"It out All right Doug thank you so much So Kris there with a Bloomberg business news flash Gotta say I've been looking forward to catching up again with our next guest We're talking about grant for standing He is cofounder of red cell partners It's an investment firm backing disruptive tech lead companies in the healthcare also defense spaces Grant was chief of digital for UnitedHealth Group after founding and selling his company rally health to UnitedHealth Group's Optum unit Grand by the way was with me back in October at the milken global conference on a panel It was entitled bots bites and brains extending longevity through technology Really looking at the role of technology when it comes to healthcare and grant joins us from Aspen so good to be back with you How are you I'm doing well my friend is feels like yesterday we were together It does feel like yesterday Was good to have you here with Ed ludlow and myself First of all got lots to talk about but let's get to the news Tell us about zephyr AI what this is all about the significance of it Yes thank you So zephyr is really the first company that we spun out of red cell which as you mentioned is our investment and incubation efforts that really focus on disruptive change in healthcare and defense and a bit of an extension from our time at milken zephyr AI is really taking my experience with some incredible cofounders that I have Yes rob bremmer was the sort of chief analytics officer if you will of the DoD in charge of solving impossible problems and our CTO was my head of machine learning at rally And we just wanted to build a technology that was AI first and data second because and we talked about this a little bit in our panel There's just AI for everything and in healthcare right now many of them are science projects And so what differentiates us is we took publicly available data and wanted to build an AI and to see if we could use our AI to find unique or differentiate differentiated or novel insights into something that people hadn't seen before And just to give you a sense of how powerful the AI is in the sea of decades of publicly available data our first finding and we published it in a peer review journal within nature was you can use our machine learning and we found that azithromycin is actually and yes that is the antibiotic that we all have probably taken several times Can actually be a more efficacious drug for lung cancer than the average 5 chemo agents that are used for the specific cancer And so it's really how do we use this technology to find the right drug at the right place at the right patient and I think it's going to change the world by really bringing that AI and meets personalization into healthcare And that's what we've been missing Well and hang on a second I want to jump in and just to be fair and I highly recommend that everybody check out the panel that grant and others did with me at milk And this is all about the conversation dealt so much about and certainly grant's perspective of shifting our thinking away from that we've got to find a cure for things and a fix to really making strides to stay out of the hospital stand of doctor's office is really stay out of the healthcare system And grant that's what it's all about It's a real major rethink in terms of treatment So well said that's why you should do my job for me At the end of the day you'll get my bill You'll get my bill Fair enough It's nice to meet you but I'll give you a great example I mean when you are having a healthcare issue my guess is the only thing you think of is when you get on the other side of that healthcare issue You want to be a patient.

"Shown this plenty going on at the moment in the world of economics. Of course the labor before statistics are out today and the employment market is obviously critical to how the economy performs into next year by those habit of news around yesterday as well was michael the federal treasury just fraud and big was out saying that during the september quarter the economy probably contracted by about three percent now. Most market economists had already affected that in fact the international monetary fund had downgraded. Its growth forecast restricted this year for more than five percent to about three and a half percent though it has upgraded knicks g to about four point one percent mr fraud and beg also said that. Some of the large scale skills shortages that we're seeing in the economy at the moment with the result of state border clashes and he was confident they would ease knicks jia. Meanwhile the westpac mobile institute consumer confidence rating was out yesterday fell by one and a half percent but it still remains positive which isn't a bad if it given the lockdowns like business confidence consumer sentiment is holding up much better than it did last year in fact it hasn't gone negative at all during the past few months. Consumer confidence should rise as lockdowns. Ain't and of course we'll have all the information on the labor force data this afternoon in the afternoon report and plenty more analysis tomorrow morning as well moving away from the economy. They really is a sense. Shown that the country is starting to get on. Top of the corona virus crosses notwithstanding. Of course there's still plenty of daily cases and those numbers. We've been warned about this and warned about it again and again that the numbers are going to surge. The more the economy is opened up. I totally agree with himachal. And i think that was highlighted. Yesterday by daniel andrews getting more questions about the back inquiry in how much he knew about branch stacking rather than covered queries victorian premier said. The state was on track to reach. It's seventy percent vaccination target ahead of schedule. And mr andrews will give clarity on what next week looks like in the next couple of days. There are still one thousand five hundred seventy-one cases in the state yesterday in thirteen dates. Now the new south wales government has revised the isolation period for close context from fourteen days to seven days for people who've been fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to their exposure to the virus. Great news for that stipe. South wales recorded arising cases yesterday to four hundred forty four and four ditz. At least the numbers. The world down on a week ago in the full inoculation right is heading towards seventy seven percent premium. Dominic perithai's expected roy moore information about further reopenings in new south wales in the next forty eight hours. Aside the say take government will mandate vaccinations in several education settings including early childhood primary in out of school care. Of course there. The groups will be unvaccinated for the longest cambridge reported fifty one new cases yesterday close to its worst ice alpha. And finally the northern territory announced all frontline workers must be vaccinated and heath i received the first vaccination by thursday november. They could be fined. Five thousand dollars.

