California City Bans Predictive Policing Software

"In the wake of black lives matter protests, governments across the country have been weighing how to reform their police, departments and address inequities law enforcement. One tactic that's come under scrutiny has been the use of surveillance technology last week, a city council in Santa Cruz California voted to ban what's called predictive policing software? It could be the first measure of its kind in the US, our reporter David. Bertie has been looking into this and joins us to. To explain hey, Dave. Thanks for joining US Qatari all right, so explain to us what is predictive policing? How does it work predictive policing technology as it's used in Santa Cruz or has been using Santacruz? Essentially a data analysis tool that tracks usually three types of data, crime, type, location, and timing, and essentially allows the police department project where hotspots within the city would be an argument for this type of technology is that would allow police department? To basically make decisions more efficiently in terms of how they allocate resources. So why is it coming under? Scrutiny is coming under scrutiny for a few reasons. One is sort of this national discussion. We're having about race and policing which has filtered down to local areas such as Santa. Cruz in California, but also people in that city had a first hand. Look at how this technology has played out the police department. There was an early adopter of the. The technology and decided that if we base our policing tactics on analysis of data that is inherently biased is going to produce an in some cases replicate biased policing tactics. So why is it inherently biased? Explain that to us. How does watching where crimes are happening now and using that data to predict new crimes? Why why is there bias in their book to Santa? Cruz Mayor Justin Cummings explained it this way. Basically, it's garbage in garbage out. Coming said to me if we collect data from police, stops or crimes that are reported in our current policing system, it's going to reflect a policing system in which underrepresented communities such as black communities or Hispanic communities face disproportionately heavy police presence, so we take data from a policing strategy. The disproportionately put officers in communities of color were going to get data reflects. Reflects that policing strategy so in ways in some cases perpetuates that cycle, so it's not I mean just to be clear. When we say, it's collecting data about crime that's happening. It's using data that the cops are giving them about things like police stops there stopping someone, and that is being recorded as crime whether or not actual crime place. They're not yet the. Gist of it and what Cummings would argue, and what the city council. Santa Cruz also agreed upon is that they will also reflect sort of the disproportionate ways. Cops have been shown to stop people of Color, so you know in some cases they might stop a black driver more often than a white driver for a regular speeding ticket, for example that's sort of a mundane example, but I think you could play the Dow and people in Santa. Cruz have played it out over the course of different types of potential crimes now, Santa Cruz isn't the only place in the country. That's used this sort of predictive policing New York. City has used it as. As well, and they've been under fire for many years for stop and Frisk. Policy which basically feeds into exactly what you're talking about. Roy New York pioneers a statistical modeling called COMSAT in one thousand nine hundred ninety S, which is a little bit more of a primitive version of this essentially uses big data from different types of crime committed around the city in order to project where officers should spend the most time in resources, so predictive policing technology basically takes that to the next level. It injects an artificial intelligence to the process. It basically allows software to learn crime patterns over the course of time in order to better project, police should go. So are other cities following I mean this is obviously happening in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and a lot more attention, being paid to the way that policing is taking place around the country. Are we seeing other cities and states kind of think about this in the same direction Santa Cruz is thought to be the first city in the country to actually ban predictive policing, and it did so in large part because. It has experienced with this technology actually in two thousand eleven time magazine named the Santa Cruz police departments. Use of technology is one of the fifty best inventions of the year, so they're definitely ahead of many other cities in this regard, but spoke to some civil liberties advocates over the last couple of days, and they said this is certainly a new front in this larger discussion we're having about police surveillance, which is really ramped up over the last few weeks. Particularly Municipalities, so you have places like Boston, which recently voted to ban facial recognition technology. Technology for its police. Department California, also recently stopped bill at the state level that would regulate facial recognition technology, and I think at the state and local level across the country you do see a lot of lawmakers and activists really start to push reconsider how police use technology

