"Any same thing so I get on it and he's like you won't miss all the stuff you said Michael like you all Miss semi-colon. Then I'm still co-developing ally in Java and Python to. Beginning and I'm going back and forth and I'm just like, Oh my God, it's so it is so bloated I can't stand this anymore like Oh this waste for stupid curly braces and this is just a waste and then also one thing that python does is it almost makes you think more executive like in a way I think about that it's bullets. The reason that tabs there is it's like bullets it's indent this it organizes your thoughts in just a more natural way whereas the structure in Java and other more verbose languages is imposed through like you having to sort. Of. renumerated. But this is a life I mean over the years what we have in an ID now didn't exist before and actually the way I learned to program and maybe you and I still think a valuable skill as I still go into the I instrument the code I don't even use the buggers because they really sucked back in the day when I learned I mean maybe was there and other things but the weren't that great and so I still guess what people instrumentation in any language and printing stuff out and values of your variables works independent of any debugging. People look me nowadays to, and they're just like, oh God he's still do again and it works that wanted to be hyper efficient. So some of these basic constructs but again, like the tooling, the ID's and all of that eventually supplanted I think python is a natural evolution of language. Everyone tells me Julia the next thing actually my p. l. people at j.p programming language walks who are just amazing. Sometimes people award I got Julia Julia Julia. Is Great. It came out of the dirtbags data program. I was a part of that I know all the people that MIT that made it and tastic it's growing it is now python python has now become it's not just scientific. Cool. It's enterprise and python is I really think it's the plan to Java. In many ways and Julia, maybe the next thing but by then I don't plan to be programming Dari. Maybe sitting on a beach somewhere. That's the goal or effect. All right to other things I wanNA, talk about we'll get a on time here but just really quickly tell us about a couple years ago. I read this book called the Panama Papers and it was rocking the world. There's so many people who had been doing shady things through offshore companies and whatnot, and there was a guest someone on the inside that dumped gigs and gigs of data that exposed a bunch of folks. I, don't remember the details well enough to go into. It was a big deal and some of your projects were involved in sort of the discovery of that right else about the yes. To the key was. Tika and that was a really interesting time. We were right in the middle of the Darpa Mex- program, which was to build the next generation of search by that I was mostly exclusively in technology development. It was pre-. It I had moved into it yet and I was finishing out my career really in engineering and science and leading a team of real rockstars. The Best of the world, some of them who are building and have built Siri outed apple in their future things right now some of them. Who have been bought by apple for huge company values, talent buys people really they just went in and changed the world in search every I worked with Darpa programs, which is why love Darpa so much in NASA Darpa work. Well, together, I look around the room and I'm like Oh God I, just fan boy geek out on all the people that are there I worked on Darpa project as well and at the same feeling. Yeah that's so awesome and so we should talk about that line. But so yeah. So I'm sitting there on x and Mex- my big goal was to build out Tika to evolved ticket for the next generation not like all AI. Today although we're in the process of really a and Tika and it's construct. But it was like the first step into ai beyond just statistical information retrieval, which like teak. So what does he gets the digital Babel fish the way I describe it as teak is just like fish from the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, you put it to your ear. You could understand any language FICA, you give it any type of file format, any type of file that exists on the Internet that we know a fourteen hundred plus file types more peca. Will extract out the text extract out Meta data from the file, and it'll tell you information about the language of the file, which is basically everything you need to do something with the data in the file and it incorporates all of the major third party parsing libraries that are free and open source to get that information out and uses all the standard data models and this and that, and so what we were doing during Max is we were evolving Tika to. Support. The Non Standard Types of content you know the easy taxed and the other things. But when you get an image instead of just getting meditated out, get out who's in there do object recognition and tell me the people, places, things, dates, times, and other things that are in those images, videos and multimedia formats that was the goal of medics, and so we were significantly building out teak at the time there so much action going on the open source community well. We had this guy. Matthew Korenaga's Anglia up and Mike. Oh who's this guy he had built not we had a bunch of people building teacup interfaces into other programming languages and so he did that he contribute it and we start talking to him starts asking us these questions telling us he's part of the I C I for Jay or international consortium of Journalists Cool we start looking it up and then boom Panama papers drops and we're like holy S H use..

"He pulled a couple of other people that he was working within and is like Oh God. The floodgates are open weakened develop again, and then I just let them take the idol. I haven't done anything in years but the projects alive today because of that, and so you've gotTa capture absolutely is scarce resource like you said, motivate what was that Rsa at. Video about like purpose motivation that's such a great way to capture it to the same thing. So absolutely so these days you're over JPL and you have some really interesting things going on there your the first principle office in the area of data science. What's the story there to JPL has this thing called the principal designation, which basically are somebody that's normally been there like fifty years when so I'm joking no one killed me for that police, but it's been there for a long time and usually our principles are in we've got the founder of Hyper Spectral Their Guy Rob Green, argues the founder of the field of hyper spectral science. We've got people who explore the guy who used to be the project scientists for the square kilometer array huge billion dollar international project of ground-based sensing, looking at the cosmos an answering the tough question that has so much interesting stuff in terms of how much dated has had some of the folks on from a strategy on their talk about that it's kind of like you can't put in hard drives it so much data. Type of problem. So Yeah Oh God seven hundred terabytes per second to in the twenty ten to twenty fifteen timeframe. That's two, thousand, sixteen even that's all anyone ever wanted to hear from me is that I had some referal involvement in that and they're like talk about that you know a but we've got the guy that was the project scientist founder of that JPL. Those are our principles usually and so yeah. So in twenty fourteen, they gave me that title because they realized that in data science allow lot of the stuff data science was becoming something that basically we were developing a maturity, a skill set and capability and JPL actually needed to go triple down. And quadruple down on that and so what it means is that all the experiences they have I talked to people like your podcast Michael and others I sit there and talk I needed to talk and evangelize to that JPL and so that was the recognition I was an individual contributor still then I basically just would tell people here's all the stuff with data scientists it science it's math. It's around that time I wrote a paper in nature called division data science to and and you know people like me don't normally get paper in papers in nature. Yeah. That was a big deal and basically I was thinking a lot about data science and how you'll like. This I had this dichotomy in education. At the time I'm a computer science software engineering person who after about a decade at JPL learned hyper SPEC mud sensing why western US water matters cared about the cosmos s k. and I haven't thought at times about getting masters, degrees but kids kids, mortgages and other things. Other interests gotten away, which is important. But I was sitting