As Privacy Fears About Sharing DNA Increase, So Do 23andMes Layoffs

"From one degree. I'm David Brown. And this is business daily on this Thursday January thirtieth last week. DNA Testing Company twenty three and me laid off one hundred people about fourteen percent of its workforce. Sales have been slowing at the Sunnyvale California Company for some time. CEO and Gysky says she told CNBC NBC. She was surprised by the slowdown. Couldn't pinpoint the exact reason. Swai she speculated however that privacy concerns are playing a row she added that worries about a a potential economic slowdown could also be holding consumers back from spending one hundred bucks or so to satisfy their curiosity about the things twenty three and me can shed light on like there. I color the sweet tooth or their heritage and for more than a few maybe their parentage within hours of the announcement press reports that ignored the. CEO's worries about about the economy. Seizing on privacy. Worries as the most likely cause of declining sales throughout the direct to consumer genetic sector at one time. It didn't look like the new industry would ever slow down but that was twenty. Eighteen that year as many people spit into test tubes to learn about DNA as in the previous five years combined bind according to an MIT report. About thirty million of US have had our DNA tested in. It estimated last summer nine million through twenty three and me fifteen million through twenty three in me's biggest rival ancestry dot com and the rest through smaller companies and millions of those tested voluntarily shared their DNA results with a growing number for a free public databases curious to match themselves with long lost or previously unknown relatives. And that's where much of the trouble for twenty three Rian. Me and the industry in general appears to lie. According to Science magazine in twenty eighteen police tapped into one of those databases called. GED match to crack the cold-case of the golden state killer back in the nineteen eighties. Someone had murdered twelve Californians and raped about fifty and police had never been able to locate a suspect finally by by creating a fake profile with crime scene DNA and uploading that profile to the database. Police were able to identify a group of third cousins related to the likely the killer. Then by using that information they managed to figure out who the killer was a former California police officer named Joseph James Di the Angelo junior now in his seventies regardless of how you may feel about the outcome the arrest and indictment of an alleged serial rapist and killer. The case raised many any thorny ethical questions about privacy and the uncontrolled use of DNA by law enforcement it also elevated this bit of nerve wracking science the more people who donate their DNA results to the public databases the more at risk. Everyone's privacy is even those of us who haven't had our DNA tested according to the verge it's complicated to explain how that works but essentially if there are enough. DNA samples in such a database. The odds that you can be tracked down through a distant relative increase significantly -nificant in fact the risk is so great that at some point it's possible or even likely that everyone in the US will be able to be identified this way the verge contents now. If you haven't committed a crime you may be asking yourself. Why should this matter for many reasons especially realistic fears about discrimination based on markers physical health health mental illness race or ethnicity as the verge explains and Unscrupulous Health Insurance Company using people's DNA without their knowledge could discriminate against people with markers for potential diseases for instance in December the Pentagon warned military members against using at home DNA testing services? Like twenty three and me and ancestry history saying they could pose quote personal and operational risks to servicemembers

"Slash form and we have a caller board from Sunnyvale good morning yes hi I just want to say I'm disgusted with the Democrats in California and the resistance and the obstruction from the very beginning it's a shame that we are questioning the murder of someone who killed many many many Americans and this is just another sham another Floyd to bring down the president because they don't like him personally so you think the president did the right thing in spite of the fact that George W. bush and Barack Obama refused to do this when I was presented as an option I believe I believe President Bush I believe president trump should go after anybody who threatens us who chants death to America and I also believe he should go after the Mexican mafia and the Mexican cartel drug cartel and stop them from infiltrating the United States and killing our kids all right I appreciate your call and thank you for it will go away to another caller that's Larry and Hey where's Larry join us welcome you're on the air and for good morning thank you I just heard the congressman speak of of of the narrative of him being openness pulls you waiting for John Roberts to Chief Justice John Roberts to make sure there's a fair trial and I'm wondering why the narrative isn't becoming also a replacing trump with patients I don't necessarily think prince is the ideal person but there has not yet been and the idea of what the next thing would be it is replace and removes and there has always been a part will overturning the last election but who would be put in place would be pence so I'm not understanding why the conversation the narrative isn't becoming removed Donald Trump and put into place well you just certainly brought it up it's it's not necessarily part of the narrative but it would be I think a fate accompli if the impeachment went to trial.

