"jeff bass" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Is fresh AIR I'm Dave Davies in for Terry gross whose home with a cold let's get back to the interview she recorded yesterday with James Jacoby about the new PBS frontline documentary Amazon empire the rise and range of Jeff bass us Jacoby is the film's director in correspondent it premieres Tuesday the documentary investigates how Amazon has disrupted and transforms nearly every aspect of our lives and is come under scrutiny for its tactics and expanding power let's talk about Alexa know that Alexa is the Amazon device that you can talk to and give instructions to and I can play you something it can turn something on in your house if it speaks to Alexei Norfolk town of its own Bluetooth but Alexa not only lessons when you ask it to do something it's listening to other things two one this has become a big concern so tell us more about Alexa as a listening device and how is what it here is being used so Amazon takes issue with that describing a lex as a listening device but I think that that basically is what it is in that so there's there's a distinction to be made Alexa is the artificial intelligence of Amazon it's the it's the voice that you are speaking to the the little devices are called an echo or they can be embedded in cars in our in hotel rooms or even and showers they've got a lex what they call a Lexus enabled devices and there it's now compatible Alexa the system is compatible with over a hundred thousand devices I think basically what's going on is that with with the thing in your home the the echo device if the microphone is on that Alexa is on and you say Alexa she wakes up because she's listening for that word and then you see the blue light come on and essentially after she's awake she's listening and she is recording and she's recording so that the artificial intelligence can get smarter so they use that data and that she records in order to make Alexis smarter so for instance you know if you have a type of accent that accented English and she's not really understanding what you're saying what command you're giving her or what question you're asking her there may be a team of human beings that are listening to that recording to try to understand and train her better to respond to this commands are questions this was not clearly disclose to consumers that there are teams of thousands of people around the world that are listening to the recordings once she's awake once that blue light is on trying to train her better now these are anonymized to some degree these recordings and not all recordings are listened to by human beings but it's a rather drawing thing for people that have these devices to realize that well one she's actually recording when she's awake and I'm talking to our and two there's a chance that a human being is actually listening annotating in transcribing what I'm talking about and we had an interesting exchange and that's featured in the film with this guy named Robert Frederick he's one of the founders of Amazon web services their cloud computing company and he talked about the fact that he approaches his Alexa with caution hill when he wants to have a private moment in his house he has an Alexa device has several help press the button that disables the microphone because he doesn't want to even risk it that somehow she's triggered she wakes up and she records a private moment and he doesn't want those he doesn't he wants to eliminate the chance that any sort of private moment could be listened to by another human being which I think is fair and reasonable so it you know you talk about in your documentary how Amazon wants to have the entire environment liked so what other devices has it created or purchased two Mike or video our world your world so one purchase that Amazon made recently was this company called ring and ring makes these doorbell cameras that was their first main device and so you may see them these days and essentially it's doorbell that has a camera on it and in in part Amazon liked the idea of it because package that is a big deal for the company that a lot of people get packages to their door and then someone stealing that package so now you can watch your front step the you know of course if the cameras watching the front step it's also watching the public space on the street as well which is somewhat problematic but so there's this now this whole suite of ring devices or ring cameras and not just to monitor the outside of your home but also the inside of your home and there was a there was a recent hack of indoor ring cameras which was rather frightful where all of a sudden there is you know we showed in the documentary there's a there's a little girl in a room and her parents had installed a ring Cameron that room and all of a sudden there's a voice coming from the camera that's basically terrorizing her as she is alone in her room and I you know she's a young girl and you know we've we feature this moment it was it was it was a hack and this actually this hack happened all around the country and it was a rather embarrassing moment for Amazon certainly because here they are saying that these cameras are introduced to make your home more secure but here's an invasion of privacy that's rather frightening so as I'm as I'm trying to do anything to prevent further hacks yes absolutely in the company I think has tried to investigate what the nature of that hack was and the executives we spoke to about it say that they're you know they're putting new features and it it's you know that's one thing which is to address the actual security of these devices and we generally do have a an issue with the internet of things that not all of these devices are secure or not everybody sets them up properly not everybody's instructed to set them up properly but the larger issue at hand here is that in some ways these devices are being sold as a way to enhance your safety and security but people aren't necessarily taking into account what they're introducing to their homes that the risks attendant with putting cameras that are connected to networks in their homes and on their doorsteps let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more of you just joining us my guess is James to Kobe he's the director of an correspondent for the new frontline documentary Amazon empire the rise in range of Jeff phase us which premieres Tuesday on PBS we'll be right back after we take a short break this is fresh AIR support for NPR.

