"Or stop you from the education aspect of what your group does educating women while it's too early to tell What i can say is that I'm not worried for my own sake to in that regard because you can say enough kinda some there three genders there are male female and lady foreigners we come in a special category they would never impose the same kind of restrictions on me i said would on an african woman. A students sledding a country director in afghanistan for the norwegian refugee council. Thank you so much What good work you do there and thank you for sharing a few moments with us. Thank you for having me. This is here now and for a few months. Now people around phoenix. Arizona have been able to hail taxis without a human driver. The service is through waymo alphabet self driving car project. Sure your seat belt is fastened. The writer said four agents. Well oh my god. We're driving look at the front seat. Look at the front seat. There's nobody in this car but me. I'm the only person in this car. I'm sitting in the backseat and the car is driving. That was here. Now's peter o'dowd last year. Taking one of those first rides will link to that piece that here and now dot org. It was a major first step in the race to get autonomous cars onto america's roads but recently a headline from bloomberg khader i it reads way is ninety nine percent of the way to self driving cars. The last one percent is the hardest. Gabriel coppola covers the auto industry for bloomberg and joins us from detroit with more on that. Welcome to the show. Thank you thanks for having me. Yes so you and your colleague mark. Bergen wrote this latest article on way mo. And we're focusing on this company because as you right they are still ahead of everyone else in this effort with that. How good is way mos right now. Well it's fair to say there are still the best in the industry mean to this at this point. They are the only company that has managed to offer taxi. Rides with no human driver than it really is a very big achievement. At the same time you write that one percent that one percent is still a killer. What are the limitations. Well there's a term that people in the industry is a lot called the edge cases in really what that means is sort of those very rare occurrences just freak things that can happen or maybe not so free. you know. There's a weird construction going on in a road or there's a parked car and the computer can't tell if that person is parked in getting ready to leave or parked in though he person's getting out of the car there are some situations that you can't anticipate on if the robot hasn't seen it before it doesn't have the kind of human like intelligence to figure it out and so it's still needs human help in that regard right you also right. I mean something. Like weather handling rain or sleet or snow. They've got to figure out all of those types of conditions as well but once they get all of that figured out there's also a lot of questions about manufacturing capacity. what have you learned. Yeah waymo took over. They leased plant here in detroit in a neighborhood called him traffic a few years ago and this was kind of hailed by the ceo at the time of this is the world's first autonomous vehicle manufacturing plant. We're going to you know. Be cranking out rubber taxis and things like that but when i spoke to some of the folks that have actually worked inside the plant. Work there They described a situation which was much more kind of painstaking and difficult but basically what they're doing is they're taking cars from for example jaguar land rover which makes the electric i pace suv. That waymo is now. Deploying in san francisco engineers come in. They have to kinda hook up all the special sensors the kind of eyes and ears and brain the car. Hook it all together. The problem is we can take a car apart like that even partially and you put it back together. You might misplace a wire and then and then. The car doesn't work then so y'all kayla call up an engineer in london over. You know it's a problem that engineers have to figure out and takes days. That's very different from what you imagined with like sort of you know. High volume manufacturing where. There's an assembly line cars. Just being cranked out. This is going to slow and it's manual in. Its people taking things apart and putting them back together right with that though right there up against traditional auto companies. They're still ahead of all of them but waymo is a tech industry and its roots are in the tech industry. Who are they up against in the automotive industry in this race to get these driverless cars on america's roadways. Yeah well there's been some consolidation. I would say because this is such an expensive project. A lot of companies. Just kind of throw in. The towel uber threw in the towel recently and sold his business. That we don't want to deal with this anymore but you still got crews which is controlled by general motors. Gm you've got argo controlled by ford. There's a company called aurora which is actually founded by Some top engineers from google itself and tesla that are still pursuing this and one of the things. I found interesting in the story was. There's this big debate. You know between silicon valley to them a software problem. There's a certain arrogance about it. They think they can solve any problem. The world we just throw a lot of software engineers at it and they don't always at least for folks in detroit they feel like they don't always appreciate how complex manufacturing is so. There's kind of a debate. I think i sense to debate between how important that manufacturing stuff really is you know what for my reporting. It sounded like it was a serious headache. Wayman will dispute that and say it's not but you know i've talked to people who say no. It really is an issue. What are some of the regulatory environment challenges for a company like this even if they built a perfect autonomous vehicle. Can they just put it on on the road whenever they want to. Great question As of yet the government the federal government does not have a standard. that says. This is what you have to prove. You can do to say an autonomous vehicles safe. It's really State by state. Some states are more lax than others but there are autonomous vehicles being tested all over the country a lot of these companies flocked to states that have less regulation less disclosure requirements. Things like that so while everybody is start out in california. Now you see people working. In arizona and florida which have more i guess Lax or more accommodating regulatory environment another challenge with waymo is also internal strife. There have been some changes in leadership. Yes what i think you're referring to earlier this year the ceo. John craft chick who had he actually was an auto executive who has kind of brought into waymo to kind of help. Grow the business side. He left in the spring and a lot of other pretty pie. Level executives left as well And that definitely did raise a lot of eyebrows about you know what's going on here. Why is there this big exodus of talent and As far as i can tell you know mark and i from our reporting. It's not that people don't still believe in the mission. They feel that it's taking a lot longer than they expected. And i think that's probably true for a lot of the self driving companies. If you look at sort of the peak hype that we were seeing twenty sixteen seventeen. This was right around the corner now. People realize that this is gonna take much longer to really achieve this. That's gabrielle coppola reporter for bloomberg talking with us about the challenges of bringing.

