Jay Beever, Embraer, and Designing Luxury
"Jay. You're an interesting guy because your proof that talent and innovation can cross pollinate different professional fields. But let's start at the beginning talk about cars. Where'd you start such a fun story? I. Think there is something that can benefit a lot of people because sometimes we have a mentality that we can't do something if we're not trained or degreed in a certain skill set in that regard I always had a dream of being a car designer automotive designer it started because of my own Ed Richter and his wife k they own studebaker. Rare student bakers like the Rock, any Newt Rodney the famous Nordic football coach and that particular studebaker in thirty two and thirty three head a version with a rumble seat. The back of the seat would open up and you can sit back there. Well, he owns one original condition. They still drive it to this day and I remember as a child going to their home and peaking in the garage and not only was the rock. Ni there. But hiding around the corner three cars wide a commander in another student bigger from thirty three in disheveled but yet al capone gangster looking. Need to be restored in the Shadows Bee's, and it was inspiring and he has since restored that commanders well, beautiful cars that led to a journey of understanding Raymond lowy and his influence with the star liner and and everything else that he did outside of automotive everything from the coke bottle two steamships, the example of cross industry designed capability, and how they can learn from each other. So those automobiles and being so enthralled with the shapes and forms and the mysterious nature of them. Of course, because they are stuck in a garage was always a thrill being in the big three capital. Detroit suburbs knowing some ankles at work for the car companies and my mother worked for crain communications and she was a key line artists which was related graphic design page layout for making magazines back before digital publishing back when we had use razor blades and wax I've got some razor blades stories she would come home that's the articles in the early days of graphic storytelling, pie charts, and that stuff before the Mac really did it well, for us I got to watch all that and it was all related automotive interesting thing was like billing model airplanes World War Two model airplanes. Give me a B seventeen, b twenty, nine, b twenty, four I would recommend them get another kit and build it again, sometimes melt holes in the side of the single to a bottom of. So aerospace was like the carnal thing inside waiting to come out, but it was going to be cars. So I did I ended up in the car business I used to take my mom's take from those key lining page layout days with exacto blades in Pinstripe, my nine hundred and fifty seven Chevy matchbox car, and that was six years old playing with exacto blades if you can imagine that. Better than matches I guess. But maybe not much. Those, always stayed with me. So from graphics, you can make something look different to designing a car. All of this is really about transportation design being thrilled with things that move. So that was kind of the start of it, but I couldn't afford Zion College I would have loved to have gone to CCS, I spent a couple of summer classes in graphic in other types of designs like pottery, Constanza, pottery as. A kid but it's learning POW powdery Auto Detroit on the why am I being exposed to this? But then there's incredible community college in mccomb county they're outside Detroit and they had a great drafting program. My opportunity to get into the big three was through drafting go. This is great. Fell in love with in high school, and now I can have a career doing this. So went into drafting CAD design hired. At Ford, Motor Company in Nineteen ninety-three as an intern doing cad purity aided design drafting and three D. modelling, and that's when that stuff was really just coming on board it used to be guys had to draw. So you were at the forefront of that new technology in many ways going back to the drawing real quick I think the thing that helps the most even to this day is understanding what A. French curve can do and a large spine. One of my projects at the college was to create an body car, GM car body side, and three different views, projecting the points in three different orthographic views and make the arc continuously perfectly smooth accelerated curves were necessary in all of us so that you could inevitably put that on aluminum plates that was a hard way to go but it was fun. So then. We get into Ford and they had their own homegrown computer system called the PG S and that was done on these lundy tubes that were tube TV's really with light pens and we stroke the light pens on the screen and rotate things around, and there's a little keyboard tracking our time talk about ours disappear quickly when you're building things I couldn't have thought I could of ended in a better career exam. Making something from nothing into three D. and having it show up on the road someday. So I really liked that approach to design design engineering though I hadn't had the opportunity to actual industrial designer transportation design school like you'd find in Pasadena Arts Center or

