ANALYSIS: So You Wanna Be New York City Mayor, Huh?
"How Do you see? Large democratic mayor of field shaping up in general. So far, it is kind of overwhelming for people to get their minds around such a long list. I said We were gonna go down through the list, and this isn't even gonna be Complete list. We've begun having the candidates on the show already, and I keep saying to the listeners this June primary is going to come up on people faster than you realize. But my goodness the field is so crowded. With Eric Adams in Scott Stringer and Maya Wiley and Shaun Donovan and Kathryn Garcia and Ray Maguire and Carlos Man, Chaka and Diane Diane. Morale is and Laurie sudden. And that's an incomplete list. And now we're here. Max Rose and Andrew Gang may both be getting in are their lanes in this race like we used to say in the presidential primary, the conservative rain laying the progressive lane or how can a voter who isn't a political science professor like you begin to sort this out for themselves? Right. I mean, in some ways, it's both overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time. I mean, sadly, so many voters can't really fully focus Brian on local elections, just Jack because we haven't gotten past January, 20th And especially for voters of color, Knowing what the president has has said the types of people he supported his members of his own party, essentially trying to actively create a coup within American democracy. It's a very unsettling political moment, and a lot of folks can't really focus. Fully on a local election until there is a peaceful transition of power, which quite honestly is not guaranteed at this moment. And so once we get past January 20th it's a 2 p.m.. Then I think that there's a sigh of relief when we can start looking at. Okay. Well, who are who are the millionaires? Who were, you know, sort of waking up in the morning, saying I should be a leader? That's one bucket. Who were the folks who were currently unemployed and need a job. So hey, I should run for mayor too. That's another bucket. Who were the progressive folks who have interesting ideas for New York in some sort of some sort of managerial experience, but no previous electoral experience. That's another bucket. Then you have sort of the you know the politicians who have been elected to office once or quite a few times, and they want to expand that sort of leadership style. In a city that might be looking for something totally different. And so we have minimum four buckets. Obviously, there's descriptive politics. Some people think it's far time that New York City has female leadership. Some people want to make sure that there's leadership of color, whether it's another black mayor, Post Dinkins or if we should have someone from the Latin next community, and so there's lots of different angles. I think right now because it's so crowded. It's hard to Even hear what people actually saying. But also that's on the candidates, because because of rank choice voting, many people are reticent to attack their opponents. They're reticent to say any big, bold ideas. It's kind of a milk toast election as a as of now, that's not garnering any attention. From the vast majority of New Yorkers. And we know that municipal elections in New York City have have abysmal, embarrassingly low turnout for someone who will not only be the leader of New York but political figure on a national even international scale. Can I just? Yeah, e You want to say something really quickly about Henry's point about 1993 moving forward with crime. I think we need to back up just four more years and think about the Dinkins years and what Mayor Dinkins was was successful and trying to re imagine the police department in a more community policing way, and we have to be honest about the amount of money we pay out as citizens. For bad behavior of the NYPD and how bad officers are continuously protected on considered, I would say, terrorized particular communities, and the fiscal implications of that bad behavior, you know, goes beyond just training. It is a fundamental re imagining that mayoral candidates must talk about because there's something going on that Justin The top brass leadership. But there's some sort of corrosion throughout particular departments in the city that needs to be rooted out in a real substantive way that we just have never seen before. Well,

David Dinkins, New York City’s Only Black Mayor, Dead At 93
"New York City Mayor David Dinkins has died. He was New York City's first black mayor. Mr Dinkins passed away Monday at his home in New York of apparent natural causes. He died less than two months after his wife, Joyce had passed away. Dinkins beat long time Mayor Ed Koch. How am I done them all right down. In 1989, but then lost after his first term, too. Rudy Giuliani in 1993. He won the 89 election. With a pledge for racial healing. He was passionate about equality, saying he was the mayor of a very He was the mayor of every New Yorker, adding We are all foot soldiers in the march to freedom. The former mayor referred to The people of his fair city as a gorgeous mosaic. He worked hard to camp down the racial tensions in New York City, especially in multicultural neighborhoods.

