Fresh update on "general motors" discussed on Code Story

"Has been a family man for 20 plus years now. His kids are older in their 20s, which he finds amazing. He's been in tech for most of his career, but when he started out professionally, he wanted to be a chef. When he was 13, he wanted to attend culinary school, but then things changed, obviously, but he still cooked often, dabbling in stir fry and barbecue. After selling his prior company, which was heavy in the broadcast media space, Kirk ended up at General Motors. He started to learn about media data and the value of getting the media data into computer vision algorithms. 5 years later, he realized that no one had created the platform to manage this yet. And he got started building it on nights and weekends. First, for podcast discovery. This is the creation story of unstructured data. Basically we call it an unstructured data platform. So there's the kind of term of a modern data stack for kind of SQL based data that's out there today and there's a lot of great companies, 5 train and snowflake and all these have just managing a kind of classic data warehouses and kind of classic SQL based data. And this is really a parallel universe of all the other kind of data from video to audio to 3D, that we provided data platform to companies really make better use of that data, get business insights from it, and really also make it valuable for running ML machine learning on that data as well. So it's a pretty big swing. I mean, we're going soup to nuts with all the way from the UI to a really powerful platform. But I had had the idea for it really about 5 years ago originally. I had had a previous company for about ten, 12 years in the media entertainment space. So I was in broadcast video, sold to all the major broadcasters and really learned a lot about scalable file processing and metadata management and just built we bootstrapped it, and so it was really learned it from the ground up. And but the end result was the content the video was for Netflix and YouTube and things like that. And so it was for eyeballs. But about 5 years ago, I ended up at General Motors after selling my company and was starting to learn about all the other uses of this kind of media data. 3D LIDAR data video from the vehicles, things like that. And there were so many parallels of, I mean, they're trying to make this data valuable, but they're not getting into eyeballs or getting into computer vision algorithms. I mean, essentially. And so time and time again, I was CTO or VP of a couple different companies. Everybody was trying to build it from scratch. And I finally was like, look, I mean, if four or 5 years later, this still doesn't exist in the market. I mean, I should go build it. And so I started nights and weekends, kind of working on. I was actually working on a podcast discovery tool for platform that could kind of run ML and run things on the podcast and kind of create this knowledge graph from the data in the podcast. And that actually became the start of it. And it ended up being, I mean, we raised a seed round last year about a year ago exactly. And got started as unstructured data. Well, tell me about the MVP so that first product you build. Tell me, how long it took you to build? And what sort of tools you use to bring it to life? I've always been a kind of Microsoft stack developer at least. I mean, I started off with C and C++ for years, but then have been a .NET guy for 20 years now. So that's kind of my go to in the back end. C we ended up and it started out in .NET framework and then ended up being done at core ported over to that. But it's all Azure cloud native. It's a serverless platform. Basically an event driven serverless platform is how we built it. And so I actually had sort of a prototype of this, I guess, about two. It really started about three years ago, and then was on Azure cosmos DB with a graph API, so I kind of taught myself graph databases. And it just really became kind of came together as this really elegant platform that everything events fire events and we just have serverless functions to handle them and it scales really nicely and then we use a lot of managed services from Azure. So yeah, we've kind of for the MVP point. I'd had a good bit of the back end ready a year ago, and so I heard it basically brought together a team of folks I work with before. They were good front end. Our great frontend developers. And so basically, I'm doing the back end. They were doing the front end and it took about 6 months to get what we kind of call a private preview. And that we started showing off in October of last year of 2021. And that was the first time really anybody we got public feedback on it. It definitely was, I mean, it was still very, very M and MVP and there were some things that we realized that were really, I mean, we needed to do. And so that's why this key one of 2022, we really would focus on adding some core new features that I think we had hoped it would be sort of more sellable, more viable in Q four, but we realized it was still a little light in some areas. And so we've been really heads down this quarter. So, okay, so for that first version of your product, the MVP, you have to make certain decisions and tradeoffs when you're building that first version. Of what you're going to include and what you're not. Tell me about some of those decisions you had to make and how you coped with those decisions. It's always interesting. I mean, you do enough customer discovery. You try and develop a mindset of kind of who you're building this for, but there's so much to build a lot of times. And I mean, we're not. I mean, this isn't just a simple web app. I mean, it's.

