of fun within virtual conference? World so and hate to keep it general. But that's kind of what I'm excited to see is what they're capable of given the new set of challenges that we live in. Yeah you know. What I'm personally excited about this year is that I actually get to go to sessions like all these sessions are going to be online and you can go to sessions. That might be being played at the same time because you can have them over and over again. So I'm looking forward to learning this year really getting to see some of the cool sessions. Corine Kyle you guys are GonNa be giving a session about the virtual race calm and really going into the details of this crazy experience that we're doing for the second year in a row. So I'm really excited to see that and obviously participate for that giving a session as well. Called I'm giving her she's got Admin, which is a star check theme based. Around of Infrastructure best practice for a growing sprung so. For those things but really I just want to learn and I like the last couple of years the whirlwind that. Has Caused me not to be able to actually get into see some really smart people present. So that's what I'm most excited about. Are you gonNA wear a star Trek uniform all you present. It depends if Beer's GonNa buy for me I should. Maybe just. Yeah. Well, I will say everybody who's listening I. If you're if you're going to be part of the virtual confidently checkout westies session definitely checkout breath session and Colin, and I are going to be doing a session in the spunk for you track, which is really kind of attract. That's going to have a bunch of fun. Kind of interesting ways it's monks being used for fun, but it's a ours is char session thirteen, thirty seven or you can just look to the beard and you'll find it. So I definitely encourage everybody to check out those sessions and we'll be They'll be recorded ahead of time but will be available in the in the panel rooms stance questions in real time. I do also want to thank our partners because without them. None of this would have been possible, right. So obviously spunk our title sponsor, and then there's a host of other organizations that we have partnered with to make this possible and they all all doing great things with spunk helping their customers get the most out of their slump deployments and really turn. Data into anything and so we have red. River. Technology Dell Technologies Intel Arrow electroncs, hippo digital, and then also McLaren. So. This has been great. Look forward to seeing you on the track hopefully through my rear view mirror and please make sure all of you that are listening you tune into the virtual race to. Two Thousand Twenty Thanks for listening to the debuted podcast..

"Well, it helped me understand when you're next to turn out. There you. Know Kyle you had obviously show you what was your set up like? Yeah the. Other way around the track when you drive just. Disorderly. It is weird. Begin American going from driving on the left side of the vehicle to drive on the right side of the vehicle in Australia to then driving back on the left side of the vehicle. I I told my wife we were driving to the local grocery stores like, wow this is really weird hopping sides of the car so much. So that's weird. Yeah. So my initial start was one monitor and then I moved to a Vr headset that a friend had and I liked it. But I didn't get the granularity that I wanted. So I jumped back to three monitors and that's what I ended up with. So very similar corey however, I did twenty four inch monitors. Easier, on the desk I, do not have a full. Racing Simulation. So it's it's myself in a in an office chair so we'll see how I go there. and. Then I care desks civil see we'll see if I have any issues there or not. But yeah I'm I'm pretty happy with the setup so far you know it's amazing how you can go from work mode to fund mode with this setup. So pretty excited about that the I'm going through the evolution to I started with a laptop earning I racing with the steering wheel and pedals on my you know my work share that has wheel. So every time a break I would go back and then I was convinced by corey to lead to a collapsible race car seat that did collapse on me I used it. Which is always fun. Wasn't designed. Be collapsible. So you didn't have like a racing simulator in the middle of your house all the time. I have. Doing right now I have a in my living room I have my seventy inch TV in my den. Shout Samsung and my racing seat with the pedals wheels and computer in is I'm not gonna be able to use that for for a few months. But I love it. I'm having we're racing. It's good but I have over France over in there like what are you doing? This is a simulators for work. Fifty percent by, but anyway I I think it's interesting though because there's a lot of technologies that. VR And obviously cheap incorporated with this. I never got to used of your stuff Picabo in here a little bit more other than the Grain Larry of the kind of how how is that experience different from the three of the one monitors I think that's a really. Hurting your head for thirty or forty five minutes of racing like eighty sweaty. It's incredible. It's next level. I was using the older VR headset. So Y-, the granularity wasn't there. I was also reading on some forums where he can really kind of. Over clocking computers, you can do that with VR headsets where you can get better granularity. However, I was Kelly. Just a bit lazy on that end of it. But it's it's pretty wild. A couple of complaints I have would just be the weight of it against your cheek bones. Can Get to be a bit heavy after you know an hour of practice or so but man, the immersive -ness of it. It's the second to none. It's it's Super Bowl I think it's definitely the future of of gaming especially when you're gaming or racing in this simulation style whether that's racing or flying or whatever you're doing that you you never feel a Merson do with Vr, headset so I think it's definitely the future. You know maybe maybe the newer headsets if you're GONNA go for it would be the way to go him. Someone get back into a little bit of some of the things that we're doing with an output from a dashboard perspective in West earlier and I think you corey both talked about the slow bit There's this real time aspect in trying to be corrected but also understanding okay. Well, you're doing so many turns race how do you know which turn like how do you connect spunk data with some of the visual stuff? So I think we're doing some really cool things that we're thinking about doing some cool things with youtube. He talk a little bit about what your plans are for that. Yes. So we've managed to put script together, which will link a dashboard with. with where you are on a on a youtube video. So as you're viewing video through the race than. That with the. Because spunk is in an essence time series data link with the the time from from within your data to visualize real time illustration of how the racism fold in. But then not just from that perspective at once you've finished the race in you want her analyze your performance after the fact, then to be able to go into a dashboard and visualize, say your performance versus. The best lap for the race how do you how? How far off the pace where you and you look at that by say speed or your throat Limpopo acceleration where you were with years and RPM which is produced some really interesting statistic by itself just just having to look at that data and how incidents affect people's performances well. So how your Howard a lot where you had incidents how that doesn't competitive analysis well. Yeah, I think that's really cool. I think that does give you the full picture to help reinforce maybe some things you can do in future races or just future driving and as a Boston driver I need all the reinforcement I get 'cause. I am not good I think the term Masol. No there's some other things that we're doing two and one of the themes that we picked up from last share is heart rate and heart monitoring corey.

"So obviously, the four of us are still and remain very passionate about spunk and cough and twenty twenty definitely have has a different flavor than years past. So we did want to do something different, but we were challenged last year the to to continue to. Innovate in this world of events leading up to DOT com. So Corey, why don't you tell the audience about the the crazy idea that we had this year? To make it to continue the tradition. Yeah absolutely. So the the trip was a great success that we did last year, we had over a million half impressions on social and the conversations that we had with. The community with smoke executives were awesome and I think everybody left with a lot of excitement and enjoyment from what we did. And so we were thinking through you know, what would we do for twenty twenty and at the beginning of the year we had all kinds of crazy cool ideas of things that we could do to incorporate different ways of traveling and that kind of stuff, and then the pandemic APP Twenty Twenty took a turn for. The worse thing call it whatever you want, but it took it very serious turn, and so we started thinking what could we do virtually that would give us an experience that would accomplish some of the similar goals which would get which was give us a chance to try. Something that really hadn't been spunk before but that thematically it was a line to some of the things that we're seeing you know spunk used for in the real world and so. We landed pretty quickly on something motor sports related because spunk real tight partnership with McLaren this year and the F one teams. and. We thought man what what could we do racing? Wise. We had some really cool ideas of things we could could've done in person motorsports related, which will hold on to the for maybe twenty twenty one when the world returns to some normalcy hopefully. But for this year we thought OK virtual virtual racing. There's been a lot of things done with spunk on you know video games I mean we even used some of the fours add-ons last year to get data out of the xbox using the protocol. There's a spokesman like project cars at Dot Com. But those are all video games and we wanted to do something that was more racing specific. And more realistic, and so we we decided that we would do a virtual racing series to dot com and that we would do it using the Irish seen platform, which is racing simpler form..