When i wonder what is it just harder to do than they thought it was. Maybe but tesla seems to be fine with its initiatives. Gm's cruise is starting to drive around san francisco. Although i have to say what if you ever see one of these. Do you like avoid them. Like if you see one of the self driving vehicles never think too. I if i ever see him i usually just sorta stop what i'm doing in his marvel at it because it's exp interested in tech. Yeah it wasn't that. I probably should run. Wasn't that what happened when the when the bus one bosses something you but that was good news. According to google of the engineers said well That was a tricky situation because if the bus had been merely a passenger vehicle the waymo made an assumption that would slow down for it as it. Reentered traffic was stopped by construction. Sign and so it had to reenter traffic and it and the engineers said now. We know if a buses coming don't assume they're going to give way and so we've learned something. It was a it was a minor. Fender bender wasn't like a horrific. Ed the buses we used to like google out of their way and they changed the code. So it didn't mean this unfortunate the updated. The code is unit testing involved. A fender bender though is tesla's one's done. Yeah you don't wanna burst into flame. Threes decapitate not rushing to the divider. Eighty-five yeah that was sad. They hired a guy named john craft chick who's very well known in the industry and he quit Because waymo just wasn't. I read between the lines moving as fast as they had been planning to move joined.

"So at the beginning of the year waymo said it was no longer going to use the term self driving to describe the company's autonomous driving technology. Any more detailed explanation that way most ceo. John craft kick. I think that's how you say it offered some more insight on why the company made the move on. What's the self he went on to say that the term self-driving did not accurately describe the technology of the company was building. Saying is the self the car if so it doesn't really do good service to the product. We're working on arcelor product. That way mows the drivers when you say self driving. It takes waymo out of the equation but really. They've just shifted all the terms all their terminology. They've shifted away from self-driving autonomous driving. The industry official officials say this is a bigger problem in the industry because consumers are a little bit confused as to what self-driving truly means as we all know true. Self-driving doesn't require a driver behind the wheel. But some automakers are already using this term to describe level three and level four automated driving Tesla using full self-driving for their software and yes it's a very good software works very efficiently. But you still need to be behind the wheel of tesla but jason. What are some of your thoughts on on dropping this term self driving. And what are some of your ideas as far as how we can kind of accelerate. Avoid the confusion with consumers right. What are your thoughts. Yeah i my initial reaction and maybe there's a little too cynical was maybe he's hedging self-driving autonomous and you know why not just say level four or level five or whatever and maybe they are not confident that they're going to have no steering wheel in the car and own that that was my cynical. You know Thought on it and it seems to me like there's something going on where i think. The entire industry is taking a maybe tenure approach. Now 'cause like five six seven years ago when cruise was getting started in waymo starting to you know uncovering share a little. Bit of what they're doing. That was like five six seven years ago right. Yeah it seems like everybody is spinning out these units or raising money for them. We saw uber spun out. There's and then.

