I guess maybe I'm breaking chair under me as I speak. Okay. Hopefully, you can get a new chair. Yeah Yeah I should do that on the less put on the list. Got What else is going on anything good. I. Don't know if you you've. been able to Get to deliver your ear yet. Now no joins delivering is not drawings, but you know beer delivery is really taken off in this these days. A lot of people have loosened the law. So you like normal, you can't deliver Beeri about states, but I've got a couple of deliveries, which is nice because a lot of times it's bruce that aren't necessarily right next to me and not easy to get to.

I don't know why they call it as it's called their new Cheetah, stance update. They think are funny like deeming these updates. Cheetahs stance Cheetah stands I. Guess they want. They want to make you. Think of their cars at Cheetah's is fast. Analyst about Cheetahs are actually that fast outside of Sim city, but like a again seen. I've seen pictures of the Tesla. It does not look anything like Ashida. No No. This more about their sports car. That might lessen their model X.. Yeah, I mean it's for all the cars in general, but this is just software.

"Welcome to you now. Podcast where we discussed stories in science and Tech. Make US ask exactly that everyone thinks for listening. I'm your host Stephanie Educator in Science Aficionado and I'm Michael Programmer Technology Good Afternoon Stephanie. What'S UP Well have you ever been stung by new murderer when it's yet have you now yet? I but Not going outside anymore. Never leave your home and you should be okay. Yeah no I know that a lot of people are still dealing with the coronavirus right now. I am just so grateful that there are smarter people than me out there looking for ways to help you know. Find new cures so just wanted to quickly mention I ran across one. That's in my on the Monitor. Ut Austin that's where. I graduated from Hook Them. Horns there are. There's a professor out there he's Actually GonNa Cure Krona virus with a Momma's Rama's yeah. Yeah Yeah you didn't know this but are actually on some pretty amazing creatures because over the past years to hold on the face masks. I don't understand. Yeah Their Superhero Llamas. So we can actually They found Antibody produced by these llamas and it basically binds tightly to the protein on on cove. It so that it it can attack you and so there is a potential treatment that they could Produce these antibodies mass quantity and distribute them to people who are at risk or who have already been diagnosed whereas you know obviously people are working on a vaccine which is good But not everybody might have access or want to get this vaccine so have a Lotta Shield Shield Allama Yeah we all need to get our own personal a basically no they are in the preclinical studies right. Now so they're testing it in hamsters and a non human primates which I thought was an interesting way to say you know monkeys there phrase before. Yeah so they're they're going to try it out and see if it could potentially be a treatment for us so yeah Llamas Obama's I have problems llamas or any other variant of whatever species a lobbyist so Stephanie Was Star Wars. Movie date here. Well we were watching star wars movie last week. Actually for a May the fourth be with you. Yes I mean. Everyone wants to start saying I just heard there. There really isn't a new one. I forget the forget. The woman's name is GonNa help write it but it seems promising either way it does break my heart a little bit. Though that when my kids think of Star Wars they think of the you know the. The newer movies is more than the ones that we are up with. I'm not sure I know if my kids know what star wars is it was. It was a happy meal toy for a little while when the movie was added December. Yeah they got. They got the toys. These little stupid star wars looks like a little longer thing but it's not really a Hologram is dumb. But they're still a bit young yeah. It was an awkward conversation. You know when Antigen kind of goes on his rage and kills like the whole village and everything he. He's the bad guy it's weird. Yeah it's definitely I mean. People talk about the right order to watch star wars and all that when you show it to your kids but I don't know you just never replicate how how we came just hours. Not even I mean even necessarily. It's it's so old. I watched all the star wars before I came out on ninety nine but I was seventeen when when episode one came out so like I knew. All the twists stopped but not it wasn't like ingrained the same way it was like you grew up. Watch if you're a teenager. We saw star Wars Serb return. Whatever yeah so for my parents they got to see it in the movie theater for the first time and I just kind of watched it on video. Yeah you Kinda delegates you. I don't know if I don't I don't remember. I was young. Probably younger than maybe. What the target you had you got and see the movie but like the elevators father. I don't know if that hits the same way. Twenty years later as does what did you know in the graphics of the silly laser. That's it to like. It was space fights and his lightsaber stuff. That was like ingrained culture by the time he saw it and now kids like the stuff is but what does that. Yeah like. My daughter was asking watching this movie and she was like wait. A minute is good or bad guy. And it's like well just star. Just keep watching and you'll see you know it's not going to have to have the same effect for her because she is starting out with a an thinking of him as a good guy you know whereas we came from the opposite and love okay. Darth vader was definitely the bad guy. And then okay. Let's watch the the PREQUELS and like oh. He used to be a good guy. It's a completely different experience. Yes we isn't it. I always like stuff like that when you come to. I mean I wish the movies were better than the first three really star wars. Isn't that great? A movie from a cinematic like sinophile. Kyp- story Oh critic is interesting. How the stories come out differently the way you watch them and it's always neat when you can watch something different watering a different experience and learn more I was so but specifically joints. You'll have joins now right. You have a little helper. Droid running around. I mean we do have like NBA's and this thing but rt to is going to be probably one of the most beloved star wars characters. Maybe the only put a number one. Yes I would agree with that Do you lake deviate will ever come close to rtd to it with the generation. Now well I guess I guess ask arcades kind of thing but like archie. Just been around forever. And he's like the he's the prototype of the first one that we were really introduced to and fall in love with his beeps and stuff and you know he. He's the U. N. title that. I'm not nerdy enough to know but like he gets in the back of the starship and he's helping guide and will connect to the computer. He's like he's a he's a helper droid and that's something that people are thinking about now is. Are we going to need help? A robots getting around

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"Big ten fingers ten toes. That's all that used to matter. Not Now now. Only seconds old exact time. 'cause of my debt is already known. Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories in science and tech that. Make us ask exactly that everyone. Thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator Aficionado and Michael Programmer took a good afternoon. Stephanie how are you? I'm fine and we are surviving? How about you the same happy Cinco de Mayo? Time are listening listening to this. It's probably probably already celebrity. Cinco de Mayo having a Margarita. Anyway he's actually what else you got today. How many people are making tacos tonight for dinner? We taco Tuesday in single tomorrow. This is the thing right. Everybody's Yeah I don't do. I've talked to us. I should make tacos anyway. So lots lots going on in the world. I guess I I saw this recent start like before we we hit record. I noticed the story of the tweeted through the Times which all the coronavirus stuff is supposedly ray me seventeen clicks to get logged in. And let's see a but the title is with Crisper a possible quick test for the virus it looks like they're using crisper to test for for carnivores for covert ninety. I noticed something about that. I was looking into that and Yeah I think there's a lot of different applications for using crisper. You can test for different. Antibodies are you. Can you can engineer a a a gene. That will basically glow under simplify. It'll basically glow if it recognizes the One of the antibodies from Corona virus. And so it could be a really simple way to get that test out there and have it be more accurate than maybe what they're dealing with. Now Sarel yes that's exciting. Everybody's YEAH SPURT UP CASPER AT RYAN. Exactly the kind of a bad rap for all of the different weird types of things that is trying to do but it could prove to be very useful in the coming months ahead. Yeah this was. His name was Zang. I guess he's He's at the broad institute in Cambridge Massachusetts. And he's apparently one of the pioneers of crisper technology or whatever he said it up with a pregnancy test and they got like a little violent stuff. You make something. Put The little drop in and reacts and then you dip the paper in two two lines means you you have in nineteen or or. Don't get the two tests confused. Rather what would you rather have at this moment? Which you find out that that your wife is pregnant or that. She has corona virus. Not Sure Enough I. Let's let her have. She's actually having grown admires test in like an hour. Oh okay well. I hope she doesn't have any sentence now. She just works. Used US going to the office in a lab. So they're just they've they've gotten some tests so they're just gonNA have everybody take a test every once in a while acting so. Yeah so what else are we talking about? No more carnivorous onboard board occurred something else out there in the world. There's a the world is fine. No you know as Americans. We always it. Seems like we always have to have something to panic about. If you you look back in the past year comes in a cycle of about every every couple of months. There's a new thing that we must immediately panic about and shut down everything and of course you know in Corona virus head and we really did have to everything and so now America's kind of getting tired of that so Let's move on. Let's introduce a new I something else about Introduce the murder Hornets from Asia. Great Murder Hormone that. Just this is what third play the fourth leg. I'm not up on my Bible. Yeah I know that's kind of what I was thinking. At what point do I need to let lambs above my above my doorway to prevent my starter? I got a robust Saturday. It will repel mortar murder Hornets. I'm sure yeah. So why is everybody concerned about the murder Hornets? Is it really a big deal? Is this just something else that you know. The media is pushing us to distract us from whatever else is really happening. Should we concerns? So what have you heard about murder Hornets? So far I honestly. I've tried not to read it up hundred Hornets. Because I wasn't really looking for more in my life I'm spending so much more time outside now from omb and like normally all you'll be going trip or visit grandparents or we you know indoor soccer whatever it is. We're doing now slow. Go play in the backyard so the kids get actually retired for bedtime. So you're telling me there's more murder Hornets there. Yeah I'm sorry to burst your bubble but now now we've gotta worry about the Asian Murder Hornets so don't get too Scared about it yet. As of right now they're reported sightings are all the way on the other side of year and We started in in Vancouver and now in Washington. There was a beef farmer. He had a nest and back in November. He went to check on his honeybees and discovered that his entire very healthy beehive with completely destroyed. They were healthy the day before then. He went to go check on the next day and basically he started looking at them and all of their little beheads were cut off his head on Teamer Hornets too. Yeah they are murder. Hornets necessarily because they murder humans. All this is this is violence. I don't need to worry about right. Yes well you know you definitely would not enjoy getting stung by a to inch long Hornets. That is not something that you want to have happen to you. Although scientists from the nineteen th century right. I'm not just out there leading. Bees and spiders stigma right. I guarantee you. Some people are out there trying to test it. I think there's a guy on on youtube somewhere. That has already films himself. Getting stung by a murder Hornet. Just see what would happen surprise. It hurts jackass movie this year. Isn't there Jack Ass movie coming out this year? This isn't this isn't related to that right now it might be. It could be a completely. You know publicity stunt for there are no hornets. That's just the jackass movie. Yeah they're murder. Hornets not necessarily because they murder humans but because they murder other bees and so they can take out an entire hive of bees. In just a few hours they They go in and they. Yeah they basically decapitate all of the bees and take over their nest as do they parade around them ca carrying their heads and spikes put them a little little Little twigs and stuff outside of the. Yeah Yeah so they're pretty. They're pretty deadly. Each Hornet can kill one. Be in every fourteen seconds using its powerful. Amanda Bowles to decapitate decapitated its prey. Oh and I guess so. Those beer are these are we. Arming these BS. How we find him back. How are we protecting the goodies for Hornets are pollinating? Hornets are not pollinating. So yeah this is. This could potentially be a really big problem. This is more more concerning than actually getting stung by the B. Is what effect will it have on the honeybees here in the United States who are already struggling to pollinate all of the things that we need? Pollinated your I already. We already had anxiety about the honeybees. We don't even more right. Yeah so yeah. So what are we gonNA do about these honeybees Years so you know there it. These these murder Hornets come from Japan. And so the problem is that whenever you have an invasive species come from one ecosystem into another ecosystem it's not bringing necessarily its natural predators with it right. What what are the natural predators of the murder Horner? Well there's a parasite that that we could try. That's one option is that we could introduce this parasite into the ness of established Murder Hornets although the problem with that is you know. If we'RE GONNA DO THAT. It takes time and not every hermit if we if we introduce the parasite into the Hornets Nest. It may be doesn't attached to every. Hornet in there and so you could potentially have some some escaping go establish other ness so basically if you see a Hornet's nest I think the protocol now is just a destroy it right so so yeah you need to call somebody that can take care of that for you if you cite it if you if you have a reported sighting And there's a website. You can go to to report if you happen to see when outside in your backpack backyard. You can report it to the Agriculture Department. And apparently someone will come out and take care of it for you. I'm thinking but I feel sorry for them because I feel like every time. Everyone sees a Hornet from now until the end of this year. We're going to be like making those calls. You know just in cages heard that I heard. That's the real reason they cancelled the NBA season because everybody worried about the Charlotte Hornets and like no no. I can't I can't I can't play them. They're murdering the B.'s Yeah yeah so I don't know yeah. I don't know what to be more afraid of now. The Hornets or current affairs Yes so no. It's it's yeah so the there's not it doesn't have any natural predators here in the United States. We don't have that parasites that's naturally here. That can that can Keep the population control and so this is similar to what happened with fire ants. You have fire ants in New York. Think so but I'm not sure if I've seen them you. Yeah you would know they they. They're they're an invasive species to Texas and the southeast United States they came from I think Brazil and they hopped to ride over on some on some cargo ships and so they established here in the problem with fire. Ants is that they're very aggressive to the other ants that route native here and so once they yeah once they start started population here. They exploded very quickly in population. Just because they take over other other end you know and beds and kill all the answer and they live there and you know it would be all finding Dandy for their vicious when you are standing in a fire ant nest. They all So they swarm you basically so if you're standing you know in the grass grassy you don't realize it You look down and you're covered. I experienced this is child. You look down in your covered with aunts. They they coordinate their attack. And so there's a fair Ramon or something that they release once they have Covered you when there's enough number of them and they all attack at the same time so yeah so by the time you get hit by one. You're getting bit by hundreds of ants. And so yeah they're terrible. They're very very painful and can be very itchy for a long time so That's the same problem here is there is no natural parasite for finance right right and you can't just like destroy. The entire habitat of everything else. Scorched earth policies is not a usually a healthy one. Yeah Yeah you can't..

WLGM 101.7 The Spiralnauts

"To you. Did what now a podcast? We're discuss stories and science and tech. Where we that makes ask exactly that. Everyone thinks listening. I'm your host Stephanie. Educator and science afficionado Michael Programmer Tech Guy. You're you're not an algorithm. How're you doing Michael? Good busy busy. How are you doing? Say That Corona Vars. Now I've you know. Can I make the joke? Coronas still bad even put a lime in it for what it's healthier you. Yeah no but I am going to San Antonio this week Apparently there's some some refugees from China coming to San Antonio Refugee. It's but you know. People escaping mature American citizens and their supposedly going to be kept in quarantine there now and I'm going this week so Good luck to me. I guess rotavirus onto my very best. If I see someone with a mask I'll be like away so no I think we'll be fine anyway so no. I wanted to talk about something with you today. Do you know that we made contact with aliens? Oh Yeah isn't that now? I actually have a joke here. Who's Alien Will Smith Right? He's is him all the time. Yes absolutely no. Scientists have been monitoring this for a while. It's a mysterious signal from deep. Space is repeating itself in Sixteen Day Cycles Sixty Day cycle so the Mayans had their long year. They broke things up into weird like sixteen over sixteen days. So it's six sixteen. What's relevant vest? Sixteen is there some like mythical? Can we get some national treasure seeking here and break the code? What sixteen days? What's what's that me. We don't know we don't have. We have no idea why it's repeating itself every sixteen days but it's called an effort be a fast radio burst and it's a pulse that it ranges from a fraction of a millisecond to a few milliseconds And it's caused by some high energy astrophysical process. We don't completely understand it. And we've monitored some of these things before but the current one they're looking at just. It seems to be repeating itself every sixteen days since October. The okay that's weird that certainly we do stuff like that right. In the in the opposite direction are we blasting signals out all in all directions of space. Probably that every sixteen days but every whatever we decided to. Yeah well that's one of the things. So where is this coming from? What is this and so this the signal that's coming? It's called fast radio bursts but it's actually takes a lot of Technology to to monitor it to even see it. It's not something that you could go outside and see the. Cto radio burst happening in the sky. Radio you'll see your radio waves anyway. I like you you can see the FM radio waves beaming into your radio. No no no specific frequency like where what wearing the spectrum does this fall while it says that it is described as a thousand times less than a mobile phone from the moon would be. That's the equivalent of the pulse that we're picking up So we're picking up. Does that mean that we can make also the moon? Is that what you're telling me I'll have also have received Syr. Somebody can monitor radio waves from the mirror. Not I should have reception on the moon. I'M GONNA call variety and make sure. Can you hear me now? No no but Yeah so that's the question is what is this coming from? Is this coming from a natural phenomenon. There are proposed. People are proposing. It could be coming from a neutron star or a black hole of some sort but the fact that it is being repeated every sixteen days. Usually these things are pretty random if they happen the fact that it's repeating is a bunch of people are asking. Could this be some sort of sign of extra terrestrial intelligence? Sure maybe what would be the sixteen day cycle is what we I guess. We're GONNA fix it on what we rotate I mean. Earth rotates every day so our booby through sixteen days. It's not like there's no path of sixteen days like through the cycle around the sun and like okay every sixteen days. We happen to be pointed in the right direction to pick this up. So it's gotta be and it's it's probably not due to something that based on how a reading it at it's something that's coming like it or is the single exist every eight days and we just don't say it we know it's not nothing on our end that's preventing were that's causing us to receive the signal every sixteen days so it would whatever is causing it to repeat in that way is happening on its and five hundred million light years away from Earth in some spiral galaxy is what they're theorizing. Sure we've columnist or not. No I mean so. Yeah so the fact that it's every sixteen days is maybe some evidence that it is not any sort of intelligent life. Because why would they send a signal? Only every sixteen days like you said we are sending signals into space continually. So yeah. That's that's what people are questioning is. What is the sixteen day significance without? So you're saying that that that is if it's intentional doesn't necessarily have to be intentional. Could it be New Year celebration? Is maybe they're they're years only sixteen days or whatever the equivalent is and they just happened to be launched this crazy festival at spews noise out into the atmosphere into the space and we just happened to be picking it up and we're just picking up every year celebrations. They have a festival every sixteen days. Maybe they're maybe they're year cycle is only sixteen days. Yeah they have to do fireworks every sixteen days. That sounds exciting Or yet we're we're putting our human earth terms on whatever galaxy the this signal would be coming from you know we rotate around the earth. In two hundred sixty five days we spin around our access in twenty four ish hours of but their whole system of time make be completely different than ours they may experience it in assuming it is some sort of artificial life not sorry assuming it is Sort of extraterrestrial life artificial natural. I guess Oh could be either or Yeah but no they could be experiencing time in a completely different way And if they you know what if what if going around like sixteen hours sixteen hours could be the equivalent of one of our days even so maybe it takes them sixteen hours to rotate around their access. And so the signal is your sorry sixteen days just to go around their their access. And so yeah. So that's what you know. I I personally am not an expert in astronomy. I don't have You know a lot of education in it but what does interest me is the astrology aspects of it so Assuming that if this to come from some extraterrestrial life what would they be like you know living on some sort of planet five hundred million light years away? And what is that significance of the sixteen days? What we'll do if that was. If sixteen days was equal to one of our days one trip around day or night or one trip around the sun. What would that do to the physio to their how they have evolved into a being? What would that look like is interesting to me?