"Crazy. And that's that's the position of starting from so even in my role today. A large part of it has been starting off the conversation by is in different myths in showing order some actual examples. Um that people use in their everyday life that have the underpinnings of of data size of machine learning. That was a really great answer. You know. I know that there's always different barriers and so it's at your perspective on it and you know they can. They can be a broad range of things kind of following up on that you know looking into your crystal ball What do you believe the future of. Ai is in general and its application to organizations and beyond. I think is going to be in everything that we do and many of us aren't even going to know that it's there so for example. Even even sedated. You're using your iphone. Your your type seen somebody. You're you're as you're taking your words your iphones trying to predict which words that you're gonna be typing in. While that is using a awestruck which is using different machine learning over you up make nixon now too. They have no idea. it's doing that. They just see that. Oh yeah this is pretty cool. I can type faster is helping the credentials but to somebody who is in the data science field. They know they know the underpinnings. They know how something like that was created. So i see that becoming a huge part of our everyday life especially the future. I think one of the one of the challenges from an ethics standpoint is do we as a society want to. You know have hard and fast rules of when a guy can be used versus when it should be used and that's something that i've been very interested in poker stand on even healthcare fascinating. How is going to be used in society in. It's something where. I think there has to be some type of guardrails. Because will be found is that i can actually mega by many of the devices that we have as human society on something that has been focused on enough just because this is such a new and emerging discipline. Yeah for sure and you know. Obviously we're still exploring sort of the breadth of which how and how can be applied in machine learning and all the patterns of that we talk about all the time you know. Here in our podcast. You know whether it's the conversational pattern recognition. Predictive analytics patterns anomaly detection auto Autonomous systems hyper personalization goal driven systems. You could think there's a ton of different ways almost an infant number ways that these patterns can be implemented in shirley. We're going to be talking about them all here on this today. Podcast and interviewing folks like yulon here who are giving us insight into all these various different ways in which is being put into practice and also some of the considerations this time around. We're we're thinking about some of the considerations around team building and growing data science both the practice and discipline and is a role. And i think it's really important for our listeners to be hearing this because the markets do evolve things do change the year. Twenty twenty one that we're in today is very different than the twenty twenty is very different than the year. Two thousand nineteen. There's been three three so far three very interesting years. Only about a quarter of the way through Twenty twenty one. So i think you know continuing to listen to these perspectives listening to something you know. Say in two thousand eighteen and thinking that still relevant twenty twenty or two thousand twenty. One may not be true so this is part of the reason why we have folks like alon here. Contributing and sharing their insights. So i really do want to thank you so much for joining us here on. Am today podcast.

