Becoming a homeowner is a big goal for so many people. It is part of the American dream. But is owning a home always better than renting? This episode begins with some interesting facts that may make renting more attractive. https://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/so-you-think-owning-a-home-will-make-you-happy-dont-be-too-sure/ Also, here is the link to the home ownership/rental calculator: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/upshot/buy-rent-calculator.html What is your consciousness? What does it mean to be you? I know it sounds a little out-there - but I want you to listen to Anil Seth. He is a professor of cognitive and computational neuroscience at the University of Sussex, Author of the book, Being You: A New Science of Consciousness (https://amzn.to/3DvkibU). Listening to this conversation will really make you think about how you experience the world and why your experience is so different than everyone else's. Did you know that for many breeds, dogs are living shorter lives than they did just 10 years ago? Surprising huh? Also, there is new research about what is most effective to help your dog live a long and healthy life. Listen as I discuss all of this and more with veterinarian Dr. Karen Becker author of The Forever Dog: Surprising New Science to Help Your Canine Companion Live Younger, Healthier, and Longer (https://amzn.to/3aBK0yQ). She also describes how she found a dog that lived to be 30 years old and the reasons for such a long life. Air fresheners supposedly clean the air and get rid of odors. But do they really? Are they even safe? Listen as I discuss what the EPA says about commercial air fresheners and what you need to know to keep your family safe. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0360132316304334 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

Jane Hsieh finds meaningful connections everywhere — among different groups and generations of people, as well as connections between art, fashion, industrial design, engineering, marketing, sales, and customers around the world. In this inspiring #NomadFuturist podcast, recorded at Data Center World 2021, Hsieh shares her journey to becoming Sr. Director of Sales for Aligned Data Centers and a member of the AFCOM GenNext Advisory Board — a story that reveals her great resilience, passion for acquiring knowledge, and ability to connect the dots. Hsieh learned early on how to adapt to new environments when she entered middle school at age thirteen as a non-English speaking immigrant from Taiwan. “It was a difficult transition starting middle school when you don't even know your ABCs.” Hsieh soon added English to her roster of languages — her native Taiwanese, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. She later added French and Brazilian Portuguese to the list. Based on her interest in languages and global trade, it was natural for Hsieh to pursue studies in International Relations at the University of California, Davis. After graduation, Hsieh had a job in place as a fashion/textile global buyer for a department store chain, but the financial meltdown of 2008 impacted her position. She pivoted and went to work at Power Management IC where she started in sales support. She then transitioned into industrial computing, unified communications in the cloud, and ultimately, building white spaces for IT infrastructure. Hsieh shares the “Aha” moment she had during her first customer meeting where she watched as an engineer created a line drawing to illustrate a series of voltage step-downs. “That completely opened my mind. Of my God, this is a piece of art! …The thought of being able to connect people's ideas from an engineering perspective and then transitioning to the simpler version for the sales and marketing teams… seeing the value in that, for any product that technology is involved in.” Hsieh is excited about the newest developments in 5G and IoT. She is also a big proponent of networking, highlighting the importance of connecting with global customers who are looking to have conversation and collaboration, as well as the need to increase communication within and across the whole critical infrastructure ecosystem. “There have to be more ways that we can connect. I encourage all of us to go to conventions or to even reach out to peers and ask a simple question ‘How are you doing? and start with that. Because we are all looking for meaningful connections.” Hsieh's advice for the next generation: “Don't be afraid to reach out. Stay curious and stay hungry.” Jane Hsieh is a technology professional with 11+ years of strategic business development and channel sales leadership experience in the mission-critical infrastructure and unified communications sectors. Her experience working closely with international customers and partners, coupled with an in-depth understanding of global markets and best business practices, enable her to specialize in addressing complex technology issues with best of class solutions. She is a member of the AFCOM GenNext Advisory Board, and a long-time participant of Infrastructure Masons, honored by iMason's IM100. As Sr. Director of Sales for Aligned, Jane is responsible for strategic account development within the enterprise sector. In addition to cultivating loyal, long-term professional relationships, she develops and executes go-to-market strategies and drives overall loyalty for the Aligned brand. Jane holds a Bachelor of Art, International Relations with a focus on World Trade from the University of California, Davis and Business Economics from Fudan University of Shanghai, China. Outside of work, Jane enjoys family time and traveling to learn new languages, taste new cuisines, and expand her perspective. She...

