"This is Colonel Dana Gillum. This is the final formation for this hour on front lines of freedom. We're continuing our conversation with Steve Kirby on Islam in America. Steve. We're about to get to looking at specific conflict between Islamic law and doctrine, and the Constitution is they don't want to cover before we get there. No, we can jump right into that. Okay, Let's talk about that conflict. Because we have tohave elected officials who will actually honestly support and defend the constitution. So let's talk about the Constitution. Talking. And as I mentioned in the first statement, I'd live this last week about the question I sent out asking Muslim public officials and candidates to choose between freedom of expression and the Islamic doctrinal prohibition. Criticism of Mohammed And we can focus on the freedom of speech that our Constitution guarantees but is forbidden by Islamic doctor and this started out in your early days of this. In 6 24 to be exact when Mohammed was consolidated news power in Medina, and he started ordering the killing of bullets and individuals who had criticized him. And I'll give you a good example. Jewish Port calm Minallah Schroth had criticized Mohammed Mohammed ordered him to be killed in combat skill, and it caused a lot of consternation in the Jewish community. So they came to Mohammed and said, Hey, what happened right here. Here's the key words of foot. Mohammed said he's stalking Mark Cobb. He says if he cub had remained as others of similar opinion remained You would not have been killed treacherously. But he heard us and insulted us with poetry. And one does not do this among you, but he should be put to the sword. This set the standard for criticizing of Mohammed. A lot of people might be think. Well, Gina was back in seventh century. It means nothing now. Absolutely wrong. Let's jump to 2005 Danish cartoon situation. A Danish newspaper published cartoons ridiculing Mohammed. It caused riots in the Middle East people were killed. And Kurt Vestergaard, the artist who did this had repeated attempts on his life because he criticized made ridiculed Mohammed. Now in 2009. If you think all that was that was in Denmark, it still big deal 2009. A book came out about the cartoons and the title was the cartoons that shook the world and it was published here in the United States by Yale University Press. The kicker is Yale University Press said. We'll publish the book. But it can include any of the Danish cartoons or any other illustrations of Mohammed. The author reluctantly agreed to publishing the book, So the title is the cartoons that shook the world. There's no cartoons in it at all, and it's interesting because John Donne a Titch, the director of Yale University, Press, said this, he said the decision to exclude the cartoons and illustrations of Mohammed was difficult. But he said, when it came between that and blood on my hands There was no question Yale University Press, acknowledged Islamic doctor a prohibition and criticizing Mohammed right here in the United States. 2010 Southfork, the satirical cartoon series. They were gonna have a serious for Mohammed appeared dressed as a bear. They received threats from a group called Revolution Muslim. And they took that sequence out later that year. A lot of people don't know about this mauling Norse editorial cartoons for the Seattle weekly because of what happened with self part, she said, You know, some I'm gonna having everybody draw Mohammed and it was publicized. She immediately started getting death threats. Finally, on the advice of the FBI, Molly Norris went into hiding. Change. Your name completely disappeared. This was in 2010. Molly Norris has not appeared again and bring in a 2015 Robert Spencer. Pamela Geller hosted a Muslim art exhibit and contest in Garland, Texas, were drawings of Mohammed or judge. Two heavily armed Muslims came driving up. They're going to shoot the place up. Fortunately, a police officer engaged them. Shot most of them and into the writer, But the bottom line is even here in the United States. Islam does not allow freedom of speech, especially about Mohammed. So this is something we need very concerned about. Wow. It certainly is. I had heard about a few of those. I hadn't put them all together till you just did that. This is kind of funny. Dylan from lots of freedom. We're talking Islam in America with Steve Kirby. Steve, that is really violation. I mean, the First Amendment to our Constitution, our listeners apartment read hundreds of times says. Freedom of press freedom of speech. Congress shall make no law abridging an establishment of religion for every the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or of the right of people to peacefully assemble to petition Congress if you can't Have a public art drawing. You can't publish a book that's a violent constitution. And if you can't do it, well, it is And you know what makes earth Wow you know, and we'll make it even worse, like Molly Norris. Here is a journalist who received threat. Because she was gonna happen. Everybody draw Mohammadi, and she's disappeared Spin since 2010 she's disappeared. There was virtually no coverage in the American media about a journalist having to disappear because of threats. Because of the threats because that journalists want to exercise The First Amendment. Can you imagine if, say, a right wing group and spreading a journalist? Oh, don't draw pictures of so And so we're going to attack you. The media in the United States would be in screaming and yelling about First Amendment right? When it comes this one. Even the US media knows the rules. Wow. And what you're saying is true. All you gotta do is think about what's been covered What hasn't been covered? Can. It's not surprising to those who pay attention of the media that they Are very, very selective in the really news if they cover Wow, that's