"Of innovation Developments are not worth the money. They are not. So We've covered three the questions that you should ask consultants before you hire them. Now let's jump in to question number four. Russian number four is is Can you adapt and adopt the approach from the innovation consultant? Last question was focusing on what is unique about their approach. What is it that they're doing? That's attracting this following In this case, Can you adapt and adopt and you would not believe how hard this is? One is. This does their approach lend itself to be easily a death and adopted into You've been allowed to adapt it and to adopt it. So there's only two points I wanna make on this one is If you're gonna hire innovation consultant and they're bringing in approach to the table. Do you get granted the rights to use their approach with the organization or Are you paying simply for a training class? And when you get the 1st 10 train and you want the next 10 train to get a higher, bring them back again and you gotta bring them back again, right? So they get the hooks into you, and then you constantly have to bring them back. In order to get the rest of your organization. Where can you take their training materials and, yeah, you may have to pay some more for it. Can you take their training materials, customize it to you and then use it. Maybe you pay a little royalty. Some consultants will do that. But sometimes all those things you cannot adapt it adopted. This is a standard course. You want us to come in? We will teach this course multiple times across the organization. You gotta really think long and hard, because if you're trying to List the innovation skill within your team and within your organization. You really have to think about how Do you get that training? How do you get that for me here already across the entire organization. The other is is, Are they willing to adapt it to your organization? To your culture to your approach? Even your language right? Gave in the last segment. We talked a little bit about Kroger. Would Kroger did that I thought was just absolutely brilliant was is they took the language in the fire framework. Used program words. Kroger has its own approach to how is it manage projects and phases and testing cycles of They want to test something out. They used their language because the when the staff and leadership Heard about innovation project and the project was the described It was using Kroger terminology, Everybody, their position was. Oh, I know what that word means. Why know what that Days means over. I know what that budget I don't mean because it's using program language. So One. You didn't make sure that you're granted the rights to use the approach within your organization and then two is the consultant willing to adapt to your organization's culture. Approach in language. Absolutely. Critical. So again, Let's walk through here. The four questions you should ask before hiring a Michigan Sultan is this innovation consulted a proven innovator. Back to my analogy for today's show. You're not gonna hire someone to teach you how to drive Who's never driven a car? Do not hired innovation insulted who's never innovated. They can't point to. Award winning product A, You know. Ah, being a chief innovation officer, a major company like Procter and Gamble or Kroger, you know. Global health or male clinic or idea, right? You got that some credibility to Also they've been hired by Who else is hiring them, right? Are they The clients that have Found them to be valuable. That's a little bit of that credibility. Chuck three. What is it about their innovation consulted that's attracting this following? What's unique about that approach and then four? Can I dad to adopt that approach from that innovation consultant? Can I actually bring it in? Can I modify it? And can I adopt it? And by adopting it is is. Can I get my entire organization on board, right? For questions you.

"We're so glad you are back here again with us with another episode. This show is going to be a little controversial, particularly if you are a consultant that particularly innovation consultant because well, I'm going to talk about is my opinions are my opinions. My view of innovation consultants, so Let's not delay which just go ahead and jump right in. So let's define what a consulted Dios Consultant is somebody who gives a professional expert advice. It's somebody who's got some form of expertise that they are going to share their getting paid to share it with a client now. I started my career early on as a consultant. I was a consultant with a small company. But then got acquired by Computer Sciences Corporation. So the CIA see used to be one of the big six consulting houses a lot of I t outsourcing. It was the company that invented business process reengineering the whole concept behind it. I was working in the industry vertical specifically Telecom. My background at that time was heavily wireless, heavily mobile. So that was the work that I did. I was a consultant. I had expertise. People would pay CSC to get my time to come in and share that expertise with them. A lot of my expertise was in building out new mobile networks. So I did the very first to the Jie ISMs in Europe, which would be modest mon, which is now Vodafone. Um I did nt in South Africa did support in Malaysia. Led the effort at Omni Point, which is the first G Osem. Network in the United States in that, and how many point became T mobile here and United States so Um, So that was my expertise. People paid money to get expert access to me and access to The Ah to my team who also had similar background and similar kinds of experiences. But what about professional expert advice? What we mean by professional expert advice? In my case, I had very deep expertise in the mobile space. I had Done it many, many, many, many times the company that I was with prior to it being acquired by CSC. That company had actually done the 1984 field trial for 18 T in Chicago. Market one mobile network in the world, the very first sailor network and that was the test market for 18 T when they first tried, um doing cellular network. So this is you know the true Siler network, not wireless phones or radio phones as they used to be called back in the day True cellular Phones, multiple cell towers, automatic handoffs all of those kinds of things. So That's what professionals properties is all about now. The topic for today is not about our consultants. Good or bad. And look, we've We've all had our our our own experiences with consultants, right? We've hired them. Some of them worked out. So then they have not worked out. But you hire consultants one because you need the resource is or you lack and expertise. You lack, um, familiarity in the area. It's a new area. Your team. You don't have anybody in your team. That has experience that you're bringing the consultant in help kind of get you started and a new area. This effort is becoming extremely popular with innovation. There are you calls all the time for recommendations of consultants who can come in and help organizations around specifically their innovation efforts. And As I looked through it, and I looked at the consultants that are out there and I've talked with consultants. I have a pretty No pretty negative opinion. My belief is is that 80%? Of innovation consultants or not worth the money. My mother that's set there for a second. If you're in innovation consultant, you're probably jumping up out of your seat, throwing your phone. You're yelling at me. But Based on the consultants that I've seen out there. 80% of individual zones are not worth the might know. Why am I saying that? Well, I'm saying that is is It's about professional expertise. You don't get expertise from reading a book. And then now all the sudden you are an expert. You don't read how to drive a car and then you go out. You become a driving instructor. No, you have driven a vehicle, Then you teach others how to do it. The same applies to innovation. There are loads of innovation consultants that are out there that I've never done it. They never done it. So what I'm going to share with you or The four questions you should ask before hiring an innovation of sultans. You should ask all four of these questions. You should get into the details with each of these questions, so we're going to do one right out of the gate here. This is probably the big one that I focus in on whenever I'm talking to. Evaluating consultants for others. I get called all the time by corporations. They Hey, Can you recommend an innovation consultant? This is the first question. Is this innovation consulted a proven innovator. Justus. Yeah, you can't be. You can't teach someone else how to drive a car. If you have not actually driven a car, Same applies to innovation. So what does that I mean by this Has the consulted led an innovation for organizations known for innovation success. Have they been a chief innovation officer Someplace? Had they lead innovation teams that have actually delivered that just Set up processes but who's actually done it? Is this person credited for creating an innovation at major market success if they Done great products or new services of they. They've gotten some form of credit for the work they've done. Have they been? You know, uh They've done something that is market moving. That's what you want. That's the expertise. You know you want to boring And the third is rookie knows by industry for innovation leadership. They've been written about. Have they done credit in publications Have they been, um they received awards have the products or services that they lead. Have they received the wars? Do they have a technical and me to their credit? Do they have the best product of the year for industry? These are the three things for that. You need to ask your consultants. If they are not true Innovators don't stop. This is it? They hope clear this bar. Then you can stop the video now and One because they can't do this. I can't answer this that they haven't led an innovation offer. Not just innovation, after all on their own, whether innovated creating an innovation consulting for doesn't count. Have they led innovation at a major brought a company where they, you know, doing something really little leadership role it at Apple or at You know some new mobile app or autonomous vehicle company? Whatever it is. Recognized by industry for innovation. Leadership is an important one..