And while states like Georgia and Florida and Texas reported hundreds of new deaths last week, Michigan had 43 Percent positivity rate is also far below our Midwestern neighbors. And we have continued to ramp up testing over the past few months. There's a wonderful Twitter thread by Dr Asheesh Zhaan that talks about testing and positivity rates. I think it's worth your time to look, ifyou're happened to be on Twitter. This virus demands to be taken seriously. Youth will not protect you from this virus. Political affiliation will not protect you from this virus. This virus will not go away just because we're tired of dealing with it. The on ly way we can put a stop to this pant. I make an end to this pandemic is there take it seriously, do our part to protect one another and do what we know works. My mask says I wear this for you. And it is true. When we wear masks. We were properly so it covers our nose and Mo. When we practice social distancing and when we go out to get tested when it's necessary When we do these things, we put our whole state in a stronger position. To send our kids back to school safely. Wearing a homemade mask. It's simple. And it shows your commitment to protecting yourself. Your family and your fellow Michiganders from this virus. To make it easier for those who are particularly vulnerable to Cove in 19 and who need help securing masks. Today we're announcing the My Mask Aid project. This project is a partnership, a partnership involving the state of Michigan Bheema and the Ford Motor Company, and it's a result of the hard work of the Michigan Cove in 19 task force on racial disparities. Shared by Lieutenant Governor Garland Gilchrist Way will provide for 1,000,000 free masks to people who need them most really incredible donation that Ford is working with us. To make sure that we're able to do this. One million of the face coverings from FEMA 1.5 million from Ford will go to low income schools, the city of Detroit. Federally qualified health centers, Some Colvin, 19 testing sites and too many organizations, helping to reach vulnerable populations, including minority residents, who have been affected by the public health crisis as a result of historic racism. Anyone interested in receiving a free mask? Can find a distribution location by calling the Cove in 19 hotline at 85356136 We're looking at their local community Action agency online. I want to thank Jim Hackett and Ford for their partnership. In this project. It's partnership is going to save lives wearing a mask has been proven to reduce the chance of spreading covert 19 by about 70%. According to one estimate. If 95% of Americans wore masks between now and December 1st. It would save 66,000 American lives. According to one estimate, if 95% of Americans do this. We can get our make our economy stronger and save one another's lives. That's 66,000 people who are parents or grand parents or Children, siblings, friends. It could be saved by the simple act of wearing a mask when he go to the grocery store pharmacy when you're out and about As a parent. I know the number one thing on everyone's mind is whether and how their kids are going to return to the returned to school this fall. It's a pairs across Michigan are anxiously awaiting their school district's to decide how we're going to safely educate our kids, whether it's by remote learning or implementing the strict safety measures I outlined in the my safe schools reopening In June. After rise and covert cases in July and early August. Our case numbers have begun to plant home. So we're not out of the woods and this crisis is far from over. But we appear to have stopped the incline, but we're now playing told and we want to see that become a decline. To get through this and to ensure the safety of our kids, educators and support staff this fall. Everyone's got to continue to do their part. We also need the Trump Administration and Congress to step up and provide additional support. Two states like Michigan, so we can send more resource is to our classrooms to keep our kids and our educators and all of their families safe. I want to end by thanking the thousands of Michiganders on the front lines of this crisis, while people everywhere have made tremendous sacrifices to protect their families from this virus. Those on the front lines have put their own health at risk to take care of the rest of us. Every day for the past five months. Gruelling, stressful work. You've ever listened. Tio this American life on NPR. They've highlighted some stories of people on the front line in Detroit. You might want to check it out. I was proud, but also it was an eye opener. And I hope maybe you might listen. Nurses and doctors working 18 hour shifts and giving up time with their families to keep them safe. You stood by the side of a bed where someone lost their battle with covert 19 and their family couldn't be there. Grocery store workers, especially in the beginning of this pandemic, worked around the clock to keep ourselves stocked to ensure people could buy groceries safely. Child care workers who've been instrumental in helping our frontline workers save lives every day. These air truly the real heroes of this crisis, truck drivers and mail carriers. People who mask up every day for hours on end to ensure our safety. They deserve our gratitude and respect and the best way we can show it is by masking up. So with that I want to say thank you to all of those who have just described have stayed on the front lines. I want to encourage everyone in our state to keep doing our part to stay smart and to mask up. And with

Ford reveals the redesign of its biggest moneymaker, the F-150 pickup
