"And they stay to protect their assets and a very committed to remaining. Ken Accuse that a better understanding of the seven different types of evacuee could lead to more effective emergency messaging. That's tailor-made to your particular evacuation tied. The emergency services. Still push hard on. You should leave leave early. It's safer to leave early. Which is absolutely true but the act types works suggests that the emergency services can better target and communicate with people at that stage at the stage of influencing their preparation and planning by identifying their particular interests that beliefs the likely responses. And really recognizing that saying. We know that this is how you feel. These are your motivators. This is perhaps what you can do to better prepare. So it's really saying we understand you. Had you identify the people because I mean I guess that's the trick like had you know ahead of time if someone's going to be a threat denier or worried waiver it's a great question the cf? I in in Victoria is actually being doing work for a couple of years now since we identified the targets in the post season surveys. They've talked to other two thousand people in Victoria and identified the archetype so they're looking at their programs and how people respond to their programs using that data. I've recently finished a large project under the safer together program which recommended that we actually develop an online tool to allow practitioners or householders themselves to establish their archetype. So that's work to be done but yeah hopefully be done on their way to the main evacuation center in Basements Bay will flatmate mobile reception for the first time since the crisis kicked off earlier that morning so we stopped him suddenly making a lot of calls and messages. And the so my mom straightaway and it was bad because it cut out a sin as a cold and all I got through his mom saying you'RE K. Thank God and mazing mom and cut up. And that's like my mom was just thinking some kind of panicked final phone call don't will was able to call it back soon. After and gave a brief update before continuing onto the main evacuation center. Once they arrived they found well equipped and not too crowded. They had the Red Cross disaster welfare and it was a really sex bought and so we had some food and there was some beautiful moments there because I was sitting next to someone and they said have you into the briefing said. Oh no no but I heard this Blah Blah and I said oh. Where do you live? And then they said we're on Lilly pilly as a same and then they said their address sent here actually three houses up for me. It's quite funny. You can know your immediate neighbors but after this we started knowing the Hull Street. So that was quite lovely. So willingly slap may bunket down for the night. I decided to stay in my car that not my flatmate winning these ten. I think it was about ten o'clock at night brushing my teeth and I had this moment. I thought Shit. He's my knees. Haven't even had a drink today in the past at ten o'clock because I was so exhausted and then it's there wasn't my car news. Eight laughing going. I can't believe this. This is just ridiculous.

Good plan chief troll investigators Joe Werner and his son Fem- you with with all in the mind on our in Amnon Malcolm today delving into the mind of an infant Alison Gopnik professor in psychology and philosophy. Happy from the University of California. Berkeley Studies held babies and young children's minds work. In fact she likens children's brains to the most most powerful computers on the planet. Yeah so one of the things that we're doing now is we're collaborating with people in Computer Science purply elsewhere where because the big advances in artificial intelligence the things. There's been so much excitement about have all been because we figured out ways to actually design machines that could learn but the machines that learn even the most powerful ones the ones that can learn how to do things like play chest or can figure out cats and dogs. It's on the Internet. Those machines are still terribly primitive compared to even the simplest the youngest baby or child so those machines can do is take enormous amount of data and pull out a statistical pattern from the data. But what they can't do is think up new ideas or understand things abstractly or for makeup possibilities that are not in any of the data that they originally saw and children with much less data with much less information are doing a much better better job of thinking up new ways the world could be understanding something like that. A machine could work in an unusual strange kind of way. And what we're trying to do now is figure out what's is it. That's going on in the children's minds. Let's do that and could we use that as a clue for how to design smarter computers so one of the other things that children do. ooh That's kind of like what scientists do they do experiments. They actually go out and try and get information about the things that they wanna find out about. But when they do the experiments we call it getting into everything or playing and one of the things that you know about babies. They're just insatiably curious. You know even at the risk of their survival they'll l.. Just get into everything and try and figure it out and experiments leapt on and other people have done have shown that when they're just kind of playing around they're actually doing doing just the right kinds of things that they need to do to figure out a task so one of the things that people are doing now is trying to