Google Gets Proactive About Android Security
"Google. Is going to be getting even more proactive about android security. we know that Goule runs their own bug bounty program for Android APPs which are those listed in the play store. You know the ones that they're curing that program is called. Google. Play security reward program not a very catchy abbreviation GP SRP Google play security wrote were our program. And through that program independent security researchers are rewarded for locating and responsibly reporting bugs they find in play store android APPS. So Google is in assess in essence paying for bugs, submissions on behalf of its platform APPs publishers. But. One limitation of the GP as our P. is that it's restricted to major apps having more than one hundred, million users. So I guess Google is saying look guys. You know there's there's a lot of APPs there and don't Gov. Finding some bugging an obscure APP that twelve people have downloaded the while we would like to have that fixed. We're not that concerned about it. You're not going to get a bounty for that. So the GPS RPI a hundred million users minimum. But.

Robotic Process Automation with Antti Karjalainen
"How do I describe RPI, task in robot corporate. How do you define an opiate task? You set up a new project let's say you're using the lab you create new project. You'll import a few libraries depending on what kind of tasks you WANNA do a walk on technology she want to interact. And Right Staw Staw tasks, Star Star, and then start writing instructions. you might use a building keyboards. Some library keeps that you have available all you might define your own keyboards. So let's say you start with open. Browser. Browser then you start defining, you'll building Keyword Logan to knit. And then goes on from there that keyboard should then probably piping new RL heavy gate lot island do some logging tasks. That might lead you to use volt, which is in the cloud. Not Cloud Service that provides you secure storage, drove us a credentials and you'll use another library to access the walt and so forth. That's Kinda, the basic process can you give a few more examples of tasks? That so many different tasks usually say that kind of snowflakes each company. Each user has their own particular need. In one company actually was company that had done the box boxing in the question they. They used. To automate the process of doing on last talk purchases. In Japanese websites. That was a good use case I think and. So kind of the typical. Financial Institution, use cases that you could imagine. That let's say you need to update a lot of customer. Once an and people are calling in on the phone and you know updating, let's say their phone number for your records. you might use. To navigate through the internal applications that you useful customer Carson and go through multiple locations. Wayne opted the information. That's one of use schedule is saw and it was actually Danica. So great volume, the bank that it said that they saved. What it was like seven years of customer waiting time on the phone by automating the process. Very impressive. In when a task is processing in it fails in the middle. What happens Yeah. So typically you probably want to retry. So just get the input that you had. Andrey retried if that's how you configure it. You probably want to notify somebody so you'll send out an email. Alerts through some other service desk. Application. Depending on obviously kind of depends on why failure happened. So was it a business exception? So unit the application that you've automating did something wrong or and. Your data was incomplete that she used something like that. So that kind of guides you if it's just flat out failure, just exception on court. Then you probably want to. Get the developer to look at it. Does something happen like when the I of the website changes that can sometimes mess things up or do most of these sites tend to keep their you is static enough that your tasks don't go out of date. Yeah. So that's a bit of author that. So you WANNA try to use locate us that almost stable. So if you if you use like absolute expand references, those might get messed up pretty easily if you use like low element ID more stable. So typically. Yes, sure. I mean sites changing us an issue for you can do something such developer to make it more robust but ultimately, if site and some changing completely, there's nothing that you can do about it. Typically I tell people that you know if you have the option to use an API instead course that's more stable or west goal where you have the most stable route. Tell me more about the libraries that are built into Robo Corp.. Yes we are we actually developing fairly large library that we call the. Framework. And consists of. Of you'll basic tool kit essentially as you need us an opiate developing. So. You'll have things for the browser things folk desktop applications, immigration you'll have. integrations with all the major cloud platforms, aws azure. Google cloud. And probably forget like eighty percent of the stuff but we we keep adding to it. Multiple Times a week become a new release that adds new functionality to be a framework right now at the moment. But Yeah I some multitude of different kinds of Kiva statute categorized by different technology domains. there. Are Lots of API's out there for machine learning. Tell me about how machine learning API's can be used with Robocall Corp Yeah. So the industry term for that is intelligent automation and you to be his call up intelligent does as soon as you who into some machine learning API. But sure I mean the kind of the basic I think most frequent use cases to do something like send a document to aws extract or other similar Google Cloud Vision Api you have a pdf in moist than want extra someday to out of it. You can easily use cloud services to do that for you if you don't want to try to do it locally that's I, think the most common use guests that I see all the time. When an ARP task gets spun up, what is actually