"That's a great question When i think about skills like the specific skill set that. I'm looking for with any data. Scientists you need a stronger stronger technical skills and their ability to use different types of of languages I would say you know what i look for. Specifically and this may vary company. a company Many data scientists are python experts We found that using the python ecosystem. it is really easy to do is easy to scale up. And it's also a full service programming language and their ton of different packages and libraries out. There that are python specific for machine learning In i would say outside of that so outside of the technical skills and the math skills. What i really look for. Things like curiosity so having having it innate curiosity as data scientists in. I don't know if that's something that can that can be taught or even coached I think it people either have it or or they don't So i when when i brought people on or l look for some of their past projects i'll look to see if they have their own portfolio If they're contributing to two different open source projects because that really shows me that they have not only the passion of the curiosity to keep learning to keep bettering their skills and in a in an industry like machine. Learning things are changing almost every day So the really gets data. Scientists are always trying to figure out what one of the new techniques. How can it better. My skill set The other skill look for is cultural. Fits and i've i've found that this is also extremely important. You can have sites that you wanted to bring to the teague. Dump person doesn't fit well within a culture of the team and even cultural values of the company on me as a leader would be setting them up for failure. And that's that's not something. I wanted to do Data science isn't just a kind of individuals orderly as a teams or and having to data scientists with the ability to were on the team in the work with leaders. Might not be technically savvy. You may not have that background. It is really key to us. Yeah that's really interesting. You know we've been keeping an eye out on sort of the growth of data science both as a practice and a role but also as a job category as a role because we keep track of these things as well as data engineering and data analysis and machine learning engineers and the whole you know ecosystem of folks out there and you know we've actually been seeing some really interesting trends lately in the growth of data scientists a career and actually starting see some into some some possibly that data sciences. A career may actually be plateauing in terms of overall hiring. I don't know it might be a factor of You know to sort of this last year. Twenty twenty has been kind of weird year and maybe that is frozen. A lot of companies hiring plans in general but we are definitely keeping an eye. That certainly the need for data science and data engineering as sort of a role in a function isn't going to go away even if even if sort of hiring has slowed for those positions will see although data engineering. Supposedly hiring is going gangbusters. So you know maybe you could talk about that but but also you know just in general you know. What do you see as barriers to adoption of machine learning and more advanced forms of ai. I you know Is it data science skills and or is it like something else. I think it's a good point that you made With with just hiring people and with the who data sciences. I think for People both within our organization as well as externally and a mind that it's good to have that type of next turns if you only hire people internally you might not get those those differentiated perspectives and that that drinking Also found that taking people both within healthcare in from other industries and that can actually just fascinating. Because i mean were either new health care another industry they really think about healthcare very differently than someone who has five or ten years you can also spur creativity and great discussions in the when it comes to the role of data scientists. I would say it's changed pretty significantly less five years and as i look forward you know maybe next five to ten years i think run. You mentioned data engineering. I've seen as that. That's segments of it really taking off because there's more data than anybody could ever hearing. Peace really comes flavia somebody process to you or can you be so that so sector data silence that is really seeing growth. And then there's also the The usage of these autodial arms that are being able to. Today's science did signs without even knowing which is kind of I think that's going to become a lot more important as well going forward. Because there has been such shortage evita's assists another another in terms of barriers to to data science or even just adoption the once again just stretch of inside the culture and i think one of the things that i've seen in different companies in talking with here. Is that unless you have. That data signs. I had culture is learned cheryl jean to accessible through initiative so i think in a traditional business during you have a a beginning a middle inter projects and the way that many projects are funded. Is you know people either. Sitting room will do a roadshow it. It's almost like a owning procedure or the highs level. There makes the student in one project x two projects you know to the exclusivity own in with dana sign. Specific projects is not necessarily easy to identify which ones actually have successively outside. It's very similar to how venture capitalists will pick on companies and maybe one or two of them will actually get down there hundred thousand x return. davis is projects work very similarly to that and i think that can bevan throw. Y- professional management structure of companies and just how companies are used to doing business. So that's the challenge. Many companies on. I think the other barrier is just all of the the high around. They designs very often. Ca notice.