Kevin Maney Talks Unscaled

"Good Morning. Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall today. We have Kevin Meinie with us. We have talked all around Kevin. We have talked about play bigger book that he was CO author on and we've had Christopher lockout about that. We've talked with Mike Damn House partner of his who does a lot of category design stuff. Glad to finally have you on the show great to follow my two colleagues now backing us up a little bit. Because we've talked about all these guys. How did you get involved with both Christopher and Mike tell us? Where do you fit in on this? Oh well I'll I'll give you the short version of very long story. There's four authors of play bigger. One of them is L. Ramadan. I'd met L. Twenty five years ago. Probably when he was running a company called Kwaku sports and we became friends and kept in touch all of these years ground. Two thousand fourteen. He by that point in time was doing advising discs to start ups around some of the ideas that we ended up becoming play bigger. They thought they had some interesting takes on the idea that creating categories was the way to create a Big Bang company Chris. L. Dave Peterson at that point. Form together a firm to do this kind of advisory work and they actually invited me to a dinner one night in San Francisco and told me what they were doing. I was a journalist. I was a technology columnist writer for twenty years by that point and I was listening to their approach and their reasoning for why categories such a big deal and it kind of clicked with me in line with other work in the context of things that were going on technology and digital markets. Were changing things and I thought these guys are onto something and they thought well. Let's explore the idea if there's a book there and So we started to down that road together. The four of US meeting out it Chris's Wonderful House in Santa Cruz California. Riding Your bike to the beach in between long conversations and over time. Tease out this idea of category design which didn't exist before we all got together talking about this stuff and then knitted all of the concepts. These things that they had been already doing testing with companies with Other concepts that I brought into the game and that we thought of as we're working and knitted all of these together into a methodology essentially a discipline that we dubbed Category Design which turned into the play bigger. Which has now. We're actually become a major head in the intrepid earl in venture capital community and I as an author journalist. I thought that I'd be doing this book the next one and instead because the movement was so strong and there was demand for what we have written about. Those three guys pull off they pulled me into it and also Mike who've been part of the family of these guys for a long time. It's done work back. Dave Peters said at one point worked for Mike long ago so as this book generated enormous poll for this idea of category designed. It ended up pulling in like can I We formed a sister for category designed advisors. And I've been doing this work for two and a half years or so working with dozens of companies all over the world right and so the big thing that we're wondering today to is. Actually you have another book coming out that covers category designed specifically for the medical industry. Can you tell us more about that? Sure to watch it back to that. Play beer story saying I'm an author journalists. I actually did go onto the next book. Not Thinking that this was going to categories. I was going to be my career. I started working on a book called unscaled that I authored with Hemant Taneja and hemant is the managing director for General Catalyst. One of the most successful PC firms out there so we ended up doing this call scaled which was about how all these new technologies that were inventing almost all at the same time. artificial intelligence and three D. printing in genomics and He's these world changing technologies. And how there are all coming together to allow us to take apart. These Scaled up industries that we built in twentieth century and do the reinventing do them in a new way and there was a chapter in that book about the Health Care Industry and how this scaling process was going to impact healthcare industry so that became out. I don't know maybe you're a half or something like that two years ago and then we got together with a kind of Steve plasco. Who's the CEO of Jefferson Health? One of the bigger healthcare systems in the country basics and Stephen Heymann tonight took that essentially took off from that. Healthcare chip chapter scaled to write A. It's kind of. It's actually more a short bill. We actually call it manifesto about sixty pages long describing how all these new technologies can take apart the old healthcare system which was really based on taking care of people after they were sick. And that's the way healthcare system. The healthcare system makes money is by anchor sick people. And how technology can create a new industry. That's built to keep people healthy and out of sick care and still do that. Profitably at scale in a way that changes. Everybody's lives in a way that we haven't seen in healthcare in a long time and so this. This new book describes this version of healthcare ad or actually putting the book the release of the book on hold because for for maybe a month or two because everything we describe in. The book is about what we're going to what we're about to see happen in healthcare driven by this Corona virus that is going to accelerate what we're talking about in the book and so we finished just before all this it and we're going to have to take another look at adopted to what's about to happen over these next couple of months

"There's a famous quote by Warren Buffett about his investment strategy when he looks for investment opportunities. He looks for quote Economic Castles. Protected by UNBREACHABLE MOATS SO. In other words huge companies have scale that can withstand or even quash any potential competitor in getting over. That mode is meant to be hard and sometimes the only way to penetrate. The castle isn't by crossing the drawbridge but by going raeside sort of like the way monosso. Bhargava launched five hour energy. If you heard that episode you might remember that when Minoshe got started. The energy drink market was dominated by red bull and monster. There was no way as small upstart like his was going to compete with. The big guys is for shelf space so instead of marketing. Five hour energy drink minnows. Turn it into a different kind of product and energy shot and before his competitors could even react. He'd created a whole new kind of product in the energy drink industry and in kind of a similar way when Julia and Kevin Hart's decided to get into event ticketing. The obvious competition of course was a massive company called ticketmaster a company with lots of control over large events at stadiums and arenas virtually Kevin noticed. That ticketmaster wasn't all that interested in small and medium-sized events. And when they saw that opportunity they realized it could be their way across the moat that ticketmaster around the ticketing business and while is still the biggest player in the ticket. Space event. Bright is no slouch today. Fourteen years since it was founded event. Bright is a publicly traded with a market cap of nearly two billion dollars for for. Julia hearts much from her early life suggested she become an entrepreneur in fact growing up in Santa Cruz. California. She was really into broadcast journalism and apply to college thinking.

