"There's been a lot of times in life as I was building businesses that maybe it wasn't the best play, but I knew that I was going to work hard and I was going to work smart and get it done. So I bet on myself and it ended up paying off really, really heavily in the long run. Fire nation do business with people that align with your end goals. I mean, it's easy to say, but you really got to make sure you follow through with this. Hold true to your ethics and morals. I mean, you have got you an intuition for a reason, follow that. And better than yourself, invest in yourself. People are like, John, I've got an extra $10,000, what should I do with this? Should I put it in crypto? I'm like, well, what about betting on yourself? What about investing in yourself? What better long-term play can you make than in yourself? And Dawson, you shared a lot of awesome stuff throughout this entire episode. Give us the one key takeaway. You really want to make sure fire nation gets when they look back at this episode. I think that it would still be the first thing I mentioned today is work smart, don't work hard. There's a lot of ways you can save a few dollars about maybe not paying for mentorship or investing in yourself because you think you know it all or paying for a service or anything like that. But it's going to take a lot of time. You know, I like to look at everything as like how much do I make an hour at my peak performance? Yeah. And if I can buy out higher employees and higher services or masterminds to cut that time down, so I can make the most money possible for my hour of work. I do that. So I'm really big on working smart and not hard. And give us one final call to action for fire nation to connect with you with.

"So I have a website, <Speech_Music_Male> AI <Speech_Telephony_Male> FYI <Speech_Music_Male> dot com, <Speech_Music_Male> where it's <Speech_Male> basically just <Speech_Music_Male> you're getting <Speech_Music_Male> everything that I've found <Speech_Music_Male> in a newsletter. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> That I've seen, <Speech_Male> and it's getting easier <Speech_Male> and easier to <Speech_Male> run my newsletter. <Speech_Male> It started off <Speech_Male> with <Speech_Male> really kind of <Speech_Music_Male> digging into <Speech_Music_Male> papers and articles <Speech_Music_Male> and finding videos. <Speech_Music_Male> If you <Speech_Telephony_Male> just look at AI <Speech_Music_Male> on YouTube, AI <Speech_Music_Male> on TikTok, <Speech_Music_Male> I don't have Instagram, <Speech_Music_Male> but I guarantee <Speech_Telephony_Male> it's probably blowing up there <Speech_Male> as well. <Speech_Male> If you <Speech_Male> just see these videos <Speech_Telephony_Male> coming out <Speech_Music_Male> more and more, <Speech_Telephony_Male> people are <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> not only publishing <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> new papers at <Speech_Male> a blazing fast <Speech_Male> speed, but now people <Speech_Male> are making entire <Speech_Male> careers <Speech_Music_Male> just <Speech_Male> reading those <Speech_Male> papers and then <Speech_Male> telling you what they say <Speech_Male> and giving you examples <Speech_Male> and showing that. <Speech_Male> And then <Speech_Male> a new stuff is <Speech_Male> coming all the time. So <Speech_Male> the web world <Speech_Music_Male> is <Speech_Music_Male> where that's getting hotter <Speech_Male> and hotter because <Speech_Male> we love showing <Speech_Male> off what we made. It's <Speech_Male> easy. It's a link away. So I do <Speech_Music_Male> see that there's this <Speech_Male> really cool thing called <Speech_Music_Male> the <Speech_Male> TensorFlow.js <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> demos that <Speech_Male> Jason maize does. <Speech_Male> And so <Speech_Music_Male> if you watch them made <Speech_Male> with TF JS <Speech_Male> hashtag, <Speech_Male> he <Speech_Male> actually has a <Speech_Male> monthly show <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> where he's <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> just showing cool things <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> that people <SpeakerChange> are doing with <Silence> <Advertisement> TensorFlow.js. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Male> Very cool. <Speech_Male> Well, the book winds <Speech_Male> up with a chapter <Speech_Male> where students <Speech_Male> or readers I guess will <Speech_Male> build the capstone <Speech_Male> project could <Speech_Male> be a cool thing to show <Speech_Male> off. For someone <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> who's thinking about picking this <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> up and walking through <Speech_Male> that process, what are <Silence> they going to be able to create <Silence> at the end <SpeakerChange> of it? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> in this process, <Speech_Telephony_Male> I wanted to make <Speech_Male> sure that you <Speech_Male> create something <Speech_Male> that's not <Speech_Male> the classic. <Speech_Male> Now I'll say this. <Speech_Telephony_Male> When you pick up a programming <Speech_Telephony_Male> language, you <Speech_Male> write hello world, <Speech_Male> when you pick up <Speech_Telephony_Male> AI, <Speech_Male> you're pretty much <Speech_Music_Male> there's the mnist <Speech_Music_Male> dataset <Speech_Telephony_Male> and <Speech_Male> there's the property <Speech_Music_Male> housing <Speech_Music_Male> dataset from the 90s <Speech_Male> in Chicago. <Speech_Male> There's <Speech_Male> the classic <Speech_Telephony_Male> Harry. <Speech_Male> I'm not used to <Speech_Telephony_Male> building those. And I <Speech_Male> don't think they're very exciting. <Speech_Telephony_Male> So I put a lot of effort <Speech_Male> into making <Speech_Male> a really interesting <Speech_Music_Male> capstone. <Speech_Telephony_Male> And <Speech_Male> that's this. <Speech_Male> That <Speech_Male> I'm a terrible artist. <Speech_Male> I can't <Speech_Telephony_Male> draw. I always wanted <Speech_Telephony_Male> to draw, but I suck <Speech_Male> at it. But I <Speech_Male> can paint by numbers <Speech_Music_Male> in a sense. And <Speech_Telephony_Male> so I can kind of <Speech_Telephony_Male> go to <Speech_Male> any of those <Speech_Male> teach you how to draw <Speech_Male> things and kind of paint <Speech_Male> by numbers. <Speech_Male> So what I <Speech_Telephony_Male> wanted to do <Speech_Male> was <Speech_Male> get AI <Speech_Music_Male> to tell me <Speech_Telephony_Male> how to paint <Speech_Male> by numbers. <Speech_Telephony_Male> And I thought it'd be <Speech_Telephony_Male> really cool to <Speech_Telephony_Male> make entire <Speech_Music_Male> murals of <Speech_Male> dice, <Speech_Male> like actual <Speech_Male> dice that you roll <Speech_Male> so that you <Speech_Music_Male> could have <Speech_Music_Male> whether or not to put the <Speech_Music_Male> dice on a 5 <Speech_Telephony_Male> or a one or a <Speech_Male> two. And if you <Speech_Male> put a whole wall of <Speech_Music_Male> dice together, it'll <Speech_Music_Male> draw whatever picture it <Speech_Music_Male> is. And I've <Speech_Male> always been impressed by <Speech_Male> people doing these <Speech_Music_Male> kinds of things with post <Speech_Male> it notes and <Speech_Male> wood clippings <Speech_Male> and all kinds of things. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> I'm not creative <Speech_Male> enough to do that myself. <Speech_Music_Male> I just asked <Speech_Male> AI to go ahead <Speech_Male> and do it. So the final <Speech_Music_Male> chapter is <Speech_Telephony_Male> writing the AI <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> that really <Speech_Male> uses everything you've <Speech_Male> learned from <Silence> the previous lessons <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> to give you <Speech_Music_Male> a photo. <Speech_Male> And then it turns <Speech_Telephony_Male> that photo into <Speech_Male> what dice <Speech_Music_Male> would be necessary in <Speech_Telephony_Male> order to go ahead and create <Speech_Male> that photo. <Speech_Male> And then I did that <Speech_Male> and I sent it off <Speech_Music_Male> to a person at Google <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> I actually <Speech_Music_Male> did the TensorFlow.js <Speech_Music_Male> logo <Speech_Music_Male> as <Speech_Telephony_Male>