"Oh bits on public figures and given my age, confident that they have one on me. And the opening graph will read. David and Dinkins born July 10th 1927 and Trenton, New Jersey, First Black mayor of the city of New York. And then immediately Crown heights and they're not after talk about the fact that we kept libraries open six days a week. When we had little money spent $47 million to do so. When that had not occurred in a quarter century. And that would be mention of Crown nights. So Mayor Dinkins here in 2000, and just for the record, he predicted in that answer what the first graph of his New York Times over it would be 11 years ago. Well, here it is. Mr. Dickens, who served in the early 19 nineties, was seen as a compromise selection for voters weary of racial unrest, crime and fiscal turmoil, The racial harmony, he saw it Remained elusive during his years in office s O that Z. That's the beginning of that. That's actually sort of the subhead so I'll go to the actual first paragraph. David N. Dinkins, Barbara son, who became New York City first black mayor on the wings of racial harmony, but who was turned out by voters after one term over his handling of racial violence in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. So Dickens predicted correctly, died on Monday night at his home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He was 93. If we're gonna think about Mayor Dinkins place in history, it helps to step back and remember the big picture of the city and the country in those days that in certain ways lead right to where we are Today, Crime was high. But it had been going up for decades. It had gone up and up and up on Mayor Ed Koch is watch for three terms as it had in cities around the country, and yet people didn't hold him personally responsible for it. In the way I believe they held Mayor Dinkins for it. Perhaps because of his race. Dinkins inherited that crime rate and became the first of three mayors to hire William Bratton to be a police leader and crime started to go down on Dinkins Watch. Racial tensions were also high. Of course, Ed Koch Like Giuliani, later and again, this puts salt gets put so much on Dinkins. And some of these stories. Um, but Koch like Giuliani after Dinkins was a very polarizing figure along racial lines, especially in his later years as mayor, he had had a lot of black support. As Mayor Dinkins were called in that clip, but he had lost much of it. And the city in the country were both in a big recession. Mayor Dinkins in that clip refers to expanding the library hours despite the city's budget woes of the time. And that was true nationally to the budget woes. Remember Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign mantra, which exists to this day, people cite him saying, It's the economy stupid. Because it was a very down economy nationally at the end of the 80 started the nineties. And a high crime period nationally, and voters took it out on George H. W. Bush when he became a one term president and got defeated in 92. And on David Dinkins when he got to feed it and became a one term mayor. In 93. Then came the federal crime bill. 94 that we're still debating today as the federal government driver of mass incarceration. Exactly is Giuliani was starting out as mayor centering his get tough on crime policies. And meanwhile, the economic rebound was taking place in both places as well nationally as the cycle kicked back up and in New York, so one way to look at that period is Dinkins and the first President Bush. Got blamed both of them for national trends, even though they were from different parties. Clinton and Giuliani got credit for the rebound, even though they were and of course, more complicated than that, too. But that's one take On David Dinkins mayor lt in context. Now tomorrow, folks will do a deeper remembrance of Mayor David Dinkins. We're calling up some people who we think will be worthy guests and we'll do a major segment that we can put together better on a day's notice. So for today. Those clips and those thoughts and Mayor David Dinkins rest in peace. Throughout 2020 w. N. Y. C.