scary. As we wind up for today. We've got a couple of more minutes talk to us about where we're going next week. Well next week. Maybe we could continue just a little bit on Islamic doctrine conflicts mother aspects of U. S Constitution. But what I'd like to do is really talk about some concepts that are important to understanding this. Once you understand these concepts, it'll give you a better perspective, even really a better understanding of Islamic doctrine. Well and troops. I hope you understand that we are to be politically correct here or to throw rocks at anybody, but to make it clear that this is a potential threat. And certainly there's an indication that many of the candidates are not Three to whether it's because they can't or won't but they haven't responded to his survey. This is something that's scary. And that's why I wanted here. Group. This is the second of three interviews were doing with Steve. He'll be joining us again next week. Steve. Thank you. Thank you for taking time to join us today. Thank you for your concern for our nation's Thank you for your service to our nation in law enforcement..

How The Consensus Voting Mechanism Works
"So my name is Mush. Pot. Suzuki like the car last year a student at Yale University in Computer Science and mathematics and I'm supervised by Adrian Vata and from goalie. I'm very happy to be here and thank you for inviting me. I got exposed to your work. When I read the paper, I invited you to come on and talk about mostly today is how many freemasons are there consensus voting mechanisms in metric space so no less than three interesting ideas for me in the title maybe we should give some background to open up with consensus. What does that mean is that? Just the majority or how will we be using the word today? Consensus mechanism is Mecca Zeman which to select a candidate they're only if everyone agrees on it for instance, they said you're running for some group Peter, you get accepted only if everyone in the group agrees on it and you want you accepted otherwise. so that's like unanimity the Neha in here. Yeah. It's basically the same as unanimity but in different. Settings. Unanimity also implies that it's a property where you have if everyone agrees on that, you accept it but something can happen. If you know, let's say you can use different rules otherwise there's a different sort distinctions there, but it's basically the same as unanimity that particular choice leads to some interesting things and you guys are presented this really concise analogy to the freemasons. Well, I suppose getting down to the actual counter freemasons trying to conduct a census here that just formalizes. A funny title to give because as you know that freemasons are interesting sort of group there. Member only if everyone agrees on sort of it, fits our mechanisms today run their group through consensus voting Gotcha so it wouldn't surprise me if just given how much sort of folklore the surrounds the freemasons that there might be at least a few listeners confused about whether or not there are real organization. Could you throw a few facts Edis? have. Amazing temples in Montreal, phrases, I live in Montreal. So they have a huge temple here and they're very active and I don't know too much about their inner workings or I've never been inside the doors but they're very oh yeah you can go to their building for instance so real organization and in terms of getting accepted into it if I wanted to go in that building up there in. Montreal is this the actual mechanism they literally use or is this a sort of an analogy? So I don't know this for sure but I heard I read online that in order to get accepted that everyone in taboo are everyone in that group has agree on it. So is the medicine that they actually use. Cool. Well, I guess whenever that started it wouldn't be surprising that it could grow quickly. Right, if I was thinking of starting my own such organization and I I, invited my wife. Now we have two members and perhaps she and I can agree her sister joins and my sister joins. But at some point, someone's going to say no to the next member what can we learn about that and how do we study it? What are the interesting Totta questions? So you have two different settings. Here. So wondering is not remodeled people's opinions and you say I prefer my wife says I prefer my daughter you know or or so and so forth we need to the preferences of people. So one of the classic ideas in voting theory and actually just modeling through machine learning or any sort of the setting is this prioritizing people's opinion or privatizing people. So for instance, let's say you could be. Leaning like the political left or right. There's a spectrum for which you are lighted. Let's sure you can be at the centre or you could be very right thing or it could be a very level. So we can model that as any number between minus one and one, but two one being the right-wing minus one being the left-wing. So then that's one example of how you prioritize people right? Because you wanted to this rigorously and mathematically. So we need a method to represent people and our model is at. ISSUE, have this in which you represent urine. You couldn't space in some point. Is You your opinion and you vote for someone who similar to? Let's say you're very right wing than some candidate comes in then you're more likely to vote for someone who is right being than left-wing to someone who is closer to you in opinion or characteristic that's our model of but this question was asked actually before in one emissions but in one dimension. So you're basically just have an inch between minus one and one, and this was an extra Unin by very famous. Nogal. Yes. Paper in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, fourteen I forget. But we did this in higher dimensions in actually specifically two dimensions because it introduces