happening on Robot Corp? Yes. So when a not B task at Spun Up. If you look at the architecture that we have with the cloud platform. And we have what we call the work us the workers, essentially an application that's installed in the target system. So he can be on your laptop, it can be on a virtual machine on. or it can leave inside a container that we can hopefully. So depending on where the work is. Say That the workers is on my laptop. What happens is that the cloud will send a package of code and some instructions to the work. The work will get the package on Pakistan and then initiate a fresh condign women fall by the libraries that. You have inside your robust cold, and then it'll stop fresh every time to make sure that you don't have any side effects from previous executions and then when you environment done, he'll execute the task stream. The console tries to cloud account, and then when don is Kinda you're execution Audifax you might have produced some documents or you at least have a file stream those to the cloud and report the results of the execution. So a lot of the stuff that we provide is really the east convenience of. You know you WANNA run by Tom. based. For a frame of coordination. Good just install one APP in the Environment Logan and you're good to go. You're all set. You'll have a stable execution environment each time and is pretty fast to. And what are you using under the hood to orchestrate these tasks? So, the orchestration service on our cloud is we are working actually mostly several s so it's on aws is pretty. This know like we are not using any the ready project to set up the orchestration scheduling. Those we do it ourselves. And then it's a fast growing platform of different features so. So he's one of the call pieces that we develop. We'll tell you more about that the service orchestration stuff like how much can you offload? What kind of leverage do you get by going server less? What does that look like? So we started developing that early twenty nineteen and I doubt time we made the decision to kind of go s cutting edge that we could because we have dealt with unity. So might be be of engineering just made the decision out. If you don't have the host anything sales, we won't do it. Then I might have a few service here and there, but most is hundred percents less and the idea is that we should be able to scale up pretty nicely with that decision. Obviously you're. GonNa always have some some issues hand but for the most part, we think that that will allow us to. Maintain certain level of service as we. Continue to grow and scale and and really some of these processes are pretty business critical company. So we need to be careful with operations. Tell me more just want to know more by your infrastructure in like how are using lambda are there any other service services that you'd like to discuss? is typical host, but really I'm not too deep into architects are close to its basic like `scuse Dynamo DB, Lambda all around US plan for monitoring data dog as well I. Think. Yeah It's a complex and growing piece of software.
Breaking Down Bracketology
"I do WanNa flip the page to Rica's point some teams. That have worked very hard to get to this point. We've got eleven teams. Charlie that have punched their ticket so far to go dancing any surprises for you in the ache you I think we have one out. West correct so In the last couple of days of the West Coast Conference Tournament Portland is your winner. And they will now go to the tournament. they upset didn't zag in the semifinals and they will catch a little bit of. Portland's game yesterday in the championship when I flew into Vegas and they're upset of of Gonzaga disrupted. That's the surprise. It's SORTA disrupted the bubble a little bit because when you when you take it to my Portland who was not going to make it as an at large but Gonzaga certainly is well now the WC goes from having one team in the field to two teams in the field. Well he can only still sixty four teams so someone has to come out of the field to accommodate Portland's entrance and that affects the at large teams on the bubble and in the case of my bracket that not Boston College. Back out of the field. Who just a day earlier had slid into the field because there was another loss by someone else so everything with this in the championship weeks at circumstances everything affects something else because it's a numbers game. It's a sixty fourteen field no matter how you slice it so going forward and these next few days. We've got some other tournaments that could affect that in the same way and I mentioned this going back a week or so ago that their watch out for the bids steelers because there are certain mid majors that we know we're going to be in the field. They've earned the right to be in. The field is at large teams if they don't also go in there if they don't go in AH automatic qualifiers by winning their tournament. Well then that's an extra team that we didn't account for and brackets and that's an extra team now that the committee has to put into the field. That's one less team that can make it from some of these bubble team. So yeah the the big upset so far has been in the West Coast Conference in Gonzaga. Not Winning it and we've got some more to look forward to. The MAC happens to be one of those tournaments where there's not going to be. Any fans will central Michigan won the league pretty decisively. This year is a top twenty. Rpi team and most assuredly will make the field but now that tournament played before no one could be one of those that affects how the bubble teams go to central Michigan. Does it also come on? Come out on top in the tournament So that's that's certainly one for fans to watch as we go forward and you're GONNA have to watch it on TV because you're not gonna be able to buy it you're watching on TV though you will hear my voice. I'm on the call on Saturday for the championship. And the more reason to tune in now on the game and you can't get into the arena so the ratings