"Need to. Consider as we move forward with it chill. Another listener question. This is a less of a science fiction AA question human cyborgs by people integrating with machines and are there dangerous as of The dangers of unplugging person from being a Cyborg or plugging in I, guess would also be a danger. And I feel like since word doing this, we're already extending our brains through having phones with us all the time. These are not books I mean they're they're offering suggestions sometimes, it looks made me WanNa. Go this way or maybe WANNA go that way they're already are changing our behaviors and lots of interesting ways but do you think there's any danger in cybernetics? I mean beyond just how people react to it I mean in science fiction, it's very, very common. trope to have people who are augmented versus the people who are not augmented, and there's often socio economic division or some aspect that divides the people who've decided to become cyborgs. You know this last week on this week in science reported on in a a new design for an artificial eye and it's Got Much. Better resolution potentially than the human eye like once they get past some the basic wiring stuff it's like it's a better I when it comes down to it, and if they in five or ten years to create this thing and implant us with bionic is kid I mean. There are people whose vision is terrible. Colorblind who have you know lost their sight and if we can give people bionic is people are going to do that. We already know people are getting. these. The Cyber Coakley as you know these. Two to help with their hearing loss I think people are going to use tools whatever's available to be able to. Do what they to achieve the goals that they want whether or not. It is a steroid for a body builder or a Mecca suit for a soldier you know or for somebody who's paralyzed we're going to see this stuff. More and more as the technologies are developed. I'm excited about it. I mean, seriously, like cyber robot football. Yes. Yeah I'm with you. I think especially since a lot of these would be tools that would give back mobility people who've lost mobility it give back all kinds of yeah. I i. that's tremendous but you're right. I think a lot I mean I wouldn't shock me at all if you had like really great cybernetic legs that somebody would want to have that instead of the regular legs. So they could win races unlike great. Maybe not points you know but I mean you know there will be you know the Olympics of the future where no doping no augmentation nothing and then there's going to be the Super Olympics. People. They might actually get me to watch something right I remember rob when I went to the Singularity Summit Years Guard. There was a guy at a human cyborg and I can't remember his name you might have had them He had a camera attached to his own. And Yeah. You could log into a website and see if everything that he was saying even when he went to the toilet everything that he'd be you could you could follow his journey of life. That's. Live streaming. Yeah Streaming live streaming. That's s gross. But. I think he's probably doing that spill. And a lot more for nowadays but yet, it's really interesting character but it was such an interesting group of people who Into everything from university to to robots to just all different kinds of topics, even language and communication amongst other non human animals. It's really interesting group of people all the ways that we can improve as humans. Yeah I mean, if we can improve as humans and take everybody along for the ride I think that's fantastic but I think if it. Tributes to the divisions that are already apparent in our societies. I think that's going to be you know it's it's going to be turned into some of those dystopia sci fi novels that are. Very, popular and I love reading I love reading. Novels that I'm like what actually happened. We do like to dispel fears when we can and I would say for people afraid of the I o taking over I mean I think you get like the scenarios like in war games, we have the wallpaper which is going to blow everybody up with the. War and Hopefully say's remote possibility but one thing in our advantages that. We haven't made a is or tools like that that know how to charge their own batteries and as long as they rely on us to give food. Sorry they're working on that right now that would be a mistake. I would think you'd be a traitor to the species if you're. Just, recently, a few weeks back though is a paper on a new, a new robot technology that allows the robot to harvest medal energy from metal in its environment, and so it can self charge. Sustained. Coming I. Mean. We've got what do we have the Boston Dynamics robot? Right now is that in the parks in Singapore. City or what? Have you seen those videos yet? Amazing Vissel, the dog ones the rover I think they're called rover spot remember but the Boston Dynamics dog sized robots. They've deployed a few in parks in Singapore to make sure that people are socially socially distancing and to like yell at people with you know a person voice to tell them to get a part into socially distance. So you've got these super scary dog robots in the park watching you. Only. Only in Singapore where you could go to jail for littering. Mark Nice.

"Got Everything. To do this, I, have a lot on my to do list. We have the entities from arrival which was based on Ted Chiang's story of your. Life. the tines from a fire upon the deep the fifth I can't even say that V from footfall in the entities from blind site. and then we have. Java from Star Wars. The Hut. Yeah. So there were a bunch of good ones Sam Francisco Mandy Patinkin and. Nation. In so long. Sour milk and then the ocean will burn them up like asset. That's Yeah. Yeah. I mean and then there's also The doctor and from doctor who I haven't heard of that. Different you. Know I know. Some of your. Food. Oh yes. Oud. Some of my favorites. So right now I'm like I I'm reading. What is what is the book the Children of Ruin and it came after another? GonNa open it up right here and. the children of ruin by my kindle is super slow. Hey phone here. Fast Adrian Kofsky that's what it is and. It's the second in a series that is just fascinating and Hugh O. B. The first book was children of time, and it's humanity is like killing themselves off, and so they're trying to recede. They're trying to tear reform worlds and seed life in other places and almost like us yet relevant. And and they've they in the this one scientist has created a genetic bit of Genetic Code that is infectious and infects each generation but makes it makes the organisms more sentient and she was going to. It's it's an uplift kind of mechanism. Yeah and instead of uplifting monkeys, they accidentally uplift spiders. And it's. In the second book it's it's octopuses and it's like. Mike Space spiders and space octopuses Allah God. If he did skunks could have sentenced sentence that'd be awesome. mother drink. So. We'll genre for these books. Science fiction. Yeah. Yeah but it's really interesting because there's a lot of it's based I. Love the the hard Scifi that is based in science. So it's a lot of the. Speculation comes from a very real place, and so you can. You can get yourself in these worlds. These authors create as opposed to. Owego they do that. I can't even watch this anymore or I can't even read this book because suspension of disbelief has been completely blown. Christina. In the in the youtube chat wants to know if you'd be willing to talk about how accurate you think depictions of artificial intelligence are in science fiction and science fantasy. In it if you want to narrow that down maybe like what do you think are the most plausible versions of AI versus the most highly implausible or whatever everyone interpreted your question go for it. I mean I think there is. There A. Represented so many different ways. I think the. Betsy Oliver No. I might be blanking on her on the author's name, but there's There's a series of books that. In which artificial intelligence has reached human intelligence status and also gone beyond human intelligence and humanity is still trying. It's Deciding whether or not these artificial intelligences can have human status. and. So there's real questions of person hood that go into these stories and it's very I. I love those stories because it really gets those philosophical philosophical questions we were talking about earlier about once something. In an artificial intelligence is conscious. You know who? Who is a human to pull the plug who is human to tell that artificial intelligence. You're not you're not real. You know and so it's some very interesting questions there. New like that because I think science fiction at its best gives you that layer of abstraction. One step out. So you can think about topics that might infuriate you or if they were like brought into the real world but allow you to like. Sort of. Mal, your own thinking and see. maybe things that you didn't notice otherwise. Bad. Yeah and that's and that's what I really like about stories with artificial intelligence because they do I think Dr Very, important questions that. Are Very. Pertinent to society right now and culture right now. But just attaining an understanding of them from a different direction, which is really neat and then there was a i. think it was called the robots of Gotham was the name of the book when it's a completely different direction for the I and they're a I has reached superhuman intelligence status and the is are having a war among themselves. And humanity, and there are some a that want to completely destroy humanity and other ai that want to help humanity but kind of as pets, and so there's very. It's it's a very it's very interesting from the the question of if there were that. That next level like where would it go? That's What was it again I think it's called the robots of Gotham talking about Batman and Robin but. Could not long to go. Just another ten minutes hanging there. Talking about the. Intelligence that wants to destroy humanity or humankind What do you think? Poses which poses the greatest threat to to humankind I think it would be unofficial intelligence or aliens arriving. I. Think the biggest issue is humanity. Are I mean the biggest threat against humanity is humanity And we should be really taking that seriously right now. But. Yeah, go to go for a more fun you know. A Evers. Aliens kind of perspective Yeah I mean you want we want to be more afraid of aliens because They're alien they're strange. There's something that we don't. We don't understand. We're not GONNA understand that they're not going to understand us. So of course, they're going to destroy us they're going to want our planet. Blah Blah Blah. We can only understand aliens through the lens of Human Conflict and so we want aliens to be the ones that destroy us and we because artificial intelligence is this thing that we're creating. Baby and it's going to be rate. It's GonNa. Be One. We don't want to believe that artificial intelligence is going to be the thing to do within. Yeah. But I think yeah I think probably it's more likely that artificial intelligence will get us before the aliens do let's I mean if if I'm GONNA take theory. that. I, it gets it goes back to humans destroying themselves. So there we go. It does it does comes full circle. Also making me think all this discussion about aliens and Lake hasn't made any about. So immigrants yet I've not. Is that something I should be waiting filling. She was saying we were going to talk about sci-fi aliens what other kinds the is the legals, but I don't think that's right. But I need you had to you do I mean what was that movie? It was second. District nine. The aliens lawns. Yeah. There among us, but you know do you. What do we do? Do we make them citizens do? How do we manage your so different than us but they have. Yeah. Yeah. That's they should have been trade the that I that was a really interesting movie. I Don I didn't I didn't. Care for some of the other stuff he's done but I really like that one. I thought it was great. We had a question about how do you feel about asthma's laws of robotics? And a follow up would be have you looked at cards as more Scott cards hierarchy of alienness I don't actually know that one. Yeah. Yeah, yeah I have I I've looked at the. Not, I don't remember all the details of it right now but yeah, I. So I for Asimov's laws I think that. Computers. Know what we tell them. Aside from new artificial intelligences, other that. We allow to have natural learning. Methods to develop their intelligence but they still have the initial programming that we give them and we need to be very, very careful about what we tell them is their priority. You know what is their goal but are they trying to do or they saving some I? Mean there are a lot of really. Potentially difficult questions or Bad Endings for humanity if we don't get the programming, right? It was like. Something seemed really good when I made this program and then the program grew it's doing what I told it to, but I don't like that. The. Ability to fall such a scary thing to put into programming like the ability to learn. Is that inevitable been that it's going to Go go awry. I don't think it is inevitable but I mean I. think it is going to be artificial intelligence is a black box and right now we are creating artificial intelligences that we don't know how they're coming up with the answers they're coming up with or why they're doing certain things like the behaviors, the things that they're doing their the computer scientists who put in the original programming there like we don't know how they got to to x we don't know that. So It is it is it's alien intelligence and we should it's not human intelligence, and so that's something.

