The Power of Audio with Audioburst founder and CEO Amir Hirsh
"Historically it's becoming more and more accessible but how can audio be more accessible so when we started audio your we analyzed. How come we as a personal fans of podcasts in your content and radio content as well thought that there's always all the answer that you want and all the content exists out there. How come he doesn't pick up on the internet. The hukou doesn't pick up on the new digital world and age the same as text and video n. there were several challenges that we've analyze and found them that what we've built around in order to solve his that audio in many aspects is not very easily discoverable. So you can't search audio. You can't came on your. You can't share argue a lot of the times. The audio content was one hour or forty. Five minute long of podcasts or radio show now is very accessible. You can't search for it. You can't look for specific clip or area that you'd like to listen instead of listening fully immersed into the whole show and you couldn't share any of it so what we've done in audio versus that we've built an ai engine that listens to vast amount of audio content. Have it be podcasts. Radio online videos that pretty much became slide with the audio content behind it and in an essence does three actions wanted analyzed it and cut it into short clips so we were able to take a long form show and cut it into the individual items that conversations the topics the questions that happened within it allowing users to get into specific point than sample what they're looking for the second is that we've index each clip that the we call burst we've added as much as possible transcriptions keywords entities source time a mood analytics number of speakers. There's plenty of dimensions that we've added to each clip like that so we'll be able to find it afterwards when the user can't and then we've added that delivery mechanism. Api layer and then on top of it as decay an imitable player for the web and libraries for and android to allow the different products and the different places where users are today to add an embiid audio layer to their products the main essence and misses that we wanted to do an auburn while making acceptable is making it extremely easy for products to add an audio layer and our dimension to what they're offering to their clients and to their users instead of asking the uses to come look for audio summer to come download an app or look for it online. We said no. I want the to be able to listen to their podcasts. Within the running up on the websites to be able to add the audio interview of the person mentioned within the article in the article itself and available that way. We're working on integration with podcasts. Search and audio playlist to be added to automotive to oem's and tier one. So when we drive. I want the or your car to greet you. Good morning. Allen here's the Traffic report and here's what happened in the news. And by the way. I know that you asked about tesla stock last night. Now i'm sorry a couple of days ago here is a couple of Analyst talking about it. That i've found over the night while you were sleeping. That kind of mechanism makes audio is easy and accessible to users wherever they are whenever they are just a touch away or command away or click away and that's the mission that we've done in august and it's quite the future picture. Frankly it's happening today. Alan i gotta tell you so. No no i know. I know it's it's amazing to me. I know you've you've been spending a ton of time building the tech in the meta data structures to make that possible and you talked about a few of the potential customers or ecosystem that you operate in like the news aggregate or the even the automotive industry. Can you go a little deeper for me. Like tell me a little bit more about like where audio burst operates today and like what are some additional use cases where you see your technology fitting in happy to one you remember. We started this conversation with you calling me crazy so i still need to convince you whether you know or futuristic or it's happening today. We were lucky enough happy enough to have multiple great partners invest in our company and work with us hand in hand to build this future. Earth with juristic thing. So you'll see among our investors for example samsung and hyundai and denso giants from the mobile and consumer electronics through the automotive and media world. That have joined with us in this effort to make this happen and that was an incredible. That is an incredible journey for us to do. Other birds today is live and via our player in. Api's and as decays in our have added all your to mobile apps such as flipboard the news break to websites of variety sizes of styles of and topics verticals with our impeccable player. And i think on the automotive that you said sounds of fridge ristic we have a few not live yet but few sees that we're working with leading oem's fortunately i'm not allowed to disclose on unique playlists to be added to their infotainment system to search engine behind voice activation. So you'll say hey name your Favorite car what's the latest on president by then or what's going on with the dallas cowboys or howled the markets of behaving today and you know the for time-to-time some of the existing voice activation will give you a robotic answer. A some clipper what auburn is offering them to dan. The what we're doing with them is the will provide you with the latest clip from professionally produced provider of the content from experts in the media world from the analysts from the best radio stations. Or podcast that will really give you an answer that you'll enjoy listening to that. You can stay focused on that you can listen for you know a few minutes of enrichment content while you dr. So and companies that were working with that are adding the sinking ability into smart earbuds. So you can do it in your car when you jog on when you run either from your app from earbud itself. These are exciting times. I can tell you. In the beginning. It took companies and customers of our some time to adapt and understand the message that we've done but twenty twenty really opened their eyes and saw how much the uses are dying to get talk content and podcasts and user errors. The case every brandon every company out there all of a sudden can become an audio media world and audio media provider. Because they don't need to be worrying about that layer they just add this became we handle everything for them and delight their users. It's pretty. I mean it's amazing. What the infrastructure that you've built behind the scenes if you will of these different applications at frankly proliferation i guess of where it could show up. I mean some amazing amazing platform that you're building from online news sites to encourage experiences to while on the go to your point. I mean i think that is the power of audio is that it can pretty much follow you throughout your day without interrupting. Whatever it is that you need to be doing at that moment in time or where you need to be going. that's amazing.
"ristic" Discussed on Exponential Podcast
"The targets local areas to subscribe to your church instead of classic ties and offering. It's interesting you know. I've talked to scott harrison and quite a bit from charity water about how he's trying to fundraise and he ended up going to subscription model. Now i mean this could an hour long conversation of itself. Part of me says that engage disciples so forget the whole online offline debate but what does it engage disciple to me a priority in my life is giving like. That's just something i do. Because i follow jesus and the first priority. The first ten percent of my giving goes to the local church. So i don't know that that would change. I could see subscription like if you look at it to certain extent to give credit to the to the leader who asked the question. Yeah i mean when it becomes recurring giving right in a lot of people we say automate the important right. i wonder if that kind of is a subscription model. You know what scott has found is that he divides for charity water. He has one hundred thirty one ish families last time i talked to him who give at one hundred thousand dollars a year or more to fund the operations of charity water and even offset any fees. So that way when you give your thirty dollars a month ten dollars a month twenty dollars a month hundred percent goes to clean water. I have really been intrigued by that as a thought for on boarding new givers I would be happy to pay the light bill at a church. That's no problem domain. To pay salary benefits no problem. I'm a follower of jesus. I get it i know. I've run a church. I know what it takes. But i think for the average person coming in. We've seen great. Traction it connects us with young givers becoming regular and sacrificial. But i wonder if there's something to that recurring subscription thing that can be a doorway toddler. We've got another question that in very similar i was i was just wondering if we could Piggyback off that one person said what values are important that are not consumer ristic strategizing about our digital presence. I think engagement isn't consumer stick. Feels that way. Because you're asking people you know. The superficial level of engagement is light. Subscribe follow comment blah blah blah blah blah. But real engagement means. We're on a journey together. And obviously jesus is the center of that journey. But i don. I don't think that's like consumer stick at all and ultimately the gospel is a call to sacrifice right. Like what am i giving. Not what am i getting. And so we play in this consumer culture. We plan this consumer landscape but we have a very counter cultural message. And i think if you look at the churches that have been effective over the last twenty years. There is an element to church. Lead like churches that are really effective at producing disciples. Kind of use the culture to reach the.

"Have passed Ristic loss and have attempted to also closed polling places, stuff early voting and take people's names off the voter rolls. Inspection has been removed. Judge Barren and Shelby Counting, Chief Justice Roberts wrote. Floating discrimination still exists. No one deaths that and my question to you is. Do you agree with Justice Roberts statement, Senator Harris My understanding of what remains of the Voting Rights Act. What happened in Shelby County is consistent with what you're describing the pre clearance requirement. As I understand, Shelby County remains in place and what the Supreme Court held unconstitutional is the coverage for me. So some states, which in 1965 had a history of discrimination, had to get pre clearance whenever they changed anything having to do with their voting procedures and other states didn't and I think Shelby County said that Congress can still pass a new coverage formula now articulating the criteria for jurisdictions that are discriminating and requiring pre clearance.

Holding steady the good news is dropping for the most vulnerable of the community's positivity rate for the entire county is 3.0. And the health equity positivity rate for the lowest quartile of areas in San Diego County.