should be sky high. Now it's via going okay. So I want to over to the big twelve. Charlie would where I know actually had a chance to call some big twelve games this year and I know. Tcu In particular was a team that was really making a push. I believe there in the field as it stands right now but I was state actually Jones. Who's a certified buck gator? They upset Baylor over the weekend which was a huge deal. I did a double take when I got the alert. Baylor is bailer their legitimacy. It probably doesn't change anything for them. But what does it do for Iowa State? Well I always stayed. I had as a tendency leading into that game and and it pushed him to a nine. And what that does is it's security. It's cushion because of the ten seed. Maybe the committee views them a little differently. Not Quite not quite at that level so that he's talking about eleven seed. Well that's a vulnerable team to some of the upset potential. We just talked about so what that win for Iowa State. I think is put to rest any question that they'd be in the field although I think there was a big one anyway but it but it certainly nails it down and they no longer would have. I don't think any anxious moments watching the selection show on Monday Now it's just GonNa be a matter of where do they go? And whom do they play? But I think that's what did for for I would say for sure and it would what it did do for. Baylor though while not it's not gonNA knock him out of a one seed it. Does maybe raise some questions. I personally didn't think that there was anything to worry about with. Frankly there weren't a lot of flaws there but the big twelve not not one of the better leagues in the country this year of the power. Five Leagues I think it's probably fifth and they haven't been severely tested in a while and I always say certainly did that and the it might raise some question marks about Baylor going forward. I think they can answer any of those questions in the big twelve tournament because I was sneaking suspicion. They're going to come out with a little extra in that game and it could be ugly for the other. Big Twelve teams In the big twelve tournament but that said it does it. It shows little vulnerability that I didn't think Baylor had and that makes it a little more intrigued when we get to the tournament. Time itself I agree with you one hundred percent. I know look at the box. Were trying to figure out what the deal was. And nothing really was like crazy glaring. But I do think you're right. I know a ton of folks are going to be studying that tape to see what I was able to do right well that was able to watch some of that game and when I did was really slow the Temple. They hope to threes in the second half. They made more threes than they made. Twos in the game and the believer and it was and it was so slow paced and Baylor never found a rhythm that they they say clog everything inside the Lauren Cox had almost no room to move it. Kinda dared the Baylor shooters to shoot and they just had one of those games where they weren't making shots so maybe at least down a blueprint for some other teams as to how to at least approach Valer Ago You mentioned as an example Yukon being a number two seed and I know over the past few years you have seen to have had all these regional conferences in such a favorable area. I think at the Albany region that they mostly have been seated but this year they would be projected number two in the Portland region and I think as much as we talk about Yukon not being the same Yukon is as pass. There's still a very good basketball team. Won thirty nine. Oh in their conference over these last few years in the American and I think that having them with the possibility of travel really makes this team look a little different because they aren't the same team as years pass. Tell us a little bit about how that could affect their performance. Assuming they make the sweet sixteen you're right and Seven out of the last eight years. They've either played in Albany. Bridge for for Kingston Rhode Island. So they they have not had to get on an airplane until the final four in seven out of those those eight years. But let's let's be honest earned it ju- every one of those years with the possible exception of last year because they were the best team in the country in those years too so and when when cities bid for these regionals it just so happened that that all those years those particular low cows bid and got regionals to be able to host. And you can't happen to be close so this year. Those regionals are don't exist. There is no Albany. There is no Kingston. There is no bridgeport and no matter what was going to have to get on an airplane. And you're right. I think it will look a little bit. Different seeing a yukon in a faraway place. I don't think it's going to impact on the whole Locke. Though to be honest I think the people that are bothered by the possibility of uconn going West are the players and the coaching staff. Everything I've heard from them is like. Hey we'll bring it on. We'll play wherever we'll play whomever we'RE NOT THAT CONCERNED ABOUT. Gino's been been pretty adamantly over the years but this year when the subject's soon kinda shrug your shoulders. Look I you know. I don't have any control over it and we'll go play and it will do what we do and I think he said the other night after the the American championship game. We'll do what we do. I hope I think That's sort of the philosophy that they're gonNA take me. Maybe their fans aren't happy and maybe people who who look at the tournament and see certain things as they view them. Unfair that a team that is fifth overall. My take would be the one that has to travel. Based on the fact that other teams can can drive to the region. So we'll get into the reason why you would be going to Portland is very simply that The NC Double A. Would prefer as much as possible that teams that can drive rather than fly two games that they're gonNA play It's written right in the procedures principles of putting the bracket