there thinking how many of me Jpl make it to me high being there for ten years and any software engineer that we hire five years at JPL before they learn the lingo and it's really hard unless they only live in it or what we're seeing at the time was an emergence of. Atmospheric scientists or PhD Computational Biologist or whatever who learn python believe it or not could write code understood what logistic regression was whatever, and we had this emerging class of them. As data scientists they wanted to share their code they wanted to they want to work with the software engineers as opposed to really in this is going to sound ages away, but it really isn't but as opposed to sort of the generation before who didn't want to share their data. They wanted nine month publication moratoriums to them. They wanted to file a patent instead of making open source code and things like that, and they're still the evolution of those folks into the new. Generation today but I was looking at that sort of alcohol supply chain in the education community for data science and I was asking myself what's better? Is it the python person highly skilled in deep discipline domain that their software engineering code isn't that great? But if we pair them with a Master's PhD level software engineer, they clean that up and then over time they'll learn it like you said, everyone starts out with python but doesn't mean anyone's going to contribute to their code you know, and so I was actually seeing more on the atmosphere science side of people and Python. Now, being more useful in data science, and so that's really one of the questions. I was asking that nature paper and one of the things that I still don't have an answer today but we've seen different I'd say momentum's and it's not just a jpl in how we source the talent and the same is true today with a a agendas and things like that. Well, I think one of the really interesting questions is, do we need more software developers or do we need more experts with software development capabilities? Right? You hear the politicians and policymakers go on and on like we need to teach coating because we have all these coating skill gaps and whatnot and I think often at that level, it Kinda gets portrayed as to what? We need is more computer science graduates. Right. But my theory is what we need is amazing biologists, physicists, doctors, lawyers who can take whatever they do in really amplify it with a little bit code and I think that's why Python is. So powerful is hyphen is one of these special languages where you can be affected with a very partial understanding of even what it is or what it does. You don't even know what how to create a function and you could be useful in python under percent under percent. Agree that was the conclusion of my nature vapor at the time and I'm trying to be diplomatic but let me say something controversial maybe degenerate cliques. Yeah. I completely agree with you and it's heresy in my community where I originally come from but I don't read transactions on engineering anymore I'm sorry I don't only stay in the software engineering community and computer science, and so for me I've I've noticed the same my direct experience in both building big suffer projects for big big national and international things and sourcing over hundreds of people at JPL and in consulting roles and other things I've come to the same conclusion. I completely. Agree with you. Yeah and that's not the discount computer science degrees I think it's A real important role for goods offer developers with all the practices in place there but I don't think we need and times of those I think the value it'd be better if we brought everyone or into that camp rather than growing at in that isolated camp though, yeah totally, and you can relate it back to the twitter Hashtag campaign the learn to code and why it generated so. Many I think hate on both sides of the political out with that you know when the challenges with that you know we're GonNa let's talk about this. We're going to have a big there's GonNa be a skill gap and people ask me about this all the time related to ethics and other things. So as for your listeners after all the software development in job and big data and whatever..

"The time wanted us to do our final projects in notch and so mine was a really simple syndication or RSS. And by the way for your listeners, I'm going to get to the python part. I. Just have to tell you that. So you can make fun of me because I started out in big big hardcore, Java. So I got into notch. I built the RSS Sparser for feeds for news feeds. That was my final project in my search engines class during my PhD and I contributed too much. And I got involved in Apache. The Apache Software Foundation were had just moved to and I started talking to Doug and all the other developers and I became friends with them and I became a niche committer. The funny part was my academic cousin at UC Irvine because it's all in the academia, there's like who's your advisor? He's like Dad, who's your advisors by your GRANDPA cousins and uncles? On the academic side, one of my cousins was Justin EHRENKRANZ was the president of the Patchy and my academic uncle was roy fielding who was the founder of Apache and so I had this sort of Apache connection without even as well as rest the whole idea, the rest architecture yet Royce famous for that. So you see Irvine during the mid nineties, which was like the decade before i. was doing it was like the place to do software in a big software gooey and multi architecture development and architecture and stuff like that dictator ran the group and anyway Seattle eat a bunch of all stars. He had the guy who invented Argo Yo Mel, the guy who invented web down the Guyland arrest the guy who did the component connector architecture stars. So those are my ancestors academically so I'm doing search engines and whatever I've got this connection anyways to justice Roy who are telling me get involved in open source and unlike cool. Okay. I could do that. Let's and so I started contributing to notch and not eventually became do yeah and so then you became spark and so I'm in the system I'm playing contributing I got into search engines that was really became passion because I was I was building. These big data systems that JPL for mission science I was like we need to use this Java stuff and all this ecosystem, and we need to scale and do all that. So the fighting was here's the python long winded answer you asked me how did I get into python in about two thousand nine after I had led teams done this myself built three mission ground systems on John we proved all the naysayers wrong. Can't do it. You know got to be sleepless blessed. We did a ground system on Java. got. Tired of Java. And I was getting shoved down my throat then and that was like everybody has at some level in their career one or two or three eras of their career and my second era beyond early programming was really Java, and so then my third era was python I mean by started to get involved I went away from missions. I got involved in technology development and I started going to government technology development and the early two, thousand, ten to twelve. During the Obama Administration. There was the big data initiative and they. Funded a bunch of programs, hundred million dollar investments and things in big data and I was toe in some of these programs standing alongside them with people like Peter, Wang Travis Olifants, and I started to learn in fact I, even funded them during a program called Darpa Mex-, to grow what became what was continuing Olympics at the time a smaller company out of thought what became now Anaconda, and so I started talking to and then Peter Sitting, there telling me Oh Chris Screwed, Java. Yeah. Java. Guy Sitting amongst all the. I can just hear I hear Peter say in that as well. Yeah. What are you doing? You're messing around her. Peters tell me he's telling me about bouquet and he's like, Oh, you know number and all this, and I was like you guys got you got your own foundation numb focus Andy Farrell and I became friends and easy to come talk at Apache Kahn, which was great. They never invited me to pie data or anything I. Did them. But yeah. So I got involved in that and so I said I can do this. Walmart. Time go deep and learn, and so really probably circa twenty thirteen. The big thing for me was I created Tico we'll talk about that later but that was my big thing in Java besides hit all this and so in two thousand, thirteen, twenty, fourteen reported that the python and I did that with a guy named Brian Wilson at Jpl and that was my I can go deep in do python and deliver something of value to the python community, and so the around them, that's how I got involved in Python and that's how I'm there now to do machine learning