Mr crabs was in charge of the us cybersecurity agency until november when he was fired via twitter by donald trump for challenging claims that the us presidential election had been compromised by fraud.

This has been a multi year effort by one of the very best the most sophisticated intelligence operations in the world. It was just one small part of a much larger plan. That's highly sophisticated.

"stuart bowers" Discussed on The Information's 411

"And so the these are these are imperfect system these systems make mistakes, they're not going to get you from a to b and thus the idea of taking your hands off the wheel or. Even just touching the wheel a little bit. But not actually gripping the wheel is not something that I would recommend at this point. Right. And that debate still still continues. What's really interesting about auto-pilot development process is a lot of the employee's are themselves testing this. The kind of the development builds that they have before they actually release it to the public and Ilan himself is actually using a special car that allows him to test. The most aggressive settings of auto pilot before it's released to the public would even after its release the public. There are a lot of there are a lot of bucks problems. Right. And they've been fairly open about the fact that this is a an incomplete -nology. Right. Which is a crazy concept to think to openly release a beta technology that carries with it getting perspective. You know, the the weight of something that was finished. Right. And they do make you sign thing in your car of like, you realize that you need to be paying attention in this could kill you. Yeah. There is that lease there and people do have to knowledge that, but like are people really responsible enough with this tack again, very debatable. Right. And and so, but but still it is it is something that is worth paying attention to. Because again, they shown for example, with the data of cruise control that they do have some real advancements that they've made their and so for sure Ilan is over promising. That's his job. He's right expert salesman. Marcel promotion, it's something he is planning for sure. But but there is there are actual conscious. The only question is whether the needs to be implemented differently given that people over rely on the tech. And again, if you're if you are interested in this technology, are I cannot like do our articles Justice. There's too much to get into. We actually talk about all the various people who are running this program. All the various things that they do how the system works. How it's different from other SIS. Items out there. So it's got it's got a lot of goodies for both technical and nontechnical. Can you give me a sense? I mean of the people that are reporting to along from this atonomy unit. I mean who among them extremely important, and why well, the the keepers in here, and we actually get into all the folks who report to him is Andrei Karpov who was is basically in charge of vision, computer vision of actually training neural networks to recognize objects. And avoid those objects or break for them or steer round them. And he's got a team about thirty five people to very flat organization, and it's a very academic organization. They're always experimenting, and they're able to experiment because they have this fleet. Out there, and they're able to collect a lot of data and do a lot of experience with that data the person who's running autopilot as a whole is named Stuart Bowers at Facebook for a few years, and then went to snap vows rising starts nap, by the way came in like at a relatively low level engineer, and then rose up to be, you know, one of the top machine learning people the company, and he was working on a plied machine learning at Facebook. So he has some experience in this realm, but we actually mainly get into all the people who report into him. And and everything that they they do we actually list all two hundred people who work for auto pilot if you're interested. I mean, we're up front about it. We say two hundred people the two hundred people on and one of those people by the ways James musk who's a cousin to Alon Mosk. And yet another reason why would have such strong connections to this this team, but he meets with them week on a weekly basis, and obviously publicly whether it's on podcasts or interviews or on the earnings conference. He is talking about auto-pilot, more and more and more and more and promising much more aggressively. What it's going to be able to do in the next year or so for those of you within reason, I mean, the things that he's promising or Chiba mill. No, no, no, probably not. But, but there is progress being made on on all these fronts just a matter of time.