so much more complexity when you go up in a dimension, right so Francis, why do we need higher dimensions is because before you you're presenting people left and right but people are more complex than that. You can't just represent a person by just one number for instance you. have to use multiple features as people say. So you have this multiple characteristics of people and they become dimension. So we do this in two missions surprisingly the mathematical difficulty of asking this question John Huge becomes actually much more difficult in two dimension than one dish very interesting and I guess maybe the answers grounded in a lot of details. But is there an essence to what that challenges is it that there are more simulations or? Is there a complexity theory aspect of this? Why is a two dimension so much more difficult than one so for instance, if you look at random shape, you can characterize this voting as looking at something called random convex or some random shapes. The question bows down on understanding certain random shapes and here assuming that the candidates are appearing. Let's say uniformly at on interval you have existing group members and she accepts somebody then he becomes. Group member and you evolve. So the candidates are uniform at each time step and so to answer the question we knew looking at this sort of random judge shapes in one dimension there's only one shape is just an interval intimate conviction in one dimension is just an interval. Some number between attack could be minus zero point five to zero point one is, but let's say you go into the mission all of a sudden there's so Many different shapes so many different things second happen if the shape is convinced or even just not convex in two dimensions does different more complex shapes can get in one mission. You only have interested in two dimensions you have gone as you have China goals, you have something that approximates your face even that could be shade in two missions, but that's not going to happen in Wand mission

New Saliva-Based COVID-19 Test Could Be a Fast and Cheap 'Game Changer'
"A potential breakthrough in the battle against covid nineteen, the FDA, just granting emergency approval, for Corona, virus saliva test calling it testing innovation game changer this test which is simpler cheaper and less invasive than naval swabs was developed by Yale University researchers. It's been used by the NBA and could greatly help expand testing capacity joining us right now is an Wiley. She is associate research scientist with Yale School of Public Health, which helped develop this new tests and it's great to see you. Thank you for being with us this morning. And Hugh morning. So this is incredibly exciting the idea that you could do the saliva test that it could be cheap and readily available How does it work? Actually, quite simple really. It's as the name suggests that we you've seen saliva as the sample time. And what we're trying to do is get away from that swamp. That's that can you know there's been quite a bit of the vision to the swamp time and we're hoping to get around supply chain issues that we've been saying with the swamps and we also Greenie. Fancy. Collection Devices to help ourselves down and so was actually also quite a make about it unique about is that we haven't actually developed a taste that we just packed up out to you. So you next one of these tests but what we've? What we've developed is the mythic full the taste recipe you could say and we're able to she had this taste with other labs for them to get this method often running in their labs. As. Tasted south with actually adapted the white commonly used piece the artist which takes the virus are a but we've done is removed the most expensive stiff of that replacing with a more simple workup, which again house is down at work though I mean if it still requires a lab to put together, you deliver it to me and then what I drive to the lab, and then how long does it take for me to get my results back? So indeed much psych you know what you're doing at the moment with a swap. So the swap is being ordered for your doctoral with A. Is million schools where you have like a little booth, we your saliva sample and had that taken to the lab and so taking out that was time consuming our in that results Ruby available Asta. You know this isn't one of those that will teach broken about you know we can get. Results, sorted through in about three hours about ninety two samples. But of course, depending on the through the lab is experiencing. You know this isn't to say that results will be available in three hours but just that it's a slightly faster protocol means that labs pamphlets room autistic day. So we do that. We can't see many in some situations. Same Day results if what we're really striving for us to get below that twenty, our timeframe that we're just not seeing. At the moment how much does this test cost I? Believe I've read that that nobody is looking to really make any money on this they're trying to put this out there and make sure it's available at the lowest cost. Possible. That's exactly right. So and we're being very very open about let's should be ambushed at expecting the regions cost and how much the people can speak in the. Cost and that's because the reagents of the chemicals that make up the test opinion that companies getting them from the only cost somewhere between one and four dollars for the reagents. That's just the reagents attest. We do know that there is a markups said, GonNa go onto this such as you know to. The logistics of giving the taste of personnel to run the also just you know they need to pay for the facilities that. Do those tests but. Is that that was still trying to limit that labs charge. So we do want this to be as cheap as possible society and went our you're part of compensation. How much I charge in China Steve Down.
