The Inspiring Story of Margaret E. Knight

"So margaret louise night. She was a prolific american inventor of machines and mechanisms for a variety of industrial everyday purposes. Margaret was nicknamed maddie mit. She lived with her widowed mother and older brothers. Charlie and jim in a little house in york maine. she was born in eighteen. Thirty eight by the way so after her father passed away mattie had inherited his toolbox and she liked to think of things that could be made with these tools and she drew them in a little notebook that she labeled my inventions. Mattie demonstrated knack for tools and mentioned from an early age making toys kites sleds and household items in as little girl. She preferred to play with woodworking tools. Instead of dolls saying that quote the only thing she wanted whereas a jack knife gimblett and pieces of wood. She knew she wanted good for her so when she was eleven. Maddie's finley moved to manchester new hampshire to work in the textile mills there and so matty was going to continue going to school only going so far as a complete her elementary school education and she got to know the head engineer there while wandering around the grounds after school waiting for her family to be done with their like fourteen to eighteen hour shifts. Sure textile mills. Yeah including like her twelve year old brother and fourteen so at age twelve. She started working the mill herself and aloom ow function and injured a worker So it turns out that one of the leading causes of serious injuries at the mill that she had observed was the propensity of the steel-tipped flying shuttles so those were manipulated by workers to unite the left in the warp threads in their weaves. I'm so these shuttles would come free of their looms and they would like shoot off the machines high-velocity even at like the slightest employee error. So like there were people dying from this. There are people like you know basically like you're getting almost shot. Yeah basically tipped metal thing like flying off a machine you know so it was really dangerous and so matty what she did. She created a guard. That would stop the shuttle from coming off of the machine if it malfunctioned. So like the exact details of this device have kind of been lost to history but mentions of it came out throughout published stories of her work and her Mentions articles that will get into so again because this was the mid nineteenth century. And why would anybody document what they actually did anyway. So workman who installed these types of guards all the looms and all the males in manchester. So this sounds like a big deal. She clearly didn't make any money for sure. You know maybe save some lives so after she turned eighteen. Mattie left manchester for better opportunities She worked in several different factories on new england along with other short-term technical jobs too so that she could keep

Lightning Bugs, Fireflies - Call Them What You Will, They're Awesome

"All right. Mattie you are here to talk about lightning bugs or as you point out beatles with flashlight butts yes the family of beetles. We call firefly's lamb. Purity are extremely diverse. There are more than two thousand species in that family and they live on every continent except antarctica. So emily they can look and behave very differently. one type can grow to be the length of your palm. There are firefly's that live most of their lives in water. Emily some place don't even fly and some don't flash for that matter so you know not everything. We'll be talking about today. Holds true for every species. So what you're saying is you couldn't just stick to one species because you've got excited and distracted by all the facts about all the species is that right. Maybe i did. Maybe i didn't. You'll be happy for it. I'll say that so. Who did you talk to about. This constellation of creatures. I called up. Stephanie vice a phd student in rio de janeiro. She's an entomologist who studies firefly's and just like us her love of firefly's started in childhood. I have a great memory of my childhood summer trips with my family and also i love to say they shining the forest when i do my field words. She says that there's one thing that applies to all firefly's and that's that firefly's have different lay stages and the larval stage in my opinion is by far the coolest firefly's spend most of their lives in the a lot of ro stage in when she says most she means like almost all of their lives are spent as larvae. I mean some spend one to two years just being voracious low babies. So the adult. Firefly's that i see flying around on the east coast china flash and find a mate. That's like a short period of their lives. Yeah yeah i mean. Some only live as adults for like a few weeks total. They're just out here. Trying to find a mate fertilize some eggs and die.

Against the delta variant these vaccines are designed to prevent vaccinated people from getting really sick or dying and they are still doing a stellar job of that. That's absolutely right. These infections and vaccinated people tend to be much less severe especially in otherwise healthy. People symptoms are mostly mild. Some people are as symptomatic. They don't get any symptoms at all now me personally. I don't even want that win. How unpredictable there's viruses but the bear concern here. Mattie is that even if you aren't very sick you could spread the delta very empty others people who are much more vulnerable and they could get sick and die. Plus we've talked about this on the show alah the longer. That cove is circulating in our population. The more likely it is for a variant to emerge. That could beat the vaccine so really everybody has a stake in this. You know it's a good point. I mean a virus cannot mutate if it's not replicating and so as delta circulates and cases rise. We know the viruses trying to outsmart us. Okay l let's dig this guidance a little bit more so the cdc now says if you live in an area with substantial or high spread of the virus everyone should mask up indoors..