"Ten fingers ten toes. That's all that used to matter. Not now now. Only seconds old. The exact time cause of my death was already known their fourteen varieties of tomato soup available from this replicator with Rice with vegetables bowling style with Pasta with gwen specify. Hot or chilled. Hot Hot playing tomato soup. A welcome to you did what now. A podcast where we discuss stories and science and tech the because ask exactly that everyone. Thanks for listening. I'm your host Stephanie. Educator and science aficionado Michael Programmer took A. How's your week Michael of the week? I'm having trouble this week. I need a drink is what I need to. Whiskey POD whiskey pod. I need a world coldest Martini rounds. Call this where do you get? The world's coldest Martini is a couple of his bar. Brooklyn a couple places. Is this a product called to this converge? I GUESS? From Jab from Japan as Super Cooling Magic it basically keeps water at like negative five degree Celsius water a negative five hundred Celsius so free is zero and this is negative five not frozen just has to do with the way the. I don't know I don't really understand. Visit science science soup. They add something to it or maybe alcohol has maybe aware freezing rate. I'm not sure no it's not The the the so this is just water. It's not actually the alcohols not actually yet cocktail with it. So the part of it. I don't have to dive into the crazy physics of it Look it up if you want. I'm sure it's out there. So it's a it's a frigid holds eighty like little vials of liquid. Which you're they're they're basically naked degree so they're already. They should be frozen but they're not for whatever reason the technology and the whatever they do so but when you pour it over your Martini or like on your drink or whatever you want to drink it basically instantly freezes so you get this little like stalactites owning my thing grow as of his little like crystal pile out of the water as it pours is like a little. It's obviously just water. But then you mix it with a Martini. And it's just like a cool little like instagram. -Able showmanship type stuff of point during our fancy over their new Yankees. Yeah I'm sure it's expensive too so but Everything Interesting Job. Yeah. Let's talk about. Do you know found this. I found a fact that I found very surprising to me. that over supposedly according to this one source over eighty percent of people will contract. Hp At some point in their life you heard of this vaguely. I people throw numbers around and help. And whatever the we've vaccine for that now though right. We do have a vaccine. Are you vaccinated? No okay well I mean vaccinated not for that and are you under forty five so far so far. I'm working on it then. You're still at risk of of being one of the eighty percent of people that apparently has Hp in the nation and so on then so in addition to that you know all these people are developing these STD's apparently but you know it doesn't doesn't always lead to that's the big thing with HIV is that it could cause some sort of some sort of cancer related disease in the body But it doesn't always lead to cancer growth by its of these eighty percent of the people that are contracting HIV. How what percentage of those people do you think are smoking pot? I probably the same percentage of the people that are smoking pot seventy-nine nine percent of the people. Hpv are also smoking marijuana. That's that's yeah no but This is this may be a problem because they've just found a study that does it. Cannabis accelerates growth of common tumor such as those caused by HP seller. It's the rural town. Okay I that's interesting for the most part people have said that there's really no side effects to pod and no danger so this is maybe that maybe it's not as natural inorganic as as people might otherwise suggest what can be organic. But that doesn't Sharia the growth of the ground and it's an opium can be organic natural. But that doesn't mean that it doesn't have any doesn't have any drawbacks to it. But it can affect affect your body negative ways so yeah you know and. I think it's interesting. There's a there's a big push right now at least here in Austin Texas to maybe not decriminalize but definitely lesser. The effects of people that are caught with small amounts of marijuana drug either on their body or in their car. And I don't know if at some point it will become legal here in Texas and other states. I don't know what's the status in New York is it is illegal in New York. Don't say legalize it just legalize I. I can't keep track. I don't know pot or not yet anyway. New Jersey. It's it's still medically legal in New York and New Jersey and supposedly and this is it's them for two or three years now. I remember when the last when we ousted Christie but everybody was saying that once we once Chris Christie and the next governor would pretty much Make legal like all around but so far that hasn't been the case. They haven't expanded that the legalization New Jersey for whatever for mostly. I'm sure political and economical reasons. They're just waiting to find me. The people that are GONNA MAKE. The money are waiting to find the right way to make money. Yeah well that's stuff. Well I I would predict that within the next five to ten years. It's just going to be nationally legal because it's you know it's already becoming legal and all these different states and I feel like one states. Make a certain legal. It doesn't take very long for it to become legal everywhere in the United States for the most bird. Yeah Yeah but you know. A lot of people argue that it's you know it has maybe health benefits to it. I know One person a friend of a friend who claims that it. It cured her cancer. She's decided not to do Chemo For whatever cancer she had and instead just you know. Smoke her whatever. Yeah I know it can in certain cancer patients it can. It can definitely help. Treat the nausea and other side effects saying they might have from but yes no. She actually claims it. It cured her cancer But that is unfounded unfounded unproven claim. Yes this there's some of those out there for sure but Nobody thought this article is interesting because it was it was. They found a direct link between the between the cell lines in they. Will they tested both both? The actual cancer cells the human cancer cells that that had a this cancer cancerous growth and then they tested the mice that they that they gave an HP virus to and then they monitored the growth of the cancer cells in those mice that were injected with THC. Those another question I had is like how do you? How do you have my smoke pot all day birthday? Give him little tiny tiny cigarettes to smoke gas. Just throw some teams like going to a party in the village yeah. That's an interesting job if your job is to get mys- holiday but no they they just They do the scientific way and inject them straight with teach C- So yeah so. They found that it actually interferes with cellular pathway. That stops the growth of the cancer Okay that's interesting. I guess it's still. There's a it's basically blocking your immune system from fighting the cancer. Yeah I mean it's it's not your immune system necessarily yourself have systems that will will shut down cell growth and that's how it should happen in cells the at some point the cells need to stop dividing right. So if you're if you have a cut on your arm and the cells around the cut need to need to grow go. They need to divine so that it can steal the wound. Right will wendo cells touch each other when a cell is surrounded by cells on every side of it there are certain triggers in their certain pathways. That will turn off the dividing mechanisms. So and what they found was that the thc in these cancer cells actually disrupts those mechanisms at turn off the cell growth and so yeah the mice that were The mice that were delivered. Thc had faster cellular growth of the cancer but this is the HP specific prompted. A prompt is not the right word. But the cancers caused by HP v S early all cancer not necessarily all cancer yet. They I don't know that they have studied other types of cancer. I think they were sitting specifically. Hpv related head and neck cancer. Because it is one of the fastest growing cancers So this is one. They were looking at the. Yeah that definitely. It would be interesting to see. How does this apply to other types of cancer and is it going to be You know there's a lot of cancer patients who are using marijuana medicinally to help with a side effects but are they but is it going to be counter effective to them I would. Well guess depends what they're doing. I feel like especially if the The side effects nausea. And all that are are chemo related. I think it's trying to mitigate. The the chemo was doing enough damage to the cancer. Or at least that's the idea that I can't imagine that this even this is shutting down certain pathways that it's detrimental to say the chemo. That's doing basically the the actual treatment of your actual treatment is so I can't imagine this is going to disrupt that in any way or get you know get an away of what the treatments are actually are but some of these but again. I'm not an expert on that necessarily but uh so that's interesting. I would feel like this is interesting from a learning what cancer is and how comes from. I mean that's the goal right is is trying to understand walk really does cause cancer more just like Beezer side of the Beezer signs that maybe could cause cancer but we're talking about HP maybe raising your risks and now maybe this THC is also going to help the cancer spread or preventive from you. Know whatever whatever's happening these are sort of like pre-cancerous stuff that is interesting may help us learn more about how we actually developed cancer initially. Yeah I mean the THC they're not saying THC causes cancer right. Yeah that's what I mean. It's not they're not saying it causes cancer is we. Don't really necessarily know exactly what the of it is. So if the is one of these is having an effect on the pathway between being totally healthy and having cancer. That's that that's the pathway that we're really trying to understand. Like how do we get from a healthy person to against them person? And how can we shut? That down of this is.

"Wheel it it was one of those pictures which are so contrived the is full you about when you move. Big Brother is watching you. Is there any reason why shouldn't have a green salad. I know many vegetables that are very clear on that point Sur which was decided to cut through the whole tangled problem by reading an animal actually wanted to be all shading so clearly on distinctly. I'm here I welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discuss stories in science intact. Make US ask exactly that. Hey everyone thanks for listening on your host Stephanie Educator and Science Aficionado and Michael Programmer in Tech Guy. Hello Stephanie the week. What's up and other day? Another dollar how are you Michael. Not Making enough dollars unless the burning the dollars. Yeah so I got so you can't see me but that's not because I'm invisible what I told you that I could be miserable. You can't be invisible Michael really well. No not really but now this. This company called Quantum Stealth has developed for actually. The product is called quantum stuff. Companies called hyper stealth. It's a camel Canadian. Camouflage Design Company. And they've got a basically a little thing that can make you invisible. How does it make you invisible like? Are we talking about something you you wear. It's you no. It's kind of like a shield like you stand behind it and you'd be invisible. Could you turn it into a cloak. Guess You'd absolutely no maybe not but by that that's definitely what this article reading our article in. Afl Science. For whatever reason. But I the I mentioned is from Athena's cap of visibility to each dwells Dell's and Harry Potter the notion of making visible. So yeah. Harry Potter is always prevalent on People's minds. Yeah so you've I'm sure you're familiar with. You've seen Over the years they have like these Hologram if like papers like the little bit like rubbery feel to them they make that sound you rub them up legumes thing so it's basically evatt technology. It's they're called. Lynn titular lenses basically. So it's like a Benz Lights Bins light so it's a sheet of those sort of two sheets of those put together and the way that the lenses bend curve it a little bit in the way. All the lenses band they reflect the light of what's behind them but if you've been them the right way to put it together the right way there's a dead spot and everything in that dead spot will just not be you is not reflecting the light of the stuff stuff that's in that little one spot so therefore is invisible on the other side. I see so you could stand behind the shield of some sort and as long as you were in the dead spy. Then the person on the other side wouldn't be able to see you is that you there's a couple of videos of it. It's pretty convincing. I mean it's not You know it's they're they're like you know the the visibility things there so it's not like I don't see anything here you don't know that there's something there behind the flashy it reminds me of The Hunger Games every once in a while. There's a shot at hunger games where they're talking about how they can sort of see. It becomes a plot point in the second movie where you can sort of seeing a little bit. Where like the edge of the world is and it becomes a plot point she actually shoots at one of those two like blow up the whole like bang? It's kind of like that where it is like a blur like you see. This is clearly something here. This is clearly like a piece of plastic. But you see what's behind you see the wall behind. It asked him all okay. So who's GonNa use this invisibility cloak. Harry Potter's point. Obviously given what I this sky I guess it was originally pitched just like military thing you like. Hey this is causing military could do. But they don't really. I guess they weren't into it that much. The the developer clipper owner of hyper stealth is named Guy Kramer and he was working with military organizations. You file patterns Blah Blah. It's fairly simple because it has to do with. Breath smells law in every material has this reflected refracted index speed allied and all sorts of physics. And all that sort of thing But I guess yes he just didn't pitch it to the military or they didn't wanted us us a really. He's just developing it as a product you can buy for the most part. He's got a couple of versions of it that has to do ooh specifically with like you take two sheets of like three D holographic paper. Whatever you WANNA call that we were talking about it? You sort of put them together with SA- water in between it or like wail or Gel or like something away because that's what helps the refraction all like sort of work together. I don't I can't describe the tire science dance too. But it's it works on all sorts of things if Iran ultraviolet thermal. So it's not just blocking your site but it's also sort of. Maybe this is a solution to like everybody's spying on us. And we'll put bigger houses out of this. This crazy hyper stealth stuff. Well it makes the person behind behind it distorts the image. I guess that they're semi invisible them at all. I mean there's a couple of I'm looking at the one Iowa science right now it's Looping Jeff of like two trucks in front of it and you'll see like the grass behind it and hands up and you say truck sitting there on there but you said you can instill see that there is some sort of in visibility screen really see the screen but like I feel like this wouldn't necessarily be useful to the military until it becomes bulletproof. Sure I guess. But that's I mean car. Wars really fought in that manner. You're suggesting Blake. This will protect protect them from radar detection. You put that stuff. This is one of the things they're talking about. I read one article on. I've been I read a bunch of articles of clothes a lot of pages Over the last week or so as I've been reading this but you can do that like you could if you build the bunker basically out of the stuff the radar coming over you or like the infrared detectors or any people over there. They're not going to see you. The detection systems won't see you. Yeah Person Walking out and I see there's a big screen here this clearly something going over here because there's there's been if I walked right I could see you but actually devices I'm saying like if you can see that there is you know the enemy on the other side of this and visibility sheets or just see that there's an invisibility sheet of some sort. Then I'm pretty sure they were just shoot at the invisibility she. It seemed like a hard battle. The pitch back. I don't know how many battles are fought like that anymore. What with drones like buying over the got got infrared buying a flyover bolt Michael? He's on drones. Now I mean everything's I'm I'm just saying now. The drones are going to be invisible. Yeah I don't know if you'd be able to build because the drugs are always moving so you got the wrong angle. You hit the light the right way. You probably just see the drone but I guess as aren't enough so that you wouldn't necessarily notice it as much if you're looking up in very closely eh. You might be able to see it but if yeah I could see how it could maybe help with the visit in visibility of the drone. A lot of. It's all trying to trick. I guess the computers I mean I've got. I just fired up one of these videos on on their website on hyper self dot com. And it's like he's got a split screen where it showing you. He's lifting thing like the thermal spectrum. He's one of those thermal guns at pointed at the guy so you'll see the thermal image. He lifts up the Little Shield that he's got and you just don't see him anymore like it doesn't pick up. That is behind. It doesn't the ultra violet. The infrared like it's not detecting them at all so you can quickly algorithms like this. Yeah but drones check. The Predator. Drones are everywhere. I want to join for Christmas. I'm pushing for this. I would like to have a jerome. I'm surprised you don't have a drone. I'm surprised they don't have a Toronto. But my birthday's coming up in March so I pitched until the kids that they wanna buy me a drone. That's the track. This'll be really great toy for the kids. Exactly which is my daughter. She's got a book. We read it last night. It's called Leonardo in the drone. And it's about this little girl that wants to win a photography conscious of the library. And so she has the drone she gets a drone and she named Leonardo. 'cause why wouldn't you name it Leonardo and was gonNA cameras all about how she's learning how to fly the drone he touches the camera towed and she's flying over and taking pictures of turtles over the ocean and in the end she wins. So you've read that book every night this week so get an experiment planting the C. Planting The seas. That's that's just to get what you want right exactly How can I get vantage of this So yeah so I could see I could definitely see the value in a product like this for the military I'm also wondering if you said we can buy this. It's product from their website. Yeah sure they're selling the web directly but there are definitely patient from from a corporate standpoint verses it is strictly just working with the military I mean they got into sunglasses you turn it into. I don't look good. It would do is sunglasses. Because you can't we've we've talked a little bit on our podcast here about facial recognition and You know in airports and in public sites and and you know be for the government being able to know exactly where you are when you're there based on your face you know the information they have in their face but you you know what if they made some sort of it would probably be very odd looking but some sort of glasses you could put on your face that would distort you know basically make your face invisible visible to any facial recognition systems out. There do you think that would work. Maybe I mean I guess it depends. Are you still better off. One of those tattoos. I I don't think I WANNA permanently to my face. You can get like these pilon stickers screwed for the most part I. I don't know if you've seen the article going going around. I don't know if I want if we want to do a whole segment on facial recognition again but like that. They're basically building a database company. That's basically facially recognizing you based on images mind from all the public sites facebook and screw facial images to apple and so I'm sure you know whoever they want to sell it to they have that ability so I'm yeah I'm done for but if I could put on some special glasses if I wanted to be anonymous for some reason I mean I'm not doing anything interesting enough to warrant being anonymous but if I was then That would I could definitely see a use in a product like that. Sure I guess this would be war. I think he'd be more apt to put. Maybe like your phone in it. You're being tracked so many different ways and I'm not even sure this facial recognitions. I think a lot of them are smart enough to go around your less as like if you put. We're GONNA put on sunglasses and took a picture. My phone would knows may in some. I mean this false positives and we can talk about all that well. How about hunters aren't is GONNA WANNA buy this like? Oh Yeah I mean absolutely this you make you make the whole thing out of that. Might be honest. That might be the other you talked about. How your console shoot through it but you might not want to use it for hunting? Well I think yeah no they would not shoot through the glass. Well no you're you you're set it up. One side of the year these the other hunters on the other side of the cross is between you and you both shoot at it like oh no no I just don't see you. Yeah I can see the problem there..