"Work more hours they miss look fewer days of work they're more engaged in what it is they're doing. so when we look at these two different kinds of people in the workplace I think what we often say is this person just happened to find the organization that suits him or her that it's just happenstance and lock that people find that calling what I find really interesting and intriguing about your work is that you suggested that they might actually be a more deliberate process involved so that more of us can find our work to be called it's a wonderful contrast that you draw here because I do think that there are two different schools of thought in in play around callings and one is that it's it's out there you have to find it it's a matter of of moving into the right role or the right position and the right organization and so on and then suddenly this will be unlocked in your your work will be this sort of joyful and in and of itself and which is very different from a view that I've come to which is that can certainly happen where people can stumble into something and realize this is what I would do even if I hit the lottery verses how is it that I can craft the boundaries of this job in the way that I think about its role in the world in such a way that I can come to experience for it perhaps as something that is meaningful in a way that potentially a calling could be one of the interesting things that happened recently is that we have this major power ball lock tree. that that a lot of people got excited about and our C. E. O. N. P. R. bought every one of the company lottery tickets and so we spent the day speculating what would be like to you know win two hundred million dollars. what I found most interesting was that we asked several people would you quit your job if you won this money and I found it very revealing what people's answers were so some people unhesitatingly said of course I quit my job why in the world what I keep working for I had two hundred million dollars in the bank and other people had exactly the opposite response which was sort of complete bewilderment why in the world when I quit my job when I'm doing something that I really enjoy doing and I think it speaks exactly to what you're saying here the people who are working because the work is an end in itself and the people who are working because the work as a means to an end I think that seeing that divine and seeing that for even in the same exact job that the working means such different things to different people doing doing that work often with the same level of education thing level of pain someone is fascinating to me and I think you know given the choice I think what we're seeing now as many people as they grow up and it's time to you know come to think about what they want to do in their work are yearning for something that will feel a bit more like a job that you wouldn't necessarily want to quit if you hit the lottery but I think that that's depending on your theory of of how these things work if you think it's a magical unicorn out there that you just have to find I think that that can be quite anxiety provoking for people so finding one of these great jobs is not one of these magical things that happens or it is a magical thing that can happen but it's also something that can be crafted as you suggest what's the way to do it well I mean I think that part of what is involved is thinking about what kinds of things do people feel they very much enjoy in that they think are important in the world whether those are tasks that have to get done because they help the world function in a way that is a real benefit to society or to other people to see how and where might you start to do things to make that work here on in a way that could feel even more fulfilling you also look to efforts to try and change what it is the job itself is so you get hired for a job you're a maybe a a typist or maybe or a computer program are you maybe a man. but then you can start working to expand the contours of what the job description actually yes. yes one of the things that's interesting that I want to point out is that it's not only about expanding with those boundaries are in taking on more and doing more John crafting can also involves restricting that battery if you will so maybe delegating or even pulling back or dropping some of the tasks that may be defined as part of the job that over time people perhaps come to realize are not actually central to getting done or or executing on the kinds of things that the organization feels that they ought to be responsible for not a lot of people feel like they don't have the latitude to make those changes that I'm stock my manager won't allow me to modify what I'm doing there are ways that I can see I can be more productive and more useful to the organization but I feel constrained in Hamden those are real concerns. they absolutely are and even in jobs where this kind of crafting is explicitly forbidden you still see people engaging in it and I think it usually works like this you recognize what it is that the organization expects you to accomplish and you see where do you have the degrees of freedom that you might take advantage of to do that in a way that maybe from a process point of view or from a how you order the tasks point of view or who you interact with the get that work done point of view how you can essentially customized out in a way that makes the experience more enjoyable more meaningful is.

Now, a an assumption rarely that there are many more of possible terrorists out there from this small fringe group that one though that has been active now for sometime and one which Muslim leaders that we've spoken to here work complaining about as far back as twenty fifteen to the government and the intelligence services. About one hundred Sri Lankan students gathered on the Wayne State campus for a silent prayer vigil. After the Easter Sunday bombing some of the signs read pray for our motherland. May there be love and peace in every heart. We will rise again stronger than ever as one nation three hundred twenty one deaths five hundred injured and that is Ken.