"O. R. Way. Get lunch to get here today, we'll get the Biden If there is such a thing we Biden administration looks like it's gonna really spit in the face of the progressives and load themselves up with some old bureaucrat hacks will get to the Governor Governor Cuomo and his crazy Thanksgiving plans. Get the Mayor Dinkins. What a wonderful guy, Joe Barley. You must have known Mayor Dinkins. Nice man. Very nice gentleman. Yes. No nicer man than him. You could say. Well, I don't think it was the best mayor, but that, Okay, But what a great great guy. Yeah, There's some good things. This mayor he brought in Ray Kelly, that zoo police commissioner he brought about the tennis. U. S Open remained here and built that beautiful stadium and he was the nicest man in real life. Well, we'll talk about him a little later on. So if you were a O see if you were a progressive What would you have been thinking when Biden seemed to win? We don't still enough. He's one. But if he has one What would you be thinking? You'd be thinking. Wow. You know, a little sea thinking. Maybe there's a Cabinet post for me. Wouldn't wouldn't you assume they're all thinking that I would have thought he least put one of them in there? Yeah. Elizabeth Warren was thinking. Do I want Treasury or maybe commerce? They're all all these. Bernie is thinking, Remember, they were asking him. I will You accept Secretary of Labor. Well, think of it now. Turns out just ready. These people he is bringing in the worst hacks. I shouldn't say that. They're actually some of the best tax in Washington. But these air the most mediocre bureaucrats is Tony Blinken is a perfect example of a real swamp creature too sharp looking guy. Impressive in a room. He's like a young John Kerry with the nice pinstripe suit speaks in all this flowery language. Meantime, behind the scenes, he's a bureaucrat but a real hustler. He could give the Clintons lessons in how to profiteer and cash in on office. He's been in and out of government. Whatever he's out of government, he sets up one of those Uh, companies where you know you could be a client and they'll advise you. They'll give you global advice. What it really means is you write the massive checks every month, and they were paying for influence that make phone calls for you. They got all the politicians in their pocket. They're on. They make deals for you. So this this is a Tony Blinken real swamp creature, but again, like Carrie. Been in every government job. He was the number two guys State Department for years but never accomplished anything. It's like one of these managers. You know these baseball managers, they managed Cleveland they managed, you know, alot these third rate teams they I've been around the country that managed a bunch of them. But if you look at their record, it was always like 50 and 50. There did very well you know, I'm talking about. Oh, yeah. You know, if you're in New York, the Yankees always got a top guy. But if you're one of the smaller teams always get a guy just came from the other team where he was 72 71 of his best season ever. So that's Tony Blinken. Useless guy. Sounds good, simply Ron claim if you watch him on meet the press, or the Sunday shows a very good speaker, will you see, it seems, were row sharp guys. Meantime, lifelong bureaucrat never got anything done Now, John Kerry looks like a silly, foolish old man. Now, with the Spandex purple bike suit on, you know, 78 year old guy riding a bike. You look silly, but in his younger days he was serving dashing guy. That was where the dark pinstripe suit. And he'd be on the Sunday shows and he'd speak beautifully. Well in regards to that we must have always remember it would sound impressive, but he never got anything done in all his years in Congress was useless. As Secretary of State, you could actually argue bad as Secretary of State signed the Aran deal, which is probably the single worst agreement ever. If you look, If you really look through that Iran deal, it's unbelievable that anybody in their right mind would sign it, But it's a Democratic swamp thing. It's just go for the symbolism. Come back with a big signed agreement. Looks like you've made some sort of great agreement but actually read the thing. First the nuclear plants and facilities, Aran I gotta get came up Water system to come up with Iran will self inspect and let us know if they found anything, boy. He really negotiating hard on that one. I bet. Yeah. Yeah, they'll self inspect to make sure they're not doing the and I supposed to do and they'll let us know if they found any. They got a part of agreement is we can inspect if we insist, but we have to give them 30 days notice before inspection. So this idiot signed this thing. So, uh, I guess. Why not a Cabinet post secretary of state secretaries. He I guess they didn't really want to do that with him, so they made up a title form. He'll be the climate change czar. This is a guy with six houses 14 cars. This is a guy with two yachts a private yet he's now in charge of telling you to take the bus so you can conserve you. Take the bus buddy. He's got Uh, he's just a ridiculous figure. Howie Carr will be with us later. The reason when I have him on he is the John Kerry expert in the world He's been covering John Kerry for like 30 years will tell you some real, You'll laugh at some of these John Kerry stories. So this is the problem is bringing back every befo own bureaucrat every hack. I also remember Carrie and Biden are very close, and John Kerry son is partners. With Hunter Biden in some of those businesses that China made up hedge fund. Whatever that deal was Hunter. Biden was a partner with John Kerry's son, Chris Heinz in all of that, so there's a deep connection between the two. So that's why they give him something. Bindle Do is first interview. Well, you'll see it tonight. Hard hitting interviews. Lester Holt hard hitting interview, Lester will be asking the real tough questions. How does it feel? Hmm. What did you think?.