All the lenses band they reflect the light of what's behind them but if you've been them the right way to put it together the right way there's a dead spot and everything in that dead spot will just not be you is not reflecting the light of the stuff stuff that's in that little one spot so therefore is invisible on the other side. I see so you could stand behind the shield of some sort and as long as you were in the dead spy. Then the person on the other side wouldn't be able to see you is that you there's a couple of videos of it. It's pretty convincing. I mean it's not You know it's they're they're like you know the the visibility things there so it's not like I don't see anything here you don't know that there's something there behind the flashy it reminds me of The Hunger Games every once in a while. There's a shot at hunger games where they're talking about how they can sort of see. It becomes a plot point in the second movie where you can sort of seeing a little bit. Where like the edge of the world is and it becomes a plot point she actually shoots at one of those two like blow up the whole like bang? It's kind of like that where it is like a blur like you see. This is clearly something here. This is clearly like a piece of plastic. But you see what's behind you see the wall behind. It asked him all okay. So who's GonNa use this invisibility cloak. Harry Potter's point. Obviously given what I this sky I guess it was originally pitched just like military thing you like. Hey this is causing military could do. But they don't really. I guess they weren't into it that much. The the developer clipper owner of hyper stealth is named Guy Kramer and he was working with military organizations. You file patterns Blah Blah. It's fairly simple because it has to do with. Breath smells law in every material has this reflected refracted index speed allied and all sorts of physics. And all that sort of thing But I guess yes he just didn't pitch it to the military or they didn't wanted us us a really. He's just developing it as a product you can buy for the most part. He's got a couple of versions of it that has to do ooh specifically with like you take two sheets of like three D holographic paper. Whatever you WANNA call that we were talking about it? You sort of put them together with SA- water in between it or like wail or Gel or like something away because that's what helps the refraction all like sort of work together. I don't I can't describe the tire science dance too. But it's it works on all sorts of things if Iran ultraviolet thermal. So it's not just blocking your site but it's also sort of. Maybe this is a solution to like everybody's spying on us. And we'll put bigger houses out of this. This crazy hyper stealth stuff. Well it makes the person behind behind it distorts the image. I guess that they're semi invisible them at all. I mean there's a couple of I'm looking at the one Iowa science right now it's Looping Jeff of like two trucks in front of it and you'll see like the grass behind it and hands up and you say truck sitting there on there but you said you can instill see that there is some sort of in visibility screen really see the screen but like I feel like this wouldn't necessarily be useful to the military until it becomes bulletproof. Sure I guess. But that's I mean car. Wars really fought in that manner. You're suggesting Blake. This will protect protect them from radar detection. You put that stuff. This is one of the things they're talking about. I read one article on. I've been I read a bunch of articles of clothes a lot of pages Over the last week or so as I've been reading this but you can do that like you could if you build the bunker basically out of the stuff the radar coming over you or like the infrared detectors or any people over there. They're not going to see you. The detection systems won't see you. Yeah Person Walking out and I see there's a big screen here this clearly something going over here because there's there's been if I walked right I could see you but actually devices I'm saying like if you can see that there is you know the enemy on the other side of this and visibility sheets or just see that there's an invisibility sheet of some sort. Then I'm pretty sure they were just shoot at the invisibility she. It seemed like a hard battle. The pitch back. I don't know how many battles are fought like that anymore. What with drones like buying over the got got infrared buying a flyover bolt Michael? He's on drones. Now I mean everything's I'm I'm just saying now. The drones are going to be invisible. Yeah I don't know if you'd be able to build because the drugs are always moving so you got the wrong angle. You hit the light the right way. You probably just see the drone but I guess as aren't enough so that you wouldn't necessarily notice it as much if you're looking up in very closely eh. You might be able to see it but if yeah I could see how it could maybe help with the visit in visibility of the drone.

Our AI Isn't Weird Enough Yet

"Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories and science and Tech Tech. Make US ask exactly that Harry one. Thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator and science aficionado Michael Programmer Tech Guy. I've always talked about algorithms MM suffering and I. I just saw one yesterday though I saw one I gu photos law to they have an algorithm miseries. Stitching together photos. Is doing this doing that so so I don't know. Are you familiar with Google Photos Upload your photos there at all you all of my photos are there so I hope you're not going to tell me that my photos should not be there so I don't know about that voters in there so these things stitch together they'll see. This is the best shot. I'll try to smile. Goes where it puts the photos together and tries to you. Take seven of the same person and they'll try to give you that. Look the best shot of it or I'll make movies on the list of so one of the things that does is called Ben and now or like identify you from some years ago and stitch together with a with a pose that you just talk shows. I don't know how exactly how it works. I haven't dug into the but it like I find on the expressions are often similar. Like you're looking the same way to me. It's Kinda cool and it's something that's supposed to make you feel better or worse about yourself you eh. Just sort of like how things change a lot of the kids. The kids come locks take a billion pictures of the cancel. Show me one two years ago when they're doing something from the Christmas tree with. This is one of the Christmas drink but when I took recently they just sort of drives home. How stupid algorithms are and how easy and like how? We're not anywhere near you Larry. Learning how algorithms are stupid and that they don't really understand what you're doing. I took a picture. Just 'cause I wanted to Texas to somebody and it was easy to take a picture my screen than it was to find the photo on my phone own and text it so I took a photo of funny picture of my cousin or my two of my cousins sitting on the couch. And they're making the lyrics making kind of funny as one of them is about to take a bite so I took like a picture of that and I sent it to me sent to them just to get a laugh and whatever we laughed and Google photos auto uploaded it because my tax message APP with all this new photo which which is again. It didn't need to do that because they photo elsewhere but so today I got this little pop up saying then now. It's the same photos the photo I took a picture of with the picture sir. Hey these people remarkably similar right like it's it's funny because you think it's sort of it's weird. How sometimes aches and tell my kids are agent for the most part? I guess maybe just 'cause it's slow and it sees them step by step which you think he would identify these pictures even with the lighting slightly different that. Hey this is exactly the same. These these people are exactly the same age exactly the same pose that he went that it wouldn't be tripped up by it but it clearly was. I wonder if you could. Are you. Do Sir do those picture re-creations of when you you you're thirty years old and you try and recreate a picture of when you were you know three five and seven with your siblings. You're thirty thirty five and thirty seven and you're in the best of the big smile. Would it be able to recognize that as the same person I it should attack. Generally you haven't tags so yeah it should know that we'll say as things get better but it's still remarkably stupid and that's actually what I want to talk about today is how is weird. Dum Okay and you're and you're using those adjectives weird and dumb not just as like okay. You're judging it as like. Oh that's dumb. You're actually trying to say that it is stupid in nature. It's definitely stupid. We're nowhere near anywhere near real intelligence legance at So I was listening to Ted. Talk by Janelle Shane. WHO's a researcher? She didn't like a ten minute tech. Ted Talk About Ai. Just a bunch much different things and how it's quirky and how that basically is weirder than we think like we're not the future is going to be weirder than we think because all these things are not is not great and were teaching it poorly as well. Though the first thing she starts with he talks about ice cream flavor. She worked with a young program is I think she said but she basically she fed the algorithm with a bunch of ice cream flavors. And Yeah you know. Some of them have weird names. You've I'm sure you've been to an ice cream shop. They make up these crazy things. He doesn't know any better understood. So this album to try to generate new ice cream flavors so so here are some of the three that she suggested it's called Pumpkin Tash break Peanut butter slime and strawberry cream disease. give me a ball full of that right exactly because it doesn't no it doesn't what is cream is he doesn't know that it's trying to make appealing flavors. You're telling me give me things like this so basically what it's doing is just finding letter combinations or word combinations and just feeding them together until it gets on that and it gets gibberish peanut butter slime. Yeah Yeah I have a feeling that there would be definitely we some market for that in the for the six to nine year old boy range. They would definitely WANNA try peanut butter sly you know this is this is my next attack idea. Next tech building idea is going to create an ice cream shop just but everything's generated by the machine so it'll be peanut butter slime and strawberry abry cream disease and just just go at it. Make flavors the match the ridiculously generated. Things and funny thing is that then become they become real flavors and suddenly the he is in his stupid as it was the future. Would you call your company of of robot ice cream career game would have to be generated by the all. I would take all the ice cream shops that are out there so I get you know Maggie Moose who's stone or exactly okay. Well Good luck with this. Yeah so so she goes on. Oh she's talking about things that are happening she. She mentions movies like she thinks. The terminator should have been weirder like the term comes back like super robot with a walks. It's normally acts a little weird but not probably any weirder than order storks today acts anyway. Hey leave him alone can every every way right. But he's a very like this is a I super intelligent robot thing in the future but it he she says it probably should have been we iteration of probably been maybe not walking smoothly so one of the things she she distress she's talking about generating robots in robots to cross the dungeon or cross a world. Teach them how to walk. They step over cliffs over steps and all that sort of things and it turns out what happens is a lot of times robots will just sort of bill themselves up really tall and then just fall over to get to the debt to the destination rather than trying to walk. Because you you think oh we're going to get from A to B. Let's walk there. Let's a debate. But they're just literally. How do I move this object from A to B they just make a big tower and fall over and then then and then they're they're robot reaches the end of the world so it's it's crazy things like that that we're gonNA see in the future because this is what what robots are this is what algorithms are going going to learn from the data? We give it unless really really careful. So you're saying that we probably don't need to be worrying about robots and P. future coming back back to you murderous. Yeah I'm not too worried about it because all these robots just things like that I mean if you program is similar any computer or Computer Algorithm Arolla. It's it's all as good as the human that programmed at an oftentimes as a programmer. I can tell you that. Programmers are not particularly smart. Okay well that's I mean that's good news. I guess but I mean I mean how are they. I'm sure there's people that are going to try and an close this gap in AI knowledge knowledge by trying to fix that right. Yeah I mean a lot of it's just communication. You GotTa really understand what you're doing now and it's another example. She go and you see this. A lot is how like racist or misogynistic. algorithms could be when they're sorting people so many of our history so much of our history and our society eighty. Is that way so if you'll give society to train it is going to be like well. Okay you never hire anybody. That's there went to a college says women's College I'm I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA suggest resumes for anybody that went to a women's college all executives are named Bob. So if your name is Bob I'm GonNa hire you interesting so I mean it's hard to get around the stuff. Humans are infallible. I mean humans are sorry humans are definitely really we have flaws right just human nature And so I guess it makes sense that whatever we try to create will we'll also have the same flaws that we do in some representation right and maybe even worse because we don't even realize them until a computer kicking them apart or or. Let's say you do this all the time. So I'm going to do this all the time and like okay. So it's really so the none of the nothing. The bolts of it is like we're not going to build a super intelligent computer to fix all our problems until we understand what our problems are and how to fix them. It's a tool not not a cure all right and in a way that is not Human in nature they are not humans they are going to try to solve problems. Problems in extremely weird ways unless you are very specific in how you want that problem solved

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"All of mankind was united in celebration. We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to a look. Ah there's no unselfish good deed sorry yes there are totally good deeds. That are self less I asked for one example. Yeah it's yeah there's no you may not Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories in science and tech made us exactly that. Hey everyone thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator Signs aficionado Michael Programmer Intech Happy New Year's definitely what's up happy new year. We're back we're back. Did you have a good break. Break those fine. You didn't get you didn't get to rest and get lots of relaxation. Oh no kids were home. That doesn't happen. I know that's the thing when your parents is. You don't get a vacation because when you're on vacation you're working fulltime still cleaning cleaning was piles and piles of stuff that needs to be. Put away somewhere. That's okay but we love our kids right. We take care of them. We're happy to gift Dr Time In our efforts to our kids in hopes of one day being rewarded for it right or life essence essence. Yes one day. We'll be rewarded for sure right. Well that's kind of what by Story today I wanted to bring to you is when you talk to you a little about altruism sure yeah. So how'd you feel so when we're taking care of our kids you know we are. We are gifting our time or gifting our services and to the point point where sometimes you know the sleepless nights then and of course we're women we have to Give a lot of our bodies are I can't as well There's lots of different reasons for this But Altruism you know is that sort of the definition of altruistic behavior right. I think the official definition is any behavior that benefits another individual at a cost of oneself. So improbably you can probably think of different examples of we think of examples in in humans right. So maybe that's right in in here in some human. Some humans tend to be more altruistic than others. But what about in birds. Would you think of them as very altruistic I mean mother birds are out there getting worms for their kids and stuff to write than they regurgitate digest the food for their young south. Yeah there's some that yeah and I think you know when you think of altruism you you think of it as very natural to donate your time and energy to your to your offspring right but what about you from you know one human to another human or one bird to another birds going to help each heather out. What's your what's your general thoughts on birds? I know they can get some. You can get a bad rap. Sometimes general thoughts burs. Let's see are we talking about twitter. I'm I'm not. I'm not sure I'm in love with the twitter bird. Twenty Twenty Yucky tweets effort Birds I feel like they. I don't know there must be some mm-hmm altruistic some sort of band together migratory patterns. Hey Go this way. We're going to make a fly V for efficiency right all that all that sort of thing. Yeah no I would. I'm referring specifically as One Bird specifically helping out another bird not just in the whole you know. They're not in the whole flock of birds trying to you know survive as one bird calling up another like. Hey I gotta move gotTa move. Can you help me move my ipad jacket. You show up on Saturday. That's when you really find out how many friends you have is. Just try and move from one house to another and ask if anybody right he can help you out. I don't have to deal with the flight of stairs. That's true so yeah no. The scientists studying rain To See if they could find out any altruistic behavior in birds and They found one species of bird. That will help each other out. They're the African grey parrots African gray parrots. It sounds like one of the ones that are grey parrots an extinct endangered they are endangered. So be nice exactly well to be fair they were also studying Cox as well and The the blue headed Macaws were not it did not pass the test for altruism but the great the great parents stood and this is interesting for biologists because because it's an example of the first non Mammalian altruistic behavior that they can find the wild We'll now this is necessarily in the wild because it was in a laboratory Tori study a set up. But you're readily at could happen in the whilst. Okay so how did these birds. Which bird was moving? which bird was lifting heavy things? What were they doing? Yeah so So I this is this experiment kind of had to happen in two steps They I had to teach the birds about about money so they taunt these birds that they only get food when they exchange a token To get there to get their little reward. Okay okay this is a very this is already starting very human like okay. I listen money. It's all about money. Yeah so the birds don't get any food unless they get concert the token for the human to get them. There was any machine. Sure let's go out. And so so. They train the parrots that once they a would give their token than they would get a reward and then they put they would put two birds in a cage next to each other and they they would basically give one bird all the money. All the tokens and so that bird could exchange the tokens ticket. They're not reward There there buddy bird on the other side had no money and could not get any food and so and so then there was a they put a little hole in between in the two cages and in these African parrot gray parrots. They did fine examples where one parrot would give the token into bird and the other the other cage so that he could turn his token to get some food. Okay so share. Make sure your your buddy buddy isn't starving. I guess come you know having trouble I'll come over. I'll make you have hard times. I'll cook lasagna. Bring it over a little bit. Well how did it take. Do the bird has to be. Visually starving was his ROHR's like Oh look I have ten. I have ten tokens. None outcast here here. Have One while I'm eating or was it. Looks like it's going to die. No No. They didn't wait that long but I guess the bird. The bird was the the rich bird the bird with all the money Could realize that. Hey if you turn in one of these tokens you'll get some food. I have food so here. Try One of these Tokens Over on your side and so yeah. That was one question that I had actually as both of these birds were starving. And there's only one token would would would the bird with the bird shoes to help himself or choose to help the other bird. And how far could you stretch this altruistic behaviour right. Yeah let's see the follow up studies and maybe one of the bird has one token versus ten. I mean are you going to be. You'RE GONNA help out of. He's got nothing nothing he's still needs more clearly. It's only one reward. Maybe you need to three rewards. Why would you help out our? He's got a little bit he must be okay. I'm not gonNA worry about him. Yeah exactly and yeah. How far will then? I think that's fair to ask in humans to you. Know it's easy to give away our lunch when we know to a homeless person somewhere on the street when we know we can go home and we have a refrigerator full of food right. It's the same with humans the same concept concept you you find yourself willing to give something to somebody that has nothing but somebody has a little bit. You're like well you should just work a little harder baby Though that's not really the case. He's exactly yeah. Well I mean you know if you if you were starving yourself Are you gonNa give away your last bit of food. So I don't don't know that we could. I don't know that it's fair to test that in birds if we can't ask it in humans as well convinced I'm not convinced of birds study idea a a little more than that could just be a curiosity thing for I am convinced that it's altruism. Oh really what else can it be just curiosity like hey look at this cool thing. Cool fame I can do this coin in and makes food come out check it out like to make. It could make a rubber band come out and I feel like the bird it might still say. Hey take this coin. You can get a rubber band. It's fun okay so it's it's still altruism it's sort of like a shared experience cutting is it is that considered considered altruism or would that be considered showing off of like. Hey I know how to get this cool thing. Look what I can do liquid. I know how to do here lead. You're sharing it as a shared experience. It's teaching can I have is cool thing. They check out my to cool toy. You WanNA comply with Michael Toy that's that's of altruism is the right word but it's still on that scale. Oh yeah well I mean you know the Byrd. That's the rich bird is is doing it. Maybe in hopes hopes that one day the poor bird would help him out in return. I mean that's one of the reasons why animals in nature might be altruistic to each other is to first of all help out akin to help out your your child or your brother or your sister but You know other examples. Are you help out another member of your tribe or your pack now thinking they may be able to protect you later on right. Yeah I mean that's part of life Survival instincts right. Make the whole tribe Sur- survive. It's better for me. Yeah and I think. That's I think they've studied in in humans as well of why are some human humans more altruistic towards others and a lot of that has to do with our innate nature with being in a tribe in wanting not participate in that and and survival as well right there's so many different things for humans. So is there something they're trying to discover. What what what was the purpose of the study just to fool around with burs? They just wanted to tweet little. I mean isn't that the purpose of any study really just full around with whatever your scientists out there like what we do see this is. This is what I mean like the scientists out there. Hey look at this cool thing I can do with birds checking out and there's no real reason here we just WanNa know or any birds. They help each other out in a pinch Yeah I think that behavioral scientists just generally want to find examples goes in nature in order to study in order to understand you know altruistic behavior in humans. It helps us if we can understand how it happens. In Our the animal counterparts to see is that is is it only in humans as it in humans that live together in in in tribes or packs. Are you know Hugh Animals that live together and that was one of the actual hypotheses that the scientists came up with here is that these African parents are used to living living in in. What do you call A bunch of birds flock Flock Bird you know. They live together and so they understand a little bit more of their repressively of helping each other out. Then 'cause who live I think more alone lifestyles so just to understand it. Better I think is what their purpose is. We'll maybe I mean that's not even sure we're projecting altruism on these birds by these gray Parrots already sort of live in this communal thing where you share just ingrained aid. We share with the tribe. So I've got ten. I don't you know it's not necessarily my survival instinct to keep all ten so a looked as part of my tribe is something needs to do to just part of my day but whereas Macaws are like well listen. I don't know what you mean by this other person. This is just not a bird I. He's my friend I don't know him never met him in my life. Yeah when I think there's probably a little bit because these animals are endangered. Not quite sure how they obtained obtain these animals to use them but I think some of them. Some of the parents were related in some way. I don't know if they were brother birds or or do you think you think birds or animals. No they're endangered in some way. Or some you.