What to watch for during Trump's 2020 State of the Union address
"To all state of the union night and I expect the state of the union to feature the president talking about space force so I have a tenant general Steve quashed former commander Air Force education training lieutenant general costs of course serve many many years in the airforce to join me to talk about that good morning general good to have you back well good morning good to hear your voice I wanna begin general with an off them off topic question I I usually spend election day because they're so doggone long I trying to movie so yesterday I went and saw a movie which surprised me a little bit call the last full measure it's about a pararescue jumper by the name of William Pynchon Berger who received the medal of honor in nineteen ninety nine after thirty years after it was in nineteen sixty six battle in which he lost his life jumping in the middle of a firefight involving big red one were you ever aware of this story were you aware of this movie it hadn't gotten any publicity at all yes I was aware of that but these are the kind of things that I pay attention to as a person who tries to protect this nation and so all of the human stories about heroes that are willing to give the last full measure are of great interest to me because the society that and genders of the kind of motivation for people to protect their values in this society that lasts it is and I am amazed that the cast in this movie Samuel L. Jackson Sebastian said Christopher Plummer and Heris I mean it the Peter Fonda just goes on and on and on and it hasn't gotten a lot of look back at the Vietnam generation you're too young for that but they deserve this kind of a movie and I hope people go and see it and I hope they learn the story of William Pitts and bart what surprised me general that I moved to space force of the nearly four thousand medal of honor that have been confirmed only three have been received by airforce enlisted man are you surprised by that well I'm not you know the the interesting thing about life and about that this habit you have going to the movies is something I'd like to propose all your listeners because for people to reflect on what's going on around them what what what this all means is really important in movies like that help tell the story about what this all means the fact that it's this many army or this many Air Force of this many navy is really immaterial what is important is that we have a cadre a group of people in the society who are willing to put on the clock defense to protect the values that has made this country great right now general want to switch to the state of the union it's going to be on in about wealth six o'clock tonight and you are eight o'clock nine o'clock tonight he's got six truck west coast presence gonna walk out there and for the first time ever I believe there will be a member of the joint chiefs of staff pouring a space force uniform am I correct in that I am assuming that that will be the case we'll see tonight when we actually a turn on our TV use that I I think that that will happen and what will you feel when you see that tonight well great pride great pride in our country at recognizing some of things that are changing around us just just as the changes that took place when we moved from the hunting gathering gardening age to the industrial age we are moving into a new network H. that is going to change life for all human beings on planet earth no matter where you live and the space forces are as at that person in that uniform is a recognition by this country that we as Americans need to lead ourselves into this new future or we will be led by somebody else now in the collection of categories of weaponry and mission but the space fourth collects will they have cyber general quash well again sometimes we get trapped into these silos of trying to assume for it predict the future of saying you are gonna do this you're going to do that the ways these take place successfully in history is when you start with new capability meaning you say what what is the problem what are we trying to do you build their capability and then you then you decide what mission that capability should should do OB otherwise what you do is you start making assumptions for the future that were true in the past and it doesn't fit and you can sometimes lose if you if you fall into that intellectual trap what I'm particularly speaking to is that each of the branches for example fly a sort of helicopter for a sort of mission that's not particular to any of the services Coast Guard S. helicopter therefore sent helicopters army as helicopters maybe as helicopters space for sits there and they have a unique mission and a new frontier do you expect them to fly helicopters or are they going to be much more focused on a particular set of instruments in a particular set of capabilities and when will we know what those are and and how they will develop right and that that's a great question and you know the reason everybody flies crafted because as we invented the airplanes the right brothers invented the airplane in nineteen oh three the world started figuring out how powerful it was to use the air to travel and to do all kinds of things communicate and and so everybody needed it and within what it was that they were trying to do the same is going to be true in space space is cell under utilized right now we we think we we work in space by having satellite fall around the earth but it is an entirely new geography so everybody will benefit from space everybody will use space out but the space force will in the future start defining what they can do that nobody else can do and that will start emerging as they build new capability so everybody will use space but only the space force will do those things that nobody else can do like for example if this involves the way I think it should be historically they