The distinction isn't really that clear entered the role of the grey headed or ethical hacker. Gary Rivlin is a journalist and author of the new book becoming an ethical hacker. It's part of the masters at work guides to interesting careers riven sat down with several of the fields, top information security professionals, a quirky and fascinating bunch. He says they're out to do good. But there are practical rewards to the draw would start with the salary and the demands cyber security folks are paid even more than the typical programmer. The demand is off the charts the world last year was talking about this study that saying that there's going to be a need for more than three million cybersecurity jobs across the. Planet. Those of us who are on computers, living, our digital lives. That's frightening to anyone who wants to get into cybersecurity as profession. That's certainly good news. There always be demand in your book. You spoke with half a dozen or so cybersecurity experts. What did they tell you is the hardest part of their job to me? It's what they call the defenders dilemma as a defender you have to win every single day. The attacker only has to win once so it's a really, really stressful job because one breach, and it negates every positive day you had up until then there's a puzzle aspect. You know you need to be created. There's no off the rack solution as the cybersecurity people ethical hackers. I spoke to you have to think like a black headed hacker. You have to kind of put yourself in their shoes. How would they get into the system? To you point in your book that amongst the hackers and the cyber security experts. It's more stude- mail. Why is it important to get more women into these positions? Well, so there's this notion that you have to think like a hacker. Well, if all of the computer security, people are white men who live in the United States, that's leaving out a whole lot of people who would like to break into our systems, we just need diversity, not just as a nice goal though. It is an important goal. But just for more practical reasons I mean as bad as the numbers are for programmers, generally, like roughly twenty percent programmers, give or take a women nowadays. The underrepresentation is worse in cybersecurity, and we can do better in and we need to do better. Gary Rivlin is a journalist and author of the new book becoming an ethical hacker. All of. This might remind you of the nineteen Ninety-two film, sneakers in which Robert Redford leads a rag tag team of noble thieves. I brought up the comparison with Gary and he says, it's one of his favourite tech movies, along with war games. And now for some related links interested in reading, Gary Rivlin's book. It's fun quick read, especially if you're into heists another big takeaway, the path ethical hacker is buried and winding. There's the former journalist the child prodigy the NSA guy, the Wall Street Journal recently got a look into the security team at IBM code named x force read apparently demand in the field has grown so much so fast that, quote, his team of corporate hackers contains more music majors than graduates with security degrees, given the dearth of collegiate programs that focus on the quickly evolving field and quote turns out, you can get certified as an ethical hacker. The council offers several courses including forensic investigation and penetration testing just a heads up the final test to become a licensed penetration. Tester is eighteen hours long. E Andy news has a post mortem on the first cyber attack on the US 'electricity grid pack in March, no blackouts. Like there were in Ukraine in two thousand fifteen but the threat is real people. And finally, trust me, sneakers is not only a great film. It's practically prescient when it comes to this topic don't believe me, birth movies, death dot com. Hasn't analysis, there's the phrase, most undervalued movie of all time. I agree. I agree. I'm jed Kim. And that's marketplace tech.