design curiosity based artificial artificial intelligence that work by just intrinsically trying to figure out how things in the world work in some ways the is that we have now are a bit like children who have very controlling tiger mom because they have a programmer. Who saying do this and do that and now you're doing better now you're doing worse? And that's not what kids are like. Kids are doing most of their learning just reading off by themselves and playing and exploring and if you wanted to get a system that really had the kind of intelligence of humans. That's the kind of system would need. So Oh you are observing the way children think and applying that to develop more sophisticated. I that's exactly right. So one of the big granting agencies in the United States Darpa which was one of them places where the computer was first invented just have sent out a call to get people like me who the study babies and computer scientists together for time that those two groups have really been interacting to try to see what the next horizons are. And you've suggested suggest that babies or young children and adults have a different style of consciousness. Can you describe that different style. Yeah so I think. The new work suggests that there's a child intelligence. It's really different in many respects from adults elegance. One way that people talk about this in in computer science and neuroscience is a difference between exploration and exploitation so the kind of intelligence that you need to get things down to act swiftly effectively actively the way grownups do is really different from the kind of intelligence you need to just figure out how the world works. Find out as much as you can about. What's going on around you so to be an Out All it's really a good idea. For instance to have very focused attention. Just pay attention to the things that are important in ignore everything else. That's going on around you and we can show that grownups. GROWNUPS actually are literally blind to the things that they're not paying attention to. If you're paying attention to one thing you won't see anything else that's going on around here when we look at babies and young children what we. She is a much more distributed. Kind of way of being in the world they're interested in and perceiving much more of the world a way that you could think of it is if you think about adult nope consciousness as being like a spotlight. It's just lighting up a particular part of the world. The baby's consciousness is more like a lantern it's illuminating everything that's going on around ended and there's been some lovely studies that have shown for instance that children are better than adults at remembering something that they haven't attended to so adults are better than children if you tell them okay remember. What colored card was? They'll be better but if there's something else on the card you know there's a little heart in the corner you're and you don't point that up to the adult they just forget about it whereas the children will actually remember even the thing that they weren't paying attention to so human children have a Longer period of being dependent and helpless almost than other species. What can evolution tell us about the value of having these really extended dependence right? Well it turns out that there's a relationship between how long a period of childhood and animal has an how large brain they. They have basically how smart they are. And we're kind of the best example of that and the idea. Is that if you think about this. Trade off between exploration and exploitation creature like us that relies on learning needs to have this protected time this period when all they have to do is explore not worry about food not worry about actually succeeding. Not Worry about getting on in the world and that exploratory period is what we call childhood. An interestingly went people are designing computers. They they have also result this explorer point trade off and one way of doing it. That's comes up again and again is start out by exploring start out by considering lots of possibilities abilities and only later narrow into just the things that are going to turn out to be most important and evolution seems views that kind of strategy first explorer that exploit right in creating babies. So there's a really good argument for allowing children to be children for as long as they need to be absolutely so one of the sort of bitter irony Ernie's being a child psychologist lately has been for the last thirty years. We've been telling everybody look. These children are so brilliant and they learn so much understand so much an often when you say that the message that people take is oh we should put them in school so we should make preschools more like schools. We should give them flash cards or train them the way that that we do in school and in fact a message is just the opposite the messages if anything. You'd want school to be more like preschool. That the natural play and exploration Russian in a safe setting with people who love you. That's the context in which young children learning the most and certainly but for about six in preschool kind. If period that kind of wide ranging expiration and play seems to be the secret to being able to use these amazing learning abilities that we see in young children so so what is the potential for using some of your research findings in that way to inform and apply to our approaches to childcare and into schooling to education. Yeah exactly I mean I think we have some very very good models of things that people sometimes call