"No Giuliani of those days silence to the booze and gave a gracious concession And in a loud and angry time, David Dinkins was quiet and dignified. Wilbur Rich wrote a book on him. A lot of people thought that something was gonna happen that was revolutionary. But he reassured them that he was not that type of person that he was really He was not the mayor of black people. And in New York he was the mayor of everybody. Think it's called his diverse city a gorgeous mosaic. He oversaw the start of the revival of Times Square. The city remained divided later, admitting he should have moved sooner to a stop a riot in 1991. Certainly I would have insisted sooner. In Crown Heights that the police did a better job. Would not have tolerated that as long as I did, then conserved only one term, Giuliani ran again and defeated him in a divisive campaign in 1993. Afterward, Dinkins had advice to aspiring black politicians. You need to be appropriately motivated.

He took office at a time when the city face to soaring murder rate and stubborn unemployment and helped bring the 1992 Democratic National Convention to New York. His calm demeanor was a dramatic shift from both his predecessor, Adcox and Koch. Excuse me and his successor, Rudy Giuliani, But critics disliked his considered approach and he faced accusations.

Which college produces the best NFL talent?
"A special edition of N._F._l.. Live on deck today at the N._F._l.. Celebrates one hundred season just six weeks away however we are just five weeks away in college. Football Opens It one hundred fiftieth the anniversary so today welcome N._F._l.. You were combining the two worlds to answer age-old question what college produces the best n._F._l.. Talent however I'm Wendy net sand Hutus here you know what's better to be on this panel our expert notice icy expert telling me when Lewis Minute of her panter on the list not on the House for back the quarterback guru he and his brother in a lot of N._F._l.. Games James A lot and Ryan Clark. You see the L. L._S._U.. They are ills college football. L. Is Jonathan Vilma bike. He will join US shortly. He happened to win a National Championship and Oh by the way a super bowl as well coming up on N._F._l.. Live will break down position by position which college produces the best quarterback Oklahoma has the number one overall pick the last two years we have the top ten plays all the N._F._l.. Superstars when they were in college and answering big question which school produces the best all time N._F._l.. Talent we had to ask the players themselves to kick things off. We're the first pick quarterback Oklahoma Viva say Oklahoma Alabama Clemson because proven it is one atop factory the Ohio state highest in Alabama. 'cause I never lost beat out. You really can't understand it into your inside. Sadness programming is all about the you for N._F._l.. Because of Georgia in every aspect but I think L._S._U.. CRESA environment of gray competition and guys is trying to feed off of IT University of Pittsburgh. You Got Dorset. Dan Marina you got Larry. Fitzgerald was not a me show. It's about having everybody involved in working for the Sandal clumps in would cushman he's been doing. He's making people believe everything is possible for House is the best our stop it. Stop stuff well. Let's start shall we with the most players from each college currently in the N._F._l.. Alabama leads the way with V with sixty five players players followed by Ohio state in second place with fifty eight so we're going to debate these schools I in terms of who is best at producing N._F._l.. Challenge here's a tale of the tape on Alabama at Ohio state success since the two thousand draft folks tools I have had thirty one first round picks the most of any school while the Buckeyes have thirteen more total picks in the last twenty drafts but Bama's players have been slightly more successful in the league producing three more pro bowlers than Ohio St Louis Rick. Let's start with with the crimson tide. They're starting eleven if you will offense and defense current N._F._l.. Talent there's any question that these are both very impressive lineups that if Alabama can roll these teams out there right now now. I think they'd win a few games without a doubt. If you look at the offense aside outside of the ball the first thing that jumps out of these starting eleven are the two wide receivers look Julio. Jones is one of the finest athletes in the N._F._l.. For guardless of position he's in the news right now because he's about to get a new contract extension and he's really one of the he's one of the transcendent players at the position that this game the scene Amari Cooper the same way. When Amari came out of college? I remember doing his tape in thinking point honestly as far as catching one pet and run wide receiver. I hadn't seen one as good as him as him. In a long long time on the defensive side look they have fine players throughout the eleven here really that when you get to the secondary and you guys like Eddie Jackson Landon Collins I mean these guys are disband tastic players on the front dont`a hightower our multiple time superbowl winner. These are great great players right here. Make our way to Columbus shower of the to Ohio state you go to the offense side of the football. Look the first thing that jumps out without a doubt as Ezekiel Elliott because if he's not the best running back in the N._F._l.. He would be considered a top three running back in the N._F._l.. Wide Receiver Michael Thomas Really someone who was unheralded coming out of college. He's a tremendous tremendous. Pro will probably be the highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. In short time then move over to the defensive side of the ball this this is where really this football team really kind of jumps off the board starting up Front Joey Bosa Cam Hayward those are two of the best