"Right alison just two little months ago. You and i were on the show talking about how the cdc said vaccinated people should feel free to lose their masks in almost all settings including indoors. Yeah i mean this guy was basically based on the honor system in most places you just kind of had to take someone's word for it whether they were vaccinated and every member matter. You and i shared some concerns about vaccine equity rates. Vaccinations still being low. And how this might affect people who are most vulnerable now here. We are today amid a surge of cases here to talk about how the cdc is now modifying some of that guidance. Can you tell us more about how the cdc made this decision. Sure it really comes down to two main factors. I mean the delta variant and slowing vaccinations about thirty percent of adults remain unvaccinated in the us.

"Alison. Over the weekend rhode island became the eighth state to reach a goal set by president biden to get seventy percent of adults vaccinated with at least one shot by july. Fourth is the rest of the country on track lost so far. Many of the smaller northeastern states have reached this goal. I including maine massachusetts vermont and new jersey nationwide about sixty one percent of adults have received their first dose and very close to half are now fully vaccinated so this is all good news but in states. Vaccinations remain much lower including alabama mississippi. Arkansas utah it's kind of unclear. I mean nationwide. The number of daily. Vaccinations has declined over the last month. Part of this. Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates. It turns out that they can also help the close. The equity gallon. Vaccinations and you know. In recent weeks mega retailers including target and walmart have announced compensation and incentives for hourly employees who get vaccinated some employees have been offered cash bonuses.

Too Soon? The CDC Relaxes Mask Guidance for Fully Vaccinated

"Okay ellison aubrey. Since the new mass guidance from the cdc came out different groups. Industries have responded. Let's start with businesses. Sure i mean. Many of the big retailers are dropping their masking requirements including walmart. Costco starbucks walmart says. It supports employees. Who may choose to continue to wear masks. Even if they're fully vaccinated and all of these chains are encouraging people who are not vaccinated to continue to mask now over the weekend cd. Rochelle walinsky was pressed about the new policy and she cautioned. That masks will be with us for a while. Likely said a lot of people are not vaccinated and they should be masking in many settings. He or she is on nbc. This was not permission to shed masks for everybody everywhere. This was really science driven individual assessment of your risk. And now we all need to work together and cdc is hard at work now saying what does this mean for schools for travel for camps for businesses. I think what she's getting at here. Mattie is there is more guidance to come now. They've shifted this strategy unmasking. A lot of the other guidance for what to do in the office what to do in schools will need to get looked at again reviewed now given how hard it is to police the new policy. I mean it's hard to know who is or isn't vaccinated. This really just comes down to the honor system and dr walinsky ask people to be honest with themselves because people who are not vaccinated are putting themselves at risk. Yeah i i mean alison.

The Origins of the Phrase 'Badgering' Will Surprise You

"Mattie we are back with an episode of a fan favorite animal slander this series where we look at common phrases about animals and find out if there's any truth to them that's right so today we are looking into the term badgering and this one isn't as straightforward of the others. I was trying to figure out. You know our badgers particularly tenacious. Are they insistent. Like do they know each other more than other critters. And what i found is that there's absolutely no badger driven reason for this phrase The experts that i talked to said generally speaking. Badgers are pretty conflict. Avoidance actually in the origins of the word. Badgering are pretty dark and not at all. No no all right. It sounds like we're to blame for what is it. So what. I have been able to find at least is that the phrase probably comes from this horrific practice of badger baiting which has a history in a few places including the uk where people sick dogs on badgers for sport like the dogs are trained to find and pull the badgers out of their homes or confined space and attack them and over again. So the word badgering is probably actually based off. Doug behavior not anything. The badgers have done. That is objectively horrible. Yeah yeah the badgers are pretty much always killed. The dogs can get injured and killed two. It's awful and it's been legal for a long time in places like the uk but even with increased protections for badgers throughout the years. It's still a problem. I guess case closed yes. Slander mattie this has been very dark and very bleak. Did you put us through this.