"It's been a little bit off. Yeah. Few months off just to. We're working on some really cool things actually like I think there's some really cool stuff coming. In the next couple months that we're excited to share with you but we've been focusing on that but it's time to kick off season seven of the big of your podcast and I really couldn't think of a better guest than our good Buddy Deane Jackson. Dean's been a big beard contributor for years. Now he's a guru and he works spunk and what we're going to join a safe or is to talk about his other passion, which is smart homes and the whole Internet of things in the household. So Dean welcome to the big data beer podcast. All some thanks for having me Really pleased to be here and for having this chat. Yea I am as what she's looking forward to this all week. Obviously, we all have some. Some passions around. So our homes and I've learned a lot from you personally. So it's fun to be able to pick your brain, but also to record a podcast while doing that. Why don't we start off? Just do me a favor can you introduce yourself to the audience? Yeah No So D- Jackson in the I am. A SELF-PROCLAIMED CANAL? So Katie born but living at down under. So I've been here on ten years now in Australia. Split my time between Sydney and now in Sunny Brisbane So. That spunk three years very passionate about that and the other big passionate he said is. Anything. Technical toys to play with at home because it full of too many electric things you're gonNA hear about. So ties nicely into to to my data. That's a little bit about myself. Now. Have you trademark debt term yet? For a t shirt or can we can we make a t-shirt about tackling is? Easy. Yeah. Beard. I think we should The other term I use is climate refugee so So like you know the Canadian winters just can't do it anymore. So winters winters day here in Brazil twenty, two to twenty, four, Celsius. So it's pretty nice. You've really hit the extreme service Canadian winters now Queensland Summers. Man. There's no midpoint for years. I have a great story on Quinson Summers and technology. Honest here it. I. Okay. We'll get right into it then. Yes Oh. My you know I moved up here in a couple years ago, moved in A. Nice House up here in this beautiful little server rooms in my garage like I guess it was meant for storage room but of course became a sovereign has power panel in it and. You know the cable TV comes in for the broadband got all the necessary bits for A. Little Mini Data Center. So it's two square meters. Gets here in Brazil advocates around thirty, five Celsius in summer with seventy to ninety percent humidity. So it's pretty pretty full on tropical. You can imagine a room full of electronic technology city in my garage, the temperature. Well, that's summer had an overheat event. So. I had the door open fans going but it's still overheated and I lost lost my fire all. I lost my Sinology Nasr. T so Kudos this analogy a them a bit. It overheated they replace the Nas- move drives over in it all back online. There so. Yeah. That was like a ten terabytes of data. So So yeah, So basically I've got a reverse cycle air union that's a room this Friday. It's a day con unit, and of course, it's got which will lead in probably next topic's got WIFI control with an API on it. So it will Lincoln to. Obviously it's got its own thermostat on.

"You are now listening to the big data beard this Corey Menton and we are back with another season of the big. Dig Up Your podcast and we're GONNA kick it off in style this time with a little conversation around streaming storage reimagined and have that conversation today. I'm joined by two folks from Dell Technologies. Amy Nannies is the product. Marketing Manager Adult Technologies and Flavio. Jakarta is the senior distinguished engineer. Adele Technologies Aiming Flavio. Welcome to the show. Amy How are you surviving in this crazy corona virus work from home migration and doing surprisingly well? I think I was made for this kind of living. What's funny I had a conversation yesterday and I somebody said its worst nightmare for an extrovert. Because we don't get to get out and socialize but it's also works nightmare for an introvert because you really don't get a lot of downtime because there's so many people in the house potentially for those of those kids and wives and families and all this stuff so it's everybody's struggling a little bit flabbier. How are you doing in this time? I'm pretty good pretty good. It has been on. It has been nice intelligent at the same time. Nice from the perspective that We spend a lot of time with family together like I. I believe we have never done before. So that's nice but telling him. Part is not being which you step outside me here stain. We have full lockdown. Now can we go tight for groceries and all that stuff from that perspective is challenging but You know we. We were coping very well. So we'll good well. I hope everybody else's stand out there. Hope our audience sustained safe and hopefully this conversation with episode. We'll give you something to enjoy in the lockdown. That's happening so many places around the world. Now business hasn't stopped. People are still out there. Working trying to derive value from data and one of the conversations kind of macro themes that has been really popular over the last two years. If you will is this concept of analytics on streams so I want to set the table Amy would you favor and help us understand? What exactly do people mean when they talk about streams sure yes so extreme as just a continuous data feed? That's in constant motion. So there's no beginning there's no end. Typically we have a time stamp on our data feed so this is different because it's always flowing Today a lot of our data naturally comes in this form you know everyone has a organizations are beginning to utilize drones and security cameras. So we're seeing this information produced all the time interesting now. This constant stream of data a guessing is kind of important you just mentioned a few Kenna interest in areas security and surveillance and those kind of things why streaming getting so much press. These days is becoming really critical for modern analytics. Yeah so you know. It's important for us to be able to consume it store it and analyze it in real time as it's coming in because we get the most value from this data as it's coming in A good example is when we're shopping online so we get to the cart and we have suggested purchases if the computer behind that was to look at that data. Historically we'd be getting it a week from now and that wouldn't be as valuable Or something like traffic lights. We can look at how busy they are and change the timing in between them if we can get that information as it's coming in so the ability to analyze information as it's coming in is hugely valuable in almost every industry. Yeah so get into that real time. Capability is so challenging. I imagine you know there's a lot organizations and a lot of technology is being built and developed to handle executive that problem so far beyond cures from your perspective. What are the challenges that this stream type data bring to maybe those traditional analytics platforms that organizations have spent the last five ten years deploying right so following up on a on what amy said if you're continuously generating data in you can imagine applications where you have a large number of these data sources? So she she used an online shopping example right. But you can also think of food servers Sensors edge applications in general. You can have many of those and all of those producing this flows of data continuously so this year diggity unnecessary to ingest this data and make available downstream. So if you're talking about applications that we want you tell that street rates went to processing data as soon as possible so ingesting that making available news is challenged by itself. Now if you think about the characteristics of of the Stream flows they need their unbounded right so as you mentioned the arm-banded so they have They have a beginning. They begin at some point by there is no no no. There's there isn't necessarily an end end. Not even that alone. You can have fluctuations in the in the workload so that the flow. You're getting my change in my few censors at some point or more sensors oranmore service fiercer results although this cannot can fluctuate and and the the your plan which accommodate those changes and in addition to that you don't want you don't want to have duplicates miss events or or or have problems with the with the streaming away that doesn't reflect what application expects a consistencies and other is another important property. All that's with the with the application wanting to deliver results with low latency so he's taking that data processing yet and delivering results as possible. And finally the the the aspect of reacting facet changes. So if you are in this in the situation that you are taking the state alive processing live and delivering results as fast as possible. System must also be able to accommodate changes to too many thanks to the work as I mentioned on. That could be faults in the system needs to watch to react to those. Maybe replicate In my need to increase the the D'Amato resources dedicated to a critical application. So all those make a beauty a platform like this very challenging. Absolutely we did talk about kind of at the onset that there. Is this idea that we need to think about storage so help me understand you know when we think about platforms that are moving towards dealing with analyzing those unbounded? Highly diverse time series data types. Right in real time. Why is storage a critical component to the overall architecture that an organization will build to get to that real time streaming analytics because maintaining Jessen again? You have the data being Katina's agenda meted out of the application sources and you WANNA capture and make it available to downstream applications. That could be most for those applications. They could be reacted data different times at a at a different pace. And so you need to keep that data around until those applications have have processed the data. Now Minneapolis do not simply want to take the data detailed the the stream and be done with the data their applications like that that look more like a message queue pops up kind of a kind of obligations but there are many publications that want to injustice data in keeping around for as long as they needed may apply patients for example. My want to reprocess the data. We might want to reprocess it because they have changed their Co. They want to generate results in a different way. May maybe they found a bug and they want to run. Eh or maybe just re materialized a particular view. Oughta of a stream of a of changes events I messages so those would be reasons for keeping extreme data rounds and should treat.