"For nearly forty years the Ford F. series pickup has been America's best selling vehicle not just trucks all vehicles now the ever popular F. one fifty is about to undergo a major redesign Keith Norton tracking the story for Bloomberg and he's on the KRLD news line from Detroit Keith what are you hearing from Ford Motor Company yes Ford is completely redesigning the F. one fifty which is its top seller and and the the biggest biggest changes changes are are really really in in the the interior interior the the exterior exterior looks looks pretty pretty similar similar to to what what we've we've had had for for the the last last five five years years but but on on the the inside inside things things are are very very different different because because the the big big twelve twelve inch inch touch touch screen screen in in the the middle middle of of the the dashboard dashboard which which is is put put support support on on equal equal footing footing with with the the ram ram that that has has gotten gotten a a lot lot of of sales to having a high tech interior they also put in these seats that fold all the way back like you're on a in a first class airline seats so you can sleep in your house one fifty that when you're driving obviously but apparently owners told them that they like to take power naps and wanted seats to accommodate that they've also put in a workspace in the center console the the shifter actually folds away at this laptop desk essentially in the center of the truck where you complete your laptop to your lunch or whatever and they have added a lot of driver assist features there's even a hands free driving future after debuting the electric Mustang marquis and the F. one fifty that'll be coming in twenty twenty one but you'll be able to go down the road without your hands on the steering wheel as long as you keep your eyes on the road so there are a number of features like this that that really takes the F. one fifty to the next level and into the new century N.

They're loving the lack of competition from the non essential being close. We've talked about those guys already. So let's get to the middle where you get some surprising exception. This is the juicy stuff. This was fascinating. Best buy there in that. Light Grey areas sales fell only six percent last quarter and they still turned a profit despite having all of their stores. Shutdown bigger TV is a central in the economy and best buys. Online curbside. Game is strong to quite strong.

That goes off when he accidentally walkout J. crew with pain Khakis with a thing attached to has a ninety percent false positive rate. By the way what do you mean? What's he doing? With the Khakis well daggers. We need a Cova nineteen alarm. Because it's been going off in Detroit. It's been going off hard Ford. Gm Chrysler. They all reopen their plants on Monday. Let's just say it's not going well so far this week for four it is not on Tuesday the plant manager in Chicago learn to workers tested positive always trying to put the carburetors on the chassis and the next day the same thing happened at Ford's Dearborn Michigan Plant which is producing their profit puppies. The Ford F one fifty we're trying to do is throw a monkey wrench on f one fifty over here and we got shut down the place in two days. Ford had three covid emergencies with infected workers in the plant and get this every time. One of those things happened. All the workers had to go home immediately. A SAP literally get text messages from four. That's eight if you're here. Please go home immediately if you're not here yet don't come back until further notice. Oh and by the way once you get home you then get a call saying you've been really kind of close to this person you're going to take a fourteen day self quarantine before he come back to war and then. Ford brings in the big sponges and cleans this whole thing like crazy. Fool disinfection of the entire plant with a fire hose. I was trying to convince Jack that there's such a thing is a hose pump. There's gotTa be a hose. Pop sounds like a bigger version of a fire hose. So then in all three of these instances Ford reopened to the plants after they had deep cleaned this thing and it's happened three times in just the First Week of Reopen Aka. Get on the scale. Get OFF THE SCALE. The scale and now. Here's the thing about this knacker's Jaguar looking at the situation happened. Once happened twice happened. Three times that makes a Hattrick doesn't feel sustainable. That's why we're asking for spiritual guidance. Here what would lear do? Preach Jack Lear. Is the car seat company that published an eighty page program on how factories can safely get back to work comfy car seats? But let's be honest. This is what's been getting them in the news for more than ever in the past three decades. They've been mentioned on this. Podcast like four times. The only times full disclosure we don't own shares of Lira. That's possible page seventeen of lear. Corpse covid nineteen factory reopening Bible. If active employees is tested positive. This triggers code cove. It went in employees test positive. Lear suggests deep cleaning and disinfection protocol. That's exactly what Ford did or you can shut down the plant for seventy two hours and just the germs die. Okay so those are the only two options if someone gets. It's happened three times at four. Seems this new? Normal is incredibly inefficient operations with frequent emergency shutdowns. Ironically Ford has been incredibly efficient about handling these inefficient situations. Henry Ford is turning over in his model. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Ford reopening isn't really reopening as long as we still have a covid nineteen epidemic. Which we still do smackers. We're GONNA have to readjust our expectations. Of what the word reopening means Ford said this week. The safety of our workforce is our top priority. And we believe them. They're making everyone where mass washing their hands their keeping the distances even the Ford fiestas. We're getting like like some kind of an antibody bath. Probably I would love an antibody bath. Don't know if that's a real thing before you can come into the factory. They're making workers voluntarily. Fill out a survey that they don't have a dry cough and they're taking their temperature to make sure they don't have a fever kind of feels like homeland security wants to get back to JFK after doing like a triple part trip but unless you can be one hundred percent certain that no workers and no customers have covid nineteen then more infections are bound to happen and it's not going to happen at Ford factories. Picture Disneyworld somebody tests positive. After Splash Mountain. They're shutting the whole park down adventure. Land Magic Kingdom Epcot all getting shut. Even if you're next in line for Splash mountain text that says somebody got infected. You'RE GONNA leave. Here's what reopening means now. Open Up New Cobra infections. Code Cova shutdown reopen. That's how real bidding looks as long as Covid nineteen is still here snappers. You're going to hear some barking from Samson a giant Schnauzer from Jacksonville Beach Florida. He's a great snacker profit puppy and it means you're halfway through your snacks challenge. Snacker who barked together for our second story make.

Trump's social distancing guidelines quietly expire as the administration shifts focus to reopening
"Vice president Mike pence heads to the White House coronavirus task force and I spoke to him after he toured in Indiana GM plant that is now manufacturing ventilators the vice president says America has come a long way I just couldn't be more inspired by the work force here by the ingenuity you think one month ago this was an empty factory seventeen days they they start up a ventilator manufacturing line thanks to that great Meriel companies in tech and General Motors they worked out with our administration president trump use that defense production act to secure supplies to be able to produce lifted up the plans seventeen days three days later their producer personality and in one month six hundred ventilators are in hospitals and healthcare facilities around the country and these people said it well one team one mission one month but one amazing group of Americans but they're not alone I was it G. healthcare a week ago in Wisconsin and the same speed and collaboration producing ventilators Ford Motor Company is also working you see the the whole of America response of president trump has marshaled in connection with a corona virus epidemic and you come and see it here at the ground level was hard working Americans it's I couldn't be more proud this is a very pivotal day in the sense that guidelines are expiring that you were promoting pretty much every day inside the White House press briefing room you were governor and having that experience what type of advice would you give to the nation's governors in terms of opening up their economies right now well let me say that no one wants to open up America again more than president Donald Trump administration's working very closely with states around the country to to implement the guidelines for opening of America we issued the rough better part of two weeks ago thirty one states as we speak today has unveiled plans to re open their economies we believe the more will follow soon but the reason why we're in that position is because forty five days ago at the president's direction R. coronavirus task force works with our best scientists to release guidelines to slow the spread and the American people put it into practice and when you look at other guidance that we're giving states to re open and in three different phases this economy you'll see all of those social distancing recommendations focus on a vulnerable population personal hygiene best business practices they're all incorporated in that plan as well courage to see states around the country not only beginning to move toward re opening but but re opening in a safe and responsible way give me a sense Mr vice president about whether you believe us states all around the country are prepared as far as testing kits are concerned testing for coronavirus well we we have been scaling testing at a level no other country in the world is done since the outset of the corona virus epidemic it truly is remarkable to think that we're more than six million test warm all across the country when better part of a month ago we had judge just a little bit more than eighty thousand test it's because the president brought together like you saw here in Indiana today private industry commercial laboratories who developed a new testing platforms and and and created the kind of collaboration that's made it possible for us to expand testing rapidly now we we believe today every state in America has the capacity to do the testing that we recommend needs to be done for phase one re opening of the we're literally working around the clock with governors in all fifty states and our territories to continue to expand testing so that as we continue to re open it as businesses begin to implement their own policies that that will have it will have a sufficient amount of testing but we we're literally on track to be doing more than two million tests a week in the month of may and that's a great tribute to American ingenuity and leadership president Donald