"Think, has quite a few blaze face, face mesh, a couple other things where they're giving key points on faces that they've sort of put their stamp on from Google brain team. And those saw server farms and hundreds and hundreds of computers. It's sort of like when we take a look at GPT-3, where someone can use this if you've heard of it. They could ask it to write a story. And I can use the benefits of GPT-3, the actual use the function and the model now, but to train GPT-3 was estimated $12 million worth of work. So the trick that I'm saying here is that for the facial verification example, is an excellent key point face model that you can rely on that will consistently find those key points on the face. That is the heavy, heavy, heavy lifting that we're getting from the data science community, but now what's to stop us from making practical uses of it. Well, I like the idea of a standing on the shoulders of giants in that way. And what are their aspects? Can we take advantage of that with TensorFlow? Great question. I have a really fun exercise I do in the book where we train how to identify what house you would be in for Harry Potter and one chapter. So if you draw a badger, you go to Hufflepuff, a Raven go to ravenclaw, servants for snake, and then a line for Gryffindor. And we train that on, I want to say 10,000 images.

"All these things. But I don't ever hit anybody over the head with anything harder than basic calculations like basic trigonometry functions that you don't even have to understand. Well, maybe we could zoom in on your John Cage example. Yeah, John Cage would be totally different. Johnny cage, I think that's a Mortal Kombat reference, yeah? Oh, John Cage, the composer was a case. I feel the culture difference between his cow. Well, let's take that one's the example. What if I wanted to set out and do my own cage example and build that up? And I didn't have the ML background. You mentioned grabbing photos. I could figure that out. I can do some web crawling. What does it take to actually wire it up? How much ML do I need to bootstrap myself? So for identifying the person's face, the first thing here is that they're already existing models. So you have to understand what the AI is doing. So there's a fantastic article, but I think fun machine learning, which is what is facial identification actually doing. And so what actually it does is it goes in and identifies key points on the face. And then for facial verification, there's this moment where you actually realize normalized face, those key points on the face, despite how much I contrast and contour my face and how many funny faces, even if I'm Jim Carrey trying to make really fun faces, those average of all those points is somewhat uniquely identifying for me, that those would be at those distances from each other. So simply doing the AI gives you a set of points, and then you would just use basically the distance formula, which we all know. Well, if you don't, then that's okay. There's lots of libraries out there already doing it. And you do the distance formula for those points. And then that.

"To go ahead and move their AI project over to TensorFlow.js. And there's a little bit of redundancy or simplicity. But we had a bunch of test readers. People who have never done AI before and people who've never done web before. And both those audiences were very happy and the success because they felt like they were getting the AI developers thought that they were getting a good pragmatic way to see the benefits of TensorFlow.js, how to test it, how to implement how to send it out, how to check it. And the web developers were learning a good bit about what the hell is AI and what's going on here, sort of like that initial splashdown experience. I'll say if I had to put numbers on it, I'd say, 70% of the book is helping web developers get into AI 30% of it is helping AI developers really understand web. But you can slide that number around depending on what your experience is. Well, let's put ourselves in the shoes of that web developer. Let's assume they're accomplished in their craft, but all this AI ML stuff is a bit mystical to them. If you just start looking up deep learning, you're going to read about linear algebra concepts and this kind of thing, how much of that do you really need if you just want to have the hackers mentality here? Zero, no one and I wrote a wonderful article for hacker news that has it's one of my most successful articles I've ever written. And it's called machine learning zero to hero.

"Didn't get part of any counsel in terms of how to govern. He said, just a regular listen, you have no authority. This is the man who's interested in him to death. He said you have no authority, except what is given to you, my God. He doesn't do matter. I don't know. And he hit me. That God doesn't speak to his people about how to police, legislate, or regulate the behavior of others. He only speaks to us about our own behavior. Unicorn, you're the light. He said, let your light so shine. That people would see it. Even if your husband is not a believer, they have seen something, you're not responsible. For making your husband come forward to me. You live your life in such a way. I'm telling you man, I went through there. And the only thing that absolute only thing that I've seen is God talking to his people about their own behavior. Now how to police society? Now how to make the darkness conform to the light? You know, help me. I'm missing something. Here. Because God says, you are the solution. You are the answer. You keep looking out here to try to either import our export, but you are.

Go back to genesis 20 revisit that. And read it in concert with Ezekiel, chapter 16, beginning of rush 40. The reason that sodom was destroyed would ultimately lead to its demise was not the presence of wickedness. It was the absence of righteousness. Tim righteous folk, the city would have been spared. So I said, you know what I mean? The darkness is acting consistent with darkness. What makes that think that the darkness should start acting like the light? The problem is not the presence of darkness when a room is.

And these charges were always go back and forth. You know, if being a Democrat, Republican, everybody just contentious so that we despise the other group to the point that we would not associate. We would not fellowship. We would not have anything to do with those and then these charges would go back and forth. To me, like liturgy, styles of worship, you know, these things boil down to preferences. And I'll put them in the camp of Romans, chapter 14. For Paul talks about one person prefers one type of diet. And another person prefers another type of that. By the way, they both swear that their diets are based upon the word of God. So not just like..