"Today was actually more than ten years ago to get into science at do a lot of that work on my own hired more data scientists along with just learning learning prevent irene very talented very hard. Well that sounds great. I know maybe just before. He started swinging to the to the first question here about you know trying to dig a little bit deeper. We have a very international audience and maybe may not be familiar with united health. Group is a organization. Even i know they're gigantic here. The united states or maybe you can talk just briefly about how about the organization kind of sort of what you do and sort of the scope of the things that you do the health care. Bill is the global company out there over three hundred thousand employees across the globe in and presence in countries continents. Not only north america also America europe asia In terms of the business itself so there there's always areas help your team focused a bigger space so predominantly patients who are older As well as patients under sixty five how different cities also with more of the commercial insurance space as well as some external facing consulting services. So there's definitely a lot going on within the company and while they're are things that i cool we'll start diving a little bit deeper into this You know you're presenting at our recent machine. Learning life cycle conference and i really encourage our listeners to go to emily life cycle comp dot com. Check it out. Most of the sessions actually. All the sessions are still available though we keep them up for several months and you may notice actually we have made some some pretty significant changes to our events site by the way so. Hopefully you're enjoying that. We're trying to make it much easier to consume a session content across all the various communities that we run. And i just want to also note that are machine. Learning life cycle conference which was like a three day conference january twenty sixth through twenty eighth twenty. Twenty one is becoming now. A regular monthly events series so that we can sort of keep this going. We haven't yet announced the next community event and if you are interested in participating either as a sponsor or as a speaker although we have a really great list of speakers but reach out to us you know send us a message. At info i n. f. o. at cognreznick co g. I l. y. Ti dot com. If you're interested we'd love to. Have you participate but at the last conference. Alon one of our presenters and he gave a fantastic talk on leading data scientists. The right way so for our listeners. Who haven't yet maybe senior session and maybe might want to. Maybe you could tell us a little bit about what you talked about during that session and some some key insights so with with the session i titled leading data scientists. The right way which obviously is g. They're probably hundreds of thousands of different ways to data scientists effectively and the Presentation was to external. There is this leader. Ed especially people who might not be as as technical it was released. Show the ins the house of what it takes to lead data scientists and and how you can hurt moore and just barberie productive we. My other goal was also known to dispel some of the myths that that people think about One of those mis leading scientists working on his own. It's really the technical Even the technology or the languages that can that can trip up project and that can make it more difficult and what. I've actually found in my experience and begin with my peers across the industry. Is that any type of enterprise level. I can really get tripped up by challenges with the culture challenges with with communication and then just in general And i think about something that many of us don't believe in about as much So that's that's i think one of the one of the key takeaways that People got from the presentation in the other the other key takeaway was just around. What a data scientist actually does what their backgrounds look like. I think that Especially with people who are nontechnical they think of data science as another auto of ide- for instance union could not be more different. It's a good analogy is saying that in sales and marketing are identical. Because they're both business fields. So i think i was able to to really go through and kind of unpack the skill sets of scientists and engineers. What they really need to on their career so that was another one. I know i had received a lot of questions throughout the presentation. In i would say that the last takeaway was just on what it takes to really make. Enterprise projects or initiatives successful in one key takeaways from that was have been any initiative or or any ideas in buried use case focus so having an idea of how loosening or technique in the us and really opponent ford's whether it's revenue order using risk than having the very up combs and metrix. That's great you know. i think you're right. People at an organization sometimes overlook that you know people aspect of things and i think that You know sometimes cultural changes. They can be quite difficult. So those were some great takeaways. I know that that was a very well received presentation so if our listeners did not get a chance to check it out you definitely can it. you know the machine learning life cycle conference and it cardinal linda we for the past few years have done training on artificial intelligence in education. Really we do at both public and private sector organizations so you know some themes that we constantly get our You know around during. So what are some of the key traits that you look for when you're hiring data scientists and or you looking internally or externally in the organization so hiring internally or trying to upskill and reskill people that you have that's.

"Back to what you were saying. You guys remove ice dams. You guys, what else? So we do ice dam removal, and then we were talking about, you know, before the show we wash now this isn't a home thing. It's more of a commercial property thing. But we wash really big parking lot and send smaller ones, too. So we'll do though the underground garage in your condor or townhouse area, But then we do huge stuff for like the U of M and UnitedHealth. That sort of thing. You know, my guy that works for me. We did seven million square feet of parking garages, and that's just scratching the surface. So we do that, anyway. So then that you know water again, You know it's being brought into These parking lots and this concrete. If you don't get that salt out of there, it's going to destroy that concrete. It's gonna fail in these parking garages. They're expensive to build. And if it's perf for pay, they are extremely profitable. So you're hearing that right here? It's not just home improvement. Our it's building and concrete improvement. Our if you are a business owner, building owner or you are a manager of a property and you maintain these large concrete structures. Remember what that salt is doing? And remember that you have a solution in roof to deck. It'll come out and take care of that. Yeah, Just it amazed me, because if you put together the different services that you guys do from cleaning homes to cleaning rooms to cleaning out gutters somewhere, the Christmas lights get thrown in there. That's a little kind of. Ah, a second off Channel offshoot doesn't really relate completely. But I like that. It's cool because you guys are already you have the equipment to do it. Well, Okay, see, that's what makes it interesting, so people We just had a meeting with a company that builds senior living places. And they you know it was, you know, was one of those meetings where they're like, Wow, You guys really have this interesting breath thing, and it all comes.

