Why We Need to Fund, and Not Defund the Police

"Katie king and the San Jose spotlight June 26th, 2020, congressman Khanna, explaining that police officers are a necessary part of society, Khan has said defunding the police didn't mean disbanding law enforcement altogether. But the representatives said it was time to examine whether funding is being appropriately distributed among police and other social services like education and affordable housing. Okay, that's two years ago, right after George Floyd, two years later, we have rising crime terrible, terrible crime in the inner city. Don't we need more funding for the police police as opposed to redistributing their funding? Yes, we do. At a meeting with the police chiefs in my district in San Jose and Sunnyvale and Fremont, about a year ago, we've got I'm sure you've read some of these terrible smash and break in crime smash and grab prime. And they said, we need more police. And I agree with that. And I think we need to uphold the rule of law. Not for ruining a young person's life if they break into a Walgreens, but I'm also not for you can do that and not have accountability and do that three, four times. And not face prosecution.

Who Will Pay To Protect Tech Giants From Rising Seas?

"Lauren in our episode last week you told us about facebook how the company has built its headquarters on the waterfront and at sea levels rise it and the cities around it will need to build defences to keep the water back and the big question in that story was was a fair amount for facebook to pay for those defenses. And today we're talking about whether buildings should happen at all in areas vulnerable to climate change. And it's a story that involves another tech giant google. Yes and for google. The situation is a little different. And i should say google is among npr's financial supporters. Yep disclosure Yeah they recently bought a lot of property in sunnyvale with plans to build a major expansion on it. it's actually more than seventy properties close to the shoreline worth almost three billion dollars. Whoa okay that's a lot and what's there now. Yeah this neighborhood. It's known as moffett park. It's really an office park right now. There's lots of these low rise office buildings with lots of big parking. Lots what google wants to build is different. It'll be offices of course but also housing which isn't in moffett park right now and it's it's not for employees necessarily. It'll be on the market for anyone. They're also envisioning green spaces and bike paths basically walkable neighborhoods. That's the direction. A lot of cities are going in. Right yeah. I mean getting people out of their cars and moving away from the suburban model. Yeah and changing. Our land use is a key strategy for dealing with climate change and cutting carbon emissions but climate change is also a problem for this neighborhood because sea levels are rising and rising increasingly. Fast right okay. So how soon will that encroaching water be a problem fairly quickly. I mean there's already been about eight inches of sea level rise over the last century. By mid century san francisco bay could see about a foot to two feet and by the end of the century. It could be as much as seven feet. If humans don't substantially cut emissions so basically every high tide is getting higher and the risk of flooding is greater if there's a storm or wins that create bigger

Google Plans to Expand Its Campus Which Might Become Unsafe

"Google is expanding its campus in the san francisco bay. Area the companies. Planning to build offices as well as housing and greenspace near the shoreline which is at risk from rising sea levels. And that's raising the question of whether building there should happen at all. Npr's lauren summer has the story as a city planner in silicon valley. Michelle king. here's all about one of the biggest headaches in the bay area housing. Oh my goodness housing. Here is extremely expensive. Sunnyvale has very high cost of living in may the median. Home price in sunnyvale. Where king works was one point. Eight million so the city is looking at a different kind of housing higher density. That's walkable transit and greenspace. It would go into a part of town called moffett park right now. It's just offices lots of low rise buildings with wide parking lots one of the most sustainable things you can do is put people where they work and put people where transit is so. This is a huge opportunity. This isn't just sunnyvale vision. It shared by one of the largest landowners. Moffett park google over the last five years. The company has quietly bought more than seventy properties. Here worth almost three billion dollars. Jeff holtzman is google's director of real estate development for sunnyvale. We're incorporating sustainability into everything we do in our developments and we're doing it to support our employees but also the community and hopefully the environment. Sunnyvale is in the process of rezoning the land to allow google to build new offices and housing and just to know. Google is one of npr's financial supporters. And there's one more detail the city is looking at. This land is on the shore of san francisco bay which puts it right in the path of sea level rise sea level rises already happened. I we've seen about a foot over the last hundred years. Christina hill as a professor of environmental planning at uc berkeley. We're standing on the edge of the bay where a high tide is coming in. Hill says sea level rise will make these tides even higher by as much as seven feet by twenty one hundred. But that's not the only problem there's also seawater in the soil under our feet the groundwater and as the c rises that to- of saltwater under the soil is gonna rise also