and other stuff. anyways, I don't want to dominate but yes, that's of the answer. Well, two things first to get a call from jpl out of the blue in your Undergrad or a master's degree program say, Hey, why are you just drop in and just do some work on like cutting edge space just down the street like that is incredible ride to get such an. Opportunity and I I think that's really neat. It's a big time, Opportunity Michael, and for me the thing I like to tell me but I've learned a lot of JPL twenty years there. A lot of people will give me a God, you've been here for twenty years. I said Yeah I'm just sort of entering mid career twenty years jpl JPL's made career i. Want. To run a mission you've got like, that's a twenty year commitment fifteen year commitments of dimes out dude you're. Right and so you can see JPL I, tell people this. You can see the people that are going to be there for five years, and you can see some of the people that are going to be there, and by the way we like those five people to will get whatever we can. We can talk about that later out of whoever you know our mission is space and hit me in two, thousand, three, two, thousand, four the big thing was the spirit and opportunity twin rovers. The first three or four years of JPL. It's awesome and you're just like, but you're young and you don't know in pre sheet space and everything else and so I was like, oh? Yeah. Maybe I'll go work at startup. Yeah. After this and it hit me in the Mer over Mars exploration rover Spirit and opportunity and they send them and they land and I saw the landing I stayed up at night I watch nasty was just my wife and I at the time in our new house, we bought our first house and I had Bought my first fifty, five inch TV that if you compared to the TV's the thin ones now it was like as big as my living room and I'm like, yeah, we're as own cooling unit, its own cooling in it. Oh. Yeah and so he's sitting there watching it and then Arnold Schwarzenegger comes out east the Governor of California and he shaken hands with my friends some of my friends who I worked with on some of the Senate on Mike I'm like I know this is amazing and and everybody, and then it's like the JPL. You know when we land and stuff like that and so the yeah that that's when I was like, Oh, I worked there. That's awesome. Yeah, and I knew I was going to stay there you know. Yeah Really Cool.

A Guided Tour of Mars
"Leveraging virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in collaboration with Google has released access Mars a free immersive experience that allows the user to take a guided tour of Mars by following the path of the curiosity rover users can. View the actual dunes and valleys explored by the space craft. As they wander through the lonely red desert, the user can zero in on objects of scientific interest including rock outcrops and mud cracks. A JPL scientist narrates the walk explaining the geologic evidence curiosity has unearthed. The web walk is available for use on all desktop and mobile devices or any VR ar headset and will be periodically updated to reflect curiosities ongoing mission. Previously, these technologies were used to take NASA scientists tomorrow's. But with access Mars anyone in the world can ride a law.
Breaking the Esports Audio Sponsorship Mold w/ 100 Thieves VP of Esports and JBL's Global Director of Marketing Comms
"While the podcast. So we're going to be breaking down this deal for both perspectives. It see how the cookie crumbles really what it comes down to how these deals habit. You see all the headlights you see the products being worn by the players Orga dive into really the steps that lead up to the creation of a brand deal like this one. So starting out from the early stages which side reach out I was JBL. Making the step over to one hundred thieves or one hundred thieves reaching out to jbl. Do you guys remember? I'm pretty sure we were the ones that initiated the contact. Through an agency that we're working with at the time to help us to grab craft our approach to to exports into gaming in general. So I i. think we were the first ones to to to. To Extend the hand. Absolutely, Jacob, do you remember when those conversations started and the energy was like a as you reached out? This is a space that's really filled with a lot of partners jbl. Here's a legacy audio brad reaching out to you remember what those early conversations through like. Yeah. A excitement is always Key in figuring out these partnerships and really looking at all brandon and who reposition ourselves with. We need partnerships that we that we truly get behind an ice either about So with JBL obviously premium quality products something we feel like we represented in displays of east bolts. So while I, can't remember the. The. Stop Time. All who initiates I remember you know sort of the. The sense of feeling in the room once we came over the initial hurdle of introductions and you know that was one of excitement. Absolutely. I can only imagine the seems like a trend that's happened this year of these really log running brands enter eastward seeing that with Herman. Miller. For example, in the complexity partnership, you've got a brand that well out dates video games, much less e sports getting into the space promising. Hey, we've got this great product that's been used by all these other industries, and now we want to be involved in East Sports Michael From your perspective. Why was J B L A natural fit for East? Sports. So I I think to to answer that it was. We were looking at this more as a great fit for gaming and where we think gaming is is going in the future if you take a look at how the graphics within the game have evolved over the last fifteen or twenty years like. It has grown in leaps and bounds, and so the realism that's now. Prevalent in President Gains. Really helps to create the super immersive experience for Gamers and we felt like sound was a piece that was that was lagging in that equation. And so our whole idea was we want the gamers actually be able to hear the game in the same way that they see it. and. When we identified that as a need in space, that's when we knew it was time for us to actually enter. We didn't want to be just another brand that said, hey, gaming. It looks cool. Let's do that. We wanted to make sure that we're actually bringing something new table and and actually you know solving a need that we thought consumers gaming space might have. And that was really the whole impetus for US designed to get into gaming. Absolutely in every game knows how important audio is you mentioned how graphics approving well, sow does it prove it as well especially in the battle royale? Sowed is so important you've three hundred, sixty degree view. There's always people either above below at identified where they are and reacting to it is becoming an increasingly important part of being successful in eastport. Jacob you of a background is professional player. Could you talk about how audio matters especially at the highest levels of water video game? Yeah. Absolutely like you mentioned the. But I think The. The shooter Genre in general audio is one of the most primary importance of of of performance ride. So when we first started this conversation, it aligned sort of when we. Just picked up our counter strike team as well. both counterstrike fortnight now valor and call of duty call everything right sound. So very pivotal to to play performance. So as one of the the first conversations that I remember having was making sure that whoever we partnered with on the audio category, it would be a product that we were excited to use them that all of our. Players get behind and use on a daily basis because of how how big of an importance it has on the products on performance site So it was very reassuring. I remember Maddie from from team coming into the conversation saying listen it's got it's going to be jpl I'm really excited about this what are your concerns here because mostly on the performance side without teams and so Speaking on behalf of all of our players and going into the competitions it's important that we have You know state of the OPS. Hardware. When when we playing whether that's mountain. audio. Absolutely, you're only as good as your equipment. Well, that's a lie could be better than your equipment plenty of types, but at the highest level, those little those little differences really make a big deal. Michael
Prototype Ventilator Created At NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
"Specializes in spacecraft not medical device manufacturing, but excellent engineering rigorous testing and rapid prototyping are some of the agencies specialties. This is innovation. Now, bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. A new high pressure ventilator called vital has been developed by engineers.

