Former Marine Says Liberal 'Woke' Fantasy Meets Reality in Afghanistan
"Got it. All right. So, mark One thing you know, I'm pretty sure you remember. But I want to refresh your memory, but I was a former Marine. Served in Iraq. Oh, that's right. And now the one thing You know, and I also have the audio book of American Marxism. I'm going to the first couple of chapters. It is truly amazing. I hope everybody gets because it's definitely a book that was made for this time. And the one thing mark that I want to say in the military we have this one scene that we all understand. Right. There is respect for the man and respect for the rank. Right when we're overseas when you're in theater when you're overseas in combat when it comes to the commanders, and the commander in chief personality means absolutely nothing. It is all about policy. It is all about what the man does his actions that he takes and doesn't take. And the one thing that I'm now putting together even more see clearly, especially because of your book. Is the fact that to today's people like dark, hard society were incapable more and more of having two different thoughts at our in our minds at the same time. What I mean by that mark, is that President Trump as imperfect as he is not not a perfect man, not necessarily the best role model to have But when it comes to trump on policy, right the way that many of my friends that are in the military right now. To work in homeland security that work I used to work on homeland security as well, but many of them to work in the federal government military they did not care about tweets. They care about what President Trump was doing with his pen. Trump on policy deserves four more years. That is the only thing that matters. Now what we're seeing now, What we're seeing is the inverse. We're getting all this nice rhetoric. That's all fantasy world rhetoric of how the world looks like the way that they want to see it. But now what happened in Afghanistan is when this woke fantasy meets

We're talking to folks in the dod the dia you talked to us a little bit about your background education wise and how you came to the position that you're now sure. Thanks then i'll give you the the winding story that's in insurance for kofler. Heard thus far has focused on developing new technologies in central interconnected areas national security healthcare energy the environment and leading into practice. I started out developing energy technologies. I was working on building. New types of energy services undergrad. I was using high-performance computation and applied mathematics to investigate better ways to stabilize fusion reactors master student and while i love building new technology and still do. I hadn't inch to understand the many problems that crop up when you try to take new technology and put it into practice year business school enduring that most of that actually worked in tanzania with a company what was then called off electric working to deploy small scale solar technology in technically feasible economically. Sustainable way i learned a lot doing that and really wrestled with a decision about whether to keep working on that effort or pursue a ph d. I ended up doing a phd based the stanford mostly because i thought that some of the technical fundamentals that were changing in real time would be the basis of the way that our economy and our society would function during my lifetime. I focused on leveraging performance computation at medical imaging systems designed flexible fuel combustion chambers over the course of those four years in my phd. I began working with machine. Learning algorithms computer vision to analyze medical imaging data and realized how useful a tool that this type of approach could be in practice. As a result of that. I ended up sticking around stock at stanford i got the opportunity to work at the stanford et al present. What your particular for. A guy named chris wray over there. Who's not post. Doc adviser

"Ai in business podcast. This is our third and last episode in a short three part series over the last three weeks on ai and the future of defense. We had steve blank on the program. Two weeks ago famed. Silicon valley innovator with Some rich military experience and a real mover and shaker in terms of changing defense culture mike brown the actual director of the dia iu proper and today we have the technical director artificial intelligence machine learning at the defense innovation unit. And that is none. Other than jared donman jared holds a phd in mechanical engineering and was a post doctoral fellow and computer science at stanford university before making his move to become technical director of ai. For the d. i you a little bit over a year ago. At the time of this recording and in this episode we focused less on the international dynamics of kind of building ai predominance between the west and china and we focus more on the range of use cases that are present when it comes to the broad topic of in this case homeland security and defense. Broadly as well. We chris and cross between the two jared opens. Our is a bit too. Just how many different kinds of ai. Projects the department of homeland security and the dod and up working on everything from mundane paper processing to healthcare related applications. And almost everything in between. There's so much to cover in the public sector that ends up under the h. s. And the dod. And jared gives us a nice lay of the land of those different kinds of applications. I think when people think defense they think ai for guiding missiles when it's really not like that at all there are smart phd's who leave excellent schools finest schools in the world And work in the public sector and don't end up working missiles for the bulk of their time. They work on a variety of other things that end up helping with homeland security. That might seem more mundane but also seem pretty interesting. There's some interesting niche. Use cases that jared covers that i think will be surprising for some folks who are thinking about ai indefens- or a in homeland security also talk a bit about jarrett's career path going from top university and into the public sector and what public sector folks might do to be able to recruit more smart folks like him. So if you're interested in ai in defense or if you're just interested in a wider array of ai use case understanding. I hope that this interview will be helpful for you so without further. Do this jared gunman. You're on the ai and business podcast. So jared.