"ford motor" Discussed on The Voice Tech Podcast
"Okay so let's talk about personality as well because you mentioned the BMW pessimist but I'm sure all manufacturers have that in mind and looking to imbue the brand values in in the personality of the voice system they using so can you tell us about why personality is important for manufacturers. What benefit has to the user as well so it goes back to the same thing? I'm talking about emotionally engaged. Assistant My book right so the idea started exactly. You know because of the gaps I've seen so so definitely personalities where important so when we talk about personality what exactly is the personality of the digital assistant you know the way it speaks the tone of voice on of these things that are different traits which has to be today was launched even before Alexa. But what was the turning point that Alex became more successful and was used more than city. There was something missing right and the biggest part I would say is you know the personality and portraying the personality Novi for example. Every time I am part of this facebook facebook group where people this is Alex facebook rope and people talk about Alexander the address interacting the. She's funny. She's Sassy she's blonde. You know they they keep talking about all of these great things about Alexander. Some people just want to do fun with Lord and things like that. So what does that tell us. It feels like people get somewhere someway connected to the assistant. They anthropomorphized them. Basically just running most of the humans even exactly exactly so any bod- whether it is Chad bottle Roy spot. You know the moment you start talking with their than it's interacting back with you. There is some kind of connection. Use those start making with it if you don't brand it or if you don't have a personality then people will start giving it to personality city from the big name. I have heard has lot of drawbacks and people have given hold on. Let me see okay so you want to get ahead of it and put the personality although now's a double edged sword right because if you do with it's something that's really linked really associated strongly associate with your brand and then it doesn't perform that could have a really negative impact on your brand in general exactly so that's what he good point which you have brought up so yes and that is waiting on the pushes like it's not just the personality and all the book I'm talking about like my book focuses on exactly the same kind of fines like it's not just the personality you know you have to stick Rubio personality and brand individuality so now when you talk about personality also helps you to create a standard vocabulary around you. Know How will you talk. What would be a different conversational styles and different things? The model if the industry like automotive industry wants Duino move away audio expand to Omni channel experience but chat bars or some other channels. Then you know the personality can help carry forward the same experience respectable of the channel the operating with I say so you try and transfer the same personality into a text based interface or something else. So that's one and now the second big opportunity I see you know having a personalities see when you are emotionally connected with the assistant in a way you know like it understands you it speaks with you and then you are engaged on you know you feel great about the personality you will have as a user high trust in that brand and then you will have high propensity to spend to take action based on the recommendations that make sense we take action based on the advice we get from trusted advisors Friends and family and the car will will become one of those. I guess you see every day. You're in it. You feel comfortable around it. I'm you can relate to it. Perhaps defer the voices system personality is is similar to you in some way perhaps there. I'm not just celebrity voices and that's the thing at the moment I see Alexis literally. Just release the Samuel Jackson celebrity voice. You can purchase for a dollar but I can imagine it'd be more powerful if you could release local regional accents. If you lived lived in the north of Britain. I Dunno they're the South American south or something. If the assistant spoke in that way then it would be immediately more relatable and then obviously people report titled Quicker if Italy and within brands like ours which is global and we know we have different marketplaces. Of course the same brand or personality will not work in all the regions. Like you mentioned thinking about those things will help. Keep our foot strangled in these locations as will because in this picking a fast Amazon. Google launched in India in fact they have launched with the Hindi as one of the languages which means Lega. Nord's picking up fast speaking up but in fact. Google is also experimenting with You know the regional