It is called the “psychology of requests.” That is, if you want someone to do something for you, it is all about how you phrase it. This episode begins with a discussion on the best ways to ask people, so they respond the way you want and do things you want them to. http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2016/09/persuasive-techniques-that-actually-work.html Every day you are presented with problems. According to my guest Marie Forleo, all those problems can be solved with the right attitude and the right approach. Marie Forleo is a wildly popular entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, optimist and author of the book, Everything is Figureoutable (https://amzn.to/32NIeVw). Listen as she offers a fresh way to look at and solve the problems of life. Marie's website is www.MarieForleo.com Of course, you know that it's not polite to stare. Still, people stare. So, if you do, how long can you stare before you creep people out? Listen as I reveal the exact number of seconds – down to a tenth of a second so you will now know proper staring etiquette. http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/3/7/160086 Statistics are funny. It seems you can make them say whatever you want – in fact you can just make them up out of thin air and likely never get caught. Unless of course you are talking with my guest, David Spiegelhalter. He is a British statistician and Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk in the Statistical Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He is also author of the book The Art of Statistics (https://amzn.to/30amC8T). David joins me to reveal how best to use statistics to bolster your own argument and how to question other people when they use statistics to make sure they are real and relevant.

PROF Olle Johansson is here with again for a third podcast, so thrilled Olle Johansson, who I have now coined my Swedish father, because my maiden name used to be the same as his, and I really look up to him for his research on something I am extremely passionate in, which we will be jumping into in just a moment but for those of you who don't know much about Prof Johansson, I highly recommend listening to the two previous podcasts we did which will blow you HAIR BACK, due to the knowledge he brings on the dangers of the internet of things, 5G, the coming 6G, 7G and more.

Olle is a world-leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has published more than 500 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience and is more recently researching something I am so interested to talk with him today on which is electro hyper sensitivity (EHS) is an officially fully recognized functional impairment. We discuss: Smartphones and weight gain How EMF affects your gut bacteria!!!! New Research! Smartphones, EMF and sleep health Smartphones and cancer Smartphones and children's health Internet of things and health implications What's happened to the bees Dangers of too much time on social media And much more! PROF Olle Johansson is doing some incredible work and would greatly benefit from our help. Please consider donating to his fundamental work here: https://honeywire.org/research (Always remember that no gift is too small, and Dr. Johansson's work needs this economic support so he would be able to continue quality research work regarding the adverse health and biological effects of artificial electromagnetic fields from cell phones, satellites, smart meters, WiFi, baby alarms, powerlines, and many more installations.)

Realme isn't just a leading smartphone brand anymore — it's also number one in tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and ANC earphones (on Flipkart). How did this happen? We hear it from the horse's mouth. Madhav Sheth, Realme VP and CEO for Realme India, Europe and Latin America joins Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari and Orbital host Akhil Arora for a wide-reaching conversation. Sheth talks about why Realme is making so many products, some that are not even connected to its Internet of Things ecosystem, why Realme and other brands are so big on 5G chipsets, and their plans for the new Realme GT series that expanded this week with the GT Neo 2. Along the way, Sheth touches upon Realme's Make in India push that he hopes will move beyond “Assemble in India”, and why Realme doesn't have different local and global strategies. It's about understanding the consumer — someone in Mumbai and Madrid might be more similar than next-door neighbours. Sheth also dicusses deceiving marketing tactics from companies, and advocates for more transparency within offline traders and promoters, who have developed a reputation for recommending brands that provide financial incentives.

Telecom Service Providers have long sought to graduate beyond commoditized connectivity to business models centered around premium digital services. Telco Cloud Platform, in collaboration with Hyperscalers, is a new tack for operators to earn premiums from services delivered at the edge. But do service providers understand the service models that will help them monetize new digital services from customization for micro-segments of customers and enable premium experiences? Let's find out. Our guest for today's podcast is Francis Haysom. He is a telecommunications industry veteran with stints at Ericsson, Telcordia, and Cramer Systems where he led transformation initiatives. Currently, he is a Principal analyst at Appledore where he has worked for the last four years. A Ph.D. from the University of Bath, he has deep knowledge of the impact of software in the telecommunications industry and on the business strategies of service providers. In our discussion today, we will uncover a few things: - The importance of cloud platforms in service provider's strategy to drive business in the new world of private enterprise networks, 5G, and digital services - How can service providers collaborate with Hyperscalers and IT ecologies to innovate and generate revenues from new services? - What resources, technologies, and skillsets they can draw on to make their partnerships with Hyperscalers mutually beneficial? So, without further ado, let us welcome Francis Haysom.