Reuters reports that the group posed as a news outlet publishing articles that attacked. Vice. President Biden they targeted facebook and twitter. Yes. But also spread on Gab and parlor social media networks that attract right wing users Camille Francois is chief innovation officer at graphic, which helped research effort. She says, basically, disinformation is looking for a new home. It is the first time that we found for an actors use Palais Account and Gab accounts, and it was difficult because while as an industry, we've learned to work together to take action in between some of the social platforms. They are still social platforms that are that are not observing the same rules. I think that the main takeaway is if we want to be effective at tackling foreign interference, we have to tackle for interference on old platform. This is no longer just a facebook problem or just a twitter problem it is definitely a whole of the industry problem. You mentioned that they don't have the same rules. Is it a sign that perhaps some of the methods that facebook and twitter have employed against disinformation might be working a little better that something that platforms like Gavin Parlor, where anything goes might spread information a little better yet said that Cindy the, that's a sign of maturation from the firms. Some of that is also on the government to to. Sort of clarify rain. So in the specific context, we are talking about sanctioned entity in. So understanding what are the types of constraints that apply when platforms are notified by this type of activity is is also a government at question right? That creates an interesting conversation, which is whose job is it to make sure that we can tackle foreign interference together

Need these things and tech investors want in venture capital entities have invested nearly five and a half billion dollars in medical tech from January through June that's according to rock health a company that helps digital health startups. But there are those urging caution about the direction. These investments take all too. Often the technology has attempted to reengineer the process of care rather than leverage. The most efficient process of Care Jed constance is a healthcare consultant. For example, he says, it took years for the developers of medical records technology to get it right because early versions made it difficult for doctors to Talk to patients and fill in the required computerized forms. Constant says there's a history of companies creating what's flashy instead of what's practical and so the venture capital investor backed efforts have found them to be largely ignorant. There are also concerns that new health technology could exacerbate disparities in healthcare between rich and poor communities doctor. My mom is the former chief innovation officer.

Data privacy careers: A passion for learning
"Lot of our listeners, the main slant of cyber cyber. Listener, working out what type of careers they want to enter? So I wanted to sort of. You. Know some of the career steps that you took to get to the position you're at now what types of positions experiences skills learning that you need to do to become a chief innovation officer? The sort of past signposts. Yeah. Well it certainly. Routes that is decided in wake up one morning any number of years ago. A vats where I want to be specific ob although you know it was it was in general arena if you would. Terms of getting to that place a large part of by. Three quarters of my my career path was very much on the practitioner side of the House. So let's say I was actively. Putting together the programs in medium security solutions to solve problems directly for the business. So in this capacity, it's it's. A lot of the skills learned from there kind of blow it out to do on a larger scale for for numerous organizations hundreds of. Thousands written that scale, and so some of the things that really helped me along the way was a very. Very, early understanding of technology and its interconnection point. So I. Don't know that everyone needs to necessarily you know the the different layers of the model, but it's helpful. Know that everyone needs to to know how to programs, but certainly advocate for it and so you know picking up those types of deep technology skill sets along the way along with the swerve just managerial skill sets. You know by the time you talk about you might position on is very helpful but. I still spend a lot of time learning a lot of time learning and I think not so much what? What the steps were to get here so much as the steps to to be good at what one does win they're they're not does require constant learning. So you programming for example. So I've been I've been getting my hands dirty in learning. Golan, for example. I'm actually really enjoying that Trying to think. Spent a Lotta time working with it. We've got a number of data scientists on the team in, and there are some new concepts in theories that spent the last two years really getting very deep into an understanding how how they operate you know how adversarial networks are created in those different types of emo models or building Sarah. I think the the easy easy. The short answer is regardless of where you want to end up I think it has to be A. Passion so much so that you have to enjoy getting really deep into the study of it as opposed to just the practice of it, but that does need to be be healthy balance of both studied MMG this. Yeah.