Explicit Heuristics and Cheap Tests
"Today's episode we're going to. Switch over and talk about explicit. Explicit ristic's and I'm GonNa give you one specifically that's been on my mind recently, I think you'll find it useful. You can imagine an explicit heuristic sounding like a proverb or platitude. And I'll give you an example of one of these that we've talked about. So many times on this show. The, heuristic of explicit. Here's stick of making things smaller. This is something that you can use as. A tool, it's not just a rule, but it's something that you can pull out of your tool chest and say, I wonder what would happen if I tried to make something in this particular situation that is currently bigger, right? It's say complex subject. What if they broke down if I broke it down into smaller component parts? What would that do? So, you can see that these explicit heuristic six differ from implicit here six in that you can kind of call them up on purpose. You can use them as a tool. Lynn's to see your problems with. So the new explicit heuristic that I would like to use today. Is Very simple and you can use this whenever you're wondering what's a good use of my time or how can I choose which direction is better and the explicit heuristic I want you to remember. is find cheap tests, find cheap tests. So let's expound on this explicit heuristic because it may not be immediately clear what exactly we mean by cheap or what exactly we mean by tests. When we are faced with difficult decision really any decision at all We have an endless number of possibilities in almost every scenario even if it seems like we only have maybe two choices we probably have. An infinite number or close to an infinite number, right? So. How do we make the right decision and how do we identify opportunities are better direction for us? Let's see you have option A. and option B. in front of you, and it's not immediately clear which of these options. Is. Going to be the most valuable they both cost the same to implement but. Option a is hard to test. It's hard to validate an early stage whether option a is a good idea option b. on the other hand. There is an easy test we can validate on in the very earliest part of the effort towards be. So. It. Makes Sense. Then if you present it this way than anyone rational would choose option B. that seems like. With the information we have that it's the most obvious choice and the reason for that. Is because even though they cost the same amount and they have the same level of confidence, we have a faster ejection from option B. if it doesn't work out if the test fails. So. This heuristic is. A way of kind of practicing in particular principle, validating your direction validating your direction. So what this means is if you're headed a direction, how do you know it's the right direction? How do you know that this implementation of these these large features may be a large set of features that is going to serve your users or it's going to kind of carry you towards the goal that you care about. Is there a way? To test that is there a way to validate that direction? Early as possible in cheaply as possible. So this is also a tool that you can use when you're trying to decide without knowing. Right, without knowing how easy it is to test, you can ask this question, which option can we validate the easiest? which direction could we can pull the ripcord on? The fastest. And here's the most important part of this heuristic, right because it allows you to make decisions more fluently a little bit faster. It gets you out of the blocks mode. When you're trying to decide between two things. That's a completely stalled scenario. But if you can make easy decisions in other words, if you can say it's cheap, it is very and of low risk to go in this direction because we know that we can test this direction very quickly and if we decide to change direction. We can do that right away. Won't the only way you can do that is if you can find a cheap test. I want to be clear about what I mean by the word cheap I don't always mean monetarily cheap. Usually what this means is that it's easy it's. uncomplicated. To check this particular direction and it can be cheap monetarily. Of course, we're not going to leave that out, but also it can be quick. Time is absolutely an obvious resource and so a test that is quickly done might be considered cheap and if you had two tests and one took twice as long as the other but they both they both cost the same amount of energy or effort or or money than you would go with the one that was faster. And again, what's critical about finding cheap tests or going directions that allow for cheap tests? Is that instead of thinking or trying to predict all the way through? Which decision is the best decision to make right option a option B. we're trying to predict the. End Outcome of a or the end outcome of. We can ask a different and easier question to ask can we check both?
Small Problems and Principled Engineering
"What is it about small problems? That make them good as a default measure. Why should we always be thinking about our problems? In their smallest most atomic form. I want you to think back to a project with software projects if you have one in mind. Or really any kind of project at all. That had a lot of moving pieces. A lot of complexity. Maybe a lot of people dynamics involved with project. Maybe it's a school project where you had a lot of participants, a group project and Let's say that there was some conflict on that team or if it was a professional project a software project. There's a lot going on. Maybe there's multiple stakeholders. Maybe there's some weird API's is that you have to. Kind of integrate with. Maybe you're on a constraint time, line or certain parts of the project have better funding than other parts and all of this `asymmetry all of this. Heterogeneity in the project. This, is the hallmark of a complex system complex project, and the truth is most projects that we engage in. Particularly if they grow to a sufficient size, they will eventually become complex. And if you were to zoom out and look at them at some level. The complexity. Is Overwhelming. We can't really calculate the complexity with our own brains. In other words. We can't imagine what is the next most perfect decision to make and this is kind of a good. Here ristic for deciding whether a project at a particular. at a particular vantage point is too complex to think about as a whole. But. There's an interesting thing that happens when you zoom in. Once you zoom in a little bit. Things get a little less complex and that zooming can happen on multiple different. Types of axes for example you might zoom in on the time aspect. Maybe you don't know what the most important thing is to do. If you would look at in the next year, but perhaps you do know the most important thing to do in the next hour. Or vice versa, maybe the zooming in actually looks a little bit more like zooming out. Maybe you do know what the best thing is to do over the next year, but it's hard to determine what the best thing is to do in the next hour. If you zoom in to a particular part of the projects that has a homogeneous structure. Maybe it has homogeneous funding for example. Or that? Particular part of the project only works with one. You know fairly straightforward or even if that one piece of the project works with that old word, API. It's some vantage point at some zoom level. Once you go in deep enough. Things become simpler. And if you continue to zoom in. Things become nearly elementary. And it's at this zoom level. That I want you to focus your energy and your efforts. And not because it's easy either.