"Share the gospel, but I'll discover another thing that was equally as important as sharing the gospel. Because his work got a girlfriend's attention is what got my classmates attention when I wasn't getting in this circle to exchange notes and I had my, I said, when I share it with them, they're not going to buck this one. Otherwise, my girlfriend, when I share it with them, I can't cheat anymore. I've discovered that that's wrong. And I have given my life to Christ. And I don't want to do anything that displeases or dishonors him. I'm going to trust him. To do that. And so I discovered that it is equally as important to show the gospel. Right. As it is to share the gospel. As a matter of fact, Peter would say, first Peter chapter three verse Roy. He would tell wives that even if their husbands are not believed, you don't get more intimate than relationship in the husband and wife. Peter told those laws that they could comport themselves in such a way that even if their husbands did not believe they could be one without a word. He said you could show the gospel to your husband. Even if you don't have the opportunity. To share the gossip. I think that's what's missing today in this toll where people are looking for when we behave the same way. When politics does to us, what politics does for the people in the world, right? When racial tension does for us, what racial tension does to people in the world. Is to miss opportunity. So even if we'd never have an opportunity to share it, if we show the love of Christ, right? That would be more powerful. And winning. And in transforming, then if we did all of the sharing in the world, but never showed it. Right. Because wait a minute, you're acting the same way, if not worse, just saying the same things and not worse. What difference has it made in your life is the reason that you're pushing it so hard are so fervently on others. Right. That brings up an interesting point, some people have made, I don't know if it's a generalization in a sense that typically the assertion is made that white evangelical conservative churches have been more concerned with what you would say is sharing the gospel and getting people to make that personal commitment, whereas African American churches are concerned with that social justice element and showing the gospel. Do you see that as, you know, as generalized as it has been and is there a middle ground, a pathway within that for both.

"New, to which the response I got from a text was, look, as I have left, so the key is if we love the way that Christ love, Christ's love, transcend it differences. So that while the people of God would reject that kiss, because he was a chief tax collector and socially unacceptable. He was a sinner. Christ. Love, transcend it. The differences. And as a result, Zach is transformed. Jesus love transcended the cultural barrier and there was a result many men of a Samaritan village dedicated their lives. So Jesus is saying, love the way that I love if you love the way that I love, that love will transcend whatever barriers that society has told us that this is how we are to comport ours. We're not supposed to have anything to do with those people. Right. Over there, right? And our Christianity permitted them. Because this church that a member led me to Christ had a policy that blacks could not attend. The school, the Barbara college that I went to. Had only recently opened their doors to allow blacks to enroll. American blacks to enroll. Since the Christianity allowed for those barriers to be up that we don't associate with or that we discriminate against, but the love of Christ, that's why I heard this debate well, but you know, the Bible doesn't condemn slavery and et cetera. Yep. You're Christianity. May allow you to adopt that posture. But Christ specifically says he came to set the campus freight. Right. So Christ's likeness would not allow what historically Christianity has a lot. And so Mike, my charge to hope him. Both tribes have even started. It's listen. A new commitment. Let's try something new. Because if we keep modeling.

He's been involved in urban ministry for nearly 40 years and in the parental choice movement for over 20 years he currently resides right now in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And I had an opportunity to talk with him, specifically about diversity, equity, and inclusion. And how he approaches that subject due to the background that he has had. And you'll hear in our interview more about his own background and where he came from and how he grew up. And how he has developed his perspectives on this. I will say that while the interview starts out as an interview about diversity, equity inclusion, it really turns and makes a very interesting turn towards the middle towards the end about what is the responsibility of the Christian, when it comes to engaging society, engaging culture. How do we do that? What has God calling us to do? And so I just enjoyed the conversation. It's enlightening to me and I hope you will as well. So please take a listen and enjoy. Well, thanks for joining me. I appreciate you coming on and just being able to join with me and just kind of share some of your story. It would be great if you could just start out by sharing a little bit of your background and your story. I mentioned to you before that I had the opportunity as we had met before and you had referred to your opportunity to be at the Brooklyn tabernacle. I got a chance to watch that. And I just was, you know, intrigued and. Blown away, I guess you could say by just hearing your story and the very unique perspective you bring to this whole issue of diversity, equity, inclusion. So it would be great if you could just maybe share a little bit of that to give some background and context for how we're coming into this conversation. Okay. Well, okay, but thank you brother Jeff. I appreciate this opportunity to be with you to share with your audience and to hopefully bring.

The History Of Martin Micronius

"On this episode, five minutes in Church history. We are returning to the reformation and talking about a reformer that you might have never heard of before Martin Micronesia's he was born in fifteen, twenty, three engagement and Flanders when I hear the word gant or the place can't always think of the altarpiece that beautiful painting. So Martin Mike Kronius is Dutch. It appears that he was a medical doctor and studied medicine, and there's even testimony that he published medical works. But then he got intrigued by the reformation and became a reformer he studied at Basel at Strasbourg, and then in fifteen forty nine, he went to London there in London he became associated with John Alaska this was the Polish reformer who also ended up in London And he and Martin my Kronius and a few others were intent on establishing a little Geneva in London. This would be a place for a European reformers to be in. London, they were not Lutherans. Anglicans they were reformed and they were trying to carve out a place for themselves. Well, he lasco published a few works to help for the liturgy and in the work by Martin. Is was published in London in fifteen, fifty four. He says this on the Ministry of the word. No church gathering is ever held among us in which the church is not taught to some extent from God's word in order for it to be edified, admonished and comforted, and for very good reasons, the scriptures are not expounded in sermons on is located parentheses as in the practice among the papists. Instead we take some book of the Bible either from the old or the New Testament, and we expound it from the beginning to the end in all sermons. We successfully read from this book as much as can be edifying, -Ly and properly expounded and explained within one hour. If necessary the ministers of the word are also admonished not to go too much beyond the scope of their text in their preaching rather they should as much as possible take all their teaching admonishment exhortation rebuke in comfort from the present text. So there you have it, you stick with the text, but you also see that this sermon was an hour long. So these Dutch as we know are tough the service that he also was trying to get established. There at this church in London, we not only have the sermon. In fact, it would start off with a prayer prayer for elimination. Then there'd be the Lord's prayer. Then they'd read a psalm. Then they'd read a scripture that the sermon was from and then you'd have the sermon the hour long sermon. Then they would pray for strength and by that, they mean to live out the meaning of that sermon and to live out the application of that sermon. then. They would read the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments. Yes. Every Sunday reading through the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a brief admonishment related to the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a confession of sin than there would be a prayer of forgiveness and then there would be a warning to the impertinent those that were not willing to confess their sins. Then, they'd recite the apostles creed than there would be prayers for intercession of the congregation than the Lord's prayer. Then another psalm, then a- benediction and that was the service that Martin my Kronius was trying to establish there in. London. Well, all of these efforts came to a halt when Edward the six died and he was replaced by his half sister. Mary. And you know this is the time of Marian exiles and One of those exiles was Martin my Kronius he ended up in Norton in Germany, which is on the North Sea. while. He was there. He held some debates with Meno Simon's yes of the Mennonites and he also published his catechism in fifteen, fifty five in Dutch and it was there in Norton that he died fifteen, fifty nine well, that is Martin, my Kronius, the Dutch reformer in London.