Conflict Between Israel and Palestinians Continues to Escalate

"Israeli government's the current fighting with the Palestinians. Spilled over into clashes inside Israel. Separate mobs of Arab Israelis and Jews have gone on the rampage, attacking people from rival communities. This footage showed men carrying Israeli flags, pulling a man out of his car and beating him unconscious. Talked to said the man was seriously injured but is now stable. The Israeli president warned the nation was descending into a senseless civil war, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he wouldn't tolerate any lynchings from either Jews or Arab Israelis. However, at the same time he promised to step up attacks on militants in Gaza will deliver them blows. They haven't dreamt off, he said, after airstrikes destroyed a third tower block in the Palestinian territory. Palestinian president for his part, Mahmoud Abbas was defiant. Would you can you, Mattie? Is that America wants a ride. Direct my speech specifically to America and Israel. We are fed up. Go away from us. Leave us. We will stay like a thorn in your eyes. We will never leave our country and your occupation today we will not repeat what happened in 1948. Nor what happened in 1967. For some 350 airstrikes by Israel. The Palestinians say at least 67 people have been killed in Gaza, 16 of them Children. The Israeli army said Palestinian militants in the territory had fired around 1.5 1000 rockets since Monday, killing seven people, including a six year old boy in Israel. Our correspondent Tom

You might be able to You know have a little derby party and how they you know all those people. How they i'll take i'll take any increase That we can get well. And i've had this discussion over the years with the fact the have disgusted with with industry people to about What i would term. What is termed virtual attendance. Because if you take the simulcast dollars the handle at any venue you're able to divide it by the average handle per person to get a number. I mean on the racetrack. They have a number that they use Per person terms of handle When it comes to estimating attendance and if if it if it's open it's open gates if there's turnstiles obviously they they can get a head count but the one thing i don't understand we haven't done as an industry with this claim. Oh nobody's going to the races actually are a. It's the stupidest the stupidest dialogue there is. Because in fact there's more people going to the racetrack than ever before because they can. Now go to. Maybe six different racetracks a day with their handle. So don't tell me there's less people yes. There may be less people at three o'clock in the afternoon at one racetrack the middle of the week. But there's fifty two thousand attending that racetrack online. So stop with that ridiculous men that you know that. Oh no nobody's going to the races anymore. wrong yeah. Well i'll take for example our plate now granted. We're not. We're not a live attendance anywhere but you know for a rival racing day our candles. Probably you know low five figures on track because we're out in the middle of nowhere.