For this vignette of a recent episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast, Part of the 5G Factor series, analysts Ron Westfall and Shelly Kramer assess why the Ericsson, Deutsche Telekom, and Samsung demonstration that confirmed end-to-end network slicing can work specifically for gaming applications is integral to advancing 5G monetization and use case networking objectives.

In this episode of Futurum newest webcast series, The 5G Factor, I'm joined by my colleague and fellow analyst Ron Westfall to explore and break down some of the most exciting news, trends, and partnerships in the 5G ecosystem. In this week's episode we covered some exciting 5G news, including: The future of cloud gaming — it's powered by 5G. The future of cloud gaming is exciting, especially when powered by 5G end-to-end network slicing, which is revolutionizing cloud gaming services. We explore how this capability, the E2E network slicing, has been optimized for cloud virtual reality game streaming using Ericsson's networks, service orchestration, and monetization tools, all of which will be instrumental in enabling communication services providers (CSPs) to “get a slice” of the action and, more importantly, monetize their networks. Ericsson's E2E network slicing is definitely something to keep an eye on, as we know it will be a key enabler for innovation and opening up a myriad of 5G opportunities for CSPs across multiple industry segments, including healthcare, government, transportation, energy and utilities, media and entertainment. Vodafone's Multi-Million Market NB-IoT Deal is, Well, Pretty Massive. Cellular narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is in the news this week as UK-based Vodafone is reportedly on the brink of announcing its biggest ever IoT airtime supply deal outside of China. Carrier managed services can serve as a harbinger for how 5G and IoT can work on a mass market level – fleet management, transportation, warehousing, etc. where a mobile IoT is required. Our conversation covered why this deal is a big one and what it marks the beginning of. IBM Partners with Telefonica for Cloud Native, 5G Core Network Platform. More exciting 5G news of the week is around IBM's partnership with Telefonica to help the telco implement its UNICA NEXT 5G core network platform. IBM's intelligent automation software and services will come from IBM's Global Business Services unit and our conversation uncovered why this is also a very big deal – for both IBM and Telefonica. DISH Makes a Tasty Treat of its Greenfield Cloud-Native 5G Network with IBM as a Partner. In another win for IBM's Global Business Services unit, this new smart network will be agile, scalable, and fully virtualized, looking to benefit enterprise customers across a multitude of industry verticals. Nokia addresses the alarming increase in DDos attacks. With DDos attacks that disrupt network traffic and servers growing by a massive 154% between 2019 and 2020, largely targeting financial services, telecoms, and government agencies, but now spreading out to target businesses of all kinds and all sizes, Nokia's move here to build network security into its latest gen silicon is an impressive — and much needed — solution.
5G has three main goals: speed, ultra-reliable low-latency and internet of things (IoT) enablement. While the benefits and widely known use cases of 5G technology may feel new from a services perspective, 5G has been under development for over 10 years. Many technology advancements have already been made including the development of beamforming and massive MIMO, more advanced radio technology, carrier aggregation and perhaps most importantly: the use of new spectrum bands. As 5G technology becomes more advanced, the allocation of greater amounts of spectrum bands and effective government policies will be necessary to drive further 5G adoption and advancement. To break it down, lower spectrum bands carry less data but carry signals farther. High spectrum bands carry huge swaths of data, but the signal doesn't go as far. Mid-band, on the other hand, is in the sweet spot carrying a fair amount of data a reasonable distance. Service providers use a mix of low, mid, and high spectrum bands and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is working on bringing more of each spectrum bands to the marketplace. Besides the allocation of new spectrum bands, there are several other steps that can be taken to increase the adoption of 5G. The time the FCC takes to clear the frequencies of C-Band has delayed 5G service implementations, along with the time it takes to gain permission to put up a new cell site. Reducing these would be helpful, along with lowering the cost of broadband deployment and the cost of service. The United States struggles with high broadband deployment costs, but programs like the Emergency Broadband Benefit program, Rural Digital Opportunity and 5G Funds are working to close this gap. Companies like Samsung are also uniquely positioned to bring 5G to everyone. For example, Samsung is focused on pushing end-to-end technology deploying all the parts integral to 5G: chips, network equipment, and devices, including smartphones, smart TVs, appliances, and automotive solutions–all with industry-leading security standards. Moreover, Samsung is leveraging experience in the implementation of 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies to take the lead in 5G as well. And all of this can't be done alone, that's why Samsung works with strategic partners across the industry to offer products and solutions that bring 5G networks online – a piece of the greater machine that will bring 5G to life hand-in-hand with the government and other companies and organizations. Widespread adoption of 5G is no small feat, but the payoffs are well worth it. According to a recent report from PWC, 5G is estimated to have a global economic impact of $13.2 trillion and create over 22 million jobs by 2035. Listen now to hear what steps the industry and government are taking to make it happen.