Yeah let's see the follow up studies and maybe one of the bird has one token versus ten. I mean are you going to be. You'RE GONNA help out of. He's got nothing nothing he's still needs more clearly. It's only one reward. Maybe you need to three rewards. Why would you help out our? He's got a little bit he must be okay. I'm not gonNA worry about him. Yeah exactly and yeah. How far will then? I think that's fair to ask in humans to you. Know it's easy to give away our lunch when we know to a homeless person somewhere on the street when we know we can go home and we have a refrigerator full of food right. It's the same with humans the same concept concept you you find yourself willing to give something to somebody that has nothing but somebody has a little bit. You're like well you should just work a little harder baby Though that's not really the case. He's exactly yeah. Well I mean you know if you if you were starving yourself Are you gonNa give away your last bit of food. So I don't don't know that we could. I don't know that it's fair to test that in birds if we can't ask it in humans as well convinced I'm not convinced of birds study idea a a little more than that could just be a curiosity thing for I am convinced that it's altruism. Oh really what else can it be just curiosity like hey look at this cool thing. Cool fame I can do this coin in and makes food come out check it out like to make. It could make a rubber band come out and I feel like the bird it might still say. Hey take this coin. You can get a rubber band. It's fun okay so it's it's still altruism it's sort of like a shared experience cutting is it is that considered considered altruism or would that be considered showing off of like. Hey I know how to get this cool thing. Look what I can do liquid. I know how to do here lead. You're sharing it as a shared experience. It's teaching can I have is cool thing. They check out my to cool toy. You WanNA comply with Michael Toy that's that's of altruism is the right word but it's still on that scale. Oh yeah well I mean you know the Byrd. That's the rich bird is is doing it. Maybe in hopes hopes that one day the poor bird would help him out in return. I mean that's one of the reasons why animals in nature might be altruistic to each other is to first of all help out akin to help out your your child or your brother or your sister but You know other examples. Are you help out another member of your tribe or your pack now thinking they may be able to protect you later on right. Yeah I mean that's part of life Survival instincts right. Make the whole tribe Sur- survive. It's better for me. Yeah and I think. That's I think they've studied in in humans as well of why are some human humans more altruistic towards others and a lot of that has to do with our innate nature with being in a tribe in wanting not participate in that and and survival as well right there's so many different things for humans. So is there something they're trying to discover. What what what was the purpose of the study just to fool around with burs? They just wanted to tweet little. I mean isn't that the purpose of any study really just full around with whatever your scientists out there like what we do see this is. This is what I mean like the scientists out there. Hey look at this cool thing I can do with birds checking out and there's no real reason here we just WanNa know or any birds. They help each other out in a pinch Yeah I think that behavioral scientists just generally want to find examples goes in nature in order to study in order to understand you know altruistic behavior in humans. It helps us if we can understand how it happens. In Our the animal counterparts to see is that is is it only in humans as it in humans that live together in in in tribes or packs. Are you know Hugh Animals that live together and that was one of the actual hypotheses that the scientists came up with here is that these African parents are used to living living in in. What do you call A bunch of birds flock Flock Bird you know. They live together and so they understand a little bit more of their repressively of helping each other out. Then 'cause who live I think more alone lifestyles so just to understand it. Better I think is what their purpose is. We'll maybe I mean that's not even sure we're projecting altruism on these birds by these gray Parrots already sort of live in this communal thing where you share just ingrained aid. We share with the tribe. So I've got ten. I don't you know it's not necessarily my survival instinct to keep all ten so a looked as part of my tribe is something needs to do to just part of my day but whereas Macaws are like well listen. I don't know what you mean by this other person. This is just not a bird I. He's my friend I don't know him never met him in my life. Yeah when I think there's probably a little bit because these animals are endangered. Not quite sure how they obtained obtain these animals to use them but I think some of them. Some of the parents were related in some way. I don't know if they were brother birds or or do you think you think birds or animals. No they're endangered in some way. Or some you.

"All of mankind was united in celebration. We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to a look. Ah there's no unselfish good deed sorry yes there are totally good deeds. That are self less I asked for one example. Yeah it's yeah there's no you may not Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories in science and tech made us exactly that. Hey everyone thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator Signs aficionado Michael Programmer Intech Happy New Year's definitely what's up happy new year. We're back we're back. Did you have a good break. Break those fine. You didn't get you didn't get to rest and get lots of relaxation. Oh no kids were home. That doesn't happen. I know that's the thing when your parents is. You don't get a vacation because when you're on vacation you're working fulltime still cleaning cleaning was piles and piles of stuff that needs to be. Put away somewhere. That's okay but we love our kids right. We take care of them. We're happy to gift Dr Time In our efforts to our kids in hopes of one day being rewarded for it right or life essence essence. Yes one day. We'll be rewarded for sure right. Well that's kind of what by Story today I wanted to bring to you is when you talk to you a little about altruism sure yeah. So how'd you feel so when we're taking care of our kids you know we are. We are gifting our time or gifting our services and to the point point where sometimes you know the sleepless nights then and of course we're women we have to Give a lot of our bodies are I can't as well There's lots of different reasons for this But Altruism you know is that sort of the definition of altruistic behavior right. I think the official definition is any behavior that benefits another individual at a cost of oneself. So improbably you can probably think of different examples of we think of examples in in humans right. So maybe that's right in in here in some human. Some humans tend to be more altruistic than others. But what about in birds. Would you think of them as very altruistic I mean mother birds are out there getting worms for their kids and stuff to write than they regurgitate digest the food for their young south. Yeah there's some that yeah and I think you know when you think of altruism you you think of it as very natural to donate your time and energy to your to your offspring right but what about you from you know one human to another human or one bird to another birds going to help each heather out. What's your what's your general thoughts on birds? I know they can get some. You can get a bad rap. Sometimes general thoughts burs. Let's see are we talking about twitter. I'm I'm not. I'm not sure I'm in love with the twitter bird. Twenty Twenty Yucky tweets effort Birds I feel like they. I don't know there must be some mm-hmm altruistic some sort of band together migratory patterns. Hey Go this way. We're going to make a fly V for efficiency right all that all that sort of thing. Yeah no I would. I'm referring specifically as One Bird specifically helping out another bird not just in the whole you know. They're not in the whole flock of birds trying to you know survive as one bird calling up another like. Hey I gotta move gotTa move. Can you help me move my ipad jacket. You show up on Saturday. That's when you really find out how many friends you have is. Just try and move from one house to another and ask if anybody right he can help you out. I don't have to deal with the flight of stairs. That's true so yeah no. The scientists studying rain To See if they could find out any altruistic behavior in birds and They found one species of bird. That will help each other out. They're the African grey parrots African gray parrots. It sounds like one of the ones that are grey parrots an extinct endangered they are endangered. So be nice exactly well to be fair they were also studying Cox as well and The the blue headed Macaws were not it did not pass the test for altruism but the great the great parents stood and this is interesting for biologists because because it's an example of the first non Mammalian altruistic behavior that they can find the wild We'll now this is necessarily in the wild because it was in a laboratory Tori study a set up. But you're readily at could happen in the whilst. Okay so how did these birds. Which bird was moving? which bird was lifting heavy things? What were they doing? Yeah so So I this is this experiment kind of had to happen in two steps They I had to teach the birds about about money so they taunt these birds that they only get food when they exchange a token To get there to get their little reward. Okay okay this is a very this is already starting very human like okay. I listen money. It's all about money. Yeah so the birds don't get any food unless they get concert the token for the human to get them. There was any machine. Sure let's go out. And so so. They train the parrots that once they a would give their token than they would get a reward and then they put they would put two birds in a cage next to each other and they they would basically give one bird all the money. All the tokens and so that bird could exchange the tokens ticket. They're not reward There there buddy bird on the other side had no money and could not get any food and so and so then there was a they put a little hole in between in the two cages and in these African parrot gray parrots. They did fine examples where one parrot would give the token into bird and the other the other cage so that he could turn his token to get some food. Okay so share. Make sure your your buddy buddy isn't starving. I guess come you know having trouble I'll come over. I'll make you have hard times. I'll cook lasagna. Bring it over a little bit. Well how did it take. Do the bird has to be. Visually starving was his ROHR's like Oh look I have ten. I have ten tokens. None outcast here here. Have One while I'm eating or was it. Looks like it's going to die. No No. They didn't wait that long but I guess the bird. The bird was the the rich bird the bird with all the money Could realize that. Hey if you turn in one of these tokens you'll get some food. I have food so here. Try One of these Tokens Over on your side and so yeah. That was one question that I had actually as both of these birds were starving. And there's only one token would would would the bird with the bird shoes to help himself or choose to help the other bird. And how far could you stretch this altruistic behaviour right. Yeah let's see the follow up studies and maybe one of the bird has one token versus ten. I mean are you going to be. You'RE GONNA help out of. He's got nothing nothing he's still needs more clearly.

"I'm sorry day I'm afraid I kept to that it was one of those pictures which are so contrived the is full you about when you move. Big Brother is watching you ten fingers ten toes. That's all that used to matter. Not now now. Only seconds old the exact time women cause of my deck already know. Welcome to you. Do now a podcast where we discussed stories and science and tech. They make us ask exactly that. Thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator and Science Aficionado. I'm Michael Programmer in Tech Guy. So are you doing. I heard you saw a movie today. We did go see a movie a particular Disney movie with two girls and ice magic. Yes it was actually pretty amazing I I was. I was very impressed with it. Usually you don't really expect much from a sequel. So yeah but this one was pretty good. I have to say at least I won't be completely really bored when I go see it. Then no no it was. It was a good story so yeah but Okay so What I wanted to talk about today? AM is. I feel like you've mentioned this before Michael but did you. Have you done like a twenty three and me test before. Yes I have done at twenty three and me Yeah I did that for Christmas last year. Actually so it's been about a year. I've got my whole genetic makeup thing up there okay. So you've already sent it in and you've got your results results and everything like that. Really sorry that you basically wasted all your money. My is that it's not just me. There was a Article came out at It's in the future. Ism Scientific American are reporting basically that genetic code tests are pretty much like horoscope readings. That doesn't surprise me. Actually yeah yeah they. They had a whole article about the skinny world of DNA detest startup. So kind of interesting to read about. I remember you mentioning that you had already had your son so Just interested just start with what kind of prompted you. You don't want to send in your DNA too. You know this company for testing. Oh you know me I'm in the DNA stuff. The data is always into the data. I'm curious about Oh say about you. What what just interested basically from from a genetic standpoint from a law does this say what I really am whereas my nationality come from you know all that stuff yeah and I mean it did match for the most part what I expected? Oh really so what. What did you find out from your test? I actually pulled it up while you're talking. I'm eighty eighty seven point three percent European southern European to like Italy Ish area sixty three point nine percent roughly thought I was roughly seventy five percent. But that's that's obviously Mo- more recent thing I you know a little bit of North Western European British Irish. I know I have one grandfather from Scotland and then then some German three point. Three percent. French and German Germany's not really a place. It's more of a broader scheme. So there's you know some other broadly European stuff like ten percent that area. Actually this has gone up since last time I looked at it. An eleven point. Two Percent Western Asian and northern Africa. And that's like three times as high as last time I looked at this. I know they're always changing data. ooh changes depending on the data that they get. Yes it's like. It's a little bit of crowd source. I guess I guess the more genetics they have the more they can refine isn't this is definitely like two percent Arab Egyptian LEVINTV. That wasn't even on their last time. Interesting so somebody near past Yeah well I I mean I. I'm sure some of it. There is a degree of accuracy to it and you know they can tie your DNA and match it to someone who lives in a village in some remote town. In Italy or Germany they can say with X. amount of certainty that you have ancestors that come from there as well so but what about the other things that tests for you know maybe Does it give you information about medical conditions or allergies. Or that's that's different test. Yeah I mean whenever I want. I can pay them more money to do that. I didn't have it analyze that way. Yeah so that's what a lot of people I think are really kind of looking for these days is maybe trying to see do I have. Am I at risk for some sort of cancer that my parents had and if I have children am I going to pass it to them or or do I. You know if People WanNa know what their what their chances of becoming a medically depressed at some point in their lives could be so these kinds of these I guess as more tests are coming out their offering more and more types of tests that you can try and figure out your what your genetics is coating for and I think that's that's what this article is referring to is you. Can you can start a company you can start. DNA testing company. And and it's it's really kind kind of there's not a whole lot of there's not a whole lot of control from the FDA sure we don't even know what we're really doing. Doc just protected it. This is you're just sending somebody your spit. So why would they really care what a startup is doing what you spit right. Yeah they've already got your money and then if they just send you back a list list of things that you might have go wrong later in your life I mean. How can you prove they're wrong? Basically so You know talks about one woman she sends in her her her DNA and they tell her she has a very high High chance of becoming you know medically depressed in her life but she is wholly fine. You know she's not someone who has experienced that. So how do you hold them accountable for false results or for false predictions. This is sort of like suing in algorithm. The we talked about a couple weeks ago. You really can't because as long as they're catching their language in the right medical and legal speak like we don't really you mean that we have a chance we means it's not like it's not like category say. Oh you're you're going to die when you're thirty five and of course that was Runco so yeah I mean I think the information does indicate how reliable the prediction is you know. So it'll it'll tell them you're X.. Amounts likely to get this disease Aziz. But I don't know I think it's I personally think it's kind of you know maybe irresponsible to make these claims without knowing without being able to you'd give a one hundred percent certainty to it right. I mean well we don't we know there's environmental factors in all sorts of other things to some of these things particularly depression but but even to two simple things like cancer. There's genetic location command are what you eat. May Be combat are to some degree. That's all you're adding up these chances and combining them and who knows. Maybe it's something as detailed as well. You have this one gene. You have a fifty percent chance of maybe developing this issue also are a person that that eats a lot of red meat or get an exercise or you know hangs out a lot skyscrapers or whatever the case may be. Yeah I think we have sort of this. Elementary understanding of what. DNA is a code that controls what we look like but in reality are traits are so so complex that you know we may have gene for a certain intolerance or a certain genetic disease but it's not always necessarily going to be expressed because of maybe some other genes that turn that off and so yeah it's not fully understood. Yeah so so this just kind of came out just to let consumers know that it's not it's not all you send in your DNA you send in your money and you you get this list awesome results but it's just it's not you you should take it with a grain of salt. Sure absolutely everything with the greatest especially cutting edge stuff that we barely understand right right I understand. I guess this doesn't matter for for that because you're specifically looking for these genes but I think they're only analyzing a specific maybe not specific but a random subset of. It's not like they are taking all twenty three chromosome twenty eight homes and right twenty-three Amita They're not analyzing like the tire. Double Helix like every single family. They have subsections that they know. Count for things right some chance that that they could be wrong in that regard to I remember hearing about somebody that sent sent their spit away to like three or four of them and they differed in terms of like even in their ancestry was was different from each one. Yeah that's yeah that's the thing is like if you send it to different companies. You're going to get different different results based on their different algorithms and yeah and if you compare one human to another human anywhere on this planet their DNA is going to be ninety nine point nine percent identical because because we're all humans but you know it's up minor differences. That's what it's looking for on the on the genes that we know control the certain traits that that we have differences in. That's the way that we know with quotation marks right. I mean we know this means that. But maybe there's more to it than that absolutely clean. Yeah there's a whole lot. In the Apogee EPA genome that we're still trying to understand and so yeah. I think it's just you know you go to these sites and they make a lot of claims and So I have in my hand. A attest an envelope that I my my mom got this for me. My birthday a a year ago and I still haven't sent it in partly because I've just been busy Part Lazy and part a little bit. Maybe to skeptical tickle of the information that I'm going to receive. It's a food allergy test. Yeah so this isn't this isn't for my ancestry. It's specifically for food allergies to see what foods and I eating may be contributing to health issues or inflammation you. You know what. I'm a little bit nervous. Senate in is this a slot is this a saliva one or is this a blood one. It's actually supposed to be hair hair. yeah I wonder how that works. That's one of the reasons why I was a little bit skeptical. You're supposed to pull from the roots. So they can have got Salts from your SCALP SCALP but I don't know it just seems kind of odd and then so now I have this Once I send it in in you've already sent in your DNA This company Vinnie has your DNA for the rest of eternity unless you. I don't know. Are you able to get your DNA back. Is that a thing I have looked into it. I did there was like seventeen waivers..