Active wildfires are fast-moving disasters, and the fallout can be terrible, too
"Of our series how we survive. We've been looking at how tech can help us adapt to climate change today. We're looking at fires and smoke. NASA and its Jet Propulsion Laboratory are launching flights to gather more data about the lingering pollutants from fires by flying things straight into the smoke plumes. We can't actually see these super tiny pollutants but they are big enough to affect our breathing especially for those who have asthma both NASA and JPL are learning more from studying the plumes during an active fire as well as the air post fire to help understand how these pollutants could affect us over the long run. Marketplace is text Hayes Use Alvarado reports earlier this fall NASA and JPL sin two planes flying into some plumes of wildfires northern California. The planes were on a special mission. Shen together air samples from an active fire carbon dioxide carbon monoxide nitrogen Nitrous Oxide Particulate matter the talk show style rose and Applied Sciences engineer at J. p. l.. She says flying planes very close to the flames to grab air samples as necessary because the existing awesome data. NASA generates comes from too far away those hybrid satellite images from space useful for tracking and even anticipating the path of fire. Can't give us enough information about the breathe here on earth but air samples can tell us about the fuel composition. How high the plume is being injected into the atmosphere? And how dense that plume is and doctors and scientists are hungry for that data to answer questions. Like how much ash will be trapped in the atmosphere wants to flames are out. How will our breathing an overall health down here on earth be affected? All of these are things that will affect how far that the emissions Sion's will carry and in fact we've actually seen fires from Canada affecting air quality in Florida you took the planes house emission the D. C. Eight flies down one of the fire with hoses attached to the outside of the plane sucking air into empty tanks for evaluation back at the lab the Er two cruises that so many thousand feet about twice as harder than commercial flights using high tech sensors to detect how hot the fire is an measure. The height of the flames scientists can use this data to to extrapolate down when effects of the fires because a super tiny particulate matter too small for the naked eye to see literally affects every living organism born an even unborn. They've actually also recently found some of those particulates on the lining of a fetus. The mother was breathing a an literally affected her baby. Would doctors need to know. Is What happens. Long-term when the respiratory system and even the lining of the amniotic sock where the baby is growing eh exposed for weeks or months to invisible fallout from a wildfire. JPL's a style road says emissions are targeted to help find answers trying to get at the relevant relevant information for decision making so that decision makers can make it quickly in an informed way climate change means wildfires are increasingly inevitable and now saying JPL have launched this research to help figure out how to live without new normal that was marketplace tax other auto. NASA also has a new APP out called called Earth. Now where you can see in real time. Active fires satellites hovering over our planet and of course a bunch of other cool NASA things And now for some related links. Australia has been fighting horrible. Bushfires in recent months that killed six people oh and created a very toxic air quality in Sydney hospital visits were up ten percent and the air quality was up to twelve times above. What's considered Hazardous speaking of Nasr's data the organization found that fires in New South Wales and Queensland pumped out almost half of Australia's yearly normal amount of greenhouse gas emissions and that because so much forest land is either burned or compromised by smoke. It's usual ability to absorb all that carbon dioxide it is also greatly reduced the T. l.. Dr Here the fires caused by hotter and drier. Weather resulting from climate change are also contributing to more climate change. Change California's carbon emissions also went up dramatically during the twenty eighteen fire season. So that's a bummer.