defense alignment in the N._F._l.. Right now and then when you look down there at the Secondary Malcolm Dyson Dinkins Denzel Ward Marshon Lattimore doesn't let's get much better than that. All right Jonathan Vilma made his way again surly qualified to weigh in on this discussion. Look I mean there's a shortage of talent with either of these squads. It's almost ridiculous factory and a lot of ways both of these institutions but let the debate again a Ryan Clark. You can't pick L._S._U.. Just yet but when you look at this group what stands out L._S._U.'s better than both of these things we're gonNA get to that. We're supposed to be talking outlets. Let's be honest. There's amazing players. Neither one of them have a quarterback right before proven yet though little I mean why don't we always have to see something first before we can get you well Ray Richardson running back right you saw God compare that with you why time gentlemen we're GonNa play Nice Got Ninety minutes ago. You're the Glenn Difference from every other position that we're looking at okay fair enough now back to you Louis. It is a production results oriented industry. Is it not so it is fair to say seeing something. Does one believe they'll be success won't sure but I mean we're we'll see this is kind of like a combination of what they have done in college. What some of these guys have done in the pros in some of it's a little bit of projecting about what they're gonNA continue to do in the pros? That's how I'm going to expand it to that all right so at quarterback quarterback Dwayne Haskins I believe right now. There's no comparison as far as I don't care what A._J.. McCarron did it Alabama cows tape. Those Wayne has close exact Haskins is going to be a fine football player. What's going to happen to him? Really is going to be more predicated on what Washington redskins overall due to him then what he does to himself. I firmly believe that as far as these rousers overall look the wide receiver position Julio Jones Amari Cooper. Julio Jones's the standard if you go and look N._F._l.. For an offices and look in their scouting books books every team has a standard at every position that they put for scouts the suit for as far as whenever when their scouting people polio is going to be on that list for for many many teams he's about as good as it gets so skill positions at Alabama are awesome. The defensive players at Ohio State is what stands out for me as far as their front seven is concerned particularly their defensive line and their secondary Denzel Award Marshon Lattimore. You tell me a team that wouldn't take those two young men right now and startled. Let me ask you a specific question since you spend some time as an analyst watching these players at the collegiate level if you had to choose either of this group Alabama Ohio state who's players really got better or who took a bigger step forward than you anticipated when they got to the N._F._l.. Out To you to dance your last part no neither standout. They're pretty equal because watching these guys watching Jonathan Allen he played okay well Dante. I'll tell you knew who is going to be tremendous player defensive player C._J.. Moseley's same thing and then you go to the other side and you look at Joey Bosa Nick Bosa Darren like Malcolm Jenkins. I play with Malcolm Jenkins in in New Orleans knew he was going to be a study. He's Philistine but what is surprising how fast or House they defense is. I did not realize how fast defensive you think big ten you didn't big Brawley guys not so fast but these guys can move joey. Bosa also can move nick volks in Darren League. We know the Burner Malcolm J. Denzel War March. I mean that is a very very talented athletic fast fast defense. I thought I was going to jump in your rookie. I think that's a great question Wendy about as far as what teams teams have players that have gotten better pros. You look at Ohio state this look at their offense. In particular Michael. Thomas was a good wide receiver to hire Stayton. He's fantastic now. He's GonNa be highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. Andrew Norwell most people wouldn't even know Andrew Norwell well what from Andrew Doorbell he right now just judge Moore Norwell can't open open some N._F._l.. Spectacular and even on the defensive side of the ball. I didn't think Marshon lattimore. I've liked Marshon Lattimore at Ohio state. I didn't love Marcet. He has taken his game to another level as well in the really own Alabama side you know how I feel about Alabama I feel nick and what he does and how he builds his program but really focus on their offense align that was just look okay and think about that question. Wendy Wendy asked how many players have gotten better how many have continued to improve Andre Smith may have his best days at Alabama. Dame's carpenter has really been good pro Brian Kelly the jury still out he could be a he's a good player. He's GonNa play already in Indianapolis D._J.. fluker was he ever ever really that guy that dominant guy no. He hasn't been Cam Robinson. Have you seen story so it's interesting because they're preventing people have been many people who've hit Alabama and said they get the best out of their players at Alabama. Maybe it's good discussion legal where people go by what teams there drafted so we look at Michael Thomas he falls into a place where he needs an accurate passer and he's one of the most accurate passers all the time also about the place you land in ashore and how they develop you ask Josh Rosen he absolutely he knows that all too well. I ten Hasselbeck. The whole point of this is to pick one of our producers here a little bit we talked. I'm going Alabama mainly change quarterbacks. Yeah I think looks great point about the offensive line at Alabama because so many of them when you look at them just in terms of body type you're like Oh my God look