together that mode of transportation distance from campus. Things that they consider will this year Louisville can drive the Fort Wayne Regional? Nc State can drive to the Greenville regional. So if you assume that those are those are two of the other number number two seeds. Then they're going to be plotted in those regions and then the other one being Stanford and Stanford mashed up with Oregon would would also violate one of the principles of putting the bracket together and they They try to keep teams seeded on the top four lines from the same conference separate. So they're so they're in different regions. They wouldn't even meet until the final four now. In this case the fact twelve might have five teams in top sixteen making that impossible but in years past when that's happened the committee's not put one a one and a two. They've put fit when a four again. So it's highly highly unlikely that Oregon at Stanford Movie Place Together which only leaves one region left for Yukon to go to which is Portland matched up with. Oregon is the one in the two. So that's the why behind it and I think we talked about the the what or in the case of I think the Yukon players coaches the. So what I don't know that they that it matters to them very much but it does create an interesting conversation around how the tournament is bracketed. And some of these rules. That maybe fans aren't quite as aware of in the the head-scratching that I get from from fans and social media. Say Well if you cons five. They should be matched up with the number four overall team based on the curve. And that's Maryland so they should be going to Fort Wayne. Well we don't ever. The S curve is used to plot the teams in the tournament. But it's not used strictly to place them in these numerical matchups one in eight go together. Two and seven go together. It's never worked that way. It doesn't work that way in the men's tournament. The committee will try to do that as much as possible. That's the goal. But if you've got these graphical instances at hand as well then there there's other ways to balance the bracket and. That's I think what's going to happen. This year with
Future of Cognitive Automation: Interview with Manish Rai, VP, Automation Anywhere
"Hello and welcome to the today podcast. I'm your host Catholic And I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. So today we're really thrilled to be here at automation anywhere for day. And we have a special guest. Our guest is who is the VP of product marketing automation anywhere. How many thank you so much for joining us on today's Today podcast. Thank you for having me. Yeah thanks for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at automation anywhere. My Name is money. Sri and vice president of product marketing. I'm responsible for all the offerings automation. Anyway I have been in the industry for twenty years and in product marketing for the last fifteen years and I focused on AI. For at least five years out of those fifteen years so really excited to be here and excited to be talking to you and your community who gray and I think you here at at the day. The focus that I a part is intelligent automation for our listeners and intelligent automation has gained adoption in many sectors in recent years and one of those places that people may be familiar with intelligent automations as concert robotic process automation. Rpi So many people see our and intelligent automation as a gateway to more cognitive forms of automation. Such as artificial intelligence and so. What role does play to move? Companies up this ladder of intelligent automation so arbeit is primarily used to buy enterprises to automate repetitive business processes and what? Rta has gotten good at over. The last decade of innovation is going to wear the decides helping companies collected from the systems where the data decides and oftentimes that data is split across multiple it systems. That could be a legacy mainframe system DOS system and a modern cloud based enterprise software and it can find that data stitched together formatted in the right format so it can be used by platforms starts fair. A big value comes in and then often people take that data upload to a platform and the cloud and then it gives you some results and you have to act on them and again our P. is handy is taking those results and triggering the next steps in the workflow in the enterprise system so increasingly what people are finding is arpey is the perfect solution for orchestrating. Ai and it's more so because today you have a fragmented ecosystem of platforms that is companies like Beta robot. That might have good Auto Mau. Google translate may work very well versus Microsoft. Osceola works handwriting. And so when you try to combine that together and use those technologies you pick the best of breed from these solutions and is a natural solution for staging than orchestrating across that and that leads into my next question because I think that in order for organizations to really get and realized the power of intelligent automation they need to combine technologies and approaches including our PA but then other cognitive technologies as well. You know like you said they WanNa pick and choose the best. They don't want to be locked into just one vendor or one solution and we see this around our seven patterns of Aids while the our listeners. Know we talk about a lot on our podcast. So the idea of hyper personalization. And if they want predictive analytics and they want gold driven systems and they want to be able to spot patterns or anomaly. They're going to need different solutions in different toolkits for each of those. So can you share with us some examples where RPI and other approaches are used together to help address some of these challenges and automation? Yeah I think if you look back at the history of the company one of the first Will be spotted. An opportunity was in understanding document. Because when you were can start automating processes in the back office. Many of the