Why good ideas get trapped in the valley of death -- and how to rescue them | TED-Ed - TEST

"It's ted talks daily. I'm elise hugh. Birthday is thursday april twenty seconds so we thought it would be a great time to share another lesson from our friends at ted. Ed this is part of a video series designed to cut through the complexity around climate change and explain the science in a clear way. It's all inspired by bill. Gates's new book how to avoid a climate disaster. This lesson is about how a lot of the smartest solutions to reduce. Carbon pollution actually already exist and how they're getting stuck in the valley death. How can we get them out of this trap. You can watch all seven lessons for free at ed dot ted dot com slash plan for zero. That's plan f. o. R. zero wants a gourd. Ted talks daily is brought to you by lulu lemon. I am a longtime runner and my attitude about workout clothing is i don't want to have to think about it at all. And that's why. I run in lululemon these days. I work out a lot alone. But i prefer doing it with friends. I have such great memories of really bonding with whoever. I'm running with my friends. They trust lululemon to my running buddy rob whereas the men's lululemon running shirt that comes in short sleeve or long and he says it's so light so dry so breathable. You'll never run in another shirt again. You can get your own shop. The fast and free shirt at lululemon dot com support for ted talks daily comes from odu odors suite of business. Apps has everything you need to run a company. Think of your smartphone with all your apps right at your fingertips odu is just like that for business but instead of an app to order takeout or tell you the weather you have sales inventory accounting and more union the department we've got it covered and they're all connected joined the six million users who stopped wasting time and started getting stuff done go to odu dot com slash ted to start a free trial that's od odio dot com slash ted. They've passed every test cleared every huddled jumped through every hoop now. All that remains is to unleash them on the wait. What's yes there's one more challenge. They must now cross the valley of death. All new products must pass through here before they reach the market. Many never make it out and sometimes that's okay if they don't work don't feel a need all for any number of other reasons but inventions. That could help address massive global issues. Also face this risk that's because technology's potential isn't the only factor that determines whether it will succeed. The valley of death is especially risky for innovations involving complex physical objects as opposed to software and for those in highly regulated industries like medicine building materials and transportation regulations and other obstacles aren't inherently bad. They're often designed to keep people safe but they do tend to scare off investors and that's what traps good ideas in the valley of gaffe that funding dries up before they can become profitable one of the fields where this problem is most pressing. Today is zero carbon technologies that is central to our future because they will help us eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize our climate but they also have features that make them particularly vulnerable in the valley of death. Let's look why that is and how we can change it. All new technologies must go through a development fans before they can become profitable for zero carbon technologies. The costs of this phase are high. The time lines are long and in spite of the good they can do. Demand is often low because they can require big changes in both infrastructure and consumer behavior for example electric heat pumps don't burn fossil fuels and when you factor in savings on energy use off cost competitive with gas furnaces but only change that heating and cooling systems every few decades direct air capture technologies meanwhile remove co two directly from the atmosphere. We need these technologies to reach our emission goals and several of them have already been proven to work but they're at risk of getting trapped in the valley of death because they're expensive. This creates a vicious cycle because the best way to know a costs is by well practicing making more of a product and refining it but high initial costs scare off investors and without their money companies can't continue to develop that technologies and can't ultimately decrease cost. Fortunately there's a way to break this cycle. Governments can help the gap when private investors won't fund technologies with such a high potential for social benefit. This isn't just theoretical. In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s functioning solar panels existed but one widely adopted because of that cost to change this. Germany offered government loans to companies creating soda piles and legally obligated utility companies to buy electricity produced using renewable energy the us and china followed suit by financing major solar panel projects. The cost of solar has dropped almost ninety percent since two thousand nine making it much easier to adopt a similar thing happened for wind energy. During the oil crisis of the nineteen seventies denmark invested in wind power and started taxing winds fossil fuel based competitors other countries took similar steps and as more wind power was generated worldwide. The costs of this technology dropped dramatically. These success stories tell us that government initiatives walk initiatives like boosting spending on research and development offering tax and loan incentives to stops that want to develop zero carbon technologies and consumers who want to buy them and putting a price on carbon emissions. We need governments to do what they did. For solar and wind for many more innovations at the end of the day ideas and inventions alone can't solve our most daunting problems. Policies and markets have to be shaped so the most promising

Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success

"Hi. I'm Elise Hugh. And you're listening to Ted talks daily today's talk features really fascinating research that cuts us all some slack. What I mean is it turns out you can be a late bloomer in your chosen sport or skill or specialty, and it's actually better for you in a lot of ways. The talk is journalist David Epstein at Ted Ex Manchester in twenty twenty. So I'd like to talk about the development of human potential and I'd like to start with maybe the most impactful modern story of development. Many of you here have probably heard of the ten thousand dollars rule maybe you even model your own life after it. Basically, it's the idea that the become great anything takes ten thousand hours of focused practice. So. You'd better get started as early as possible. The poster child for this story is Tiger Woods. Father Famously, gave him a putter when he was seven months old at ten months, he started imitating his father's swing. At to, you can go on Youtube and see him on national television fast forward to the age of twenty one he's the greatest Golfer in the world's quintessential ten thousand dollars story. Another that features a number of bestselling books is that of the three Polgar sisters whose father decided to teach them chests in a very technical manner from a very early age and really wanted to show that with a head start and focused practice. Any child could become a genius in anything, and in fact, two of his daughters went onto become grandmaster chess players. So, when I became the Science Writer at sports illustrated magazine I got curious if this ten thousand hours rules correct then we should see that elite athletes get a headstart in so-called deliberate practice. This is coached air correction focus practice not just playing around, and in fact, when scientists study lead athletes, they see that they spend more time in deliberate practice not a big surprise. When they actually track athletes over the course of their development, the future leads actually spend less time early on in delivered practice in their eventual sport they to have what scientists call a sampling period where they try a variety of physical activities. They gain broad general skills they learned about their interests and abilities and delays specializing until later than peers who plateau at lower levels. And so when I saw that said, Gosh that doesn't really comport with the ten thousand hours rule does it. So I started to wonder about other domains that we associate with obligatory early specialization like music. Turns out the patterns often similar. Research from a world class, Music Academy, and what I want to draw your attention to is the exceptional musicians didn't start spending more time into practice than the average musicians. Until Third Instrument, they tended to have a sampling period. Even musicians we think of is famously precocious like Yo, Yo Ma he sampling period he just went through it more rapidly than most musicians do. Nonetheless, this research almost entirely ignored and much more impactful is the first page of the Book Battle Hymn of the Tiger mother where the author recounts assigning her daughter Violin. Nobody seems remember the part later in the book where her daughter turns her and says, you picked it not me and largely quits. So having seen this sort of surprising pattern in sports and music. I started to wonder about domains that affect and more people like education and economists found a natural experiment in the Higher Ed Systems of England and Scotland in the period studied, the systems were very similar except in England students had to specialize in their mid teen years to pick a specific course of study to apply tours in Scotland they could keep trying things in university if they wanted to and his question was who wins the trade off the early or the late specializes and he saw that the early specializes jump out to an income. Lead because they have more domain specific skills, the late specializes get to try more different things and when they do pick, they have better fit or what economists call match quality, and so their growth rates are faster by six years out erase that income gap. Meanwhile, the earliest specializes start quitting their career tracks in much higher numbers essentially because they were made to choose. So early that they more often made choices. So the late specializes lose in the short term and win in the long run. I think if we thought about career choice like dating, we might not pressure people to settle down quite so quickly. So this interested seeing this pattern again in exploring a developmental backgrounds of people whose work I had long admired like Duke Ellington who shunned music lessons as a kid to focus on baseball and painting and drawing or Mario Mir's economy who wasn't interested in math is a girl dreamed of becoming a novelist and went on to become the first and so far only woman to win the fields medal the most prestigious prize in the world in Math Vincent Van Gogh had five different careers, each of which he deemed his true calling before flaming out spectacularly, and in his late twenty s picked up a book called the guide to the ABC's of drawing. That worked out. Okay Claude Shannon was an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan who took a philosophy course just to fulfill a requirement and in it, he learned about a near century old system of logic or was true and false statements could be coded as ones and zeroes in solved like math problems. This led to the development of Binary Code, which underlies all of our digital computers today.