"Chemical. The big story continues here on WJR tonight. Well, we've all heard of them the flying cars, right? Joins Jack flying cars. Thanks to the Jetsons. We thought we'd be there by now. The first step is a Thomas vehicles, of course. And some wonder when will we see more of them on the roads, you can spot one or two here, and there Tom Krisher is with the Associated Press, and he talks with Frank Beckmann about that very topic. The key question that everybody keeps asking when are we going to see them and you point out right away? Started the second paragraph and optimistic assessment is ten years. But even that as you said is optimistic, right? That's correct. That's seen them everywhere. There will be some small scale tests. You're seeing some shuttles downtown, Detroit and on the north campus. The university of Michigan for instance, taking only run in certain weather conditions, and they have the same obstacle that the rest of the economist car companies are facing right now. What are what are some of those obstacles? Let's put them out. They have trouble with snow. If you block the lay mines, you can't shoot. Elaine lines Kurds, and then the Widar which is the laser laser detectors, they send out light beans and they get confused by snowflakes. They think that they might be obstacle. So they haven't trouble with that. That's why you see any of that the large-scale testing being gun in warmer climates, like Arizona or California. Well that that may be good for the testing. But in the end these cars, if we're gonna have autonomous vehicles everywhere, and driverless cars, they're gonna have to be able to perform in the snow. Aren't they? That's correct unless you living forever. But even there they have sandstorms on occasion. And that was black the sensors to to be able to perform an all weather conditions in all over the place. That's not going to happen anytime soon that's going to be decades. John crackerjack who who used to be the head of Hyundai here. He says that they may never happen where they're everywhere, but they will be, you know, probably within a decade in certain tests areas within large metro areas. Okay. But but long term I mean, if we're only doing testing in metropolitan areas ten years from now man that that that would indicate to me that the full use autonomous vehicles everywhere. Might be fifty years. You know, or or you said the one expert said never. Yeah. I think I've I've heard twenty thirty twenty thirty five, you know, Chris arms and who used to run Google autonomous car unit. He he's the optimist. He's saying ten years. He has a small company called Aurora innovation dot San Francisco that it's also in Pittsburgh. They he thinks that ten years is is you know, you might see them in every city, but that's probably on the optimistic end. Most people you talk to say it will be beyond that. But again, you you mentioned this testing being done because the the radar and various parts of the car that pick up signals from outside whether it be lane lines or something else. They get confused by the snow and bad weather that that seems to be in. And then you throw in the sand wins, the throw Santa crossroads Arizona, California, Nevada etcetera that would seem to be. A no go for these cars on how do you overcome that? How do you? How do you teach sensors to tell the difference whether our systems that operate on very detailed three D mapping Argo is working on that. That's the Ford the forge invested in where they they know by taking measurements off of fixed objects where they are in the lane line. So they don't need the lane lines. They can stay centered without it those are very limited areas right now. And then they're they're working on changing the frequency that the light beam frequency for the lighter detectors, so that they could see three snowflakes essentially, so there are ways to do it. But they're still working on it. And those are all still on the test is at this point. And then amazing, and I can spot a snowflake from a mile away you very well. Very well driving. Even though we have what is it? Thirty seven thirty eight thousand Potala in the United States every year. There are not that many per million miles driven humans do pretty well at processing all the information. Eventually, I think these systems will be an improvement. But, you know, humans are not as bad as it sounds had Dr Thomas, and you also put out in your piece that the the whole industry of autonomous vehicle. Driving suffered a big setback with that crash out in was it Arizona last March when it was may apple believe, they everything was moving very quickly and probably too fast toward deploying these these comments car unit, and they Waymo was going to have an autonomous shuttle with no human backup drivers GM cruise automation was going to do with this year. They're still saying that they. You may that was all moving at a very fast speed. And then once this crash everybody kind of slowed down reviewed their safety procedures. And and you know, wanted to make sure that everything was safe. Nobody wants to be the next company that causes something like this. Although it will happen at some point. And we'll have more with Detroit based Associated Press auto writer, Tom Krisher autonomous vehicles might be awhile here on the Frank Beckmann show, Tom Cruise is with us. He's the auto writer for the Associated Press based right here in Detroit lives in selene. He's been all over the country. Looking at the test sites for autonomous vehicles wrote a great piece called five reasons why autonomous cars aren't coming anytime soon. And he said the optimistic assessment is we could see them within ten years might be a lot longer than that. It might be never. You talked about snowing weather being a problem the pavement lines and curbs being. A problem. The other three let's get to those one at a time dealing with human driver's. That's going to be can can break the rules. And the the cars have to be ready for that. They also double part they parallel park. There's humans that are pedestrian. I don't know if you've ever been to the strip district near Pittsburgh's downtown. But that's where a lot of the testing takes place, and I was in an Argo car, and it was trying to make a right turn. There was a UPS truck that was double parked and kinda had it's rear end out in in part of the lane. We were going into there was a pedestrian crossing. And then there was another car parallel parking. And so it had the prophet all that information, and it just stopped it kind of waited. And the driver the human backup had to take over because he didn't want to block the intersection. So you move the car forward to get it out of the intersection waiting for the truck to clear and the Nicole by and everything else, and then he he proceeded, but. The guy I was with from from Argo said that it would eventually figured out how but it took some time, and they didn't want to block the traffic. Humans also break the law, and you know, they crossed double yellow lines. They do all kinds of things that are kind of local customs and autonomous cars after be programmed to do the deal with that. And that's gonna take some time to. You also pointed out the that humans are here in some cases, not taking too well to the autonomous vehicles out there and have shown what you properly call antagonism, including a guy who pulled a gun on a driverless car. Yeah. That's the the Arizona Republic had that story a few months ago. I think in Chandler, which is a suburb. There were twenty one cases during the past two years where people had harassed way. Thomas tested out there. Somebody threw rocks atoms tires. Got slashed a Jeep forced one the Waymo vans off the road. So there there are some people who just don't like the things we in Pittsburgh. A woman was yelling at us and shaking her finger at us because we were waiting to make a right turn in an intersection, and she actually blew through a stops. And then blamed it on the autonomous car. Beautiful. Well. That's that's the human driver though. Okay. It's having trouble making left turns. Yeah. And that that came from John craft ticket Waymo, which surprised me they've they've got a lot of our testing out in California and in Arizona, and, but you know, as a human you have trouble, judging how fast the car is coming toward you, and whether you should turn left in front of it. That's always a challenge, and it's very difficult for us. And it's very difficult for the economist vehicles as well Waymo still working on that they're still trying to make it safe. I've I've had many times where I've turned left in front of somebody and then wished I had because it was too close and it's hard to judge. Sometimes look mom, no hands..