Her name is. Dr Bernard Zurich. She's an expert on planning and measuring and well-being progress and happiness particularly how to incorporate those things into strategy and policy for the public the private and the third it sector she was the chief scientist and Co founder of be better a data analytics startup. That I think recently got sold she holds a PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. And she has done research at Ucla in London and she's also teaching right now in the government government in sustainability program at IDC in Hats Liam in L. and also at the NBA program at the Academic College of Tel Beef Jeff Oh. She's a consultant to international organizations NGOs governance businesses on how to apply well being into strategy. The end she's a passionate advocate for using wellbeing indicators. To better plan success there was a long introduction. But you're doing a lot of things. Welcome to the show Anna. Thank you so much. It's such a pleasure to be here. Great so let's start off with a definition when we're talking about well being what exactly do you mean with that. That's a very good question and a very tricky question as well. I think the main point is that wellbeing fares from being happy important as it is or from being healthy important as that is or being safe having proper infrastructure and other aspects of life that we all need to have. I think it's beyond the what we would like to have. It is an additional layer to that. But I'd say that well being is having what you need in different life domains that every person needs and also attaining the possibility to prosper roster. So it's having those basic things that you need in life but also having possibilities to prosper so it's more than just being healthy is that absolutely I mean how many people are perfectly healthy but not happy or do not have a job or which is extremely important important for wellbeing to give one example or feel that something in their lives is not going as they had planned. It's becoming I think. More and more common knowledge stat. Health is only one aspect of wellbeing probably. Most people would agree. That being well is something that is very important to oneself personally smelly to the family and so on and so forth but why do you say that this actually a wider topic for society. It is important for governments and it is also important for businesses. This is why should businesses even care about how well someone is. We've come a long way from thinking that we understand everything. Let's start with that. Yeah I mean we used to have indicators or proxies a ways of understanding the market that are becoming more and more I thought I I don't know if I dare say you. Relevant but if you aspire as a strategy only to increase growth for your company but you neglect to you think about the well being of your employees you have a problem. And if as a country you aspiring for higher GDP Ross domestic products in neglect to think about how that GDP spreads across different populations how it's spreading across health and education and and again infrastructure and safety and other aspects of life. which are important for everybody? Then you have a very big problem. And when looking at policies I mean look at these descended navien countries I think they are a wonderful example for countries who acknowledged to start with that. The fixation station on economic growth could be harmful because as every fixation it's only a fraction of what is really important in life and so they are a great example of countries who said yes. Economic growth is wonderful. It's a great strategy position but it's not everything well being is everything so it's how we spread that economic growth across the nation and et Cetera et Cetera. And that's just one example from the policies. Fear I think that we see more and more of wellbeing strategy towards different markets. You gave this long introduction and I am going to add one layer to it. I recently joined a company named meant M. E. N. T. meant dot. Io and it has a product and the product is a discussion platform. It's an a that formed that reads discussions and gives you smart on the lyrics it reads discussions and it gives you smart analytics to make better decisions now. Does well being fall into that picture. Every every product that we see nowadays needs to or is already considering your wellbeing as the customer. It's not even employees. He's anymore it has moved from policy to strategy towards employees towards. Let's think about the customer in these terms. It's not just just about what they buy. It's about whether what they buy serves their wellbeing. So that's a lot of information capsulated into one answer but it's just to give you the the The gist of things. I guess yes. Thank you very much. We'll break it up for listeners. A little bit more in the cost of this podcast before we get. I want to move on to something different because I like to have like the personal motivation of people. So why are you so interested in this topic wellbeing. And how did you originally get involved in it. When I started studying I somehow knew I wanted to study political science and I somehow knew that things that is most fascinating to me is? How do we know that society is