"One is A military base north of LAS, Vegas and there's a lot of lore around it folklore that that there were. Alien crashes and Roswell and other places in the craft were taken back there Especially, a guy named Bob Lazar was involved at that the area like things called s three that he was working. Reverse engineering yeah yeah. And? There's no reason to believe that there are aliens or alien craft there. That's that's all just folklore, but it is a military test ground. So kind of strange and interesting airplanes get tested there and in. there was a little town called Rachel on the north side of the mountains there a lot of people plane-spotters. people were interested in military aircraft and people interested in aliens would go there together in like us high-powered telescopes to try to look at the base he was going on and there's a really interesting book written thinking Ninety Eight, ninety, nine called Dreamland if. Recommend. That is a good read for bets I split. Between cultures. Kirkman. I'm wrong. But I think we had don't pro throw shown talked about fifty one he did. Because he's father had worked there and no interest in year and and had seen a lot of things that have gone on there and. On Kim trails and area fifty, one of the things there was multiple topic book. Could probably due to treat that again in another separate episode. Yeah. I would note though I don't I haven't seen anybody makes us connection but. The Rudo Ron Fifty one was in September and now we have this virus that seems a little weird doesn't seem weird to you seems we are. Unknown. Are you trying to see the whole new conspiracy theory here? Might be better than the five G. The five G.. E. D. Conspiracy. Oh. My Gosh. Stop. Already, can you all these people are concerned about like? Bill Gates is going to be tracking them. So they're using their mobile phones to talk about how they don't WanNa, be tracked their mobile thelen. The GPS thing that lets you find out where you WANNA go in also lets other people find out where you're at so. And you might have facebook on your phone that you've. Access to all your data there if you're Google file, you've got all the Google APPs Yep. There we go. You're already tracked. Nobody knows anything about me what I share with everyone publicly all the time with our wants or not exactly. Yeah and as far as like area fifty one and all that kind of stuff goes I mean people there have been a lot of stories recently of like new videos being released about craft flying and weird ways and you know they're I think they're always going to be. Videos either either fake videos that people have created or just are that have really interesting. Light phenomenon in them or something maybe even military technology that nobody knows about yet. They're all sorts of things that can explain these things. But I, love that you know we we don't WanNa be alone in the universe and so people like come on maybe it's aliens. Like cats for you know for space people I guess. Is that of a beam. Are. Not that into you? Okay. Just. Indentified part that's almost everything and I look at is about people. You know I did I didn't understand what this was. So I, think it's this I didn't understand what this was what they can says a ghost bigfoot it's the ghost of a bigfoot is the ghost bigfoot you know so yeah, and then as you were saying, yeah, occasionally people actually creating things like that makes me give Jeff Hickman and Stan Romanek even Remember them in there I lean videos alien window. Media. About fifteen years ago now and He's he's still in jail. Mississippi completely unrelated. The Chat, a shield high gave empire, which is great topics that we're talking about. Tonight we need to cover the highgate vampire. That's a really good story. So how did that come up I? Don't know just. Walk. And that's how you say Hello I gave higher. I'm reading that as a shout. Sorry. So but that is that is a really good. We really do need to cover that. That's a fun story and Absolutely should. That we we're going to talk about one thing and then people. So you're GONNA talk way we'll says, wow. This monster everything in all of the things just all of them everything. That is what we do like. I saw on twitter Dr Picky that you mentioned you coming on the show tonight and then you put it out, they will to favorite sci fi alien and you got. A lot of response. Did get a bunch of responses I can open that up right now and take a look i. know some people had they said Mr Spock. Star Trek. Failure Yeah but the Volkan people very logical and. I. Thought that yeah I thought that was. You know it. It doesn't have to be there the monster alien someone else said Zina. Zena Morph from aliens There's also the alien and Predator. So those are the kind of. You know the scary ones. Like Oh. Gosh humanity. What are we? GonNa do? Yes some of these, some of the other or some of the other responses here. I. Should find out stop which your favorite. As. Well Yup. And someone else I hadn't read the Commonwealth Saga by A. By Peter Hamilton and I haven't read it but Ed Godoi said Morning Light Mountain.

"It's always going to be difficult to get consensus when you're looking at stuff because we all have different perceptions and biases, it's really complicated. Will artificial intelligences have. Those differences Oil See things the same. We want things like we're engines. We we we we have things we need, and we want and and and values cultural values and personal goals all these things, and those have a tremendous impact on our behavior and I can't imagine how you would be able to make good ethical machines that to understand that that seems like a really hard challenge since we can't even figure out. In, our own families, how to deal with those kind of struggles. Yes end at the same time. You have things like Oh sorry to interrupt that you had things like this collective health, the nations. Near where? Thousands of people see mother Mary in the sky and. All kinds of phenomena. Is In my toaster. Haven't seen any of those for a while. were. Twenty years ago are. Now the drink for everyone out there. So, so I guess we should transition to aliens. I mean here's the question you know we go in to space travel as humans and we're talking about, okay it's impossible to send humans outright. Now we're going to send robots, go explore our robots are going to have to have artificial intelligence because we can't talk to them. So are the first aliens that we're GonNa meet going to be artificial intelligence is. The oldest generation because they just got here they just got here. They updating their operating system come on. How. Did you get interested in aliens? Oh I love I. Think from a biology perspective, I love the exobiology. Questions of if things are evolving on other planets, water the forces that would turn them into whatever whatever kinds of animals they are whether it's. Lizard people or. Or birds or fish or whatever kind you know and then. For if from or is it micro microbial slime mold type alien. Alien Intelligence they are what kind of what kind of an alien. Could possibly be out there and it's. Just looking at the diversity of animal life on our own planet it just and if you. Look consider how big the universe is and how many possible planets there are out there for life to evolve on a just the possibilities are limitless. The ours really exciting. I I like People, who talk about this topic alive from a Meta perspective the one of the things is the duration that most of the aliens you see in fiction tend to look like humanoids for the practical reason that they're in their costumes with humanoids in the people inside the costume. So. But I think if you if you if you think about life on earth, we're such a small minority of of the life. I mean like. Beatles I. Mean Insects in so many weird fish. So. Amazing. All the different variety that's out there but they hardly ever put on screen and I wonder if that's because now we don't have the limited suits anymore. I. Don't think you have to have a guy in a suit or or lady in a suit but. It the CGI possibilities for what much biker still pretty limitless but there's still not much exploration and I. Wonder How much of that is because of devotion to that sort of ANTHROPIC principle. Right, and we like to imagine ourselves in space maybe being the conquering aliens you know and so if we're imagining aliens coming in conquering our planet. Of course they're gonNA look like us because that's what we're GONNA do. I mean if nothing humanity has an ego. So, do you believe that one day we're going to come across aliens of some kinds? Yes I do I think. I am excited about the possibility of finding microbial life on moons of Jupiter or Saturn or potentially even Mars. Explored there I mean, we feel like we've been there forever, but we've scratched the surface just barely. Barely. On. Base. Mundi's raising yes. Yeah. I mean I. Think. Of Microbial life is GonNa be probably the easiest kind of thing to find little tiny lifeforms So, not not great. Mun Yeah. Yeah. I'm not so sure about. She froze just like seem. So. He said it would be after an adviser. She's about ten seconds. Join US and she disappeared. Sins and alien. She's been returned to the home world. He said too much. And she pay your income. We had managed check on and he didn't do a single trick in the. Water. We were prepared. Have Magic skills also. I guess the thing is I. You're right I think finding life in our own solar system would be incredibly valuable because right now, the only thing we know is DNA has replicating molecule. In Our Name but but the. Those had to come from something and we don't have any other versions like. We have we have variations, but we don't really like primitive versions that are radically different from everything else everything's closely related. So the something alive on another planet be really really informational. It would be it would be amazing and if and if it were similar to what we've got here Irene that in itself. Mind boggling that they're you know the there's this idea of Panspermia, right? The idea that. Life came microbial -I autumn on a meteor and then. was seated seeded life on the planet around around the solar system around the around the galaxy. Maybe. And so in his life. Around I, love it. Panspermia who came here from a Seder light that's. been. What. So do you think that we can expect that? If and when something's going to be found that it's going to be more similar onto what we have on earth or. More different. I I honestly don't know that we can. Predict an ad you know, but it's like but I. I mean speculation the forces of physics and chemistry are as far as we know the same. All over the universe. So if chemistry works the same somewhere else even if it's you know methane oceans instead of water I mean you've. Still. Got Organic life that could that could form there. So there I don't know and there's there's oxygen and got the hydrogens and there's if you have the elements, they could potentially combining the same way. Yeah Yeah I it certainly is I'd love to see the I'm very excited about some of the expirations they're doing around like Vostok where they're trying to like get down inside this really ancient lake and see which down. But you gotta get through this ice, which is the same thing you'd have to do on a moon of EUCHRE. Really interesting although I. Think. I read. Sometimes. I don't remember what I read in a real thing or what was the science fiction they've been inc I read. There was a plan to do a satellite around one of the volcanic moons would receive. They could scoop up something from the atmosphere from some of the volcanic. That's good. But that might not be real. So just. STORY YOU DISTURBS I've I've heard also a plan I? Don't know if they'll ever do it but they've got a plan to send drones to Venus because they think if life could still be in existence on Venus that it would be in the atmosphere yes. Yes I've heard that too. Yeah. This is one of those amazing planets shows up all the time in ufo Laura in the fifties and sixties, and then you think it was the Russians who sent the first Alastair in the the big crushed melted dissolved in acid like just like most an hour. Not Agreeing place to visit. L.. Should probably check into with the US and see thirty questions or any comments is as long as they're not about my background. No. Why would they be. Surprised you says running a running team. Yeah. My wife jumped in on that sorry Karen Okay. On saying anything. With biggest. Just fine, which is still yet channing. So a cat amongst yourselves the Might get a well, I would ask questions we had a question from Chad Allen on twitter who was asking about fifty one and that's somewhat alien related. Just throw this out there he was asking if we could talk about you. Look at it. Does exactly. Yes. A folklore perspective. Yeah. Okay. So if one is A military base north of LAS, Vegas and there's a lot of lore around it folklore that that there.