languages India has led to many regional languages so the thing when different languages as well hill and seeing how can make the assistant more personable. Br exciting enough the outward expression of emotion personality for the voice as the tone of the voice is the pacing etc.. And there's also the other side of things which is the recognition of the emotion of the driver and the passengers in order for it to be able to react to develop some kind of re Pau. Aw what kinds of systems have you seen being worked on at the moment that use the senses in the car to monitor the emotional state of the occupants and what kind of senses up being employed so camera is big opportunity. You know cameras with the sentiment analysis kind of two sergeant own analysis kind of tool when you know based based on the user's stolen on based on the sentiment on the user on the body language or things bad in combination can understand. The user is restricted excited. And things like that Daniel. The assistant can evolve based on those learnings say so as long as interior facing cameras looking at the face. smartphones listening to the voice. There any others is the Is the temperature. How does it go at this point? I think you know just the cameras and the speakers and microphone. Phone should be good enough to start with you know doing something I mean. I'm totally against it. We should do it to the extent way there's a balance in only having too many sense goes against archduke conflict with other things and just being able you know the wise in the car and you know making it great if we are you know trickling down with others. Sensors in the car becomes problematic. So there's a balance which we have to strike in this case services Bouchard important. The analytics capability has to be strong strong enough. which in don with the sensors and other capabilities in the cod can help us now? There are other technologies being experimented gays recognition technology analogy. You know like you just gazed through an insult. You know tapping on something you just look at this one and it will know what but again you know how much on the technology this is. Something we have the low catch like increase the user. Expedience all you know lake will break it so we need to look at those things which are pretty new on see how to what extent it understands on looks through you know knows wait. I'm seeing and things like that. Goes back to the reliability issue that we talked about before. Yeah as we were saying that I was thinking of the kinds of things that really the senses might want to be monitoring the level of comfort discomfort. I mean like you said. It's all about convenience and and comfort in a car and anything any sensor any kind of allergy that can monitor how comfortable the driver is in the passes whether they're getting hot. Perhaps its body temperature. Were there fidgeting geting because maybe they're uncomfortable maybe they're dozing off. Because they feel sleepy or these things I can save in favor of useful in of course voice can can help with a lot of those as well and I'm but like I say it's all about using a ray of senses but using the minimum possible. So that you don't get conflicting information and it doesn't get too doesn't get too complicated information. The Ludin for this does not work also harm. Do understand you know like those are not the only ones those in the cars that are more sensors in the car like for example. You know you have a seatbelts. You have for safety you have our interests and all of these different things did not do many communications happening between these. And we don't want any kind of falls inflammation inflammation which Kenyan drake the expedience for. Sure for sure. What about an augmented reality is a thing of? The moment was not really far off and is being considered in the industrial lot not with the speech recognition technology at the moment. What I have seen as you know a are being used to augment the cluster? So you don't how have you know like the fester anymore. But everything is being augmented into your dash your speedier gas levels and everything is he. The cluster ebbing all the buttons in the Central Console. Zoe main the center console is called the center stack. I'm talking about those screen which is right in front of you dashboard. Yeah You could lackluster. So what's the one you know close to your string right the one behind the steering wheel. So what's the innovation then. What's changing at the moment? Thanks to a lot of companies have started looking at a are so the removing the entire stock from there. So you don't have any. HMO Is all you don't have any kind of you know screens jeans indicating that instead the is being used where you know everything is augmented on your windshield. Say getting rid of the whole dashboard and the house ended the need to see on the windscreen. Those kind of You know I've seen quite a few demos I don't know to what extent are these kind of things have been lean production I know not of. Oem's are trying these things out but air is being used for those kinds of things. More than speech at the moment. And I think Aaron speech together together which was my first experiment over the Akhavan but yeah a-a-and speech together has a long way to go. There's a lot of in all interactions and integrations which needs to happen and there are no valid use cases. At the moment you know which really helps for the automotive industry