should defend commerce and space so that anybody that is working as an American and space in any kind of business that is providing goodness and prosperity to our country have somebody that will protect their values protect their hard work and bring rule of law and expense of justice to that environment no I don't wanna go Star Wars honest but we don't have any capability right now to do that do we we don't have a shuttle that's flying we do have a lot of private sector initiatives in the area of space but do we have any vehicle the commander space in return well we do and that the and and they are growing and emerging more and more every day so what you're going to see is it Thomas is there we as a nation I never knew there was an ocean out there we were just on land and we were just doing our thing growing our food gathering and we discovered that there was this ocean and people started building canoes and boats and ships and the same happening here with space space is a geography of resources and potential prosperity and we are gonna explode into it as we go forward so there are something like the X. thirty seven is an example of a it's really a tiny little subtle but it can go up into space you can come back down and the lawn mosque is building the starship Jeff bass services building has aircraft that or space craft and we are literally emerging and to an age where it is going to be aviation like access to space where you can get into a space craft you can take off you can be anywhere in the world in less than an hour and back home for dinner and that will become pedestrian meaning everybody will do it just like you flying a plane get the LA to New York right now two very quick question general both about tonight's state of the union what is the relationship with NASA between the space force enough there and what do you expect the president to say about space force and or about NASA tonight or what would you like him to say well I I think I would like the president to remind the American people of this this this power of understanding what is going on around us and what is going around us on around this is technology is changing world power and we are moving into a new realm where space is going to change the way we deliver energy and information and and to remind the American people that going forward with the space force is a way for America to late because some civilization will lead into this new ocean of prosperity and historically whoever lead into that new area well defined the values and I want the values of free speech a quality human right and life and liberty I do not want to I do not want the values that we see being imposed on those in Hong Kong or the Uighurs I I want American values in this new prosperous economy because we value and respect human life general clients thank you for joining us lieutenant general Steve cross former commander Air Force air education and training command expert in space force thank you for bring in some perspective for the state of the union tonight of course I have most of the key state of the union tomorrow and maybe by tomorrow as well Wallace whatever's alter my what don't hold your breath let's talk a little bit about why Joe Biden collapsed first of all you gotta understand yesterday morning Joe picked a bad time to go on the today show and sort of melt down with Savannah Guthrie cut number two has it occurred to you that there's a certain irony here that has the president is accused seven is that knowledge wanting to get information about your son hunter in his dealings with Ukraine and this process of impeachment has ensured that everyone knows about hunters dealings with Ukraine no one's found anything wrong with his day was a crazy except they say such a bad image what do you agree that a sense about him and my son said that do you think it

If the circumstance turns out to be one where Jeff bass Ohs is buying everyone is Star Trek replicator, and they can pretty much have anything than what we're talking about. Here is a post scarcity future. Are we going into a future that's likely to be post jobs or post scarcity? I'm not sure it's the first question. The second thing though, is I'm not entirely sure about the dynamics of a proposal like the universal basic income what incentives. Does it create what consequences might it have are the promises with respect to the kinds of economic growth that it might stimulate likely to come to pass or might they have some sort of dilatoriness impact? How do you price a program like this? How can you be sure what the future will look like once you've instituted a program like this do voters who've become accustomed to a program. Like, the universal basic income insist that the benefit ought to be increased how else might people's behavior began to change. One thing. I noticed after our conversation is that Andrew has a number of really passionate supporters online, some which are gamers. And the gamers for Yang. I think are actually pretty interesting ain't nothing about the merit of. The proposal ado think it's interesting to to consider what a world might look like where you know, ten guys who are all friends could decide to get together. And why a compound released rent one out for something less than ten thousand dollars a month that they would collectively be entitled to in a world where Mr. Yang was president and his program had been lamented. What happens with those guys do they start a business together somehow use that money in a productive way? Do they may be live in this house in play fortnight, most of the time is it a bridge to a future where they can find other ways to be productive where those monies really do boost the economy in stimulate growth, in some way. Or is it a future that looks a little bit more like ready player one? I don't know. But it's an interesting idea, and ideas are worth debating, and I hope you enjoyed this conversation. Calm calm.