"Was that. A lot of the people weren't really people out of the people who thought they were engaging with females were actually engaging with chat bots and. Yeah just Yeah. We're, pretty easy to fool. Especially when it's a Chat Bot saying exactly what you want to hear. I come to think about it as the cat situation. I think some people see cats as you know, kind of little furry jerks that live in your house and some people see them as having this tremendous personalities and I think if you're one of those people who don't. You, totally a dog person. To cat person here. They have a very rich personality. Fought for and loving and caring and. Are you trying to tell my cat is an artificial intelligence. Your cats not that not that into you. You I think. Some. People have wonderful cats I. I have the misfortune of having one of the Jerky jerk cats. I've ever. Dog Dealer. Often. Something memorize really. Yeah okay. Her Cat isn't it? Cat So. We're I think more importantly I'm not. It's person I. Think. Yeah then. Oh you'd be surprised what I do for that cat it's it's just up the things I'd have to do that cat anyway that's. Wrong. Anything because some side, just the way that is used by some businesses and I was thinking of those phone calls, you get the telemarketing phone calls where you into the finest say hello, how learn how you and chatting with someone for I mean. A lot of. Things. Yeah. Apparently, they do. I mean they wouldn't keep doing them if somebody wasn't buying into it. Yeah. So I just never answer my phone. I never watch any anymore to suspicious into lot of those seem to come from the same numbers all the same prefixes he can kind of recognize them but. Getting more that way they're not answering the fines I think that's quite a common thing I'm hearing from a lot of people they just want to deal with telemarketers and that if I don't recognize the phone number. Owned voicemail and then I am screening you. Know. It's hard to believe that there's no technology or legislation that could stop that. Anyway. It's almost like somebody has a financial incentive to let it just keeps happening and happening. All right. That's a conspiracy theory I have. All right. I worked for Telcos for a long time and I don't think they have a lot of pressure on them to stop as on sands. So artificial intelligence Oh, it's on. It's on the same track and if you give much thought but there's this this bugs me personally it but it's really popular. Are we living in a simulation? It's a great question, the answers forty-two until you. Run into. Several pretty prominent people who think this might be true I think they're prominent people who are grossly Uninformed about how complicated life is but It would be a hell of a simulation so. and. then. It gets that like a whole big question of you know what's the purpose of this simulation if it is a simulation and? There's gotta be. There is yours Easter eggs in here somewhere. Yeah I mean the whole idea that this is a simulation you I mean you have to have. I've heard the the thought that if you were to simulate the universe, you would need a computer as big as the universe. There isn't there's a there's a space storage problem for sure in the hours the universe is really big. Big bigger than you could even really conceive. These ideas come from the from the Matrix or do they go further back Than that that's a really interesting question I. Think I think the ideas. I think those around further back. Yeah. I mean especially since the advent of computing and. when people started working with I I would I would probably say the seven seventies or eighties maybe. It was Dallas when it turned out that. It was her. So maybe. No but my wife. Yeah I mean the I i. mean the first papers I remember reading about like the Internet potentially becoming conscious were from the mid nineties. but you know so the idea of it, the universe being yeah, I. That's a great question, I? Don't know. It's really interesting. Pam Stream and the not bobbies. Sorry. You. STARING KIRK Make. Sure. That gets fixed. You know. There's all kinds of. I mean it's it's about abstraction. Isn't it? I? Mean we what we do in our minds as distractions and modeling, and then if you can do modeling inside a computer, well, how accurate can you make the model and I? I could see the pattern can see where you could go with air but. There's When I hit my come from science fiction or something or aunt too. So then it's Entertaining. In that sense of yeah. Yeah. So I mean and philosophical ways of looking at things go back centuries. We've got you know the the advent of logic and reason you know. Centuries back with the Greeks and you know so and. And I just I I imagine that there was pro you know they they probably didn't know the the idea of simulation or whatever but they were asking questions about consciousness and reality and. This cave couldn't you I mean? How can you tell what's real? If you're only seeing the shadows which goes back to the whole thing about how do you know what the real reality is versus? Experience in eastern philosophy of you know are we really experiencing this right now is, is this really happening or is this this body? Just an illusion? There's this it's precedent for it. I want you know in the Unin recently, there's been a lot of conversation about you know the cognitive capacity of our ancestors and at what point in time were they probably. Con- conscious in the way that we are conscious. But he just living in a very different reality you know living in a survival based world. And there's a current speculation that at least two hundred, thousand years ago with. The formation of of complex tools that and and potentially even earlier than that humid humanity would have had the same cognitive capacity that we have now. That our ancestors they would've had the potential to be sitting there. Hunting some old animal and thinking about. What is the meaning of life you. Doing this. Those theories go back to when we started language civic forty, five thousand years ago. But we've had gestures for millions of US are yeah. Yeah. I'm tough to get hit a sweet about it. We'll have to come back and talk about that topic of The is it a simulation because I have a lot of thoughts about that, but it's happening. It is fascinating. I'm really against it. I think there's way more reasons to suspect. It's just. NAVEL-GAZING BS from the valley but. My opinion. On right now. We could be. Some kind of stimulation the group. I prefer I prefer mass hallucination. I'd like to restart and restore from save is Yeah. It has a as a neuroscientist. You know there's this whole. You know our perception is we create our brain creates the perception that we have, and there are internal states of our body that affect that perception, but it really is. We have our internal experience and understanding of what's going on but. It's like it's it's kind of like the ven diagrams of olive are overlapping perceptions that actually create reality is if you were alone with no one else to compare to. Its. Who Am I? What am I? You know the goal dress blue dress thing. W I. I mean a lot through really arguing about that. But I thought it to be such an interesting demonstration of of quality of how we can look at the same inputs and get totally different results and within my own family tree of a saw the gold to solve the blue if I remember the numbers correctly. So there must be a genetic component to it, but it was it was really interesting and a.