"We need to run it and measure it differently to support being able to do these things. It's not just about hiring scrum Masters and and creating teams know it's it's it's really a home. It's it's the locus of your transformation of your whole business. Yes. So so so now now you're the chief Innovation officer and net impact strategies, which which gives you the ability to work across its net impact is is mostly government focused or merciful federal government. So a federal government some commercial but but our our focus is the federal government clients dead. Uh, we've got a pretty heavy investment in the Health Community Federal Health, uh Community. We've also got a heavy investment in financial oversight agencies and I think will be continue to Branch out there. But yeah, it's you know, our job is to to take what has been like the whole essence of the company was started with a lady who had worked in some of the larger Federal systems integrators or product areas and the dissatisfaction with the ability to focus on Mission and focus on the customer value package. So I'm very happy in that our our DNA is about focusing on the needs of our customers which goes back to my vision package of focusing not just on the business of it, but on the mission delivery and what technology brings so I feel like we have an opportunity here to change. Through our customers what they can do to drive their mission value, right and must be it must be it's a different perspective. I mean, I might created my first startup. I was working for several years at at Motorola or company that Motorola bought and doing something trying to make success doing all this engineering manufacturing supply-chain stuff and software and wage. And and when I left Grim, I started up I start I funded the start up by creating a management consulting company. And so the original product was just doing what I knew had to do at one company and trying to do it across many companies off and then that turned into eventually our product ID and we built something but the point being it was, you know, I had talked to other companies all the time when I was working in Industry trying to do these things, but the amount I learned in the perspective I had now actually working as a partner to these other companies and learning the the you know, yep. Broad brush. Yeah, they're high-tech electronics companies one makes cable box is the one makes laptops things aren't going to be that different..

"Maybe it's part that but it's also part, you know, those data centers have been managed for quite a long time and the contracts that exists are either cost-plus contracts or like they may have made sense when they were six years ago, but now they're they're the contracts themselves almost limit the ability to really work out of services funded and I write there's only way for me to get better is generally by getting more the amount of investment to innovate and become and give out better Services. It's not nearly a dog. And frankly I look at their business model is more people go to cloud services how their costs not going to go through the roof. It's just the cycle time for improvement and change. There's not a value proposition there. Whereas commercial Cloud providers weather there in the Gulf Cloud space the the I else. The the the icy space or or commercial Cloud space them is an incentive to innovate cried to constantly provide new Services is enough customers there that are demanding new capabilities that you know, your Innovation Cycles am moving, you know at a order of magnitude or more faster than what you can do. If you're working your own data set, right? Yes, somebody somebody maybe somebody's innovating somebody's innovating underneath you and found in there for over time. You'll naturally have more services you can use as those services are available and and you may decide to use the services or build your own on the cloud. But you know if want to get started with a dog Data warehousing then don't spend any time. There's a data warehouse. There's a database specifically for that and and there's something you can at least experiment with it's available in their their allows us to get into the right space of affects vs. Capex, right? I mean part of the part of the the technical debt that's held people back is the need to throw big chunks of money a technical refresh right Hardware technical refresh in lieu of hey if I can topics that that gives me a better value proposition. I have more control over that way and it it keeps me from doing a penny wise and pound foolish decision of trying to extend the service life of something that really should have been refreshed of years ago. Yeah, no for sure and from a security standpoint from a quality reliability standpoint there. There's wins all over the place where we're in our customer base off. That there's lots of cloud adoption and hybrid Cloud adoption in our large Financial customers. There's there's still a lot of they're building their own cloud like services, but they're able to hire those people to build those services. And so for them, you know, they're not necessarily adopting Cloud at the same public Cloud providers at the same speed but are creating that same underlying infrastructure-as-a-service in platform services. So that those that are building deploying applications Services can do it rapidly and I think it's obviously critical part if you're going to do any sort of c i d ROM you need infrastructure that you can wield with software..
"chief innovation officer" Discussed on Outcomes Rocket
"There's a part of me. Sometimes which kind of irks at the term patient centric like? Oh we're very patient. Centric will what is all of this for any not you know. I feel that way about value based carrots like no kidding goods. Oh okay value. You're a you WANNA provide value with your care. That would be nice. Let's focus on that. I'm with you. I'm with you. So every company always has setbacks. I love to hear about one of the setbacks you guys have had and how it's contributed to helping you deliver a better experience to healthcare company. I'd say from from a corporate perspective. Be a setback was probably early on like. I said I've been doing this since since two thousand and in two thousand one we had to you know as a crisis in and we had to let a bunch of people go and it was really early you know relatively early on and maybe another point in our in our journey where we've had a contraction we need to let people go and I think those moments that's the worst as a business owner and as a leader to have to sit down with someone and say you know because of either circumstances out of my control and things that we have or haven't done to tell them that they don't have a not gonna be able to continue their employment. It's it's it's really hard and those moments very soul searching and I would say that the lesson coming out of that is to be good steward of your people however whatever that means like you might not have responsibility. You might but either way that as a leader or even just as as a teammate that the sense of being a protector and a steward of your people is important. And the second being having empathy in connecting with people and that the way to have those difficult conversations is to do it from a place of humility and respect and openness and allow yourself to go there and Decca manifest and a lot of different ways. But I think that's those are a couple of lessons. Yeah you know and I think we we all go through that and Jay appreciate you bringing that up you know because when times get tough everything gets tough and Those contractions can happen as a leader and as teammate. You've got think about how to most. I guess how to do it in the most. I don't know if nicest word but maybe human empathetic way right. Yeah we're doing right now and we have been doing great and I don't WanNa pay picture that we're contracting want to make clear but it's also keep it keep in mind those those lessons in the good times right and like always always always bring that that intention of of being real and being human in realizing you know when we're in business we're in conference rooms with these corporate environments and you're playing a certain role that there's a tendency to to see like okay. I need