"Call the moral here Ristic in the moral here Ristic is revenge and at one point the a New York times actually wrote an editorial about that event and the editorial writer I think got it right and and the editorial writer wrote killing cookie made no sense at all actually but it felt right emotionally and the reason it didn't make sense intellectually of course is the idea that a crocodile would do what a crocodile does is hardly surprising that's what crocodiles do the brain is smaller than a wall not he is a creature largely of instincts particularly when it comes to food and he was doing what crocodiles do he was not a moral agent you know which I would argue is one of the biggest differences between humans and other species we are moral agents so the interesting thing is that Haas the owner in some ways related to cookie as of cookie was a person that cookie was a moral agent and in some ways that's a variation of what Jim Thompson was doing with the book wasn't it which is your assuming that the animal has agency and behavior things are has human like qualities and that you're there for a Blige or required to treat this other creature as if in some ways it had human like qualities I'm sure that if you interviewed Haas he he you know clearly would know the difference at an intellectual level between a crocodile in a person but you're quite right he's basically treated them the same way that we would a person this similarly played out in a bizarre incident that happened in Tennessee where an elephant named merry killed into Grunwald in a circus parade in nineteen sixty they hung the elephant to death and you know to me that was it you know the ultimate example of where we have to pour more flies animals that we give it capital punishment in a sense for something that was clearly not morally culpable so people listening to the stories would say well those are really you know crazy stories but as you point out in the book this this tendency we have to answer for more flies animals is actually really ubiquitous you draw a contrast between the way we relate to the giant panda and the giant salamander tell me what the giants on the matter is what it looks like and how our attitudes to what these different animals are shaped by the ways in some ways that we have to put my face down yeah the so the animals in some way or similar the giant panda and the giant Chinese salamander in that they're both in danger they both live in China and they're both really special although in quite different ways the a giant Chinese salamander is basically a six foot long bag of brown slime with BT are to me they're like they're striking I wouldn't say that they're beautiful but they're stunning Justin their size and their I don't know do you have to be there with her charismatic but I think most people would agree with that but you're not going to see the world wildlife fund putting a picture of the agenda Cheney salamander on their logo instead they use the panda and the panda you know in some ways looks a little bit like a human but it's basically a faker in the sense that it has these giant circles around its eyes which is valid is called baby release so we look at that panda and it basically logs onto that jams into that that maternal instinct that we have when we see creatures with big eyes and impose on them that in some ways it reminds us of a human infant to for example researchers have shown that one of the biggest predictors of whether or not people will give money to save animals is the size of the animal's eyes this certainly have it twenty times the size when we come back I like cats actually improve our lives we're better off in terms of their psychological and physical health than non pet owners but so are people with Mercedes Benz X. your brain I'm Shankar Vedantam this is NPR this week on says you spoiled food I don't know that salted fish goes bad you never have locks of my hands over his house the only log again as fast as it's fun and everyone's a winner says you play the game.
Automating Electronic Circuit Design with Deep RL w/ Karim Beguir
"Kareem is CO founder and CEO at Institute Kareem. Welcome back to the Tacoma area. Podcast pleasure to speak again. Absolutely so if Kareem's name sounds familiar. That's because we spoke We're trying to figure this out. It was between a year and a half a year ago The show actually was published in September. Was Number three hundred two and you should definitely check it out for Kareem's full background But croom wanted to give us a brief overview of what you're up to as well as an update from when we last spoke absolutely so I it's a pleasure to be back in. Continue our conversation on aside. He's been pretty invent follow. The Lot has happened as you know instead. Deep is a decision making a startup. So we focus on Problems related to making complex decisions We also do our own innovation and the tried to be helpful to the community and we've made progress basically on this three areas. We've been able to release innovative products. In decision making we've also been able to publish innovate in research Publishing original you know like pieces. That were actually. What come that nervous where we got the spotlight presentation for example with Google declined? And we've also been very active on the community side organizing major events in Africa and basically lots of young talents. Find say super -tunities in there and the we most recently saw one another at Nuremberg and had a chance to catch up briefly at the black dinner where you really piqued my interest around one of the company's new initiatives or products which is called DP. Cb tell us about what is absolutely so this'll be actually started with with conversation Two years ago I I had a dinner with a good friend of mine. Who is actually an expert in hardware design worked on like no chips for a well known phones etc and we were speaking about like. What is he doing this particular sector? And he was like not that much like particular like busy stunt for printed circuit boards so basically those ships that you will find with all sorts of Consumer Electronics Products Iphones Speakers Bluetooth etc and You know the situation in that market was that auto routers basically automated systems to connect the different components like built. Basically the electrical secretary have been going on for many years but they were not that make and we were like. Hey that sounds like an interesting problem to to look at. We started looking into it eventually. This good front now. Be True was now meeting or hardware team joint steady and we've worked very hard on this project and we're very proud to have been able to achieve goals and in November last year we've released it in. Beta form and it is a world first for the first time we have a system that is end to end fully deployable and scalable on the cloud capable of understanding how to route chips essential and now last time we spoke we. Our conversation was focused on the work. Your company was doing applying reinforcement learning to logistics is deep be also based on reinforcement learning absolutely and this is a very strong commonality and like design philosophy between or or products. So in a sense. Let me give you an example. We've we've continued to do great work in logistics and the recently last September. We've won a major contract for example with that. Chaban the German railway company and to give idea this is about routing trains on a large scale talking about ten thousand trains a day and some think on some thirty three thousand kilometers of railway but downs out their communities between routing trains and routing chips on a board and so we realized that the projects and the type of research that study is doing is actually applicable to multiple fields. And when it comes to imbed Ziegler printed circuit boards. They're putting compelling so. We went full speed ahead and this turned out to be office product. Alrighty so when you initially met with your friend your mention that they're you know while this these auto routers have been in place or have been in use for many years. They were not without their challenges and problems. What were some of those challenges and problems? And what was the opportunity to introduce? A I think Reuters have been the they've been. There's been a lot of great work. Donald Reuters but in terms of like design philosophy. The design philosophy is all about essentially using ristic's to solve problems and we spoke a little bit about this in Bester conversation so it's very similar to let's say what was the status of software for chess before out. Fazio came out the systems which were very well actually but still are built on your way. Sticks fought for the hardest problems. Ristic's have limits and a system that can essentially mobilize learning can. Learning get scale can get better results when it comes in particular for in the status of printed circuit. Boards it is actually incredible and we are in twenty twenty that actually complex sucrets still designed manually and the reason why people design those Mandy is because auto routers essentially a failed to deliver the goods to the degree of quality which is expected by high quality customers so we see a really compelling opportunity with modern built on the latest innovation. Some of it actually developed in house we actually have patents on the work done for the. There is an opportunity to accelerate the design cycle of products. Because it's not just about quality you mean. Engineers do absolutely amazing work and have amazing intuition. It's about the speed. Human engineer could take in certain cases multiple weeks if not months to completely root complex with more than we do believe instead that this timing can be proud to twenty four hours this if done at scale it would be tremendous for the industry and it would accelerate the product cycle. We are using consumer electronics to have a cycle every six months of the year. There's a new version coming. We believe that any I could actually accelerate A. That's that's a that psycho and as a consequence also make it easier to design new products and experiment and ultimately unleash more human creativity and mobilizing gay. You mentioned complexity of the boards as being one of the challenges. What are we talking about when we talk about complexity? We I'm assuming we're measuring that in for example number of components but having worked with circuit boards before there are also issues like the number of layers and things like that when you talk about a complex board. What exactly are you talking about? So about really consists in basically an. Kyi's that we need to connect and as a consequence like those guys they can be what needs to be connected so you have fairs of components essential get need to be connected and they could be thousands of those and as you mentioned rightly there could be multiple layers simple designs start with two or four layers that you could have a lot more and the more you have layers the more components you have to connect the heart of the problem. It is an empty heart problem and so this is where I can help. But you can you when you're looking at the most difficult designs that we take human engineers significant amount of time to solve
"So you're forums as you probably know from feelings in the gym are used in many exercises things like you'll pull ups you'll rose your dad less and even your bicycles all involve a certain amount of forum strength and if you lock forum strengthen your ability to build shrimp and other pulse your body or also compromised on this is essentially due to the strong forearms are the strong your grit. You have more squeezing force when you have undeveloped a week forearms. These muscles might be the first to tire out when you're doing something like a row and you'll never actually really tax the most of your trying to work. Let you push your train chain on a dead left because you'll forearms give out too quickly so get fit guy. Brock Armstrong caused this. The Weakest Link in the kinetic chain if your forums. And letting you down. And this basically means that when we're doing something like a pull up we're not only engaging the major muscles that we're targeting. Shia back for example put up but you're also including all the muscles involved in the kinetic chain that performs the movement including so in this case your wrist you'll hand your forums you biceps on Soham. See your bike. Mont not only lots my knowledge to be challenged. If you're doing a pull up because your hands your grip fails before the muscles even start to get now reforms on tortuously stubborn and difficult to grow some lucky enough to have been gifted genes that allow for four hundred element some of the not so lucky and we have to use specialized training to build up these areas. As 'cause it's really a case of trading them hard and often some people definitely find that their forums can develop if you're just handling heavy weight and regular basis during exercise in saved not using wrist wraps for example because they getting is sufficient stimulation whilst doing that but with most muscles they can also be trained independent. May if you want to get optimal results. According to David Robson a body building dot com editor given their composition. Ristic Stanzas and risk. Flexes IS W- as well as the longer bracket radiologists the forums. All a pretty complex grouping on each be targeted with that allow for full contraction so in David's experience he's found beneficial to train forearms at the end of biceps training and on their own two days per week before seeing a proper no small results and he found it valuable to talk at the forearms variety of exercises on rep ranges to keep them stimulated and growing and training them frequently and hard. He's actually found the as LEDA upper. Body strength increases as well as the lifting Nashi making a safe transition to a heavier overall weight without the fair the forums.