"Here at the Amazon remorse conference which is going on between June third and seventh in Las Vegas two thousand nine hundred and that is and for those who they're not aware of the Mars conference it actually stands for machine learning automation robotics and space of course being focused on artificial intelligence and it's broad applications focused on those first three letters mostly machine learning mation and robotics components and as part of that we are thrilled and excited to have today as our special guest Tom Sodas trump who is the chief technology and innovation officer at NASA jet potion laboratory hi Tom Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast today well thank you for having me this is a true pleasure and an honor yeah thank you so much for joining us today we'd like to start by having introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a bit about your background and your current role at NASA my role is really to try to predict the future and in future today so it's really if you can we've created an innovation experience center where we go into this room to experience the future today and with that is all about is trying to understand what technology waves are ready to be served and which ones are worthy to be surfed and if we serve them can we have an impact to JPL NASA and really any enterprise and we're from California so were surfer dudes that's our metaphor yeah as a matter of fact yeah we heard you give a talk at the Keno on Wednesday here at the conference and for our listeners who were not able to make that show maybe you can give us a little bit of a recap of what you talked about some of the insights that you have at Nasa Jpl certainly the talk title was too Walker Thais Mars and this was playing words Mars in this context means machine learning automation robotics and space and of course we care a lot about the planet Mars so democratizing means two things that means surfing these technology waves that makes it available to people so that's the other part having everyone participate in answering the questions that NASA is answering like is there life in space are we alone if we one day needed to export humanity would we have a place to go and where do the universe comes from where is it going these are big questions that affect all of us and therefore all of that should be involving solving them so democratizing Mars means to make the Algorithms make it available make data available so that future explorers can stand on the shoulders of giants not in years or decades but in minutes and right now as I know that this event is all about machine learning and ai but so in your talk you didn't touch upon that much can you tell our listeners some examples about how Jay is using a I certainly did I gave a few examples of a but very few because the conference is full of really good examples of ai the one I gave was about predictive maintenance so we use today we have satellites around Earth and in deep space and we want to see if they're about to go wrong so you use machine learning and take the previous tracks or orbits US training data and then we now take the actual data as news around machine learning algorithms to see things on wrong if they're going wrong then what we do is we visualize it for the people so that the people are still in the low so we intelligent assistance rather than artificial intelligence. I A rather than and that's been very successful we're finding just about all the anomalies that people found we tested and now some that people didn't find that's great you know we talk about ai as seven patterns of a until predictive analytics is one of them and we do know that NASA is doing a lot of predictive analytics so I appreciate that example that you're with us because we talk about that a lot and I don't think that some of our listeners understand or know just how how much NASA is using predictive analytics so the example with the satellite was great can you talk to us about other ways that you're using it as well so in other one predicted maintenance is so if you think about what NASA and JPL does we track spacecraft in all of our solar system and beyond actually on this sort of system so to do that as the earth rotates you have to have antenna farms that can understand and listen to our spacecraft talk to them wherever this baseball Dr for instance voyager it takes almost forty hours to get a signal out back so the space Antonio that Central Command another antenna will receive well those antennas are in very high demand so you need to understand what maintenance do we need to do so we're using a lot of ai to say what looks like it was going to break we hope you're enjoying this podcast and sorry for the brief interruption Kakinada not only produces the AI podcast listening to right now but we also generate research and advisory to help companies make sense of AI cognitive technologies we also run the most authoritative vendor neutral she learning training and certification on the market if you're looking to make a reality for your organization are a three-day cog lick training is for you if you're interested in attending confined pricing and registration on our website at cognreznick dot com will also provide a link in the show notes we've met many of our podcast listeners in our classes and we hope that we'll see are you there as well now back to the podcast who's going to break we'll use another antenna and take it off line for a little bit and that's one good example that can then be democratized two trains automobiles airplanes cars just as we can learn from their methods to make our machine learning better so I know that you know we talked about some of these applications of around predictive analytics and some of these other things that you're doing at NASA JPL but maybe you could talk about some of the broader things because NASA is involved only in stuff that's orbiting other plans but right here at home as well so maybe you could talk about how he is being applied in space both on other planets and right here orbiting our own perfect why don't we start with home the homeless where the hardest and there's a lot of things happening what we do at NASA is to look at Earth from space and you get a very different perspective so we have a lot of satellites orbiting Earth they take around ninety minutes to get around and for instance one good use case of AI is detect forest fires so they're looking and all of a sudden let's see they see a plume and it looks like a forest fire they can then re target another satellite too zoom in and then trigger the fire department to respond to so that is really about an autonomous swarm of satellites working on the human behalf another one is to take in all of we're sending a lot of satellites out to look at water so we understand the water pattern we understand that the ice melting pattern so we can do machine learning on that and let people know with real data what's happening and neither one is predicting Salamis hurricanes floods droughts all of that it's all about looking at massive amounts of data and analyzing it and looking for patterns and giving you a heads up warning happening so those are some easy if I can say that use cases another one anyway so that's enough about earth for now space so are farthest craft voyager it's about roughly fifteen billion miles away with a B and we have a lot of space craft in between we have spacecraft on Mars awesome Mars is the Mars Curiosity Rover for example is driving a Mars and finds it looks for rocks that we have pre identified it also has a I running on it that is looking for interesting rocks so it has so it finds one of those and it takes naps a picture of it and then if it has enough energy and depending on what else it needs to do then it sends that serves as an intelligent digital assistant to the human to catch the things that we missed so that's one example of

The Rock apparently rolled about three feet propelled by thrusters as insight touched down on Mars. The insight landers primary mission is to study the Red Planet's Interior but images of the surface taken the day after landing show where the rock rolled with the rolling stones about to perform nearby it made perfect sense for the JPL L. Team to name the Rock. The Rolling Stone Rock Robert Downey junior made the announcement at Pasadena's Rose Bowl stadium just before the ban took took stage official names for objects throughout the solar system can only be designated by the International Astronomical Union however the informal informal nickname will appear on Nasr's working maps of Mars giving rock scientists rock musicians and rock bands something to celebrate great for innovation now.

Ten Months And Five Hundred Megabytes discussed on Dear Hank & John
"Week in mars news mars got hacked so that's my mars news this week jpl the jet propulsion laboratory had a security breach about five hundred megabytes of data was stolen so some restricted information some of the stolen files related to the curiosity rover it happened last april and it went undetected protected for ten months oh my god i gotta stay at a hole in their security for ten months you might think that hacking nasa would require some pretty advanced like mission impossible type technology but the actual source of the hack or the security hall not the hack was a small cheap computer a called raspberry pi raspberry pies are can you please tell me they are super cheap computers that are often using like d i y fun things
"jpl" Discussed on Security Now
"Yeah. Just gonna put a raspberry pi in here and we'll stick a little webcam on the raspberry pi, I can just get a picture of the coffee pot and see how we you know what the water level is. Oh, by the way, we got an at work. I'll just put it on the network. Why not Leo? So in a report published last week by Nastase. Oh I g the office of inspector general in that report it revealed that in April of twenty eighteen hackers breached the agency's network and stole, they did act in this was more that this was an active threat stole approximately five hundred megabytes of data related to Mars missions because, of course, that's what J P L does the point of entry was a raspberry pi can do the network at as I mentioned, J, P L, without authorization or going through the proper security review me, they have they have they have systems in place, which, which says, we're you're supposed to log and have approved anything connect to the network. But hey look, there's a there's an RJ forty five port. Let's plus plug in the raspberry pi according to this. Forty nine page. Oh, I g report, the hackers use this point of entry to move deeper inside the JPL network by hacking shared network. Gateway, the hackers use this network gateway to pivot inside JPL's, infrastructure and gained access to the network. That was storing information about NASA JPL managed Mars missions from where they exfiltrated information quoting from the report, quote, the attacker, exfiltrated approximately five hundred megabytes of data from twenty three files two of which contained international traffic in arms regulations information related to the Mars. Space laboratory mission. The Mars science laboratory is the JPL program that manages, the curiosity Rover on Mars among other projects, JPL's primary role as we know is to build an operate planetary. Robotic spacecraft such as the curiosity Rover and various satellites that orbit planets in the solar system. JPL also manages Nasr's deep space network, which is the worldwide network of satellite dishes, which are used to communicate with NASA spacecraft during their missions, investigators said that besides accessing the JPL's mission network. The April twenty eighteen intruder also accessed, the deep space networks, IT network upon discovery of the intrusion. I got a kick out of this several NASA facilities immediately disconnected from JPL and ESN. You know, just up pull the plug do not connect JPL. Those crazies out there in California, in Pasadena. We don't know what they've got crawling around their network, and they, they disconnected fearing, of course that the attacker by pivot into their systems as well. Nasr's. Oh, I g said, quote classified as an advanced persistent threat. The attack went undetected for nearly a year and the investigation into this incident is ongoing. The report blamed, and here it is JPL's failure to segment its internal network into smaller segments. And, of course as our longtime listeners know, we've talked about the need for strong.
