What You Need to Know About the DOJ's Cryptocurrency Enforcement Framework
"Last week Attorney General William Bar announced the publication by the Department of Justice of cryptocurrency enforcement framework what is in the framework and how will it be used? Does it change anything about the way law enforcement has been going after crimes involving cryptocurrency? Well I don't rule that it changes anything, but it is very significant in another away a number of ways. So first of all, the cryptocurrency enforcement framework is a seventy plus page document issued by DOJ on specifically by the Attorney General Cyber Digital Task Force a week ago today on October Eighth and it is a self described comprehensive overview of the emerging threats and enforcement challenges associated with the increasing prevalence and use of currency. To details, relationships that the Department of Justice has built with regulatory enforcement partners both within the US government and around the world and then outlines departments, response strategies and for my purposes. I personally find the last part of where the framework talks about how the department has responded to crypto currency the most interesting. And so in general, what are the main takeaways in terms of the significance of the Attorney General Publishing Document? Well I while I think just the fact that the Attorney General Department of Justice has published this document is itself significant? It shows that Crypto is something that DOJ's focusing on and also perhaps even more important that DOJ wants the world to know that Crypto is something that it's focused on. I pull a couple of about key takeaways from the framework First of all DOJ seems to be still somewhat skeptical of Crypto So in the first part of the framework there's a section on legitimate uses crypto, which runs about a few paragraphs, and then there's a section that is titled Illegitimate, uses which runs to more than eleven pages And if you look closely at the legitimate uses section. It's careful not to come out and actually say that there are any legitimate uses at all. It uses language like in here on quoting Laura a cryptocurrency advocates maintain that a decentralized distributed and secure cryptocurrency holds great promise for legitimate use proponents cryptocurrency contend that by eliminating the need for financial intermediaries to validate and facilitate transactions. CRYPTOCURRENCY has the potential to minimize transaction costs and to reduce corruption and fraud. Some advocates claim that crypto currency may in the future facilitate micro payments. Others believe that the privacy associated with crypto currency through raising significant challenges for law enforcement though raising significant challenges for law enforcement can have valid and beneficial uses of reading between the lines. I think You can detect a certain amount of skepticism about crypto even though it's not nearly as new as it was at one time. So, when it comes to the DOJ, what are the main crimes that they're looking at when it comes to cryptocurrency? Well the first part of the report or the framework actually lays out. Three categories of crime. So one is the use of Crypto as he man or to siltation for lissette activities. So for example, on taking Crypto as payment for illegal drugs over legal weapons or child pornography or using crypto to engage in terrorist financing that's category one according to the framework. The second category according to the framework is using crypto to engage in money laundering or hide assets from tax authorities in the third, it's crimes against the crypto marketplace itself like hacking exchanges. And there's a section of the framework that goes through all of the laws that DOJ can use to counter this kind of activity and they're more or less. What you would expect the fraud statutes. The Money Laundering Statutes the terrorist
Creating AI Products That Are Easy for Non-Technical Users with Bryton Shang
"So, Brighton a wanted to talk to you about your journey of building an AI chronic for specific market. You guys are any aqua cultures face using computer vision to monitor the health and size in growth of gigantic fish farms. Very, very big important industry also not industry at least what strikes my mind as as one that's eager for AI zone sake. You know we look at financial services and They might just like the sizzle obey but I, imagine a fish farmer doesn't they just want something practical. You got to go through this journey of finding a fit for a and for hardware in a market that really just wants an outcome topless about what that journey was like, what made the idea click, and then we have to go through to build a product that would be a business. So I I. Think Certainly. A are not like we really started with the customer need and and so clearly, there was a need for being able to Count Sea lice on the fish and as well as understand way in grows. And so whether that could be solved by air not that s really allows the. Clear from Farber, tops the number of farmers than an consistently said that that was number one problem. Solving that I mean there has been companies have tried to work on it using. More traditional computer vision or via other techniques and and really the idea being that I, mean there's been technologies developed economy striving and other industries social media that have developed deep learning and other AI models that have been really successful at identifying objects in images and doing three D. reconstruction, and so for for that was inspiration for us to be able to apply similar technology to. Get. Started is a bit challenging. So of course, weakness gather training data and this is something where basically taken lots of pictures of fish from being able to annotate those images or see lies and even like determining the way to the finish this is not something you can determine from an image actually after go physically. Way Them in war and so generally challenges around the data collection aspect but. Really I. Mean I think the company it's I ended saying that it's likely companies is sort of like raisin