That's what they're qualifying is a percent of people that have broadband above twenty by makes down only thirty nine percent in the county next to me. His hillsdale county has twenty five percent. If my roll up to jackson county which is includes a pretty big town city. They're at thirty eight. Calhoun county which includes a battle creek is thirty three. And if i move over here and look at where grain rampages at sear. Did i get that right. I gotta come up and over. I think i think Grand rapids is an allegheny county thirty four percent but it just It shows you. The of people have broadband is not that high everyone is below the average and then they have counties that are really bad as an example Oceana county here in michigan. Fourteen percent are using broadband if we get up towards the. Up loose county eight percent mackinac county thirteen percent. And if i even look at iron county in the up nine percent but you know you back over to california and he look at san diego sixty two percent adoption. Orange county seventy five los angeles sixty five ventura sixty nine kern county. Thirty four percent by govind look at nevada at sierra nevada is which county is clark county is is i think that's the county for las vegas sixty five percent nye county twenty seven percent but he in northern nevada down on six three same thing with northern california horrible glenn county and california twelve percent up to seattle area always a fringe counties counties that are rural rural america and then we get into the middle america here and you know looking at colorado in. They have pretty good adoption throughout colorado. And but then you get down into texas. And there's again through large swaths of texas the tab no broadband. Texas looks like checkerboard Oklahoma same thing looks like a check checkerboard of no broadbent and then we get down in louisiana. Was like that not bad. This year that's This is georgia this mississippi. So mississippi's not great either. So you know it really shows and we look at Alaska one percent so just shows you that broadband is is really truly still a big big problem right now and And for those of you listening to show you definitely want to look at this map and get an idea. How many people have you have these counties broadband speed over. Twenty five megs. It's shocking. it's truly shocking. So it chose you. You know an elon. Musk and spacex. Put up another sixty satellites over the weekend. That crank krankl and mouse like every show. I can report and You know almost got the point where i don't even bother to watch the replay. Just wanna make sure nothing blew up so it is a it is a challenge and i think what he has found already by selling five hundred thousand potential subscriptions to starlink is. There's a bunch of people beneath broadband. And if i look at this map it's not. It's not just my area. Michigan indiana ohio tennessee kentucky tennessee. I'm looking at these. These states are just full of hardly any broadband adoption so. He's got a huge opportunity here to bring rog ban in the. You wanna see where your taxpayer dollars have been spent remember. Remember these these these Broadband providers have been given billions of dollars over the year to fix the broadband gap. And they've done little to do that. And covert and everything else is exasperated. What's going on and But they got the state of from microsoft. They made this map from microsoft. Data that they've incrementally made available and that is. That is a pretty remarkable. So eliza chat says i brad says i have two hundred down in five up that you know that. That's a dream for me out where i live in. When it was raining all day sunday and sometimes pretty hard might broadband just might my my thing would buffer buffer buffer buffer proper buffer buffer. Then it would play play play for five ten min buffer buster bumper bumper. It sucks. I did speak tests. I was getting like six and a half down half way up. Forget getting any work done. When you're on that type of connection. So i just absolutely cannot wait until starlink is available for me because it opens up a whole set of options here. What it could mean is that. I mean not need this studio space anymore. I might be able to move the studio to my rural loo living a location and save money. You know i would immediately be a huge savings because i could recreate this set very very easily. I mean i may be a little bit cousteau challenged but i could remake the set in the loft note. No sweat no problem at again enough room to do that and they're challenges just like anything else but why not and I even seen those like little Ten by twenty sheds that you can buy that you can sat. I thought maybe that will be great studio location if it again if i can get consistent broadband from starlink you know. I don't need this commercial space. I love it. It's kristie be able to go to work in it. It's really quite a dream to be honest with you and but it it's more than i need so i use the green room a little bit. I used the demo room a little bit but that could be duplicated as well in in the new location may not be as fancy that there be challenges and getting lights up that kind of stuff. But what else you know. It's like anything else i've ever done. So let's get this thing. Let's get this startling stuff going here. Alana i can't wait summer's coming. It's may my. I want my notification I really do it. It's it's to be a big deal. Breads says a can't imagine what you're going through todd. My wife has to work from home and needs at two hundred down.

"So we're back with Paul Rosenzweig Talking Homeland Security I noticed that during your tenure at Homeland Security, a couple of your focuses were very interesting to me. One of which was international rules for data protection is that another term for cybersecurity actually, no rules for international data protection were rules about when we as the US government could or should share information with say our partners in Europe or when Europeans would share information with us more limited -ly with other nations like Brazil or India, what type of information? Well, the main locus of that information at the. Time was large scale data sets about things like who's moving money around and who's traveling. It turns out that the best ways to kind of get a handle on terrorist activity are through following their communications, which was an essays job following their money movement, which was treasuries job and following their travel, which was DHS job. So strategically, our goal was to get better insight into how terrorists were moving around the globe including through Europe. The problem with that is that in order to get insight into terrorist movement, you have to collect information about the movement of everybody. Helped me understand why why you would need to track everybody's movement in order to track certain targets that you've identified as potentially dangerous first off often we don't identify them until after they've traveled. So if we don't have a historic record of WHO's entered the United States in the last six months, say I can't look back and say, Oh, I just found out that the Mohammed Atta who is a terrorist and he may have arrived sometimes in the last six months. That's the first bit of it but the other more innovative and also intrusive aspect of it was that we wanted to build. A system that would build connections between people. So for example, if we knew that Mohammed Atta was a terrorist, we would also want to know something about the person who made a reservation with the same travel agency on the same day as Mohammed. Atta. So one of the things that remember back then because two decades ago doesn't seem like that far from me anymore we were concerned that the tools used to track potential terrorists targets could also be used to track I don't know the other political party for example, that's exactly what the problem was a with the collection in the first instance. I mean, the department took the view that that the terrorist threat was sufficiently real and that risk was small. So we were urging that we go for with it. Your concern was very real because I could just as readily say, let's track Jane because he's the head of the Democrat Party in Malibu and follow all the people that she knows and build a profile on her the Europeans were very reluctant to..