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

"Of Austin and we're talking about his new book beyond the valley off to Sunnyvale as promised gonna talk radio guy Hey ray okay thank you for waiting Hey if you ever meet thanks recall of relief I heard you mention how all of the social media platforms profit off of outrage couple months ago I started to realize how long was being led down the path to being having conflicts with people online and engagement was better if my you know put up differing opinions are just you know what five people have certain stuff I'm I'm wondering if you have any idea of the amount of money that Twitter particularly make off of a device of hashtags discovery within our example the girl I was seeing you know I have talked about police brutality and in the ads among this has tag was a movie about police brutality so I'm sort of this company and or the studio paid to be attacks that has tag in addition you know when Donald Trump says something you know crazy or stupid in this aspect related to it these often add a monk that that people had me grab on to latch on to and commit to participate in the outrage and I'm businesses sometimes introduce hash tags to so they're they're more released your thoughts on that I mean it's it's it's such a great points that absolutely these companies profit off of outrage they are able to you based on the research I was able to glean from from the stock I was able to identify ways in which semantically meaning it isn't even an explicit practice linking a particular ad campaign with something that someone says but actually induced out of a language analysis of the content that is posted with some sort of brand so basically brands are identified and sold based on whatever source of controversies in March but that's done computationally rather than explicitly by curator themselves so my point being that basically what we know gathers I mean the term the user's engagement we could use the term outrage we could use the term emotional arousal I use the term inflammatory but one thing we do you know and this is something much more fundamental about us as human beings is that you know crazy stuff gets our attention right like looking at car crashes or or you know sometimes very violent films and I don't I'm not trying to denigrate us as a as a human species we clearly linked somehow to our behavioral fight or flight mechanisms but we know that greater engagement which is all that matters to these companies greater engagement attention attention can turn into addiction and addiction and all of this involves a lot of release of dopamine in the brain we know that that's positively correlated with various forms of depression we know that we like the simulation of that but to much of it leaves us feeling very drained as far as the specific kind of monetary outcomes that come from no outrage and the profitability of outrage hard to know but yeah I one thing that is definitely worth looking at is the overall valuation of companies like Facebook in particular so you know we all know very well how much Flack Facebook gone after twenty sixteen because of the Russian example of the Cambridge analytica example and you know continues to get to this day I mean it seems like every couple months marceca burger shark shell Sandburg are paraded in front of Congress and they kind of just keep their heads down and say yes we hear you but actually if you look at what they're actually doing once they get that criticism it's a very very little they say Hey we're going to build better a I like what the heck does that mean yes we're going to be more you know it yet we're gonna you work with independent fact checkers but they don't tell us to those factors are and clearly those fact checkers are deciding that right pardon the daily caller a credible news sources and if you look at this and this is where I tied to your question the valuation of these companies has gone up not down overall while this whole process of the card because while they're getting public outrage and public flak from all of us their business models are more profitable than ever before and that's why there's a lot of different solutions and proposals that I put out in beyond the valley around how we can get you know we can get to a world that is more balanced when it comes to these issues I also want to make the point that I need to let you go with this plan I hate to do that when you're up against a news break thank you so much for the conversation I loved it I love joining you and I will be back soon and thank you all for having me so much today thank you so much for me is sort of Boston he is the author of the new book beyond the valley coming up on the other side of news we're gonna be talking about well what they still call Black Friday all that selling all that beating people up all that lining up when we still do this chip Franklin show I mention her here on KGO.