bread like company is like, Brad. In is just like the reasons that make it special. But the end of the day we're still solving for that cornea farmer one, hundred percent I mean if you could girl billion dollar firm with not live ai more power to you, you know what? I. Mean, we just happen to have a focus on a I use cases here on the show, but we certainly don't doubt toy ai for its own sake, but it sounded like the problem was suited and so bought a being right. You're not going to be able to build software that takes a look at fish. You know the old school methods of computer vision of looking at lines or something like the the. Videos of how computer vision you storage just never going to skin the cat you gotta use them Al and the kickoff for the company which you mentioned in our previous interview was actually regulation which I found to be interesting. So there was a regulatory act in Norway and I don't know if this district place in other countries are just in Norway where they had to count the leisa certain amount on their fishy certain amount of sampling. It seemed like that was actually the catalyst almost to the business is that safe to say? I would say, so I mean, certainly, there is businesses economic incentives in the also economic driver for them to manage sea lice because something that does Chech- environmental concerns as well as food safety concerns. It is something that is intimately tied with regulation and and in this case pretty much every country that grows fish in the ocean has some form of regulation of parasites. That's that's interesting. I think obviously most of our listeners are not familiar with aquaculture space. But curious to see that this regulation there you know when I think about the sectors where we might do a little bit more coverage or certainly where we do our market research work like financial services when someone is selling a document search and discovery software very rarely saying, well, you know here's how this can tangibly improve efficiencies. People try to find these of documents for mortgages, tons of documents for insurance underwriting. There are a lot of time using the argument of, Hey, you're really gonNA get regulatory slapped if. You don't I dunno change these kind of library bore clauses now that that legality has gone away or if you don't remove client data on their requests and if you can't find all of it, that's still your problem and this is going to help you. So regulation in the fear of those consequences honestly is something that financial services vendors lean on especially when they don't have other ways of measuring our why curious to see that it's also potentially a lever to kick off a need for technological innovation your space to this is something that's me people kind of have to adapt if you will. Absolutely. One of the differences though for we're talking about kind of. Companies. In some of the challenges we through is not just the farmers understanding that it's not the not like a thermometer like you drop it in it tells you the. In Data Adler. I I'm and. How many do you buy and it just gets better over time present get worse over time but fundamentally does work differently and so there is. But that's just sort of like the challenge of the system. So to speak is that like it's it's all mechanical system it is a dynamic system. That's the challenge for Mel, across the board in these living breathing systems or somebody's got to of keep tabs on things. Now, I presume now some markets. Well aware of this plenty vendors that we've had on mean from data data robots of a Yazdi's to Lord knows how many are essentially providing folks with tools where their in house data scientists are also going to be able to use these tools to get a job done maybe detect money laundering maybe detect cancerous tumor is on patients or whatever the case may be. These are tools for in house technical folks, and maybe in house non, technical folks, there are some vendor companies try to keep as much or all love the actual data collection processing in kind of that, we call the heavy lifting of. Keeping a living breathing in else's running in house in the vendor then they're only giving the user more or less a SASS products. Now, of course, it's more complicated than that. But for the user, it's about that simple. My guess in aquaculture is the in house data science staff is rather limited at these firms. You're essentially having to do the latter company where you're giving them. Here's the hardware plug it in. Here's the dashboard you're gonNA look at it but just know Mr buyer that there's a lot going on in terms of labeling in upkeeping heavy lifting that you don't have to do that we're handling. I presume that's what you've had to to bill. That's right and I mean for us the machine learning AI component is more. It's more like a cafe thing rather than for for them they prefer. Likely it's more important for us to be off, Walter. Company delivering Wade Send House in Yemen sorta not exposing so much of like the ID. Yeah Yeah.

It was an interesting interview that you had, I think covering a lot of topics, but was understandably a lot of focus on money laundering, given that the has a new remit to look after this topic, and try to clamp down on some of the abuses that we've seen of late tell us what you found most interesting by what he has to say. Yeah. That's right. So we speak to Jose Manuel Campo last week in Paris. It was his first interview that he's done since taking up the reins from Andrea, Andrea, and the first of the has done in his new home of Paris. Miss dicamba, I think was made keen to dispel some misconceptions about what exactly the EPA's mandate is around money laundering say, you'll remember that last year was very much dominated by a number of money laundering headlines, from various countries around the EU multi, Latvia. But the biggest of which was, of course, dunce combines two hundred billion euro problem. Now, what Mr. camper is saying, is that the response? Which was to give the ABA these new powers is that she quite a narrow role that the EIB has it's very much a coordinating role.