Most of the guys that can make. Right now. He's. Way playing. We want to go. So I'm excited for that. Can't argue with that win by the three lose by the three. I still think they're best chances when they went to seven games with the warriors and Paul got hurt. And the warriors went on and one. Yeah, they had everything going that way. They couldn't throw the ocean. And they couldn't make three point shot. What did they shoot in the second half? I mean, it was like it was unbelievable. See I don't think that's any to me. He's right. I know anybody who's watched the rockets this year and say boy harden is great. They're going to they got a chance for the title. It's just one guy doing it was actually pretty balanced comments in a reaction. I mean, that's a pretty unique there Kobe. I grieve Kobe. You know, basically saying, hey, look, you know, you're going to eyeso- a guy at the top of the circle in the middle of the floor while you know, in the regular season weren't and you're not gearing for that. It's one thing. But when it's the playoffs, and you're watching tons of film, and you've got nine different coaches were I'll look into stop. You know, turn off the other teams water. It's easy to turn that off. And I thought Hardin had a pretty balanced reaction. I agree with harden. It's like, you know, what right now because of the injuries. This is the way he's got play. And it's it's a fun style to watch. But I also agree with but you're not winning rings physically. And mentally, you know, where you're doing it all by yourself. You know, he he's gonna wear out. Like, I said he. I just I don't think you look at Houston and think they're going to contend at all. But that's again, they're going to be some games when those threes or going where you go man look at the rockets, but now by the way, Wes Welker the new Niner wide receiver coach that came out. That's now officially we mentioned that on the show yesterday. And that is now an official deal. And before we go to the lines. We've got a bunch of people want to weigh in on the text line about the raiders and the Niners and sharing Levis nine hundred five says the raiders that are reopen negotiations. The city of Oakland, the Coliseum will be the only place that doesn't cost them an arm and a leg. You know, these they've got a battle going on with Oakland. Mark Davis says, hey, you're gonna sue me. Then I don't want anything to do with you. So that's dude shaking my head right now raider fans will never convert to becoming a forty Niner fan. You're delirious. I'm not delirious. And actually there are lots of forty Niner fans right now that if you went and interviewed them you'd find out they were raider fans, they were raider fans in the nineteen seventies. They were raider fans until the raiders bolted to LA in the early eighties. They were raider fans and Super Bowl fifteen and they became Niner fans after their team left. Now is one year advertise it, but maybe they're not the ones wearing the skull-and-crossbone painting their faces, but lots of raider fans became Niner fans, and it will happen again. I'd be with you. If you said, hey for ten years, let's work out a deal and the raiders are gonna stay in the bay area. Yeah. But they're they're all set the stadiums. Being built in Vegas. Let them go. It the other way. Okay. You got a one year window to show people that hey, you know, what can watching NFL football at Levi stadium? Sunday afternoon is a nice experience. And. Yeah, your teams the raiders, but. Maybe you don't come every game. If you're not a Niner fan, but maybe you come to Levi's four or five times a year. And if enough fans do that, I think if you're the forty Niners, it's probably worthwhile. Boy, we're really a disagreement if I'm running the forty Niners, I want my I wanna win get my fan base back to you know, what it was when we were on top. I if I need the raider fans to make make me whole gives you more money more money that you spend on free agents if you want all right. Hey, current and Pleasanton where are you? Larry's got a big heart welcoming the raiders to stay one more year. I say get the hell out and get the hell out. Now, you're on Cambier. I agree with you, Gary. I think that raider fans just seeing a nice stadium in San Francisco is not gonna make the real authentic raider fans. Switch over to being Niner fans, and you know on peo- that we're moving to Vegas, but it's not gonna go into clucking to make me want to go to Levi stadium and spend hundreds of dollars there to watch Niner games. When really I'm a raider fan. I'd rather spend a couple of hundred bucks drive down to Vegas and catch a game there then go to Levi for the Niners. It's a shame current. But we just should Larry's got a big heart for all teams you and I were cold blooded get the hell out, then we're in agreement. Yup. We're in agreement. Gary, you're my brother. You're my brother to get to here. You are. Thank you very much. That's current who knows his stuff. I'd Kyle in Vacaville, you're on KABC more comment. I was going to tell you guys to get a room. There's nothing wrong with that even even Robert Kraft and Tom Brady showed me this didn't touch as much as you guys know. My goodness. Robert see Robert Kraft a Brady. You want to stop by the doctor if you got mono. No, I just all I can think of so much smooching going on in that last