How Do You Measure Accuracy in Speech Recognition?
"Do you mean when you say accuracy when it comes to speech recognition. So that's a really really good question. How do we measure that when we talk about accuracy we're talking about. How many words correct did the system get so. We call this word race so often. It's you know the smaller. The number the more accurate system or we can talk in terms of accuracy. The higher the number the more accurate unperformed system is on what happens is as children get younger. The systems that have been on adult data. They have been modeling language adult behaviors. They work reasonably well for amateur ten-year-old nine ten ten twelve the beginning to sound like little adults now we all know that not all kids are like some kids take a little more development maturing but by the whole when they start getting a little bit older and they start looking adults. The system start form. Well what happens when children younger. What you see is the performance. The accuracy error rates of how many mistakes the system gets starts to die right. There's two different types of areas we talk and when you look at it is simply that the system isn't hearing the difference between a child and adult speech or is it in the language interpreting so sometimes when you talk to a voice assistant how you may be asking for something way out there that the system is no idea. So is able to transcribe what you said but it just can't match what you said to any reasonable response you get account response gone. I can't help you right now. I don't know that answer. Canned responses are quite a thing in speech recognition league. We're all aware of but there's another type of problem that exists is that when people with accents or dialects that are not served by these speech recognition systems. That you're starting to see some acoustically. It actually can't even transcribe that. I'm really see that problem when it comes to kids too. We like to think much more as if you're trying to deal with a system to understand a fifty year old male at a four year old girl you can start to see how different the child's speeches their language behaviors whether you're also trying to do for the pheromone your effectively boiling the ocean. You know it's going to work for some courts better than others and that can be age profiles. It can be in language dialects. And that's where we start to see bias so the system. Not performing for certain demographics as well as it does for others and dash can have very profound effects
Dissecting the Diverse Applications of Voice and Conversational Interfaces
"Let's talk a little bit about Conversation all space whether it's voice or Chat interfaces and if can you share a little bit with us about how you view that at the at the design center there do you view conversational interfaces sort of holistically and then whether it's voice or chat than it breaks down from there or do you view voice and chat as two separate channels to question so maybe let me may become with the way that we approached it originally and then i'll try to answer the voice versus check questions so we were really excited with what The amazon alexa team ruled out early. On which was the ability to purchase and pay for anything with the card on file most likely visa card Giving rise of our company and our market share and and so we were really excited. That technology rolled out. We also heard that. The verification method which to us is a very It's the thing that we spent decades on to make sure we get right. Was this audible. Four digit pin in. We understood that was like absolutely the way to do it. That was the right solution for the right time or like well. Can we hit rate on this. A little bit and see where we can go and so we took voice as an opportunity to potentially be biometric modality and reinforce how we would verify the customer to initiate that payment transaction and ultimately we found his voice as a verification method. An-and identification method in certain respects. Just not quite there yet and it may or may not ever be there however it has a lot of applicable in other use cases and we wanted to make sure we knew as much as we needed to about the space to be able to apply it in different ways and so when it comes to chat. We're trying to label like educating helping our partners understand how chattanooga faces work utilizing natural language processing and then obviously that natural handover win. The voice voices the input method as opposed to the keyboard. And how those two play together. And i think the fundamental things that we've learned our it really just waiting for the customer to figure out and tell us what they prefer right We actually just spoke with the company couple of weeks ago where they're bringing more humans into the automated interface not less. They're actually going the other way. They're saying that there is more to augment multiple human interactions with chat whether it's voice or keyboard style interface four the data input then there's more value in bringing more humans in there is less and so our prediction was obviously in an l. P. is gonna start getting the world of customer servicing and. This company is absolutely shown us the opposite

"Speaking at the g. Seven summit on thursday president biden said this quote the united states will purchase a half a billion doses of pfizer cove nineteen vaccine to donate to nearly one hundred nations. That are in dire need in the fight against this pandemic. that's a historic step the largest single purchase and donation of covid nineteen vaccines by any single country. Ever unquote He said these vaccines will start being shipped in august as quickly as they can be manufactured. Two hundred million doses To be delivered this year with another three hundred million in the first half of twenty twenty two bill what what do you make this As a foreign policy initiative exercise in soft power. I think it's it's great. I'm glad the biden administration is doing this. Look at the position. we're in now.

I think it also shows is our editorial points out that We can help the world with their vaccinations without having to suspend intellectual property rights.

Mid-Year Check-In: Are You Being Accountable to Yourself?