inquiry based education or Montessori schools or my personal favorite is. What's the Reggio Emilia program? These have been around for fifty years. And I think intuitively good preschool. Teachers understand Dan that when children are playing when they're exploring that's when they're learning the most but I think often those teachers are kind of caught in a pincer movement between the parents who really really want their children to do well. And the policymakers who want to have you know a major a standardized test that they can use to show that it's worthwhile investing in young. The children and what the science says is that that kind of standardized test is not catching the thing. That is what children are doing. What children's play and exploration exploration are doing is a labeling to be creative and to be resilient those are things that are kind of hard to measure in kind of standardized way? But I think we've now got some really good evidence that it's that creativity and resilience that gives the children the great start that will let them continue to thrive later on so they must be lots of things that adults else can learn from children in terms of being more open minded learning imagination creativity. How can adults colts retained some of those qualities? Yeah so it's important to say I'm obviously really sympathetic with the With the babies. But of course you wouldn't want a baby to be running running your faculty department or your country. You want people who have that ability to focus into explode into make things happen but even for adults. It's one of the things particularly for human adults. We go back and forth from being in that state of okay. Now we're really focused on just getting things done to being able to consider sitter a wider range of options and some of the things that we do with children like putting them in a safe space where they don't have to worry about outcomes right away those. Those are the sorts of things that seem to enable adults to be able to explore so a university or a science department is. It's really is kind of like a preschool for grownups. It's it's a safe place where you can play and you can find things out. Another thing is getting back to not knowing too much part of the reason why children can learn so much because they I don't know very much to begin with. They have much more open minds. So it's putting yourself in new situations at Olsen challenging yourself. Exactly now. I think another thing is hanging out with babies is a really good idea so I have three grandchildren. Now who are seven and five and four war and if you spend time with a four year old you will get your mind expanded because you can get to participate in that kind of wild crazy place where nothing is quite quite what you would have thought in the first place.

"It's a think stand up comedy, you think of a guy holding a microphone acting as if he's thinking. Jokes for the first time. Right, right. That's the sort of standard convention and you're doing the performance lights choreography, prerecorded music again, doing you're making commentary about yourself while you're doing it the next special before that is what it was. Yeah. And is that form where you started off? I mean, you can sort of see you getting more elaborate and more rehearsed and more better at it, but is that again what you were doing when you started off doing stuff live? No, no delay or no? No, that that that was that was discovering comedians discovering discovering a lot of like European and Austrailia and comedians stand up in Europe and Australia is much more theatrical and sort of, but it was going like I like, I don't get to do any of this stuff. I, I used to love theater and I did the-the or an I have to stand up here and talk and sing songs like that sucks. And then I'd be like, what I really missed in theater was dialogue listening. I don't get. I. One day I was like, I don't get to listen on stage anymore. Just talk the whole time. So then I thought of backing vocals. So I'll have voices speak to me on stage so I can listen or lights and props and and music used all that. How much work does it take to write rehearse mount something like make happy? Well, it's an interesting that that was an interesting one. And that was like, because what we used to do is just be me and my tour manager, Chris Scanlon, and we would go around for what that early show would, which had like fifty or sixty cues in it. We would go into every venue and just like piece the show together the day before this new show each time around it was literally like, technically it was like, okay, what lights they have. Okay. How can we make this queue work with the setup that's happening. And it was all just a written beforehand and it would make happy. It was like. I had the show vaguely written. I had like sixty minutes of material. And then we brought in like the production of the special is the production at toward with us the whole time. That was that wasn't just for the taming, like we had those lights and that set up. I had Joe Werner my sound guy, Chris Galante. My my lighting guy, and what we did is we would we toward the full technical show, but we were, we like, worked the show out and wrote the show with the lights. So we do show and then we'd all get together after going. Okay. What worked what didn't know k. tomorrow, let's try this spot hitting this time. Let's try green and then Greenwood. Didn't, but we would. We tested the tech of the show like you would work out the material of a show. That's what I was thinking about watching it because I'm a comedy nerd.