It All Starts with Data

"Hugh Welcome to the World Transformed Hayfield thanks a lot for having me it's absolute honored to be speaking with you well it's great to have you on you know I was reading over that list of topics there the streetlights smart parking intelligent traffic and security and we were talking about some of those things when you and I have met up at the Smart City oppose him last month and we you know there's there's a lot of discussions going on a lot of people throwing a lot of ideas around smart cities and one of the things I know list is that you've got a kind of a different take going into smart cities than maybe everyone else does when I when I had free matthews on the first installment of this is the first question to her was how do you define smart cities and I think I'll probably end up as out of everybody that I have on but I I really like where you were you start with him when I talked to Franny it's like when you talk about smart cities it all comes down to data but I would say your position is it all starts with Beta right absolutely and I mean just to answer the question about what what is a smart city I I mean I think first off all cities would would be a little a bit different in terms of their definition of a smart city but second to that I've never heard a single city called himself a dump city so interesting yeah we'll throw that out there you absolutely It starts with with data from my perspective when the smart city bom kind of kind of kicked off it was a premise that cities have a ton of data and they're not doing anything with it and so fast forward a few years and every city that I'm in I see you know solution the providers coming in and they're selling hardware whereas from my perspective I WanNa understand and I think it's important for the city so understand what are you have to day and look at the look at the number one number two number three initiatives and start with the data that you currently have and then move forward with what improvements you would like to make to to solve for the initiatives that you have for the for the stadium and its citizens absolutely well I one of the things that I found interesting in our discussion was yeah you can you can look around and see that there are a host of solutions offered for smart cities and some of its hardware and some soft solutions and people have while they have methodologies there's there's a whole lot of there's a whole lot of infrastructure showing up in support of smart cities but it does kind of come down to this question of well okay so you've got a solution have you identified the problem I right do you know what problem you're trying to solve with smart cities maybe people need to take take a step back and look at that when I absolutely I mean it was you know initially it was streetlights everyone you know jumped on the re lamping yes it is of upgrading the street lights to led's and then connecting them and then from the connecting of the street lights now the ability to deploy other sensors and and things of that nature and and while I'm not in disagreement with that I think that that's not the city's biggest problem the cities themselves have have a number of challenges starting from the inside in terms of the vertically integrated organization engage with themselves all the way to the OT side of the of the world where you're you're you're deploying all of these Sensors for people owning and vehicle counting and and what have you environmental monitoring and everything of that nature but again I when I look at it it's Oh city have to have a vision for what they seek to achieve and then they have to start asking the right questions of other solution providers to ensure that these solutions are actually going to solve my problem or move me in the right direction so I kind of I kind of look at it whereas the solution providers are understanding that there's problems in the city and they think that well if you if you deploy mine hi solution we will provide you these new insights and I would argue that in a lot of instances there's data already available within the city now it may not be it'd be quality data that that you're looking for but you should start with that to identify where you need to augment and add or improve because whatever else you're gonNA get from any new system you put in place or any especially any new device you put in place of Ugo Smart Street lamps or Smart Street lights thanks what are they going to do what they're going to produce a bunch more data you're going to have even more and you haven't figured out who the daddy you got yeah exactly and and on top of that if if if I'm a city I'm GonNa see I O or I'm the city manager and I have these vertically integrated organizations and street lights are deployed so public works is looking at the street lights and someone else's looking at something else and then the it department looking at something else and I don't have the data fusion that is going to deliver to me a a single pane of glass which I can say oh I see that the street lights are are operating or day burners I have I had these other things but there's a lot other activity that's taking place how do you how do you utilize that data to invoke either different behaviors or salts for public safety issues or things of that nature across the board and then provide those insights to the vertically integrated organisations that need it right right it just it it makes a lot of sense well let me ask you this what one of the things that I've been hearing a lot about is this focus on regions rather than rather than city said talking about talking about smart regions it was one of the ideas that kept popping up at the symposium am so I I guess this is kind of a two part question one is why would we think about regions