"Lot from our guests about big data but now it's time to get a a bit personal in a segment. We like to call rapid fire. Kyle I'm going to start with you. What is the last great book? You've read that you'd recommend to our listeners kyle. I have not had much time to read lately. I've been digging through a bunch of rest. API guides sued be more of A. There's a new standard swagger standard. I've been reading through the documentation. Seems pretty pretty cool little piece of tech so yeah that's been my late night reading lately. Smarter Cow Excuse me what about you. What's the book you've been reading? The book. Great Book that I read was called leading change around. How do you manage propped organizational change in process change in how do going to influence the adoption of that? It was pretty interesting banks. What about you? What's a great book you've read recently that you'd recommend well I always I mean right now? I'm just reading marketing. Books like the ones by a Seth Godin. I think those are really great but I always go back to the Phoenix project whenever I need like a nice little reminder of tech without to much tech so it can. I can't ignore that one nice I go. I went to the human route at this time. I'm always a fan of Malcolm. Bradwell and his latest book talking to strangers. is quite an interesting Expose on the way that We interact with the people we don't know and the problems that can happen with making assumptions. And if you're an audible listener It is the first book that's been done sort of an podcast format so it's a totally different. Feel as the book is read it actually includes like alive. You know newsreels like anytime. They referenced an interview they try to get the live interview version of it so pretty we also are Brett. If you had a song to play when you walk on stage at conference to present what would it be dodged this question. For how many podcasts. I finally to answer it. I still don't know now Let's go with the modern drake. I think that's a good one strong choice banks. What about you your walk on Song? What does that mean it has to be beyond say Song of course right and well the only thing that really matters for women he rule the world? which is you know who girls Kyle? How about you? What's your what's your walk on Song? Next time you talk at a conference SCO with a passion pit take a lot for the literal translation and I just have been listening to that a lot lately. Strong well mine is going to be another drake song. It's big rings and that is because it talks about my team and these five people on the call our podcast army team banks what piece of technology it is currently making your life worse. I wanted to say my laptop but then when I sit there and think about trying to like walk away from the laptop and do stuff but still carrying my iphone phone with me and still getting text messages for work and calls from work and emails from worker. Pretty painful so right. Now it's just my work email and when when Mark Ben half the founder of salesforce talking with Tim Cook on stage at their big conference. He said that he no longer owns a laptop. He does his Margaret off. Does the entire job or anything else. Worse from an from an iphone which really. Yeah so. Maybe it's possible that what about you. What piece of technology is making your life worse? My phone batteries horrible learning right now and it just doesn't have a whole lot of space left so look for what to expect I classic guy. What about you back in your life worse? Yeah Yeah my my local router to old school net gear and just constantly will drop the connectivity to my my apple. TV even though it's across the room so trying to deal with that and we don't have cable so we just stream everything so when that goes out it's like our in cable goes out so it's a pain. Yes that's no good I'm GONNA say mine is Apple. TV or not Apple TV AT and T. TV streaming service is streaming services in general. Why are they going up in price so much? I'm done I'm over it. I'm going to go all cart. They're not going to own me. What is your biggest personal money? Pit Right now kyle. It's about to be networking gear because well if it's broken. You might as well just spend a lot money and get it fixed excel Taking a look at that and getting that done mice Brett. What about you bought way too many raspberry pies to Alaska and not the food unfortunately unfortunately nice banks? What about you? What are you spending all your disposable income on my car? She just a I think she's not used to the sitting for a while. Now they live in the city she never garage out. I know well well well. It isn't ours five so it seems to be my most expensive Audi audie equipment. Camman might be fun especially because I really get to drive that fast here Jersey because as you you stated the roads suck so we talked about this. Why do you have to have somebody fill up your gas for you in Jersey? Well so they changed the law there. You can do a couple of stations can now you can pump it yourself but I I did not live here. When Jersey made that rule I will omit somebody that's moved recently from Massachusetts? It's nice to be in the car when it's snowing or raining or really really cold and being able to sit in my heated seat in listen to the radio and not having to get out and pump it so it has its advantages. And they're having times if they're taking too long definitely get out and we'll just pump up myself so there you go binging on any in any shows renou yeah. I'm trying to finish handmaid's tale kind of obsessed with it. It's it's on Hulu and I just I love it. What about you? What show are you watching? Decided to Rewatch the office. For the fiftieth time before it gets off net flicks so Netflix they are. We're going to hook you up with a with a Nasima isn't servicing. Pull that bad down as she just bought the The Disney streaming service and. It's pretty awesome. Oh it's great. Yeah Oh these amazing reliving. My Childhood Manda Lawrence Pretty Good. I was pretty pleased with it. I don't like that they're releasing it once a week. Though I understand like the the thought process behind that I really do like the binging aspect of it. So that's that is my only that in you don't have recently played so if you go through or you get out of the APP and you have to go back. He has to go search for what you're watching again. So on the peace if he back based on the challenges they've had with keeping the streaming up. Maybe it's better that they don't have that much mandatory and for people to stay on for that many hours at a time kyle. What about you? And he shows that They play over in the upside down. Land that are gonNA flip your TV upside down to watch him remarks made. I've I've been watching a lot of the office so taking a page from Brett's book. Yeah we're we've we've been binging it. We're on season seven now. So yeah it's been good As well as the morning show our morning wars the morning till the apple. TV One really. Good Okay let you too. That's good I saw a bunch of So much news about it like where it was getting good reviews but but apparently apple apple haters. Were like you know torching it and so it was getting better views on certain sites and the people came out and they were like now. This is just people. Don't like Apple. Yeah it's a great showman kind of feels like the newsroom was that was Aaron Sorkin Stevie Show Kyle. I started watching on season as in seventy as well. I'm not sure we're past Christmas. Yeah Nice why. I started at the recommendation of Keith. Kyodo started i. Tried Watchmen Y that is really really strange are so it's the holidays. Is anybody going anywhere super interesting. What's your next interesting trip? Some going to San Francisco for a couple days in December and then I might be going down to the land down under next year so I'm looking forward to that but going to see everyone about you Goud guy what about you. You travel anywhere phone. I am Yeah in six days. We are heading to Germany so we're meeting my family. They're flying from the states and we're all meeting in Germany and cruising around there for two weeks is a bit of a family get together so we're pretty excited for that. Yeah it'll be a good time in and you thought you thought you'd had all the to meet you. You'RE GONNA have this year on the arbitrary Lord we're GonNa be eating a lot of Schnitzel sausages. It's GONNA be awesome. Yes Sir Thank you. What about you you doing any traveling? I was supposed to go to Cuba but then God next thank thank you. I was the American Embassy. Nixed it or just exit. It's been next by trump so Not allowing us now going to Mexico. You know the bummer. I the thing I'd love to see in Cuba's like the all the old cars that they have seen. That seems like so you can't go to prevent any more I mean you can get with like the original route that we could go back in the good old days by boat. Thank Canada are I think you can say like as an educational trip or something like that. This was like kraft kraft and go the opposite direction. That might be easier at this point. We get a little more. They see on the news like a like a D. A helicopter comes overboard is like what are you doing in those drugs. No I'm going to Cuba. That's awesome. Well speaking of Canada I'm actually taking the The family on our very further kids very first ski trips. I've a seven year old and a five year old. They're going skiing for the first time and we're going to Fly into Vancouver weirdly enough flights to Vancouver. Were half the price of flying into Salt Lake or Denver. Ver- have no idea why so we're going to go to whistler blackcomb for four days of skiing the first week of December the awesome. Yeah it's two days of Ski School for the kids. And then then we'll see if we can hold onto them. Well Ladies and gentlemen it has been a super fund to have you along for the ride of season five of the the big bird podcast. We hope that you have an incredible holiday season. And we encourage you to tune back in to the podcast in early. Twenty twenty as we kick off season six of the show..