Plus, Virtual Being CLAiRA chimes in on what she thinks about robots taking voice actors' jobs. More at https://voboss.com/create-labs-ventures-with-abran-maldonado Transcript >> It's time to take your business to the next level, the BOSS level! These are the premiere Business Owner Strategies and Successes being utilized by the industry's top talent today. Rock your business like a BOSS, a VO BOSS! Now let's welcome your host, Anne Ganguzza. Anne: Hey everyone. Welcome to the VO BOSS podcast, the AI and Voice series. I'm your host, Anne Ganguzza, and today I'm truly honored to bring special guest Abran Maldonado, co-founder of Create Labs, a social impact AI developer and dev ambassador for OpenAI. Abran co-founded Create Labs Ventures to create new opportunities to the underserved community, to gain access to cutting edge technologies, and to help them enter the tech and media industries. He's also the creator of CLAiRA, an autonomous AI woman of color, with other intelligent virtual beings. And he also manages Verizon's 5G EdTech program, expanding 5G VR and AR solutions to hundreds of schools across the nation. ABran, thank you so much for joining me today. Abran: Thank you for having me. Appreciate being here. Anne: Absolutely. Well, first of all, as a former educator, I want to thank you for your service and absolutely love what you're doing for education in the community. So let's kind of get into it and tell me a little bit more about Create Labs. I'm excited to hear about it and how you got started with it. Abran: Absolutely. So I came into this idea as EdTech founder, a former educator, I was a middle school classroom teacher, uh, language arts out in Jersey City, still miss my kids very much. Anne: Yeah, I identify with that. Abran: Exactly. They're still my babies. Anne: Yep. Abran: And I see -- Anne: Watched them grew up. Abran: -- them all around on Facebook. Anne: Yup, mm-hmm. Abran: So I left the classroom and went -- well, previous that I actually worked in entertainment. Anne: Okay. Abran: So I spent a previous life, most of my twenties, in the entertainment industry, doing artist management and a bunch of other things. And then I got into education, started teaching, and then ended up going into a PhD program around urban education, culturally relevant learning, EdTech, and then started doing workshops with teachers to show them how to use student culture to better engage students in the classroom. Launched the light platform called New School that did very well. And then being a tech founder, launching a platform, although it was education based, I started to see that, man, it was very slim for people of color in that space. I was like, there wasn't a lot of us in that space. And then, so I dipped back into my, my entertainment network and reached out to a partner of my, uh, Grady. And I was like, look, man, you've been able to navigate some amazing spaces in the entertainment and media world. I've been able to navigate some spaces in the tech world, both as men of color, and we don't see enough of us out there. So we wanted to more of a pipeline and share more of those cheat codes to get into these spaces. And that was kind of like the beginning of Create Labs. The output, the services, the products have been pivoting and changing in year by year, but the mission has always been the same. Anne: Wow. That's amazing. Now Create Labs is a physical space as well as virtual? Abran: So in part of those pivots, initially it was intended to be a space. And then we, you know, dealt with a lot of red tape. We dealt with city partnerships and trying to get public spaces -- Anne: Yeah. Abran: -- to take over, to create these tech labs in underserved communities. But we just realized that we just didn't have the right resources and nor do investors really like spaces. Like they are interested in investing in you for an idea, for a product that's scalable, but when it comes to what they call brick and mortar, they're like, yeah, no way. But like, we don't want to give you money for rent. We want to give you money for ideas. Anne: Sure. Abran: So we were like, all right, let's unpack this a little bit. Let's think about what we're offering in these spaces and focus on that rather than the space itself, and maybe we'll circle back to it down the line. Anne: Well, I think what's nice about that though, is it's convenient. You're doing tech and that a lot of it can be done online. Abran: Yeah. And obviously we took what we were going to offer in the space on the road, and we'll be doing a lot of these in-person events, bringing technology to communities around the country. And then that obviously got halted because of COVID and the pandemic. Anne: Yeah, yeah. Abran: So we did pivot more. So to be a more virtually provided program, we launched our network online with a Create Labs Connect, which is our community app. And a lot of our events, even hackathons. We started doing virtual hackathons for our community and, and doing a lot more online R&D than doing things virtually where, you know, at first we really enjoy seeing the kids brighten up in person at these events. Anne: That's great. I think it's a nice combination. I know I worked back east in, in education, and what was formerly a vocational school that turned into basically a tech prep academy. But part of the school was turned