rather than just cities is questionable one and number two is if we do that it doesn't the data issue become that much more complex because then we're dealing with data from a lot of different municipalities or jurisdictions or what have you you know that that is a huge topic and and here's a let me give you an example one of the first cities that I worked it's Palo Alto we go through and and we help them in terms of using the data to provide visualizations for the traffic you know as a monitoring aspect of of the solution and we improve the traffic flow there but ah I go to the neighboring city mountain view right Sunnyvale or Santa Clara or down to San Jose I don't have that same experience and so it becomes very clear that that and I'm not saying that city by city is not is not good it's it's great every city needs to have had these initial it is and and and work being done but if I have a regional approach and we solve the challenges associated with procuring Senate and we solve the challenges with a collective vision and we solve the challenges of data utilization and what data is going to be used for what solutions now I get to have a an experienced going from city to city that is the same and that has to be part and parcel to The conversation of of improving cities overall

Yup I mean this podcast was and still is a side thing and the way that I think about it is just like when I think about it brings I think about it being delightful versus you know my main thing it's still another start up but it's like that one I set I put these huge expectations on I think a lot of it has to do with expectations setting like a side project you say this is this'll be a side project and like the expectations are pretty minimal purchase your real thing you put these like super lofty goals and like it's tough to reach them it stressful so yeah it's it's it's interesting hearing you talk about this okay so you leave bell you start this company really well then and then and then you sell it like what was that like yeah well I mean there's a lot that happened between opposite starting the company and selling it one thing that would like to point out is a about a urine so but six months to a year into it I actually moved to Silicon Valley Capello does specifically and worked at a Sunnyvale for almost a year and again this was one of those sort of leap of faith moment so he was really just myself and my co-founder at that time we were just kind of you know messing around not really knowing what we were doing and there was this program through the Canadian government whether basically like hey you gotta pay for your own flight and accommodation but we're GONNA set you up in work out of this incubator called the plug and play center in Sunnyvale and you're gonna be able to live in work in San Francisco in Silicone Valley For six months I was like again what's the harm in doing that right so so I did that I spent some time out there in it was amazing when you use around yourself like-minded people you surround yourself with entrepreneurs Funny story ends up living with someone who worked at Facebook we were building facebook Ad Network so obviously there was a lot of opportunity in networking there and then something really interesting happens so we were serving the ads within within facebook apps and then around the time facebook launched something called the ads. API The ads he is essentially meant that you could now buy ads directly on facebook on desktop or on mobile that will a mobile APP programmatic buy ads on facebook in because we had done all this stuff with this facebook display not work because uh-huh I've lived with facebook sales guy I was networking and I was in that environment we were actually one of the few companies to get access to the FACEBOOK ADS API that was a great experience building the company and then new came a certain point in time where it essentially felt like the right time to sell the company and we were getting a Lotta doubt inquiries but more importantly the business was actually getting in order and heart because the facebook ads API that was more competition margins we're getting squeezed sale cycles we're getting longer so so we decided that hey this is this is a good time to to think about the opportunities that we ended up selling the company to add knowledge while and so you know I like how you're talking about the journey of just kind of not putting uncertainty ahead of opportunity it's like lots moved to Silicon Valley what what could I lose is and then you have this you build this deep network there people somewhere thinkers tell you what do you think if you if you didn't move to Silicon Valley the company would have had a similar dri no I I I really don't think so and I I'm a I tell everybody if you if you are attacked entrepreneur in you have the opportunity to go live in the Bali Whether it be San Francisco Paolo Alto or whatever it is like just go right and there's no there's no there's no beating get fine comeback come back to Toronto Build Your Business or or building business anywhere but you extended amount of time in Silicon Valley it's one thing to fly in and out and do meetings but it's something else to live there in network there make friends there because there's no place like that if you're a tech entrepreneur right okay I mean I totally buy that I'm seeing I'm seeing that now these are things that like you start a business and you don't you don't know and then you go through it for a little while I I have so many people who come to me and the asks me at all so I have this opportunity to go should I go should I not go don't even give me your logic don't even give me a reason even give me a pros and cons of just go right so go get out there spent some time out there is definitely going to be worth yet okay so you go you make all these connections you come back to Toronto Continue Building the company you sell the company is that like a life changing event or you like set for life after selling this yeah I mean unless I go and do something stupid yeah it was it was it was great I mean we actually talk no outside investment for parlor it was it was a significant exit so yeah that's that that was okay great like I am now you know