We're going to survive Lima change private money and entrepreneurs have to get game from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. We're continuing our new series on marketplace tech called how we survive about. How technology can help us adapt to climate change. And here's the thing about that. It's expensive the UN puts the total cost to society at fifty four trillion dollars at a minimum by the end of the century. So arguably what we need now is money to create innovative technologies to help survive. The worst effects of warming Jayco is managing director of the private equity firm light Smith group, a firm that's hoping to find an invest in some of those technologies, and he says there aren't many others like it. I think it's one of the earliest attempts to try to look at of teaching resilience as an investable opportunity. Most money so far has gone toward mitigation trying to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency or toward recovering from disaster. And the bulk of that spending is driven by governments or nonprofits if you look at the global tracking of climate finance lists and five. Two six percent of all finance in the climate universe can be tributed what's called agitation or climate resilience. And so far the private sector has almost no skin in the game. But co says the need for funding is staggering three hundred billion dollars a year by twenty thirty in developing countries, alone and only growing so on the one hand private money is going to have to step in without being able to harness the flow of private capital from the private sector. We're going to face a much much more challenging experience with the effects of climate change flowing through over the next several decades and potentially the next several generations. And on the other hand, there is money to be made from companies that can come up with great solutions and scale them. Our rule is to find companies like that with great management teams already growing that can then be excel rated in their growth that will generate better returns for investors and also a better outcome for society. Okay. So but next question, what do you find co says he's looking at two possible catego-? Oris for investments, which he calls. Macgyver. Maclay? Macgyver used what he had to get out of jams. Looks like it might be Thurmond, Bob. So that's climate intelligence. Like, we talked about earlier this week or things like artificial intelligence for modeling risk to buildings and real estate. Then there's taking technology. We already have transferring it to different parts of the world, and scaling it. Up like, drip, irrigation or drought resistant seeds or cheap. Internet connected sensors for water metering but more available and cheaper. Now. Marnie MC fly from back to the future. Could use tools from you know, the future to change things. And so that means investing in entrepreneurs with crazy, moonshot ideas or materials, we haven't invented yet or just innovative ideas. I say distilling clean water from the air at any house or school or building anywhere on tomorrow show will look at a little macgyver and a little MC fly. And now for some related links. If you are not already you should totally subscribe to make me smart. The other marketplace podcast that I'm on with KAI Ryssdal. We did a crossover episode this week about climate adaptation with Solomon Hsiang, a professor of public policy at firstly who studies the economics of climate change adaptation, and in my opinion. It is a great episode. Jane brought up this really interesting idea of opportunity cost related to add up tation and resilience. He said that basically because of climate change the cost of just survival is getting higher, whether that's hardening infrastructure or disaster recovery or building new seawalls or AI sewer systems, and that leaves less money for other things in our society, like schools or firetrucks or the tech innovations that will need to make life easier or even possible over time other interesting reading on money and climate change last month to central. Bankers wrote an open letter about climate related financial risks. And how in fact climate change is a severe threat to the global economy. And I just learned there's a Sirius XM radio show called knowledge at Wharton, which probably also makes you pretty smart and on the most recent episode two professors from the university of economics and business talked about that letter and the potential economic impacts long term, and I really want this series to be focused on solutions in kind of a hopeful way. But in slightly bummer news earlier this week. It was confirmed that global carbon dioxide levels have hit their highest number in human history at four hundred fifteen parts per million. Scientists say that was probably last the case around three million years ago when sea levels were at least fifty or sixty feet higher and the Greenland and west Antarctic ice sheets. Probably did not exist so solutions, then I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN Patrick in Santa Cruz. California wrote to us to say marketplace is an essential element in his life.

Thanks for your help. You're supposed to tip your house cleaner write about kicking into their disability insurance from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy on jed Kim in for. Molly would. Some might consider domestic employees the original gig workers. There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah. But then she thought about all the other types of workers who get benefits oughta Mattingly. You don't think benefits you one the toll moon, though, that I don't know if you've seen us, they a whole ISM benefits us. She thought why not me, but you'll notice way at the net. The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber. There've been several other settlements for the company, but none that would seem to break the Bank after all we're is expecting to be valued at one hundred twenty billion dollars. I'm jed Kim.

That's his oldest humanity from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. This week on marketplace tech. We're looking at how a troll becomes a terrorist. How people are recruited and radicalized online through social media, and what companies can do to deal with it fatality. Mogadishu is a professor of psychology at Georgetown back in two thousand five he published a paper called the staircase to terrorism which was an exploration of how out of millions of disgruntled people in the world of very few rise up. This metaphorical staircase and commit violent acts in the real world. He says radicalization isn't new, but the internet can make it faster and easier. I asked Mogam what motivates people to take that last step to physical violence? Well, it's a slow process sometimes, but it can also be rapid. But the key issues are that's individuals feel that they are being mistreated that they there is injustice in the world particularly nowadays through the internet. An echo chamber is developed and 'isolation takes place. So that this group radicalize is and the radicalization takes place in relation to other groups. It's what I call mutual radicalization and gradually. They get to a stage west one or two of them are ready for actual violent behavior. It sounds like what you're saying. Is that not only is the internet particularly good or not only is it particularly ripe for this type of behavior. But that in fact, as online communities become radicalized, they they radicalize each other like they upped the ante absolute the this is becoming the norm. And we'd see this in politics. We see it in extremist ideology. So that there is a relationship between the? These radicalizing movements and the internet, and this is taking place in the wide context of globalization. You know, you you've said that the latter stages of this radicalization staircase are somewhat rare. But do you see this becoming this process becoming faster or more common? Yes. Definitely becoming more common in the sense that the mutual radicalization taking place the probability of more individuals moving up to that final level of the staircase increases, and this is very much related to the type of migration taking place around the world, and the kind of leadership coming through now is quite different from what was taking place ten years ago. I wonder how can companies individual companies and platforms combat this. Radicalization process on their networks, the lodge corporations media corporations have a duty to take on this challenge. They have the tools available. They have the technical means to do this. They have to get more serious about controlling hate speech. They have to get more serious about controlling echo chambers, and influencing echo chambers. Fatality Mogadishu is a professor of psychology at Georgetown. He has a new book coming out called threat to democracy, the appeal of authoritarianism an age of uncertainty tomorrow on the show. We may wish that big tech companies could just make this all go away. But that isn't as easy as it sounds. And now for some related links. You'll find a link to the professors paper on our website, marketplace, tech dot org, and CNN has a good piece this week about this topic of online radicalization, and what big tech platforms can do about it. They spoke with a terrorism expert who says simply taking down extremist content, just shifts the content and the audiences to smaller platforms think of say the chat app gab, which is a favorite of Neo Nazi groups, anti-semitics racists and conspiracy theorists. The expert said algorithms shouldn't amplify extreme content for a start. But if they know it's there, they could actually redirect people to forums with different viewpoints for even therapy resources. It's a super interesting read in the UK. There's actually a startup called moonshot, which is trying to intercept people lower on the staircase if you will by targeting them with what they call. Off ramping campaigns basically messages that direct them to more positive content, and they can even intervene online to connect potential extremists with offline health, and like I said, we'll talk more about this tomorrow.