S. C. and while parents are pleading guilty and not guilty in what is happening to the students wrapped up in the scandal none of them have been charged with crimes but they also face consequences in other ways for more on how the students have been affected we spoke to Kate Taylor she's a reporter at The New York Times in some cases he got into college already or take out of their colleges or have their initiative mission revoked which amounts to pretty much the same thing some of them had to take attention from college if you hadn't gotten into college at all at the time the parents were arrested me Turkish charges were brought in many cases were able to get into college or have ended up at a much laugh elite college than they were aiming for and while their parents were using a live it means try to get them at the college we don't know where they might have gotten in on their own accord if they had it all happened so Michelle Gant have her older daughter for instance he was angling to get her into your hygiene and that didn't happen she not only blushed rejected from USC they told her you can never apply again so she is now apparently going to community college so they've really had their lives upended and of course a lot of people are asked why should we feel sorry for these kids they're still very privileged and that is true at the same time I think for any young person to have your life so completely rewritten due to circumstances in other cases out of their control mostly kids didn't know what their parents were delaying you would be very difficult to cope with and it clearly gonna be something that they're gonna be processing for years to come when this was going down ms Jenna has two daughters were in junior and senior year of high school so they got banned from things like graduation and prom NEO for a young kid those things are very important not to mention people talk kids talk yes you were barred from going to school at all the school made a really interesting decision and because the school wouldn't talk to me I don't know why they did that but they said that the girl had to complete their work from home for the rest of your day couldn't come to school at all they were barred from campus which is obviously a really extreme measure to take a stand out for years said that the girls were shunned by friends and teachers so it sounds like a lost their whole social and academic world and the younger daughter ended up transferring to local public school it's a tough position for the schools as well obviously the colleges you rescind their acceptance letters all that but at the high school everybody wants to take a tough stand on cheating so I mean everybody is in a tough position when it comes to something like this what about some of the higher profile students involved obviously the list we have men and her husband William H. Macy only Felicity Huffman was in danger here she's already pled guilty went in and out of jail after just a very short time what happened to their daughter holder daughter who's a hasty we haven't had paid someone could tamper with and get her a higher score she was really hoping to get into killing our kids not firing actress apparently she had proceeded to the final round of auditions virtually art two days after her mother was arrested she flew out to New York to do the final edition after she landed she got an email saying you're no longer welcome to audition and her father William H. Macy described to the judge in a letter he wrote at the time of his life sentence saying that their daughter called them from the airport in hysterics saying please do something please do something apparently there was nothing they could do so she hasn't ended up going to college there she's still pursuing acting have gotten from bulls obviously really emotional when you get a calls on something like that so far there's been twenty parents including miss admin that have pleaded guilty and all this there's fifteen other parents including actress Lori Loughlin who have pled not guilty and they're going to appear in trial Lori Loughlin obviously one of the most high profile ones and all of this still yet to go to court and figure out exactly what's happening that's kind of the big fish everybody's waiting for she paid about between her husband five hundred thousand dollars for their daughters how was that bin for them and then also for Lori Loughlin's two daughters the daughters will put you at U. S. he ran we're looking at our husbands were charged in this case what we know is that they are no longer a student at USC we don't know if they were expelled or what exactly happened and it's not really clear what her older daughters giving her younger daughter Olivia jade who left the facility ata for library and influence circle for all staff wants to continue that career she was silent on social media for about eight months and that she resurfaced I need to in December with a very awkward somewhat painful to watch video seamlessly with bank and she really wished she could talk about what happened but legally she wasn't allowed to but she really messed her fans and it seems to have gotten largely negative reactions on YouTube and she's only posted another video since then so it's not clear if her career advancement there is going to

"By now I have to assume. Most listeners are aware of deep fakes. Not just because we've covered deep fakes on this show before but if you show an interest for anything anything related to data and or skepticism you must know about the advances in technology that have been pretty impressive in creating videos that were not actual captures. There's a reality. Most people's first introduction to this idea was the video with comedian Jordan peele effectively puppeteer in the then president Barack Obama talking about out the dangers of deep fake technology. Maybe for some of you your first introduction was a bit more. NSF W and with the advent of any technology like doc deep fakes which just to be totally clear as the ability to kind of mask a different face onto a body. That doesn't belong to that face. Or just otherwise edit the content of identity a photo will these technologies are very much coming of age. Interestingly you never hear too much about the let's say positive or anonymity angle of this. You know someone who wants to release something to the world but not have their face identified could look like a real person person but obscure it in some way or let's go directly to the princess lay appearance in the recent star wars films deep fakes or not all bad even though they can like anything certainly be used maliciously so with any malicious tool the first questions. Really well can. We detect usage of that tool. Is there a categorical way. We can identify video. US fake or not fake and like all good questions. The answer is maybe I read good deal research on ways of detecting this one of the ways is it was sort of interesting to me. Initially was a researcher that in the case of very high fidelity cameras was able to detect blood pressure in the images by really amplifying amplifying certain parts of the signal you could notice subtle changes related to I guess the temperature of the human body. You're just things were we radiate as beings and and the deep fake systems you know these things developed based on generative adversarial networks things that have a discriminator in generator that our adversary competing competing to see who can make the best forgeries and who can spot the forgeries will these systems. They sometimes take a bit of a shortcut. They don't notice things like the subtle presence of blood pressure or as we covered on the show last year. That something interesting like the blinking of a face was not something Ganz out of box did and that on the surface surface that seems like a great detection technology as my guest in that episode will remind. You only took a little bit of time until the forgers were able to incorporate that into their systems and start producing deep fakes. which in fact did blink ultimately the detection of deep fake seems to be sort of maybe a bit of an asymptotically failed strategy? Gee if I went outside right now and I don't know set fire to my neighbor's house. If you filmed me doing that you would have a video of me setting fire into my neighbor's house which I'm sure why me jail Wednesday. That video was just a collection of bits of information in computers are getting quite good at generating very specialized sequences of bits of information. Seeing is no longer believing at least when you're seeing is delivered on Youtube or an MP before file or the equivalent and that's why video and images have always been a little bit curious to me. There is such a wide potential space of possible images in videos. That could be shown. We're going to talk a lot this season about gant's and fooling images and all these sorts of topics especially as they relate to our general theme. You of model interpret ability but I thought the best way to kick this off might be to talk about what fighting chances we have. If I'm right in fighting faces an asymptotically Alex's losing battle well we might not yet be at the point of inflection. So while they're still chance in the spirit of Sarah Connor maybe we can fight back a little bit against. It's the machines.