order to cash procure to be you have invoices and purchase orders. Which are people? Based and fortunately there's lack of standardization of what invoice should look like and sometimes marketing folks like myself go crazy and making the invoices looking pretty which creates a challenge for technology put understanding and processing it so dot be looked at all the INTELLIGENCIA solutions and David. Not Designed for business. Use It in mind who using our automate these processes so we decided to create Iq Baud. Which was a new category intelligence document processing? Today's the fastest growing category in enterprise software growing faster than our and. It's the fastest growing product line and automation. So that was the first stadium be saw we have more than five hundred customers who are using that and every quarter hundreds of new customers as signing on so it's adoption like. I think we were talking to one of the investors and who was saying that if I was a standalone company. It'll be a unicorn in itself so that's one eighty via seeing tremendous adoption. Second Avia people started looking at it when you're looking to automate. Business processes often the underlying applications change. And you need more intelligence to adopt changes in the application for minor. Changes and computer vision comes into play. That's where we started applying ai sense which uses deep learning and computer vision to adopt changes and also work in difficult to automate environments like virtual desktop environments. Where you don't get legless screen like ice? Gm page streamed as an image. So you have to use computer vision to understand. The different fees are so a robot can click on that field and perform some action then. What we found lately is the number of use cases. Starting couple of years started multiplying big time. We have a big company. That's destructing the hospitality space and David getting thousands of listings from people wanting to list their property on their site and David combat images and people will have to manually review the image to extract amenities and they created a model in using computer vision. Now an rt about takes. The listing sends the images to Google preteen model which automatically extracts the amenities available based on the pictures. And they found that they can approve twice as many listings. Now at me the listings went up to experts because a lot of people who list and they'll be waiting for approvals and they'll abandon the listing so their listings went up to x by using automation. And that's an example and other company to Silicon Manufacturing and they take pictures to figure out defect and people are manually analyzing those pictures look for defects to do they need to reject the way for and now the train the computer vision model in the cloud and be takes those pictures. Upload Staten Automatically determines what should be rejected. So they're a lot of interesting these use cases via beginning to see
"rpi" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"RPI pinch double in the Rockies are on the board to, to one. Still, nobody out to McMahon second Ryan's fifteen RBI of the year is Tony Wolters was safe at home. Presented by ring pro partners and CASA the mission to be advocates for abused and neglected children. The Rockies would get McMahon to third base after a ground up by Charlie Blackmon on a contact play. However, he was thrown out at the plate, the Rockies kept the inning going when David dole, single, and Nolan are not a walk did loaded the bases. But Daniel Murphy unable to get the big hit today grounded out to end the inning in the Rockies last hope of scoring. Came to an end the Iraqis again not being able really to get the running game going in part because of the good work of the catcher behind the plate. JT real mute. Oh, but also because most of the time they're rallies began with two outs, so there was no stolen base today for the Rockies. But remember to sign up for old Chicago rewards at old Chicago dot com. So you can steal a draft beer. The day after a stolen base Rockies fall to the Phillies two to one this evening. Our game recap brought to us by Audi. Flat irons out, flatter your experiences.

"rpi" Discussed on KNSS
"Is report brought to you by Oppy life, your life, your journey, your optimal. You luckily for to link which does date that is a clean slate. Shockers are in good shape. Health wise, sir. But here able and willing to contribute in the shockers us everybody, but Alex Jackson as far as position players last night in that eleven inning game. So it'll be all hands on deck, certainly for the double header, and this is necessarily part of the injury report, thankfully, but Mitchell Wolters likely won't pitch today. He threw forty six fifty last night making that victory all the more important because Walters burn for the weekend. And that's the downside playing double header on Saturday to finish up series. Anybody that worked extensively last night on the mound is not available tonight. And that includes Mitchell Walter remains to be seen to lane, obviously, they're closer Connor pelerin through thirty one pitches till see if he's available. Justin Campbell who finished the game lost it through thirty six pitches in two and a third. Brennan, salute Chee and Trent Johnson figure to be okay for the Greenway. Likewise, Alex Segal and Aaron hoc- who berry through any pitches at all in their stance. Last night Connery Peter's likely down to thirty one pitches last night. We'll see if he's available for a hitter or two, but likely not much more than that. RPI watch if you're into such things shockers future and past opponents of bunch of them are inside the top one hundred in RPI and believe it or not the best RPI game shock is plate. So far this year with double header against Creighton. And they swept that Creighton one last night over Kansas state. So now they are fifteen something about the Blue Jays yet the RPI figured out. They are fifteen and six and fifteen any RPI ECU is twenty two..