Amazon's information about what we are buying is turning into a really good ad business from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. You're how there's this sense that if Amazon gets into your line of work, you're in trouble. Well, Hello digital advertising. Amazon has been slowly building up its ad business. Leading brands target ads to people on Amazon dot com, and it's other sites like the live streaming platform twitch IMDB, which it owns and Zappa Zappa's. And then, of course, all across the web. And it's pitch is simple. Amazon is telling advertisers that the best predictor of what you the consumer are going to buy is the stuff. You've already bought a report out today from research firm emarketer says Amazon has been a distant third in digital ads behind Facebook and Google and is starting to look like a dangerous third Monica Pierre is senior forecasting director for emarketer. So over the next year, we expect to Amazon will cross over the fifteen. Billion mark. Meaning that it's definitely gaining share on the top to add selling platforms, both Google and Facebook and gaining over ten percent share in the market, which which will be quite a feat. When we think about not even being, you know, five or six percent in the past couple of years, and then tell me about the data advantage or the the data play that Amazon has I mean, it seems like it's taken people a long time to realize the potential power of Amazon, including maybe Amazon from a business perspective the power of Amazon, knowing what you buy exactly it. And that's really the true differentiator when we think of Amazon and in its competitors. Really? You know, Google certainly knows what we've searched for and Facebook definitely knows what we've liked who are connected to but Amazon. Will know what we bought and for advertisers that are selling products, that's really helpful to know. So this, of course, does rely on any e commerce at business relies on your data. Amazon has a lot of trust right now in with a lot of consumers at a time. When people are getting more mistrustful of the advertising yuko system and how much information it gathers is that a concern for Amazon at all that consumers might say. I didn't know you were gonna use my information this way, right essentially, it comes down to ease of use. And whether the customer is getting what they've asked the platform for and so such as it is with, you know, other platforms Google as long as you're returning the search results that that you're looking for consumers are can be quite forgiving about sharing information. So that's an opportunity, of course for Amazon. On. But it is something that consumers will start to think more and more about the question becomes whether advertisers. See that as a risk math, Monica Pierre, senior forecasting director for emarketer. And she says this realization that real time information about what people are buying might lead to successful ads who thunk right is also pushing other ecommerce companies such as wal mart to build add businesses too. And now for some related links as it happens. Bloomberg had a good story over the weekend about WalMart. And it's add ambitions, you can find that on our website. Marketplace tech dot org. One thing. It says is that WalMart actually has more US customers than Facebook Google or Amazon combined, but just hasn't figured out. How to take all that good information about what people like to buy and turn it into money, but Amazon's rapid growth in terms of advertising, certainly offering a new model. In fact, the story notes that target's grocery chains like Kroger and other brick and mortar stores are starting to make the same pitch to advertisers about how useful their data is for selling ads that get people to actually click and buy it's a super interesting development because it tells you that the race for who's going to win the internet era is definitely not over even though it feels like Facebook and Google have a lock on the whole thing. Sometimes I mean, advertisers are a mercenary bunch. They're looking for something called conversion rates that is the thing where we actually click and by. Instead of just ignoring ads, and if they start getting better conversion by buying out space from WalMart or target or Sears or Domino's pizza. Then all of a sudden Facebook and Google don't make so much money after all, and they're not so invincible, of course, Amazon could just end up being the most invincible of all. But either way the story is not yet written and it's possible that a new chapter is just starting. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN. Patrick in Santa Cruz.