Here's what the CDC says fully vaccinated people can do

"Safai here with npr health correspondent. Alison aubrey hale. Said they agreed to be here mattie. So you're here because there was a press briefing by the white house. Covid nineteen response team on monday with some long awaited guidance. A morning. and thank you. I'm glad to be back with you today. Let's get started that. Cdc director rochelle walinsky and she said after weeks of steady decline new coronavirus cases. There's been a leveling of that decline the country's averaging about sixty thousand new cases a day. Yeah i mean it's not great caseload wise. We are pretty much where we were right. Before the winter surge and the most recent seven day average deaths is slightly lower than two thousand deaths per day. So that's pretty troubling but we'll landscape also said she was hopeful and she pointed to the approximately thirty one million people. That's about twelve percent of us adults who are fully vaccinated and is more americans vaccinated a growing body of evidence. Now tells us that there are some activities that fully vaccinated people can resume at low risk to themselves and mattie she went on to detail new cdc guidelines about what activities are considered safe for fully vaccinated people. Because everyone wants to get back to something. That looks kind of like normal or normal ish. I mean this is the news. People have been waiting for right. Vaccinated people can have a little more freedom to socialize but before we get ahead of ourselves. Alison let's make sure everyone knows what we mean. When we say believe excavated shirt so a person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after getting the second dose of either the pfizer or a modern of vaccines because those required two shots or two weeks. After the single dose of the johnson and johnson vaccine because for that one. You only need that. Single dose to be fully vaccinated. That's right now. These new guidelines are not the final word. There's sort of a baby step towards a return to normal doctor will linski made clear during the briefing. The science of covid nineteen is complex and our understanding of the virus continues to rapidly evolve. The recommendations is today are just a first step so as more people get vaccinated the understanding will grow about what activities are safe to do and this guidance will be updated so today on the show we talk about the cdc's first set of public health recommendations for fully vaccinated people and why it's still important for all of us to remain vigilant. This shortwave the daily science podcast from npr ellison. I am very glad to have you here today. And we are going to go into the caveats and the guidance and we're going the sectors you know. I have to say this does feel like kind of a moment to celebrate that we are getting you know a little bit of freedom back The cdc guidance is relaxing about what vaccinated people can do So i just wanna start off being like this is pretty awesome You know what i mean. Yeah i agree. There's a sense of optimism. we all feel it. We look at these vaccination numbers taking up and thank you know. The new normal is right around the corner. But i just have to say hang on folks like there are still sixty thousand cases. The date musto dolts haven't been vaccinated yet. So there's a lot of vulnerable people out there and the pandemic is not yet in the rear view mirror. Absolutely absolutely so. Let's get into it. What does the new guidance say that fully vaccinated people can do the agency says that fully vaccinated people can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing masks and without social distancing they can also gather unmasked with people from another household who are not vaccinated if everybody. There is at low risk of serious illness. So it's really a green light for scenarios of like grandparents who want to gather with their children or their grandchildren right. I mean this guidance gives the example fully vaccinated grandparents can visit indoors with their unvaccinated healthy family members. And that's without wearing masks. Or physical distancing provided of course that none of the unvaccinated family members are at high risk of severe covid nineteen. So let's break that down for a second alison sure who is considered high risk for severe covid. And who's considered low risk people. At high risk include older adults remember the vast majority of data people seventy five and older another high risk group pregnant individuals and people certain medical conditions those at lower risk include kids and healthy adults people who've had minimal exposure to other people bottomline risk goes up with age and the guidance from this week also says that the should be confined to one household. Right yeah right. They're very specific about this. And they give some scenarios The dividing line in your mind sort of be private spaces where you control. Who's around your home and public spaces. So at home if you are fully vaccinated and your friend or member fully vaccinated green light here to gather do at unmasked with knows distancing required alleluia. another scenario. my parents are vaccinated. Now they can come to my house even though we are not fully vaccinated and my ten year. Old daughter is too young to be vaccinated. We are considered low so vaccinated people can go visit unvaccinated people as long as everyone. There is considered low risk. Okay so that's all the good stuff. Let's talk about areas to be kind of cautious around sure. This is where there are some caution flags vaccinated people visiting unvaccinated people from people households at the same time. This is where the risks starts to sort of add up or accumulate so in this kind of situation. Everyone should wear a mask and visit outdoors of possible. Or if you are indoors make sure it's a well ventilated space and maintain physical distance when it comes to medium or large gatherings say baseball game a wedding. It's recommended that everyone including fully vaccinated people continue to avoid them. Yeah i mean. Let's talk about why we still need some of these precautions. Sure i mean officials say there's a growing body of evidence to show that people who are fully vaccinated are less likely to become infected and also potentially less likely to spread the virus to others. They use that word potential because the risk appears to be quite low but this is not completely nailed down yet. So as science evolves there will likely be more updated guidance and the guidance even talked about how in rare cases vaccinated people could get sick could have symptoms. Yeah i mean the risk is low but it's not zero mean the clinical trial showed. The vaccines are very very effective. They're not a hundred percent effective. And so the cdc says if fully vaccinated person has symptoms they should isolate and talk to a doctor and possibly get a test but they also say if fully vaccinated person has a known exposure. Say go to work and they later find out that a close contact was infected. They do not need to quarantine or get tested because they're infection risk is low though they should sort of monitor themselves for symptoms right so if a person who's vaccinated feeling sick they should isolate and talk to a doctor but if they get exposed to somebody who said that doesn't necessarily mean they need to you know go into quarantine. They just need to kind of monitor themselves. That's right