So what exercises are recommended while I up training the wrist. Extensive extended enable the Hon to extend backwards they comprised of eight different heads on these muscles. Run the outside line for four such development affectively a number of reverse grit movements needs to be done sir. Thoughts things like Bob L. Reverse risk coils cable reverse curls and Soham now the great Texas is the Pharma's walks to build solid forearms to find anything like a weighted objects will not be kettlebells dumbbells. Even Bob Bell said the blocks tires or about anything else you can get your hand on plates and simply pick up the object assault walking for as long as you can obviously as well ups and Chin ups great exercises. You can even try hiding from a ball. For THIRTY SECONDS. Alm straights. You could do. Dumbbell wrist extensions says Bench holding dumbbell on them without lifting your own of your thoughts co the number as far as you can toward your bicep. I maintain a tight grip throughout this movement. Obviously slowly lowered the dumbbell back to neutral. So there's lots of next is you can't do train your forearms independently into really actually give them the the focus. They might deserve if you are trying to improve your your grip strength so that might sound unnecessary or you feel. You don't need to do them. You'll forums can be trained like any other exercise and they can benefit. You'll pull up shell rose. And you're dead lifts by by improving your your squeezing power and if like my friend do grip is less than you down than definitely. Give it a try
Where is AI Heading? Interview with Nick Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Wired
"Hello and welcome to the AI today. Podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. Our guest today is Nick Thompson. Who is the editor in chief at? I nick thanks so much for joining us on AI. Today Oh thank you so much delighted to be here. Yeah welcome neck and thank you so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at wired I Journalists and journalists since I stopped street musician. I'm in my early twenties and prior to wired I worked at the New Yorker around the digital side and then I came over and became the editor in chief of wired. I started the same week. Is DONALD TRUMP? So it's relatively easy to track them. How Long. I've had this job in about three years now. Two years in a month and my role is to assign stories at stories figure out the direction of wired on the HR office figure out our business model view with ethical questions involving sponsored content. And every now and then go on. Cool podcast talk about things. We care a lot about like artificial intelligence. Well great well thanks. We drill to heavier. Because I think you know part of the reason why we have you on our podcast. Is You have an interesting perspective. You obviously hearing from the industry and hearing from pundits and you're hearing of course from what end users are talking about but also a governments are doing have interesting perspective. That may be many others. Don't have on what's happening for artificial intelligence and so as you may see is impacting every industry. It's impacting all sorts of corners of our ecosystem. So how have you seen a evolving over the past few years and for your audience? How have you seen your audience of all in its understanding and interaction with artificial intelligence? It's interesting you know. The debate over a I has conversation. Area has changed and all kinds of wonderful ways since I started this job and started really digging into it. You know three years ago. Four years ago the public conversation over a I was much more about super intelligence and much. More bowed concerns about runaway TAC. Much more caught up in the hype over the last couple of years. We've narrowed and deepened understanding back to now. It's much more about okay. What former they I is going to be. The MOST IS GONNA BE MACHINE. Learning as far as we can see are going to go beyond machine. Learning let's talk about the ethical debates but let's not talk about them in the superficial ways. We really talked about them a year or two ago. Just talk about him and more complex nuanced ways much talk about where is actually being used successfully where it's not. I've talked about it's real limitations. Too I feel like part of my own. Understanding of the issue has deepened in profound ways. Over the last three years editing stories about hey right but I also think that the reader wired have become much more educated on the topic much more interested in it and much more involved than ever increasingly interesting debates about all things related to I. It's interesting that you say that because we've seen a lot of the use cases that we talk about and with our clients as well. We say you know this would be a great application. They're very mundane back office processes things like that and people are like. Oh yeah well. That's kind of a boring use case and we're like yes but it's an incredibly useful one and you should probably start with it and it's going to save a lot of money and time so it's interesting you know you've been seeing that as well where we've gone from this talk about artificial general intelligence is very you know super ristic science fiction view in some sense of Ai. To how can we use it now in every day? So we've talked about how. Ai Is impacting just about every industry including journalism as well. So how do you see? Changing journalism in the coming years and what ethical considerations should be discussed and put in place around this? Yeah I mean I I just want to completely agree with your statement or one of the companies. I read about a lot of facebook. And you know when I started people like Oh my God. Facebook IS USING AI. To create language that will displace humanity. And now hey is basically like a really useful tool for getting porn off facebook right. It's much simpler row tasks that are much better accomplished with assistance. Humans journalism question every profession is going to be changed in interesting ways. Biracial right because professional events systems using. I will be able to do things that we used to have. Humans do so when I think about journalism. What are the things that we do now? That machines can do better from a reporting process. I think that machines and it'll be very help and identifying patterns potentially defined stories so there will be a group of reporters class reporters a type of reporter in the future who will harness AI to analyze databases identify patterns find investigative stories. There will also be kinds of stories that we no longer need to write to the Washington. Post is already experimenting with having a systems writing basic pieces so Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore. Orioles for to to happen. Because someone's home run and Joe got so they're kind of wrote stories that people like to read that you don't really need a human writing you can probably right about stock market and as time passes and as machines get better like those stories will increasing complexity. You won't be able to write three thousand word narratives profiles using an AI system. But you'll be able to write a certain kind class of story within the tasks that we have you right. It'll be changed a little bit. Copy editing an interesting profession. Where High End. Copy editing like trying to identify voice style that will stay with humans right to kind of copy. Editing Donna wired but there's a different level of copy editing that I think probably will be automated replaced by. There's fact checking that you smart a system could do so. There's certain tasks within the stack of tasks that make up the creation of an article. That will be done with I in a certain set of them. That won't be a lot of journalism in ball. Human to human contact human human reporting becoming friends with somebody eventually developing a relationship where they trust you to give you the information that makes an important story like a machine is not gonna be able to develop a trusted relationship with the source story but a machine will be able to do copy editing. The fact check legal review parts of that more efficiently than a human can so few ways. It's GonNa Change. They're probably about twenty five thousand others but that start that's interesting. You know one of the things we've noticed it. I don't think related specifically artificial intelligence but the whole idea of the long form article has really sort of. It's become a lot I mean. Maybe I'm just noticing it more become a lot. More prevalent icon. There's like bringing you into the emotion of the story and sort of like you know carrying rather than just talking about the facts of some story just today. I was reading this book about somebody who was lost in the Costa Rican rainforest and somebody wrote a book about it and and instead of just talking about that sort of brings you into the story and I found that to be really engaged. Something of course that you can't really do what they item wondering if one is sort of like a reaction to the other which is that. These sort of automated pieces are taking the place of sort of this more sorta wrote journalism and in the place now. Journalists are more storyteller switch bringing people into the narrative. I mean does something. I don't know if that's something that's intentional or I'm just noticing it more. I think that I think it is true that there are more of those stories and it probably you are seen more of them in your newsletters in the publications you read. I don't think it's a reaction to a I yet or it. Is You know. Five percent due to ask generated through. I think that is much more. A reaction to the decline of advertising supported journalism so one of the big wrecks or phenomenon dinner industries that the price of ads on websites and permissions like both prices. Going down in the Seltzer rate is going down. So it's much harder to generate revenue off of content. Right if you get if you publish a ton of stories and get a ton of readers. It's hard to

"The Chinese government is accusing the United States of reading fear by Ristic restricting travel and pulling its citizens out of that country even as the death toll has climbed past the three hundred sixty mark with corona virus all it has done could only create and spread fear which is a bad example the reason they're upset is because they have essentially isolated China with that decision the U.