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"I've been loved what you see before you first of a new I call it. Experiment seeks to see how in his bullet-proof by a proof and can think faster than supercomputer. Welcome to you do now. A podcast where we discussed stories and signs and tech that. Make US ask exactly that. Everyone thinks listening on your host. Stephanie Educator in science efficient aficionado Michael Programmer in Tech Guy Hello Stephanie Happy Abby. Monday happy Veterans Day. Do you have any veterans in your family. A father was a veteran Vietnam. Let's I two coastguard cousins as well. That are yeah yeah. My Dad was in the coastguard. So let's celebrate them today day But my question for you today. Michael is how much sleep do you get on typical night who. I think we've already discussed that. I have two young kids so not enough not enough at all right How much sleep do you need to get in order to be happy and well-functioning enchanting every day what would be your ideal number? I've always found a little over. Seven hours is usually where I'm where I'm happiest. Yeah Oh seven and a half of like in bed time I read it off you I because I have the fitbit's yeah last night. I got five hours and twenty minutes the night before was six hours twenty three minutes and that was we're good nights so well. Some scientists at the University of California San Francisco may have found a gene that. What would allow you to not sleep at all? I'm done for that right. So there are some people out there who typically indeed much Louis sleep than average human being so Just kind of you said you need seven hours of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation. Then would recommend that you as a an adults would need a between seven nine hours to be well-functioning so seven hours is actually pretty good. How much do we actually get As a new parents I think There was a report that came out. That new parents will get about Four hours and forty four minutes of sleep in an average night. Does that sound about right to you. Yeah that sounds absolutely about right. I'm love I'm past the the new parents Youngest is two and a half so I should be getting more sleep now. But that's just in the first year of your baby's life so so I yeah I have a five month old right now and we are dealing with some pretty significant sleep regression He likes to wake up in the middle of night and party. Hard from two in the morning sometimes so yeah so my typic- sleep right now is averaging probably about that that much maybe five hours I would guess so. That's you know that's kind of hard right now but I so that's why I was kind of interested in what they're doing. Being at the University of California they found a gene a mutation. So that it's it's a point mutation in neuropeptide tide receptor. NPS are one and it's responsible for the short sleep phenotype so there's a They think they they were studying a father and his son who to bigly only get four to five hours of sleep a night and they're happy ready to go they don't need more than then four hours of sleep how we're measuring that. What's happy and ready to go because that feels somewhat subjective and probably based on what you have to do what you were doing? Your body is healing overnight right. So if you're doing one thing you need more sleep even be happy but still be your body could still be fatigued. Yeah absolutely so. If you don't get enough sleep what happens what what is I mean. What are some things that can happen when you don't get those You know at least seven seven hours of sleep you definitely have a lack of alertness rates. you have an impaired memory. You can't remember things you tend to forget important bills to be paid or there's a an event you need to do that can happen I I've been no onto leave my keys in the door fire when I come home. There's a when you're I mean it's crazy when you really start especially if you notice. It was apparent that things you just forget a when you sleep you like that you just like dragging on. I done. Forget where we cabinet like the plates are in. What would they do? The I I was. I was struggling struggling about two weeks ago. There was. We had some sleep issues. I wasn't feeling so good so I wasn't sleeping. Well I went to go take medicine like Sudafed and I just put the whole capsule like the blister packaged package in my mouth without popping the pill this was wrong. What did I do that? Yeah no there's some. Yeah you can definitely have some impairment in your every day quality of life and those are just some those are just some short term symptoms of lack of sleep You know in the long term it can be really bad bad for your for your heart or your blood pressure to not get enough sleep over a long period of time and it can even affect your appearance. I definitely have circles under my eyes since since the view has been born and it can also increase the stress hormone. Cortisol in your body in Cortisol is not is not a good thing to have. You know definitely contribute to weight gain it contributes to wrinkle so Yeah there's some there can be some some pretty major things happen when you don't get enough sleep so so yeah I don't don't know too much about the man who claims he only needs four hours of sleep but here's what they did. They found a gene in in this man that was his point mutation and they actually Caused caused by mutation in mice Just to see what happened And so these mice after they You know exhibit this mutation they show and This is what the study says. They showed increase mobility time and reduce sleep moreover. The animals were resistant to cognitive impairment induced. By the sleep deprivation so of course you know they have the mice running around in mazes and they have to remember where their food is and so then they then they don't let these mice sleep. I'm I'm I'm assuming they keep them up. I'm not sure. How would you keep mice from sleeping in a controlled experiment? Just poke them incessantly. I don't know how you keep a you. Keep a mouse awake. I guess you just don't give them the nasty keep them in the like the hard maze of the Many just poke them. I really like stimulate. Relate them right keep stimulating them so they don't sleep. I guess well I don't know if maybe they're not yeah. It wasn't clear to me in this article if they were purposely keeping them awake or if they were just measuring how much these mice were sleeping but either way these mice were not sleeping. The correct amount that you mess with the light dark so I mean their animals so they sleep. You know when it's light out my sleep. What his light so I guess you just turn the lights on basically? Oh it's time to get up. Well I don't know if turning turning on the lights would necessarily wake up mice from sleeping I feel like mice are gonNA sleep whenever they wanNA sleep unless you're doing something to keep them up physically it's like being a sound cat. meowing predators will get them up playing twenty four.

A New Gene Helps Explain Why Some People Need Less Sleep

"Everyone thinks listening on your host. Stephanie Educator in science efficient aficionado Michael Programmer in Tech Guy Hello Stephanie Happy Abby. Monday happy Veterans Day. Do you have any veterans in your family. A father was a veteran Vietnam. Let's I two coastguard cousins as well. That are yeah yeah. My Dad was in the coastguard. So let's celebrate them today day But my question for you today. Michael is how much sleep do you get on typical night who. I think we've already discussed that. I have two young kids so not enough not enough at all right How much sleep do you need to get in order to be happy and well-functioning enchanting every day what would be your ideal number? I've always found a little over. Seven hours is usually where I'm where I'm happiest. Yeah Oh seven and a half of like in bed time I read it off you I because I have the fitbit's yeah last night. I got five hours and twenty minutes the night before was six hours twenty three minutes and that was we're good nights so well. Some scientists at the University of California San Francisco may have found a gene that. What would allow you to not sleep at all? I'm done for that right. So there are some people out there who typically indeed much Louis sleep than average human being so Just kind of you said you need seven hours of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation. Then would recommend that you as a an adults would need a between seven nine hours to be well-functioning so seven hours is actually pretty good. How much do we actually get As a new parents I think There was a report that came out. That new parents will get about Four hours and forty four minutes of sleep in an average night. Does that sound about right to you. Yeah that sounds absolutely about right. I'm love I'm past the the new parents Youngest is two and a half so I should be getting more sleep now. But that's just in the first year of your baby's life so so I yeah I have a five month old right now and we are dealing with some pretty significant sleep regression He likes to wake up in the middle of night and party. Hard from two in the morning sometimes so yeah so my typic- sleep right now is averaging probably about that that much maybe five hours I would guess so. That's you know that's kind of hard right now but I so that's why I was kind of interested in what they're doing. Being at the University of California they found a gene a mutation. So that it's it's a point mutation in neuropeptide tide receptor. NPS are one and it's responsible for the short sleep phenotype so there's a They think they they were studying a father and his son who to bigly only get four to five hours of sleep a night and they're happy ready to go they don't need more than then four hours of sleep how we're measuring that. What's happy and ready to go because that feels somewhat subjective and probably based on what you have to do what you were doing? Your body is healing overnight right. So if you're doing one thing you need more sleep even be happy but still be your body could still be fatigued. Yeah absolutely so. If you don't get enough sleep what happens what what is I mean. What are some things that can happen when you don't get those You know at least seven seven hours of sleep you definitely have a lack of alertness rates. you have an impaired memory. You can't remember things you tend to forget important bills to be paid or there's a an event you need to do that can happen I I've been no onto leave my keys in the door fire when I come home. There's a when you're I mean it's crazy when you really start especially if you notice. It was apparent that things you just forget a when you sleep you like that you just like dragging on. I done. Forget where we cabinet like the plates are in. What would they do? The I I was. I was struggling struggling about two weeks ago. There was. We had some sleep issues. I wasn't feeling so good so I wasn't sleeping. Well I went to go take medicine like Sudafed and I just put the whole capsule like the blister packaged package in my mouth without popping the pill this was wrong. What did I do that? Yeah no there's some. Yeah you can definitely have some impairment in your every day quality of life and those are just some those are just some short term symptoms of lack of sleep You know in the long term it can be really bad bad for your for your heart or your blood pressure to not get enough sleep over a long period of time and it can even affect your appearance. I definitely have circles under my eyes since since the view has been born and it can also increase the stress hormone. Cortisol in your body in Cortisol is not is not a good thing to have. You know definitely contribute to weight gain it contributes to wrinkle so Yeah there's some there can be some some pretty major things happen when you don't get enough sleep so so yeah I don't don't know too much about the man who claims he only needs four hours of sleep but here's what they did. They found a gene in in this man that was his point mutation and they actually Caused caused by mutation in mice Just to see what happened And so these mice after they You know exhibit this mutation they show and This is what the study says. They showed increase mobility time and reduce sleep moreover. The animals were resistant to cognitive impairment induced. By the sleep deprivation so of course you know they have the mice running around in mazes and they have to remember where their food is and so then they then they don't let these mice sleep. I'm I'm I'm assuming they keep them up. I'm not sure. How would you keep mice from sleeping in a controlled experiment? Just poke them incessantly. I don't know how you keep a you. Keep a mouse awake. I guess you just don't give them the nasty keep them in the like the hard maze of the Many just poke them. I really like stimulate. Relate them right keep stimulating them so they don't sleep. I guess well I don't know if maybe they're not yeah. It wasn't clear to me in this article if they were purposely keeping them awake or if they were just measuring how much these mice were sleeping but either way these mice were not sleeping. The correct amount that you mess with the light dark so I mean their animals so they sleep. You know when it's light out my sleep. What his light so I guess you just turn the lights on basically? Oh it's time to get up. Well I don't know if turning turning on the lights would necessarily wake up mice from sleeping I feel like mice are gonNA sleep whenever they wanNA sleep unless you're doing something to keep them up physically it's like being a sound cat. meowing predators will get them up playing twenty four hours of baby shark. It probably stress levels. I know my blood pressure goes through the roof Yeah so yeah but anyways they put these mice through some trials After you know inducing this this mutation and they were able to perform just like the other mice that were able to get more sleep so the idea is Can we somehow activate this mutation ashamed in our own bodies in would you. I mean I absolutely would but can way I mean Nicer tiny mice don't have the same level level of brain function that we do. I mean I get that people need less sleep. But what are we doing this. Do they think this is an efficiency efficiency thing like asleep important. We know sleep is very important. Dreaming is important our our these mutations more efficient or they like hacks acts that are making your body seem better. But you're not actually doing the healing and regenerating that you need to do.

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"All of mankind was united in celebration we marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to a scientist so preoccupied with whether or not they could stay why does this still seem like gambling to you I mean why do you think the same five guys make it to the final table at the world series of poker every that everyone listening on your educator in scientific and I'm Michael Programmer and totally not in a and C back you're not in a good I'm definitely not an ai this definitely isn't a computer you're talking to automatically recorded responses to everything yeah the voice I think is the most difficult part exactly I did they seem to be getting a better with that but we could have a so Do you think Stephanie that do take five of the best poker players in the world made millions of dollars main poker them up against computer no women hold are bluffing solid poker who who do you think will win okay so five expert poker players playing against in a computer correct in poker Texas holdem no limit bluffing lying the seat all that fun stuff no way I don't I think the humans would win well facebook faced because both a robot on our robot face because both yeah I that did exactly that they built they beat the some of the best players in the world they developed a robot the robot I keep thinking of as we're about so that's an interesting thing to unpack later but the revolution yeah it's it's here the I is beating US at other Games they've already go they beat us at chess years ago now and they've been able to be this one on one in poker for a while there's something about the one input you want target but he gets five players with all sorts of various bluffing and whatever it is they have developed a that consistently wins look at the pricing because I mean I think I like that I think it's you know it's not surprising that a computer can beat us at chess there are certain rules and if a computer can plan ahead you know much further advanced a human brain usually can US right so that that's definitely not surprising but the thing with with Fokker is that you can lie it's not you know the computer cannot all wave predict what a human is going to do like it can the computer can keep track of I'm sure what cards are in play or what cards have been played and what are the infinite possibilities of hands that the miss could have but how the computer going to know if the human it lacks computer yeah so the computer doesn't it Cellino whether or not you're lying but it knows what your bet signifies you're obviously it's not analyzing I have a three parts it's not text analyzing but knows about your bet it knows what you bet that's information it's it's you can call it a lie is called bluffing in poker it's not a lie it is up and up but so it's not really it's not really ally you're saying I think my hand is worse I think that I can win this hand by betting fifty bucks on his hand this flop or wherever yeah this this river so so it's not really a lot you're not lie so the idea that this is this is this is why you're not bluffing so much trying to make it financially the trying to lower the financial incentives for somebody else to call so the way poker walks is you know a really good hand I'm not going to bet that hand because I don't want you to fold if I say oh I got two aces about a hundred bucks you're going to be like he's a really good hand I'm GonNa hold and then I get no money so there's there's a little bit of that they'll the computer obviously knows if you bet one hundred bucks he doesn't want me to fold necessarily or maybe he does because he's profane he has two and three in his garbage and he's GONNA lose and he wants to be the thing that I have as this this is all the stuff that the computer has analysed so it turns out you mentioned the possibilities and looking forty down the road that is not what's happening here it it turns out it's doesn't make sense to look at the end of the game it looks looks immediate thing and I guess this place into the bluff your in early and like I said you WanNa bet if you have a garbage cards you may make a block you might one hundred bucks a hoping everybody will fold before they get hands that are so much better than that it's financial incentive for them to stay in the head whereas it looks like at the end of the game you're GonNa win so you're going to bet high you sort of don't WanNa look away and you're GonNa look at that apple things you analyze the moves that you're making So what does this say this says it another is the the machine is called the is called pluribus it was developed by Facebook I research in New York with a Carnegie Colleague to Uh Sant Home it's no brown Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh and facebook research in New York it doesn't really say who's from facebook but yeah so they developed this they played uh five pros at a time for a total of ten thousand hands and they emerged I emerged victorious how much do you think it doesn't say what they were playing for I wonder if they were playing for real money in auto just pretending if they could yeah I mean I mean there's definitely the probability AH poker you know no matter how good you are you still need to have a good hand every once in a while right in order well maybe it depends obviously you have you always have that hands you'll never will you know so it's all about yeah there's a lot like for example if you're not into poker I haven't played in a while but I I played for some online back when it was a little more fashionable you get to a point you start with two hearts and you have around a bad unusually you flopped three am a Har- car your possible you five cards actually hand you know you're GonNa get more you can make your best possible hand out of those seven cards total carson but you know roughly yet so if you have two hearts in the office to hearts you know you have two chances to more cards to get that heart to get that with wash and there's Dan Steph flushes GonNa win so you can calculate your odds you know your two cards coming out of forty seven cards remaining Chas I don't have the numbers in front of me but it's a decent chance that you're going to get that heart so you want sort of slow play you want to put a lot of money in the pot 'cause you watch the number of times that you win in that situation when you money so say you win twenty five percent of the time at that state you WanNa make sure that your your investment is less a quarter of the total winning so if you're only if you're GonNa win a hundred bucks on that pot you'll break evenings you put in twenty five each time you went twenty five four times win once I did it backwards so you only twenty five percent of the time if you have twenty five bars pot you WanNa make sure you more than a hundred 'cause he's you play at four times against the odds twenty five percent so in one every four times if you're betting twenty twenty five dollars invested about pot if one hundred dollars every fourth time you hey you're breaking even so yeah that's where that's where the odds come in you WanNa make sure you're putting enough money in the pot thoughts I mean you're yeah so you're describing and you know the the theory behind playing the game dodges the you know there's a probability is the probability is and there I'm sure that possible to program this game theory so that everything that you just described could be understood by you know in order Gotcha to decide when they're gonNA win they're going to bet and when they're gonNA fold but I guess my question is so not so you know what my question is how Oh are they programming the psychology of it of how humans react react it'd be it's machine learning so it's is in the decision points it compares the state of the game with blueprint and searches few moves ahead but not necessarily the end of the Games we'll see how it played out so every I like with humans in general or does it make decisions based on which human they're actually playing no it actually a toilet itself to play against itself so I played you know it said six versions of itself and it played against each other and learn what the responses are and I guess you know it played against bad computer the first couple of times and then it could go back a thousand move later ten thousand miles later like oh I bet hi there that was bad I kept losing every time I bet high with two aces or whatever the situation wasn't aware from that and was able to at each decision point so you get the plot but now it has to make a decision add to a call to a raise and I it could see what usually happened with where was and it could it could go with strategy apparently what what happens is that it was is changing its strategy better than that humans so what humans will tell you a human poker players will tell you that you want to change your strategy like if you're always aggressive if you're betting a lot because you wanna try it get your bluffs throw eventually people will catch up at your there's always bets high so I'm GonNa wait till I have a really killer hand he's GonNa bet high and he's going to give me a lot of money payout when I if I do the opposite if I play conservatively only really strong hands he's putting so much money in aggressively that I will wait in the long run the trick is the trick is to get this to play conservatively and then when that guy he's got a good hand so now he's calling a bachelor a previously he was he was a bold him because he was playing more aggressively so that you can take his money now when you're playing gives every 'cause you're playing the role sort of flip but it's hard to do that women's don't change that easily whereas computers just picking Sean has no emotional connection to that strategy to what he did last time it's is looking at overall so it changes a strategy pretty well and that keeps the the humans from.