The FDA Authorizes a Cheap, Fast Saliva Test, and the NBA Is Involved
"The FDA on Saturday issuing an emergency use authorization for the new saliva Direct Corona virus test developed by the Yale University School of Public Health and the National Basketball Association. The test processes saliva samples to rapidly determine whether a person is infected with the Corona virus and does not need any swab or other specific collection device. The new test is also far cheaper than current tests costing about $4. There's a test for materials before any added labor cost. That price and a quick turnaround time could help encourage more frequent covert 19 testing in settings like schools, universities and office buildings. All Steven's Fox

Yale Researchers Seek FDA Approval For Coronavirus Saliva Test
"Delays delays continue continue to to hamper hamper efforts efforts to to quickly quickly identify identify people people infected infected with with the the Corona Corona virus. virus. There's a push for cheaper, faster tests. NPR's Alison Aubrey reports on a new saliva test developed by researchers at Yale University who are awaiting emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration. If you've been tested for Corona virus, you may have experienced the sting of a swab being inserted deep into your nasal passages. But there is a less invasive way of testing that involves spitting into a cup or tube. Nathan grew Paws, an assistant professor of epidemiology and microbial diseases at the Yale School of Public Health. Early in the pandemic, he started comparing saliva samples to the swab samples from patients who were hospitalized with the virus. We were finding To our surprise, really more virus in the saliva. Then we were in the swamps and also we could detect it from the same patients more consistently. The challenge has been to develop a test that won't be subject to supply chain snags and Khun deliver results faster and cheaper. So what group on his colleagues have designed is a streamlined diagnostic test that uses heat to break open the virus. We get rid of the most cumbersome step, which is extracting and Play a passive and we replace that with something really simple. You Adam ends. I heated up. She lose the most expensive step in the most time consuming and most skilled group says this cuts down on the labor costs and with people taking their own saliva samples, it could reduce the cost of the health care system to collect the samples. He estimates will cost somewhere between $1.4 dollars plus labor to do a test and with emergency use authorization from the FDA commercial labs could license the Yale test. We're not a
Colleges plan for virus testing, but strategies vary widely
"Dozens of U. S. Colleges are announcing plans to test students for the Corona virus this fall. But their strategies vary widely. Colby College in Maine plans to test all students every other day for two weeks. And then twice a week. Harvard University will test students on campus three times a week. But some plan to test students on ly if they show symptoms or come into contact with a positive case. Federal health officials discourage widespread testing and college campuses. But researchers at Cornell and Yale University's say that without widespread testing covert 19 could be spread by infected students who don't show symptoms.