NASA JPL Hacked
"Hello. And welcome back to the space news pod. A daily podcast where we discuss space science and tech. space station. I'm your host And according will to Walden a report in on on Forbes this episode. dot com, Massa the GPO. deep space network The Jet DSM Propulsion array Laboratory of radio has telescopes had its computer and numerous systems hacked. other GPL Hackers systems got into were the system. affected during this hack They and Johnson enter Space the system Center, who's through responsible a raspberry for pi the international computer space station and disconnected, then. completely Hecht further from into the system, the network not just just GPO to make sure at one point, that nothing the were to international happen space to the station ISS was amongst other in programs. jeopardy And they of said being that part of of these these Johnson's attacks. attacks. officials But But were concerned the cyberattacks luckily, luckily, we we could had had move some some engineers engineers laterally from on on the board board gateway into at at their mission Massa Massa systems, that that potentially were were up up gaining access, to to and the the task task initiate to stop initiating the hackers malicious to signals stop basically to human unplug spaceflight the systems that use that were those systems. in contact So basically, what with happened the. is ISS hackers found a before way the hackers not got gonna control go into too much technical of the detail international here. But there's. Security violations. There is no ticket resolutions, and there were delays in patching security vulnerabilities that were known by auditors. So what happened was Hecker is basically targeted a system JPL, and they found backdoors into other parts of NASA systems administrators lax security certificates, no role based security training was in place, GPO, and unlike masses main security operation center, it didn't have a round, the clock incident reporting capability, so things like this are very important to security as far as NASA goes, and our people in space, as well as all the science that could be happening at NASA. And if hackers were to intrude on that and deleted information, well, that would be a sad day for science for Hugh. Humanity in Massa is a big target masses. High-profile target and Mike Thompson. Who's a security analysts said many purely associate them with space related activities, but their depth of research and development includes patents covering, cutting edge science, that nation states would literally kill for the hackers might still be in their network, without them, even knowing it.
The Star Trek Starfleet Logo Shows Up on Mars
"Nasa actually just found a Star Trek symbol on the surface of Mars. Now it's not an actual Star Trek simple mind. You it's, it's a formation rocks in, it is possible, that it's caused by aliens Nagas joking. There's no aliens on Mars. Not that could make this symbol. We don't know if there's actual bacteria or anything like that on Mars yet. So. It is the Starfleet logo. It looks like the Starfleet logo. So. And it's not made by you know I just want you to know that it's coming straight out there, just telling you. Hey, man, there is no alien on Mars carving little Starfleet logos in the dirt.

Table salt may be hiding in Europa's underground sea
"Travel millions of miles to Jupiter's moon Europa, and you'll find something more often found on dining tables here on earth. It's according to a new study from researchers at Caltech and JPL more from KPCC science reporter Jacob Mongolia's breakthrough Europa's icy crust dip your Cup into it. Subsurface ocean and take a big drink. Scientists think it tastes like like salt like your table salt that you're used to eating your food that Samantha Trump. Oh, PHD candidate and planetary science at Caltech and lead author of the new paper. They found evidence assault on the moon's surface that they think is being left, there by frozen ocean, water that ocean waters filled with salt, possibly because it's interacting with super hot areas of the ocean floor known as hydrothermal vents. That's kinda tantalizing because here on earth there, organisms that can survive in water next to those kinds of events. That means that theoretically, some could be alive, and thriving on Europa, too, though, there's a lot more. We need to learn about it before we can say, that's the
Open Source Rover
"Would you like to build a Rover of your own JPL has published an open source design that could help you put wheels on the ground? This is innovation now bringing you stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shape, the future the open source Rover created by engineers at NASA Jet Propulsion lab is a scaled down version of curiosity from it's six wheel steering to its rocker bogie suspension. The plans published under an open source license on get hub can be built from commercial off the shelf parts for as little as twenty five hundred dollars while the Rover instructions are quite detailed. They still allow builders to personalise their own designs determining what controllers to us or whether to attach science payloads giving builders, the chance to really understand what it takes to construct a Rover like curiosity. The developers. Hope the community will contribute improvements and additions that could be incorporated into future Rover designs.