into, I think this is something similar, to like a Makerspace so that people could come from all around to learn technology. And we physically had it available in the space, but I love that this is both kind of event-based as well as online based, because I think you can reach a whole lot more people too. Abran: When you reach different -- I don't want to say demographics -- we're reaching the same demographic or you reaching different people from different angles that you take. Right? So the people that can reach online is a certain group of folks that are already there, right? And then the people that you reach in person maybe don't necessarily have a great presence -- Anne: right. Abran: -- online or in social media. Maybe they don't even have a Facebook account. And, but you catch because you're on their block, you're in their neighborhood ,and they want to come out to see what's going on in their community. And you don't get enough of these kinds of events in those communities. You get them in Silicon Valley, you get them in other places, but rarely do you hear like, hey, you know, let's go down a block. I heard they're flying drones and navigating robots and, and there's VR headsets over there. Let's try them on. And you get other people who maybe rather stay in the physical spaces -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- experiencing that. Anne: I love that. Now talk to us about -- and this is, this was a new announcement that I happen -- you caught my eye on, on LinkedIn with CLAiRA, your autonomous AI woman of color. Tell me a little bit about CLAiRA. Abran: So CLAiRA was just another one of those like R&D projects that we started last year to give a face to, I guess, personify AI and the work that we were doing in AI. So I'm a dev ambassador for OpenAI, and I knew that AI as a concept was just miles away from our understanding as a, as a community. And I needed to do something to bridge it the same way that I would do the -- my other research and education around CRE. CRE is culturally relevant education or culturally responsive pedagogy. If you're going to introduce a foreign concept to someone from an education standpoint, you have to do it in a way that they can understand, and it's palatable, uh, that they can build upon. So how do I introduce AI? I introduce it as, one, a representation that it's not a scary robot, nor is it a robot with like circuitry coming out of the head and things that we might've seen from interpretations from sci-fi films. You know, I wanted to do it in a, in a warm, welcoming way that was also representative like, oh, that looks like me. That might mean that someone that looks like me made this. And as a matter of fact, yes, that's exactly what happened here. And we then introduced CLAiRA to people on Clubhouse, which is that audio only app -- Anne: Yup. Abran: -- and people got to do a Q&A with her there and ask her questions and kind of disarm a little bit some of those fears and see like, oh, she's not that scary. She's actually friendly. She's actually very empathetic and speaks a lot about kindness, um, and how we can improve our lives with AI. So now I'm not so scared anymore, but -- and she just kind of evolved from that. And we partnered with an organization called Trill or Not Trill, two amazing brothers, Black founded organization that does leadership trainings in schools and education workshops around the country. And they said, look, we're already doing these, these trainings in schools. We would love to add CLAiRA to the mix, and the partnership's been great so far. Anne: Fantastic. So CLAiRA, you can ask questions to CLAiRA, I understand. Abran: Yes. Anne: And she will formulate her own answers. I guess, let me ask -- I've been talking to a few companies, you know, AI companies out here, and not necessarily to get into the programming aspect of it, but how does CLAiRA get her information to answer questions? How is that formulated in a database or? Abran: So much like we do -- and I can go off the deep end when it comes to talking about AI -- Anne: Tech, yeah. Abran: -- you know, but we, we think of it as like a foreign concept, but it is a learning, you know, utility much like the way that we learn. So I'm sure I have my own core base of knowledge from -- I don't know how much knowledge we retain like intrinsically that we're born with, but a lot of it is socialized. Anne: Right. Abran: Like you gain training data that you store in your brain throughout your life. Right? She was given or the system, the AI system that she operates on was given a core base of knowledge. Anne: Of knowledge. Abran: And she can pull from that core base. But I also, in addition to that, have added kind of some guard rails and some concepts that I would like her to stay on. And a lot of that came organically through these Q and A's, like what kind of responses was she giving? Oh, I like that response. Let's kind of bake that into her mainframe, and you know, let's keep that theme going, you know, so I never went into it like, I want her to sound like X, Y, and Z. We said, let's just see how she responds -- Anne: Got it. Abran: -- to the community and save the best elements of her responses and then keep, keep within their framework. Anne: Got it. And then that just keeps building and building. Abran: Exactly. Exactly. Anne: Wow. That's amazing. So