'Silent spreaders' may be responsible for half of Covid-19 cases, study finds
"New Study out of Yale, says it. Half the coronavirus cases half could be caused by so-called silence spreaders, people were symtomatic or those who are pre symptomatic. The study suggests that the onset of the virus may be the most contagious in that pre-symptomatic stage, which researcher says uncommon for respiratory infection and one of the CO authors of the fascinating study outs and Galvani Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling Analysis at Yale University professor. Thanks so much for being with us. Can you walk us through what your research because I for a lot of us? It's pretty frightening to think that that a majority people might have the virus be transmitting it without even knowing it. Thank you for inviting me Anderson. So. Of covid nineteen is that the peak of infectiousness occurs during the recent dramatic phases. You just summarize by translating clinical data on viral load and symptoms to population level epidemological impact. We found that the majority of transmission is attributable to people who are not exhibiting symptoms, either because they are still in the matic stage, or the infection is ACM to matic, so not only are people infectious when they're not symptomatic. That's actually when they're the most infectious. So from a public health standpoint I mean. What do you do about that? If somebody doesn't even know, they have it, you know it's I mean that's. That's not good news. exactly so this makes control of Cobra Nineteen, particularly challenging in some ways more challenging than disease, even as frightening as a Bola, so for example was a bola. People do not become really infectious until they're extremely sick, so measures based on early symptoms, such as temperature checks are quite effective in the control of Bulla by contrast with Covid, nineteen. People are most infectious before any symptoms appear so most people who were transmitting the or doing so inadvertently without even realizing that there are sick. For, example, younger people are at lower risk of. A serious Kobe outcomes, but they're disproportionately responsible for silent transmission. So that's. Also something that came out of this that that young people are disproportionately responsible for transmitting the virus. Yes, they have more contacts and they're more likely to be symptomatic, and that means that they are disproportionately transmitting as well. So. Is there any? So, then, what do you recommend? I mean just from a public health standpoint I guess it just makes it all the more important that people wearing masks and social distancing, and doing these things which we know helps stop the spread of the virus, and it's more important than ever based on your research to do that because. You can't wait until you feel sick to start wearing a mask infect others. Exactly our results underscore the importance of contact tracing and testing that is fast enough and extensive enough to identify pre-symptomatic cases prior to the onset of symptoms right now the gap between back goal and the reality in America today continues to expand as the outbreak rates, and currently the epidemic is far outpacing the availability of chests. Until we have adequate contact tracing and testing capacity. Staying at home is still the best thing you can do to keep yourself and others. Safe Masks help keeping a distance helps. But if folks are frequently adjusting removing their masks, they may actually be transferring virus from their hands to their face. Do then when you think about schools reopening. If you know if it's young people transmitting the virus disproportionately, not showing symptoms I mean that again just raises a whole bunch of red flags about the ability to reopen school safely. Absolutely given that people are disproportionate responsible for silent transmission reopening schools would be adding fuel to the fire. Even if all symptomatic cases were kept at home like when kids started to feel sick, our study shows that a vast outbreak. Would likely nonetheless unfold from silent transmission alot. Ellison, go Vanni. I really appreciate your research. I mean it's I gotta say it's. It's hard to hear and and This is a this has been a tough our of with a lot of bad news, but it's important to know the facts, and I really appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you,
What Would It Be Like To Fall Into A Black Hole?
"Of all the objects bopping around in our universe. Few are as bizarre and enigmatic as black holes just ask PREETI nitrogen. It's like the point where all known laws of physics breakdown. She's an astrophysicist. At Yale University studying extremely cool cosmological phenomena like black holes so for me the personal attraction the gravitational pull pun intended to wear black hole is really is they kind of represent the limits of knowledge because way before black holes were mapped studied their picture. Taking you may remember that famous image from last year black holes were just an idea a mathematical solution to Einstein's theory of general relativity. So you know. Newton was able to tell us how gravity worked but Newton could not tell us why gravity is that way Einstein was able to come up with this beautiful theory that combined the shape of space matter and motion into one theory. The theory of general relativity absolutely theory of general relativity does exactly that so it was just incredible sort of deep connection that he found between the shape of space matter and motion and therefore masses would distort space time which he envisioned as a four dimensional. Kind of fabric a sheet. So picture our universe as a 4-d fabric fusing space and time and the fabric is bumpy dotted with planets and other kinds of matter. And what matter does it causes little potholes in these. You drop mass somewhere to create a pothole and the size of the pothole. The depth of the pothole depends on the mass of the object and how tightly packed the matter is in that object okay. Massive caused distortion space. Time but astrophysicists building off this work. What happens when you have an object whose mass is so compact that the pothole becomes a puncture in the fabric of Space Time itself? And so the buckwald solution is one of the simplest solutions to these very complex equations. Which was the shape of space around really concentrated kind of point mass and the extreme pothole that such a mass would generate around itself and we now know. The Universe is filled with billions and billions