at those guys body type wise but like I don't know that some of those guys have come in and be like Oh and they got a whole lot better. We're obviously splitting hairs here on this ongoing Alabama Lewis Sorry Nick. Oh from a hustle change your mind or did you stick the way said one because I don't care if between Haskins hasn't played. I think he's I think he's in the saints. Stratosphere is A._J.. McCarron so I like that I liked it their offense of line one of the things that talked about how they develop those guys on the defense aside but they're fun four plus their secondary this going with them Ryan Clark you have to pick one while I was brought here for one reason in one reason only when the Knicks because everyone knew it my answers it would be and what Tim Hasselbeck has proven is. You don't need a quarterback. That's really he's GonNa be Ohio state in Alabama that don't have quarterbacks guess what we don't need a quarterback back and by the way you don't want our first off was good enough for Bill Belichick your boy to draft him as Tom Brady's heir-apparent draft. We thought they they went to L._S._U.. Because this guy has what they decided to we throwing the ball all around the field Andrew Whitworth he's played a thousand years. There's a Guy Jerry go look at the Neil hundred may has like negative two percent body fat Michael Broncos out. There aren't key. We gotta wait on them but it's are are you at the back of position. That's all we got mad. I gotTa get here all even have to work conviction when you spoke scissors. I'm sorry I just so tim. I love your twenty. Two question your toughness Whoa West I've seen because as you know what fair enough he's at Alabama alum landon dare you wait into the circus that we've created. But what do you have to say about this. Whole debate ain't Ryan got some good good good stuff going on say? I wouldn't question his toughness at all. I don't know why you questioned Ryan toughness. I saw him not got a lot of Alabama's always number one no matter Corolla tyrod. Let me ask you a serious question. You know obviously nick. Sabin is a hall of Famer one of the best ever coach this game but specifically what does he do that has allowed such historic success at the university. Steve Alabama <hes> as a coach he speaks for as a coach. He represents his players as players coach. I would say he makes all this coach. All the players are on the him as a player as a father <hes> <hes> and as a as many tried to teach us they'd be a man and a great play all at one time you know so he does it all leading. Can you please tell the people why you are now better that you have trusted your career training with the guy from L._S._U.. Hey right you agreed trying to grow been gone on gone for years

"To who to hire. The problem is we often forget that it relies on existing information. And it's shaped by the strengths and limitations of the people building it, and that's about where my understanding of AI starts and stops. I know is going to dramatically change our lives. And I know it's far from perfect, but that's it. So I reached out to some experts to learn more about a I and what it means for us. And spoiler alert. The stakes are higher much higher than I thought. I'm here with Meredith Broussard, a data journalist, author of artificial unintelligent how computers misunderstand the world assistant, professor at the Arthur l Carter journalism institute at NYU and in affiliate faculty member at the NYU center for data science. Welcome meredith. Thank you for having mates pleasure to be here. Also sitting down with ready yet. Obey a PHD student in the department of computer science at Cornell University and co founder of two groups mechanisms designed for social good and blackened AI she received both the Google generation scholarship, and as a Facebook, fellow thank you for joining us. Thank you for having made scrapie here and last, but certainly not least Stephanie Dinkins a transdisciplinary artist focused on artificial intelligence as it intersects with race and gender. Stephanie is also an associate professor of art Stony Brook university. Welcome. Thank you. It's great to be here. So ladies, let's start with the basics. How does artificial intelligence work? What is artificial intelligence? I'll be happy to take that one. We talk a lot about a I, but many many of us are unsure what it actually means. And how it really works. The easiest way to think about it is the artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science the same way that algebra is a branch of mathematics. And when people say a now, it is usually what they mean is machine learning and machine learning is a sub field of artificial intelligence. Now, there are other sub fields like expert systems are natural language processing, but machine learning is the one that's most popular right now. And so that's generally what people mean, and then another important distinction to keep in mind is what's real and what's imaginary about AI? So probably when you think about artificial intelligence Hollywood. Image pops into your mind. Like, maybe think about Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator. Maybe think about that movie X Makina, or maybe you think about like killer robots and stock art robot guy who you see on the internet. Right. But those things are purely imaginary, right? There are no robots who are going to over the world. Even though it's so fun to think about what we actually have. What's real about? A I is a is math. It's really really, gorgeous and complicated. Math. So radiate, can you unpack a little bit? What are some very specific examples in our everyday lives of when we interact with AI. There are so many examples, and I'm really glad that we've already narrowed in on the every day. I am the sort of Hollywood. I'm watching a movie and thinking about things that are fun to think about that..