But garner points out that it didn't take long for the futures market to go from into spending no change to spitting rate cuts by April, that funds rate futures were soaring. You can see see this big rally. That's all people making a bet. How would a bookmaker break it down? Okay. Garner notes that the fed funds futures are pretty an eighty percent chance. Eight o of at least one rate cut by envier stiffly. The futures Mark is priced in a forty percent probability of one rate. Cut a thirty percent chance of two cuts and a small group of traders are even daddy, one, three or more rate cuts really outside that's over over over and all this seems like an overreaction guada- believes that the fence fund feds is stuck between a rock and a heart place. When the one in we've got robust economic growth couple with barely any inflation. Take a look at that obviously employment growth is pretty good. That should be Nevada for the fed. So there's no real reason for them to do it. When the other when JPL tightened to aggressively late this year. It really did slow down the economy and it's possible if might be willing to. Mentally cut rates. If that means staving while recession of the room making horrible corners conference that we could see in multi. Pause from the fed both because it makes sense as monetary policy and because of what she sees in these charts when it comes to the fed funds futures. Both the relative strength index the RSI, okay? And the Williams percentage or oscillators are Ma in mildly. Overbought tur- you of that, this one's just a little bit of which just a futures have come up too far too fast meeting. This thing was was an overreaction. Plus, there's a powerful Cillian ninety seven point nine to ninety eight so she's saying there peaking, right here, right now, she's making a very big call people if Garner's right December, futures contracts should drift back to where it was trading at the beginning of the year round, ninety seven point five. Remember right now, this thing is baking more than one rate cut and that seems way too optimistic for and it's not just the pit funds futures. Check out this daily chart of the I shares twenty plus year treasury Tf right now. Long term treasuries are forty with multi your. Highs member when rates go down bonds go up in value. Okay. Yields on your multi your lows while long term interest rates are only partially impacted by the Federal Reserve, there's still some correlation. And as far as Garner's concerned, this chart is bad news for the bulls. It's just the treasury prices are poised and go back down. Meaning yields will go up meaning more rate cuts might not be in the menu. I told you how contrary this thing is, it's an extraordinary. Call by Carly, extraordinary

And as a result, it has several ingenious barriers which has a cover which is built by JPL called the wind and thermal shield to insulate it from the planet's winds dust, extreme temperature swings and other sources of noise into date. The E S has surpassed all the teams expectation in terms of sensitivity, president of the C N E S commented that the French SEI s size monitor as the cornerstone of space cooperation between France in the United States instrument has barely begun its mission, and it has already hit pay dirt with this world. First revealing new insights into Mars a planet that was habitable in its ancient past the teams at the s I s Mosey mission control center into loose on working around the clock to operate SAS and analyze that data. Being back from the red planet once again, congratulations to all of the scientists and engineers to whom we owe this fantastic success on the surface of Mars in one Petit who is the CEO of CNRS said that earth is no longer the only planet continuously monitored by size monitors the S S instrument deployed on Mars at the start of this year is now recording the slightest ground vibrations day and night be due to the atmosphere, and it's wind sweeping the surface or quakes in meteorite impacts Mars is the third rocky planetary body in the solar system to be studied by size Malla Just's one hundred thirty years after the beginnings of instrumental size. Molly Jeter had fifty years after the first seismometers developed and deployed by Apollo eleven in July of nineteen sixty nine no fewer than eleven C R S technologies in partnership with universities are working with these exceptional data in.

We see today I'm gonna play you in actual sound of a Mars quake now. So this audio has three different parts the first part of it is Mars wind. So it's sort of sounds like that's my my closest that I could get in the middle. It goes a little bit. Little bit deeper pitch in goes a little bit louder in that stops in. Then there's the robotic arm from the science device. So listen to this closely in the middle. You'll hear the Mars quick. So pretty cool stuff and JPL is going to continue working of insight Lander and working with the French teens to have more SAS data and more on Mars quakes in the future.

"That their opportunity Rover sent them a message, and then they realize that's not from the opportunity Rover. The published story in the New York Post talks about how Nasr's opportunity Rover has been silenced since Jim. We talked about that, you know, everything just went completely and space, you know, Kepler's dead. They they actually sends commands to die. So Kepler the the beautiful telescope that gives us all his visions of these Goldilocks planets. Life can be no more. We won't hear anything about that anymore because Kepler's dead. They had a glitch in the Chandra x Ray observatory fix that dot Keppler Hubbell had a glitch fix that. Gyroscopes are going completely haywire. Everything was going. Not SpaceX had some problems. The holy ISS. I mean, a lot of things like a couple of weeks ago, we just having all these problems in space glitches and problems China had to abort a mission because they had a glitch in a rocket. So Nasr's opportunity rubber got gotten a sandstorm and just shut up and and so. Glitched went into mode went into failsafe mode. And now she hasn't heard from it since June. Days ago. Okay. The opportunity team had been actually waiting patiently for the Rover to wake back up ever since June and win a signal identified as coming in from opportunity popped up on NASA. Deep space network last Thursday got a lot of people very excited. However, the signal did not come from the Rover. It did not come from the Rover. Even NASA admits it did not come from the Rover JPL admits it do not come from the Rover. JPL quickly address the supposed communication noting that further investigation quote and quote further investigation revealed the signals weren't actually from opportunity at all. So if the signals weren't coming from opportunity if offered if opportunity wasn't sending me signals than what would sending the signal. Both JPL and NASA have not given an official answer. Silence speaks volumes. Ms what we've expected from NASA. Right. They say that they get a signal. They hope it's from one of the Rovers and what it is. And they just act like it's business as usual. Be quiet about don't tell anyone. Someone needs to come forward against nation. But of course, reports say that NASA and GPO remained vague on the issue there. Silence speaks volumes opportunity knocked okay opportunity, knocked of so to speak. So NASA they've not answered any questions about what this signal was. Or what the signals were? They thought they were coming from opportunity. But they weren't. Now, I did due diligence and tried to figure out if there was ever an answer from JPL announcer K about this. And I found something very ambiguous. All right. That's why I say the end beauity of NASA. I had these volumes of the embassy the best explanation. Given my NASA JPL is did they received either false positives? Or test data that may be blamed for the mistake. So. Sends me where do these false positives? Come from and the test data where did it come from? If if you opportunity is dead in the water or pardon me, dead in the sand. So NASA sending these big signals about a signal. There's not one of their signals. And perhaps it sounds crazy to speculate that it's aliens are intelligent extraterrestrials. But