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge

"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to

Why Tech Companies Are Limiting Police Use of Facial Recognition

"All right emily kwong so. We're talking about this announcement from a string of tech companies that they are going gonna put limits on their facial recognition technology especially when it comes to law enforcement amazon microsoft and ibm yes on june eighth. Ibm said it would discontinue general purpose facial recognition or analysis software altogether. Get out of the business completely and it made an impression after. Ibm's big letter. Amazon announced a one year moratorium on sales of they're very popular software recognition spelled with a k. To law enforcement to give congress time to implement appropriate rules so a one year ban. Yes microsoft took it a step further saying it wouldn't sell products to law enforcement at all until a federal law is in place. Here's microsoft president. Brad smith speaking to the washington post we need to use this moment to pursue a strong national law to govern facial recognition that is grounded in the protection of human rights and for matali in conde who has been pushing for regulation changes in tech for years. This was a big deal when these words were coming out of silicon valley. She felt all of the feelings. My initial was thank god. Thank god i was. I was happy. I was pleased. I was optimistic. I was short of breath. I was exhausted. Tally is the ceo of ai. For the people a fellow at both harvard and stanford universities for her. These announcements shifted the conversation. But that's about it. So i'm pleased. It's got us incredibly far but we're by no means the woods not out of the woods because for all of the advancement and facial recognition systems. Still get it wrong. They'll incorrectly match folks what's called a false positive or fail to associate the same person to two different images of false negative. Yeah and what's vaccine. Is these errors are happening. More often. when the machines are analyzing dark-skinned faces and that can disproportionally affect already marginalized communities prone to unconscious bias at the hands of law enforcement leading to false accusations arrests and much worse so until there's action on this metallic said words just aren't enough gotcha. So let's unpack this a little bit. Let's talk about how biased gets into facial recognition systems in the first place. I'd love that okay. So it starts right with how the systems learn to do their jobs. A process known as machine learning so to make facial recognition systems engineers feed algorithms large amounts of what's called training data in this case. That would be pictures of human faces. Yes the way machines learn is that they repeat task again and again and again and again and again developing a statistical model for what a face is supposed to look like so if you wanted to teach the algorithm to recognize a man you'd put in like millions of pictures of men you got it. The machine will then measure the distance between the eyes on each picture the circumference of the nose for example the ear to measurement and over time the machine starts to be able to predict whether the next image it seeing is quote a man which sounds okay right here comes the but but the machine is only a smart as its training data so remember joy ghulam weenie who i mentioned at the top of the episode. Yeah the the mit yes. So she and her colleague timid gabe developed a way to skin color in these training sets and the two they looked at were overwhelmingly composed of lighter skinned subjects. Seventy nine percent for ibi dash a and eighty six percent. For etienne's these are two common data sets that were largely as joy. Put it pale and male. So basically the training data used to create these algorithms is not diverse. And that's how that bias gets in The diversity of human beings is not always being represented in these training sets and so faces outside the systems norm. sometimes don't get recognized. Here's matala explaining what the research meant to her. That goes back to this other issue of not just hiring but a bigger issue of those no one in the team to say that you haven't put all the faces you haven't put all the digital images of all human beings could look like in the way that they sharpen society in order to recognize these faces. And it's so. After realizing how unbalanced these training sets were joy intimidate decided to create their own with equality in race and gender to get a general idea of how facial ai systems performed with a more diverse population so basically they fed it more diverse pictures to to look at. Yeah it was kind of interesting. They used images from the top ten national parliaments in the world with women in power specific yes specifically picking african and european nations and they tested this new data against three different commercially available systems for classifying gender one made by ibm the second microsoft and the third by face plus plus an running these tests joint him knit found clear discrepancies gender and racial lines with darker skinned faces getting mis classified the most. Here's mut-ali again. So one of the things that joy blue armies amazing work looks. That is the coloration between short hair and gender so many many many black women with afros where mislabeled as men mis gendered because the system had trained itself to recognize short hair as a male trait and this research project mattie produced a massive ripple effect further studies legislation in december the national institute of standards and technology or nist published a big paper of its own testing one hundred eighty nine facial recognition algorithms from around the world and they found biases to looking at one global data set some algorithms in their study produced one hundred times more false positives with african and asian faces compared to eastern european ones and when tested using another data set of mug shots from the us. The highest false positives were found among american indians with higher rates in african american and asian populations again depending on the algorithm. Wow yeah that is not what you want from your data. And i'm guessing white. Men benefited from the highest accuracy rates. Yes they did now. The knicks study did conclude that the most accurate algorithms demonstrated far less demographic bias but for multi. This evidence of bias raises a bigger question about the ethics of relying on. Ai systems to classify and police at all the problem with ai. Systems machine learning is that they're really really really good at standard routine tasks and the issue with humans is that we are not standard. We're not routine. Were actually massively messy right. We're not the same but when a police officer searches face in the system. They're not making arrests based on just spat match alone are they. Oh absolutely not. Yeah it's a tool for identifying potential suspects but if you think about how there's already implicit bias in policing critics. A facial recognition are basically saying. It doesn't make sense to embrace technologies riddled with bias to right if all this research has shown. These tools are capable of misidentifying black people. We cannot use biometric tools that discriminate against a group of people who are ready discriminated against within the criminal justice system but policing most specifically mattie. When i first spoke to mut-ali in march she was open to moratoriums on facial. Recognition like amazon is doing buying time for these systems to improve regulations to be put in place but the protests have her views. Because why why am i being moderate with completely reimagined how we interact with technology so now she wants to see facial recognition banned from law enforcement use which some cities in the us have done. Moutallos has tried to push for legislation to outlaw discrimination in technology before but it seems like now people are paying attention and have a language for talking about structural racism that they just didn't have before whether why america listened to me or not. I was gonna continue with this work. I believe that technology should be an empowering force for all people and that's my work but now having old and new ala not just allies but co-conspirators bright. I'm so happy. Because i didn't think would happen in my lifetime and it's an it's