"Jacob. We sound design engineer at general motors. You are in the bacon you can experience the sound Much about the sounds that we can show because the lights are visual. We can show the lights on the screen and uniting our ads and everything but sound is difficult because it needs for the customer to experience that nba. Leave some of the surprises as well right. I won't be disclosing all the surprises. When you'll be new portfolio of makers so we want a bit of that surprise element when you sit in the car and expedience the sounds. You feel the sound rather than light. it's easier medium. do you know show now. I wanted to talk about functional sound because this is a go back to functional sound because this is kind of where you're at one thing that you had mentioned when we spoken earlier is about pedestrian friendly alerts. We've also talked about how there is a certain seatbelt sound and there's a sound for turn signals and and i know just from my own experiences sound for opening and closing the door. How do you go about creating this. Is this from scratch. Do you have a blueprint that you work off of. And how did the speaker system play into this. So you are referring to the pedestrian friendly load function which we call it and gm and industry-wide scholars eve s or the acoustical baykal alert systems. And just give you a bit of history about this And then i'll tell you more into detail of how what we do about it so electric vehicle warning sounds are sounds designed to alert pedestrians. The presence of all electric vehicles warning sound devices have been mandated by the government regulators because vehicles operating in all electric mode produces less noise than the traditional combustion engine vehicles and can make it more difficult for the pedestal and cyclists or Especially for the blind people or kids are on the street be their presence. So warning sounds may be a you know driver to triggered or automatic. It used to be that way. But now it's being mandated so it is a part of all the electric vehicles going forward for all the manufacturers so in a nutshell the new regulation makes it mandatory to have acoustic systems with electric vehicles or pedestrian and especially for visually impaired persons to won't easily your electric cars approach venue doc. About how then do we develop a sound for this. Does this sound from start from scratch. Yours that i would like to bring in my one of my favorite quarters like music is painted on the canvas silence but the challenge. What we are facing here is along with this blank. Canvas that is a restriction placed by the government that we have to match the regulations as well. So what does that mean as some of the one of the band's has to meet a specific. Spf levels the challenge. Yours i would have the most beautiful sound created in hollywood for a phone. But can that be used in the vehicle right now Answer is yes and no. Yes you can use that sound No if it doesn't meet the regulation so we want to make sure that it's a sound which is lessened yet is alerting. So that's a very delicate balance of meeting. The legal requirements was making the customer happy and dance. Swear the whole challenge of sound design starts and being iggy. Nba been pretty proactive. Since the euro of two thousand ten onwards to do a lot of research with Blind folks and a lot of other owners as well to make sure that what audie sounds which would allow the customers at a proper distance as well with a speed so the speed is from zito. Do cardi b. h. Kilometers per hours or approximately twenty twenty two miles an hour. The bitch of the sound changes with the speed of the vehicle. that's the catcher. So the sound which is created as a three second able sound approximately three second lupul sound. And how does that particular base sound. Get altered when the vacancies Accelerating or decelerating can a classical sound beyond it it can be but the moment the pitch changes the sound becomes annoys. So that's delicate. Balance of you know using correct modulation and using proper cycle sticks and those kinds of Nitty-gritties goes into the play. Let's talk for just a minute about psycho acoustics because that's another fascinating element right there. Why don't you tell me a little bit about So we at general motors again. Take cycle steaks and the physics offered on very serious note so cycle six is nothing but an intentional acoustical signal Which is produced to provide feedback in the case the know giving inflammation to the driver about the functionality of the car so psycho acoustics are our perception of sound significant emotion by beating the gamble bitch intensity. So the overall sound would create a modulation modernization is nothing but sound properly buried systematically or or a specified diamond to which would signify motion dimension and depth and recent suggests that all cycle stick elements of sounds are represented in the human auditory system. Starting from the cochlea the cochlear nuclei and the central auditory pathways on the way up to the temporal lobe. I get to learn a lot about this because my wife is a physician. So i keep on bothering her. The explaining to me the anatomy behind but market research customer believe that the way the products ounce determines the quality of the product so they do pay a lot of great attention to details when it comes to the quality of sound the sound therefore adds to a very important factor for a customer to buy awake hands sound quality and sound character. Both an integral parts of psycho acoustics so sound quality Judgments strongly influenced by user expectations regarding the sound and it would also depend on the vehicle class or it can be brand specific so the sound conveying the right type of vehicle or the bagel features the parameters can be Speed foul size of the waco so during the design phase. The listening skills of the sound designers are what most importance to help manipulate the frequency spectrum of the oral sound using techniques like equalizing and mixing and create a beautiful soundscape because Believe it or not their way in one particular sound just listening to your sound for this podcast which you have created that there are so many layers to it and what do you want the brain to get one by one and unfolded that so. That's the beauty of You know a sound designer. Some of the things like loud sound.