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

Hussein Fazal of Snap Travel on Working Hard With a Bit of Luck

"From Toronto Your Company Snapped Travel thanks for coming on the podcast figure for having me Yup you got a really interesting company I saw Steph curry was wearing a hat said your company's name in the finals after the game we'll get into that later in the pod but bullets let's start at the beginning of your career you know how do you start to become the person you are today we're when did that happen so I went to the University of Waterloo studied computer science graduated in to that has nine five and went straight into a big company so I worked for a Bell Canada which is one of the largest telecommunications company he's in Canada of course and I was working there as a software developer so they're kind of to a point in my life where I was not really happy working at a big company I was not feeling like I was accomplishing anything it just felt a little bit doc in a bit of a routine in a really wanted to do something else oh so what I started to do is started to just do some coding side project thanks so in two thousand eight I started to build facebook games so this is you know before a lot of people's time times but facebook wasn't on mobile was only desktop and people would build facebook games like Farmville was the most famous one right so sorry Oh facebook games on the side There was an intern who was also a bell Canada in also started to go facebook games on the side and then we started chatting and we said hey how will you make money off your facebook Games WanNa we build an ad network specifically for facebook games so that's how it started quitting Alabel my co-founder kristaps never went back to bell never went back to school and we started that company I'd Parlor in over three years he grew it to be one of the largest facebook ad optimization companies in the world managed over one hundred million dollars of ad spend and ended up selling that company years later well and it all started just with simple side project of building games that lived on facebook yeah I mean it was just it was just of doing something as a side Gig and it was the entrepeneurship curiosity in just kind of having fun with it and I mean you quickly realize once you start aside Gig especially if it starts to get some traction you'll very quickly realize how much more fun that is than your big company job in natural that I start spending evenings and weekends working on it and so just do this full-time right I was of course in a fortunate position not everyone's entitled Fortunate Position But I was an unfortunate that position that you know I was single I was living at home with my parents didn't have any major financial dependencies on it's all I got a mortgage kids or anything like that so I was able to take that risk I was able to say let me quit my job about let me do this fulltime in the worst case scenario of this doesn't work out they can always try and get another full time another full time job right I love it and we talk a lot on this podcast about just kind of the merits of I projects like there's the the upside is really limitless and the downside is pretty minimal I mean it's like you start testing something out you build a game like just something passionate if it works starts to show some signs of of working then great you can put a little more effort into it a little more resources but but if not then like you know there's nothing lost you can just tell society all your friends are like Oh yeah you know I didn't really spend much time on that it just it just wasn't for me it didn't work out but if it does work it's like this is the this could be something here yeah for sure I mean I I always tell people that like I mean if you're in a full time job you're the nine to five that's great light you should really only be in that job if you're actually learning in developing and you should always think about what you can do to learn and grow and outside of that job as well as after hours weekends I mean of course you could spend your time just hanging out watching TV doing what you need to do but William Order to make progress you should spend some of those evening weekend hours on whatever it is you're passionate about or side gigs in that's can unlock a great opportunity. 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

Her company was now AFL years old. She had an office employees, even though many of the apple recruits had left and a big mission to fulfill. What Elizabeth didn't have was the money to make it happen. She says she was considering at this point going out and doing an equity raise essentially trying to find new investors to buy her company the trouble with that was timing. This was in the midst of the great recession even companies that had been around for generations were struggling to get loans and many were going out of business. It was something I was covering regularly for CNBC like the day. Leman brothers went under could withstand the test of time through two world wars through the great depression.

"Linda from Sunnyvale, California. How are you? Good. Welcome to the program. How can I help? I have a question about my allocations for my 4._0._1._K. Because of my age say that I should be. I say sixty percent equity of forty percent. And my concern is going into bonds. Now right now, I'm too heavy in stocks with the rising interest rates. I wanted Europeans on that your opinion on that. So you mentioned that your allocate of sixty forty is due to your age. So I'm guessing you're ages sixty. Okay. Okay. And and and the reason I'm assuming that is that I hear this as well. I often hear people saying that you should have an allocation that is either your age, which why I guess if you're sixty percent stocks. You're sixty years old or I've heard people say that it should be one hundred minus your age, which would mean that if you're sixty one hundred sixty forty and you should therefore have forty percent of your money in stocks both of those truisms as they're referred to are not true. Both of them are silly. You should not be basing your asset allocation on your age what you should be basing it on is how much of a return do you need to get to achieve your financial goals. Let's say that you had a gazillion dollars. Then we could argue that money should be entirely and Bank accounts, where you're taking no investment risk of any kind and who cares about inflation. And who cares about taxes with a gazillion dollars? You got plenty of money to spend to buy whatever you. I need to buy and therefore rates of return. Don't really matter. Does that make sense? On the other hand. Let's say you don't have a gazillion dollars. Let's say you've only got five. Well, we could argue you might as well buy lottery tickets because you've got nothing to lose. Right. You know? And this this frankly explains why a lot of people do buy lottery tickets. They're not dumb.

Waymo gets green light for robot cars in California no humans needed

"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. The future of self driving cars says Waymo 's website forever since to apply as early writers. The company says Amazon is where it will. I offer a commercial robot taxi service, the company plans, a similar early writer program in California for people who live in its planned service area. But hasn't yet said when that will start.