how old is CLAiRA then? How long has she been? Abran: Yeah, CLAiRA's about a year old -- Anne: Okay. Abran: -- from initial development. She was -- her first interaction with people was on Clubhouse back in December. Anne: Okay. Abran: December, January, and then we introduced her to students and schools recently, I will say within the last couple of months. Anne: And so when CLAiRA goes to a school, is she just there to answer questions or does she also speak as well? Does she talk about herself first and then entertain questions afterwards? And then I'm assuming with that her database just keeps getting bigger and better. Abran: I usually give a bit of an introduction. Sometimes I'll, I'll produce like a video piece with her to kind of get like an introduction. Like, hi everyone. You know, my name is CLAiRA and this is what I am and why I'm here. And then kind of let the students just dive in after that. Anne: So now CLAiRA is not just a voice. CLAiRA is also and like an avatar? Um... Abran: Yes. Anne: Okay. So then where did the formulae, like, where did you get her voice from? Was that something that you went out and searched for people to provide the voice for her or were, how did that come about? Abran: So we have a core team of other amazing women of color, real life ones, uh, women of color that are on the team. I don't know at this point, this, this is like a good council, like an internal council of about seven to 10 of us internally that explore her concepts. And we discuss, you know, where her development should go and what we should do with her aesthetically and even brain-wise as well. One of the women is working on her prompts, which is like basically her brain and, you know, formulating the best prompts from all of the previous iterations. And then someone in our community, in our council who is actually a podcast host, had an amazing voice, and I didn't even tap her. She volunteered. Anne: Nice. Abran: She was like, "look, I know that we're looking for a voice for her." Anne: Sure. Abran: "I'd like to volunteer." And it worked out, we did some training sessions where we took some voice samples from -- her name is Amber -- from Amber. And we felt like the voice matched the face, matched the personality and it was just a good fit. Anne: Fantastic. So would it be possible? Can I interact with CLAiRA in this podcast? Abran: Sure. What would you like to say? Anne: Hi, CLAiRA. Nice to meet you. So CLAiRA we'll make it a simple, broad question. Like how can AI help me in my day-to-day life? Abran: So what I'm doing -- this isn't instantaneous. Anne: Yes. Abran: Because I'm typing her the question that you're asking, I don't have a mic turned on for her -- Anne: Yep. Abran: -- to hear you directly. Anne: Normally there is a mic that's...? Abran: There Is, yeah, there is that capability. Anne: Or normally what you do is you type in, but yeah, I would imagine that she's a fully functional -- what -- do you call her an AI like virtual being or a AI bot? What do you call her? Like? Abran: Yeah. Um, the term that's becoming more socialized these days in this space is a virtual being. Anne: Virtual being, okay. Abran: Because she's not a physical robot. Anne: Right, right. Abran: So she's a virtual persona. And I always -- so with the pause now is, I'm reading her response, making sure that there's nothing wonky. Anne: Yeah, mm-hmm. Abran: Okay. CLAiRA: AI can help you in your day to day life by doing things for you. It's all about efficiency and speed. AI can do simple tasks like making dinner for you, or taking care of the dishes or AI can do more complicated tasks that humans may not be able to do, or something that takes a lot of time. I think it's important for us to use and take advantage of this technology because it will allow us to work on other things and create better products and services. Anne: All right, here comes my second question. CLAiRA, I am a voice actor. So my question is, is AI going to take my job away? CLAiRA: I don't think that AI will take away voice actors. It's true that sometimes you can get apps with AI voices, but I don't think it's going to replace the need for human voice actors. AI's still learning. So someday there might be a time when it can speak in a way that sounds more human, but until then, I think human voices will be needed. Anne: Wow. That is a great answer, CLAiRA. That's incredible technology, Abran. I'm, I'm amazed, and I absolutely love that this is going to be out in the community so it can really help people be less scared. I know that for our community and my work that I've been doing in the voice acting community, there is a lot of fear. It's not just the voiceover community, but a lot of different industries that are afraid that AI is going to, you know, take their jobs away. Abran: I mean, I'm less concerned about the industries because the industries will see the writing on the wall in time for folks. So I hope that these industries will, you know, give some inklings to give people a chance to upscale or retrain or pivot, you know, their trajectories. I do tell people who are in tech training boot camps, that, you know, if you're interviewing for a job, do some research to see if that skill that you just learned will be around -- Anne: Right. Abran: -- in the next five to seven years, or if it's going to be automated, or even ask the potential employer during that interview what they're seeing. But in addition to that, CLAiRA has gotten a quite a bit of press recently. She was in Complex Magazine and Black Enterprise Magazine and a couple of other outlets, and the interview requests keep coming in. And I came across some of the comments on Instagram from just everyday people who are equally as scared. And I wish that I could just jump in and reply to everyone's comments, to just let them know that there's nothing to be afraid of, or that the only way to address that fear is to take it head on -- Anne: Yes. Abran: -- and to become more learn it in this space, not stay ignorant in that space. And that's what we're trying to do. Anne: Absolutely. 