"Now podcast discuss stories and science and tech that make us exactly what everyone thinks we're listening in your host. Stephanie Educator in Science Aficionado and I'm Michael Programmer Guy Definitely so we're last week we talked about Google photos and UCR searching with Google Lens texts in its fully rolled out yet or anything but one thing I just think of that might be useful tool or I don't know how the implemented lamented but advertisement so I typed in Delta and I was able to see all sorts of random delta add that I may or may not have come across and even notice consciously but now I can search ah images per for advertisements and I'm sure there's an advertising angle to this that will be what we'll find out sooner or later you can search your photos for Delta. Why would you have a photo of Delta of anything Delta Michael Anything like I take a picture of city all the city field ads in the background or I take it at the airport you know Burger King behind me or things like that so I could see this being away to monotony's as I think about like Youtube influencers and that sort of thing like he is my video and you can check my video to see how many times a video yet but search my texts Selby's instagram post and everything's how much the advertiser is shown up because I pictures in front of you know. You're always take you don't even notice it sometimes but you're always in front of advertisements. You're walking down. The street ups store. You pass this you sitting next to a magazine that has advertisement on the cover and you take a picture like this stuff all shows up when you search yeah. I think they start noticing that a lot more. You're now that this is an option so but anyway it's something I need to tell you Michael that well Do you know Oh that they have printed three. D. Printed a Cuban heart. I feel like I saw an episode of Grey's anatomy about that right but I know yeah working hard. Yeah you ready for your Newhart your new three fringe at heart. Can I get that in blue absolutely no yeah you you're you know we've been talking about how people are going to start living the longer and longer and that there's probably someone alive today dot will live to at least one hundred and fifty if not more right so we're one step closer to that because now it's looking like we may have the ability to just go ahead and three. D. print organs whenever we need them. Entrusts assume okay so I I this has always been one of the use cases for three D. Printing other non grey's anatomy scenarios. So how does this work while the August tunnel. What is what is where he actually printing okay yeah? Let's so like I said we've we've had this idea for a while back in in two thousand and three the started trying to three d prints themselves to see what they could do they all they call it bio printing and so they've been working on actually three D. Printing and an organ for a while by it's one thing that they a challenge that they've had to to overcome is the first of all the material what you printing with kind of polymers. Are you getting ring where you're getting that and then how do you make it stick together and become an actual functioning organ though yeah so there's a biotech company called via life for d o a three. D. Printing up forty fourteen adopt the four D. Yeah they are. They are printing. They're working on printing actual organs and so what what they did is they developed a process that of bio printing and it's actually a miniaturized human right now. It's not a full working king human heart at this moment although it's definitely something that they're working for model Diorama. It's the tell tale. Heart is the awards so basically you're saying it's a it's a heart functions to the heart pumping blood through it. Theoretically it will be able to pump blood in it. I don't know that they've actually tried to you know. Put it inside of any living organism. I think that's probably the next step is to maybe three D print a mouse heart mark and see if they can get it working inside of a mouse. The first step is just the I would say. The first step is probably just engineering just corrupts to some hoses right against hearts more than just a physical structure. I mean it's doing stuff so is it. What is it going. They do like what the hot in the heart you know. It's not just a pomp writing from option into the heart or well. Just the hardest jets were pumping blood and so it's getting blood oxygenated blood that comes from the lungs we'll go to heart and then the heart will pump that oxygenated blood to the rest of the body and so then the oxygen is delivered and the D. auction oxygenated blood blood will come back to the heart in the heart pumps that back to the lungs gets more oxygen and then that goes back to the heart and then to the rest of the body so it's the cycle of getting use blood putting putting into the lungs getting oxygen getting that blood back in the coming into the body so so you've got all the different chambers that are are working in a sequence to make this happen and it it has to do with a muffled being activated so that the Chambers are pumping property. Eh It's kind of like a sort of the the nerves that are that are activating the muscles. It's like a you know an electric type of the bump bump bump in Info so yeah. It's an it's like a machine a little tiny machine in your body. That's making all of this happened and so yes so printing the hardest one thing they they printed the heart. They're using proprietary ink or too proprietary. Bio Inc has similar properties to gelatin is is what they said and it was designed to replicate human bio materials and they start out they started out with with heart cells and they're getting the stem cells of the heart and they take themselves out and then they are reactivating down to adding certain materials so that they will be eh develop into heart cells and that's there is these is the stem cells that have been the activated to grow into heartfelt sure yeah they won't reject your body won't reject that MHM Oregon. I guess if it's three with transplanting organs is you have to wait for. You have to wait for a match because if you're if if it's not the exact time type thing blood type and you know everything that your body is then your body's going to reject it so if we can take your were owned. Hartselle you've got a bad heart can take your heart cells and get the stem cells from that and then develop that engine new Hartselle now then we'll just three prince you a new heart okay. Do I have to so one of my questions. Here would be is about throw proud. I mean how do you I guess. Is it just as fast as the blood comes in but like you know you're you're working out. You're running your your shorter brab. You're not getting enough oxygen. How can your heart not speed up. Your heart doesn't necessarily need speed up the idea. Is your buddies. Your body's pumping blood faster when you're breathing heavily because it needs the more oxygen oxygen but if you're if you're not hooked up to that same system the same way does it does it need to even your holiday too when you had a brief yeah so they're going to have to hook it up to the nerves that are coming from your from your spine that are telling that hard to beat and you know and I'm telling it to beat factor when you need more oxygen so but it's I mean that's going to be similar to any other sort of organ transplant that you might have is making sure that it's it's hooked up to all of your your arteries and veins and everything properly so I mean that's definitely still going to be a challenge but got it. They have your exact replica of your own heart then. It's a replica of your heart. It's a it's a recreation of the heart has built up muscles over time not to digress too much but did you know that your heart is unique. My heart is absolutely gene. Look that's what I of course go but like we could there. Are there are people out there. That could tell you with radar who you are looking at you so using like better.

I'm sorry i'm afraid need i can't do that. It was one of those pictures which are so contrived to the is fully you about when you move big brother is watching you welcome to you did what now podcast where we <hes> stories size and tech that make us ask exactly that everyone thanks for listening on your host stephanie educator and sites addition auto and i'm michael programmer intact guy so stephanie. Do you use google photos. Where do you start. Pull the zillion product who take your kids in of everything thank you you use google photos and i think last night checked. There was probably like eighteen thousand photos loaded air. I i actually haven't checked by number. That's ridiculous about it. Yeah a photos of everything yeah you know. People used to keep off uh up. My mom had turned up of our comedy. When you have photo of your kids my kids know. I have a couple of photo albums but i don't know what you'd call them albums. I guess they're like they're curious. They're printed. They're not like me photos putting them in a thing scooper. There was like i got one of our honeymoon. I got one trip. We went to europe but it's pregnant yeah. It's it's a photo book where it's just four a scrap. Go page with four photos or vice exposure slit in its you know actually i'm actually why was even looking at my google account because i was trying to figure out why should made you with all of these photos. I haven't been good about printing any of them. Out for any of my kids have no photo albums. I do have one from when we first started was one year old. I made a photo album and that is the last time i may actually physically printed any photos out so trying to figure out what to do with all of them and i i guess maybe facebook listening to my conversation with someone in ad for chat books and yeah you can go in there and you can shoot you can connect to your google photos. You can choose which photos you wanna use and then. I was just going back and i'm like wow i have so many photos on. I google photos. How do i even choose which ones to add to a chat book. Do who i make up a photo album for each year or do i just do it by then it just it god honestly a guide overwhelming to me and and i just reached quit everything was fine. We won't have any photos principle for my mother-in-law. Mainly occasionally for my mother are just photos to put up or they just repainted. My mother-in-law's repainted her house so she had a couple older pictures of like school photos of ten by twenty. You know that's too big. <hes> eight ten standard size printed a couple of big ones for a quick quickly before we dive into google and the algorithms and the internet the cloud of obviously have the solution for you before we dive into that i just want to mention i saw an article last week that k._f._c.'s testing a with beyond burger or beyond whatever the company is called makes the plant base me. They're trying out this chicken sandwich. That's gonna be planned paste and they're rolling out right. Now i think in atlanta but presumably it's going to be all over over if it's not completely beyond chicken beyond chicken beyond chicken while his grueling about the beyond chicken though i did z. <hes> headline somewhere or blurb that impossible which is the other company is is working on a fish sandwich for somebody so pretty much. We're gonna the animals we find soon. We'll be plant based everything everybody vegan yeah. I don't know for some reason baked. Chicken sounds more terrible to me than faked beef. I don't now yeah yeah definitely does then chicken can be sketchy as it is. Sometimes maybe at mcdonalds anyways with their chicken nuggets. It's not actually faced off chicken but yeah. It's so processed. I guess if you whether you're basing this the starter on ground chicken or ground like i chicken east off. It probably is all roughly added to try. It and i will <hes> on that note. I did try the impossible oppor. I took look like a two minute soundbite. It didn't seem episode so i handed it to the last episode we recorded about wearables and tales which went live this morning as we record this last week when anybody that's not us listens to us so stay tuned to be the end of last week episode and you can hear me tasty an impossible walker <hes> listen to that just to see you liked it or not there. We got the this just a trick to make. You're listening to a podcast but i actually yeah i mean google photos. I don't know how yeah well i mean. Some of you have to curate yourself but i'm constantly getting bombarded by with great an album fear trick. You know you went to valley stream and here's an album some of all the pictures you took. This is just me you know visiting my mother line taking pictures s._o. That the album is like you took a picture of this random expiration date and a picture of your kids and for some reason he took a picture of the t._v. Them watching dora the explorer but your kid grabs the phone and take slash photo one hundred photos of your all in twenty seconds that's right actually they hold on the button at least on my phone l. down about and it creates a jeff of it right or gift depending on how you pronounce that officially said the inventor of just said it ms jeff jim because that usually go with gift but i usually don't say it. I just say yeah so a google is actually a role in avenue feature now where you can search the taxed of the photo. It's process that that's pulling the tax out of you. Take a picture of you know anything. It'll you can search for that taxed of the vote of what you've taken a picture on pushes. It's neat and maybe scary a little bit taming tax like if i take a picture of trees particularly picture tree i can coach mike dual arose and just search for the trees and it'll no yes. Yes well that that's already. That's not what i'm talking about. It's already been able to do that it. It can recognize trees trees can recognize beer. It can recognize a lot of things it's not perfect. It won't get one hundred percent of the pictures but if you're like me you took forty pictures of this thing thing and it finds three <hes> you can just click to that date and find them all advisories. I was fooling around. I typed in <hes> root beer float into my google photos and found it found a couple of menus weather said root beer float on it or ice cream but he the way it also and it also showed me all sorts of <hes> various drew frothy drinks which maybe some votes somewhere beer somewhere just like prophecy. We milky mess thing and so it's up. What can i search for in terms of images in terms of <hes>. Are we going back to the text the search thing or are you still on the search for trees. No yeah texting. So what are you talking about it. It's not session for trees would have made searching for the text in the image you can search for wifi password so instead of writing down and try to remember what your wifi password is a piece of paper and walking over the computer or whatever it is. You're doing you take a picture of your wifi password on a piece of paper in the mall or at the restaurant. You're at and it'll just you. You can just search for it on top of that. The it's called google lens. It will let you copy the text out of the picture you take a picture. You're at the restaurant you take a picture of this absurdly long ridiculous wi fi passwords like nine open parentheses capital and t t star and instead of trying to type that out you can just search for wifi password or mike burger king wifi and it'll show you the images you can actually just copy paste it into your wi fi apple interesting so yeah just trying to right now i had had a took a screen shot of me my thought on line to the few days ago and in the green shot the means that welcome to adulthood old hood you get mad when they re arrange the grocery store now which is totally true in my town or rearranging the target and they've you've been real regime targeted for past month. It's finished for another couple months. Everybody's extremely angry. They can't fight anything target i of course so this is very appropriate means. They're just took a screen shot of it and it saved my google photos and now i take in store and the pop right up so yeah so how did how does google read the screen shots or i should roy. You know i indian right down because i i thought i knew what to stand his third for its o._c._r. Which is optical something recognition optical. I should win this downturn down. I will have to type that into the show now. Is there something i should know what it is especially since i work for a company that did this year optical character recognition character. That was obvious this this is why you're recording with a laptop and i'm just like in a car parking lot. Be nice to have the so yeah. I actually work with our company that did this. I guess maybe they still do it. It's called e discovery missiles ten years ago they work on they would take laptops and d._v._d.'s eighty and like hard drives from like lawyers and it was just gain like every document on it and o._c._r. Is pulling a text from documents. So this was a long complicated process. It wasn't mike just click and all your photos like cr and it was brought the all sorts of things but it was organized to digitize their stacks and stacks of paper uber so now we're at the stage where every photo we take we can search through the tax the photos and it's just another level deeper of all the data and profile that you can store us us now yeah well shoot. I'm pretty sure got a picture of my. I heard license somewhere. Learn here. Yeah i take a driver's license. I've taken a picture my social security number. That guy should go delete that picture. Now i guess technically these aren't public but like yeah i mean it wouldn't take much for this. You know make it album purchaser walgreens and then it started their database and it gets hacked or something with these google photos is it's only one password away from somebody hacking into all of your photos i mean i think i've got a pretty good password this word but anybody who really wanted to and have the ability could log into figure somehow my password if they wanted to right sure i mean this is why you're supposed to to <hes> to step two factor identification authentic authentication on i don't i don't either but the ideas if somebody logs you get this you get this. Some of it's not turned on by default and a lot of places..