progressing? How do we know what progress is? I was sitting in different classes on ideologies. It all started from ideologies. Geology and I heard these fascinating topics than I was reading mark's and I was reading other philosophers who wrote about the perfect Utopian future that you could get to if you would only do things right and they all seemed like love stories to me that there was such a huge gap between these beautiful stories and how they rolled in reality think of the Soviet Union it was anything in but they Marxist vision and it's the same for fascism and it's the same for liberalism none of them rolled out to be what the original Lil thinkers of philosophy had in mind and so it really bothered me and so I found myself delving deeper and deeper into okay. Okay so how do we know if we're headed in the right direction towards a you Tokyo towards a complete disaster. How do we know and I found me so In a journey with lots and lots of other fascinating really smart people from around the world busy with especially with policy especially Louis Policy issues of. How do we know that the country is actually going where he wanted to go to me started in academia and I think it's it's kind of a reflection of how it rolled out across the world so it turns out to be that starts with academia with scholars? who asked very good questions Quality of life questions while being questions within philosophy within psychology within sociology economics was kind of lagging behind but it was all asking these questions and then he moved to the realm of policy. So I moved with it to around policy working with the OECD. On fine with others callers around the world and since then it had moved to strategy into corporates but yeah I think for me. It's always about. How do we know that we're I'm doing better? That's the gist of it really. Let's talk a little bit of art. The sphere of public policy. Because I think they're the topic of wellbeing has been Discussed or is being discussed for quite some time. It's maybe a bit newer in the world of business so I'll go to ask you the question that always comes up on A. How is this any better other than traditional measures such as GDP per capita for example? Or others aren't they in the end very much correlated in the sense that more. GDP means better wellbeing so that we don't really need any other indicators and so on and so forth what would you say to these kinds of criticisms that usually leveled at any sort of discussion discussion about wellbeing. Well I'll start with the assault with a short answer which is. GDP doesn't always correlate with other measures. So we see how the United States eight is. Life expectancy rates are actually decreasing actually in a worse state than it used to be. It's a recent development it is happening because the investment of what. GDP bringing is not being spread across the health system in a way that keeps life expectancy in its best best state and even growing. We sit in health but we also see it in other things as well. I mean there are two aspects to criticisms regarding regarding the GDP one is the GDP doesn't read account what it's supposed to count even in that area. It's very problematic so it counts everything that we buy. It doesn't care whether I buy something. That is positive for me and he's tracing my wellbeing or that is negative for me. I don't know if I have to buy water because the water in attacker offer not good enough. Then that's good for the GDP. It's very bad for me and not to mention crime. That is very positive for the GDP. It's very bad for people's also Wellbeing and so on and so forth the second type of argument is that how can we only look at money. As if it's the the only thing that tells us something about our lines there's something seriously wrong with that perception because it's not correlated with everything that we care about. It doesn't care at all whether I spend time with my children and I could have so much money and ward from day to night and never see my kids and so how does the GDP in that way indicate anything about my wellbeing. Isn't that in the end. Matter of personal choice. For example I mean and the individual you could theoretically decide whether they want more money or spend more time with their key. People Might WanNa get filthy rich. Others may WANNA spend more more time with friends and family. I wish it was. I don't think we live in an ecosystem that enables so much choice. There isn't as much much choice as we'd like to think the new liberal conception of I decide my own faith in I decide I mean even goes as far as you can be happy happy regardless of the circumstances you live in now. That's true to some extent. I mean you could live in a extreme poverty and still be happy it is possible. I think we would all agree. It's not advisable and so the circumstances in which you live determined quite a lot of how how you conduct yourself in life and there's a whole industry of happiness trying to argue towards the amount of choice that we have within how happy we are but we cannot neglect and this is a policy question from head to toe cannot neglect the circumstances in which we live in. And it's very difficult to get to a position where you can choose your job and you could choose.