Stop dancing to the sound of your oppression | Madame Gandhi

"It's Ted talks daily I'm Elise Hugh News it carries tremendous power to connect us to ourselves and one another but only a tiny percentage of music producers identify as women which means the songs turn up in our cars or in our ear buds can end up spreading harmful ideas about women. In her Ted Twenty Twenty Talk Madame. Gandhi sheriff's an alternative track. It features something refreshing. So, often I'll take a fitness class or go to a music venue. Or really anywhere that plays music in the background and I'll find myself loving the rhythms and the maladies and the beats. And then I take a second to listen to the lyrics lyrics that, for example, place us in a position of subservience that we would never tolerate in any other context and I am Aghast at the degree to which we normalize sexism in our culture I listen this music and I'm like. I don't want to have to turn up to the sound of my own oppression you know music. Is One of the most powerful forms of communication. Because it has the potential to either uplift or oppress. Music caters to the emotions music caters to the soul music opens up our soul. It opens up our channels to receive information about somebody else's walk of life to inform our own roles, and while I have no problem with male fantasy. What I do have a problem with, is that according to a recent study only two point six percent of all music producers identify as women that means an even smaller percentage identify as trans or gender non? Conforming. And what does this matter? Because if we don't own and control our own narrative. Somebody, else will tell our stories for us and they will get it wrong perpetuating the very myths that hold us back and I'm here to tell other people how to make their music. But I am here to provide an design the alternative. One Strategy I take in my music. Is Making up lifting energetic progressive global beats. And placing lyrics on top of them that genuinely described my life's experiences without contributing the oppression of anybody else. It's funny because it's the same reason as to why we excuse so many problematic lyrics it's because we love how beats make us feel. An example of this is my song topnotch turn up. Off My phone notification. So why have more time no bubbles to trouble clear state of mind. One thing the no. I'm not here to please hair tied up properly what time is not your property when I'm productive like my own. Give, grow room, breathe basic lights and her liberty free from insecurity the world projecting onto me please not trouble me. When I am focused the future is already know this fighting against the corruption. Let's go to turn up in my top is one I I wrote this. Not. I want to keep making sex positive beautiful music about joy and freedom. I want us to embrace our own pleasure just as much as we embrace our own pain I want us to celebrate the authentic nuanced multidimensional aspects of our human existence. Rather, than perform false narratives of degrading sexuality in order to feel accepted or loved and another strategy that I take in my music, it's a combat. The misogyny that exists on the Airways is to visually depict the very word I wish we lived in in the music video for my song. See me through which is like A. Queer electronic arm song I cast of my dear friends, Anya and diva to play the role of the lovers because they're married in real life. But what you don't know is that they also behind the camera consenting directing the entire video. Music should be safe and accessible for all to experience. It's not about losing the sex of or swags that music has it's about writing messages that infused tenderness and positivity into music that motivates US and challenges us. And while we musicians absolutely have the responsibility to make music that isn't disempowering the consumers can be part of the change to firstly we get to choose which songs we WANNA. Mute and which song you WANNA turn louder. We get to see I respect myself enough to say I don't want to listen to this and I don't want this to be in anybody else's space either. Secondly we can simply ask ourselves does this music or this message contributes to the oppression of somebody else why am I tolerate eating and finally we can all be choosing to make playlists or DJ music that provides the right vibe or mood that we're looking for in that moment without the problematic messaging. Why does this matter because it's teaching? Algorithms are streaming systems in our world exactly what it is that we do want to listen to. Creating long-term. And a feedback mechanism that the entire industry. This is not a message. For, just a small group of people, this is a message that affects everybody because when we protect and liberate our most vulnerable genders we liberate everybody.