"On this episode five minutes in Church history. Let's talk about a scientist Sir. Isaac Newton. He was born in sixteen forty three. He died in seventeen twenty seven he was actually born in the exact same year of the death of Galileo. He was born in originally humble circumstances. His father died three months before he was born in sixteen sixty one he went off to Cambridge. He had a grasp of Latin and a very curious mind. He would pass the time sketching clocks and windmills and other kinds of gadgets. Once he got to Cambridge he studied astronomy. This was the era of Copernicus and Kepler and of course he studied the classic Philosophers Aristotle and Plato. He kept his notebooks and in one of them. He wrote amicus Plato. Amicus Aristotle's Maga's Amici Veritas. Plato is my friend. Aristotle is my friend. Truth is my best friend. And he also let Cambridge embarked on studying mathematics. In fact he would come to the way in this field he is credited for inventing the study of Calculus as he called it the calculus of infant hassles and it was also while he was at Cambridge that he studied the motion of the moon and the planets and he recognized this force. That was acting on these planets orbit. He was discovering what would come to be called the law of gravity. He would go on to publish. His books is famous book in Seventeen. O four the book called optics and in There. He puts forth his theory of colors. A very interesting a young student in the colonies at the College of Connecticut. We know it as Yale. University would get a hold of Isaac Newton's book optics and he devoured it. This of course is Jonathan Edwards. And he wrote his own little scientific paper he called of light rays and this was all from. Reading Isaac Newton and Edwards draws this corollary from just being amazed at how the actual physical human eye processes light rays. This is what Edwards had to write hence the infinite art that was exercised in the formation of the eye that has given it such an exquisite sense that it should perceive the touch of those few rays of the least fixed stars which enter the eye which all put together won't amount to the million million million million million to part of the least moat of such an exquisite sense that it should distinctly perceive an image upon the retina that it is not above the eighty million millionth part of an inch wide. That has so nicely polished the retina that it should receive so small a picture upon it when the least pro Tuba Rinse or an evenness would utterly destroy and confound it here's Edwards amazed at the human eye but far more amazed at the God who created the human eye and the God who created the universe and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for Edwards and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for so many other people as Alexander Pope. The poet has it that nature and nature's laws lay hidden by night. God said let Newton be and then there was light Newton as the father of modern science. Believed that no way would science give us less room for God or somehow make less space for God and understanding of him? In fact it was the exact opposite for Isaac Newton. The more he studied God's universe the more he was led to acknowledge and worship God. Newton once said gravity may very well explained the motion of the planets for the can't explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and God knows all that is or all that can be known. That's the Great Isaac Newton

"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their

Can Voice AI have Emotional Intelligence? Feat. Rana Gujral CEO of Behavioral Signals
"I WANNA start off with a recent study that was done by Michael Krause of Yale. University and his research contended that the voice including both speech content and the linguistic impera linguistic vocal cues meaning hitch cadence speed and volume that accompany. It is a particularly powerful channel for perceiving the emotions of others and so he wrote that this assertion supports the central prediction tested in these studies. That voice only communication enhances empathetic relative to communication across senses. Can you speak to this at all? Why are we able to detect more empathy through voice? Yeah for sure. So first off a Weiss's are very bar. Fleischer of deducing the emotional state of mind more so than people understand and this study in particular by Professor Krausz is incredibly interesting. So let's talk a little bit about what he actually did. So basically he took a video feed of interaction and obviously there was audio as well and he turned the video off a just tried to measure the emotion based on simply the audio alone. Andy benchmark that I and he then turned up your back on and realize that you're looking at two data points. You're looking at the audio but you're also looking at the facial and you would expect that the read on emotions would become more accurate. But when he found was that it became actually less accurate and he was really surprised by that. And that's sort of pieces of the study and so thou sort of the whole study which minute think. Why is it that when I'm looking at both the visual and audio I'm actually getting a lesser read than men? I'm looking at just the audio. And so what he found was that as humans very adept at master emotions to facial expressions or not really very good at doing the