"rpi" Discussed on One Shining Podcast with Titus and Tate
"Number thirty eight to use the USC Trojans the highest major conference RPI to ever miss the NCAA tournament twenty eighteen they had they were number thirty four in the RPI last year and missed the tournament in. Then they are what history will remember them as the team that ultimately killed the RPI because the the NCAA looked at this was like, yeah. Which probably should get rid of the RPI, December thirty four is in the pack twelve isn't making it. They wanted to. They went twenty three games last year. They finished second in the Pac twelve twelve and six in the Pac twelve and Indian filled when they got snubbed we thought that it was a insead AA back, basically they were involved in this whole little scandal. So this is a nice way to kind of keep them out of the tournament. Keep them out of the spotlight while the stuff is getting handled but looking back on it. That's kind of ridiculous. There's no way that that can really work out. Andy infield is the one that we want to talk about in this one. And you do, you know, the story of how he met his wife, who's a supermodel. No, I don't. So I read up about this. Had always heard about any in filled in his wife, and that was like a big thing that people talked about when he first went there. He's got the supermodel wife. So what happens his wife is a huge Oklahoma state fan. She's from Oklahoma, Oklahoma roots. He was in New York City had a friend of a friend say they were playing down in Boston. Oklahoma state was in the second round, they're playing pin. And she needed a ride to go watch the gang. She wanted to watch. Oklahoma state play. Andy Field says you can take a ride with me. I'll drive you down. There gotta go there. Anyway, he at the time was like a shot doctor because he was a great shooter. And obviously he shot a shot and made it and it worked out well for him. But he drove her down to the game, Oklahoma state, they beat pen, and it was like a whole thing, and they fell in love and for the rest of their lives. You know, they've been in love. And then I started thinking myself, Oklahoma state. She may want to go back to Oklahoma. Andy Enfield can go back to the state, and it all checks out. So you're saying Indian village he's in LA right now with the motto, and it checks out, you you think that makes sense. But it doesn't it needs to go back to Oklahoma state get down to some routes where does, but if they're going to stay job comes open again Doug olives getting it. So. Have you factored that in? No, no, no. So my problem with USC is this again, not to go all the mardi. But what what is what when someone says UCLA basketball? Do you? What do you envision what is their identity dunk city? Oh, wait. No sorry, seriously. Like, I've thought about this since infield got there. I nothing about US's culture or identity as a basketball program again. It's like in that that to me is the ultimate sin for college basketball programs. It's like, I don't I almost don't even care. How much you win or lose? If if I can't like immediately put you in a box and be like, I say Cincinnati. I know exactly what Cincinnati. Is you say UCLA? I know exactly what UCLA is you say Louisville with Patino. I know exact boy did I know exactly. That was yes. Oh Carolina has all these programs. Good bad there. They all have varying degree which doll state, even when they're not quite as good. Like, you still know what you're getting out of them. I never know what I'm getting out of USC. Like, I go into. It's just basically like we get some pretty we get as much as we can. We throw it out there. We try to coach it and like. A certain way, we don't really know what we're doing here and hope it works out, and that's pretty much it. And it's been that way. Yeah. I mean as far as I can remember even back when you know, Taj Gibson and some of those teams are going on Nick young was there. You're just like, oh that guy's really good. But he doesn't seem like he's playing with the reservoir. Join it. It's just like, what are we? It's like an AU team. Basically, what's very individualized?.