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"<hes> i'm sorry to. I'm afraid i can't do that. There are fourteen varieties of tomato soup available from this replicator with rice with vegetables both bony in style with pasta with glenn specify hot or chilled hot hot playing tomato soup. We don't know who struck first us within but we know that it was that scorch the sky welcome to you did what now podcast where discuss stories and science and tech make ask exactly that everyone thinks listening on your host stepney educator in science aficionado and i'm michael programmer guide us stephanie anything quickly to discuss before we dive into the story. I've been following the crisper stuff of course and yeah definitely. We need to talk about what's going on in crisper. They might have a new safer alternative down by chinese scientists so that's exciting so we may talk about that. At some point i figure i saw a headline about somebody asking permission to to china or or or something going to china to do some human experiments so is that i did get a push alert on my phone this morning our <hes> our friend elon musk and spacex are watching an israeli satellite. Click on a link. Actually i just got a push notification. I guess you know because your phones watching you and all that right right from n._b._c. News dot com has pushed alert on my phone so watch live spacex washes israeli satellite imas seventeen yeah let chino google what what about you. I must right. Well speaking of you know. We were talking about neural network last week and i guess they put out some a._i. Generated jazz music. That's kind of interesting. Let's go. I'm always i'm always intrigued by the robot d._n._a. I create art stuff. I'll have to look into that for future episodes but today we're gonna talking about robots. You already talked about robots robots. What do we got about robots. What's going on with the duck. Oh there's a lot going on the robot world. Though everything's still kind of fledgling legislation and investors aren't sure what to do with it but who cares about investors. That's interesting <hes> so have you come across you. Those robots everywhere now as i think loews has wa and stop and shop doc as well. Here's ones in malls. You come across as i did. I went to a <unk>. It was last spring. I went to south by southwest in austin and they handle it a robot. I forget what it's called but it's it was in japan and i i don't know if it was a prototype or what but it's basically meant to be your little friends a little. Oh pets and you interact with it. The more it tends to like you and so it'll come up interact with you more and so it you you know something like it would have a favorite in the family and it looks like a little a little white little cute robots kind of like wally. <hes> you know from the movie and so you know of course i brought home the brochure <unk>. My daughter wanted one right away. You're you're going to be pretty popular but i think that they were these robots were designed to maybe help the aging population who don't always have family to come and check on them every day and so you know having some sort of some sort of being to interact with everyday could be very important even if it's a robot being present so let's not that's not quite what i meant. That's a that's a cool. I've i'm interested in that. It's very cool i on that but how about you haven't come across any robots in the wild out of supermarket in them all anything like that no not at all no room. Stop stop and shocking shops in texas grocery store. No no we're in h._e._b. Bi-country okay yeah. I don't know if that is so stop and shop as a. It's a pretty big chain. They're all over running northeast east coast. I have no idea but anyway that's one of my local supermarkets that we'd go to a lot and they have a new robot called mardi. Mardi is a giant. It's like six seven feet tall and it's got really is on it and it just basically roams up and down the aisles looking for spill so that's all right now is just looking for spells. It debuted at most stop shores up months ago and you you know it's it's a robot. It rove's thing it's not really doing much though and what my daughter's is fascinated by it and the other one the two year old is kinda scared so it's a six foot tall roomba. Numba is what you're telling me. No it's not gleaning is just looking. It's alerting when he finds a spell. It starts shouting in english and spanish. Hey spill. I'll four spill four. It's a robot that doesn't even clean up their spills. I mean it just tells you that there are spills. I mean people can do that sure but you'd have to have somebody constantly roaming roaming the store. I mean you don't go baby. The guests years don't always go back dial five in the corner and i'll miss something other so robots are maybe looking to fill in those spaces in between tween where like human sensors are noticing or were sensor camera might notice so that you know you're not might not notice small spill between kiosks or something that robot lot notice this is this is perhaps could use of them. <hes> marty can be trek pretty easily. I was definitely in the store and saw him flipping out over like a scofflaw author crack in the tile on the floor that he thought was a spill and somebody came over and just sorta like rebooted deming. Send him on his way so i'm not sure he's really useful besides you know getting in the way because he moves like two miles an hour. It's just in the way for the most part. Can you interact. It's scary is it meant to interact act with the customers as well as looking for spills. Nope nope no not at all. You can't even and i this is my main. It doesn't even have a scanner on it like at least at least he's let me scan an item and that led him say like yeah that item is to ninety nine like how simple that baby but my way at least yeah the novelty of that that would be pretty interesting. I think at least you could get some interaction as instead. It's just this big gray plastic robot with google. Is it scare children. I guess that's so so that's that's a simple robot so amazon of course was amazon wants to be in everything. Amazon is supposedly working on a robot. They're going to call it. Vesta <unk> stuff which is the goddess of hearth and home in rome. The roman goddess of carthage home is basically not a lot of information about it but people are saying they've seen people people that amazon is hiring for the specific department. They're moving engineers to this department and they think that maybe it will be basically a robotic alexa a robotic onic alexa. What do you do in addition to. You know what alexa ernie dies well. I mean they're they're already this. They i mentioned it at a at a conference with their upgrade. Their alexes devices as well. You know new models new speakers more <hes> more technology so i guess the idea is not that you don't have to you have your alexis didn't on your counter somewhere but this one will run your home and if it will have cameras and sensors wherever i guess you can video. I'm sure they'll video chat you. Alexa has a drop in feature. I think where you can call other alexes and like talk so this will probably be similar that except you won't have to be shouting across the room room necessarily or you can have it showing something in your home and there's not a lot of data yet sectors. It's not out yet but this is something they're working on and i know people are already a little squeamish rush about alexa listening to your home. Now you've got a whole thing roaming your house and recorded you just yeah. I'm just wondering why would you want it to be roaming your house unless it's cleaning at the same time. Manigault put a vacuum cleaner on it. It's broom. I don't know i i mean just just from a coverage angle. I think the initial the thing but i guess it depends on what they plan on doing with it like you want to right now. If you really want your home wired i mean this is all going to be smart home stuff right so they want your watch your home wired. You need one in your bedroom living room and i'll let your house said a business. You need the doorbell. Yeah whatever you you're not gonna shop for your bedroom if you're in the living room watching today but with the robot perhaps you wouldn't need to you could say hey robot go into the bedroom and turn on the t._v. Or something like that. Okay okay well. I mean i feel like they. They are going to if they're hiring people to specifically developed this robot. They've got to be doing doing other things in addition to you know to whatever features are offered by alexa right now. I'm trying to think of what what would it. You know what what would you need a robot to do in your house in order for you to spend money on this type of thing. I'm i'm honestly not sure besides of a global entity that is how it doesn't need to be a roman robot. I would just need a couple of speakers like a nutshell. There's benefit to the robot. The robot seems creepy are than what i envision. This could just be me when i envisioned futuristic like homes. I a i wanna call it smart homes. I able to talk to anthony computer a._i. Computer based craft computer. We just speak into the void and he's you were under. There's very physical funny. That seems a little bit different again. It could just be my by us. I guess so. I don't really i mean i. I have a room but do you have a roomba uh-huh <hes>. No i have a i don't know how do you get a while. I have you know small tiny toys like b._j. Masks yeah. Isn't it all sorts. It's a big site would get vacuumed up. You could get your kids clean up. That's the thing is like if you we have a roomba and it's great because you can program go off every night at eleven thirty pm in the new wake up with a clean a clean floor but in order for your roomba to work properly properly it has to a have a clean floor to clean and so yeah for the first couple of months ago after we got it. We were really good about making sure that our kids picked everything up so wouldn't get in the way of the room but you know well. They thought that if the roomba we came over it that it would just destroy their toys you know they would suck it up and then they wouldn't ever anymore and so they were motivated and then i think my daughter realize that was not true that it would just kinda shuffled around you know or get stuck. Gonna end soda can kind of fell off and so we if we're gonna use the room but we have to we have to have the house has to be cleaned before it can even clean which is not ideally it would be possible with the kids you know. Sometimes that's not always possible so basically our roomba is been neglected very much so this past year into. I'm wondering you know if we've got some sort of robots where we are you going to run into the same things. Is it gonna be able to navigate the average person's household or are you yeah. That's definitely your apartment. Yeah you don't have to be lifting the thing over a pile of legos because <music> our area. Whatever you kathleen bowl or you want to be able to navigate. I don't know again. This is still theoretical debuted prototype audience. We don't know what the motion ocean will be. Maybe one day these things flying little tiny flying drones and we're nowhere near that that's jet operated drones to that yeah no maybe we are or i don't know i just envision like a little flying like a golden snitch for just like hovering around you auto ready to ready to take your commands and do operate jorhat. I don't think i need that in my life. I just i really don't think i i have to have something like that. Well yeah that's true. I don't think we need it either. I'm not i don't know. Do you have an alexa oxo or google home or on your those siri <hes> we my husband regular is office of course they have syria my phone but i don't have one here in my specifically because i know my kids with my just just abuse it all the time probably tire yeah i mean i i don't have one both my mother and my mother in law have they don't use it that much i it has some features that i guess are are useful like you can tell it to turn on the t._v. Turn on turn on this on netflix affleck's. That's cool. It saves me the twenty seconds of of navigating some of those menus that are slowing annoying but the most. I don't need it. It's not part of my daily life at the same thing with this alexa. That's a robot. I guess is is a ver- now. Maybe we don't need it but i think amazon is trying to really push that. You do need a smart home and maybe maybe we'll get there. Maybe we'll be able to do things like tell you when.

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"God created ten fingers. Tinto's that's all that used to not now now only seconds old the exact time 'cause my debt already known welcome to you did what now a podcast already discussed stories and science and Tech Bank assess exactly that everyone thinks you're listening on your host Stephanie Educator in Science Aficionado and I'm Michael Programmer in Tech Guy a Stephanie just before we start I wanNA mention <hes> somebody tweeted at us. Undermine Elizabeth tweeted about we're talking about bio hacks awhile back. Yeah just said this black like Tattoo. That was pretty cool glow dark one was it a one was a U._F._O.. In under the black light that raise the U._F._O.. Like low was pretty cool. I want one. I absolutely Dr Catch you does doesn't show up in the light though or it's only only only tattoo shows the tattoo itself shows up but you won't see the glowing okay. No I just want one that only shows up at night in the dark. You pick you can pull all of us to light-colored luminescent that too. I think that might work speaking of Bio hacks remember we talked about Elon Musk a little bit in his startup company. Neural Inc shore here is gotTA BILLIONS OF COMPANIES ABC's about scientists right well. This one wants to directly linked the human brain to computers for sure yeah sounds like a great idea but anyways we need to pay attention to this because in just a couple of days July teen he's going to you host and <unk> in San Francisco. They're going to share a bit about what's been they've been working on in the past two years though so we should get some great news bytes about this yeah sure all downloading our our brains into we talked about that. Did we talk about digitized of consciousness that will point. I think so yeah I will it could help us potentially extend our lives if we don't have to worry about these silly little body things that are can potentially get disease in die sore soon for that. I'm I'm curious about yes. I'M GONNA I'll update you next time we meet but for today we're going to talk about something else a question for you Michael. You've seen Gatica right should I have you should absolutely have seen Gatica. You've never heard of this movie. I've heard of the movie. It's one of those movies like Oh. That's a movie that yeah you should probably have seen that. That's right up your alley and then I haven't that one. The what's that futuristic movie that just came out Vaca- just came out of the sequel of it like stolen future robots something draw blank now another like sci fi crazy feature music movie that I should have seen. I don't know I'll check it out there but Gada guy. I've probably seen at least ninety times just because it's the movie that every biology teacher wants to show their students you know it was made in the nineties of this is how our future could be in that you don't when you want to have a child you don't make when the old-fashioned way you go into a lab and <music>. I'm tell the doctor what features you want in your child and they do some some great biohacking and make sure that you get the perfect child with blonde hair. Blue is no diseases their tall. They're athletic no chance of heart disease. This would be your children. This is the Sims right. We do you create the baby. Y You pick the color hair. You're gonNA blow templates now. This is that you just take whatever features you want in your child I I would I would pick some. We talked about a little this a little you bet about last time when he phones listen to you whether or not you would attracts that. How would you know the unknown? What would you do if somebody was already telling you exactly what you wanted to know and needed that how you discover new things so this is this is the same thing I guess like E-e-eddie yeah because to pick the hair color the personality of my child but that how do you discover are part of the allure of having a child had a new person? Your Life is discovering what special on them you've already selected that humane aw well this is kind of the road of the movie goes down is everybody in this world is in quotation marks perfect. They don't have diseases. They don't have to deal with with many of the things that we have to deal with now. They don't have to wear glasses. They have perfect vision. There are very logic there engineer to be smart except for Anton he was conceived the old fashioned way in the back of vehicle so yeah was he conceived by perfect people as is is he already working with a genetic material. No he was not he was conceived by imperfect people so that was kind of like just getting started. I guess in his time of people would start going yeah and so when he was born they were able to look at his genetic printout and predict exactly how long he would live and there was like a ninety seven percent chance he would die by the time he was thirty of some heart disease so it's you know there's kind of this this dramatic scene where the father was going to give him his own family name in N.. Dent changed it after he saw this said no no no listening him something else you know he didn't want his imperfect child to be named after after himself and. And so of course there next child they went to the lab and ended the responsible thing a major their next child was born with perfect genetics so the rest of the movie is about how Anton overcomes everything that they told him he cannot do and he has to fake his identity because he doesn't have that Perfect D._N._A.. To get into their version of NASA which is Gatica ohka yeah surveys normally I would say not qualified because it doesn't meet all the prerequisite he wasn't selected could rebirth to be in that track kind of things him because of his prediction that he will have heart disease. They would never train him to be an astronaut if he's going to diet thirty five from some heart attack bro. He wants to be as an astronaut so anyways yes. You should definitely check out this movie anyone else out there. If you've not seen this movie you should go. I have a worksheet you can complete with. If you want to learn all the biology. The Cuban thing is you're giving me a movie to watch homework. Ed worksheets and I'll give you give you the the worksheets to do now. The thing is Gatica G._A._T._T.. A._C._A. Those the nuclear tides D._N._A.. So there's all sorts of little hidden things on the watch with biology teacher major but anyways it's been interesting. I've been showing this movie every year to my students you know for very long time and it's becoming less and less of a distant future reality. It's becoming more and more reality reality we now in so especially now that they have the the crisper technologies and are starting to do something with it to actually affect human being so we heard last fall the scientists in China China. He did some work with with H._I._V.. With a gene called tea CR five that makes people susceptible to H._i._V. until he knocked it out using crisper and so he or at least he says he he did that to the embryos of these twin girls who theoretically cannot get H._i._v.. In their lives right knows what else yeah who knows how they're susceptible now that raise it yeah I guess we're talking about this less and less futuristic begging more and more now but again this even this guy was this is the first test of this was one thing he start start trying to do seven things and hair color and who knows how they'll interact and what overlaps though Bay Yeah I mean this level. It seems great that these girls will never receive wore never get H._I._V.. However we don't know when you're messing around with G._N._A.? We don't we don't know what else is affecting in. These are two healthy embryos that he experimented on. You know there's the idea of it live if it ain't broke don't fix it right so yeah if it ain't broke don't fix it. These those embryos were not broken. There was nothing wrong with him. He tried to fix it and we'll find out at some point. I'm sure what happens to these two two girls these two girls but so when do you get to fix it though when when is when is it okay to start messing around with D._N._A.. At what level what disease you have to have in order a two to start fixing it. That's the question we're looking at now. That's going to be a huge ethical question. I mean you talk to people of various. <hes> I don't think disabled is the right word anymore but people with that are not perfect and their per what defines perfect and some people that live a little different lives they you know for whatever whatever edition they have. It alters them from the norm. A lot of these people say that this defines them this is who they are. They wouldn't fix it. If you magically big click the button fix them sell fix themselves to be more normal. Whatever your definition enormous your normal or perfect or whatever you all it they wouldn't because it's so it is who they are as a person so you start pre? Even these people existent what you know who knows what you WanNa do absolutely that brings me to our article. It's found in future ISM last week. Five couples agree eight to crisper their babies. I love that I love that verbiage. We're GONNA crisper your babies crisper. It's could acronym. It is an acronym right. It is an acronym and I can tell you what it stands for. It stands for clustered heard regularly interstates short pal Joe make repeats of D._N._A.. So this is how they use an enzyme to go in there and cut it up to two you know take out these these genes or put them back in they have to they're looking for the enzyme is looking for these pal drug sequences so it's it's kind of interesting the signs of how it works but no they're going to do this is going to happen in Russia and so <hes> scientists Dennis rubbery costs joy Richard that he wants US crisper to create some genetically engineered babies that will that will not have a chance of being death in their lives they will not they will be able to here for sure is what he is. Proposing sure isn't that that's the the normal case. Though right I see what he's doing. Is he found some parents who are deaf. They have a specific type of of genetic mutation that have caused them to become deaf in their life. The camera the parents cannot here. They've already lost their hearing so you can't really use the thing with Christopher that some people may not understand as you cannot use crisper to necessarily change your own d._N._A.. In your somatic cells your body cells league about how how many sells you have in your body. Millions of els and each of those cells has a nucleus with D._N._A.. In it that is exactly the same no matter no matter whether it's an it's a heart seller brain cell where skin skin cell. It's GonNa have the same copy of D._N._A.. So in order to in order to change your DNA your own G._N._A.. You would have to use crisper on every single cell of your body which is not happening which is why these idiots that are just like ejecting Christopher stuff into their arms. Are Just that idiots right yeah. You can't really do that but what you can do is if there's a fertilize embryo you can use crisper to change the D._N._A.. In that one on embryo that has a complete set of D._N._A.. It has a complete set of Human D._N._A.. And it's just one cell so you can use these enzymes to edit that D._N._A.. And so that's what they're doing here is he's taking the fertilize embryos of these couples else who both have this genetic disease so it is an almost. It's a guarantee that these children will be born death if these if these couples were to reproduce naturally..