boat. Crafts son Brady whose. Daniel poor guy watching that gave pump his fist xactly. But you gotta throw one guy out, you know, that old line. We can't make it with three of us in the boat. Who does Robert thrower throws out his son and keeps Brady it's so sad. Gladiator? I know you call them a dark, you'll feel bad for that guy. Gotta sit there Daniel craft. I feel bad. I won the lucky, gene pool. I know. But that's never got do Jack and the rest of his life. Something about sitting there. Watching your father lead, the greatest dynasty industry of the NFL. But just salivate over another human being you want your dad to take you. I the worst thing is, you know, in private circles that Jonathan Kraft, you know, when he's sitting there when he's in the club or when he spinning yarns to his buddies at the country club. Well, this is what I did. And this is what I what I it's all legit. And if it's not Belleci gets Brady. And if it's not Brady, it's ten other guys, and it's not you. But somehow John craft. I'm thinking thinks it's him having a little party there to get together after the parade. And if Brady was jerky says, Mr. crabs anyway, and get your son out of here studying that just annoy me, and then the fly, listen you want you want your father? Yard is Robert Kraft. Love Tom Brady, more than sunshine. I know. Lips did touch. You. Why your son did touch? Did you showed me? And I did. Yeah. I mean, it was it was like, you know, you see somebody in the hallway and you go, right? They go, right. You go left go left and all of a sudden say, hey, hey, look at this. We're doing a little dance craft and Brady did on the field with their mouths. Okay. And they literally they literally their lips touch. Do you think he's ever touched the lips of son Jonathan probably not probably not God, you want your dad to love you first. And then somebody go ahead. Kyle Vacaville you with Larry you've got an open heart and raiders and forty nine fall in love or have you lived a little, and we all nothing lead the witness just ask him Kyle. How do you feel for John throwing up just thinking of Brady? Oh my gosh. I'm all have do you think if they're in a boat, and somehow they're going to sink, unless one guy goes out that Robert Kraft would keep Brady or his son Jonathan Kraft would be eaten by sharks? He keep Brady and all of his, you know, his lineage over anybody in the craft honest after Sunday property Edelman to jeez. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. See, johnny. Yeah. Kyle you were making a joke out of it. But don't you want your dad to love you more than any other human being? Well, I hope so hopefully, we'll go. No. Of course. Of course. Of course, somebody somebody said that Robert Kraft is a Colonel Sanders haircut. Kyle. What do you say you're on Camby are about this raider forty-nine thing I'd say as a raider fan? I don't want to cross enemy lines to a stadium. That's drenched in red on forty Niners museum and all of that. No just. Niner and the in giant fan play play or coal. You know, both teams under one stadiums. You know for the giants much raise ratings are going to the playoffs. But where you wanted to play. That's the thing rather you being honest with us you'd rather play at a baseball stadium. That's kinda reconfigured with a with partial stands, then then go down. And really, I mean, most of the raider fans. I mean Milpitas that to thirty seven it's pretty close. I mean, I most of the raider fans, I think could get Levi's faster than you just because it's the Niners home. That's an always be a second class citizen. We're talking about ten dates. Well, that's ten times you'd go down there. And no, hey, the forty Niners saved us for one year. Kyle. We don't want anybody anything. Do we can go to a raider game on Sunday or call in? And then go to a giants game later in the week. And I'll be like a pig in the mud it'd be happy. As can be that'd be awesome. So so you again, make sure pigging the mud you wanna leave. Our at the giants baseball stadium. Yes. Okay. Fair enough. We've got nine one six. Here. It's Jerry I used to love your comments and your takes. But now, the more I listened the more you have lost it you root for the dodgers against the raiders playing it Levi's what happened to you. Used to be so great. Nine one six. Well, benign ones twenty great Napier. That's the last time ago and his show. Did he really say all that really might God's word for word. Am feeling bad. Pause. I I did pause. No. It's just. Guys. See I think the LA thing is taking that and really running with these Jerry you're in a hole, if it was up to you Oakland in the East Bay would not exist. That's not true. I lived in a rental. Yes. Tell that to your advertisers. My goodness. Five one os getting real in your kitchen? Wow. That's really bad stuff. That's so bad. And I will say it again when I was when the as we're going whatever team is winning. That's how it works. When the as LaRussa and all that gang. We did more positive stuff on the as we get on. There. You're crazy. They think the raider fans won't trash Levi's especially on the last game. I mean, come on seriously. What what are we talking about? We're talking about. It's there an NFL team. It's an NFL stadium. It's brand new. That's all, you know, put our feelings aside and just go I'd rather watch an NFL product in an NFL stadium..