"But one of the things I'm GONNA use to capture some hopefully cool video footage is that everybody will see got a pretty sweet little maverick drown I don't know if you guys have gotten into drowns but I gotta I gotta one of the Kabq Yeah I got one. It's pretty. It's I got the maverick mini. So it's like the travel and but dude it's got a two point seven K camera so not quite four K.. But let's be honest and I really need forecast gay TV I know exactly. So what do I need that for. So I got one of the Maverick mini and but it's it's dudes rat. It's got the three access gamble bull camera on it and it's small enough. I didn't realize this but the FAA right the which is in the US is the you know the the government agency managing the airspace. They've now implemented lamented laws. Where if you have a drone that weighs more than two hundred fifty grams which by the way is like the weight of a cell phone if you have a drone that was more than that you actually have to register it with the FAA and you have to have a tail number like printed or shown on your drown like if you don't you can go to Federal Felony and I'm not just talking about to fly the thing in in some sort of protected airspace? I'm talking about to take it out to the park and fly it if it weighs more than two hundred and fifty grams and is not registered. You can literally you're in violation of federal law. So this thing is two hundred forty nine grams. So it's like the highest in camera that falls under the under that SPEC so so you can do it without getting you know in federal prison which is kind of ideal yeah so the the. US is cracking down on routes because apparently a bunch of people that drones are a bunch of idiots and fly them there where they shouldn't didn't not that that's ever happened before. I actually I got on this verb it. Yeah so I so I bought the fly. More Combo interestingly. Interestingly enough I saw went onto jobs website started by it and I couldn't. They didn't have any and they said they were going to have to like well after Christmas so I went to best buy Amazon like nobody had him. You Know Madam the Apple Store. The apple store in in Birmingham had three of them in stocks. I went and got one there But candidly I got it yesterday. and got the batteries all charged up and it's been a crazy couple days. I haven't I haven't seen it yet so I will. I will send you. I'll be I'll be sure impose some Some video to twitter of my first line I did also by the Digi I protection plan for thirty dollars. That if you crash it you can get a low cost uh-huh replacement so that's a good thing. That is a good idea..

"Doing that trip and in total that happened. Clearly the the road trip is behind us. Calm off Another great cough is behind us But also we had a whole season of shows in all of two thousand nineteen. We talked to some really incredibly interesting folks folks from around the world and I want to spend a little time just sort of recapping the things that we learned in In two thousand nineteen and maybe some themes to watch as we look. What's ahead of us in two thousand twenty I I'll start with one just kind of off the cuff that that kind of seemed interesting for a podcast called big data beard. That's all about big data eight. I really had duke. Had Been at the center point of a lot of our conversations For the first year and a half of our of our show but it really. I felt like there has been significantly less talk about Duke. And it Kinda trailed off faster-than-expected did anybody since that as we went through twenty nine to I see a lot of open source projects that were built natively in starting to expand outside of that and while they did use. HDFS as the file system to get started in a the job scheduler That there's a bigger world outside of that so now they're starting to try to democratize their their requirements right so now jumping into do things like S. three and blob storage in keying off of all the major cloudplayer's and trying to be agnostic quote unquote but then also focusing on trying to keep themselves as an entire data platform is kind of the big trend that I've seen come out of that. Yeah I thought everything seems to be like seems to be moving towards one commercial platforms are becoming more and more popular right open source. Seems like where they start but it doesn't seem as sustainable but a lot of the services are those functions are starting to come become as you kyle alcohol. They're being run oftentimes in the cloud and call just as a function versus having to have you know an entire big scale out system to run it. It's really just a developer making API call. One of the things I noticed was This idea that you know we talk a lot about tech but there's a lot of human you know human computer interaction conversations taking place I thought those were interesting. That are going to watch in the future Brenner Better and I'm curious from your perspective. What are some of the trends that you took away from this? This last year's worth of podcast conversations. Yeah I think I To your first point quarry about your expectations going into season for in the beginning of the year I think everything our most of our conversations with some type of a related conversation whether it's based on a use case or some technologies that are driving Moore this advanced analytics and kind of analytics. That was I I kind of have since the that was going to be more of our conversations but not such a shift from what we did last year to this year on. The second thing is just how many organizations out there are taking advantage of technology around machine learning or deep learning and using it for good so Microsoft until I think we had to really exciting shows where they're actually pioneering a lot of really interesting these cases around Bettering the world or solving some nonprofit esque east cases. Yeah I think. That's you know you talked about use case right there at at the end. That's that's one of the things that I feel like really got to the center of every conversation we had was you know. There's a lot of being developed and there's a lot of interesting technologies. Oh Jeez that solves and some really unique challenges but one of the things that became abundantly clear was that you know really without a well defined you know business outcome come every project that organization and even the companies who developed the technology. They talk about their customers without that really well defined business outcome objective with executive by a and kind of cross company. Belief really is hard to be successful and what I took away from a lot of the practitioners that we talked to was that. There's a lot of stuff that's already been done. An and that or is this just haven't even adopted the things that are already available out there. Like people aren't spending near enough time combing get hub for projects that have already been figured out a one of the things that we as a team and this is a little bit of inside the trustee for listeners. We ran into was Publishing a weekly podcast While having day jobs in industry is really challenging we've jokingly referred to it as our like to share. It's it's been our existential crisis is what is what does the future of the big did a beard. PODCAST look like we. We don't know exactly we're we're thinking through it and I'm just curious Brett. Kyle Aaron any anything you want to add to that To the existential crisis journey. We're going through right now. Editing every week is just so time consuming. It takes a lot out of you. But I'm still excited energized by what we do in kind of all the feedback. We get so I want to keep it going. I think Focusing on the use case in some of the applications of this technology is something that I wanted to explore more next year. I've been of the the mindset set that Given that we all learned that you know use cases were We're supremely interesting I think that you know if the listeners are are interested what we're thinking about on season six is is really that it's less about technology for technology sake and actually trying to go out and find find interesting ways that people are applying machine learning. They're applying deep learning artificial intelligence using IOT less about how they built it and more about why and what is the outcome. And what is the impact too. Because you know one of the things that we're finding you know I think a lot of our conversations is that the technology and the capabilities are being democratized and so it's becoming easier so we think you know. Maybe there's this creative conversation that we want to have around you know use cases so we encourage you to tune into season six what we will say as it is not going to be a weekly podcast in two thousand twenty. That schedule is just not sustainable forest forest but we do want to continue finding great conversations that you will find interesting and you'll find inspiring And one that we've the one show that we've actually committed to already that we're the working