"We have had these kind of periods of excitement many times over the decades and people get excited and the money comes and the research grows and then nothing happens and then the excitement fades away the money goes away and then there's a desert for awhile and then something happens that allows it to grow again so it's kind of these. spurts. Of Technological Advancement and. Right. Now, we are in a big boom when it comes to artificial intelligence and the work that's being done I mean there's no question about it with Some of the the the Google. And What does it deep mind and? I'm trying to remember the name of the some of the research companies that are working on artificial intelligence that they've developed computer technology that can play the game of go better than a human. We've got you know computer technology, a technology that starting to write poetry and songs and Produce Art that is. That when humans look at it and they go oh yeah. That that could be made by a person you know. So the robots. Quote Unquote. Robots. are starting to achieve a teen the capabilities. In certain domains off. Yeah, then. Yeah, no for this thing about. Artificial intelligence and consciousness, which is pretty big gap. So I I keep thinking about myself in terms of general purpose, intelligence would be awesome. But special purpose intelligence. We're seeing that all the time you see yes all the time you don't even think about it. I mean they're Siri or I'm going to get in trouble was. that. They can be wonderful helpful things but they can also be really annoying and answer the wrong thing and misunderstand you and. That's okay. If I'm in the kitchen, trying to figure out how to play a podcast episode without using my hands on my phone. But it's not okay if I'm driving down the road and expecting my car to drive for me, it's not doing it right. Turn left I don't understand. I keep seeing. Johnny cab in total recall that. Little talking cabdriver. That's probably way more accurate than it should be with new. This is making me think of Silicon Valley it now few guys for that at all. I entirely avoided that I left San Francisco I was saying. Funny stuff for that. Yeah. Did you see the final series in the final episode was kind of I think based on the computers becoming more intelligence and no spoilers despoilers so We. All orders sixties as we've watched five of them and we got delayed on this last one, I've got all the episodes ready to go queued up but. Haven't had a chance to sit down I. Basically Waiting Wife, Kathleen, okay so We got on tonight we have got to know what? We. Do Watching. Any questions anyone coming through and high the duck. Not No, my wife's mad at me now. Keeping you honest. There we go. Grab Alcohol Scroll backups. We can going through easily they don't amongst themselves and complain about my grand. What's her drinking. Game. Monet or Rembrandt. Yeah. The drinking game. Like is very well known for his sunny says. A group of them like to drink shots when he Safar was the right. Will Kurzweil has that whole thing where he? Takes vitamins all time. You know he's super into that but I thought. I didn't show up to the conference you're talking about. So would vitam in that was my first pun thought but I held back because I thought. Nobody's GONNA. Everyone. Get that. Ticket. Still singularity so. We might be pretty soon. That could happy just the corner. But, that whole idea of of singularity is interesting compared to artificial intelligence because there's a lot of science fiction that goes into the question of if artificial intelligence does become conscious you know what is consciousness? Would we recognize it if we if it actually happened Then if we hit the singularity and we are able to. Upload our consciousness into virtual constructs in. Essentially. What does that mean for? You as a human because that you're no longer a human your consciousness is in a computer. and. So how does that how does that affect humanity and are you then and artificial intelligence? Yourself. So. They're. Working as questions, Auburn Philosophers people who working on the ethics concerned with all of this their. Resistance kind of speculation amongst. People like us. When I'm sure there are people working on this from an ethical standpoint but at the same time, it is still so on the. Edge of what is possible yet it's not possible yet, and so it's still storytelling still speculation I think a lot of the philosophizing is actually done in you know these fictional stories kind of. Authors. Going oh this would be a really interesting. You know kind of way to twist the world and in the characters in the story and how does that affect people and? Yeah I find it really interesting. The how easy it is to fool people into believing they're talking to other people when it's like this really intelligent chat bots, for example. I mean. Even. Ally in college at once. Well, you'd be surprised when people people fooled very easily. Win watched twitter. Yes beginning. Fights with people who are not people yes. Yes. If you if you look back at Elisa, which is one of the reverse primitives, interactive chat tools I mean it was it was released an analyst.

If the creature known as the Loch Ness Monster. Mr Doll. Okay. So we're we should live now. All right. So welcome to muster talk live I'm blake fifth. Into special guests is Dr Kiki Sanford. Hello. Thanks for having me here. Today you're joining US yeah. Longtime follower and I've seen you on so many things and heard you on so many things. So it's really great to get you here in person. Yeah. It's the feeling is absolutely mutual I. Think this has been like from a distance. In any running in each other's circles for so long and it's just wonderful to get to meet and talk and Karen. Thank you so much for. Inviting me on the show. It's nice to have you here. I think I met you about ten years ago years ago. I was skeptical. So you talk I was giving a Tolkien that was the first time you and you're still in the bay area then and so was I and we've moved on and yet everyone's moved. On the show you're, you're one of these people have been talking about for years and it'll go dock to Kiki on so. Good to have you. Thank you. Yeah. It's great. We got some broad fun stuff to talk about tonight. We're GONNA talk a little bit artificial intelligence, and aliens and. I'm fun stuff like that. So. Ductile Kiki on the show and I said, what would you like to talk about any monster? We have a very broad definition of what monster is and so you said sci-fi Aliens An. End or I yes I did. Both. Are you did you think why? Not both? Okay I don't have to choose this is great. Yeah very bad. Topa several allies about today's topics who absolutely. Artificial intelligence is actually a topic. We have not talked about much on monster talk although it's deeply. Yeah Yeah. And we in you know there's a lot of fear around it and more and more is creeping into real life we're having to deal with it. So so how did you get interested in it? Well I think reporting on technology and science for so long artificial intelligence is one of those topics that it's always developing and there's always this promise of you know super super intelligent, artificial intelligence. That's right around the corner. There's going to be coming at some point but then reading science fiction or watching watching science fiction movies there is. Very often an artificial intelligence entity of of one kind or another whether or not. It's artificial intelligence that pilots the ship or its artificial intelligence that has really gone beyond what humans are capable of and is now. Busy of the benevolent, a I also the of the artificial intelligence that does not care about humanity and actually just would like to get rid of it, and so we we see all sorts of examples of of this in like humanoid robots and and these other ideas of these the robots with artificial intelligences that are going to replace humanity you know and it's I. I think really fascinating concept especially when we. Put it into that kind of humanoid robotic form because you. Humans are playing God in creating the robots with the artificial intelligence in the first place, and then those children go beyond the capabilities of humanity and at some point spurn their God you know I think just from a conceptual standpoint it's like Oh my God. Teenagers. Do. Need you. To this is reminding me years ago I went to. A singularity summit. So this was a conference about the singularity and remember ray cuts wheel appeared via video. So he didn't even ten up at even it was all about him. Is He real? Anyway it's all a construct. I think. Disappeared Fire. Could have been something. Creation? Robot Hannukah. I'm wondering what you think about that because he would talk about how machines would surpass humans. Takeover humans. and. Always seemed like it just around the corner going to happen to us or five years and I think we keep passing these milestones happening. What do you think about that theory? Yeah. Well, it's it's fascinating because I've I talk with technologists who are so excited but it's like, okay we have to get past Moore's law and we have to We have to get get get past the physical capabilities of the transistor and you know how the basically the smallest transistor we can get is is can be no bigger than or no smaller than the size of an atom because that's this the jump that has to take place, and so there's like these these atomic scales that necessarily restrain how small things, how small chips can get and so that constrains. The technology and how it's going to grow in the future, and so there's that one limitation and then they're like, no but we're going to find a new form of metal that will allow us to do this and something will happen and we're GonNa jump pass it because that's what we always do and so you know now there's the the idea that we're going to get superhuman intelligent artificial intelligence by either somewhere around twenty forty or twenty, seventy, I think someone's. Getting pushed out the estimate and. But I, and then I've talked with. Artificial. Intelligence researchers who are developing these computer science technologies and they're like..