to be that role and speak those things and kind of stay within those boundaries. And there's truth to that you're there to serve a purpose but there's also just remembering that like everybody's a human being all in the room with all the all the rules in making for those looking for those those ways to connect on a genuine level and that's critical. What are you must excited about today? I'm most excited about the potential for digital in healthcare. I think we're just beginning. I think we're there's frustration with how slow things move in the industry and you know there's reasons for that. I don't think we should focus on that. I think we should focus on the fact that we're probably not even in the bottom of the first inning and there's just tremendous potential to both to solve the huge problems in our healthcare using digital. It's not a silver bullet right and there's a lot of things that need to work together but just to transform the way that we do healing in the way that we do medicine in this country that has gonna lead to better outcomes less of a burden financially on society and better experiences and we're empathetic experiences. So that's what I'm excited about. The potential for for digital do move those balls forward significantly. Yeah and you look at the landscape of what's happening. Every day you see digital health company getting fifteen million dollars. One hundred million dollars like there's so much investment going on in this space. Yeah it just it's incredibly. You're gonNA say something I mean I have unlike what is the term cautiously optimistic in in that round. Like I think there's there's a I have mixed feelings about that. I think there's a lot of a lot of money. And this is part of what we were. Our mission node. Health is to kind of help bridge the gap between digital innovation. That's happening outside in Silicon Valley in places like that that is very BC driven in that kind of raising a lot of money and bridging the gap between that and actually deployed scaled technology. In health systems are in hell in actual operational environments. Because most of those companies are gonNA fail some of they're gonNA fail spectacularly and maybe raise a billion dollars. I won't name names so I think there's a big we need to really optimize those dollars and also bring more evidence based thinking and practices to those dollars. I think that's not. That's just growing pains. I think in part but yes I agree. It's exciting now that we're investing in it. But sometimes I think I'd rather give fifteen million dollars. Should a bunch of nurses to do a bunch of design thinking prototyping them a bunch of folks sitting in an office who don't really understand how it all works Genn? That's a great call out day at appreciate you mentioning that and we're talking about two different things right we're that digital innovation and that's being outsourced versus homegrown and the stuff that you guys are doing to help. The existing operational things being done within the hospital and some great gains to be had there some greater efficiencies and better experiences. So it's so great that you guys are working in this area. You need both. You need both to be clear and I. We do work. We work across both. And there's there's definitely startups that we work with an often. That's to your point. They have clinicians in the room or on. The staffer in the board are bringing that perspective in that can. That's helpful. Yeah well this has been great Jay. The importance of being human centric and design thinking. It's the tip of the spear and so I love if you could leave us with the closing thought but also where can we continue to learn more so you can go to our website which is motive stash made dot com or you can look at the node health websites which is which node an od dot health? And as part of that is working with leading group to develop a set of measures for a user experiences in in healthcare and in medicine specifically. And that's a tool that's available there now and can be downloaded in you can score any digital experience and baseline measured over. Time would love your feedback. It's a tool. That's startups have already started using an shipping product with features. That are more human centric so that's available and I appreciate it in terms of a closing thought I would just say let's all remember. We're all on the same team and to be widely collaborative to be bold and make fearless choices and to remember. This is all about the patient at the end. That's a great message. Jay and I appreciate you sharing that with us and and the work that you guys do. Listeners check them out. There's an opportunity for you to do more with with your existing way of doing things and I think Jay and team are doing outstanding job of helping improve the way that we offer our patients a better experience and better outcomes so j a really really grateful that you stop by and and some time with us. Thanks for having me solve really enjoyed it. Thanks for listening to the outcomes rocket podcast be shooter visit us on the web at.

R/x for Healthcare: Better UX Through Measurement and Deeper Engagement with Jay Erickson, Chief Innovation Officer at Modus
"Just got back from Argentina year over there Yeah that's right. We have an office down there and I was doing some work down there and Yet we just moved back last week. Interesting time to move back of course to be traveling around but love Argentina. Wow well welcome back to the States. And you are also very focused on the digital aspects within healthcare so tell us what inspires your work in the healthcare vertical In the core of my inspiration is a very personal so seven years ago. I was diagnosed with advanced metastatic to sicker cancer. I spent about a year and treatment at Sloan. Kettering forty five days in patient. Three months of Chemo for big surgery. So I was sort of a professional patient for a year and I learned law things. I'm six years. No evidence of disease now so I feel very much. Thank you thank you and as you can imagine I learned a lot of things and a lot of different levels but one thing I I learned in observed in that role was just in my opinion. How poorly a digital was being deployed in space for patients and for clinicians and this is not a knock on Sloan. They're amazing they saved my life. But it's something that's across the industry. As as soon as I came back and so before that I was the chief operating officer is really just focusing on running the business and when I came back I said this is something I really want to dive back into. Working more directly with clients focusing on as a problem to be solved doing what I can to put my shoulder to the wheel of making better more effective experiences for patients and for clinician. So that's my My touchstone of the passion that I bring to it. Well I think it's A powerful story Jay and I appreciate sharing that and congratulate you for for beating cancer and so great that you have taken this upon yourself. Having been there done that as a patient better and more efficient are two things that we could definitely get from from digital technologies. Tell us a little bit more about how you guys are. Adding value to the ecosystem through digital so our focus is really on creating experiences that are engaging in effective and this mostly for patients but also for clinicians and sometimes caregivers and bringing best practices to the industry that hasn't really been woven into the to the way that the digital products have been built outside. The industry and healthcare has has been data centric and rightfully so right. The legislation was passed. You know twenty plus years ago saying you need to get everything into the data and and that's been journey and now that we have all the data in we're starting to figure out ways to unlock the data and share the data and do more with the data. We need to stop being so data centric and start being more human centric and understanding that people are complex and their situations are often very unique and we need to build experiences that meet them where they are and make things easy for them and drives towards the outcomes that we want for them. So that's a long answer and I can be unpacked. Non Thought of different ways but how we sort of more tactically