Lack of media diversity an effect of slavery, BuzzFeed beauty director

"As the beauty director of digital media, giant BuzzFeed, essence, can't make sure it's content is inclusive and sensitive helping to balanced representation and reflect diversity growing up in the southern US state of Georgia. She recalls that she was surrounded by people who always validating, her as a black woman, but it was only later, she said, in an interview with you a news that she realized how underrepresented people of color were in the media, highlighting lack of diversity, as a direct result of the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with MS Gant told Anacom, what media needs to do to change. The narrative my main message was around representation because I work in media, and I think the lack of representation and diversity as we see it in media, whether it's like, TV magazines movies, whatever it is, is that wrecked result of, you know, the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with just a lack of representation the lack of diversity at every level. Well, in media from people behind the cameras that people on the camera to people writing stories, and telling narratives, and so my main message was that, you know, that matters in the media landscape because media such an important tool for education and for helping to change narratives and so change norms, and to help redistribute power. So we were speaking about the facts of slavery today. What do you think it's the importance of still learning about that period of history in the present days, I think it's something that we always have to educate ourselves about it just can't be lost as such a huge part of our history. And you can't ignore it. And you can't act like it didn't happen because it did. And people are still suffering here in the US and all around the world as a result of it. I think that it does a disservice to people who were victims of slavery when you act like that part of our history doesn't exist. So in order to honor them in order to make sure that they're. Our lives were not lost in vain, and that their suffering was not in vain. We have to keep talking about it, and we have to be realistic and acknowledging that we're still paying the price for it even today. And I think that it's important also because we have to do better and it, how it reminds us of mistakes that we've made so that we can hopefully, correct them so he worked for BuzzFeed, can you tell me a little bit about your work, and what specifically do do in order to change the stereotypes that you feel that are still into society, and especially in the fashion world, for sure? So I work at BuzzFeed, I've been there about four years, and I am the beauty director there now. And I guess a short bulletin list of what I do is really helped to shape the tone and language around content, especially as it relates to women's lifestyle and diversity. So I try to make sure that the content is inclusive and sensitive, my role in helping to change their you'll type. It's just by normalizing. Representation and diversity. I think that those things become a thing quote unquote when we don't see them often. And that's why you know, it's such a big deal when there's an all black cast for movie because it's not something that, you see, so often, even though you see all white casts for movies or it's a big deal. When you see a black woman on the cover of a magazine, because traditionally, we have not been on the cover of magazines. We've not been heralded as the standards of beauty. And I think that through my work in acknowledging that and trying to do my part to combat that I try to just normalize that and normalize black people's place in media to normalize our seat at the table, without always a disclaimer, without always saying, you know, here's this beautiful black transgender woman, and here's her story is just like, no, here's this beautiful amazing, awesome human being. And here's her story. Sorry, because I've never opens a magazine or watched TV and saw disclaimer, when it came to white people, it's just what it is. It's the norm. It's the standard. And I'm just trying to make you know, other people apart of that Norman standard just as readily do feel that it's changing somehow or do still feel like it's a lot of just covert. I do. I, I don't know if I believe it's changing for my own sanity and wanting to believe that, you know, we are progressing that humanity is progressing, but I do see small changes. I think that beliefs in how we feel about people, and how we judge people is so ingrained in that own, we're so conditioned to, to judge and make assumptions and treat people, a certain way and there has to be a conscious on learning and desire to unlearn those things. But and I think that is like the part that takes the longest because it's really, really hard to unlearn what she's been taught for so long, but I do see changes in just the up the uprising of black people in the space in media, particularly and the arts and just the unapologetic nece and the creation of their own opportunities to create their own narrative. So we're no longer depending on white. Filmmakers in Hollywood were no long. Depending on white women's lifestyle publications we're creating our own as we've seen with, you know, people like Ryan Kugler overdue for nay, and shonda rhimes and people at a much more micro level like myself, and Julie Wilson essence magazine. We're seeing it at every single level. So in that regard, I will say that I think it's, you know, getting better because we're at a point now where we are empowered enough to start creating some of those changes that we wanna see do you have any personal story that you would like to share that you felt that inspired you throughout your life, or that made you follow this path, or this passion of yours for sure. I don't know if it's like much of a story, but I think just my own experience. I'm from Georgia. I'm from the south and I grew up and black church in the south, and I will say that a black church, especially in the south every Sunday is where you will see some of the best beauty. And fashion that you've ever seen in your lives from the makeup to the hair to the big church hats. And so I've just always been around that representation, and I can honestly say that, that impacted me in such a positive way and made me feel so confident about myself, because the woman that I was surrounded by who looks like me were very confident, and they invested in what they looked like and how they carry themselves and so it gave me this confidence and to a point that I was somewhat unaware of all the bias until I got a little bit older because I was just so rounded, so heavily by people who were affirming invalidated me and my existence as a black woman, and then, you know, my grandmother was a hairdresser. She had a shop attached to the back of her house. My oldest sister is now a hairdresser and owns her own salon in Augusta Georgia, and my parents were very good about keeping media and publications around the house that reflected us as a family. So we watch TV shows that had black. Families appearance always had essence and ebony magazines and the house. So I was always constantly seeing reflections of who I was that significantly impacted the way that I navigate throughout the world. I don't walk with my head down. I wasn't afraid to go after opportunities. I wasn't afraid to have big dreams because that's what I saw people doing around me, who looks exactly like me. And now that I'm older. I'm so grateful for those opportunities and just that experience that I had because I see the benefit, and I and I'm reaping the reward of that. And so now it's become such an intentional part of my own career, you know, talks about it a little bit earlier, but even getting into media and women's lifestyle from a far it can seem very shallow or superficial, but is so much deeper than that for me. It's not about cosmetics. Although I love those things. It's not about fashion. It's about having a seat at the table and being able to be in a position of power to change the narrative, and to change the converse. Station and to expand it and to call people out when they get it wrong and says show, you know, girls who are dark skin, whether they're in the US, whether they're in Africa, whether they're in India that they are beautiful, even though they are left out of the beauty standard and they're left out of the narrative, and that they don't need to bleach their skin. It's, you know, being physical representations also allows me just by simply being there in existing. I'm able to show other girls who look like me that you don't have to straighten your hair if you want to you can because you're the authority on your own body and what you look like. But if you want to keep your hair in its natural state, no matter how tight the curls are or how kinky they are you can do that, and it should just as beautiful, and you don't need to change. There's nothing wrong with how you are physically made up. I think all of those things have definitely played a role into just my conviction and making sure that I get those messages across you were speaking to the use if you could just give them one. Advice to go through life and feel secure and confident of what they are, what would that be? I think that if I had to give the students advice or any young person advice is that your enough, and I know that, you know, we hear that so many in so many different ways all the time. But it's so true you're enough. You have everything you were born with everything that you need in this world to survive and make it through, and I'm not talking about material things. I'm just talking about your components as a human being you're intelligent. You're beautiful. And you know, your perspective and your experience is what makes you special. So when we talk about intelligence and smarts, it's not always like book, smart like you need to do what you have to do in order to get through school. And that's very important. But are you socially aware? How smart are you about your own self and your own abilities? And your own bias sees how, you know, do you talk to other people who don't look like you do you firm those relationships? So you figure out are do you talk to other people and ask about their experiences. Those are the things that make you smart and that make you sensitive and conscious. And so, I would just say, as long as you have the as long as you are able to do those things, then you, you'll have everything that you need to navigate through the world. So don't ever feel like just because you're not reflected in on TV are in a magazine that you're that you're not worthy. Are that you don't have what you need that you don't have the essential tools that you need to make it throughout the world because you definitely do.