"These tools may be you use the facebook tools stream on facebook and then stream on twitch as well. Because that's where most people are but it's probably a useful tool for a number of people all right. Let's follow up on yesterday's qube launched. Oh that's according to preliminary data from Sensor Tower. Short video service. Kuby was downloaded more than three hundred thousand times following its launch on late Sunday as of midday Tuesday qube was the number four APP in the apple APP store. That's behind Tik Tok. Zoom and hangouts meet ha imagine that in where it was heavily promoted in banners and curated up collection so it did get a lot of love on the on the Iowa side number twenty nine on Google play. By comparison also by comparison Disney plus saw approximately four million installs when it launched in the USA and Canada back on November twelfth and HBO now saw forty five thousand when it launched April seventh twenty. Fifteen numbers are a little bit different because of course. Qube is mobile only but gives you some sort of a sense of where it's falling compared to other heavily touted services. Kiki of you tried Qube. Do you know what it is. I have not tried qube yet but we were just having a conversation about it this morning at breakfast my nine year old knows qube and we've all agreed what it I mean. This is a it's A. It's a revamp of this short video service. There's already players in the space like Youtube and And many others and but what are they doing and I mean I mean. Maybe it'll be because people are going there to see stars that they recognized like in particular content creations. Maybe they'll download it and access it but Yeah I don't know what's going on there. It should have been number one on the APP store. It doesn't even matter what the download numbers are exactly. Three hundred thousand is not bad but it should be in front of Tick Tock on day one if it was going to have a good start is Patrick. I'm curious what your opinion is My opinion is that I am still curious about the service because I think there is a space for professionally produced mobile targeted and designed content. And even though I use youtube an enormous amount. I think it's a different kind of content and I don't really watch You Know Netflix. On my mobile especially not when? I'm moving around which nobody is doing at the moment. But it seems like if you design something to be More bite sized but still scripted and unscripted maybe Shows there could. I'm not saying should but there could be a place for it But yeah as you said it should be number one. And that maybe doesn't I guess the big issue I see with Qube is that they've launched and we still don't know exactly what it is. We don't know why we should wanted which advertising is terrible. I also a friend of mine who by by the time we. I pulled a few people before we talked about quitting on the show yesterday because it was launched a and you know a lot of my friends were like. I don't know and one of them between then now was like yeah. I watched some content. And it's all that kind of sneakily summarized style of content where it's like. We've got to get through a lot of information in a short amount of time. We're going to go ahead and and make it we're going to Parse it nicely for you because you're you're very busy and on the go and that is the sort of thing that only some people want anyway and feels to me like they're a internet overdone already as a style but just so off for right now I part of me is like I'm sure quickly had lots of really great reasons to stay on their track as far as launch goes but man to just have launched when it when when people were commuting and people really we're kind of rushing from place to place or maybe had a few minutes between meetings and really only had that ten to fifteen minutes or something like this would come in much more handy. It's a tough sell right now. I will say just erupt this up that the one qube show. I've watched every day since it launched his fresh daily from rotten tomatoes disclaimer. My wife runs the team that makes fresh daily for one tomatoes. All right folks If you want to get the headlines. There's one way to do it. Go find our show. Daily Tech Headlines Daily TECH HEADLINES DOT COM. Alright one of the reasons we love having Kiki on the show is this week in science does a great job of covering science and particularly right. Now Kiki I have been relying on you as one of my sources for understanding what's going on with covert nineteen so. I'm very glad that you're willing to kind of answer. Some of our questions about this. We asked folks in the discord. What kinds of questions we should have Kiki talk about here. And let's start with testing and vaccines STOIC. Squirrel wanted us to ask. What are the types of test used to detect viruses? And how do they work so there are a number of different tests that are used and as you know? There's rapid flu tests that you can have done within about fifteen minutes and or even faster and there are other tests that take a take longer and so the question is how do they work. Why are some longer and wires? Some shorter Especially with respect to Cova nineteen and the SARS covy to virus what we started with were. Pcr BASED TESTS PR stands for polymerase chain reaction longtime ago. The creator of this won a Nobel prize for it and What the process does it uses chemical reagents and a series of heating and cooling steps to basically multiply genetic material. Dna from a virus into enough copies at amplifies the signal to a big enough signal so that it can be picked up and read And then you have reagents that interact with that signal and turn a certain color. If a particular if a particular type of or a sequence of DNA is detected so words. You're taking a blood sample or a swab or was swamp and then everything in here and let's see if any of the virus exactly right but when you're just doing a swab that's not a lot of material. It's a very small amount of material. And so how do you really detect something you have to make it a bigger signal? Pcr what we traditionally us. It takes time to run the tests which is part of the problem And there are machines and reagents that are involved that limit the number of places that are able to run these tests and so number one you may have heard that the CDC fumbled on their initial tests that involved this pc our methodology because they're one of their chemical reagents was wrong and so they needed to fix the needed to get a chemical and so they're also supply chain issues involved. Now we have a bunch of different labs up in Washington state. There has been this. Massive outpouring of support volunteers from laboratories across the state have been taking their laboratory testing equipment and turning it into cove in nineteen testing equipment using what they have but pipette tips the little tips on the little suction machines at suck up a certain amount of fluid and spit it into another well. Those pipette tips of particular sizes were limiting factor. So they're all sorts of things in the supply chain that come into question and limit the availability of the tests or how long it takes to have them done So this PC. Our testing is the one that takes A. You'll find out maybe five to twelve days after the fact whether or not you are positive for covert nineteen In your in your system the other tests that are being worked on are more rapid tests that also use an amplification of genetic material but they use different techniques and different machines And so these more rapid tests again can work with a swab of your throat or your nose and And but can be ready in about fifteen to forty five minutes which is much better for. You might have heard of drive through testing where people are able to go through in their car. Get a swab and then get their results within just a small amount of time In these use different chemical reagents. They use different What are called cartridges? Mish which are these sets of testing equipment? It's just all the all the chemical reagents and test parts that are needed. Put into a small package and so again. Manufacturing and supply comes into question into making them available to people. Oh sorry go. Yeah Yeah and then I was gonNA Going to say also moving on from that you might have also heard of these antigen based tests. And if you're familiar with allergies this is the same kind of thing your body responds to Antigens. The Antigens are bits of proteins that come from an invader and whether it's a piece of pollen or whether it's a virus your body is going to have an immune response to the Antigen and we can your body then starts You can find antigens the blood and the saliva if your body has started creating an immune response to them it starts. It starts Having these puzzle pieces locking key that fit together that can be recognized. And so you can do a blood test to find out whether or not somebody has an antigen response And I believe just this week. The FDA has approved as serology test. That looks for these antigens in people's blood and while it cannot tell you whether somebody is immune and can go back to work. It can tell you that they have encountered the vet the virus on a pre at some point previously because we don't yet know about immunity. We don't yet know enough about that but at least we can tell like okay. You were exposed. Might be more likely that you're immune perhaps we don't know but at least you know for sure whether you're exposed and Brett Stewart wanted to know is there any checkout. They're being floated by companies testing potential. Vaccines that would help us. Get to market quicker. Yes so this is really interesting. This is In the last twenty or thirty years people in research have been working on plasma. Dna and more recently M. R. N. A. Vaccines and these are different from the traditional vaccine production pipeline. Where historically you got active virus and then you had to either deactivate it and inject inject pieces of the virus into people or actually live virus would be injected into people so that your body would build up that immune response however with these once. You know the genetic sequence of the virus in question you can take a small segment of DNA or Messenger. Aren A and injected into somebody. The DNA needs to get into the nucleus of the cell and then it just goes through the normal cellular machinery for copying of jeans and the plasma DNA gets into the nucleus creates a whole bunch of Marnie the Mr. Her name moves out to the riot. Zooms and gets translated into the antigens that your body produces an immune response to so it uses the cells own machinery to boost the immune response and it can happen faster and there are two companies right now. That have these have M. R. N. A. and D. N. A. Vaccines Testing and there are a bunch of others that are currently being tested. But these are the ones that were hoping are going to get moving faster because they're quicker to clinical studies and they will also be quicker and more easily manufactured to be able to get out to people because those are the two things you want to be really sure that the vaccine doesn't you know hurt people or kill them and make the problem worse so you need. You need to test for that and yet to be able to make and the the speed at which you could make an going to delay it to are less overhead. Yeah we're into human trials which is exciting but that just means we're into the beginning of human trial of making sure that it's for the humans all right last thing before we go both dark knight on Bioko had questions about companies stepping in to make Machines that they don't normally make we hear about companies making ventilators We hear about the people using three D. printers to print parts. Is this safe? How do we make sure that these parts are the right ones and they work well and and that they're pro appropriate for a clinical environment? Yes so the the the PR. The manufacturer pipeline of companies like GM and Tesla Tra Transforming their manufacturing pipeline into doing ventilators instead of solar panels or cars Once they have the engineering specs the blueprints and have have switched their machines over The like the speed of their ability is very high and they will be looking at them to make sure that they're safe. They will be checked but These larger corporate efforts he's industrial efforts are going to be probably safer in the long run than the smaller scale from home. Three D. printing efforts. But that said we are in a triage situation and hospitals have ventilators with parts that are breaking all the time they Have other a variety of things that are needed and hospitals themselves are accepting parts from known entities and there are efforts currently at work using Engineering specs and blueprints..

Forwarding as it seeks to slow down the spread of misinformation if a user receives a message that has already been forwarded more than five times. The user will only be able to send the message on to a single chat at a time down from the five chat limit imposed in two thousand nineteen. The message can still be passed on as many times as the user manually. Hits the forward button because of what's HAPP- end to end decryption? It can't moderate based on message content. Yeah so they can't tell what's in there. They just have to figure out. Kind of a brute force way of doing this and we've been covering this on DT since it started back in two thousand seventeen with limiting forwards and every time they sort of put another limit. Another speed bump The idea is that if you can't forward as fast you may be less likely to forward something that you give a second thought to and we'll also just slow down. How fast spreads? Yeah just less convenient. I I think in two thousand eighteen. It was a twenty limits on on sending something that had already been forwarded then last year became five or I'm sorry it was. It was something like one hundred. Then it was twenty then last year became five and now just the one. So obviously what's up thinks especially if seeing viral content that's misleading. Which of course there is a well. There's always a lot of that. They're particularly is a lot of that related to cove in nineteen right now that the company thinks this actually does help to slow the spread of bad information. And Yeah what's up can't really scan for content otherwise. It's kind of the way to do it but I think they're doing the right thing. They're not saying you can't possibly share this with anybody but just the one person because it's been forwarded to many times might be totally legitimate news. It's just making it harder so you have to think twice Geeky. It's kind of like what about Good Djinnit? Yes it is like flattening the curve. Exactly Yeah I think Patrick.