are coming into his kind of doing really running more design thinking processes That haven't been lacking so picking up on sort of clinical insight or a market research research site in farm industry for instance and building on that doing ethnographic research actually talking to patients in really understanding their sort of holistic view. Their Longitudinal journey that might touch a bunch of different things. A bunch of different providers a bunch of different mediums a bunch of different co morbidity or products understanding those longitudinal journeys doing rapid prototyping and. Co Design and collaboration ways. And then putting those back for early prototype validation before anything gets actually develop so that process of design thinking is something that has been lacking in the industry and has led to a lot of digital experiences that are either painful or hard to navigate or create unnecessary cognitive. Load especially in the case of clinicians. It's interesting you know. And I'm glad you mentioned clinicians as well because bad experience exists on on the patient side and on the clinician side. As well and to your point there's a lot that's going on that's great but there's an opportunity to do so much better and saw I'd love to hear from. Uja On on what your team has done. That's made either outcomes better or business models better within healthcare. Yeah so I think it's. It's applying that process that I described by lake. You know it's all in. The end is about outcomes right so you really are trying to make better Clinton experiences. They can spend more time to medicine less time on data entry or so. They're less burnt out. Say let's make less mistakes and in the patient case you're trying to keep them engaged. You're trying to get data to flow and to have the outcome of their experience in their disease journey or or or health journey. Have a better outcome. So it's not just about great experiences to create great experiences. I WanNa make that clear to but specifically applying those cases. I mean. We've done everything from working with. Pharmaceutical companies to develop a digital prototypes around using stress managed using behavioral change techniques around social support for stress management or behavioral scientists at pharmaceutical companies or working with healthcare providers to provide better pathways for patients to navigate their journeys. So it's a lot of simple stuff and it can be starting with schedule. An appointment and navigating to the in helping with with with transport access to the site of care. Just that doesn't require blockchain or a I or anything fancy but doing that in a way that is easy in as easy as Uber or another experience that we're used to in our normal life bringing that level of ease and utility to those experience that's table stakes right and then it's going from. They're moving more into actual medicine side of things and we do a lot of stuff around adherence and getting people know we know that that forty percent of outcomes is driven by behavior. And there's really nothing better at a scalable in evaluating level to help with behavior change them and digital devices mean there's a there's a shadow side to that too also right. Mike. We're all addicted to these things. But that same power can be used to drive behavior change whether it's adherence to medication or physical therapy or just a care plan so creating experiences for patients that help them with that. So that's we start to get into the closer to the medical side of things so that's some of the ways that we are bringing our skills that we've owned also in other industries like you've working in hospitality and retail and e commerce and all these other industries that have more are more mature digitally especially from human centric perspective bringing all those practices and tools to the space
Camille Francois on Disinformation Campaigns
"How do foreign actors spread this information online and engage with us to sow chaos or simply spread their message? What have we learned from the campaign of Russian meddling into the two thousand sixteen presidential elections in the US and all we ready for? What's coming in two thousand twenty? Welcome to good code. A weekly podcast on ethics in our digital lives may mean is chain than the. I'm visiting journalist at Cornell Text Digital Life Initiative and I'm your host this week we talk with Kemi Hosoi. She's the chief innovation officer at Graphic and Network Analysis company that studies the spread and patterns of Information Online. She specializes in disinformation campaigns and media manipulation before joining graphic. She was the principal researcher. Google Jigsaw working on electro integrity and this information too. She's been in that space for very long time long before it was in the headlines. Every day I sat down with chemicals wave week ago minutes before her firm released a report called. Red Card which details a recent inoffensive campaign led by an Indian. Pr Firm on several issues including sucker after the two thousand sixteen elections the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Gave graphic out all the data they had on the Russian disinformation efforts targeting the elections millions of posts linked in large part to the Internet research agency the air a patrol farm based instant fetish perk spent seven months studying these posts looking for what she calls the. Abc's of this information actors behavior and content. So I began by asking her to walk us through what that campaign looked like concretely. Just to be clear on something. I don't think we got older data. We had all the data that the Senate could obtain at that time. And I think it's really interesting that nobody to the state had the entire data of everything that happened. The really means that we still have blind spots on this campaign and how you know how it functioned in how targeted users Certainly take a step back. The Russian attempt to target. Us audiences doesn't start in two thousand sixteen. It starts two years earlier with a project called project. Lakhta those two I years between two thousand fourteen in two thousand sixteen really interesting to study because they show a lot of like bizarre experiments that the Russians doing to understand the Americans and to try to see like what are going to be hot button issues. A how can you create panic? How can you go through local media to do that? How can you manipulate local executives to create panic you see in those first two years? Two thousand fourteen in two thousand fifteen a series of again bizarre experiments cullman chemical is one that people tend to be familiar with where the Russian campaign traits to create a local panic saying that chemical plant has exploded of course none of that is true but they send SMS to elected officials? They go on youtube and create fake explosion videos and you know pretty quickly get dismissed as a hoax a year. After that around Thanksgiving they try to create a panic around Thanksgiving. Turkeys being poisoned with Manila. And so you know for two years is sort of like poke around and try different things in two thousand sixteen. Of course it's election year. That is campaign that I think we're all familiar with in so here at that stage. They have fairly developed fake personas rights fake accounts fake individuals fake news organizations and advocacy groups. And those are going to engage in social media to divide the country as much as possible. Sometimes they even tried to use social media to get people to take action. Off-line right so there's a famous case where in Texas. They try to organize to groups of protesters on opposing issues. And they try to sort of like have them be face to face protesting in the streets from one another on the same day at the same time in two thousand seventeen is interesting moment to where the platforms are catching up with security and are starting to take down but at their own different pace facebook as the first to move the identify that some of these groups are not real organizations but are actually run from Saint Petersburg and they start taking it down one by one and that creates a note bizarre situation where these trolls start using the platforms against one another. So in the case of a group that attract many