"jeff bass" Discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"But this looks like some light extortion going on we're essentially National Enquirer was like, hey, so I know you hired like an investigator to kind of try and get to the bottom of why we had like hacked texts of your remember when that Lawrence answers came out. We read some of the texts where Jeff bass like, I love you alive girl. Yeah. And we're like what the fuck doing right about? And he was like did you get my package? How did you get those? Techs. I mean, although like Lawrence Sanchez's brother has like weird connections to Roger stone. You know, he's like a magnitude. But still I do not have access to my sister's text message, right? So. Should be noted. No boundary fam-. Passwords anyway. So from there he was like something's weird going on especially when it's AM I and like the Washington Post has been up like Trump hates the Washington Post and bazo series. Like, can you look to see if maybe this was politically motivated, and when that happened there like we want you to stop with this. We hear you're going to publish a story. But how you like you've been investigating how this may have been a politically-motivated story, if you do not see some desist from this like just so, you know, we have some pictures of you that it'd leak like little wha what what are known as colloquial colloquially known as dick pics. And then other ones have like weird things about just him half naked or Lawrence Sanchez being happy. This is just weird salacious shit that they stole basically. Right and described them in the Email vol gag, very in very like direct, legal terms, so weird. So we're like his half erect manhood peeking out of the zipper of his cargo shorts or shorts. A cargo should anyway is the richest guy in the world wearing cargo shorts a hold on that cash. Maybe that's right. So you know, he was showing the back and forcing like this looks like extortion. And apparently, you know, there was a lot when his investigators got near the idea that AM I might have some also connections to the Saudis, which I mean, we all know that they put out like a really cool spread magazine. NBS iheart. Saudi Arabia NBA with no ads in it. Yeah. I was just you're at a grocery store like when NBS was doing his tour of goodwill around the western world. You probably saw a just glowing like a picture of him that was like a glamour shot teen idol. Yeah. Spreadsheet for that was that murder raise like tater woke Saudi Hoti. And so from there, it just got like darker and darker, and so, you know, a lot of people were like, wow, this is. Very clear extortion. Yes. I mean other people like if they really go like legally put it together, they say, maybe it's hard to find like extortionate intent because the language was masked under all this business, talk or whatever. But it's clear. It's like we have naked pictures, we will release view if you don't end with this like politically motivated shit later on like other people reporting that Basil's investigator suspects that maybe there was a government entity involved in getting these text messages. So it's starting to get fucking well AM, I you know, has a direct agreement right with Muller. Right. Yeah. So it's okay. We you know, we caught you red handed. You know, you you did the hush money. You did you know, the the cover up? What does it call it killing the story and kill the ching Kelly. Right. So Muller has them red handed and the and they're like, okay. You won't come to any chart. They'll be no charges. They have to do one thing. And that's not commit a crime three years. Right. And this is they go after. Jeff Basil's wealthiest man on the planet. And they think there's going to be no repercussions. That's fine. Throw a dick pic. I'm gonna throw a gazillion dollars. You know at this investigation show. My dick this own you, literally. And the thing is that. So it's so layered there's so many layers to this because I mean, literally Washington Post Amazon like everything like Trump has been. He's he calls him like his number one enemy right openly openly calls a me like try to shut down like the post office with Amazon. Show blatant. It's so and then the kashogi spread it's like so obvious..

To get the crews away safely How you, would do that and they've they've done that test before but on. This particular one they did it at a very high altitude when. The rocket was just past the, edge of space and within the vacuum and then had the capsule fire its own motor motor and. Send the crew shooting away from the booster getting. Them to safety and then? The? Comeback down and then it was successful and they were able to do that and that sort of a? Key, test for them because, they are looking to fly humans to space. Perhaps early as this year for their test flights, and paying, customers, they, want to start selling tickets by as early as. Next year but before they start doing. That they're really going to test the rocket and? The, escape systems and all the safety. Parameters really vigorously and this is a key test in that regard do we know yet what what. How taxing it would. Be for someone just the casual tourist in space to go, through this escape system well on this particular one I think it would be quite taxing It would go really. High really fast and and? Come, back down I think they said that the you would have a maximum of ten Jesus that you'd feel? The, force of gravity ten, times but first short amount of period And come back through now obviously that's a pretty, rough and exhilarating ride but it's better than, the alternative, if everything goes normally on the flight I think it would be you know much less than that that it'd be about four jeeze I short amount of time on reentry and that of course is, after your up you know in, in space in unbuckled from your seatbelt and floating around the cabin and. Experience weightless environment that you? Report that blue. Origin hasn't. Said how, much, a ticket is gonna cost to go to space but. In a year or so there's probably gonna be.