Dont spend it all at once: Pakistan and the IMF

"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. In the west there seems to be a push towards vegetarianism and veganism, but that's just a tiny blip in a bigger upward trend in meeting around the world, that's bad news for the environment. But in a narrower sense, it's good for people. And a century ago. One in eight girls born in France was named Marie now that number is one in one hundred demographers love, these kinds of trends, they reveal much more than census data do about. How France is secularize ING and globalizing. But I. Focused on is poised to accept a hefty bailout from the International Monetary Fund. Again, the over indebted country has just sought it's twenty second loan from the F. In a speech while opening a hospital last week, prime minister, Imran Khan, laid the blame on his predecessors. Maimed Pakistan's economic predicament on the previous government. Fingered the amount of debt at the previous government has racked up. Simon cox. Economists emerging marketer. And he pointed out to Pakistanis that fixing this problem would require some hardship in the short term. And he'll so reassured them that Pakistan was in reality of rich country. And the things would get better eventually, and how have done is responded to news of this loan. So there's some dismay some disgruntlement little bit of surprise Iman Khan doing campaigning for the elections last year said he wouldn't turn to the IMF. Although most economists knew that it would be inevitable. He also made large claims for instituting a new kind of welfare state in Pakistan that would take better care of the poor. So that sits at odds with the austerity that Buxton is now going to have to endure, although when should say that the IMF program is attempting to make some provision for the poor. It's certainly been causing a big stir in parliament and the opposition in particular have been accusing the government of selling Pakistan out accusing Pakistan of allowing dictate terms. One particular point of contention is. From this Imran Khan shook up his economic team of the last couple of weeks. Now, the head of the central Bank is a Pakistan national, but also a former official at the IMF. So some critics feel day with this. Right. So let let's roll back a little bit here. How did Pakistan's economy get into such a mess in the first place so Pakistan's been a regular customer? If you like the IMF, and it took a loan twenty thirteen which actually went quite well. And so around twenty sixteen the economy look to have stabilized, but from then on the previous government ran some unsustainable policies in particular the exchange rate to expensive which the competitiveness of puck stan's exports, and they also ran two large budget deficit. So it's too much spending not enough tax collecting, so the big export import Gant, and as a big revenue and expenditure gap for the government the economy, we should say grew pretty well during that pair. But it had these two unsustainable gaps and eventually investors cease to be willing to finance these gaps and the economists after then live with them Enes. So it sounds like some kind of intervention was was needed, and I know with with Pakistan as a as you say regular customer of the I MEF why are so many Pakistanis opposed to to their presence their their their lending. This is a common problem that the IMF aces countries pursue unsustainable. Economic policies. They live beyond their means. Now, the IMF at that point will offer alone to ease this transition, and so the lending will come with conditions attached. So the lending is misused to just by more time. Now, those conditions often quite painful, they often require a cuts in spending increase in taxes often evaluation of the exchange rate, which makes imports more expensive. So none of that is very popular. The question is whether if the I'm wasn't there with the situation even worse and typically answer's yes. Well, it can't be the case that can only turn to the IMF for money or they're not other lenders. Yes. So what sort of different this time? If you like is there an array of other lenders that the Pakistani authorities have leaned on Saudi Arabia has given quite a lot of money and also allowed Pakistan to defer payments on oil, the United Arab Emirates has stepped in and also China, of course, and for while the government sought a could make do with these friends they wouldn't have to deal with the F as well. But the money came short, basically, fills about half the gap, and if I had to turn to the IMF the other half, and how likely is it then on this sort of twenty second go round as Pakistan to actually stick to what the suggests this time around. So it's somewhat unlikely. No one particular to cut Pakistan off, you know, it's a country. That's in a very unstable geopolitical region is the country that has also of its own internal instability issues country of two hundred million people with nuclear weapons, and you know, one of the friends had in the past. Although friend is a strong word is the United States, which has provided an awful lot to economic and military assistance, and so often in previous deals with the F the IMF requested things that Pakistan has then vodka reluctantly partially agreed to and typically the IMF, let's it off at issues waiver said it says the conditions that we attached alone have been waived, and that's become a sort of a game that gets played between the two sides. Now, this is a new government. It's got a good team in place. Good economic team in place. They have their own reputations at stake. So this probably a higher probability this time that in previous occasion. But I'd be surprised if every item in this agreement gets into, but Pakistan doesn't see the IMF as a sort of lender of last resort just lender wondering the degree to which its existence, and this, you know, giving the money, and you can take the advice if you like kind of practice disincentivize is good fiscal discipline. So the IMF often finds itself in a difficult position. It doesn't want to be held responsible for triggering a crisis. It doesn't want to finally cut a country often send it into the abyss won't come think of other examples like Argentina where the became heavily invested in the success of its program and ended up throwing good money after bad an impact fans case it often turns a blind eye to foot-dragging by the authorities or only partial implementation of the conditions. The IMF has asked for besides because it doesn't want to create instability and cause trouble. And you're right. That does create. Inevitable physical game between the two sides. And we'll see how that plays out again with this latest land Buxton? Thank you very much Simon. Thank you very much. My pleasure.