That I'd like to share with more than one person at a time. You still can just a little harder. I guess it would be mainly for memes. I can't really think of any piece of information that would need to be shared in that way. Maybe something funny but yeah the question. Is There Edison Maker of Edison? Male has launched an email service called on mail that it describes as the first permission based Email Service. So you get an email from a new contact. It gets put in a separate field and then you can decide to accept it or block it. It also promises automatic read receipt blocking without disabling images and support for larger attachments. It also promises effective natural language search and it has both paid and free versions elite. It'll be offered at launch later this summer. Although didn't give details on what the differences were between free and paid. You can sign up for early access if you're interested at on mail DOT COM. It's been well since we had a buzzy new email app that finally fix email. What do we think the chances that this will be? The one you know has become so good that I forget to check it Half the time so something that kind of is like this is probably spam. But maybe because it's the first time this you know are you. You're the recipient from this particular person. We're going to put it in this little area and you having signed up for the service want the ability to go into that area and filter better. I think it sounds a good idea as long as you don't miss stuff and maybe a system that would geeky please. Yeah I was just GonNa say this system may be the kind of thing that for very direct Communications where you WANNA keep a private Contacts List And you want things that are that are only permission based much much more private And less accessible by those spam email bots This seems like something that it might make a dent. It might be something useful to people. Feels like these kinds of communications. Don't happen by via email though but I guess maybe it's because we don't have this tool yet and that could be useful for goes I do worry that it's another thing to go. Check and as you mentioned Sarah Basically Spam filters are so good initially. When I read it I was like. Oh yes this is great. This is going to be just what I need but in practice Google's and others Spam filters are so good that it's rare that you get something that you don't want from the in in the first place and sometimes the things that you don't didn't ask for you actually do wander. They might be useful. Or it's something from a service you signed up for you. WanNa be informed About and then it would this you have to go into that separate place and check that you emptied it. Essentially checking your spam folder. It I think in the long run. It's a little bit less practical than it sounds. Microsoft is expanding its X. cloud game streaming data from the US UK and Korea Korea to include Belgium Denmark Finland and France Patrick Germany Ireland Italy Netherlands Norway Spain and Sweden people in these added countries can sign up for the android version. A limited number of people will get access in each market with more people added over time trying not to overwhelm networks project. X Cloud will launch more. Broadly later this year but not in every test country Microsoft's also testing on but it has to limit that to a single game because of APP store policies. So project cloud the ability to stream your video games. I know that's something Patrick that you have been doing for a while with shadow and other services how. How excited or are you excited about this? Well I signed up for twice as you mentioned for Finland and France. No I signed the ones but it is. It's definitely the most promising and biggest player in that space because it's Microsoft and they also have their A game pass service which is essentially a subscription to a large Number of games and it is pretty exciting. But it's still just a test. It only works on android phones. Android devices So it's it's for a certain number of game it's not for the entire catalogue so it's still in the testing stages. I'm excited it's coming to a place where I can give it a try. But it's not going to be a significant part of my gaming routine yet until it launches a little bit more broadly. Yeah but it is slow motion. But we're seeing these services become real. It's interesting yep absolutely. Facebook gaming launched a feature gold tournaments that lets users create and Organize Virtual Gaming tournaments creators get hall host Fan Tournaments and Stream. Them streamers can also use facebook fundraising tools to donate money directly to relief organizations. How significant is this? This is this is facebook's attempt to try to get some of that gaming love over to it it is not as well established as twitch or mixer or any of those kinds of things. Will this be something fun that people take advantage of? Do you think It's well. They're already tools for organizing tournaments The Big Advantage. Facebook has is that it has all of the pieces in order to make this happen in. Can it can broadcast it can Get the people into the brackets and all of that And twitches the big player there. I'M NOT SURE. Mixer or youtube for streaming are bigger than facebook gaming It's kind of everyone other than which seems to be the similar spot. I'm not sure this is going to be a huge dent into their You know their position on that market. But it's certainly a cool tool that if you want to organize a tournament than you don't have to fumble as much at this stage twitter still the main players so you're probably going to want to do it on twitch but if facebook offers these tools may be you use the facebook tools stream on facebook and then stream on twitch as well. Because that's where most people are but it's probably a useful tool for a number of people all right. Let's follow up on yesterday's qube launched. Oh that's according to preliminary data from Sensor Tower. Short video service. Kuby was downloaded more than three hundred thousand times following its launch on late Sunday as of midday Tuesday qube was the number four APP in the apple APP store. That's behind Tik Tok. Zoom and hangouts meet ha imagine that in where it was heavily promoted in banners and curated up collection so it did get a lot of love on the on the Iowa side number twenty nine on Google play by comparison also by comparison Disney plus approximately four million installs when it launched in the USA and Canada back on November twelfth and HBO now saw forty five thousand when it launched April seventh twenty. Fifteen numbers are a little bit different because of course. Qube is mobile only but gives you some sort of a sense of where it's falling compared to other heavily touted services. Kiki of you tried Qube. Do you know what it is. I have not tried qube yet but we were just having a conversation about it this morning at breakfast my nine year old knows qube and we've all agreed what it I mean. This is a it's A. It's a revamp of this short video service. There's already players in the space like Youtube and And many others and but what are they doing and I mean I mean. Maybe it'll be because people are going there to see stars that they recognized like in particular content creations. Maybe they'll download it and access it but Yeah I don't know what's going on there. It should have been number one on. The APP store doesn't even matter. What the download. Numbers are exactly. Three hundred thousand is not bad but it should be in front of Tick Tock on day one if it was going to have a good start is Patrick. I'm curious what your opinion is My opinion is that I am still curious about the service because I think there is a space for professionally produced mobile targeted and designed content. And even though I use youtube an enormous amount. I think it's a different kind of content and I don't really watch You Know Netflix. On my mobile especially not when? I'm moving around which nobody is doing at the moment. But it seems like if you design something to be More bite sized but still scripted and unscripted maybe Shows there could. I'm not saying should but there could be a place for it But yeah as you said it should be number one. And that maybe doesn't I guess the big issue I see with Qube is that they've launched and we still don't know exactly what it is. We don't know why we should wanted which advertising is terrible. I also a friend of mine who by by the time we. I pulled a few people before we talked about quitting on the show yesterday because it was launched a and you know a lot of my friends. I'll get to it and one of them between then now was like yeah. I watched some content. And it's all that kind of sneakily summarized style of content where it's like. We've got to get through a lot of information in a short amount of time. We're going to go ahead and and make it we're going to Parse it nicely for you because you're you're very busy and on the go and that is the sort of thing that only some people want anyway and feels to me like they're a internet overdone already as a style but just so off for right now I part of me is like I'm sure quickly had lots of really great reasons to stay on their track as far as launch goes but man to just have launched when it when when people were commuting and people really we're kind of rushing from place to place or maybe had a few minutes between meetings and really only had that ten to fifteen minutes or something like this would come in much more handy. It's a tough sell right now. I will say just erupt this up that the one qube show. I've watched every day since it launched his fresh daily from rotten tomatoes disclaimer. My wife runs the team. That makes fresh daily for one. Tomatoes folks If you want to get the headlines. There's one way to do it. Go find our show. Daily Tech Headlines Daily TECH.