same throughout the tone of voice. So if you just queuing in onto the tone of voice which is just listening to somebody on the phone. You actually have a better read on the emotional state of mind than when you're looking at the person enlisting to that and the reason that is is we sent out a lot of false alerts from facial expressions and bathrobes us off so although I'm sensing somebody something in someone's voice a facial expressions tell me otherwise and that's sort the interesting part of this whole study and so for us. The high quality data is voiced data in a variety of the use cases. We apply ourselves to provide us with a lot of data like call sanders contact centers including interactions virtual assistance where there's no visual feedback available. So not only. Is it more accurate to focus on waste but for us this more data available on voices visual data and then it adds to the accuracy? 'cause data leads to better outcomes and so those bandages provide us with a compelling differentiation from competitors because focus exclusively voice. That's kind of what we do. And the founders of this company have been researching the space for over twenty years. A lot of work has gone into the analysis poison reactions as well as the Bushland vehicles did apply behind the Watson Rashes yet and it's funny because when I read that study this was actually not the first time I've heard someone. Tell me that I had a psychologist years ago. That you can. Actually you get more honesty and more truth than a person from their voice than you do by seeing them which brings to the point right when you're talking to people sometimes. Somebody's talking to you and you're like I'm feeling this now like no no no. That's not what I'm saying like something feels off and I'm curious like do you think that that is the truth like whatever you're feeling from someone else or is that our own perception. No I think you perceptions accurate for the most part the feeling which you are. Deducing is based on a variety of factors. And I'm in. Your mind is processing the words but there's a lot more processing that's going on behind the scenes. You're doing off on the pitch on total variance in your acuity golf on the emphasis behind certain words. So let's take quick example if I ask you a simple question and You respond to be with a quick simple response. But I sent sarcasm in your voice. I'm going to take that into consideration right. Not just what you're saying how you're responding to me a what responding to me but how you're responding to me matters to me a lot because I understand your state of mind or I get a sense of his State of mind and that Jews into better. You mean what you're saying are not are you relating to my point of view So it's incredibly yes. I am personally faster by because I love this kind of psychology communication space with your company behavioral signals. Your team is answering the question. Can Machines be intelligent without emotions? What do you think about this? This is my favorite question. Because it's like it's got so many different layers to this question so I believe there are two parts to this question. I I is better. Machines can really be emotionally intelligent and the second part is whether there should be and that's a question which I guess asselot resist ethical or is from morality standpoint. Is that the right thing to do. So let's take those rights for the first part machines definitely. Can I mean one of the things that he is focused on is getting machine to do things that humans are just better at doing today but machine software systems inanimate system where you are call them they have their own superpowers for example they can process? Huge amounts of data and compute power can be dedicated to a specific task but as humans. We are distracted by a lot of different things. So you have those capabilities in a machine that can be leveraged to bring intelligent use cases to a picture and we're seeing now what we're seeing now is we're interacting with machines. Orrin bar and it's not just delegating tasks for a machine to do but actually interacting with the machine and talking to it for example we were talking about earlier like when it comes to churchill assistance like Google Assistant Alexa. Cortana were literally treating these inanimate entities as a human substitute bedridden directing that machines through Royce. We need to understand how interacted all humans? And when I'm interacting with you. I'm just saying something to me and I'm saying something back. I'm not just chewing on what you're saying. I'm also queuing on how you're saying it and trying to empathize with your cognitive state of mind and your feelings your emotions behind the words you're using and so when we're GONNA go back to the whole equation but machines I mean that erections best thing between human and machine and as a result a lot of these interactions don't really have a superior use case they're just very transactional and our goal is to provide the ability to these machines to be as good as humans than processing affect twitches or the technical term of emotion s and emotional state of mind so that they could be more relatable and how much more user engage experience for the fellow and it can be and there's a need to be for machines to be emotionally aware. Now let's tackle the should question and that's a little bit more complicated so in a way this touches on morality and I think morality is a tough question. And I don't know if I'm equipped to judge that personally but I would say that. The technology moralities are on proper disclosures about making a choice on your behalf right so by giving you the choice to experience what you want and don't want but there it serves the greater good or one-sided purpose if it is towards a one-sided purpose than yes. You're tampering on morality but if it's for a larger good that you're in the right direction but anything else you'd have a sense of discipline to