Benjamin Netanyahu set for record 5th term in Israel

Benjamin Netanyahu set for record 5th term in Israel

"Are few countries whose elections command widespread international attention and very few such countries as small as Israel approximately the size of El Salvador with a population roughly comparable to that of Papua New Guinea, but Israel since its foundation in nineteen forty eight has become accustomed to being a story in which the whole world is invested. Israeli elections are never straightforward not once has any party won a majority on its own and government is always by coalition. And the this week's election was close. It allowed a narrow path to continuing power for Benjamin Netanyahu who now prepares to serve a fifth term as Israel's prime minister Netanyahu is by now for better and for worse. A very well known quantity. Many have interpreted his reelection as an indicator of a gathering right would drift by an increasingly uncompromising country. But and this would be a first where is. Rayle is concerned. Is it really that simple? This is the foreign desk. That he does not in buddy. Now represents all Rayleigh. He is elected prime minister. He knob in related for fister, certainly means a lot. But if you get this is what he's trying to do when we we accept that. Whether we're falling observers always Riley with thing along with him. Would completely expected. But what was not really expected, and what's is a little bit. Weary and problematic with Russ tinian. It was the right wing victory to that percentage. Israel has always been self conscious of its image around the world, and Israel has always known that it has one huge friend, which is America and San Yahoo. Who was not in great terms with the previous American president. And all of a sudden now, you have Trump is president and is released like Israel has been Netanyahu's position has been vindicated. You're listening to the foreign desk with me Andrew Miller on today's show on joined by Dr Dali Shenlin and show Feffer dully Shenton is a public opinion expert and strategic consultant who joins us from Tel Aviv and show Feffer is a journalist and author of BB the turbulent life and times of Benjamin Netanyahu and chill joins us from Jerusalem. Dalia? Is there a consistent reason? Do you think why the people who have voted for Netanyahu vote for him? If you were to ask his most loyal voters. What is it that appeals to about Netanyahu? What would be their response people who are stable supporters among them. Some of them are longtime traditional Likud voters Likud is one of a few parties left in Israel that has a traditional vote going back generations, certainly back to nineteen seventy seven and some of the people who vote for Likud just continue because it's part of their identity to vote Likud. But in addition to that, of course, they support Netanyahu. And I think it's a little bit of a miscarriage. Irritation. You hear frequently in this election that it's all about Netanyahu's personality people really support his policy those who have voted for him. They support the fact that he has not moved ahead on his Palestinian negotiations in a way that would lead to a Palestinian state. They believed that he is restrained when it comes to wars and escalations and doesn't always jump into wars and most of all the love his foreign policy. And the reason why new people voted for him is very similar to the reason why some of the supporters vote for him, maybe without the kind of long-term identity based reason for supporting we could before we look at Walt Benjamin Netanyahu's fifth term might entail, Israel, we should examine the likelihood of him actually getting to serve all how big a threat to his immediate political future of these corruption charges still looming against him there, quite a major threat. There was through cozy three investigations which have been. Wrapped up by the police with recommendations to indict him for bribery. The attorney general has accepted most of those recommendations and ready issued his official warning that he intends to for bribery and one case in for fraud and breach attrition to others. It's still has the right to a pre trial hearing, which will take some time Pepsi few months, but one that is over and assuming his lowest fail to convince the attorney general's every case, and we all the care has been taken into sending these I find it hard. I think it's not happening this we'll be we'll be facing charges in cold within some six twelve months. So if he's threatening the jeopardy of his victim just to fuller that up and Joel has there been any discussion at all of how he can hope to govern in any meaningful sense while actually appearing in court defending himself against what are quite serious charges. Well, there's been a great deal of discussion about that foot for quite a while. Now, that's now saying in the open that I don't believe that charges will be we'll be pressed because I will prove in the hearings that has nothing in these charges. They hasn't privately that if the charges are brought in. He intends to to stay with this kind of being prime minister despite having to pairing now, another people in Israel, including some of coalition members believe at that point. I it would it would be ridiculous permitted to remain. There's no precedent for Israeli law is does not stipulate that he has to resign. But there's there's widespread disbelief that he could hold on after that, then he'll try and who knows he's he's defiant. We had a team in other cases. Maybe it's maybe it will succeed as well. But it is really the main obstacle facing. And the biggest question Mark moving moving over his future. Dolly one difference in this election. Obviously was the emergence of a new position alliance, or at least a new opposition figurehead, which is the the the former idea chief general bennigan's, do we get a sense yet of whether Gaunt's intends to stick around as an opposition figure. And if he did whether he would be regarded. As a credible implausible one by Israeli voters. Oh, divi- divide generally tend to take the view that you had your shot and you failed and you are therefore done our bike to enter that. But I I do want to augment by. I response about why people support on Yahoo to follow up on the issue of the indictments just briefly, we should point out that I think I've heard a lot of people who were not planning on voting the cooed before. But said they changed their minds to vote Likud because they felt the indictments are either overblown exaggerated or agree with Netanyahu's own a narrative that there is some sort of a collusion or conspiracy. If you will between the forces of the left, the media, and they are pressuring the the judicial law enforcement system, and I think we need to take that into account. In addition to the issues of people who were simply supportive Netanyahu everybody who thinks that he is guilty. And then he does represent a certain form of corrupt governance and has been self serving. And we'll do anything to stay in power and represents the corruption of our institutions. Those are the people who supported Ganz and other members of the opposition. But I think that Ganz his party in relation to your second question really got the votes of a wide swath of people from the Israeli center. Many of them from the Israeli left and probably some from the Israeli right which seems to have lost three seats as a block many of them coming from other parties, but some of them clearly wanting to replaces on Yahoo by supporting Ganz now will he stay around. There's no way to know Israel. We have to remember that he is positioned himself as a centrist party and Israel. Does not have historically a great history with centrist parties, they tend to stick around for one or two cycles before kind of diminishing and then sometimes even collapsing. So I think it's not only about Gant's, but about the role for these kinds of parties that try to avoid taking a strong position on some of the most divisive issues in Israel, particularly, of course, the Israeli Palestinian conflict. And then we'll see if either he continues as a politician or whether his centrist party, which is. Strange coalition of three other party, three parties altogether. Whether they can see eye to eye on policies enough to keep them together. As a party until Bergamo McNeil who has worked I think coin to seed you asleep both in Israel and over seas to portray himself as the embodiment of the Israeli nation. And for that reason, certainly when I think is very looked at from overseas. People tend to regard Israel through the prism of Benyamin Netanyahu. We're going to talk in the second part of the show about how Netanyahu operates in the world and about how he plans to operate in the world. But when that view goes back the other way when people look at Israel and think of Benjamin Netanyahu. What are they not seeing what part of Israel that is still alive and vigorous now, he's not being represented in the government or the character of its prime minister. Well, yeah. I mean. Agrees with with this. But I think ace Pat to characterize the election as having been a referendum on the suit the busy for offense. And if you look at the numbers, this was a you're you're quoting from London where the issue of a referendum is still very much alive. Two and a half year after Brexit. This was a fifty three forty seven results. So forty seven percents of his railings, despite that's overpowering charisma, very successful campaign, and you just make ten years of successful governments in in terms of economy and relatives communist real and improving foreign relations despite everything that people thinking that's forty seven percent voted against him. Which is I think quite an impressive numbers almost half of the country. So is not represent Israel. If you look at their own party votes than he does certainly and did they could property which they needed for so long, but the view that he and buddy. This is what he's trying to do. And when we we accept that. Whether we're falling observers always Riley's where basically playing along with him