Management Anti-Patterns - False Homogeneity
"So this this week we are focusing on management anti patterns. And I'm going to take a step back before you as a non manager developer before you turn this episode off once you understand something that management is not about a title management is not about a role on a team although there certainly are distinctly important roles for managers on healthy teams depending on and of high. Your team is structured management. Is something that we all have to do. And the basic thesis here that no one else is going to care about your time or or have as much insight into the time that you spend and to your values your priorities as you are even if you were to share everything thing that you're feeling and thinking with another person they won't experience it to the same visceral degree that you will and so as the person and who is most bought in the person who cares the most about how your time and how your efforts are managed higher life and work irk are managed. Only you have the opportunity to take the responsibility to become a good manager for yourself. So we're talking about management anti patterns and that applies to managers that are Kinda formerly titled Managers but it also so applies to everyone else. WHO's listening to this episode right now and you can choose what you do with this information but you can kind of implement these ideas both at a team level and at a personal management level? So what is the Management Anti Pattern that kills focus that destroys focus and actually actually this turns out to be very common pattern that managers tin to follow and as it turns out this same pattern the same mindset. It doesn't just kill focus. It also creates an inaccurate picture of the world around you. This this anti pattern that we're talking about is the pattern of false equivalence. Another way to describe it is false homogeneous entity and you'll recognize this pattern immediately really when you hear about it this is different From a the kind of fallacy of false equivalence instead. What we're talking about this anti pattern is perceiving or communicating two things to be similar or the same on some dimension whether or not actually the same moreover doing this by default? So think about it like this. Imagine so you have a backlog of tasks and you and your team are supposed to start working on these tasks and building product right so this anti pattern which show up immediately if I as a manager said will all of these tasks are equally important all of them have the same level of criticality to this project. So what do you do with this information as developer. We'll becomes very difficult all to make decisions about what to work on. And so you have to choose as a developer. What you're you're going to work on first and then second and third and so on? So how do you choose the unstated reality when we communicate kate that things are for example of equal importance. Is that the order in which we do. Things therefore does not matter because is implicitly. If something is more important than another thing on a timeline it makes sense it kind of makes logical sense offense to do the most important things I and indeed. This is a good here ristic that we have kind of built into our brains when we're trying to organize what at work we wanted to do. And here's the problem. Then we see all work as equally important are heuristic for what we should do. I now fall back to something that is difficult to agree on. For example one person might want to work on the easiest thing I because they're drained the tired another person might want to work on the hardest thing. I additionally this kind of false equivalence or false congeniality of these tasks doesn't take into account the possibility of dependencies. A given task may not be very very important on its own but if it is a kind of parent dependency to multiple other tasks will then it kind of inherits the priority of the tasks that what are dependent on it now. I do want to take a step back and recognize that we are simplifying an issue. That is much more complex that planning planning your tasks and figuring out what is the highest priority is not as simple as you know ordering things based on priority and then inheriting thing Inheriting that priority up the chain of dependencies and then calling it done. That's not the message of this episode instead. Message of this episode. Is that win. We communicate as if some pool of objects whether that's tasks or people or even days on the calendar when we communicate or Think or build systems around the false idea that those days or tasks or people are somehow equivalent into each other. We build on a false reality this same issue crops up when you try to replace one developer over with another you take an existing developer off of her project you hire a new developer and you assume incorrectly as a manager that those two developers will have equivalent performance. What you're forgetting to take into account when you make these assumptions is the time that it takes for example apple for that developer to simply onboard into the project itself even if those two developers had exactly the same skill sets which is very unlikely to begin with the on boarding time has some switchover? There's some overhead there additionally. It's possible that this new developer doesn't have the same kind of chemistry St on the team and so even at the very highest level. Even if you had exactly the same skill set there are two major areas that makes these developers outputs very likely to be different from each other and additionally don't know the developer that you've moved onto another other project what their output will be on that project either. So what do we do to combat this idea of false homogeneous entity. How can we get to a place where we recognize that every single task that we have to do has a different level of priority? One solution starts with your disposition. It starts with your assumptions about the world around you and these are difficult to change but when you're evaluating in a pool when we're talking about a pool we mean two or more subjects that have kind of the base unit is the same both are tasks or both are people were both. Are you know some base unit start with the assumption of of implicit diversity. What do we mean by implicit diversity? We mean that the output of two people is going to be different the preferences of those two people is going to be different the priority of two tasks the difficulty of those tasks. All of these kind kind of attributes characteristics start with the assumption that these characteristics are diverse. They're different from each other. They diverge from each other.
Automated Machine Learning with Erez Barak
"All right everyone I am here in Orlando at Microsoft ignite. And I've got the pleasure of sitting with Ariza Barack Ariza's group manager for as you're as welcome to the uh-huh podcast. Thank you thank you great to be here. Great to be with you. Sound super excited about this conversation. We will be diving into a topic that is generating raining a lot of excitement in the industry. And that is Auto Amal and the automation of the data science process But before we dig into to that. I'd love to hear how you got started working in Melanie. I it's a great question because I've been working with data for quite a while and I think roughly about five to ten years ago. It became apparent that the next chapter for anyone working with data has to we've itself so the AI world and the world of opportunity with AI is really really only limited by the amount of data. You have the the uniqueness of the day you have and access you have data And once you're able to connect those two worlds and a lot of things like predictions new insights new directions sort of come out of the woodwork. So seeing that opportunity imagining that potential has naturally led me to work with the. I was lucky. Enough to join the AZURE. Ai Group and does really three focus areas within that group. One of them is machine learning. How do we enable data scientists of those skills to operate through the machine learning life cycle starting from the data to the training registering the mouse to put them in productions in managing them a process? We call Emma Lops so just looking at that end to end and understanding understanding how we enable others to really go through that process in a responsible trusted in known way. There's been a super exciting journey so far and so did you. Do you come at this primarily from a data science perspective or research perspective engineering perspective. I I think one of the above or all of the above. You know I'm actually going to go with all of the above. I think it'd be remiss to think that if you're gonna hit it from a data science perspective live and you're trying to build a product. Yeah really looking to build the right set of products for people to use as they go through their journey. You'd you'd probably miss out on an aspect of it if you think about. The engineering perspective will probably end up with great. Infrared doesn't align with any of the data science. So you really you gotta think between the two worlds and how one empowers the other. You really gotta figure out where most data scientists ovo skills need to help. WanNa help are looking for tools and products and services on Azure to help them out. And I think that's the part I find and most compelling sort of figuring that out and then really going deep where you land right because if we end up a billing sticky. We're going to spend a whole lot of time with our the data signs customers data science internal teams and figure out. Well how should I look like but if you're building something like ultra mel that that's targeted not only at the deeper data scientists but also the deeper rooted data professionals. You WanNA spend some time with them and understand not only what they need but Kahad that applies to the world of data science. And what were you working on before Azzura. So before as R- a Microsoft I worked for a team in culture data retreated created the set of data platforms for our internal teams and prior to joining Microsoft. I worked in the marketing automation. Space Company called op Fai and again the unique assets. We were able to bring to the table as part of op. Find the world of marketing automation were always data-based. We're always sort of looking at the data assets marketers had instead. What else can we get out of it? Machine learning wasn't as prevalent at the time. But you could track back to a lot of what we did at that time. And how machine learning would have helped if it was used on such a general basis. Yeah one of the first Machine learning being use cases that I worked with were With folks that were doing trying to do like lead scoring and likelihood likelihood to buy propensity to buy types of use cases. I mean that's been going on for a really long time. So we're on a podcast so you can see me smiling but we did a lot out of a worker on building glow lead scoring okay and you ristic's and manual realistic sense of general us. Ticks and you're is that the customer could customize and today today you've seen that to really evolved to a place where there's a lot of machine learning behind I mean it's perfect for machine learning right you've got all data it's fresh it's coming. You know does insights sites. That are really hard to find out once you start slicing and dicing it by regions or by size of customers. It gets even more interesting. So the whole the makings for you're adding machine learning really make. You are getting pretty excited about various Nice Nice. You want to dive into talking about auto. I Mel this is probably for the level of excitement that and demand for Ah Auto Amal and enthusiasm That folks have for the topic not to mention the amount of confusion that there is for the topic. I probably not covered it nearly enough on the podcast. You know certainly when I think of when I think of Auto Amal there's a long kind of academic history behind the technical approaches that That drive it it. But it was really popularized For many You know with Google's cloud autumn L. Twenty eighteen and like before that they had this New York Times. Sometimes you know they had this PR win. That was like a New York Times article talking about how you know I was GonNa create itself and I think that contributed a lot to for lack of a better term in the space but then we see it. You know all over the place. There are other approaches. More focused on kind of citizen data data science. I love to just start with how you define Auto Amal and you know is is is your take on it as a space and you know it's role and importance that kind of thing I think I can. I really relate to many of the things things you touched on. So maybe I'll start and this is true for many things. We do Adra but definitely for Auto Mail on your point around academic roots Microsoft Microsoft. Has this division gold. Sr Microsoft Research. And it's really a set of researchers who look into leading edge topics and drive the world of research in different areas and that is when we first got in our team introduced to Oto Mel. So so they've been doing. Research of a subset of that team has been doing research around the ultimate meal area for quite a few years. They've been looking looking at it. There have been thinking. Well you know it started yes. I've heard centers AI. Making A. I don't know when he started getting into it. Like what does it me. And then it means to be honest. It means a lot of things to many people. It's quite normal. Used will be quite frank. There is no one standard industry the standard definition. That says. Here's what I can tell you what it is for us to continue what it is for our customers. I can tell you where we're seeing. It make a ton of impact and it comes to using machine learning capabilities in order to help you being the data scientists create machine capabilities in a more efficient in a more accurate in a more structured fashion.
Leverage as a Career Heuristic
"Many past episodes we talk about some of the pitfalls of our biases as of our cognitive distortions and often this discussion turns to the concept of heuristic here risks being he kind of rules of thumb that we use when making snap judgments and here is six are incredibly important unfortunately often they get a negative rap been on this show so in today's episode I WanNa talk about a specific heuristic the you can use to kind of drive your career growth James Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to Develope my going the show is self driven developers find clarity perspective and purpose in their careers before we talk about the ristic I want to discuss today I want to take a step back and think about how we as developers as engineers designers donors how do we set our goals of course in the context of a company you may have revenue goals you may have you know official okay ours everyone agrees on but there's a distinct line in the sand between the common goals making more money and the more specific goals like having a positive impact on a particular group of people no matter how you create your goals almost everyone falls back to some kind of basic rules of thumb for example almost every once whatever they do to be sustainable and I don't necessarily mean environmentally sustainable of course that could be a part of your values the people don't tend to set out with the expectation and the desire to fail or to stop doing something that they're doing quickly the Hicks of earning resources or social recognition social appreciation these are the heuristic we tend to share and these serious six can kind of be automatic they're built in we don't have to sit down and write down that we want Social Nisshin we know how to sit down and write down that we want more resources so that we can survive and thrive so we have a bunch of these automatic curious expert what if we wanted to kind of create or build another set of heuristic on top of this most of the time when we think about our values news it is not necessarily at the heuristic level in other words there aren't really rules of thumb we have to think very hard about how we measure certain decisions against the the values today I wanna talk about a heuristic that will help you grow your career that may not necessarily be obvious it may not necessarily pop out to you from your nature or your subconscious but before we get into talking about this particular heuristic I want to introduce it with it a caveat and that is that no one is going to care about your career more than you do think about that for Ramona no one will have the capability of carrying about your career more than you do now many of you have probably heard this in some form or another that nobody's going to care about your life or your job or your income more than you do and it's true but some of the connotation nations need to be cleared up here this doesn't mean that no one else cares about your career at all and also doesn't mean that everyone else is out to get you or that they will put their careers above yours very often decisions are mutually benefit missile they benefit both your career and the other person's so have to be careful when we are thinking about making moves for our own careers we have to be careful in assuming that no one else cares at all about our careers when the truth is probably somewhere in between I've heard some pushback on this idea also from the angle that other people can't care as much about my career as as I do and I think the the better ways think about this as no one else will invest as much in your career as you will no one else will invest as much in your careers you will and when we think about it this way they he clears up any kind of confusion so let's talk about this heuristic I will talk about what the heuristic is them we're GonNa do a quick sponsor break in come back and talk about how it applies in particular scenarios in your career you're going to have moments where you have to you negotiate and negotiation isn't always about getting a better salary it's also not about getting a promotion of course those are moments of negotiation but you're negotiating all the time negotiation is out of our lives pretty much every day now we often think about negotiation as getting the Best Bang for our buck getting a better price on something but negotiations much more than that at a fundamental level negotiation is the process of resolution the process of finding common ground with another person in order to take the next step essentially anytime you are making decisions a specially when you're making collaborative decisions you probably have some dynamic of negotiation happening additionally you can imagine that negotiation happens within ourselves as well we seem to have two sides in an even decision the one side that wants to do the thing that it is immediately gratifying or maybe the thing that is safe and the other side that wants to do the thing that's long-term better for us or maybe a bit more risky often the decision making process for an individual is kind of a mock trial between these two sides thing to arguments of each one and then deciding which one is the most persuasive and so it benefits us to understand and to be good good and negotiating pretty much all negotiation relies on leverage and this is the heuristic the you can use used to grow your career now I want to be clear that I think there are a lot of ethical implications in this discussion because leverage can be anes Bhai totally innocent and even beneficial processes where you can gain leverage through very unethical processes even illegal processes like tale in the same way that earning resources as a heuristic you can come by those resources in both illegal in legal ways to remember that with every heuristic that you use I e need to bring with you the tools of inspection in the filtering that you have through your values and through your ethics and of course using the filters of societal norms and even what's legal but once we get on the other side of that once we get to the place where we can gain leverage we can build leverage for ourselves in ways that are totally above board we provide ourselves a much better position in any negotiation