closely that was called black matters. Us was a fake group. It got kicked out from facebook. I in the they sort of moved to twitter to complain about being taken down from facebook and then they starting buying Google ads. In order to redirect traffic from their new websites. Right to two thousand seventeen is very much a cat and mouse chase between the trolls into different platforms and in two thousand eighteen. We see yet a different face of that activity with the midterms. Where here? It's a lot of sort of method. Trolling writes a lot of like telling people that they're going to do something. That's really big in the large campaign when it isn't really exactly the case. Finally we've seen them again at play in two thousand nineteen with a campaign with really good operational security rights of so much harder to look at the accounts and to say. Oh those are the accounts of the IRA but remarkably similar in terms of divisive content. That we have come to know a same communities being targeted of course because they're focused on twenty twenty this time. They're talking about the candidates that they were not talking about in two thousand sixteen Remarkable remarkably consistent strategy in that set. That was taken down in October. Two Thousand Nineteen where so the actors were mostly coming from. Russia on troll farms their behavior. Basically the main trait was what these Very elaborate pursue Nazar. How would you describe their tactics at the time? Yeah it's a great question because I think in reality. They were much more than one actor right. So if you take an actor like for instance it really wasn't in a lot of people's radar and we tend to think like. Oh Iran can learn from Russia and followed along. That's not true. Iran's started using information operations to target American audiences as soon as two thousand nine. They were already a lot of actress. President Two Thousand Sixteen. We were honesty also just not looking for them within the Russian actor is you of course had the I- Rachel Farm. Which is what I just discussed but you also had Russian military intelligence also being active in the election an honesty pursuing very different strategies for the IRA. We saw these very sophisticated fake personas. Some of them were quite popular on lines of my my own favourite troll is Jenna Abrahams. She was presenting as a woman in her mid thirties and her big thing was to do like very funny and engaging jokes online a lot of pop culture commentary and sometimes some really bizarre sort of political and racist commentary. She had built a huge audience to the point that she had often been cited in mainstream media. So that's for the IRA side the story right. So you create very sophisticated personas. Some of them are going to be very successful. And then you sort of used them to divide Americans to sort of like increase chaos in society. That's a bit of different strategy than we've seen from actors like the GRU Russia military intelligence seemed to have been more involved in the hacking and leaking operations right so hiking politicians obtaining material and in creating these campaigns about the release of the material of emails for instance so now fast forward to today. So you brought us through a little bit. What happened in the year before the year? Afterwards and since men in terms of volume has online deception. Faded has it grown. Is it just same? Same Old. Tim will offer Said's very hard to track. But I think it's fair to say that it's changed a lot. Sophisticated actors are getting better in many ways at hiding traces but in many ways investigators in platforms and reporters also getting better at finding these deceptive campaigns. So all the foreign actress side is an interesting cat and mouse game with. I think it's more type of government actors being involved being a little bit better at it every time and growing community of people who are here to expose them in who are sort of like catching up with these techniques. The thing that's also interesting is the growth of a Disney vacation for higher market marketing firms. That are now sort of selling fake profiles in creating fake organizations on behalf of their customers.
"chief innovation officer" Discussed on The No Limits Selling Podcast
"Today I have the privilege of sitting down with Julie Lancer here at What do you call this place? It's called the startup you. MD At the diamondback garage which is a mouthful and the chief innovation officer. That's right at the University of Maryland. College College Park. Welcome to the program. So the reason I wanted to reach out was just A less than a month ago. They had ted conference upstairs. Right that's right and one thing that struck me was the amount of powerful amazing capable women that came on the stage and it wasn't that they were women that were just amazing amazing human beings and it was just kind of Nice that they actually had a concentration them that. That's great to hear because I share that same thing one of my goals. When I used to run a nonprofit fit for women for empowering women was to make put myself out of business because we might find you a job? Yep We don't need to anymore. Highlight that somebody's a woman. They're just a person in there at the same level as everyone else kind of pissed me off the other day. I don't get pissed off often. It was they did a space walk with the all female thing is like. Get the Frick Outta here. We need to start easing. Women did that. It's not like it was reallowed. Little women to go do that is what the underlying this is that they're still i. Yes Sir Women and you know other other you know Ethnicities and things like that not just based based on gender but other groups where we need to stop like Sean challenged. This is the first time I call it emotional constipation so you get to work with a lot of folks in this joint. Some of them would be professors. That have brilliant idea. But maybe don't have the expertise not really start a business right and then you have other people that just are here that want to start a business tell me about the different food groups and then we'll kind of dive into each one sure sure So yeah we have Brilliant researchers who've made a fantastic discovery that WANNA see that discovery out into the world and oftentimes a startup. Is the the best mechanism for doing that. So we have a faculty member WHO's cured. Ms In mice and yeah so whether or not that will work in a human. I don't know but it deserves a chance to be We have another faculty WHO's Figured out how to detect Salmonella produce in not forty eight hours as per the current. The way it's done four hours and that's a huge difference in can save lives without or saved Medical bills and so got a lot of really cool things so there's faculty members at supposed to curing. Ms In my think of how many amazing life changing world altering inventions never got made because that step from idea to letting the world know about it never happened effectively. That's what drives me to be here honestly sleep. It's if the cure for cancer is sitting in someone's head or in someone's lab and it doesn't have the chance to realize whether or not it is truly you know that it truly works. That's just not acceptable to me. Every good idea deserves a chance to be successful and I even say every idea whether or not it's good who am I to judge right right And so that's what we do here. We activate fearless ideas with the idea that they can drive transformational impact on that. I don't want on my watch for us to miss something that you know didn't get a chance to to see the light of day. Yeah or somebody comes out three years later you know. I have this idea at thirty years ago and that happens all the time. The the differences in execution. I mean you know I had an idea for an ear reader back when I was traveling internationally and carried five books because I read so fast and Michael. It'd be really nice to have this on a tablet. I didn't create kindle are INCRI readers but so execution has all of it. So that's what we focus on here is. How do we activate good ideas? Because you've got this sign on the wall I it's the get shit done. That's right that is our mantra. It's like you can sit around talk about it and think about it but nothing happens until you actually