on recorded in December is Is this company called apex pro and it's basically a it's digital driving coach. It's a a little IOT not device. That goes into your car where during During times when you want to go onto a road track or a racetrack and it uses Machine learning and Iot to actually give real real time driver feedback to to help drivers go faster around a racetrack. Now this strikes close to home for me as my a hobby in the the boys and girls in the show know how much I look like talking about cars. I probably should have car show to the big show but Going to the track actually December fifteenth and the team at Apex has partnered up with me to outfit the G.. Eight with an apex and so the first episode of the Year for two thousand twenty will be Hopefully feature some video maybe some in car audio from for my experience and then we're actually going to sit down with the Eh Professional racecar driver. WHO's the one of the founders of apex to have him coach me through the data so you guys will actually get to see how bad or maybe how good my driving is? I'm guessing how bad and maybe we'll do some follow up episodes throughout the year. But it's always going to be about use case that's it. We really would like you the listener to give us some input we want to know what use cases you you find interesting and that you want to explore and that you'd like to see us go down the path of exploring with you so we encourage you to reach out to us. You can always ping us on twitter Or you can pay us on Lincoln You can also reach out to us directly just by sending an email to Brett at big data beard dot com the housing to his email address but Bret Baier dot com breath. -solutely feel dose requests. Many you're welcome Brat so sin br your ideas and Rhett will work on helping US figure out which ones are the most interesting to pursue in two thousand twenty twenty now before two thousand twenty shows up. We've got the holiday season ahead of us. We want to say. Thank you for a wonderful twenty nineteen. We hope that you of wonderful times with family And that you have an incredible blast. Thankful hadn't holiday season before we skip to our favorite part. I'm curious Kyle Brett Aaron. Do you have any interesting things. You're going to be nerdy out on over the holidays Kyle. What about you? Yes so I live just a couple a couple miles south of our local customer Solution Center So we're actually actively working on building out some fun stuff that we showcased on the road in Austin So we're getting our spunk. Cluster stood up We're also getting eight DOT O.. stood up and then trying to get some of the new announcements implemented in our lab. I've I been playing with Iot a bit in running tenter flow at the edge. So how do we train the model in the core and then push that container out to the edge so we got quite a bit that we're geeking out on over here. I'm sure my wife will get really upset with me at some point to me. Put My laptop away but we'll see how long can make it for get yelled at breath what about you. What are you going to be tinkering with this holiday season? Yes so some of the things that we tried to do on the RV that we just didn't have the time for. I've been working on so like how said earlier the durability of a raspberry Pi so working on getting some of the internal data from you know CPU temp to Just utilization and playing with that and spunk Um I'm also playing with tensor flow a little bit and doing some things with object detection around my house. And I'm actually going to get a certification over the holidays. Signed up for a couple of classes and then I'll have to pass a test and hopefully I get the next level of certification for spunk. Nice banks here. Are you doing any any tinkering with anything fun. Hell no hiding project. Yeah Yeah it's GonNa be a crazy crazy twenty twenty which I can't believe it's going to be twenty twenty But it's going to be pretty nuts for me so I'm just going to do everything I can try to relax and breathe and just not be in front of my laptop for a little bit of time. I'm some good for you. Well I got a fun new toy One I'm getting apex pro which is going to go on the track with me on December fifteenth..

"Somewhere else today Jersey today sweet the Great State of Jersey. Isn't it though we've all we've all been home a little bit. We took a crazy wild trip. Rip As part of Season Five Brett and Kyle and I went on a road trip ECZEMA. I remember thing I can't forget it. Forget it was It was a wild trip. TWO WEEKS LEADING UP TO SP- lunks conference so we Kinda Ana we shaped everything in our conversations around Those organizations using spunk and those organizations partnering To make customer successful as plunk the incredible sponsors of the road trip were dealt technologies. VM Ware Red River Technologies and Aero Electronics and it was pretty epic. I'll say Brett. What were some of the most Interesting stats that you that you collected for US along the journey. Yes so just to start by saying I was actually gone for six weeks. I just got back to my house about eight days ago so I am very happy to be back but for the actual road trip itself. It was two weeks we did over about four thousand miles just the road trip plus all the additional miles that Corey night drove to get the RV to the starting point and then Corey driving afterwards so about six thousand total. We hit seventeen states on the road trip. Uh I think it was like fourteen different cities and two thousand different rebels but I think my favorite stat is actually let you guys. I guess this How many times did Corey? Honk the horn in a fourteen day. Period Kyle any thoughts. I'M GONNA go with an over under of around one hundred fifty. I'll take the over on that. He was going to say over definitely over now. Listen I wasn't even. I wasn't even in that thing. Yeah but in fairness though it let's be honest. The Horn was magical. It was one of those like air horns that kinda sounds like a yacht anytime you'd hit it. It was like you're playing a video. It was a magical horn and it had its intended effect and to be fair. You drove every single mile of this this journey. You kind of hit a pass on using the horn. So I'll give you that and great job getting us from point A. TO B. Two to the end so thanks very I did notice I've never seen corey so happy. In his life than him. Sitting in the front of the most of that trip he had to the biggest grin rain on his face. You know drive on the road listening to John Denver. I've never seen you so happy I I could moonlight as a as an eighteen wheeler driver. I think between being behind the wheel of such a massive land was kind of fun now along the trip we learned some things. One thing I learned is New Jersey has terrible roads no fence banks. It's true But I'm curious from your perspective. What did you learn along the way Brit? What was the the number one thing that you learned on that crazy road trip? I think it's the importance of a good network. In how how. Critical networking and knowledge knowledge of networks are That was definitely our biggest bottleneck both from a podcasting in a production standpoint but also just from making sure that all of our iot devices were sending the data data over the network to spunk. Think that's definitely a was one of the biggest things I took away from the trump. What about you? What's the number one thing that you learned and trying to get the IOT? RV Cross country while making great shows. I think one of the trickiest parts that we had was just around the availability of the devices as well. Oh with them being headless units and I spin on a quick timeframe. We didn't build in a lot of Redundancy and necessarily checking in on the the it of the IOT devices so are they performing while. What's our heat? At what did we have as far as thrashing of the cards so we were. We took it really. Reactionary reactionary approach to monitoring the health of those and I think if we were to ever subject ourselves to this again we could probably improve upon that the next time. If we ever do this again I think the biggest thing we need to bring because we will be doing this next. Time is a smaller monitor that we can use to trouble shoot just in case I think having to get that big monitors plugged in attached to every single edged advice whenever something breaks is just not sustainable. So you're saying twenty-seventh monitor might be overkill for troubleshooting raspberry Pi Gateways Forty foot. RV Six thousand miles. Why not go big trip? That's exactly exactly right now. I heard you you just you committed us to doing something like this again is that is that an I hearing that correctly. I've already signed all four of us up for it so he committed himself self. Nope you're here that you're banks. You're coming along. How do you feel about that? I shake my head. nope I have not going to be in that. RV that stink echina- imagine imagine the smell. That's all I think about is what it smelled like like roses. He was a lot of honest. Well actually we the