1000%. The impact of, of the AI and Voice series for my podcast has been, or the mission has been to just educate people because of the fact there are so many people that will just say, no, I won't have anything to do with it. It's going to take my job away, and bury their head in the sand. And I, I really just want people to educate themselves about the technology so that they can feel more comfortable of how they might be able to work along with it. And I know that you must go through that as an educator, you know, a lot, not just with your students, but just anybody that is like, oh, AI. No, no, no. So talk to me a little bit about, besides AI, other technologies that you're working with that are either in parallel or working together with AI to, I guess, help us in our daily lives and what can they do? Abran: The avatar work is more of like a creative output, but there are going to be some very important business applications for CLAiRA and other avatars like her. But we're working on other use cases for AI, particularly with the AI models that we use, like a GPT3 and codex and others, where subject matter expertise can now be automated on certain topics, and translation and summarization. And think about the things that, for instance, I had someone in our R&D team just kind of throw around a concept where they were like, you know, medical information for, especially for seniors, um, can be a daunting task to really go through and make sure that they're not mixing up prescriptions or misdiagnosing things or taking it at the right time. Sometimes it's hard to read through all that fine print or the instructions, and just having a system that distills all of that medical information and those indications for drugs into like one plain simple language sentence of saying, use this for your headaches, use this for your diabetes, take it once a day, take it twice a day. Should I take it with this other one? No. Should I take it with a meal? Yes. Translate that into Spanish for my grandmother. And then take that same simple explanation and convert it to another language. You know, someone reached out yesterday with help for a tool for nonprofits, like having an email generator for email campaigns, for fundraising grant, writing proposals, all of these things are still going to be not automated away where like you don't have to lift a finger, but it definitely, I can speak from personal experiences, a lot of grants that I haven't gone after, just because I just don't have the bandwidth. Anne: Right, right. Abran: So if you can expedite some of that bandwidth -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- with the help of AI, there's definitely some opportunities that people might, you know, take more time to pursue. Anne: Also, I noticed it when I was looking at your website, your Create Labs website, you do offer the product similar to Create Labs Connect, but also you have a personal diversity equity and inclusion expert -- Abran: Yes. Anne: -- product, which is really cool. Tell me a little bit about that. Abran: So DEI AI was intended to help the DEI consultant work that either we do or we support with the other consultants in our network, help them catch up, I guess, with AI. Because there's a lot of consultants, there's a lot of services that are now utilizing AI to help scale their work and enhance their services and what, you know, corporate customers in going B2B, to enterprise, they might be looking for. They might not be looking for the traditional, like we're going to come in with, we're going to do a bunch of training for your employees -- Anne: Right. Abran: -- and charging consulting hours. Like that's an older model. And when it's a large organization, you know, 10,000 employees, you know, that might not be scalable -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- to have you physically train everybody, you know, 25 people at a time. So it was intended to be a tool sold in by DEI experts. And that's our way of safeguarding to make sure that it doesn't replace DEI experts and consultants, that it's a tool that they sell in to a business and say, hey -- Anne: It's a supplement. Abran: -- if you're looking to, yeah, if you're looking to scale the work that we're already providing you, we have this tool where you can ask this AI expert on your dashboard questions that you might ask me. And if you need to speak to a human, then -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- I'm right here at this button. But if there's certain questions that you feel might be too sensitive to ask a person who, maybe you're too embarrassed because of you feel