We really liked crossing streams not flakes, Hulu prime from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim informality would. TV junkies. Rejoice twenty nineteen brings media giants. Disney and Warner both into the streaming service fray as if there weren't a whole lot of on-demand content already out there so much to see streaming has definitely disrupted the way we watch. What about the way we pay for it? Predictions of widespread cord, cutting the demise of cable television. Are we seeing that Brian weezer focuses on media and advertising is a senior analyst at pivotal research group? He says people are actually piling on more and paying more. There are certainly people who have chosen to eliminate their traditional cable service and solely rely on over the top services. But that's a minority of the population. The majority are maintaining their existing services and they're adding. New services. All right. So Disney is starting streaming service. Warner media is getting into it too. You know, economic principles with all this competition. And that mean, better prices for consumers. I don't know why more services would mean better prices. If consumers are exhibiting a willingness to pay which they are in life or business. We don't make decisions because they're good or bad. We make them because they're better than the next pestle turn if the next best alternative, I might suggest when it comes to video base entertainment is going out seeing other human beings spending money on a babysitter as well. The cost of going out is substantially more expensive for most people then the cost of paying for another video streaming service. And when you look at it in that sense, it's actually cheaper on the overall pocketbook of a household. And I think that's helps explain why. Why there is sustained increase in total spending on video based products will stick you with money. What about advertising because these a lot of these streaming services don't feature advertising, so broadcast TV still reaches almost everyone across almost every age group. Right. So broadcast television has retained if not expanded its relative value to advertisers. Because if you do cut the cord, or if you've never had multi tail service, you almost certainly have access to broadcast TV, right? You put Brad here's. And so two extent that advertisers can still reach more people with a campaign that runs on network TV then on essentially any other medium in a world. Where reach is the first metric that you use to assess where you should prioritize. Is your campaigns network? TV hold up. Pretty well. Bryan weezer is a senior analyst at pivotal research group. I asked him how many streaming services he personally uses only two which seemed honestly kind of low to me. I mean, I'm knee deep in stars right now.

"Holly. Go to Don in Santa Cruz, California. Hello, Donald welcome to the program. I fellow so say I saw the movie buddy Holly way back when the old fogies the older people in the cloud. We're saying one, buddy. Hi with go. He's a bad influence, he's bringing jungle instincts, and you know, if the government did have him killed was probably for that reason. Because rock and roll he was one of the valley and fathers. Yes, I rock and roll in my opinion was America's victory dance for winning World War Two for all that misery interesting. And the one thing I've noticed about all these deaths from Jim Morrison Jimi Hendrix, and everyone else is the public is sitting on their hands like a bunch of monkeys with their eyes and their ears and their mouths shut. Why are we gonna stop being slobs and watch the slaughter just with without saying anything? Okay. I don't follow that. I don't follow that. At all, Gary, do you know, I I mean, I I'm I'm kind of interpreting that he thinks that these stars are being slaughtered because of the examples they're setting I like murdered. Yeah. Is that what you're saying? Well, we get back to the mafia situation with the buddy Holly. Yeah. That's I believe that's real. I mean, Peggy sue says the buddy was worried about it that he was being pursued.