only only thing Liquid that we went through more of than red bull was for breeze in all honesty so it was quite as fresh But I think Aaron you can join us on the next trip trip because it's not going to have an RV involved. It'll be something far more interesting and friendly to people travelling together over long distances. So I think it'll will be fun now so one of the things that we that we had happen. If any of you were paying attention to the to the To the road trip before we even really got that started. We had a massive tire blow out on the interstate in Tennessee is. WE'RE MAKING OUR WAY TO BOSTON. And just so you know we had another one after the road trip ended When my wife and I were driving the RV from Vegas over to San Francisco we went through Yosemite and we had a blowout In the park Here's the side story one. It is insanely expensive to have somebody drive from Fresno with the tire and then change it for you in in the park that stinks the positive. The silver lining there is because of our stranded R. V. We actually got to spend the night in Yosemite National National Park in the parking lot of the lodge in V which it's illegal to camp there but we get to camp in the RV overnight and Yosemite and go out for now mark walk under the stars. Wake up early in the morning before the sun came up and have incredible access to the park self silver lining there now during the time We actually went to the conference. We will this giant RV with all of our it sensors onto the floor. We had hundreds of people come through the RV every day But we also saw some pretty cool things. I'll tell you my my. The the coolest thing I saw at the entire conference was was definitely doug colonists out on stage like seeing our name in lights on the on on the screen of the keynote in front of eleven thousand people and over one hundred thousand people in livestream was easily the coolest thing we saw. I saw kyle curious from your perspective. What's The coolest thing that you saw this year? That was by far the one of the coolest moments for me but as far as takeaways from the conference I a swinging by the spunk. VR Demo Station was absolutely wild and we played with VR bid on the road and had some fun there but to be able to sit down and see VR happened in a real world. Use Case and being able to monitor your spunk dashboards dive into those further all through. VR headset was Zach. I think one of the takeaways for me. Yeah it's it's funny you say. VR because one of the greatest things I saw not at the conference was Brett plane with his new. VR headset set in the parking in the park in Texas swinging. Around the handles one of my favorite things to see so Decided on that. So that Star Wars game for the VR headset. It only. It's only like the first chapter by the second chapter in the third chapter so it's like like nine dollars for every time you WANNA play two or three levels. It's it's actually deploying frustrating. Yes pay to play you have a way sabre duel with Darth vader or so. It is still a win You know I actually think just the backyard. Barbecue of the Expo Hall was just a lot of use cases cases that you don't really think about for spunk. Like the cornhole boards or the smokers or I think my favorite which was the brewing of the beer and of course the rv all those cool things together create a nice little Just place people to hang out and see some technology. It was fun beck some curious from your perspective. I know you didn't get to join us. But maybe what was the best thing that happened for you while we were doing this crazy road trip besides not enough. It was so quiet it was just it was quiet it was it was nice. No I missed you guys and our conversations and everything but Being able to just really watch you you guys from like a foreign seeing like their travels and seeing all the great work that you're doing it was it. It pulled on my heartstrings and a little bit of foam but I think the the biggest piece of foam probably happened. When you got to watch Brennan Kyle unload the NERF guns on me? They should have never seen them that had they talked about me and the horn like them in the NERF guns unloading on an unarmed me easily. The greatest thing that happened to him that was a lot of pent up rage that came out over that thirty me seconds but a pure pure joy for everything else banks. I'm curious though. What was your favorite episode or or Breakfast with the beards episode episode? That from the trip I don't know I I like them. All I mean I just think it was just a great concept right. I don't I don't want to like it's like picking looking like one of you is my favorite. I can't do that so we know which one I would say all of them because I think it was a great concept I think it was just perfectly executed executed. I mean you guys just you just did a great job so I think breath just really want you to talk about how much he loved making me making them. Eat those Texas tornadoes and Armadillo. uh-huh Amarillo those rough. Those were disgusting. I don't terribly anyways fine..

So did you ever take a trip where you with A bunch of grown men in an RV You can actually tell you a couple of those stories too. Yeah we used to take golf trips all frequently Took a bunch of people to Actually we live in. California was a trip from San Francisco up to Reno for the weekend very cool. Yeah I had trouble getting the guys out of the RV once they will travel exactly right. Yeah it's good. If you're not the driver because you get to get up and walk down you can go back and get yourself soft drink and a snack drivers on suffering. And that's unfortunately the truth. Because I was like all right so you guys. I'm training to drive and they're like nope I'm like it's my duty. Get you from place. Nice to play so a lot of fun. It is responsibilities. Things are enormous like they're so tall they're so can unwieldy on the drive in your. You know your family car down the street it is. It is legit work work it is it is yeah in fact.

"We've learned a lot from our guests about big data but now it's time to get a bit personal in a segment. We like to call rapid fire. What is the latest book that you've read that you would recommend to our listeners. I've only been able to read things related to my talk over the last few months so it's going to be one from from my talk but basically I would say uncontrolled. I think Jim Manzi is is the author but again he's again. He's talking about experiments okay and I like. He's come up with some interesting. Terminology like causally dents is one of the terms that he came up. I think is impactful. That's that's a deep word man. Yeah I dig that sounds so you had a chance to talk at the conference but if you had a chance to pick a song song that was playing as you walked onstage. What would that song be. There is a song off of a stone roses album and I don't think the song was very popular but there's a point in that song where it starts out. It's the song's called breaking. I think it's called breaking into Heaven Evan. There's IT starts out with four minutes of just like jungle sounds and maybe these kind of subtle drumbeats and then all of a sudden out of out of this chaos evolves this like deep funky guitar. It's super awesome. It's like right about the four minute mark but all right. That's the point point. I would want to walk out on the long minutes getting seated. They're like what are these exactly awesome but it is really it's Groovy groovy like it. So what is your biggest personal money pit right now for children yeah. Ah that matters so is there a is there piece of technology. That's making your life worse today aw well kind of going back to the money pit. I'm a sucker for textbooks. I end up spending an inordinate amount of textbooks spokes of money on textbooks and so I don't know and the fact that I can the fact that I can buy a textbook and put it on a kindle kindle version or something like that just means that I don't have to worry about storing the textbooks so there's there's less of a cost because I have to worry about storing it so I don't know maybe maybe e-readers readers is a piece of technology because then I just spent more on textbooks. Are there any shows that you're binging on right now. Well not very many because I've spent most of my time trying to research talk but there I did binge of while on some. Hbo Documentaries so there's some really interesting like true crime on I love die and others are kind of morbid but it's like and then there was another one like who killed Gareth Philips and then there was like Jihadi John and then and then totally different than those Mohammed Ali documentary which I thought was awesome. That's awesome so in your in your professional life or personal I for you. You're going anywhere interesting soon. We were doing a station I in a in a week. We're going to stay at the Beach Club here on property and they have one of the best pools on campus really Oh yeah yeah. They got a nice. Lazy River and they've got a sand bottom portion of the law.