what is crazy? I mean, I mean, what is crazy? I'm telling you people about an errand signal. And then giving a vague explanation about not being from the Rovers sends a message loud and clear that something is out there something on Marston a signal they picked up. I I know that there are still people that believe that believing in the paranormal is shorthand for crazy. And I know there are a lot of people are holding off with some sort of sophisticated alien to reveal itself. And I know that sounds crazy. What's so great? I mean, this is crazy. This is nuts. This is this is aggravating. I don't know if you can feel my pain here because. For the longest time. We have been reporting some of the I guess, you could call the positives of what's happening in space, the talk that's going on it's steady in medi about trying to contact or or find technical signatures other NASA saying well now, you know, if you go out into space, you gotta have a reason for going out there, including finding biological signatures in space. Okay. I have played you many signals that have been picked up on by by a number of these probes and satellites and all they can say as well, you know, they're kind of cool. Kind of cool with mean anything, really? And there's always a more and more and more and more flies in we didn't pick up anything off of a more and more. No sound. No, no. They did though they picked up something because that's why SETI and Stephen hawking of time. One of the last things he did before he died was saying get on that more and more and find out what it is. Donald Trump said space force as soon as a memorial, right? We need a space force. He says because this thing was an alien alien spacecraft. Come right out and say it, but that's what it was is. He was so impressed. He goes to the Pentagon and says, then you guys just do a study on the threat assessment of UFO's Pentagon goes. Yeah. So what about the came in from interstellar space that we should be afraid of? No, MR president. We shouldn't be afraid of it. It does seem a little weird that it's red, and it's kind of shaped like this. But you know, it's not naturally shaped. And but this is a disaster just hear him. Now. It's. Huge go after this. Space force. It's like what happened when Truman? After Roswell Truman goes guys. We got to do something about these flying saucers. Okay. We'll separate the air force will separate the army, and then we'll create the CIA sound like a good idea. Good idea. So here we are again. A signal gets picked up by NASA. Nasa thinks. That it's the opportunity waking back up after a death, or at least a coma a sandstorm. And when they find out that the signal is not opportunity. Me immediately clam up. And then they give some ambiguous statement to what it was. And it doesn't make any sense..

"As for whether teddy Rex being computer tips, flew to Mars, I've tried to track down whether the rumors true. I contacted the Mars orbital camera manufacturer conducted research with JPL historian and spoke to people who've been working on the missions that the camera flew on Mars observer and Mars Global Surveyor. Everyone had heard the rumor, but no one could confirm it the chips hadn't been purchased directly from the manufacturer worlds of wonder but from layers of vendors who purchase and resell parts. I was told that the paper trail is so complex it could take years to wait through it. But I had one more avenue of investigation the ID number on the AT and T chips that were used in the Mars orbital camera. So I bought a circa nineteen eighty five teddy Rex pin doll that was being sold for parts and with a little help from folks here at JPL performed open heart surgery, the heart of the doll in this case was his circuit board. And it was appropriately located in its chest. The circuit board had seven computer chips. But none of those tips were made by AT and T. And none of those tips were for memory. Instead they were used for other tasks like managing power in voltage or audio amplification. The rumor is far as I can tell is wrong. However, it's still true that computer chips originally made for one product or repurpose for camera sent to Mars that product. Just isn't a teddy wreck spend all as often happens with gossip the details may have gotten jumbled to the telling and is often happens in science, the hypothesis doesn't give you the answer you expected. But instead opens up new questions perhaps someone out there has the answer to this mystery. Next time on a mission those kind of investigating work, but we did actually go back to those tapes to see if anyone come in between certain hours though, you really do feel like police departments times.

You missed the perfect opportunity to kiss on older on the lips. Good money. But it is a way to connect with your audience and a big part of improv is getting your partner to say yes and it's all about. Yes and yes. And, and when you're dealing with an audience, you want your audience when you're connecting with them to say yes and Jesse and like what's next. You want them to keep up with you and a lot of academics and teachers. Lecturers already do improv because you know, they always having to adapt to what their audiences if you're teaching a group at JPL about astrophysics. Exactly. You can talk about you can use them big words where if you're at a monster truck rally or a town hall meeting or a high school, you have to speak in their terms. And that's doesn't necessarily mean talking down to them. It just means speaking their language of what is new assigned, say about this sort of Mirroring, heard about something called mirror neurons. So there are these mirror neurons which were discovered actually in monkeys about twenty years ago where within the motor cortex there are these neurons that respond both when you're doing a movement, and when you're observing somebody else doing a movement, we think it has to do with mimicry like monkey see, monkey do. And so when you are watching someone else moving, it'll activate your own motor neurons. Now people, then I feel like y'all that same moment it could be could be actually why yawns contagious actually. Really, but but these these mirror neurons than people started extrapolating and say, maybe they have to be maybe they're involved in empathy and and and it's actually one of the most. It's been calling the most hyped neurons neuroscientist because I think we're, we're pushing it further than really where the evidence is has shown. I mean, there's a whole neural network that's involved in empathy and it's not necessarily just about these mirror neurons and then self awareness is something different. Just like in in animals, humans protests about eighteen months. You can pass that mirror of self recognition. But self recognition is a whole nother set of neuro circuits in the brain. Remind me you have an eighteen month old child right now. Experiments are you doing. Actually, I have ten month old and he way ahead of schedule in mirror. Recognize. Calculus and everything looking fine every day. Hilarious about ferry young babies don't that's constantly shocked by the hands and they, there's an age of which they don't even realize that this is them right cellphone, even a very still has he still. I have no idea how much together. Professionalism, stopping me from king knowledge. But you know, it's actually really interesting. Very young babies have senses sense of fairness. They, they have empathy. They like one puppet if it's a good puppet versus a bad one. Empathy that presumably has value in communication and and are are sort of anchor topic today is communication. So would you agree as a neuroscientist that this this mirror exercise can bring you a little closer to your audience or at least the person you're trying to communicate about making that connection? So it's it's again, getting away from that idea of just having a monologue or lecturing to really having a conversation communicating actually got from Bill Nye one of your guests here. Great piece of advice you told me was when you're talking to general audience talk as if you're talking to one person your best friends, and you're telling them about the science, and that's how you really make that connection and.