In charge of developing wireless technology things like modems. Antennas and oversaw. Apple's global wireless product testing efforts Taiwan government agencies from using video software would security or privacy concerns such as the zoom video communication service. The hits keep coming presume. The government advises that if agencies must use non domestically produced software. That organizations should consider Google and Microsoft. Sony unveiled controller for next for. Its next on so-called dual sense. That's the name of the controller. Haptic feedback replaces rumbled technology and adds an integrated microphone and adaptive triggers that can adjust resistance. The share button also has been renamed to the create button and presumably does more than just share. It creates I guess. If you're separated from your significant other right now. Facebook has launched an experimental APP in Canada. And the United States called tuned to you. Any D- It's an iphone private space for couples to share notes photos cards voice clips and spotify songs to cheer each other people at each other with the phone number and nobody else gets access to the content except for the third party advertisers. I would presume all right. Let's talk about something. What's up is doing to help. Fight Misinformation indeed WHATSAPP announced. It will impose a new limit on message. Forwarding as it seeks to slow down the spread of misinformation if a user receives a message that has already been forwarded more than five times. The user will only be able to send the message on to a single chat at a time down from the five chat limit imposed in two thousand nineteen. The message can still be passed on as many times as the user manually. Hits the forward button because of what's HAPP- end to end decryption? It can't moderate based on message content. Yeah so they can't tell what's in there. They just have to figure out. Kind of a brute force way of doing this and we've been covering this on DT since it started back in two thousand seventeen with limiting forwards and every time they sort of put another limit. Another speed bump The idea is that if you can't forward as fast you may be less likely to forward something that you give a second thought to and we'll also just slow down. How fast spreads? Yeah just less convenient. I I think in two thousand eighteen. It was a twenty limits on on sending something that had already been forwarded then last year became five or I'm sorry it was. It was something like one hundred. Then it was twenty then last year became five and now just the one. So obviously what's up thinks especially if seeing viral content that's misleading. Which of course there is a well. There's always a lot of that. They're particularly is a lot of that related to cove in nineteen right now that the company thinks this actually does help to slow the spread of bad information. And Yeah what's up can't really scan for content otherwise. It's kind of the way to do it but I think they're doing the right thing. They're not saying you can't possibly share this with anybody but just the one person because it's been forwarded to many times might be totally legitimate news. It's just making it harder so you have to think twice Geeky. It's kind of like what about Good Djinnit? It is like flattening the curve. Exactly Yeah I think Patrick. Your question about legitimate messages. I mean it's it is annoying if you're like oh I've got something really really good here really legitimate. That I'd like to share with more than one person at a time. You still can just a little harder. I guess it would be mainly for memes.

It might be something useful to people. Feels like these kinds of communications.

Maybe it'll be because people are going there to see stars that they recognized like in particular content creations. Maybe they'll download it and access it but Yeah I don't know what's going on there. It should have been number one on the APP store. It doesn't even matter what the download numbers are exactly. Three hundred thousand is not bad but it should be in front of Tick Tock on day one if it was going to have a good start. Patrick. I'm curious what your opinion is My opinion is that I am still curious about the service because I think there is a space for professionally produced mobile targeted and designed content. And even though I use youtube an enormous amount. I think it's a different kind of content and I don't really watch You Know Netflix. On my mobile especially not when? I'm moving around which nobody is doing at the moment. But it seems like if you design something to be More bite sized but still scripted and unscripted maybe Shows there could. I'm not saying should but there could be a place for it But yeah as you said it should be number one. And that maybe doesn't I guess the big issue I see with Qube is that they've launched and we still don't know exactly what it is. We don't know why we should wanted which advertising is terrible. I also a friend of mine who by by the time we. I pulled a few people before we talked about quitting on the show yesterday because it was launched a and you know a lot of my friends were like. I don't know two and one of them between then now was like yeah. I watched some content. And it's all that kind of sneakily summarized style of content where it's like. We've got to get through a lot of information in a short amount of time. We're going to go ahead and and make it we're going to Parse it nicely for you because you're you're very busy and on the go and that is the sort of thing that only some people want anyway and feels to me like they're a internet overdone already as a style but just so off for right now I part of me is like I'm sure quickly had lots of really great reasons to stay on their track as far as launch goes but man to just have launched when it when when people were commuting and people really we're kind of rushing from place to place or maybe had a few minutes between meetings and really only had that ten to fifteen minutes or something like this would come in much more handy. It's a tough sell right now. I will say just erupt this up that the one qube show. I've watched every day since it launched his fresh daily from rotten tomatoes disclaimer. My wife runs the team that makes fresh daily for one tomatoes. All right folks If you want to get the headlines. There's one way to do it. Go find our show. Daily Tech Headlines Daily TECH.

I would presume all right. Let's talk about something. What's up is doing to help. Fight Misinformation indeed WHATSAPP announced. It will impose a new limit on message. Forwarding as it seeks to slow down the spread of misinformation if a user receives a message that has already been forwarded more than five times. The user will only be able to send the message on to a single chat at a time down from the five chat limit imposed in two thousand nineteen. The message can still be passed on as many times as the user manually. Hits the forward button because of what's HAPP- end to end decryption? It can't moderate based on message content. Yeah so they can't tell what's in there. They just have to figure out. Kind of a brute force way of doing this and we've been covering this on DT since it started back in two thousand seventeen with limiting forwards and every time they sort of put another limit. Another speed bump The idea is that if you can't forward as fast you may be less likely to forward something that you give a second thought to and we'll also just slow down. How fast spreads? Yeah just less convenient. I I think in two thousand eighteen. It was a twenty limits on on sending something that had already been forwarded then last year became five or I'm sorry it was. It was something like one hundred. Then it was twenty then last year became five and now just the one. So obviously what's up thinks especially if seeing viral content that's misleading. Which of course there is a well. There's always a lot of that. They're particularly is a lot of that related to cove in nineteen right now that the company thinks this actually does help to slow the spread of bad information. And Yeah what's up can't really scan for content otherwise. It's kind of the way to do it but I think they're doing the right thing. They're not saying you can't possibly share this with anybody but just the one person because it's been forwarded to many times might be totally legitimate news. It's just making it harder so you have to think twice Geeky. It's kind of like what about Good Djinnit? Yes it is like flattening the curve. Exactly Yeah I think Patrick. Your question about legitimate messages. I mean it's it is annoying if you're like oh I've got something really really good here really legitimate. That I'd like to share with more than one person at a time. You still can just a little harder. I guess it would be mainly for memes. I can't really think of any piece of information that would need to be shared in that way. Maybe something funny but yeah the question. Is There Edison Maker of Edison? Male has launched an email service called on mail that it describes as the first permission based Email Service. So you get an email from a new contact. It gets put in a separate field and then you can decide to accept it or block it. It also promises automatic read receipt blocking without disabling images and support for larger attachments. It also promises effective natural language search and it has both paid and free versions elite. It'll be offered at launch later this summer. Although didn't give details on what the differences were between free and paid. You can sign up for early access if you're interested at on mail DOT COM. It's been well since we had a buzzy new email app that finally fix email. What do we think the chances that this will be? The one you know has become so good that I forget to check it Half the time so something that kind of is like this is probably spam. But maybe because it's the first time this you know are you. You're the recipient from this particular person. We're going to put it in this little area and you having signed up for the service want the ability to go into that area and filter better. I think it sounds a good idea as long as you don't miss stuff and maybe a system that would geeky please. Yeah I was just GonNa say this system may be the kind of thing that for very direct Communications where you WANNA keep a private Contacts List And you want things that are that are only permission based much much more private And less accessible by those spam email bots This seems like something that it might make a dent. It might be something useful to people. Feels like these kinds of communications. Don't happen by via email though but I guess maybe it's because we don't have this tool yet and that could be useful for goes I do worry that it's another thing to go. Check and as you mentioned Sarah Basically Spam filters are so good initially. When I read it I was like. Oh yes this is great. This is going to be just what I need but in practice Google's and others Spam filters are so good that it's rare that you get something that you don't want from the in in the first place and sometimes the things that you don't didn't ask for you actually do wander. They might be useful. Or it's something from a service you signed up for you. WanNa be informed About and then it would this you have to go into that separate place and check that you emptied it. Essentially checking your spam folder. It I think in the long run. It's a little bit less practical than it sounds. Microsoft is expanding its X. cloud game streaming data from the US UK and Korea Korea to include Belgium Denmark Finland and France Patrick Germany Ireland Italy Netherlands Norway Spain and Sweden people in these added countries can sign up for the android version. A limited number of people will get access in each market with more people added over time trying not to overwhelm networks project. X Cloud will launch more. Broadly later this year but not in every test country Microsoft's also testing on but it has to limit that to a single game because of APP store policies. So project cloud the ability to stream your video games. I know that's something Patrick that you have been doing for a while with shadow and other services how. How excited or are you excited about this? Well I signed up for twice as you mentioned for Finland and France. No I signed the ones but it is. It's definitely the most promising and biggest player in that space because it's Microsoft and they also have their A game pass service which is essentially a subscription to a large Number of games and it is pretty exciting. But it's still just a test. It only works on android phones. Android devices So it's it's for a certain number of game it's not for the entire catalogue so it's still in the testing stages. I'm excited it's coming to a place where I can give it a try. But it's not going to be a significant part of my gaming routine yet until it launches a little bit more broadly. Yeah but it is slow motion. But we're seeing these services become real. It's interesting yep absolutely. Facebook gaming launched a feature gold tournaments that lets users create and Organize Virtual Gaming tournaments creators get hall host Fan Tournaments and Stream. Them streamers can also use facebook fundraising tools to donate money directly to relief organizations. How significant is this? This is this is facebook's attempt to try to get some of that gaming love over to it it is not as well established as twitch or mixer or any of those kinds of things. Will this be something fun that people take advantage of? Do you think It's well. They're already tools for organizing tournaments The Big Advantage. Facebook has is that it has all of the pieces in order to make this happen in. Can it can broadcast it can Get the people into the brackets and all of that And twitches the big player there. I'M NOT SURE. Mixer or youtube for streaming are bigger than facebook gaming It's kind of everyone other than which seems to be the similar spot. I'm not sure this is going to be a huge dent into their You know their position on that market. But it's certainly a cool tool that if you want to organize a tournament than you don't have to fumble as much at this stage twitter still the main players so you're probably going to want to do it on twitch but if facebook offers these tools may be you use the facebook tools stream on facebook and then stream on twitch as well. Because that's where most people are but it's probably a useful tool for a number of people all right. Let's follow up on yesterday's qube launched. Oh that's according to preliminary data from Sensor Tower. Short video service. Kuby was downloaded more than three hundred thousand times following its launch on late Sunday as of midday Tuesday qube was the number four APP in the apple APP store. That's behind Tik Tok. Zoom and hangouts meet ha imagine that in where it was heavily promoted in banners and curated up collection so it did get a lot of love on the on the Iowa side number twenty nine on Google play by comparison also by comparison Disney plus approximately four million installs when it launched in the USA and Canada back on November twelfth and HBO now saw forty five thousand when it launched April seventh twenty. Fifteen numbers are a little bit different because of course. Qube is mobile only but gives you some sort of a sense of where it's falling compared to other heavily touted services. Kiki of you tried Qube. Do you know what it is. I have not tried qube yet but we were just having a conversation about it this morning at breakfast my nine year old knows qube and we've all agreed what it I mean. This is a it's A.