When Defending The Land Puts Your Own Life At Risk

"So emily why did you want to focus this story on. Columbia am the philippines. So remember that report i mentioned earlier. Yeah the one from global witness yes. So they're an ngo tracking threats against grassroots environmental actus subsistence farmers opposing mining tribal leaders condemning logging. Journalists lawyers organizers the un calls these folks environmental defenders and most of the murders that global witness documented took place in just two countries columbia and the philippines and in columbia indigenous communities are especially targeted. including the. Why you me known. His and nicole's piece this is on halacha or ortiz. A member of the y. You in northern colombia. In luck waheeda heater. We spoke over a secure video chat. She told me we raise our voice in defence of the territory and that the land is so much more than territories little walmart. It's wolman cup or mother. Earth where the why you pass on their culture to the next generation on halacha remembers being a little girl. When mining operations appeared dedicating the only stream the community had turning it into a better london. They have lan local on her community. Not only lost a source of water but a community meeting place where women would gather and do laundry and talk. Gauloise will come through and she became an activist because she doesn't want other communities to go through what she did. Okay so tell me a little bit about the activists work that unhealthy code does in columbia. So she is the secretary general of where side they mujeres y you mounting protests against mega mining projects in la guajira particularly. This project called l. said horn and what else to hone. That is the largest coal mine in latin america and it's right in her backyard. This is illegal operation owned by multinationals digging up coal that's exported to other countries but the practice of open pit mining. Mattie has proven really disruptive to the people who live there and harmful for the environment right. I know open pit. Mining can mess up local water resources absolutely and can create pollution that is physically harmful to communities that live nearby el cerro hone overall is really polarizing. Its construction has provided jobs and wealth to some in colombia for decades but it's also displaced indigenous and afro colombian communities forcing them from their lands without real resettlement consequently they are exposed to violence largely at the hands of paramilitary groups and criminal organizations groups that harass and target defenders like on helicopter who out against human rights abuses and environmental issues like those caused by the mine and this is on top of the violence. Colombians have already faced right. I mean. I know that colombia's kind of coming out of decades of conflict a conflict. Some say is an over because of armed groups still active in the region. And how does the government there respond to these attacks. Yeah that's a good question. I mean they often dismiss them as localized crimes and perpetrators are