Instagram is the younger, cooler, Facebook and advertisers thinks so too from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Yesterday on the show, we talked about advertisers on Facebook, and how they're not leaving the platform, but lots of them are migrating from Facebook proper to Instagram one analyst estimates that adds on Instagram will account for seventy percent of Facebook's new revenue by twenty twenty. And the most exciting thing for the company is stories the little post that expire after twenty four hours. Yeah. Instagram may have stolen the idea straight from Snapchat. But it's working there even stories on Facebook. Now, Mark Rabkin is BP of ads and business platform at Facebook in the second part of our conversation. He told me people are posting over a billion stories a day and advertisers better get on board. It's an amazing opportunity for businesses to use a similar kind of authentic more real voice and plug into people's lives in a great way. But the other thing we're talking about is this is kind of like a warning shot for how fast. Shifts happen in the mobile world. And a lot of what we're working on with businesses is telling him, hey, you gotta get on this train. But this is not the only one trains are going to be leaving the station every year Facebook has been holding boot camps for advertisers to teach them how to make these new kinds of ads. But what about the users who might not be excited to see way? More ads in there feeds I think people will be okay, we have over the years. You're so much experience. Figuring out how to add adds to a product in a way that people respect and enjoy we do absolutely extensive research on how people feel about the ads. So I think we'll be able to get people to a good place manage their expectations provide them a good experience. Just like we've done all the other products who've been able to monetize ads, but here's the thing about ads on Instagram. Lots of small companies are selling directly to people on social media. And even though they're Instagram. Ads may look great not all the companies are above board. I asked Rabkin iffy. Worries that ads for fake or low quality products will turn people off of Instagram Matt's completely like that time me and all my friends about the same great, looking yoga pants that turned out to be cheap and awful and didn't fit anyone what we're starting to make a lot of progress on is kind of measuring how happy people are after experience. Both you know after they buy something like yoga pants. How do they browse ads in the future? Or are. They still into them is different and we're trying to manage it. So that every experience you have with ads on Facebook or Instagram makes you more confident and happier and more likely to engage with businesses on the future. And if we find that the opposite is happening than we're managing those companies Rabkin said Facebook is experimenting with things like augmented reality. Adds to that let you virtually try on makeup or see how a couch might look in your living room using your phone's camera one thing is for sure though, Instagram is where the money is so expect a lot more commerce in your feed very soon. And now for some related links. This week's make me smart podcast. With me in Cairo doll is all about Instagram. And whether we're fooling ourselves by thinking. It's the kinder gentler less data, hungry alternative to Facebook. I mentioned in the podcast that I actually find Instagram's adds to be so well targeted that. It's almost scary. And I know at least one person who recently confessed to a full blown insta- shopping addiction. And as it happens. I found a funny story on business insider about a woman who bought a sweater that she on Instagram, and then realized that everyone else her age and in her area had not only seen the same sweater in there feeds, but some of them had bought it to no one is unique in ad targeting. You can read that story on marketplace tech dot org and check out a Forbes piece that is much darker on the topic of targeted online tracking. It's about a one man company that for twenty nine dollars. We'll let you buy an ad campaign to manipulate any specific person you want on social media like one guy targeted his wife with messages about how playing ten hours of video games. A week is a good thing to women use the service to encourage a co worker to quit her job because they didn't like her and the most popular service targets women with ads about how they should initiate sex for twenty nine dollars. We are all living in the Truman show people Cobra the story, and then try to forget you ever read it because honestly, I don't even know why we use the internet. Sometimes I'm Ali would.

Hi, Tobias up two questions. One would be the all Wiley envision nineteen Eighty-four. I see that some spaces. Now, I'm wondering if you saw that in the sixties or not really and a second question would be about. If you look at say, the Beatles Rolling Stones some of the movies, some of the actors would they have resonated in the forties. Even JFK for example, lesson aided in the sixties, but he was around in the forties and fifties yet, we we never see his forties and fifties Persada portrayed. Okay. Hello. Go ahead. Yeah. The first question was there. No, William vision visible in the sixties. Yes. I think I was hugely impressed the TV series. The prisoner made in nineteen sixty seven sixty six and it completed in January sixty ice shake which talked about a control state where the individual has every appearance of liberty as organized by what is called the village. But in fact, is an absolute prisoner and shoot he deviate is mind. There's got to be adjusted and the beauty of the prisoner was that he does get out in the end. So I think that awareness that there was a system that is designed as it were to oppress and suppressed the individual spirit, the individual identity that was very important realization, all of the of the most active mines. In the nineteen sixties in the western world. And because of course, he knows as you could see not for in the Soviet system. You could say in the Republic of China, you could see these tinpot dictators who who people about dress in in you know, to be sized away as as and when you need or do not need them, the individual must be suppressed. So I think the the one of the many great things of kids coming out of the sixties is the realization that if the individual does not find his true identity in this. Well, no one will. That's that's a major thing. The second point you said about whether the Beatles et cetera would have resonated earlier. I think it definitely no. The forces of repression, and they in periods would have been I think too intense to allow it to flow. I mean people like the base was helped by an older generation who was sick of what they experienced in the forties and the fifties I to give these young chaps a chance and they've relied immensely on the generosity of certain individuals who adopted around the world, whether they were in Hollywood, New York London or working in agencies.

How much would it cost to create a military Space Force?