Smart homes are all the rage. But do renters have the right to Adum apartment from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Martin homes. Full of connected devices aren't just for single family homes. And if you're a renter, you might get a smart apartment, whether you want one or not back in January security researcher, and blogger Leslie car heart got a letter from her landlord saying, they're building was getting internet connected door locks and her response was no, thank you. She wrote about it. And ended up finding out that this is a big business. There are multiple quote, smart, apartment, vendors and property managers really want this tech, here's car heart. So there's a lot of good reasons for implementing this technology. First of all, it makes it easier for rental properties to manage maintain the units, especially when they're unoccupied they could do things like monitor for water leaks. They can also make a added convenience for their users which is a good sell for potential residents. You can change your temperature from your phone. You can get grant access to people when you're not home and know, who's accessing your apartment when I'm so there's a lot of benefits there in terms of convenience and also the ab-. Ability for apartment management companies to require less staff to do things like show apartments. All right. And then how about the cons ranging from actual security physical security to privacy. So I often tell people that in terms of security things can be quick cheap secure. But not all three at once. And in this case, the industry is asking asking for this to be implemented quickly and cheaply and consumers really need to be asking for security here for multiple reasons. First of all, you're sending a tremendous amount of data about the way that you live whose home when your home when you go to work, you're sending that out over the internet to multiple parties, and you would extensively want to send that securely. And also, the lock, of course, is granting access to your apartment. So you want to be certain that nobody malicious can grant access to your apartment in a way that unlike breaking into a window or breaking a lock off a door is not really easily detectable how much I know. This isn't your specific area of. Expertise, but how much do you expect this to become a conversation about rights will attendant in the future be able to demand the right to a dumb apartment, and it isn't my area of expertise. I'm not a lawyer. But while I was investigating this. I didn't find any precedent for issues like this. I don't think much has been done. This is all so new and it's coming down the pipe so fast, where did you land in terms of feeling okay? About moving forward with this. I'm buying a house, and yeah. And that's not my threat model, isn't everybody's? I'm a security researcher. I catch bad hackers for a living. And the last thing I need in my life is a system that could be monitored or tampered with by one of the people who I sent to prison. Other people will feel differently, and they have very very different throttles. But it's important to think about these issues because a lot of people don't have a choice whether to rent or not to rent, Leslie, car heart is a security researcher. She wrote a follow up this week to her original post saying she's been working with companies to help deploy apartment. Tech securely. And she'll be speaking at a real estate conference called multifamily tech and entrepreneurship next week in San Francisco. And now for some related links other than the fact that there's an entire conference on this topic, which I guess is not surprising. There's a conference for everything it seems like connected buildings are hot conversation in the property management world, and there's kind of the usual tension for tenants and owners between convenience and security one survey on a site called multifamily executive dot com. Said fifty percent of renters would actually pay more rent in exchange. For smart home features like kilos, entry locks doorbell cameras, or smart, thermostats and speaking of our robot overlords. Remember that cute little social robot named Gebo? It was kind of the precursor to Alexa, and the Google home gadgets. It was a robotic assistant with a really friendly little face, then it could dance and fleece it.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. By now, if I'm doing my job, right? You should kind of get how digital advertising works companies collect information about you like where you live or your age what you buy online. What websites you visit and much more? And they use that information to target you with ads that they think you will like so you will buy their stuff. But you may not know that this is also happening on television. It's called addressable advertising. And it means your cable or satellite. TV provider is showing you ads on your TV that your neighbor might not see depending on who you are. And what you're into right now only a small number of the ads you see on television are targeted ads, but it's a Volvo fast because the money is good. So the cable companies or satellite company, so whether you have Comcast or spectrum or direct TV, you have a registered account with them. So they have your name. They have your address your phone number your Email address. They have all these data points. And then they're able to connect. Those to third party data providers who might also have data on you. And they do it in on my way. But basically they're able to connect the dots. To know. Roughly what your household income is whether you have a car, how old your car is. And in some cases, if you have an internet service bundled with your TV service. They can also track your browsing as well. What websites you visit? If you have a cell phone service. That's also connected. They can know where you're going out in the world and be able to take all that information into account to target. You with ads on TV how much more money can cable companies make I assume they can charge more right for an adjustable TV ad than engineer one. Oh, yeah. So they can charge. You know about ten times more for these kinds of ads because they can be somewhat more effective, or at least more pinpointed for the and so if advertisers pain ten dollars for a general ad that will just run during the basketball games, everyone. Who's watching the basketball game? They can alternatively pay say one hundred dollars to only show it to people in certain markets who have a certain household income and certain other interests levels. So there's a bit more efficiency, you're less waste with it. But it's more expensive to do that. What are the challenges around this technology because I could imagine this narrow in which you know, if there are multiple people in a household. It's just not going to be that accurate like how well does this addressable advertising, actually, even work? Yes. That's what it's largely at the household level, especially because they don't know if there are multiple people in household, which of those people is watching a show at any given time. That's why it's things like is. This a household where there are kids or is this a household where they own a car what kind of car is. This is this a household that rents or buys how many people are in this house whole, and then, you know, demographic information to age gender of the people live in household. Tim Peterson is a senior reporter at digital with address.

What internet search is like behind China's Great Firewall

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by. Indeed, are you hiring with? Indeed, you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash marketplace. That's indeed dot com slash marketplace. Look into internet life behind the great firewall of China from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. This week activist shareholders in alphabet, the parent company of Google spoke out against development of Google Dragonfly. That's the internal codename for a project reportedly working on a censored search engine for China. We hear a lot about web censorship in China. But how does it work? What's it like to use? It we called marketplace. Correspondent Jennifer pack in Shanghai before we officially started. The interview Jennifer wanted to check something with Bing, the one US search engine that operates in China. Yeah. Being it wasn't going. Well, well, you're experiencing what it's like to have the internet in China, which is that I have to switch between turning on and off VPN. She takes forever. And now I have to restart. My computer Jennifer has reported from inside China for years. She says censorship is getting stronger. It used to be that. If you had steered clear of what? We call the three t's Tiananmen Tabet. Anti warn talking about the sensitive topics about independence or the protests that happen TNN. Then you're pretty much safe. But increasingly this list has gotten longer and longer and it changes day by day. So in some instances, if it's banned search term, you will get a message that says sorry, you were trying to access something that is in violation of Chinese law. So you know that it happened. But there are other instances where you just get a limited number of search results. But you don't even really know that it's been censored do Chinese people, even call it censorship. I mean, that's what we would call a here. But like when you're living it, how do you refer to it. I don't think that the majority of people in China realize that what they're getting is censored because remember their media years also censored, and I have to say the internet works, very fast. If you are restricting yourself to just Chinese tools searching in. The Chinese language within China. The problem happens when you're trying to access web sites outside or you're trying to access Chinese language websites, which have sensitive information negative information about mainland China. That's when it becomes a bit more difficult to access up. But does not completely shut off because sometimes people will say, well, I can still get it. There are tools and ways to get around it. But the purpose of censorship in China is not to stop all information from coming in. It's just to stop the average person in China to make it difficult enough for them to access these websites that they just eventually give up those sensitive surge have any kind of economic impact. And I mean like does it lead people to make less informed decisions about business or like household finance business and economic news and information used to be quite open and for business journalists it used to be very open as well. But increasingly they're facing a lot of pressure to. Not report the news because now economics has become political right with the US China trade tensions. And all of that, Jennifer pack is marketplace's China correspondent I asked her how she gets through the great firewall online. She wouldn't say didn't want the government to catch on and block her work arounds. I'm jed Kim. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.