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"I'm sorry Dave I'm afraid I can't do that. Scientists so preoccupied with whether or not they could create what now a podcast where we stories in science and tech the meccas ask exactly that everyone thinks we listening on your host Stephanie Educator in Science Aficionado Michael Programmer in Tech Guy. You got from today Michael took today. We're going to talk about the mirror world a wet kind of world mirror world. It's a great technology newer world. I've never heard of this before. I hadn't actually heard of it either. Basically what they need is augmented reality. Okay got it talking Matt Plus. We are talking about him on this is wired. POKEMON is very basic. This article actually does mention it doesn't mention Pokemon it says glimpses of the mural world all around us and mentioned spoke Mungo which launched a twenty sixteen it almost audible Ah-ha I get it moment as the entire world signed up to chase sees coke him on all over the park. Did you Michael I did I do. I have the POK Mon.. It's neat. I played POK MON came out. <hes> Ashen say came out because it was a Japan well before that it came to the U._S.. On reading blue for Gameboy I was a junior high school. I think in a couple of or playing it so I played it on and off over the years this I as tech guy and as sort of poking my fan I was. I was interested in from the get-go. It's not the greatest game but it's neat. You fire the camera pokemon sitting in your living room yet. We did this in two thousand sixteen. I definitely a download the APP in started looking for Pokemon doc mind but then I felt like when it came to battling. I was not prepared enough to battle. I never did win a battle so I gave up quickly yeah. It's not it's not the most investigating you're basically running around catching nothing like the the R._p._G.. Type Games at the actual a Gameboy boy game or whatever platform neuron now but so that is that's the start that's the basic setup of augmented reality which is according to this article which is a <unk> by Kevin Kelly and it comes off very this is tech guy right in Nevada technology and IT mentions none of the drawbacks under the concerns but there's a lot of interesting stuff going on so he basically cy defines this as the third grade technology going the first one the web digitize information now you go to what the P._D.. Look up anything you WANNA know anywhere and he called the second grade platform called social media basically digitizing people and you can search for anybody. That's interested anything you talk about anything. Human behavior relationships in all to the power of algorithms which is ruled by facebook and twitter nowadays nowadays <unk> basically he's calling the platform augmented reality where we're going to digitize basically everything is thought is that we literally your room will be digitized because everybody has hammers. She'll interact with everything through augmented reality through Camera Lens and and it will see everything it'll no you have three couches in your house. It will know your T._v.'s over there your walls over there and this is the first after doing things like Jack Gain Arrows on the floor instead of you looking at you. Call them up in directions on your phone. You'll just have through. You're wearing a device or whatever you'll see the hour on the road. Hey you're gonna go this way now. That sounds interesting. Yeah I mean it's got a lot of potential there. A couple of starting starter virtual augmented reality type devices one one. I mentioned is magically which is from naturally does Microsoft's the arkell actually starts off talking about Adam savage the star of mythbusters. I guess he apparently he releases a video every year favor things and one of the things he mentioned was magic leap device ace. Is it what what caught him was. It's very gimmick. It's just like go. You're basically seeing the image of Pokemon or whatever would got him like a addicted to or other reality basically what he bought it and was when he turned it on here whale and he's looking around you can see the whale whereas as well he was expected expected to be oakmont. There's a whale right here and he turns into looks at his wit looks at his window and they're the whale swims by 'cause the device correctly mapped that hey that's a window. That's a portal to the outside. If you're gonNA see something like this you would see it at the window so that was like the next stap news like Oh. That's cool things you can do. Yeah I feel like the uses for this or pretty much endless. I mean as a teacher my brain goes to what can I use this for in the classroom. What kind of lesson could you create with augmented reality? That would really bring alive. Pipe to the students whatever it is you're teaching them whereas before they would just be looking at books or maybe on T._v.. But if they could use augmented reality to actually you know if they're doing a dissection if they could have the the dissection right in in front of them it'd be three day you'll be able to see you wouldn't even have to actually have you know the students dissect chicken or whatever yeah you'd be up to this lens they were literally be looking at it and they wouldn't actually have to move their hands. It would be looking at in the desk and I would see the hand's doing things it's supposed to do and sure medical students wouldn't have to have a real life cadaver necessarily they can use it augmented reality and you could start doing these things much much earlier earlier because a lot of these things are cost prohibitive to have classroom to get them slow so yeah you had this technology. There's a ton of things you can do in education to help students. I feel like yes. They mentioned is can actually fight in this article now because it's like seventeen as long basically <hes> he was he was watching this discussion. I it was watching a movie or something or a book or wherever we're talking about this walk in. I think we'll Gary Mri that in the in the book characters going through. Do you know whatever whatever the was about. He was in this road. mcgarity was talking about these he was going to character was going to and interactions and things he was seeing and so this guy talked to the the authorities is hey cool that young. I spent a year over in Bulgaria area. When were you there is there I was looking at it on Google earth like that's the Google Earth is the for is the the static form of it? You know you can load up the maps. Click on your house and you look. I could see you know three different pictures that they take it of ass over the years. I could walk down the street. It's very limited now but as we further digitized this you know you could take that walk you could you could come along on my walk with me right. Basically I could talk on just like we are now at. I could be walking down the street and you could be walking along with me. I mean that's pretty cool. I mean so you get these. You would have to wear this device somehow these glasses or would they be great yeah. It's it's Sawyer you can use through your phone and you need a lens. You need a lot yeah so really by you have to have a constant screen. You'd have to have a glass or this. Magic Lens magically but maybe that's a future we talk about. Maybe everybody having a chip in plan to the arm one day while maybe maybe just everybody will wear glasses yeah with the technology is there people will buy it if they could put a chip implant of this augmented reality Lens than I'm sure they would want that some people would in they just use it all the time right. I mean it has to have he uses Google last thing that sort of evil made fun of as like a gimmicky tech thing. Maybe it was before its time there wasn't a lot of youth squirt as we digitize the stuff and that's the idea as he's talking about <unk> digitizing everything around you this once people start buying wearing it. It will map your location. It will map just like Google Earth Google maps now. They drive around the cars. I'm apple the streets of your walking around your house. Now can map your house and those who your rooms are knows where your windows are. That's where we maybe we get into some of the the more concerning aspects of it as we digitize nowhere where your child's bed is in the room what time you walk in there every night and things like that <hes> well speaking of kids would you would you let your kids use technology. In what age should they be before they start because you know for a two year old. Their brains are still forming around yeah. I can see well. I could see that messing with kids. It early like an augmented but I don't I don't I tell you keep this device on a two year old anyway. Let's all world if they if they cause if they're gonNA make adult versions of this. They're gonNA make kid versions because some people will buy it. The market has their you know and especially thinking about the idea of education if a kid could be what could be could be on a walk and the forest and their glasses are telling them Oh. This is a live oak tree. This is a pecan tree. You know they're learning while they're walking. I think a lot of people would wanna take advantage of that. By what kind of effects would that have on your brain as you're growing up with this augmented reality drew especially young as you start if you will wall technology doesn't I think about I mean every T._v.'s going to Rochester Hain. Don't do this too long and now all I have Colombo's in IPAD so I could make kids. Don't understand the concept of just now. She's almost five. She's still doesn't really understand. The commercials happen and you can watch live and tweak two minutes of art happens. Yes I tell don't we don't have that show. I don't know how to get that show. Doesn't we don't have that episode right now. It's just average wants to watch them that. Okay let me just put it on for you and she gets exactly what you want. Their world of course rarely like what do you mean you didn't used to be able to go to school and actually like see trees. We're talking about or tailored to tally actually walk through Rome. Listen to everybody talking it to understand the dioxide that that'd be huge just immersion of language and I I was really Italian and you know you have one teachers really presumably pretty we go to pronouncing things but actually hear it in his native form in the actual interacts rather teacher saying I would like to buy a ticket actually going to train station in Rome or Paris and and actually hearing that interaction absolutely I mean I think like I said I think has some really great uses by yeah. I think it can also really play with our brains especially if we started to early yeah and then your your privacy things. How are you going to be able to digitize any of these experiences? What sort of you know what could you do and then record and allow somebody else to live? Somebody would able to be able to roughly relive experience. You went to the ball game <hes> had maybe not be physicals feedback of eating a hotdog necessarily where maybe can only you only need a couple of things you'd actually eat hot dog at the same time or if you will feel we talked about the surgery if you could get meant the glasses with a pair of gloves that have the haptic feedback of so that you can feel the cut as you make it and things like that I want to.

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"To you did what now a podcast stories and science sci tech the make us asked exactly that everyone thanks for listening in your host Stephanie Educator in Science Aficionado got Michael Programmer Kokai so Stephanie. What have you got I today yeah so do you know they went ahead incur- drug addiction? Oh yeah great that's good news. It is great news well. We may not be all the way there yet but we have some promising very promising studies that are happening right now so this happened recently in China and Shanghai specifically if you're a drug user Zor in China it's much it can be much more difficult for you to get a job and to be involved in society. There's a lot of really really strict rules when you are caught with drugs that will use your job in when you first to go into Rehab so they've started investing a lot of money into figuring out how they can how can curates and even in the U._S. alone. You know they did a study in two thousand seventeen more than five hundred thousand thousand Americans died in drug overdoses just in that decade so it's definitely a big deal definitely something that they want to look into but but how you curate <unk> addiction addiction. It's not just drug addiction. I got you can be anything it really right so break his brain chemistry stuff they rewiring us yeah so it said they're gonNA put a implant in your brain and yeah it's got electrical impulses. That's GonNa Control Your feeling so this is called deep brain stimulation. It's not necessarily a new thing they've been you get a dog with a shock collar and it goes too far you shock it and it stops right except this one goes directly into your brain into very specific traffic parts of your brain depending on what they're trying to treat and so started they've been using these they've been using these to treat Parkinson's disease. They've been testing with how to use it to treat Alzheimer's to stimulate certain parts of the brain to increase ability to plan Dave even use it to see if it can cure depression okay so this time what they did is they. They put it into a known drug user his drug use of choice with methamphetamine. They call him patient number one sure so. What do they give chip? I'm basically what decides when he gets shocked yeah so they can do it a lot of different ways it can be patient controlled or they can program it so that it's a continuous shocking throughout the day you know twenty four hours a day depending on what their particular patient needs for patient number one he he was not a drug user until two thousand eleven yet some friends introducing drugs to him and said it'll be fine you try at one time and then of course he lever quickly got addicted as people do. He lost everything he lost his family. He gambled muscle. It's money is Mike divorced him and so he got an ultimatum either you need to go to we have or you need to have this brain surgery Hansel. He chose you look with the surgery sounds good. I heard bad things by Rehab. It doesn't sound like a pleasurable experience yeah that was kind of what he said he said well. He said he'd like to try the surgery because he said without the surgery. He's definitely not going to a to get his life back on track. He did not have a lot of faith in the rehab centers if they have their so this up in October must October while he was awake during the surgery I guess I'm not sure what they wanted to keep him awake but they went ahead and do they drilled into a school and threatened to electrodes down to his nucleus at accumulates Desi that right nucleus convince shore yes that right okay so apparently it's a small structure section the base of the four brain and that's where scientists think there is a it's been implicated in addiction that particular part of the brain and so that's what they're stimulating with electricity electrical emphasis that we sure that this just isn't just a front Sanyo. If you get addicted to drop so we're going to keep you awake. drillings your brain because that sounds like a reasonable deterrent <unk> itself. That's what I thought to. I'm like <hes> yeah. Let's let us show this to our middle school. Students of it can get on drugs. This is what will happen to you know Yep so the same day they actually connected those electrodes to a battery pack that they actually put underneath the skin in your chest of they actually did what him asleep for that surgery. What are the? The ARC reactor in his chest towers. There's definitely be a marble bureau origin story share well yeah. What else can they do with these electrical impulses right now? They're just using them to treat symptoms right but maybe once this technology is more hashed out can be used in the hance symptoms like enhanced personality traits that have a blog also so how does it work. Is it measuring the levels of methamphetamine or just. It's like shocking. Can you every once in a while to Sorta at down some sort of addiction hormone in your body. What what is it actually accomplishing yeah so depending on what type of drug you're using? It's the drug is going to be nearing our blocking a neurotransmitter mirror. That's in your brain in an when you get addicted. It's because you're not getting enough of that feeling that that neurotransmitter helps you feel so if you can mimic that with electricity than your brain doesn't necessarily have that addiction addiction for your drug of choice so this isn't really curious addiction so much as it's removing. This is removing the stem. It's disconnecting a stimulus in the pleasure. You'RE GONNA pleasure anyway with without the drugs here. Don't don't crave the drug itself because you already experienced a pleasure in other ways is that what's happening yeah. I guess so you're you are replacing the drug with the electricity. Okay so as long as you are okay with getting shocked the <unk>. You are shared. Yes it's not UNSEE. That's that's kind of thing. It's not necessarily a cure. It's more just abandoned you know as long as you're wearing this implants than you will be. Theoretically you will not have the drive to go. Use Your drug of choice focusing ideas electrical stimulus in your directly in your brain via whatever is less damaging the overall health than taking math whether or not it's high quality blue Mathur not right so that's the theory anyways for this patient Ye. He does say that <hes> six months later he is still off drugs. His skin has cleared. He doesn't have that blotchy meth face anymore. More you did put on twenty pounds so this is not a weight loss treatment apparently unless you're addicted to food and then that's yeah. Can you put the electrode in a different part of your brain controls hunger very not that you starve to death but well whoops. I forgot this is this is Gamer Syndrome. I forgot to eat for three days. I was and you could control when to turn off the impulses in turn them potentially wrote down so yeah. He says that he his friends got back in touch with him and he refused drums and he is experiencing you know he says that this device has in Assam <unk> astonishingly positive effects on he says it's pretty magical says it adjusts to make you happy in your happy to making nervous listen. You're nervous so it doesn't controls your happiness anger grief enjoy which I don't know exactly how it does that necessarily. That's not a okay so let's just outsource our emotions to the government. That's fun well. That's kind of what I thought you like. Okay who has the button to this device who can control it because it has to be set up by the doctor right to be programmed by the doctor. They're in China right so this is not exactly a free will free society well ways right and that's so gay. Let's kind of the problem here is that it is it is a difficult thing to study or gay. How many how many patients are you gonna get that want this implant into their brain over over going to rea- yeah and you're going to get them from a sample of people that you know? Maybe don't have as much choice through whether it's their choice or not prisoners or if you're only the only twice. Is this brain surgery or go to prison than there's some concern with informed consent Yeah Dukla so oh by the way did I mention that there are wrists with the surgery. Well sure you're drilling into somebody's brain and putting electrodes in there I I was pretty sure there. We're going to be re this. What are they worried about? In that term heart failure that sort of thing well you could have a brain hemorrhage die. That's one option. I'm not sure Yup so there's a small chance for brain brain hemorrhaging it could change your personality in some way by giving be given that they seem to be control your emotions that it will have a little bit of effect on your personality whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is yet to be study. It could rive on how you would know you're going from just going from being addicted to drugs to not being addicted to drugs. I assume changes your personality will share. Maybe that's a good thing though but. Entra it could cost you have seizures or some sort of infection. You know if you're putting these electrodes into your brain. There is a possibility that they get infected overtime once you put in there. It's not like you can just pull it out. It's it's there here unless you have surgery to remove it to your inserting a foreign object into your brain. It's going to have to stay there for as long as you want this effect of the treatments and yeah of course it can cause some sort of like stroke work hard difficulty. You know if you if you're when anytime you play around with what's going on in the brain you never know what kind of side effect it's GonNa cost to the rest of your body right exactly who knows it'd be missed missed by a fraction convention center are shocking to different part of the brain as well those what's going to happen rains so I wonder if this guy could get an m._r._i.. Or anything like that like you've got meddling presumably meadow I guess could be positive some sort but batteries stories. You're all this stuff is audio xrays memorize and metal detectors. Esther stuff is probably GONNA be confusing released a first before people become aware of some like this yeah absolutely yeah in. It's it's just a hard thing the sunny you know because <hes> we don't know everything about the brain yet. We know some things but we it's. It's still for the large part unsteady territory. That's why we're going to be patient patient to or a patient three or what's is going on there yeah so they're definitely gonNA open it up for more people to try and there's action. There's actually <hes> the F._D._A.. Approved a small separate trial for that's going to happen in the United States at West Virginia University Rockefeller aren't Neuroscience Institute. They're hoping to started in June and <hes> yeah so they're going to try and see if they can use deep brain stimulation to treat opioid use but joy yeah but you know again. The problem is how many people do we need in the study in order for it to be proven or unproven. You know it's very expensive to very expensive surgery somewhere up to twenty five thousand dollars or more so it's not like you can in do this on a mess Kale yet. You would be lucky if I would think we need a lot of people example for something like this different drugs different you know demeanor is to begin with you haven't worked as a lot. He knew the study in ten people can do you have a hundred people. A thousand people like how many times you have to repeat the study in order for it to the approved for mainstream use. Let's say you probably won't get at least one hundred occurred per drug per specific type of drought for opioid. You probably one hundred and even even that I mean you've got quite a bit of things you'd still be concerned about in terms of selection bias and are they you know the the people that sign up for the study they already in their mind decided they. They're going to eat this addiction versus being a slave to it like there's some there's some bias in terms of WHO's decidedly out bring it brain surgery. That's the way I've got to get over this. I'm ready to get over this. I'm going to take that first. Step at maybe that's part of it and you take out like whether or not they would've been it being the addiction on their own or in other ways without something as evasive as you know cutting a brain open sure well in there. It's kind of like in the early two thousand there was another there was another surgery they were offering in China that was going to cure bring <hes> drug addiction and that was brain meaning and so a lot the families pay thousands of dollars for the surgery that was unproven but it was promised to cure their addictions and in this case weren't implanting. They weren't putting an implant. They were basically just burning off parts parts of the brain well. Let's even better so the idea was that if you could burn off the part of the brain that control your addiction than you wouldn't be addicted anymore but even less interested into the brain back that yeah yeah there were tons of patients. They were left with mood disorders las memories altered sex drive's it was a big best and so in two thousand four they put a halt to that they couldn't do debris leaning anymore <hes> and so this kind of reminds me of that in a little bit sort of you know they're gonna go ahead. They'RE GONNA try. They're going to see if it works. Some people might be harmed. Some people might be helped. You really don't know until you try but the good thing with these implants is that they are theoretically a reversible so you can take it out if you want to whereas if you were just killing the brain cells than that's it..

"michael programmer" Discussed on You Did What Now?

"Hello and welcome to you did what now a podcast where we discussed stories and sci tech that make us exactly that and your host ethnic former biology teacher in science aficionado and Michael Programmer and tech guy this first episode just a filler episode to prime feed so to speak so he can get the R._S._S. up and running. Make sure it's going to facebook twitter workout the bugs we've got a couple episodes or a record or ready recorded. Don't get self driving cars biohacking and a whole lot more so stay tuned for. That Stephanie what what sort of things you thinking about regarding yeah so of course as a teacher I love all science. I love to follow what scientists are doing. I like to be able to communicate that to students and to my friends sometimes they <hes> <hes> sometimes they don't WanNa hear everything that's going on in the world of science because it can frankly be quite frightening <hes> but I think it's important to keep yourself in the loop know what's going on know what to expect <hes> so. So that's kind of what I'm hoping to do just talk about what are some things going on right now that people should be aware of for the next upcoming years it was a lot of there's a lot of crazy science stuff going out there for shore noticing yeah yeah in biology chemistry but also yeah in the world of technology and I'm glad that <hes> you know partnering up with you. I think is going to be really great so we can kind of cover both fields that I'm not interested science as well but I as. has a programmer. I'm always dealing with the tech in all sorts of drones and all the crazy crazy. Things people are trying to develop these days A._I.. Artificial intelligence self driving cars. I'm very interested in self driving cars. I haven't feeling that will be a theme automation self-driving cars flying cars. I've got a been have my flying car article that we might talk about next week. We frost not next week in the podcast necessarily sure US really.