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by Mozilla makers of the brand new fire FOX monitor a free service to help you stay safe from hackers. You'll get a full report if you have compromised accounts and notifications if you appear in new data breaches take care at monitor fire, FOX dot com. How much would it cost to create a military space force from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams in for Molly would. President Trump has said repeatedly that he wants a space force congress denied the request for a new branch of the military in the latest funding Bill, but some have started pricing it out including the center for strategic and international studies. Todd Harrison is director of the aerospace security project there. He broke it down into three models a space corps within the air force a space force light. Or a space force heavy all of which would mostly use existing military resources, but would require an additional one and a half to two point seven billion dollars over five years Harrison says his estimate is based on the idea that a lot of the work is just moving people around all of those things that we do today for national security space that authority right now is fragmented across the military. What a space force would do is actually combine those into one organization and one unified chain of command. That's in charge of space. So you're estimates are much lower than what say air force secretary. Heather Wilson laid out earlier this year. She said space force would cost about thirteen billion dollars extra over five years. What accounts for that difference? What when the air force put out there estimate. It's actually the cost estimate for space force and a new combatant command for space United States space. Command included in that thirteen billion dollars is a billion dollars to build a new headquarters building for space command something that arguably is not needed, and it's not related to the space force at all. So the air force through in a lot of extra things that aren't actually related to the space force to get to that thirteen billion dollar numbers. So that's really the big difference. But as space Twitter was very quick to point out. There were some things that you left out as well. Like transition time new satellites new missions new uniform says people seem to be very happy to discuss. Yes. So you could build on the cost of new unify. Terms. I I will take that. I did not include that in terms of new satellites. Oh, will sure that's a different question though than creating space force. If you want to expand what we're doing in space. Absolutely. That will cost more. That is a separate question though. From how we organize within the military force base. How real is any of this? I mean, how likely are we to see space force in any capacity anytime soon, you know, I think it's a coin toss right now because you know, the president is adamant and pushing for this. But there have been some members of congress who well before the president got onto this issue. There is a bipartisan effort in the House Armed Services committee now that the house has flipped control the democratic leadership is sounding much more skeptical of this. And I think in part of that it's politics is this has become branded as Trump space force. So that's gonna make it harder for many Democrats to get behind it and supported even though they may have supported in the past Todd Harrison at. Center for strategic and international studies. His estimate is one of several out there for what a space force might cost. We'll only know for sure if congress gets on board, I'm Kimberly Adams, and that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. All this week. We're partnering with c net reviews talking about the big trends in consumer technology. One of those trends has been that televisions which used to be in the pipedream category. Holiday gift ideas, are now more in these stocking stuffer price category television prices have been in free fall for over a decade and manufacturers have tried to keep people buying with gimmicks. Like three D And ultra high resolution four K, which does look great. But there still aren't many shows or sports being broadcast in four K as a result TV prices just keep getting lower. And the only thing that is getting people to buy them is streaming David Katz. Myers editor at c net covering TV's and home theater. The biggest growth this year. We've seen with Roku TV. So these are inexpensive televisions. Made by companies like TCL, high sense from China that a pack in this easy, smart TV system that Roku has almost perfected where it's just a bunch of absolute just like an iphone actually on your to your TV screen, and you. Do you jump in an ethics and Hulu and Amazon get right to your shows. And it's all with one simplified remote on the TV more and more people are using the systems built into their televisions, and Roku is kind of the ascendant one especially with this millennial audience that, you know, getting their first TV and can only for to spend a couple hundred bucks on these things, and they really are that cheap in a lot of the screen sizes. So TV's used to be a major investment, they're a lot cheaper now. And I wonder what that means for the TV market overall which has struggled, right? Yeah. The TV market has always been this. You know, cutthroat no margin kind of business. You know, you can get a fifty five inch TV for three hundred bucks. You can get a thirty two inch TV for one hundred twenty bucks, you know, in those used to be big screen sizes. And now, they're kind of the medium range in the profit growth. At least in the TV market is in the sixty five seventy five super big TV's, the United States. So that's kind of where the larger brands are focusing their efforts. Meanwhile, the TV's that are really selling really well are in that fifty five inch range, and they're they're just getting cheaper. What's happening? I know you also cover home theater, where's the growth happening there? A sound bars are really where it's at one of the coolest things we've seen this year is the integration of Alexa, into the sound bar so poke for example, as a sound or with Alexa, literally built into it. And you can just talk into thin air and say turn on my TV or, you know, volume mute those kind of things which is really useful. A nice merging of the smart home speaker with the entertainment system, I love that direction. Sonos also has a product that works in the same way little more expensive. So I think we we've said in the past seen at that. Every speaker is going to be a smart speaker really soon that trend meaning voice control speaker with Alexa, or Google assistant is certainly going to take hold with all these products because it just works beautifully for music.