"You are now listening to the big data beard in this episode was recorded at Disney's data analytics Conference Two Thousand Nineteen in Orlando Florida. Welcome back to another episode of the big of your podcast. I am Bret with me is Cory Minton cordray doing today on wonderful Bro. Awesome and we have a very special guest. Sam Really excited about this. We have McKay Okay Curtis. WHO's a senior principal decision science team with Disney. How're you doing today. Awesome favorite washed tell the audience a little bit about yourself and what your role is at Disney sure so like you mentioned on the decision science team I like to think of our team as a building the mathematical Algorithm ick guts of of decision science tools that we then get to give to other units within Disney so our team ends up doing work for lots of different arms of Disney of course we do a lot of stuff for the parks because we're housed within the parks and resorts segment of the company and but then we also do stuff for like Disney cruise line or Disney theatrical group which is the Broadway shows and we also do stuff for the Walt Disney studios pretty much any Armagh Disney so ESPN ABC. We usually have some sort of project going where we're usually doing something like building an analytical tool and specifically focuses on the math behind the tools the hard stuff right well the fun stuff the fun stuff hard for for some of US yeah. That's really cool so when you think of this term decision science. Can you unpack that a little bit and just what does that really mean to Disney well for for us. It's it's about a lot of a lot of our tools have multiple components but usually there's like a prediction component where we need to predict what's going to happen based on our decisions and then there's an optimization component where ultimately we want to influence the business to make better decisions. Disney's a great company to work for because the product is incredible double like I. I've got great memories going to dismantle. I think it is magical. It is magical so helping a company like that. Be Successful usually means that that Disney does more awesome things so Disney is going to be opened the New Star Wars land in California and they're going to be opening one. I think just this next week here in Florida. We got a free preview as cast members. We got to go see inexperienced. The land and the ride is incredible so being are on a team that gets to help the business decisions to help make the company successful so that it can continue to create groundbreaking. Things is really fun so so you're team. Obviously it uses a lot of different techniques to help drive some of these use cases and projects talk about some of the methods that your teams are using to make Disney so successful yeah absolutely so on star-team. We usually have two different backgrounds of individuals on our team. We have some people that come in with like an O. R. E. Background and they they have expertise. He's in some of the traditional optimization methods like linear programming mixed integer programming and then we have other people with more of stats or machine learning background and they usually I usually do build models that produce predictions or estimates of causal effects that then go into the optimization algorithm so we we kind of split the work in that way BIF- hiring people of different backgrounds and that's usually what goes into each tool that we build so what are the some of the challenges when you think about you know trying to deliver decision support systems and automation of those decision support systems with diverse teams like that. What are some of the challenges that your your face well. I think one of them is is I don't I don't. I don't think that's unique to us. I'm sure everybody deals with size. So once you get a specially if you think about like the scope of Walt Disneyworld if you think about just like the number of resorts sports and the number of theme parks that we have just here while disneyworld trying to produce tools that will deliver optimal decisions for all of the decisions that have to be made for any given problem even just simply as like oh we wanna make we want to build a tool for the resorts well depending on how you count the resorts here we have up to thirty different resorts here and each resort has potentially like ten different different room types and they've got different seasons so I think the scale of problems quickly gets out of hand and is a challenging problem so especially on the optimization Asian side. There's a lot of smart guys on our team that have optimization backgrounds that are equipped to try and deal with these scope of these problems and then on the more or stats side. I think something that we struggle with a lot is and again. I don't think it's unique to us but it's very difficult to make causal conclusions from from data that comes from non experimental settings and so that's always like a constant challenge. I think that we're we're always aware of what do you mean by that. How come you understand what you mean. Non Experimental sudden's well so well we the the gold standard for Khazal is usually running designed experiment because you know you've randomly assigned treatment and control and so- background factors at least on average shouldn't affect your your outcomes but when you're you're making decisions in a business environment and you're not allowed to run experiments then it becomes a challenge because well you may have business decisions may have been made because because they anticipated a certain outcome but then the but that goes to the point that like all models are inherently wrong but many are useful right. I mean there's an old saying in terms of like data science like there's no perfect model. There is no perfect model but but an experiment you don't actually have to rely on a model to rely on your knowledge of the fact that things were randomized iced and so and so that can help you so yes. All models are wrong. The problem is that sometimes you don't know how how wrong they are and WanNa find. That's that's all right yeah and wh and what you end up doing is you end up fitting a lot of different models and tweak them and you you look at the results like that doesn't make sense and you socialize them with other people on the team and they're like. Oh Yeah. That doesn't make sense you go back to the drawing board you fit more models and at the end of the day. Do you really know that the model that you produced is the truth and many anytime you don't and so that's kind of what you get and so dealing with that. I know there's been a lot of work lately. That's been like I would say advertise but that's probably not a weird word but there's a lot of work in the Causal Modeling Literature La- lately like from Judea Pearl and others who take directed a cyclic graph approach approach where at least in theory. There's this promise that if you have the right underlying causal directed a cyclic graph for your getting really matthew here but causal direct today cyclic graph then yes in theory you could estimate the right causal effects. The problem is is when we try to implement those in practice oftentimes oftentimes when we think Oh yeah that's the right causal graph if so we should fit that to our data and we should get the right effect and we do that and we still get results that are a little bit weird when you bring that to the business and say just that how often do they they just say I have no clue yeah is over. I mean it's a it's a really theoretical issue so we I mean we sometimes the details of the theoretical issues aren't aren't as of all that interesting to our but so how do you work with your stakeholders a house that interaction so that you can translate what you just talked about to something. That's a meaningful for their outcomes well. I think there's including them in the journey as helpful because then they then they generate a a healthy understanding of okay so this is kind of how statistics works this is kind of how data science works and it's not perfect and so I think they generate great a healthy understanding that helps them work better with the tools because they know when they should be skeptical and then they maybe get a better idea of when they feel like they can trust the the outcome and I think it's always healthy for everyone everyone at least until we figure out all these different problems that you come up and data science to have a certain amount of healthy skepticism with the stuff that comes out of data science hi and analytical models so last year at Disney state in conference. You gave a talk about reality versus hyper V. I A year later. Where do you think we all are in that hype cycle. Have we changed anything. Are we still there and where do you. Where do you think we were last year and this year well well so let me so it actually kind of relates to part of my talk that I gave this year and I think part of the reason why there's maybe some hype with. Ai An that. Maybe is not necessarily founded is like I don't think that the terminology is clear and that's been frustrating and so actually part of my talk this year I made the argument that there's this notion out there that machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence and if you just google search which on machine learning verses artificial intelligence you will see any number of articles that show in a plot that shows like artificial intelligence is the big circle and machine learning as the Small Mall Circle and is contained within artificial intelligence and I think that's been confusing because if you look at machine learning text books you'll see stuff like linear regression and logistic ticker aggression stuff that was invented in the eighteen hundreds before people were thinking about programming computers to be intelligent and they weren't developed for that for that reason and so I I think if you look at the history of the methods that we call machine learning it doesn't make sense to call them a and yet now everybody's calling everything and I think it's kind of frustrating and his lead to confusion. Maybe hype I don't know every model. Is You build a model. That's right because well. I wanted my computer to do it and that's what a is is anything I want my computer to do. I do teach a computer to do it and updated every day but still I still just so. I- argued in my in my talk that machine learning is not a subset of a and we shouldn't think about it that way because it can lead to confusion and I I did my best to cite some experts in the field. There's a paper by Pat Langley called old and he was the original editor of the Journal machine learning and it's called the changing science of machine learning and he has some great quotes in there where he he was kind of reflecting on how the field has evolved evolved and that it it kind of made the break in maybe the nineties and two thousands it kind of became hyper focused on prediction problems and kind of broke away from its more traditional. Ai Roots and so. I think it's healthier to think about machine. Learning is more focused on prediction these days than others a complication that you have reinforcement learning owning which in my opinion is more closely related to like optimization methods like that you would find an. Or programs like linear programming mixed integer program or dynamic programming in fact more close cousins to that where there's the rest of machine learning which is hyper focused on prediction and it's not necessarily prediction with the goal of being a either no it's prediction in terms arms of we want to find that one metric that can help make those decisions for.