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. The San Francisco symphony proudly presents a new season of feature films with live orchestra featuring Jurassic Park. La La Land, Mary Poppins and more. Visit SF symphony dot org slash film for details and information. Waymo gets green light for robot cars in California. No humans needed by. Caroline said from business Waymo is the first company and California allow to test robot cars on public roads with no human driver behind the steering wheel. It said Tuesday, the California Department of motor vehicles has given way. Mo a permit for up to forty fully autonomous cars to drive both day and night on city streets rural highways and highways with posted speeds up to sixty five miles per hour. The company which is the self-driving unit of Google parent. Alphabet did not say how soon the vehicles might roll Waymo like most companies testing self-driving cars has long put backup drivers and engineers in the front seats vehicles for safety purposes and to gather data on the car's performance the permit. It has obtained is the first of its kind in the state our vehicles can safely handle fog and light rain. And testing those conditions is included in our permit. Waymo said in a blog post, we will gradually begin driverless testing on city streets in a limited territory and over time expand the area that we drive in as we gain confidence and experience the company's Chrysler Pacifica, white minivans will ditch drivers initially starting around. It's Mountain View headquarters and neighboring Sunnyvale Los Altos. Those outposts hills and Palo Alto Waymo employee's will still be aboard to start just not in the driver's seat. Eventually the company will offer rides to the public as it does in Arizona before expanding beyond those cities in Santa Clara county Waymo will follow the DMV requirements to notify new communities and submit a request to the DMV way moment is the progenitor of the worldwide race to develop autonomous cars after pioneering the field with a secretive moonshot project had Google that began in two thousand nine its success convinced others that atonomy was feasible in the near future. After prompting automakers technology companies and startups to pour billions of dollars into what they believe will be revolution. As transformative has the invention of the car itself. Waymo has been testing it driving fleet now roughly one hundred vehicles in California for years, but like the sixty other self-driving companies in California, it is had drivers ready to take control if something went wrong nationwide. It tests about six hundred cars in twenty five cities in February the California DMV finalized regulations for California cars to operate. Without drivers Waymo applied for a permit to do. So in April, California has been working toward this milestone for several years, and we will continue to keep the public safety in mind as this technology evolves. Said DNB director Jean Shamoto in a statement. However, some consumer advocates cautioned that they think robot cars aren't ready for public roads and threatens safety that argument gained credence with some high profile accidents, including. Luding one in Arizona in March. When an Uber self driving car struck and killed a pedestrian even though it detected her in the roadway ahead. The cars backup driver was watching a video. Although drivers are supposed to remain alert. The DMV is simply trusting Waymo without any real verification, and is putting our safety at risk said John Simpson privacy and technology director of consumer watchdog in a statement, he referred to drive list cars as a Kintu playing a video game. Except lives will be at stake. Some states such as Zona where Waymo has been testing truly a Thomas cars for over a year already allow no driver cars until now California only allowed them on private test tracks which as go meant him station in concord and the former castle airbase in Mercer county where Waymo tests to forego human drivers, the DMV requires companies to provide insurance or a bond of five million dollars and to self certified that they're autonomous cars can navigate roads and have been tested in the planned area. Of operations the cars must comply with all federal safety regulations. For now, that means robot cars must have steering wheels brake pedals and other manual controls. As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet issued waivers for cars to omit manual controls. Among other California requirements companies must have remote operators who can communicate with passengers and send the cars recommendations for how to proceed if the robots get stumped. Because of transmission delays, operators do not actually drive the cars remotely companies also must have a plan for interacting with law enforcement Waymo released its plan this month, it involves education for first responders and the ability for them to easily contact twenty four seven Waymo phone support way. Most permit allows the driverless cars to give rights only to employees and non paying members of the public. The DMV has a separate permit system for offering paid no driver rise in the Phoenix area. Waymo gives rides to about four hundred households. Is that use an app to summon? It's robot cars for their everyday trips to school, work nights out, etc. Most still operate with backup drivers help shape.