Firefly Wants to Send Your Stuff into Orbit
"The business wars daily is brought to you by Staples work is changing, but Staples is changing right along with it. The new Staples delivers solutions to help your team be more connected productive, and inspired. Learn more at Staples dot com slash change. From one I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Thursday, June twenty seven do you have a research project piece of artwork or an invention that you'd like to send up into space? Sounds crazy, right? Wrong firefly aerospace is offering just that an opportunity to put your project into orbit around the end of this year. The Texas based company develops rockets intended to launch small satellites into space and help publicize its mission to make space accessible to everyone firefly will accept payloads ranging from children's art work to university experiments to inventions by space entrepreneurs for free the cargo will go into orbit on alpha the company's first small satellite launch vehicle think of alpha like a taxi into space, but a taxi that carries cargo not people firefly has reserved some of alpha unused space for your payload. Owed the companies taking applications on its website through the end of June, the free payloads are part of the company's dream program that's an acronym for dedicated research and education, accelerator mission company, founder Tom are Kucic is a former NASA and SpaceX engineer, he says he's always wanted to boost interest in the stem fields that science technology engineering and math. The dream program is his manifestation of that desire, the quest for space travel inspire stem interests, like no other endeavor. The company says, alpha has been a long time in the making unlike other startup space companies like SpaceX and Jeff Bezos blue origin, firefly CEO didn't make a fortune elsewhere before starting his company in two thousand fourteen he kept it funded with small amounts from venture capitalists until twenty sixteen when a combination of financial and legal problems Sankt, the company it filed for bankruptcy and competitors.

What the G-20 summit means for currencies
"Joining us as mark mccormack head global head of f._x. strategy at t._d. securities mark thanks so much for joining us i wanted to start with the g. twenty and kind of how you think the various scenarios coming out of the g twenty could impact currencies kinda how are you positioning yourself there yeah thanks for having me to start but for the twenty i think it's it's interesting to think about that this is a part of an event ristic goes into a longer process of of the trade wars but to kind of think around some of the scenarios there's obviously the worst case which is escalating which is you know talks breakdown u._s. lapsed the additional three hundred billion worth of tariffs on china that seems seemingly unlikely at this point but the other scenarios are generally are base cases which is we agree to a framework to restart talks although we do not reach new deal so i think i think those are the two kind of most focused on outcomes and i would say ours is definitely the latter where it's agree to i guess to disagree but we're not reaching a deal anytime soon do you still or do you view the deputies yen as a safe haven in and around these talks that's historically been one of its attributes is that still the case in your mind i think it's it's a bit of a misnomer but i think what's really important about the japanese yen is if you have to think about the capital flows and if you think about avonex and quantitative easing and all the things that's happened in japan japan has the world's largest excess savings which for many years now has been deployed in the rest of the world equity market and also fixed income so what what really drives the yen on risk off is it's really the japanese bringing their money home so the fact that when when markets turn a bit sour and global equities have a lot of all tila ty- the japanese on strengthening because the yen flows are coming back into japan mccormick my wager is they say in england on the red sox let's painful right now i need to make some money back quick mark can you trade off asaka can you try Trade-off g twenty. i don't think so i think the problem is especially speaking with a lot of clients last especially the last couple of months is everyone kinda looks at a lot of these events is binary and even if we think about brexit and some of the other things that are kind of overhanging it's no one that we really kind of speak with that has investment thesis is really kind of comfortable deploying risk into vents you know they're tradeable we have trades of the week and and other ways we like to think about tactical trades but i think for some of the broader money managers these aren't becoming risks that there's just too much uncertainty and binary risks are just too hard to trade becomes a bit more of a gamble can we see big figure moves or is it more of a grind pair to pair i think we're getting to a point where we're going to start seeing big figure moves i think the last time i was on we talked about the outlook for the broad dollar and i think what we've seen the past couple of weeks is really reinforces that there's a top in the broad dollar and things that we had focused on earlier in the year was kind of return to the carry trade dollar that was weaker against emerging markets on reach for yield and i think what we're seeing now over the past couple of weeks is a major pivot not just for merging markets for the broad dollar but for the euro to start to strengthen for the yen to strengthen and for the the broad feds trade dollar to finally turn and start to re rekindle that bears trying to was on before it was disrupted last year so it's interesting mark so about the euro in particular to seems that the economic uncertainty in and around europe particularly southern europe persists what can euro do right here so i think you want to say about the euro kinda like this it's it's kind of an asset that's got a tremendous amount of bad news parts priced in it's especially on the u._s. dollar side of it it's the dollar seems to no longer responding well to i guess you would call it good news and i think the thing with the euro that's really important is that there's really not much more easy can do to try to weaken the euro they could try to cut rates that they have to have a tearing system but we're also dealing with the central banker who's a bit of a lame duck and i think in the in the second half of the year we'll know who the who's going to replace druggy but i think the important thing for the euro is the economy is is stabilizing it's no longer decelerating there's tremendous amount of bad news priced in our positioning evaluation models show that the market is extremely short euro and we showed that the euro's relatively cheap on a medium-term basis and i think what you're seeing if there's a broad base broad based anti u._s. dollar trade which i didn't this is why people are focusing on gold the euro along with the end become two very strong forms of reserve currencies that are that are also dollar traits well then let's pull that in your advantage at t._d. securities by your work with preah misery and if you fulled in her fixed income call with your foreign-exchange mix what does this signal for yield and particularly full faith and credit yield yeah it's a great question so what it is is it's the start of a fed easing cycle that extends into into next year and i think what you get is the fed essentially cutting rates if you think about where the u._s. ten year real rate is about thirty three basis points right now where's it going to be in a year it could be it could be back to close to zero but then why do we need that if we have cleared a solid economy well i think if you kind of look at the path of the yield curve what you're getting is is central banks are seems to be their cushioning for the potential downside that would manifest if the trade wars were to escalate and so i think what the yield curve in in the fixed income markets telling us that the central banks are taking out insurance but then what is good enough to to stabilize the economy where where central banks start to normalize and the next eighteen months or so so i think what what's really important is that we're kind of on the precipice right now especially with trade wars that the global economy could could get shifted into a negative feedback loop i would central banks are trying to do is stave off that worst case scenario and if they can do that then they can get that relation and so you know i think that's the impact where it's you know we think about the lags in acts of monetary policy this could kind of help cushion a slowdown as we move into twenty twenty record things t._d.
"ristic" Discussed on Founders Talk
"But I mean, it's really fascinating the way that the air. You know, I look back over a pitch to eggs from their seed round in there. Just like some of them were like well. Yeah. That is still a good idea. We're still planning on doing. When yet in other ones are just so laughably bad. I'm like, why did why did anybody think that was a good idea? But the thing about raising seed money is like you're really trying to convince investors of a couple of things like you're not trying to convince them that you are a profitable company, right or that they need to like that's kind of more the growth phase. It's much later. Face kind of approach what you're trying to convince him of is that this is a real problem. This is a a legitimate approach to that problem. And I am a person who can figure out what the solution to that problem is going to look like, regardless of of, you know, you're almost like trying to just sort of sell the positioning of the founders rather than the particular solution because any seed venture firm is going to know that whatever thing you're pitching right now, you're going to change it four or five times before you achieve product market fit. So from their point of view, it's like do I think this is a legit thing. And do I is this a space. We want to be in. Right. So what that also means is like, what's. In your and this is I don't know people. This is a controversial opinion a lot of people probably disagree. But I sort of think like what's in your pitch deck almost just doesn't matter. Right. It's like the main thing you're pitching is just here's a big thing. I know about it. You should give me a lot of money. That's that's basically it you need to have the pitch deck because it's it's part of the whole ceremony of it. But like the products that are included in there, or the approaches that include are like everybody knows that you've actually thought that the problem, and you have some indications of how you might go about generating revenue, basically, right, right? But I mean, it's kind of like, I don't know like any any VC who really nitpicks your model? That's in your pitch deck. Proceed funded company is like they're just being an they've already they've already decided. No, right. They're just kind of trying to justify that. So there were a handful of people who handful of people we talked to who just completely laughed us out of out of the room or were just jerks, like really, I don't know the some some some some people in the VC community are not nice. Most of them are very very friendly though. I think most of the people we talked to where we're at least extremely professional. The biggest thing I got was you know, there were some like there's some folks just kind of don't. Get how to make open source of business. And they think like how do you build a business around open source is a single problem? And in reality, that's like saying, how do you build a business around software like, well, there's, you know, eight thousand different ways and any of them can feel can fail or succeed in a million possible outcome, so like there is really no one way to make a business in open source. And so occasionally there'd be investors who we talked to because they'd invested in a handful of other like, quote, unquote, open source companies. But when we talked to them they'd be like, well, you don't have the node contributors on your team. So how can this ever succeed? It's like, well, I have the entire PM contributor based on my team because that's me pretty much, and this isn't just for node. And why would I need that? You know? But it's sort of a people get people get assumptions in their head. And then they, and you know, probably that Ristic served that investor pretty well. You know, if you try to go and create a start up around node, and you didn't have the backing of the node core Dev team like you'd have a really hard time. Right. You're you're coming in sort of as an outsider to this open source community in the case of mpm. That's just not the shape of the situation..