"Through There's a device that reads your payment credential through the car the same way it would through your phone, and this has existed for a couple of years. But it seems like it's something that's starting to really take off over the next few years. And so I looked at one market research report from this company called Juniper Research, and they estimated So this year in 2020, people paid less than a billion dollars through their car, essentially by 2025. They think that could be more than $80 billion. A lot of that will be driven by people essentially paying for fuel or electric vehicle charging at the pump. But something might also be you know, you buy food or drink, whether that's Like a fast food drive thru whether it's at the gas station, it's going to be something that people are going to start getting used to, in part because people had gotten used to paying through their phone, like basically paying with their credit card without actually using. Credit card. Debit card doesn't work. Sort of, like easy past technology. Yeah, it would kind of feel like easy pass, except that the difference between easy pass and this is that with the credit card, you always need some sort of authentication when you're not there in person, so people are used to you know you use your pin when you pay it a terminal or your signature. So there needs to be some way toe authorized that it's you who's doing that. And in this case, a lot of the time. It's voice, right. So in the same way that you maybe gotten used to using the voices sits into your card to, you know, turn on the radio or give you directions. You'd probably also then use a voice assistant to pay so you know, maybe come over the car speaker. Oh, do you want to pay? You know $15, too. McDonald's or whatever it might be. And you would say Yes, it's me and so, so with where Azizi passes just like Bing, Bang, boom, you don't need to authorise it. You might need an extra step here. God, it's alright. So explain some of the partnerships your reference, like Honda's starting to do things with visa, for example. Yes, A lot of companies air working together because right there's car cos there's payment cos there's payment services Cos there's you know, chains of gas stations, right, So s so so different Players seem to be getting together to work on things. So Honda Motor and Visa have worked together. Shell has worked with people. The gas stations and the General Motors, which issues like a branded credit card is working with different banks is talking to different banks about how they could help. Those banks could help them issue a credit card that maybe could be used in that way. So, like General Motors and Goldman Sachs could in theory team up on a credit card that works that's especially designed to work or maybe reward using it through your phone for a price. It may not be stomach issues. For me. It's intense gas or pain or diarrhoea, sometimes all at once, over and over. I spent years with the symptoms but could never figure it out. No matter what I did. They never went away, so I decided to break it down for my doctor and get really specific about my symptoms. We discovered that execrable pancreatic insufficiency or a p I may be the reason for my stomach issues, epi eyes caused by my pancreas. It leads to diarrhea, gas, bloating, stomach pain, unexplained weight loss in oily stools. The symptoms just don't go away. But epi I can show up with even.

G. inputting Fannie Freddie conservatorship than that right you know the the escalating series of failures over the course of the fall and when we came in even during the transition this question of what to do about the auto industry generally and GM and Chrysler that were quickly running out of cash was front and center so I was part of a small team that was tasked with trying to figure out what to do number one you did we have a way to step in and backstep them should we and free if you answer both of those was yes then how could we actually executing get this done so I have a pet theory that if the treasury secretary is an industrialist the very happy to bail out industry analysts finance banks and stuff go the restructuring route and vice versa if they're a financier then the industries can go through bankruptcy but they fell out thanks as too big to fail so you guys ended up inheriting the bush bailouts of the banks and then doing your own industrial policy bailout ten years later how did it turn out well there's actually surprising consistency between the end of the bush adminstration our view on the need to do something to backstop these companies because of the second and third order effects I think that you know that the conservative estimates were a million plus jobs on the line because it wasn't really about the specific direct employees of GM and Chrysler although there were you know tens of thousands of them but the suppliers the dealers that the date the auto industry touches a lot of communities and a lot of jobs so we were pretty focused in the death of such a economic downturn if we could do something that was targeted ineffective and that did require sacrifice from all different stakeholders the stakes are pretty high and so we should give it a shot and that was that this sort of the core animating these responded but we did ultimately decide that the way a to actually get the level of sacrifice necessary that the level of changes in these companies was gonna require them going through bankruptcy and so both companies ended up going through bankruptcy in hindsight I believe it's one of the most effective economic policy interventions at the height of a recession I think we stayed more than a million jobs at the end of the day we got back more money than the a bomb restoration invested in as a whole the government it the entire effort cost about ten billion dollars and so if you look at the jobs in the economic impact that we were able to protect and solve I feel like it was a an effective and reasonable use of of taxpayer resources so then you transition from a government employee effectively even though you're on the policy side of it to one of the biggest investment firms in the world what is that transition like you know in some ways both large complicated organizations that have a global reach and that in some ways less difference than you might think between the complexity of the executive branch in the complexity of the big complicated organization but on the other hand you know are very different in the sense that the same set of issues that I was thinking about it we were working on from the policy side around how do we create the right conditions for private capital to to move into lower carbon solutions and accelerate the transition a low carbon economy is what we think about aflac crack but with a very different lens the lens being how do we actually deliver for our clients most of whom are pensioners and who have a long term orientation or trying to save for long term goals quite fascinating coming up we continue our conversation with Brian Davies global head.