"With the quadrant system, Drexel would have been one of the thirty seven teams. I was an at large bid that would have made more sense to me because it was I get to see it in in like actually working. To a real purpose, not just this right now. Just seems like it sounds good. We've modernized this. The RPI has gone. People complained about it anyway. And now we have this new version which is basically we just change RPI to any NET. You know, that's all we added a few other things to make it seem like we're trying to be progressive, but ended the day the same decisions will be made. People will be up in the same exact Fash the same, whether they were before and we'll go back and the committee is going to make the decision regardless. And none of this really matters per usual. Yeah, it's definitely better. And I brought this up recently about how everything every decision the NCAA ever makes people just rip on it and say, what did only. People don't even wait to see what the decision actually is. They just get an alert on your phone. That's like NCA makes decision and they just immediately start tweeting what a terrible decision it. Yes, it only think about it so I don't want to. I don't want to come across as that because this is definitely a better system. There's no doubt about that that the the net would I hate the name? Yes, the net or whatever calling it is is better than the RPI, but it's it's a kin to like you have a road in your town that's only two lanes and it gets backed up all the time and everyone's desperate for the the, the, the, the mayor's office to do something and make the make the road. Like, can we get four lanes? Can we make it wider? And the mayor's office goes and just like flat fills in all the potholes. And then they say, we fix the roads what you guys bitching about. And that's kind of how I feel about this is like they, they filled in Powell state in it's great and we love that they filled in all the Powell's. That's that's great, but it still doesn't address the real problem, which is this whole process is convoluted mess and you can't. You can't have like all. These human beings in on the decision making process and then expect them to take a computerized approach the picking team. So quit trying to do that and just pick a system that you want to use and we'll go from there. But I think a right though, I think it just makes like an out for them for the committee so they can make it can basically throw together any bracket they want. Yes. And given all of the factors that go into making these selections, they can defend anything yet could leave out like a team that's that's thirty three or something going into the tournament, and people will lose their minds and they'll, but the committee can go will, actually, here's why. And it'll sort of make sense given that their their their standards are so confusing and so elaborate that they can bend it any which way. And maybe that's what it's about is it is it finding out for themselves, it's about flexibility and be able to make whatever argument. You know, when they whenever we have the the Sunday selection show, and they bring in the guy that comes in and they asked, you know why Dayton didn't make the tournament and he has like a million different. You know, will they had this many Greider one wins and blah, blah, blah. And then. And then he has the perfect answer already constructed, a no one really has like a way to follow up on it. But what about, you know, the neutral bubble blah, and this quadrant, three that they took this loss, Bob, Nick, no one has any follow up. They're like, okay, that's the answer, let's move on. Yeah, exactly. Okay..

"We have to talk about this new NCA evaluation tool that yeses into the RPI is dead poor one out for the RPI the the what is what it used to be called the ratings percentage index. Is that what? Yes, yes. And now and now it is the net ranking the incident Belay evaluation tool, which if there's anything we know about the way they are great at evaluating things. Absolutely the RPI. So basically what happened is like the RPI every March people would like pull up the RPI and use it as like a factor, but then every March someone would look and be like, does anyone notice it Bradley is like number seven and RPI this, how to problem for anybody else. This would happen every year, and then then say it'd be like, well, you know, there are some anomalies, but you know, Kentucky's number one. So obviously it can't be that wrong. And eventually the public outcry reached the NCAA. They said, RPI is outdated. We have better models. We have Ken palm. We have all this other stuff that people use saccharin ratings, what have you, we should. We should lean more on this. So they come up with this NCA evaluation tool. And this is now going to be the new standard used for seating people in NCAA tournament. Where should we start? We should start with where first of all, I want to start with how the Genesis of this idea came about, and and so it was basically they're just trying to modernize the metric right that that's the new thing. Everyone wants to be monitored to make something new. I thought the most interesting part was who was the consultant for this committee. So it was this committee was put together to figure out a way to to figure out this new tool which ends up being called net. So you'll see a lot of net that comes out. Nestle, you know, I- irony with the basketball and the basketball nets, of course, but it was Gonzaga coach Mark few one of our favorites. Who was the number one consultant on this? And he was the one that was put in quotes out there. You saying that the the, the new metric will prevent outliers. He was saying, teams and leagues were able to trick the RPI in very, you know, unintentional or maybe intentional ways. So this this technology will knock that out. I did. Did you find it interesting that Mark view was the guy that they leaned on because they were just like, you know, we gotta. We gotta figure out what the small guys are thinking. You know, I, it's like a, it's a, it's a big name school, but it's also still small enough. So sounds. Like you care about the little guys even though Gonzaga we know is basically at this point, a big time program across the entire nation and the recruiting kids from all over the world. But I thought it was interesting that Mark view was the number one guy in the face of this whole thing. And it gives me help that you know Gonzaga is, you know, maybe they're gonna fudge the numbers here and be able to knock some the teams out that they don't win the tournament to face. Maybe Mark few nudity is doing low inside. Yeah, that's what it. Yeah, they went to Mark feud because they're like, we want to give you one seeds without you having to go into feuded, but. We do that. So we need to you. How do we do that? How do how do we award a five loss Gonzaga team with a one seed without America losing its mind? How can we make this happen? Mark? He's like, like an idea how about how about we throughout the RPI and we go with this. So the definitely is better like the the, the net would like by the way the the net is totally..