"Now, all of this from my perspective as the consumer is I want to be happy and enjoy myself, and then from the point of view of the game maker, they want their people to be happy. But they also want them to remain players. They want him to be to be satisfied. And I was reading your your thesis. In a saw word. I did not recognize called satisfying. Right. Would is that that that's an awesome word. I know it's a portmanteau of something would satisfy saying it's a sort of like a made up world worked like a proposed by Herbert Simon who actually won't noble prize in economics back in nineteen eighty s or something, and it's a sort of like a merge of two different words satisfied, plus suffice. So people are like in a real world like it's actually really really difficult to make an optimal decision. And I'm not even sure if they're such thing as optimal decision, given the sort of like, unknown uncertainties and probabilities of the information, so it's sort of like a word that used to describe how people make decisions based on your Ristic. So people tend to make decisions that's kind of good enough or so five to satisfy their their dress. Hold. Okay. So they're not necessarily making optimal. But decis. But they are making reasonable decisions that meet a certain bar or level of quality based as decisions. Yes. And that's that's what enables sort of like a quick decision. You know, like if you go to walk into grocery store, and you're trying to pick up a peanut butter. There are so many different peanut butter brands, and you know, like there are push them differently. Their labels are different. And how do you know, whether you actually pick the often peanut butter for yourself. Oh, okay. So I'm applying this two games. I know that very often I'll be running through a dungeon. And they'll get a new sword or a new shield, and I'll go I don't have enough information to decide if this is the right one or the best one I just want the best one. And then I I'm forced to make some what I feel is suboptimal decision. And then I have to run forward with you know, some sort of paper. I'm not sure if it's the right one. Yeah. But interesting thing is like humans are actually extremely good at making this type of heuristic decisions that are close to optimal, which is kind of the prising interesting. So. How is this different from making a decision based on your gut? It's fair similar right yet. Actually, so people often describe it just as a gut decision making as well..

"Can you share your thoughts on a help people incorporate new information from a business perspective? Rubasinghe perspective shore. And when thing to say about that is the base basis theorem. Beijing process. It's more of Ristic. I mean, I'm sure you know that social scientists, psychologists in particular, have documented myriad ways in which people's information processing diverts from Beijing. But if you start with Beijing model, then you can pretty much understand just about any one of the defects in people's ordinary reasoning. If you compare how it doesn't fit with Beijing. I'm so forbe's here. I would just use the most basic understanding that when people get new information, they update their existing beliefs in proportion to how much more consistent. The new information is with one potential belief versus another right? How much more consistent it is. That's the likelihood ratio amazes right one one rendering basis is that prior odds times the like ratio equals the posterior odds in our where we focus on how people's group commitments generate conflicts among them over. The likelihood ratio or how much weight to give to the evidence. So people might see one in the Saint piece of evidence on, but give it different weight depending on what they think the outcome is that evidence supports, but this doesn't just affect science. We've done studies where people sense impressions will participate in this kind of pattern by to tell people that have the subjects that protests is at an abortion clinic in that the protesters are disagreeing with Roe v Wade and the other half of the protesters at a military recruitment center by people who don't approve of the former policy that excluded openly gay and lesbian people from the military and people with different values will disagree about whether some of the protesters are blocking into a building or hitting people with their signs and so forth. It all depends on what we tell them. The protest is about in how that corresponds with their values. You really see this line of motivated drive in how people process information when it comes to science, it's the same thing. People are. Looking at the cues that normally tell them what science knows and they're construing it knits by fashion. Make sense. It makes sense also helps us to see that. Although this dynamic affect science in a really profound way and threatens to prevent enlightened self government, it's not just a, it's not a process that rises in our assessment of science per se on this kind of dynamic happen in any kind of setting where people relying on actual information. Tell me more about that to me. I mean, facts and science. They might be technically different, but I think of them as both sources of truth. In what way do they differ? Well, that the example of the study I just gave you call. They saw protests the people weren't disagreeing about facts, but science will have much to say about whether a protest your block, somebody going into a building, people just form different impressions of what they were interpreting seeing on film. Those same groups are the ones that are disagreeing about climate change. I'm a what science says about the safety of nuclear power of west science. About the episode of HP vaccine. If you see that in fact, this process isn't unique to science. You're in a better position. I think to remedy if people even outside of the mains of science or disagreeing about facts, including the Wednesday taken with their own sense, impression, that's unlikely that the solution to the problem is to change, how do science or how it communicates Heinz.