be able to understand those subtle differences. Let's think about one particular thing so while we can bet on is that we are going to depend on machines more and more and that is something which is given and the second thing that we can bet on is. That machines are going to be more and more intelligence. And that's already starting to happen but if you sort of agree to those Detroit's Andy agreed Troops in mind would rather have a machine that you're interacting with and depending on which is very very intelligent emotionally aware or not emotionally aware and so that is a question when he draws ourselves to. How would you respond to that human question and that human contact's but if you think about that in the human contact me if you have a human who you depend on and who's very intelligent but is not emotionally aware? Well that is the clinical definition of psychopath. I mean so. It would be one machine cycle PATs. I want I in my emotionally. Intelligent machine would typically be more ethical and fairer rather than very diligent machine. You depend on. Who has no ability to process emotions? So that's how I feel and that's where we believe in

"That is from Yale University Press a small book slim read but jam packed with the very of slides here this is one as we go back to the calls up front page ninety nine those who wave the flag for free speech on campus that's in quotes are generally convinced that the regulation of content even when the intention is to protect the vulnerable puts us on a path to authoritarian censorship but the call for the free exchange of ideas no matter what the cost to quote some people quote doesn't resonate with most college students who recognize that not all ideas make it to the market at that when one claims to be tolerant of all kinds of discord certain groups of people tend to get hurt again and again I'm not aware of a whole lot of discourse out there that is aimed at hurting certain groups of people again and again I'm not sure exactly I suppose what it is you're referring to racist language we hear it all the time such as usually racist language what exactly did you have in mind the language that refers to African American people into you and Ising ways and such as I mean I just don't I just I missing all of this that I don't hear a a lot of of of what I would call rate that is a pretty nice page refers to of people immigrating from the south of the border as an infestation or it as being animals that said do you meaning language and it has a sequence of invasion I mean again that we could I suppose turn this into a discussion on immigration the fact is you do not have granted the president has a way of picking language which is a sort of like trying to extinguish the coals and a barbecue pit with big jar of the of gasoline about that but now the state it is an invasion and no one has a right to enter another country I give you a simple example jealous of if I had when I was a student would not have been unusual for professional walk into a room that now had women and men in just ten years before had only men and settled in a class honey look good today well obviously there was going to say that anymore right and the reason they don't see that anymore is because we know that's inappropriate speech well considered to be it's the meeting she can't have access to the full benefits of an education in the same way as other people not necessarily the strikes in a very key part of this discussion I think the fact that you look nice today does not even have why any such thing woke you what did you said what did you say Hey sweetie you're well sweetie is a is a at a level of familiarity that that that should be avoided I would agree someone that you do not know I would I would concur with that but again I think most of us don't say things like that I like to make any comment about a woman's appearance because we realize that will walk into this same PC trap even though I see somebody does look nice today I just don't say I mean it's like if I was there so if if somebody talked about I would tell you that our veterans on campus yes I want to talk about our veterans come to see president right and this has happened how could you have those veterans on campus aren't some of them suffering from PTSD are likely to kill people no that's just ignorance but that is that is it but I don't recall that that that for example a comment about how someone looks does not automatically imply that without nice clothes or make up that they couldn't succeed or whatever there's the inference is supposed to be you know what I'm saying well I'm I'm trying to obviously you know I'm not trying to be up to see Mister rob I really don't but professors used routinely come wanted women students in their classrooms and and make them objects of theirs as a sexual desires in ways they got in the way of their learning for that if it didn't go past just to look nice today I I agree to get in the way they did go past that then yes I agree completely when it was just a passing comment and nothing was ever be pushed beyond that I think that's a that's what I would call hypersensitivity well I I whether you know you you might call it a hypersensitivity yes I will you might say that about the veteran who was insulted as someone yeah but the point of it is that there is no evidence to point out that the all veterans have PTSD are going to people say that that you know what women should be treated as as the object of the professors aesthetic judgment my only point about that in that in that section is that our students today see the use of the rhetoric of free speech as a way of defending the citizens United decision and other things that make them suspicious of the rhetoric Jim I want to make sure I make clear I think free speech is an essential value on campus but there are times in there it will happen a few times when he comes into conflict with some other values well I I'm glad to hear that you say that it.