"Coaches who need to deliver this year. He's here later in the hour. The new marketing agreement between Nike and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of kneeling during the national anthem has generated a lot of negative feedback on social media that can we better handle opposing views on places like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram when it comes to serious social issues analysis now from Stephen Dinkins, president of the national conflict resolution center, he's a train mediator whose organization runs police citizen trainings geared toward improving communication between law enforcement and communities as well as campus civility initiatives, teaching students how to effectively dialogue about these hot button issues. Stephen, how do you see this? It's a reflection of what we're seeing in in society today in terms of the divisiveness that ad like that is creating. So wasn't surprising. That Nike would take this issue and and run with it. I mean they've done that historically with. Other key social issues. So Nike explain how this might go down there in a war room perhaps headquarters and weighing all the pros and cons knowing that there's gonna be some backlash, but they feel that in the end this will work out in their favor financially. I guess I'm not. Certain of their thinking in terms of their strategy. But I know historically, they've picked up on issues in terms of women's rights and sports and issues around HIV and aids in so periodically they seize upon a key social issue, and they run at campaigns. And and you know, obviously, they see that as an advantage of for their company. I know they feel that millennials are the target audience in that group of young adults today expects companies to take positions on social issues. Right. I think increasingly we're seeing companies that are taking a stand several months ago with Starbucks and what they did. With regard to you know, taking a very public stand training all their workforce around issues of inclusivity. I think that's another strong exam. Title of of companies that are really entering into these major social issues. I mean, they Starbucks was affected directly in their own store. But but still they were taking a very public reaction to the situation. Do you think this helps or hurts Nike? I think time will tell were ready seen. It's it's definitely getting reaction news. It's it's in the news. And some people believe that, you know, whether it's negative press are positive press that any type of press can move a brand for. I mean, obviously, the president of the United States has. You know commented and and so they're getting at least publicity that they're seeking so time will tell whether this would lead to a significant boycott or or perhaps, you know, more purchasing of their shoes. I mean, you know, time will tell speaking with Stephen Duncan. He's the president of the national conflict resolution center. How about the social media backlash that we've seen here? I I think what what strikes me all the time. Is the social media grenades? That are thrown by people hiding behind anonymity. Is that problem, but social media has become oftentimes a weaponized enforce? And I, and I I think is whether it's it's social media or other tools that are being used in present-day society. What were seen as different issues are creating a divided nation and people are forming extreme views based on taking one position or the other. And they're not having a true dialogue to really get to the general understanding of what are some of the key underlying issues of of of concern. And so social media is a perfect example where there is anonymity and then people can throw attacks and and challenge. Others and sometimes in a using language feeling that they have the right to do that. But it it it just fostering, these extreme views, and it it's creating villains in our society. Capper Knicks Bill in the NFL villain Nike's a billion, and it's it's leading to the unfortunate situation where people are defined the issue. Not even what is the true history. It's it it gets lost in in this type of using this type of tool. Steven Steven Dinkins, president of the national conflict resolution center twelve minutes now after the hour on this weekend..