"IPO and DC'S TURF battle overbid tech but first so that sound is some of the tens of thousands of General Motors auto workers who walked off the job yesterday arguing that they aren't being fairly compensated in light of GM's record profits short auto workers believed that they made big concessions sessions after the financial crisis in order GM claw its way out of bankruptcy and now the good times here again they want a bigger piece of the pie why matters for GM an estimated made fifty million dollars per day in lost revenue as its plant sit idle why it matters for the United Auto Workers Union the organization has been beset by scandal and needs to regain the trust of its members and why it matters for those members that it's the most hopeful moment for consequential leverage in over a decade why matters for politicians well. It's CATNIP. President and trump isn't taking sides but lots of his Democratic rivals are Biden Sanders Warren Harris Booker Buddha Judge Castro etc are all siding with the UAW over GM with sanders going so far as to call the automaker greedy what's notable however is we don't actually know yet with GM has offered or what the W has countered with and that's also true for a lot auto workers who've been left in the dark. GM did put out a statement promising raises and improved benefits but without any specific details moreover almost everything we're hearing from GM the UAW away w and politicians is about the jobs of today but not about what the future will look like and how any deal struck this week or next could be antiquated by the time it expires US fifteen seconds. We'll go deeper with auto reporter Joann Muller calling in from Detroit but I this the Equity Fund Resources.

"The United auto workers is apparently striking against General Motors which they just they don't think a recession is right around the corner because if they did they would be striking today. according to The Washington Post about forty nine thousand at General Motors employees walked off the job at midnight on Monday after negotiations between their union and that is right car China reveled over wages healthcare job security and other issues this is the first U. A. W. nationwide strike since two thousand seven now you will notice the irony of a nationwide strike in two thousand seven because two years later the federal government was bailing out GM. and so the idea then was that the management eight at GM was cruel to the workers two years later things were going so badly for Jim that the federal government had to step in and views tens of millions of dollars in the GM to keep them running. negotiations that have been ongoing since July came to a head on Sunday afternoon union leaders announced the strike would begin trouble one on Monday if the two sides could not renew an agreement in place since twenty fifteen. the U. A. W. V. P. Terry debts he said we set up for GM when they needed us most now we are standing together in unity and solidarity for our members their families and communities where we work and live now listen I think that if you can get your workers to strike enter not beaten up scabs this is perfectly legit it's a perfectly legitimate private economic activity if however this is all predicated on the idea that if you have go south the taxpayer's bill them out to the tune of you a W. earning money the answer is no. and the only people who are in a position to evaluate the reality of that claim are the folks over at GMO that bailed out last time. according to The Washington Post the GM brings insignificant profits eight point one billion dollars after taxes last year it's grappling with massive changes to the auto industry family family sedans have become less of an emphasis for Detroit automakers as consumers gravitate to SUVs and crossovers as well as green or electric vehicles in March Jim actually chartered production at one of its plant in Lordstown Ohio and scale back production of the Chevy Cruze. according to the alliance of auto manufacturers the broader vehicle industry supports nearly ten million jobs and has historically accounted for about three percent of gross domestic product that's two hundred twenty thousand people working car manufacturing. the people are viewing and GM's job cuts in Morristown as signs that the economy is leaving parts of the country behind if you a W. is striking to prevent the shattering of non effective factories they're cutting into the future of the company and presumably this will only be bailed out by Washington again and then the seals will get blamed this exactly what happened last time GM got blamed for a deal they caught with you a W. that was a very very rich deal for the U. A. W. and then G. and had her had trouble in the bosses got blamed for being too nice to the workers could spend you a W. money electing Democrats to provide bailouts and pressure the owners of the factories this is why government skews incentive structures I'm all for negotiations between workers and employers but those negotiations cannot be affected by the possibility that the government is going to step in and bail somebody out or that the government is going to step in and pressure employees on behalf employers and have them please but it's more of this in just one second first did you know you can watch all three hours of the show you can but you.

I did that so corny yeah oops. I meant General Motors so general motors well. Everybody knows that I don't think he'd much of an introduction but we're interested because General Motors went from just being this powerhouse company most of the century to needed to be bailed out like what happened you know for years. People believe that it was way too big to ever go away. Investors had a lot of confidence in the company anything had employees and invested like savings into the company <hes> but in two thousand nine company declared chapter eleven bankruptcy so there are a number factors that led to G._M.. Becoming one of the largest auto manufacturer in the world I think we should talk about that for a second because they could also share some late on why they failed and so one of the number one thing that that was really interesting is the offered Ford Lines of credit to consumers in the twenties and this is back at a time we're Henry Ford was morally opposed to offering credit to customers Ford sounds like a jerk.