I think the American thinker had a story today saying he was afraid that for exposing a racist. He would be labeled a racist. Unfortunately, Gillespie was not man enough to stand up the potential scurrilous attacks. Well, I that's that convinced me, so do you think how many people are going to see the state of the union tomorrow? Got to be the biggest state of the union ever. Steve. What do you think? I don't think it'd be the biggest ever. No, no. I don't think anything's the biggest ever visit Trump.

All the all these stupid award shows, no matter whether they're records or movies or TV, they always they just keep dropping and dropping again. I think it's really the distribution point there. They can't they don't measure that they don't have measurement systems to to collect all of the distribution points, and then converted back to ratings. Unfortunately, not yet. Plus, there's a million different things to be watching. Well, that's there is a bit of fractionals Asian out there. A few years back about Gilligan's island when it got cancelled after three or four years it had some like thirty five million viewers, right? And they and they had to just make a decision. What was the last show to be cut from CBS at year? They just pick that I mean if today that would have twice as many viewers or maybe three times as many viewers as any primetime comedy thirty five million is a gigantic. That's yeah. So that that number's gone. That's not to be seen again. That's ten percent of the viewing audience. Right. So America, probably twenty. So yeah, I think tomorrow is going to be an interesting. He's going to have to hit hit a little bit out of the park. If he's going to get any movement at all towards. His hope hoped wall budget. Well, he's we saw we weren't mar-a-lago on Saturday night.

By the way, we're Limerick guy says I Russell Bill Russell play thirteen seasons and won eleven championships. Sorry brady. It's not even close. Yeah. I I know Limerick guy understand those numbers. But the thing is there were like eight teams in the league back in those days. It was different. It was a different world within again, they're twenty two members of a team and twelve coaches so it whereas Russell Russell against probably half the teams he played. So there's an argument to be made their argument to be made. But also the Jones boys and later on havilcek. And and in the beginning Cousy and Heinsohn. I mean. He asked without a doubt. And he had a great coach in red, certainly. Yeah. Someone says brow Brady sucked yesterday. The patriots won. Because the Rams absolutely pathetic. Well, I again, blame the officials down in New Orleans for that. I mean, that's. Did you lucky? Our team is our team through side. Are you stood? I thought your name was bitten not crap. We we are very lucky. I mean, we are very lucky as I mean, if you think about it, we we get to play the team that really shouldn't have been there the year before that we win by. Well. The time before that we win by a interception. That shouldn't have been an interception. They should have run it. But that's I mean, there's a reason why Pete Carroll didn't last as coach of the patriots. Right. I mean, he he was he's kind of a dope. But Brady's got quite a halo around him. I mean, he's you know, he's been a very ways. He's got gotta halo around. What about that nitwit from Harry Potter? Who said, you know, we could have had better get rid of that hat, and this this goofy stuff that they're the team of the White House. Are team. I agree. There hated team. I just came from South Carolina. And all I could hear about is. We can't we wanna watch the patriots slaughtered. I mean the entire country. Guess what? Two more national championships. They'll be saying the same thing about the Tigers w ruined for Alabama crimson tide. They've got a great team. So that's you know, it's just one of those they'll change quickly enough.