"Data lab is joining this and he's brought along Ozzie Johnson deputy deputy CTO for domino data lab. John Ozzy how you doing today, voice doing great. Thanks so much for having us on. Doing wonderful John, you're the you're the only person in history. That's been on the of beard podcast three times now. Yeah, it has more times, and you get a jacket to know. It is my I have two high level, professional goals in my career in enterprise software. One is to have people stop saying on premise, it's on premises people for crying out loud, language, works, and language matters. Secondarily, would like to be kind of like the Burt Reynolds to the to the big data beer pogs like to the Johnny Carson show in the seven like, maybe like you're at a show and you like someone fell through ever. And he's around like just kind of, like not to the point of guest host, but almost two guest host. And if there's a satin jacket involved, I'm down. You gotta grow that machine. Learning mustache, though. Just look like Bert. I I'll do it. It'll be like Sharkey machine. It'll be great. That's. Well, John, we, you know, we know you in a different context. Tell us what you're doing over at domino, data lousy days. Yes, I am know sort of shifted gears a little bit, and one of the things that sort of I've seen over the last decade or so. You know, we've all heard the explosion of data pitch to add nauseam and all the quotes about, you know, it was Eric Schmidt, quote. That more data's been created in the last two years than all in the history of mankind and everyone has the, the hockey hockey stick, erves. But then there's sort of a question of, like all right. Once people figure out the infra once people figure out, how to store and move the state around. Then what then? So what, what's the what's the what's the what actually the most important, and most valuable things that can actually be done with this data. And I think I was kind of looking around and certainly the area of data science and artificial intelligence and machine learning. And, and how that's actually applied from business context. Seemed to be the most interesting thing when I kind of came upon domino, and they're sort of the company point of view, and they're sort of vision of the future that, like, okay, so if you assume if you work off the assumption that, yes, there is an explosion of data. We've heard about it for ten fifteen years, we've solved, some of the basic storage, and some of the basic transport problems, where now at this last stage of like, okay, what are you doing with this stuff? And what are the things that really matter? The, the perspective that the founders have is that will, you know, the difference is actually the models that are built as being like the artifact or being the manifestation of all this work. It's you know it's not just sort of trouble shooting operational systems, all that super valuable and security is actually, like, how do you take that data and then build models that actually? You know, fundamentally transform the way you do your business. I think you know, there are couple of touchstones companies out there net flicks being one of them Amazon being another that sort of proven their ability to, to really kinda dominate their markets with, with, with model building. But the same way that software eight the world twenty twenty five years ago. I think there's this notion of there's a new sort of a species sort of this, this new kind of digital creature that is the model but it lacks the same organizational rigor lacks. The same understanding and knowledge and lack same sort of governance and system of record that you would apply to everything from, you know, a customer record to software application, so it seems like it's a ton of greenfield, but we're getting there fast. So the attraction for me to domino was, like come be a part of this help help build build this company in the space that, you know, we feel like. You know, we're all we're all headed in that direction. You know, Amazon Amazon's the Netflix and the St. the stitch fixes, and the, you know, rent the runways, there's, there's kind of the Canaries McColl mine, but I think we're, you know, every industry has to get there. Yeah. Absolutely. So also, you've been around domino, a bit longer. John John's do join the team. And I think domino, a brilliant higher. I'll just say that. But I think yeah, I'd love to hear from your perspective just at a high level like what is domino? Data lab. Sure. Yes. So at the at the highest level say that domino is a platform for data science. So this is really bringing sort of all of the familiar concepts and abstractions, that you think of when you're thinking of a pads platform, as service and creating something that is specific to the needs of data. Scientists. And really the into end workflow it lets them go from sort of asking a question, refining it, formulating it, and turning it into something that has value to their organization, where their business, and then repeating that over and over again. Very cool. So it is interesting because I hear a lot of organizations in their offerings. They claim to be a platform. So, so help me understand. Like what, what are the unique challenges, I guess that, that domino is helping they decide to solve and helping, frankly the market deal with that really sets you apart as a is truly a platform and not just a, a platform poser, if you will. Yeah. So, so I think the thing, the thing that would hold out as really distinguishing characteristic of, of a platform is about being cohesive that is all of the things that you are abstracting, or pulling together are pulled together in a way that, that makes sense and that whatever you focused on in terms of, of your users, your primary consumers, you are removing or minimizing concerns outside of their best and highest purpose. When I think of platforms certainly, the example that I go to immediately. And I imagine most folks to would be something like Hiroko, you know, it was great for allowing apt developers to rapidly. Interet and then basically push. They're really only concerned with their code. They're not concerned, really even with other elements of infrastructure data connections beyond understanding what they are sort of taking away, all of the noise and letting folks work, most efficiently and with domino, we are doing that for data scientists. So when it comes to scaling managing life cycle. All of those things are taken care of in the work, which is done on the platform. We do our best to apply sane defaults to. So that is implicitly version things picking up your results your changes to your data changes to your code and committing all of. Those things in a way, that is version controlled in support of reproducibility interesting. So you mentioned there that it's a there are some parallels teams a platforms to development activities. We've known in the past software development. Right. But it's you know, when we talk with, you know, other data science and data sites. Teams model development is a fundamentally different process than Soffer development. Right. I mean, help me understand our help, the listeners really understand, like how model developments so different than software development processes, we've done in the past Schorr, the thing that, that I would consider most most critical here with the really the biggest difference, is that with traditional software development, you really have a different notions of, of correctness right? That there is there is some particular behavior. Some, some output that you can. Fine a working toward that you can test against your, your testing, in, in some sense when you're building models. But your, your definition of correctness is more case by case in really. It's, it's a it's a gradient. So it really think it really does want for a different set of capabilities. And one of those that we speak to most directly there is that there's a concern about, not just your code, but your data engineer results as well. Yeah, I think another way to think about this. And this is something. Because there's something so deterministic about building software. There's a, you know, for, you know, despite all of the progress of agile and continuous deployment and continuous integration. There's still a notion, a bit of a notion of sort of set it, and forget it. Once you get the functionality, right? And I use his evidence as much as we like to be on the bleeding edge like you not much Cobol is still out there in the world. You know, if you think about like how much and I've, you know, it's I'm not a young man, but, you know early in my career, I remember working on mainframes that at the time were ancient. And yet, if you think about in financial services in oil and gas in, in retail, and some of these major industries, a lot of this sort of batch, processing is still done on mainframes with code that was written by people that have long long since retired, and I think that the, you know, the difference from a model model standpoint as he spoke to is, there's no, there's no static notion that, that the fundamental fibers of model can be changed by the data that flows through it. So whether that is. You know while you're training or while the model sitting in production so like drift is real, and you have to build that into it, and I think that, that's one really important factor. I you know, we all think about, again, going back to the net flicks, or the Amazon recommendation, models, none of those static. You know, there's, you know, I can't imagine there's much code that was written five ten years ago with either of those services that are their still servicing and production, there's, there's a constant integration because of the nature of, you know, the science aspect of it, and I think that, that's one fundamental different. You know, I, I can't imagine there's a Cobol equivalent, but. So when when domino data last thinks about solving this problem with the platform, when, when we're doing research that looks like you really solve it in a variety of ways, like there's some critical pillars functionality of domino, data, would you mind kind of walk in his through kind of those key? Pillars of functionality that really comprise, the domino day lead platform. Sure, yeah. So the, the way I think of this would be in really three three or four and tend to think of this a bit like narrative, which is I think is best described in terms of building a data science practice, or team. And where the starts is even with really team of one or two again. You, you want your data scientists working on data science. So as soon as the amount of data or the complexity of model moves beyond, what can be done on a laptop, you now have a need for scale, certainly there, folks that have wide ranging skills. But if your data scientists are working on DevOps tasks if they're worried about. Out instance, lifecycles and some provider, they're likely not working to their highest purpose. So one of the first things that we address, there is a scale I would call it a self service with constraints to enable data scientists to do what they need to do. But still offer a visibility and control to the folks whose primary job is managing infrastructure. Ideally, we make the world easier for both sides of that. And that's an aligned interest. That's great. The second is about collaboration and really reproducibility. So when a team starts to grow beyond the number of people that can really sit in a room and, and have a an easy conversation. You need a way to preserve the work that's done. And make it available to be used as new members come on or retain when they go. So our value, there is again about version. Ing, everything that goes through the system again, in terms of code, data results making that searchable and really positioning ourselves as a as a system of record for what work has been done making discoverable for use in Newark. So now moving forward, we've addressed really two things..