"So even if you thought that even if you found out that there was not predictive nece on these things, I think it's it's just super useful habit in practice to that. You know, I wish was way less friction in general because you know, I've injured, you always kind of lie to yourself afterwards of what you actually think anything of how you actually talked about beforehand. And so in general, I think that there is a lot of value to be had in kind of having the accountability of of actually making predictions in being able to to go back and see. And I've always thought that like that in general is a thing that would be great, just general cultural norm among. Of people they all just actually made projections. Right. And then in back in actually looked at what those were in kind of repack of their decision making off of that, that of course, doesn't actually require prediction markets. Prediction markets are more about how do you scale that up and absent make it possible for for that to the way more kind of verifiable massively distributed. But I think that that, you know, perdition markets are super interesting because markets in everything is probably trends that for for a bunch of areas we actually probably crudity constrained, we don't realize. And so I think that, you know, I don't expect them to immediately take off because I think that it's actually very difficult to identify areas and industries that specifically have captured Ristic's where having prediction markets would would unblock them. I actually don't think that is necessarily every market. That that that launch a take work of t of very focused civic teams to figure out what are the areas where having something that allows you to bring increase liquidity are have kind of third parties is kind of ascertain what is actually the or it's important that you have third parties, ascertain what is what is actually the Christ. Our state of it is, is that is something that is absent pretty difficult to to find a for the same reason that you know, you know everyone trying to start Uber for x. companies kind of miss that e dynamics of those industries weren't the same as Uber, right, or ridesharing where you kind of had this dynamic where it was liquidity constraints because there was actually a specialized knowledge required to be driver and and it was really in Google maps in in ways that that unlocked unlawful the quantity on that. And the question is, what are those areas of all level where prediction markets. Unlock the liquidity on it. I think it's a challenge, but I think that you know the idea that we have hit the limits of all things that should have markets on them is probably crazy. Reich has be some few today in a world, talk markets and everything. Where would you worry in terms of market failures or something? I think that we need solve market failures which is more market in others thing. No, actually in something inherently. Yep, yeah. And, yeah, I mean, I think that you know the more you quit buckets or more specifically, I guess, or more generally, I guess I'd saved the more you centralize things. It introduces a different class of respect. There's and I think you know, we are currently seeing this, you know, not just in our financial markets. We're also seeing this in in our SAFA pathogens.

"So we, we have Ristic's and we have you know, ways to to to to define certain thresholds for these mystics and but we. But you know, if you know basically Ristic's, we'd, we'd have to serve serve, decide that you know that no is down in, you know, then then we have the two different algorithms in order to how to how to resolve resolve that can be. We are basing it on. I, I have to say, you know that the problem might in most cases is is a problem of obsolete break. You know that you actually have to is actually only inequity disconnect, you don't know, but it might be that on the Neckar disconnects splitting up cluster into two different half's and then have another problem. You know that in which which is which serve side of the data center, you know, should you? Should you let let keep running, you know? And because if you if you like own sort of spin up actress on both sides, you know, thinking that the other half is down, then you run into the problem that you have, you know, and you can run into the data consistent. So you need some sort of intelligence here to to do a good good. Take a good good decision. Like one of the half of the Coster then he's as I, I'm, I'm out, you know, and the other half long or vice versa. There are different. Alleyways we have. We don't need to go into specifics, right, but but but they're all based on on on on on your needs. For the use case. You know, one example might be that there is a critical actor that you actually the need for the function to be alonside, you know, and then a force that systems even to actress there or to knows there in two hundred on the other one story is released released, really bad luck. Lexi implementer where to where the majority of knows like wins while this weather smaller Fuster has to have to reboot or or hold, you know. So so. So this is really hard our problem. But but but but you know, once you detected that it's really it's really about servicer resuming the actor's own the healthy notes, you know, and re-partitioning the cluster is to have a balanced to sort of allocation of actors on on the nose are still running and and as a also gossip around the Nevada information. So all the actor Fs in the cost of meaningful pionts can start using the actress on their on the new locations and from the from the user of these actors, they should never find out departure. Latency of force takes for these this whole process to to have. It seems like. To sort of program at a defensive way. It seems really important to like segment the data you're receiving from each actors. Like for example, a degenerate example is where you spin up a bunch of actors and they, let's say they send the messages to you and your job is to just concatenation all of these messages or accumulate all of these messages, right? Maybe they're sending back numbers and yours adding them up, and so you've added up, you're up to one thousand twenty seven, and then an actor dies. Well, now you're kind of because you don't necessarily know the controversy. You can't separate the contribution of that actor from the other ones. And so even if unless that one happens to unless you have some way of restarting actor at exactly the right spot, you kind of. Death needs to sort of cascade upwards because you're inconsistent. Right? So it seems like people have to program in a way where they're keeping track of who said, what, and that way, they don't end up in the situation where they can't recover the way the way it's usually oldest about using events logging. Then then the actor doesn't need himself to to keep track of that, but book to book in whatever made it to the to the actor over or more whatever the actress actually done..

However, it's difficult to increase the range on an electric motorcycle to achieve that you need a bigger battery capable of storing, more energy, bigger battery means bigger frame and easy equation that results in a bulky, electric power train. At this point you might as well throw in a few. Hugh more wheels for balance, steering wheel for good measure and call it now. I don't know a car, a group of engineering students from the university of Zurich in Switzerland has actually managed to produce a one off. Motorcycle with a staggering electric range of two hundred and fifty miles. In addition to the range, the bike has a built in quick charge system that can top off its battery in about an hour. The prototype was designed for a school project that challenged the fourteen students to experience all the steps of product development. The result is the all electric ethic. The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which.

For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport.

Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi.

WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor. This could be a godsend in February the retailer acquired spatial land a startup that makes software tools to create virtual reality experiences. Spatial land is housed inside walmarts in house tech incubator store number eight, which last year hosted a v. commerce gala in Los Angeles, Agadi affair by WalMart standards that celebrated the five Witters of WalMart competitions to find the best ideas in the space. WalMart is moving aggressively into the digital realm at the same time that Amazon and other technology. He companies are looking to establish a brick and mortar presence. Amazon acquired whole foods market last year and is also opening cashier 'less stores. While Google is planning a retail flagship store in Chicago. WalMart has filed more than a dozen virtual reality patents. But it's focus has shifted from using VR for internal business, say virtual conference calls to more external shopper focused applications. You used any of the portable bluetooth speakers on the market? A have gone through several over the years myself, but they all left me fairly unimpressed with both be sound and their battery life. I've had all portable bluetooth speakers in the same category. It's a great way to share your music on the go, but they're only slightly better than the mono speaker phone on most smartphones. Now I'm revising that thought in recommending the j. b. l. flip Ford. Not only does this compact portable bluetooth speakers sound also, but it has a rock in battery life that seems to keep getting better with testing on top of that. It's completely waterproof and I don't mean water resistant. No, I'm talking dunk. Your head underwater, sit there with a snorkel and submerge your speaker to enjoy all your favorite music is heard by dolphins waterproof. This thing is absolutely incr-. Credible. I was a radio engineer for several years and win. I needed speakers. I always turn to JBL. Their sound is always exceptional with base. You can feel even in their smallest monitor speakers for studios. The flip four holds true to the JBL sound even with its microscopic size. It's smaller than your insulated coffee mug, but weighs in at one point, one pounds. It has a three thousand middle amp hour battery that JBL says, can last for twelve hours. Now intesting I was able to use it for thirteen to fifteen hours depending on how loud it was. And the performance seemed to get a little better. Each time I recharge the device with the first test going just twelve and a half hours thirteen on the second and fifteen on the third. Now, it's very hard to test a speaker at full volume with for twelve hours, especially when you're married and have the kid. But I would. -magine if you did play the flip four at full volume that it would actually last, it's twelve hours specified. world. world.

"Podcast is brought to you by knowledge award. Performance in the workplace is something that every company is focusing on even more right now. And while companies are focusing on it, it is the individual ploy that ends up being responsible for it in most cases and looking for those ways to improve it. But a new book suggests that the key to better performance may be focusing on the things that you do well and not so much worrying about the rest. Eight steps to high performance is the name of the book. It's written by Mark fron and he joins us right now. Mark welcome. Good morning, Dan, how are you? I'm doing very well. Thank you very much. A part of this would seem to lay out the expectations that both the employer, but also the employees should affect and Dan, you make a great point. The individual impli at the end of the day is responsible for their own performance. And while we certainly hope our companies are going to help, hopefully you don't outsource your performance to your employer, but a good bit of people's performance. You met. Mentioned is kind of predictable or predicted in a variety of factors which it seems like are not necessarily linked to the actual work that they do. Two things to think about. If you wanna be a higher performer into your point. One is there are a lot of individual shirt Ristic's that we have our intelligence parts of our personality, things that are upbringing background that we really just can't change. They do either contribute to or sometimes detract from performance, and that's about fifty percents of what influences how successful we are at work. But the other fifty percent is completely controllable by us. And that's why lay out in the book is what is the hard core academic science say is conclusively linked to hire individuals performance at work? So the answer to that question is, well there things in the few things matter more than other all. I won't hit all the eight steps right now. I'm sure we'll get to that. But if you. The only had say, two things that you could do Mark, my busy guy can't do all eight steps which to should. I start with the number one. Most powerful factor is setting fewer bigger goals. The science around that is unbelievably strong. It sounds so obvious most of set goals at work. But what the science would say is most of us don't stretch those goals anywhere near as much as we could. So there's a ton of great signs that says that we respond to bigger goals with more effort, meaning most of the time bigger goals going to deliver a bigger result. But if we have ten big goals, we're going to kill ourselves..