No, oh in them. So we don't know exactly when that will happen. And in fact, if anything it's actually adding cost you have a more expensive vehicles and a driver behind it. So that that's you know, that's the caveat here. But if they find out that they're able to really make this work if the drivers don't have to constantly intervene. They make it approval within the next year or two to start fielding driverless vehicles completely driverless and that changes the equation because you take the driver out the biggest cost of a ridesharing vehicle and the ridesharing service goes away. Suddenly, you potentially make it possible for companies like Waymo one goo- Uber lift and some of the others that are coming to actually undercut the idea of owning vehicle and particular particularly in urban markets that may get thousands even millions of drivers to abandon the idea of personal via.

But also, the understanding I think by the public, and maybe the government is well that this is a technology that is coming that at some point. It's going to be there. And maybe it is even a little bit sooner rather than later. And I mean, it's always been a topic filled with a lot of hype. And so at the hyped end of expectations. I think this year was a year of a little bit of realism and retrenchment. There was the Uber death in Phoenix. And all that. But we're going to see more and more experimentation, more and more pilots. If you take the percentage of total vehicle miles traveled is it going to be a huge percentage. No. But the pilots help the companies learn and get better improve their algorithms. And it lets the public see these new things kind of be more realistic about what works, and what doesn't, you know, you're going to find them slow in that they do weird quirky things of stopping at times. You you never would as a driver because that's part of working out. How it how it goes? But all of its kind of slow movement.

Why are you at the biggest tech conference of the year? It's also become one of the biggest auto shows of the year because there's so much focus on self driving cars and connected cars that this is become a place that is filled with auto companies and auto suppliers. All right. Tell us some of the things that you've seen that we're going to experience in our cars. Yeah. So it's interesting. This show has been a little more muted, and it's predictions of our fabulous transportation future. Just a few years ago. It was all about, you know, self driving cars Mercedes, sorta a fabulous concept that seems very Jetsons. And now, you know, as these things are actually starting to arise people are realizing just how hard technological challenge. They'll be so we're seeing more things like while Mercedeses diamond is doing util utilitarian sort of subtle rather than a big Jetsons car. And we're hearing more about driver assistance from companies like Toyota than we are about full self-driving and even Waymo, which is, you know, the leader in the self-driving race, Google self-driving unit has launched a service, but it has a human minder behind the wheel, and and their CEO John craft checker is now saying, you know, we'll never have fully self-driving cars. And wondering what the mood is like this. This year. Because we have heard a lot about the slowdown in the global auto sales world. And I'm just wondering I'm noticing less excess or is it is it as exuberant as ever. Definitely it is less excess. General Motors really doesn't have much of a presence here at all this year. Of course, they made a lot of announcements last month about closing factories in laying off workers. So you're seeing fewer of those sorts of participants. Or if they're here, they're not being quite as splashy. There is a somber tone, particularly among the automakers as they can perhaps there first down year in many years. Now isn't the future all about that? I mean, this is part of the revolution. That is taking place in the automobile, not just in the cabin. But all of the sensors that exist in a car can now send that information to the cloud, and you can also get emergency service, anywhere, right? Yeah. And that's where a lot of the discussion is ten that's around cars being connected connected to each other connected to the cloud connected to stop lights and pedestrians. Ford announced this. Week that it's going with going to outfit all of its cars by twenty twenty two with a with a let's call the V to X vehicle to everything technology using the five G broadband that's coming. And so these are the sorts of things they're not necessarily, you know, taking human drivers out entirely. But it's getting cars connected, which will make them safer on the road. And also more convenient those Ford cars would be able to just pay their Bill the McDonald's drive-thru without taking their wallet out of their pocket. So if the big automakers are having less of a presence there who's taking their place. Well, you know, we continue to see a lot of kind of savvy startups in the space. I was talking to one yesterday that specializes in driverless delivery you Dell. And this is the sort of things that are emerging. These things are better a little more utilitarian less focus on. Humans moving around in cars with robots at the wheel. What about the report from Toyota that they've decided to share information about their automated safety system that uses that self driving technology to keep cars from crashing? Yeah. That was a remarkable announcement Toyota has developed this thing called the guardian system, which is a driver assist system. It's not fully Thomas. But it it really sort of corrects human errors in real time. It can steer a car around an accident. It can actually accelerate a car to avoid someone who's about to hit you on the side or in another configuration. It's it's pretty amazing technology that they've been developing for several years, and they feel like it has such lifesaving NFL that they shouldn't keep it to themselves. So they're they're planning to share it with any other company that wants to have it. They don't know. Exactly. How yet? Going to license the technology or they can sell the whole systems they should benefit from that. Don't don't make money from that. But it does seem like, you know, an act to to help society. All right. Well, thanks very much for being with us. Keith Naughton joining us from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Maybe they'll rename it.