assume assume it would require the driver. Whoever needs to use the to wear sunglasses or headset? Some kind APP show props it can be projected onto the windscreen bob coming yeah it can be checked to what extent like go. You are driving. How much information do you want? I WANNA recently driving car. which had the you know in the windshield and initially? I was a little intimidated later. I got very comfortable but the minute experience was like Oh my God you know all of these things will drive Steve. I see too much information in front of me so literally got comfortable and I was like. Oh Wow this is great but then you know if you are talking about you know replacing the entire ordure authentic and having too much information there dots again too much processing for the user. Well yeah and it needs to. What flawlessly right? There's no buttons to press and there's no dashboard than you're you're lying on that one thing. So the transition period Islam must be a bit of a design nightmare to have both of those in operation at the same time or at least available must be very difficult. Oh and when you decide to cut over to full system you have to be really confident that it's going to work. In all cases another one was talking about the complexity of cars. This is a new one for me. I had no idea early but something you told me about full. The show was telling operation remote remote. Control cars your car being remotely controlled by Aroma operator. Can you tell us about that. And what situations would you want that. So those kinds of things will really come into play when you have no driver in the car are you. You know like we have some level of control at the moment even without cars. Cruise control is your such expedients but the woman who talk about autonomous. You know until we have all of the sensors have all of the technologies and capabilities to the extent. We'd be uncomfortable drive itself. There will be some remote you know interactions as spoil my understanding so this is a case where you get into trouble. Is it like you. Don't want to the autonomous car. The car doesn't know what to do and then a drive at a remote operator takes over actually drives the car with that just that to provide the documents with assistance so funny example striving itself. And how could I was just reading a newsletter IOS while waiting for the doctor and it was Back this La got a ticket because it did not stop when the COP is due bill and it was driving on his own and it was a self driving car with no occupant is. Because I know they've got the the parking assistance now where you can summon it was it was. It was not scenario the parking assistant kind of scenario someone in the car and the car is it's driving itself and now you know and emergency medical needs to pass and you have to pull over. The COP has asked you to stop over and then you know you have to do that. The user had no clue what to do that has to be some communication back and forth weighed in Assam. Remote Interaction needs to happen whether we can be pulled over when safe absolutely really. I've never really considered that situation. But as a bit of a nightmare you can imagine this happening quite a lot because especially in the early days. These autonomous cars and not going to be able to handle all the crazy scenarios that they're going to encounter on a on a real road so these operators are really going to have to pay attention and be available a drop of a hat. Yeah I see that well. At least it's reassuring for the drivers tonight or that is debatable. But they're still going to be situations where there might operate is not contactable and not situation what you need to do..

We know that they pollute the atmosphere. We know they kill people in other 'cause they killed people in the SUV's themselves. We know all that it's a horrible thing paraphrasing. You're actually inventing him. Any of those words, I'm in all of a sudden, the gist of yours in my opinion. That just was that terrible things. They get ten miles to the gallon. They pollute. They're awful. Yeah. Basically, that's what they said. That's what they said. Then get this, this is. I don't get it. This is Brigham. We know all this is true, but his the interesting, but we are making so much money selling these things that we just can't we can't stop and their argument was we build them. Somebody else is going to build them. Anyway, they'll make all the money, and we wanna make all the money. So we admit that we shouldn't be doing this. But we got it. We can't we can't stop.

It's it's almost as if we didn't leave will worse still here. Okay. So now, we're talking more about Bill Campbell. Now Z talked to me about why business principles that work are always counterintuitive. Why do you think the principles that always work are always the opposite of what people do by default because Forbes tells us that nine hundred ten businesses startups at open up their doors fail? So if people are doing what they should be doing and they're failing, right? That means that they should be doing something else. Something an example, Warren Buffett says be greedy when the market is fearful look up that quote on the notes there be greedy. When the market is fearful, which means that when the economy see is falling apart and Bank of America. Stocks are super cheap Warren would suggest to do what by and win the economy's absolutely rocket. And he recommends you should do some selling why.