"The question of accountability. I love this question for several reasons. Now i it says account dash ability. I love this. One is because you actually have the ability to account for how far you came this year now. Let me explain what that means. Personal accountability means you stated promises to yourself. You took the actions and you fulfill them. You were accountable for how you showed up and how you perform each day accountability. Also means you'd be able to measure that you'd be able to take into account that so what does accountability really mean. Accountability really means you set up some systems of measurement. For your success. I know this is where it was. Jesus put some balloons up dancing bears. Can we have some positivity. Here i started with positivity. Now i'm going to go right to your face. What did you fail to take accountability for. Did you fail to take accountability for the fact that you promised to get your health in order. Did you fail to take accountability for your actions. So you're still blaming your spouse for your results. Did you fail to take accountability for the fact that you got pay some taxes. You still laid on. Did you fail to take accountability for your credit card debt this year. Like i just want you to think. Broadly i told you the beginning. This is a conversation. This is like a good old conversation with. uncle coach. Brendan and so. Where did you fail. Accountabilities piece i know that's hard but high performers are not uncomfortable with this conversation that we got to be very comfortable with our measuring sticks and have this conversation. I can tell you where mine were. Accountability i missed a ton of team calls this year. I fail to take accountability for me to make sure that every single week i got my team calls. I own that i'm aware of it. I'll do better next year. It's important for us to be able to look at ourselves and say you know what that piece. I wasn't as accountable towards my wife at the first five months of this year as i had promised her. When we move to puerto rico. I should have been more available to her. I should've doted on her more. I should have made sure she was set up as much as i was trying to set up the business in the studio and things and you know i should have had more wind nights with my wife this year like i'm accountable for that because i want to be a good husband and it doesn't make me feel sad. I'm not getting mad at myself. I'm being realistic. And i'm observing my own

Hour-Long Partial Internet Outage Brings Humanity to Its Knees
"Was given a chilling peek behind the wireless cuts in all future chaos on tuesday when a global internet outage thoughts on this closed some websites for an hour It was truly harrowing for The planet's greatest species the human race with the loss of such sites as gideon website amazon. Read it and social media sites such as clank garbage g. o. p. o. j. toward la and ephemera where people post three second videos of themselves suffering existential angst Humanity was brought to its quivering. Nays and several major religions declared a full on magadan During the outage the uk government website went down which led to a fifty eight minute. Golden age of joy hope and productivity before normality was thankfully restored. Now i'm alex clearly this This is probably the most traumatic thing that's ever happened to The world How how did you both cope with with with a trauma. I found it a real relief and just the prospect that this was. The beginning of the end was quite a relief Most spent their whole time. Trying to identify which sites were up and down i started to separate doomsday cults and set them against each other. I don't know what you didn't have found one of the fascinating things was. Everyone had an opinion about what should be done or what was happening. Even nobody had any information about what was happening. It was revealed if nothing else that nobody knows how any of it works especially the people who think they do and definitely not the people whose job it was to make it work. My problem is that none of the good stuff that you want the internet to go down with ever goes down like my online mortgage payment went through which is really really painful. And i've had no internet for a couple of days because of the monsoon situation and we don't have any aeroplanes coming and going to india's you know which leads to the question. Maybe you guys know this now. The world with all its essential elements greed tiktok. That's still around. Alice and when we don't we don't really know that's the thing with internet outages is it does. It does lead to people questioning whether anything exists. If it's not being you know life blocked in some way
Playing Your Big Data Hand to Win
"I thought poker was supposed to be played one way. I thought that fish in general did a reacted in one way and the data has just shown me over and over and over again. That a lot of these assumptions i made are just not right and that to me is exciting because that represents a possibility for just growing at leaps and bounds of comment a questionable astakhov question. Actually so i think it can be hard to sort of access data in a very data form when you're playing or trying to memorize those sorts of things. A lot like the assumptions that it are very narrative inform. You know this player. Does this because they have this nature Experienced this thing they feel this way. Are you trying to kind of convert data into maybe structures that fit better into just like the human brain for you trying to really train your brandon in just in terms of data. I tried to train my brain to think. In terms of data people ask me about narrative like why do players do this all the time and i tell them i don't know don't think about it. It's not worthy of attaching a story to why they're doing it. I just know the data reflects that they do and i accept that and and so really it becomes a mathematical equation at that point of just under standing the lines in question and understanding what the data tells me. These players are likely to do the actions. They're likely to take and then making the highest decision at that node in the decision tree like that's really basically measuring weighing fighting the best lines and then compiling them in such a way that you can study and you can memorize you can
How Authentic Confidence Can Boost Your Poker Game