"And really trying to valuate them, it's just hard that those two being in the same clump just it's just a little little tough to believe, given. Even if writer and a super strong ear. It's a tough sell overall. I think that they might tweak it somewhat in the years to come GP. But undoubtedly the most important thing is that who you schedule and then wrote in neutral performances at least becoming more of a focal point in these discussions. And I do think because of stuff like this, you're going to have the committee getting smarter and smarter about this. And one other thought about this parish is, you know if you're thinking that if the any tea or the net, whatever gonna wind up, defaulting referring to as orally. If you're thinking because they have this new metric and this is now going to be completely transparent in terms of like, okay, the top sixteen teams in the you're gonna wind up in the top four season each region, I would really caution against that because that was never the case necessarily with the RPI. They didn't go hand in hand and you still have humans making these decisions. And that's a good thing. I don't want a BCS formula because it's better for college basketball. If we have some things to be mad about angry about on selection Sunday, like we wanna make the bracket better. But ultimately you want to have an unpredictable element to selection Sunday in that big reveal. And then you want to have some sort of engagement and debate that is just good for the sport overall. So I don't want to get to a point where we're trying to run the fastest mile possible. This perfect can be. We're just trying to improve it slowly, but surely so the quadrant system gets us closer to that, but it absolutely needs a little bit of revamping. It's just a matter of will that come in the next five years or not want to read more about it, go to sports dot com. Lenders gotta call them up right now. You could be. Sports dot com..

"Without andrew johns the idea that they're sitting here right now they've got a chance is um is probably pretty good with baylor it you'll jerry doesn't have them in the field right now and i have them in the top twenty five and one at at number 25 five so i've had some people ask me how can you have them there and he had them there or vice versa i think the simple answer to that is jerian are doing very different things he is trying to replicate what the selection committee would do right now by using their methods that means he is heavily reliant on the rpi i honestly don't even look at the rpi like sometimes people will say well this team is i don't even know i don't look at it i i i find it to be an inferior grouping tool now if you made me a brac attallah just tomorrow and said i needed to be trying to to do what the selection committee is going to do than than i'd start paying a lot more attention to the rpi into quadrant one wins and all that stuff but we talked a lot about the quadrant system last podcast and i told you why i think it's it's flawed a move in the right direction but it's flawed obviously the rpi data is is flawed so jay gerna of are just doing very different things he is trying to replicate what the committees doing i'm strictly ranking basketball teams and i don't invade their like addressing you have to have them in the top twenty five tomorrow like when the ap poll comes out if they're not ranked i'm not going to go find all the voters who didn't rank behler and and use the poll tech's column on them but it's very reasonable to have them in the top twenty five right now because they've got after yesterday five top fifty kim palm wins and then you and i have spent some time on this podcast talking about how to losses have to matter they don't have very many bad losses they only have one some fifty can palm loss so five to fifty wins only one some fifty loss so yeah they get ten losses but nine of them are are.

"So make any sense it doesn't put your also relying on rpi data riders 121 in ken palm it's in the one 20s and sagger in um so inherently the quadrant system which is which is again in my opinion an improvement because the committees looking at neutral in road performance in getting a better sense of how they can wait those things and maybe not punish teams for tough road losses are really reward them for good road wins but again when you're looking at rpi data it can really have a bad impact and that's why i think my expectation is that there will be um some brutal missed seedings in this in this in this season's tournament and that is uh it's not acceptable but in a in a stage of transition i think it is inevitable and i just know we are going to be having that discussion that sunday night after the brackets released yeah if i were to improve this on the way i would do it i think of that use a different um i would you something different than the rpi i'm not obviously if you read the top twenty vitam one or you listen to this podcast you know that i used i personally use can palm is a grouping tool i'm not saying that with such good and should use i i just am sitting it's better than the rpi it's different than the rpf but i also think better if your goal is to to try to label teams in certain groups i think can pumped better at grouping that you know good bad advert whatever than the rpi as but if you wanted to use a different metric fine with me but find a different ranking tool and then i would shrink their quadrant one way or another it up and i'm not smart enough to know exactly where that number is frankly that something um but i do think that something that could be figured out like i think can could probably figure that out and i would say it somewhere short of seventy i don't know if it's forty five or fifty five or sixty but there's up it's gotta be short of seventy two where when i say a sentence like this it's not it's not true the sentence being you can beat duke at home and that's a quad one win you can win at rider and that's it.