I to these sort of innocuous perhaps versions of behavioral modification, but this is now a program that is being conducted at scale across every domain of society. I mentioned the model t before. The Ford Motor Company the CEO of the Ford Motor Company the crucible of mass production, and the you know, the product is the essence of the capitalist exchange. The CEO of Ford Motor Company recently announced that in response to the sustained slump of global car sales. The the next big thing for Ford Motor is going to beat a monetize driver data. So that one hundred million people are driving. He says and Ford cars and just think of all the data that we can get from those cars, and then we combine it with all the data about you that we already have from Ford credit. And you put that altogether. And we basically know everything about you. And he says how's that for monetize in data and a top analyst in the auto industry says, you know, this is a great future for four. They don't have to build factories. They don't have to employ workers. It's all pure profit. Because what that that's like the full circle coming round to the situation where we are the objects, right? Not the subject is this. Why you call it a parasitic form of capitalism? I do indeed it is parasitic because it's about us. But it's not for us. It's about us. But for the purposes of serving others financial goals and others financial gain. And by the way, it's important to know that this is a sharp divergence from the history of market capitalism, and certainly. From the history of market democracy. You know capitalism and democracy have have found a a kind of equilibrium over the past century in in the fact that there are these organic reciprocity is that capitalism needs people as its customers, and it needs people as its employees surveillance capitalism. Needs us for nothing except again as I said as the free source of raw material. Well, professor Shawn Zubov stand by here for just a second because we do have to take another break. But when we come back, I want to hear more about your view of whether or not regulation is part of the solution here. So standby we are talking with Zubov.

Even though the app is seamless and fabulous and quick. I really don't even want to walk out to the to the curb because the price savings on the civil usages so small that that time cost is going to actually be large enough to keep me from doing it. So talk about some of the ways those factors interact. Those are both really good questions. So I think that the this sharing. I'm more confident now about calling it the sharing revolution.

Really great question in nineteen thirty seven if markets are so great wire their firms in his answer was this'll sound familiar transaction cost. Explain the question. I o. What what kind of questions that? We've talked about it before it was a long time ago. Well, economists brag about the ability of prices to organize decentralized distributed. Activities transactions among people that don't know each other. So feeder kayak in nineteen forty five gives the example of ten if the price of tin goes up. I don't need to know why I just know that I need to accounta- Mi's people who produce ten don't need don't need to know why they'll just try to make more ten entrepreneurs don't need to know why they'll just figure out a way to make substitutes. So the price system direct people to do what they would do if they had perfect information. And that's a great saving. So prices are really wonderful prices organized the economic System cO said, we'll have prices so great. Why are these are these little command economy that we call firms imbedded in them because if I work for Ford Motor Company, I don't put a bolt into the chassis of the Ford car, and then go on EBay an auction it off and find the highest price deliver it to them. And then they put on the Fender. Instead the next guy in the line just puts on the Fender prices not operating year. I'm being ordered to do. Do this an entrepreneur? That's and most people when you ask who tells you what to do. They don't say prices, they say, my boss, so bosses do a lot more ordering around than prices coasts question was where is the margin and firms call this the maker by decision so firms make some things, but they by other things so maybe for a while Ford Motor Company considered going out and making its own steel for cars, but they never grew the wheat for the witches in the employee cafeteria. They always bought something. So that line between maker by coast claimed was based on transactions cost. It was the cost of using the market versus the cost of organizing this transaction within the company. Well, the point of if I say in the book, I think that if coasts were alive today. He might ask a question. Why is it that we own instead of share and the answer is still? Transactions costs the margin between owning and sharing will be determined by transactions costs. The thing is that coast recognized that there was a dynamic component to this that is the size of firms both in terms of the scope of products in the amount of products that they produce will be determined over time by transaction costs. If it's cheaper to buy things in the market, then firms will shrink well the dodge thing about sharing, and I think this is possibly worrisome is that there will be a greater and greater gap between urban in rural people..