"The first thing that i would say to people. Is you need to invest in cultivating your authentic confidence and not just trying to manufacture confidence. And i'll explain what i mean by that to me. Manufactured confidence is when you're looking in the mirror and you're doing that like on the greatest on the best. Okay one time and this has been years ago. I went to one of those. I can't remember. I can't remember if it was a t boot camp or w. s. o. P. boot camp but it was one of them and this has been at least ten years ago probably more but at the time they had this guy. I don't even know if i should say his name is so horrible. Nobody should ever looks at sky up but he was the mindset coat he is not around. So i don't even i don't know what rockies under but he. He went away okay but his his lecture was. Oh stand up and just scream out like on the grits fokker player in the world and the greatest poker player in the world right now. I'm pretty sure. I've told this story before because just set irradiating but to me. That's manufacturer confidence right. It's not real. I'm just like i could scream out anything right. I'm beyond say okay You know. I i can screw it out is not real right okay. So how do we get this. Authentic confidence which i think is what year student and everybody. Who's listening really needs to think about. So i think we're gonna do just a little Language lesson really fast. So confidence if we look at the root of that is cone fiduciary which means with trust or within intense trust. Okay well let's think about that for a minute if we want confidence. What do we want to have intense. Trust in okay. Well our fells. Yes but more importantly we want to have intense trust with our process at war systems. If you wanna think of it that way and i know you you talked about that a little bit in your answer to him you didn't. You didn't exactly say it this way but a news what you meant And you were telling him to continue to work on his game to make sure that the downswing wasn't effecting his decisions right so basically what you are saying. Is you need to work on your game to the stent that you have this confidence that you know what to do bore. I'd say if you're newer to the game. You're going to be like i. But i don't know what to do. That's true but you can say. I have confidence in myself that i'm going to make notes on this and then i'm gonna go find out what i needed to do whether i get a coach or ask question the facebook group or you know i look up. Articles or podcast. Whatever the case may be okay. So that's what i'm talking about.
Why Turning off Your Emotions Is Crucial in Poker
"Turn off your emotions. This one may be easier said than done but may just be the most important part of the entire process when trying to figure out what the other player has. You can't let your emotions control you. Have you ever caught yourself in one of these situations. A you know your beat but you call to your seeking revenge against a player for an earlier hand or you think. A particular player is always bluffing answered. Yes to any of those three questions. You might want to turn things around using a logical and steady hand elimination process and rains. Construction is a much better way than simply hoping to be right this time. Don't get too stuck on the off chance that you're bluffing you. Even if occasionally they may be if the spot is such that they have more value than bluffs. It may be the time to fold. The fact is that. If you play poker you'll get bluffed out of your hands sometimes and you'll miss earning value in some spots. But that's completely fine as long as you're sticking to rational and math based decisions you're gonna do fine

"second question" Discussed on The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss
"Not like things think of the the greatest ideas in the last ten years Lubar if you ask ten people on the street about Uber. Ride hailing service. They'd say why do I need that. Feels unsaved and why do I will stranger drive me around AIRBNB. Would I let somebody into my home to rent a room. That's crazy crazy so you want people to not like it if everyone likes the idea. It means they've already been conditioned so you're trying to do a better job of what somebody else has. And that is not a recipe for success in technology you. You talked earlier about Scott Cook and being the best product guy. You knew. I've also heard you use use. The term savored surprises. I think that's a really good good. Good framing principle. So can you talk about that a little bit sure. That's something that I learned from Scott one of the thus parts of teaching how much you get to learn and we are really fortunate being here in Silicon Valley that we can write cases is about companies and then have the protagonist of the case. Actually come to the Claus to discuss what happened and not give you the Revised History Patel you what actually and so. I'm incredibly fortunate to have taught a couple of classes. Where Scott was the guest? He was the prime minister. Jason Guest and one of the amazing easing lessons that I learned from him was a concept. That is a core part of the intuit culture now which is to savor lever surprises and by that they mean that whenever you create a new product and bring it to market either as a minimum viable product to group of five users or or two thousand users. There's always going to be a surprise something when you didn't expect people to react to positively or negatively and Scott found that all of the value wise in the surprise. Nice and it's and it's interesting. I've heard him say that in in another forum which was so we weren't paneled together. Wants South by South West and he brought this up and he said that when he's in a meeting and somebody's proposing a big project or a launch or a new initiative. He would ask well as you did this analysis and work. What surprised you? And what what he learned was that if if the people couldn't answer that question they were really just trying to get their agenda across they were just really trying to get money for their pet project. But but how how could you possibly have a market discovery or customer customer discovery exercise. Were nothing surprised you right like how could that. How could that ever make soon right in consensus quadrant? If you have which is death or your or you just weren't you're listening to the market. It's so where where we internalized. It was now when we talk to people. We say every iteration so every company in zero two one prepacked market fit mode. We like to say as an iteration tempo at so consumer product every day. An air price. Software Company can't deliver half a loaf in general motors so their temple maybe slower But we like to say you must have savored surprises at the end of every iteration. We're on some