execute on it and you can execute badly which is still a blessing. Then you learn and you kind of move fail fast fail fast. Learn Pivot repeat excellent so the first spruyt group were faculty from the university. The other one. We've also got students so oftentimes for students. It's more of a learning experience so it's part of their curriculum more. It's just part of their whole college experience Many students who start companies in college won't actually continue continuing with the same company when they get out but you you're creating a mindset and that's what's really important is you're you're teaching them to possibility thinkers and to be able to realize that they can affect change in the world. And that's really what that's about what the students and some of them do go on continue their companies and build into successful companies. I'm squarespace is a great example of one that came out of the University of Maryland Student Company And so yeah so we try to kind of foster that and and we want the cross pollination within alumni who have started built successful companies or folks from the community that have been successful entrepreneurs. We WanNA bring them in. Get them in touch with these. You know kind of emerging urging entrepreneurs and see how we can help cross pollinate and affect each other. Yeah because The AD that comes to mind is Reese's peanut butter cups got got your chocolate in my peanut butter and peanut butter because it's amazing. They are that different. Some excites me is when you take someone comes from one discipline chemistry and they go into management and they go well when you have a catalyst. This happens in chemistry. Why don't we do that with human beings? We Cross Paul all the news and you extend that sometimes stagnant industry much further. True innovation requires diversity of thought and perspective You can't can't saw I think it's one of my favorite Einstein. Coach can't solve the problem from the context in which it was created. Yes so you need people and so we do a lot of And some of our innovation Shen catalysts whom you met earlier students that we pay as interns to be here and they help us with some administrative work but they're working on projects they're actually involved in our ecosystem and so so But but we know that just them seeing some of that is really crucial absolutely so the two groups students and Faculty Faculty Primary Yep. Those are our primary customers one of the things that gets in the way of US becoming awesome is ourselves. Oh always Julie as you get professors coming in here. Sometimes they really have an idea locked into their head. which is you know this is my baby is beautiful? This'll we're going to do with your experience. Sometimes you know that's not the right path to go what techniques do you use to get them to see. The light released be open to the possibility so a lot of times like anyone you have to let them fail a little bit before they realize and so they have to struggle kind of like raising children. Right you gotta let them do it on their own. You GotTa Lotta Struggle and then you you can come in and say well so let me explain to you how you can fix this or how you can do this differently. So we've had A faculty member WHO Had One of his investors wanted to come on on board and be a team member wanted. You know a significant portion of equity and it didn't turn out well and then He realized that he doesn't know. Know How all this business stuff works. we had another one who's Brilliant researcher was able to you know was having trouble raising money Because he needed a CEO but then finally he was able to raise because of the technology a large chunk of money but part of the caveat was that he had to find a CEO And so the way. Hey I explain it is that You know it's not starting a business isn't rocket science but a rocket scientist doesn't know how to do it which is perfectly true to hear something that it happens quite often that you've got a venture capitalist that's investing in a company and they say you need a CEO to come in which is absolutely true right but here's how it can go go sideways that Co that comes in has a team. They've worked in the past -solutely they take a culture that's already exists. That may be good or bad or in the middle within the force another culture upon it absolutely and so that can go sideways to guard against that. Or how do we can't I mean it's We can educate indicate our faculty On how to you know you know what their role is. But they're you know they've never done business before they're really the scientists And so we try to protect him in our licenses. Such that If the company gets a license that that and the company goes in one direction that there's maybe a way that the intellectual property can come back or they can carve out another piece or another Field of use for the intellectual property. So they can create another company around the technology but in a different field so we look for ways to try and protect them. But but it doesn't always work. I mean I think one of the companies was in the news. Recently Was One of our companies that the The founding I P the researcher was forced out and then the company went bankrupt and So he lost all of his equity in the company. Okay and did you lose the IP as well so the university is No because the university owned okay so we that's our job is to try and sometimes it's protect them from themselves. Nice we were you when my hero Yeah just love was giving the rights to his invention invention to Westinghouse to save them those wondering. Why don't you ask? The stock. Wouldn't cost them anything new. They don't always know. Yeah yeah they don't always know so one of the things that it was kind of interesting about Tesla if you believe it is of course. He was buddies with Mark Twain and he used his coil to also generate xrays. Sue took an X-ray of Mark Twain. which is to be one of the first xrays ever taken interesting? Well you know an interesting thing about intellectual property if you read the history the One of my favorite books is Peter. Drucker innovation and Entrepreneurship Mariel Book. We talked about Thomas. Edison Thomas Edison created a light bulb. But he didn't create the commercial lightbulb. Hold that went to market. He actually license someone else's patent what he did is he created the system of delivery electricity. Yes and then he license somebody else's patent which was a better technology so It's one of the things that you also have to educate These professors honest that. It's not always the best technology that wins just because your widget may be better than the next one doesn't gene at. That's going to be a commercial business success before we went on air. You were chatting about your daughter. How many children do you have two daughters as they move into the world? What three pieces of of advice would you give them to allow them to be happy? And successful So one is the you can't you can't always control what happens to you but you can control how you you react to it and how you respond to it and so maintaining that Sense of agency Self Agency knowing that you you can control you you and that's about the only thing in the world that you can actually control And so so use that power. Don't ever give away your power of controlling your life and and I used to speak on this actually quite a bit before I came to the university about How we give away our power all the time to other people And so that would be one is You know maintain your agency maintain your sense of patrol. Choose how you respond to the things that happened to you The second thing would be Follow the thread. You know When opportunities -tunities come to you sometimes unexpectedly or when somebody says? Oh you really should talk to this person. Follow that it might not lead where you know. They think it was gonNA lead when they made the introduction. It might not lead anywhere but you might learn something and Tend you ten years down the road they might remember you and opportunity comes up. And that's exactly how he ended up working in the Obama Administration. Is that someone that I had met. Ten years ago. That was following a grant that I a program that I was on that I had you know. She was following my career when the secretary of Commerce called.