It should have been number one on the APP store even matter what the download numbers are exactly three hundred thousand is not bad but it should be in front of. Tick Tock on day one if it was going to have a good start is Patrick. I'm curious what your opinion is My opinion is that I am still curious about the service because I think there is a space for professionally produced mobile targeted and designed content.

It might be something useful to people. Feels like these kinds of communications. Don't happen by via email though but I guess maybe it's because we don't have this tool yet and that could be useful for goes I do worry that it's another thing to go. Check and as you mentioned Sarah Basically Spam filters are so good initially. When I read it I was like. Oh yes this is great. This is going to be just what I need but in practice Google's and others Spam filters are so good that it's rare that you get something that you don't want from the in in the first place and sometimes the things that you don't didn't ask for you actually do wander. They might be useful. Or it's something from a service you signed up for you. WanNa be informed About and then it would this you have to go into that separate place and check that you emptied it. Essentially checking your spam folder. It I think in the long run. It's a little bit less practical than it sounds. Microsoft is expanding its X. cloud game streaming data from the US UK and Korea Korea to include Belgium Denmark Finland and France Patrick Germany Ireland Italy Netherlands Norway Spain and Sweden people in these added countries can sign up for the android version. A limited number of people will get access in each market with more people added over time trying not to overwhelm networks project. X Cloud will launch more. Broadly later this year but not in every test country Microsoft's also testing on but it has to limit that to a single game because of APP store policies. So project cloud the ability to stream your video games. I know that's something Patrick that you have been doing for a while with shadow and other services how. How excited or are you excited about this? Well I signed up for twice as you mentioned for Finland and France. No I signed the ones but it is. It's definitely the most promising and biggest player in that space because it's Microsoft and they also have their A game pass service which is essentially a subscription to a large Number of games and it is pretty exciting. But it's still just a test. It only works on android phones. Android devices So it's it's for a certain number of game it's not for the entire catalogue so it's still in the testing stages. I'm excited it's coming to a place where I can give it a try. But it's not going to be a significant part of my gaming routine yet until it launches a little bit more broadly. Yeah but it is slow motion. But we're seeing these services become real. It's interesting yep absolutely. Facebook gaming launched a feature gold tournaments that lets users create and Organize Virtual Gaming tournaments creators get hall host Fan Tournaments and Stream. Them streamers can also use facebook fundraising tools to donate money directly to relief organizations. How significant is this? This is this is facebook's attempt to try to get some of that gaming love over to it it is not as well established as twitch or mixer or any of those kinds of things. Will this be something fun that people take advantage of? Do you think It's well. They're already tools for organizing tournaments The Big Advantage. Facebook has is that it has all of the pieces in order to make this happen in. Can it can broadcast it can Get the people into the brackets and all of that And twitches the big player there. I'M NOT SURE. Mixer or youtube for streaming are bigger than facebook gaming It's kind of everyone other than which seems to be the similar spot. I'm not sure this is going to be a huge dent into their You know their position on that market. But it's certainly a cool tool that if you want to organize a tournament than you don't have to fumble as much at this stage twitter still the main players so you're probably going to want to do it on twitch but if facebook offers.

"dr kiki" Discussed on Papa Phd Podcast

"So today we're talking with Dr Kiki Sanford Kiki Science Communicator with over fifteen years of experience media science journalism and informal science education she received a Bachelor's degree in Wildlife Fisheries and conservation biology and a PhD in Europe geology from UC Davis before transitioning into a career focused on translating scientific research to various audiences and helping scientists in their communication efforts in Two Thousand Fifteen Dr Kiki founded broader impacts productions a boutique production agency dedicated to science storytelling additionally she founded produces and hosts that this weekend science podcast a weekly live show that covers a multitude of science topics in talk show format and he's also the VP the of Public Relations for Science Stock Nonprofit Science Communication Organisation. Welcome to the show Kiki thank you for having me on your show so can you tell search me and the listeners a little bit more yourself how did you get into science and a and how you came to do what you do today yes so Yeah the the introduction introduced all the things I kind of do but I currently have I feel like I've got a lot of pots that I'm constantly he's stirring where I've got you know my my podcast production pot and I'm I'm figuring out stories I want to talk about people I want to interview for for that endeavor and then I have my production company where I'm creating videos for scientists and writing scripts doing podcasts for other people so that's doing the work actual practice of science communication and beyond that is working for science talk and trying to help bring the growing community of science communicators together so all of it together are really speaks to my passion for science communication which I realized I had while I was in graduate school and that graduate school to me I loved doing science I studied urged brains it was really interesting work and I loved Wing It but during the process there was full of realizations for me about what my where my real passion lay and this is where I am today okay so so you got into Grad School Science per se was something that that that was a passion I guess From from before what turned you onto science in the first place so when I was young I think it's just a combination of a bunch of things I grew up out in the country my house my parents house was in the middle of one hundred acres of farmland and we raised chickens and my youth consisted of running through the fields chasing the dogs as they chase goals as my mom yelling at me in the summertime to come inside because the airplanes we're going to be flying over with spraying the insecticide over over the fields so there were all these little things that came together to you really give me an appreciation for the natural world and so- biology was the the area of my interest and along the way my dad was always very I guess in the way that he taught me and mentor me as as a parent was to be curious to ask questions to be able to support my opinions with evidence so he was he had a very saint scientific way of thinking and he may develop that as well and then I just had a number of really wonderful teachers you know like in high school when you're in the frog lab and teacher allows you to pop the frog frog eyeballs out and I said yes I dissect them and look deep clore deeply and and so there was a lot of that in in my childhood and that you know I grew up with three television channels there was no cable when I grew up and it all there was to watch on TV was maybe Electric Company and Sesame Street in the nature programs on the PBS Station that was that was it yeah so it seems like you had a you were born almost to be a naturalist like in nature you had your father inspired you to uncritically about things and clearly the bath seem to flow naturally from there and so you mentioned that during upc you caught this virus of science communication and was there a moment was there an event how did that come up where where did you get this this bug I think I always had a bug for communication so in addition to like to the the the natural world interest I I was always doing drama I was always I was in choir band I was always in a perform it is affirmative way at it in various ways and so that was always in me and then I did a Radio Show when I was an undergraduate in school and the show is just a radio show music show not science communication just music but it was is really in graduate school not my Undergrad it was graduate school when I started doing more presentations of my work started talking with people about my science going to conferences and then also teeing classes and you know that that transfer of information in and working with people to help them understand ideas it started to all come together and there was a point in graduate school where I was hanging out with my friends were drinking beer and talking about science nahles cool things in the news and we were like we should be on the radio Oh oh I know I know the program manager down at the radio station on campus I'll go talk to him so I went down to the radio station and instead of proposing a music program I proposed a Science Program also and they said yes and they said yes beginning of all of this okay and okay so you had a calling you found unopened or an open window in your Dovan I took it yeah and so I guess at that point I guess that's where the love of the media this type of media grew more but how did you marry that with you know keeping focused finishing your your degree and the and becoming Dr Kiki I felt like I was living a double life for a while honestly I would spend half of my time on the radio show and half of my time on graduate school studies even though they're both they were both about science the radio show was broad so I was looking at astro physics and chemistry and biology neuroscience environmental site you know all sciences was what stories are interesting and how can I tell the story in Can we talk about it and my graduate studies were so narrow yes they knew that narrowing in on that.