level. You wasted the iteration you didn't you didn't gather any new secrets In the engagement with the customer our president at Wealth Front as is a great saying that the definition of a good experiment is one from which you learned not one that succeeded right right so if there are no USA prizes then you didn't learn anything right. It wasn't a good experiment. And and what was the biggest mistake. You've made it wealth front where you look back on it. And you're just like I should have no I. I I know that was unforced. Air So number one was. I ignored a lesson that I teach my students over and over and over again. which is don't project your own tastes onto other people? This is an enormous mistake my MBA's Mitch. They say well I wouldn't I use that product therefore it's not a good company. Well you might not be the target audience. So that's irrelevant. and is a venture capitalist. You know that's one of the first things you have to unlearn. So I did that. In terms of thinking about the attractiveness of what we initially offered and then the other thing was the original implementation tation of the idea was a marketplace where you could choose investment managers who we would apply the ivy methodology to determine who is likely to outperform on the market and we did a really good job of picking the managers and nobody cared and part of the problem was we applied. Steve Steve Blank's customer development methodology to one side of the two sided marketplace. But not to both thoughts because at benchmark we had back at the number of very successful marketplaces or network effects business. A I had effectively co-founded Equinox which which is now a multibillion dollar so I've seen that firsthand we had open table we had operating systems companies. Red Hot we had a bay and bay. We had a ton of them. And so what I learned from this experience was that it's hard to catalyze a marketplace. So you tend to focus on the sell side before the buy side. I even recruited Jeff Jordan. WHO's now partner in recent Horowitz who had run ebay North America and and pay pal? Oh and after he retired from Ebay actually ran open table and other network effects business marketplace and. He agreed that this was the right thing to do. So we spent spent all of our efforts applying customer development to the sell side and never to the buy side assuming that if we had the liquidity that the buy side would just come. That was the dumbest thing I ever could have. When did you have sort of the epiphany that uh-huh I'm I I need to remember some my thinking on this well. We were failing that your attention we had about San eleven months a cash left in the bank we were. We were growing but we weren't growing at the rate that would get us another venture financing. I knew that we had to do something different. Interestingly the night that I made the decision I was reading a chapter of a Clay Christiansen Book that I was going to talk about in my product market fit class and it just hit me like a sledgehammer. That what we were doing wasn't disruptive in the Christianson definition. Listen it was better but that doesn't matter and it was one of those. Oh my God moments this makes no sense and I've been trying to get my VP of marketing. To Talk to people who started assign a process but didn't follow through to see why didn't and one of the challenges with millennials and. Forgive me for for saying this. I'm sixty years old. Is that people in my generation. Like to talk to people millennials. Don't this is the key to the success of wealth by the way is our clients. Pay Us not to talk to them. We deliver a full suite of next generation banking services and investment services. Mrs Without having to talk to us about anything everything's automated. The downside of it is the only WanNa look at behavioral data or or email feedback to make decisions and I knew we had to get out. Steve says you have to get out of the F. ING building to talk to customers so after six months of trying to get my VP of marketing. Do it. I was a first time. CEO and. I didn't want to step in and tell her what to do. Because that's not very empowering and finally only I said the hell with it I'm GonNa Start Calling these people myself and the feedback. They gave me was unbelievably consistent. which was we used to just address the Public Equity Portion of your portfolio. which is about a third should be about a third of your money and people said rather that you manage all of my money adequate quit Rian inexpensively than a portion of its superbly? And how did you nail your niche early on. Actually it was a great. It was a crossing the chasm suggestion Chin from one of my angel investors again. We had started as this investment management service so we had evolved it was it was a pivot because ninety percent of the software. Where was the same? Instead of having a marketplace of investment managers it was just us that manages your portfolio out a board meeting before we launched the new service and I said to my board members people who are exposed to this love it but my biggest concern is that we have a chicken and egg problem. And that is people don't know how to evaluate a financial advisor so they use assets under management as the proxy for Quality. It's actually terrible proxy for Quality. It's a great proxy for how good someone is at selling others. Yeah not how good they are at investing and so. I'm not quite sure what we're GONNA do here. And Doug McKenzie who's a retired partner of Kleiner enter Perkins who believed in crossing the chasm. Because he's my age said Andy. Why don't you focus on young people in tech because because they'll care a lot more about the quality of the user experience than they will the assets under management and you and your team have enough credibility in this community that they'll take the early adopters will take the shot at the proof of concept that was the critical insight in the history of our company? Said whatever wait what do you do. Just call up people at facebook and say try this. Facebook was about six or twelve months away from IPO or number of employees had sold secondary stock talk. We thought well who are the best connected people in Silicon Valley. It's the people who work at the social networks so we did three or four seminars at facebook and linked in where we educated people on investment best practices practices not wealth front because we wanted to get the engineer as the earliest adopter because we thought they would provide the references to the less well educated people on investing and what we know about engineers is. They hate.