Rhinos and Their Gamekeepers Benefit From A.I.
"This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Steve Mirsky so what is the connection between A._I.. And Renat Sarai surprisingly direct Bernard May Orson chief innovation officer at I._B._M.. A._M. he spoke recently at the Cooper Union here New York City as part of a panel discussing the intersection of artificial intelligence A._I.. Ethics and healthcare so where two rhinos come in as you know poaching rhinos is a huge problem. The ranas were sworn represents about thirty years of revenue thirty years of income to an individual in sub Saharan Africa and that is why basically if you manage to kill a rhino and get a horn the represent essentially it's like winning the lottery. Unfortunately it's not so good for the Rhino not to mention you deplete a precious species yet again and poaching as a huge issue what people don't know about a thousand Gamekeepers U._N.. Kept numbers life in two thousand fourteen have been murdered by poachers. In order to get at the animals being protected this is about humans well. How do you basically protect rhinos with a I know it's a good question? Somebody said you know being a kid who grew up in the Bronx Smyth. Oh as well you know you put a collar on the Rhino on analyze is where they are their travel patterns and the guy who ran the reserve in South Africa sort of laugh said this does not help. That's the WILGA Vanden Game Reserve back to Meyerson I said why is this well. You know with a rhino stops moving. You'll know it was dead. That's certainly not helpful. Obviously you have a better idea says yeah what you do is get a bunch of animals that are easily spooked like gazelles antelope that sort of thing and what you do is you collar them and you look at that and we thought about it so you know that's brilliant because they become sentinels else because you see when a poacher enters area that it will encounter these creatures. It's not going to encounter rhinos there by far more rare when in encounters the creatures like any other animal they spook and run where does they. I come in well. It turns out when you have these collars on them. They're really a bunch of reasons. These animals run they migrate some Leopard is trying to make lunch out of it and yes. They're spooked by you know somebody who's coming entering in a truck to go poach you have to know Oh the difference and it turns out by looking at the pattern of movements and looking at historic data we rebelled. Tell the difference between each of that using system that essentially employed machine learning to separate yep these are incidences where were running into poachers. So these incidences where actually just you know there's a lion trying to make lunch out of this parental. The bottom line is by doing that. We were able to spot the poachers when they were nowhere. Near the preserve much less on the preserve of the rhinos are and this avoids. This is the kind of conflict where people ended up dead in large numbers not just the rhinos it basically I'd is nobody dies. You don't want the poachers today. They are desperate. You don't want the rhinos to be killed. We lose this species and of course the people who are incredibly brave protecting these animals. It really was an amazing thing to us because at the end of the day it worked and that's the kind of thing where you know A._I.. You sensibly as value that no human could possibly have achieved. It's not just about healthcare where.
"chief innovation officer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"I am being going by Vincent Morella. Bloomberg F X strategist, we are sitting here in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studios, talking about a conundrum that we face, which is we talk about all of the advancements in technology, but they all are predicated on a better grid on a better system of backdrop to enable high speed communication and connect joining us now to discuss this sort of relationship is Dr guide Dietrich he has chief innovation officer at Cisco based in Austin, Texas, Dr Dietrich, thanks so much for being with us, can you? I just give a sense of exactly this the necessity for there to be a five G grid or some kind of upgraded grid in order to enable some of the. Developments that you are working on. Absolutely. And thank you for having me. Stein. Jeez. Critical because we're going to be going from seventeen billion connected things to five hundred billion connected things around the world between now and twenty thirty before it was about connecting people. And now, it's connecting things. And we've got to have that that speed and a new experienced that five G is going to be able to provide in order to handle all of this new data and all of these new connections moving forward. Talk about things being connected is is this the Demane strategy now artificial intelligence moving into that area. Where? Relatively little human interaction and things kind of just do their thing. I think that human interaction is always going to be critical. But at the same time, they're going to be things such as self driving cars, right? The autonomous vehicles smart buildings smart cities, new quality of life experiences being able to connect people in the far reaches of countries in rural environments too to quality healthcare for the first time, in some cases, providing access to education, it's not just about a I it's about connecting people for the first time in many cases to to to first quality, healthcare and education and other services guy. Your title chief innovation officer. What do you do do you sit around room and just sort of? Innovate. Great question. I doubt they pay me just to do that. I actually ran a program called country digital acceleration or CD. A it's a program that's been around now for about four years, and we recognized the country leaders global leaders were coming out with these very aggressive national digital agenda's announcing a much fanfare, but then they really wouldn't go anywhere. And it's because there was no execution plan. So Cisco stepped in we developed a process whereby we could extract the most valuable pieces of that national digital agenda the things that are really going to impact the country such as GDP growth jobs creation and innovation and we help them get to that value. Faster. You know, Cisco has obviously its own products and services, but we also have sixty thousand partner companies and their products and services that we can bring to bear. And so we we help them get to the value of digitisation faster in terms of their government services education health care cybersecurity infrastructure in the like, you mentioned Australia United States held. How are we doing here? How will we matching up? What what innovations can we look forward to? Well, the the United States was a slow starter to be honest. Most of these countries have very explicit and aggressive national digital agenda's as I say, we're working with twenty five different countries around the world right now. But the US were working with the states because you know, the states have division right now in the states have have the agendas themselves to to execute. Against and so we started in Michigan. Nah. And we've made some investments in Massachusetts. Also now looking at Texas and Florida and several other states. How does the investment the sort of private public partnership work because Cisco is partnering with the governments to get these grids up and running is that a complicated kind of financial relationship. It really isn't. And and the reason is because first of all public private partnerships are going to you know, they've been around for a long time, and they're going to remain to be sort of the standard bearer of how things get done because you can't accomplish a city digital project or or a state or national digitisation project without involving government industry. And academia, we have found that now across the twenty-five countries that we work with that.