Radcliffe the person credited with coining the term product market fit and since getting product market fit is vital to a raw startup. We thought we'd get straight to it and talk to him. This is Mike. MAPLES junior floodgate. And it's go time with Andy Radcliffe. Welcome to starting greatness. podcast dedicated to ambitious founders. Who WanNa go from nothing to awesome super for fast when you're a startup? Founder you have to channel your inner James Bond Your macgyver. Your wonder woman. I'M GONNA help you win by creating the lessons of the super super performers but before they were successful so without further. Ado We sequence. So let's get started in one thousand nine hundred five Radcliffe Co founded the firm benchmark capital to be one of the best VC firms in Silicon Valley with some of the best start up investments of all time. He's also co founder and CEO Wealth Front so as ideas about doc product market fit and startup. Success are just academic and speaking of academics and he also teaches the renowned class at Stanford Business School aligning startups with their markets. Yeah he literally is. The professor of product market fit. Let's catch up with them. Andy Radcliffe thanks for joining our podcast. Thank you for having me handy. One of the reasons that I was excited to talk to you was to talk about the idea. Product market fit which is probably one of the most famous descriptors descriptors of. What is your at a one star up trying to get to? Where did that term come from in the first place? And what's the origin story. I can tell you the origin story the concept I I learned from sequoia capital. Don Valentine really invented okay dom used to say I. I'm looking to invest in companies unease. That can screw everything up and still succeed because the customer pulls the product out of their hands. I'm on paraphrasing. I'm not sure I got exactly right. He felt that way because the startup will screw everything up. So I want if I want a company that that is such demand from the market that they can literally screw everything instill succeed actually define it in terms. Used by Steve Steve Blank. And Eric Reese they were the first to apply the scientific method to business. And I think that Steve's great contribution to the entrepreneurship business was the idea that I you have to prove value hypothesis and only once you've proven the value I policy. Should you test test a growth hypothesis to me. Product market fit is when you have proven the value hypothesis so the value I- prothesis is the what the WHO in the how. Now what are you gonNA build for. Whom is it relevant? How's the business model? I get this question a lot. How do I know when I have? I have four here is that I used to for consumer in two for enterprise. Okay so the two best consumer ones that I know are Exponential -sential organic growth. People can game growth and they do it all the time and I'm always amazed that people fall for and that they killed themselves into thinking their product market fit because they bought it. The only way to know is if you have product market fit is if you get word of mouth. I learned Mr Scott Cook whose the best product that government and so Scott was riveted on word of mouth while the best test of word of mouth is these exponential organic growth. Because the only way you can get exponential organic growth is through word of mouth. The other heuristic that I suggest is his net promoter score which is a proxy for word of mouth. It's not quite as good. And there are outliers where it just doesn't work so Chenoweth Paulie Appalachia who started the growth group at facebook. Once told me that. At the height of facebook's growth their net promoter score was negative for teen so it's not always an ideal indicator on the enterprise side. The the two that I suggest are one that I learned from mm-hmm one of my teaching partners at Stanford Mark Leslie who created something called the sales learning curve and now one of the metrics rex. The mark used in to determine where in a company's life sales life it was was by measuring the sales also yield the sales yield is the contribution margin of a sales team divided by the total cost to field the old the sales team. So if you have a direct sales wrapping SC inside. Sales Rep and management overhead. A sales team might cost on the order of five for six hundred thousand dollars. Not until what. Mark and Chuck Holloway his Co author of the paper that they published on Harvard in Harvard. Business Review found was that when a company gets to a sales yield greater than one. That's how you know you've hit product market fit. That's to me. The the best test of enterprise product market fit the other one I learned from Gug Leoni of sequoia all my best ideas have come from other people. I just put in his moderate rated chandelier wisdom exactly and Doug who has one of the best noses for product.