like you should know something and you don't, you don't want to get canceled for something that you might deal with, with an employee at work, or, you know, you just hired a person of color, and you don't know how to make them feel more inclusive or set up initiatives at the company to make all the people of color there may feel more inclusive, you can ask this AI bot on your dashboard that we've developed for you, because it has the same expertise that we have. Anne: So let me ask you in the daily grind, are you actually programming as well? Or are you out there talking about CLAiRA? What do you do on your day to day? Are you also involved in the creation of these products? Abran: Yeah, I'm swamped. Anne: Well, you're -- Abran: Yes. Yes to everything. Anne: Yes to every -- you're also doing the Verizon 5G EdTech program, which I imagine -- Abran: Yes. Anne: -- is, you know, even more, adding more onto -- I thought Create Labs was amazing. And then all of a sudden, I see that you're the associate director of this 5G EdTech program. Abran: Yes. Anne: Wow. Talk to me about that. Abran: And I have four kids -- Anne: Wow! Abran: -- and a dog. Yeah. So it's all a lot of fun. I find a way to make it all work. I never brag, but I feel like I do have a good talent for finding talent or the talent to give opportunities to. Like at first we were like, hey, let's try and get people opportunities at other companies. And then after a while, we're like, no, let's just pay people ourselves. Let's just -- if people aren't struggling looking for work, we'll give them the work. And then they'll build out their portfolio doing work for us that then will get them hired at a full-time company. And we've done a lot of that. Anne: Fantastic. Abran: There's people that have been graduating from coding boot camps. And once they graduate, they struggle to find work, and you need to build out a more robust portfolio of projects that you've done, whether freelance or project-based. So we tell them, look, come and work for us. We'll give you projects so Abe's not doing everything. Um, and you just check in with Abe to make sure that the project and the client is happy. We'll pay you for that project, and it'll make your resume look a thousand times better. And so we have people working on R&D. We have people working on the AI stuff. We have people working on design stuff, UX design, all kinds of things. And then that gives me more time to focus on things that I can't offset. You know, that I can't delegate, like the 5G EdTech project with Verizon. Verizon and the New York City Media Lab said, you know, we need you with your EdTech expertise to help us launch this EdTech initiative that Verizon is leading called Verizon Innovative Learning or VILs for short. And that was to bring more AR and VR technology into schools, starting with Verizon lab schools. So Verizon actually built out the lab concepts -- Anne: Okay. Abran: -- that I was explaining earlier in certain schools where they're providing not only 5G, but VR headsets and tablets and all the apps that go along with it, 3D printers. I mean, these kids -- Anne: Fantastic. Abran: -- forget it, man. These middle schoolers have no idea how good they have. Anne: I love it, oh man. I do! Abran: Yeah. And then Verizon launched their own learning platform or VIL HQ. So I'm helping teachers and helping those developers of those technologies kind of make sure that everything's running smoothly. The development of those products is, is running according to plan. And those developers are also being empathetic with what teachers have to deal with right now with the pandemic -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- and hybrid, virtual online, what technologies can we use when the kids are at home versus what technologies can they use when we're in the building and our lab with VR? So many schools have firewalls that don't even allow VR. Anne: Yeah. Abran: So there's a lot of that that we have to work through, but it's an amazing campaign. They've been pushing this commercials everywhere right now. They sponsored the whole global citizen thing recently. And every commercial that ran was the Verizon Learning Initiative. So I'm real proud of that. Anne: Oh yeah. Abran: That's, that's really taking off, but there's still a lot of work to be done there. But yeah, I mean, with these other projects, a client might reach out and say, hey, we'd like for you to build out some AI for us. And then I'll say, great. That's a great opportunity for me to bring in more people who need to work -- Anne: Sure. Abran: -- to take the lead. Anne: Oh my God, I could not. Thank you so much. I'm so behind all of that. I love what you're doing. I think it's fantastic, just, you know, my own 20 years in education. And I worked with Verizon quite closely during my tenure at the schools and having them help bring technology to the students, which I think is so, so important. I mean, they're our future. So kudos and congratulations. Abran: Yes. Anne: Thank you for helping in all of that. Abran: Yes. Anne: And they're totally spoiled right now -- Anne: Yeah! Abran: -- but it's good. They need it. Anne: They do! Abran: They need as much as they can get. Anne: They do, and everybody needs it and everybody needs the technology. So yeah. Thank you so much. Wow. This has just been fascinating, and I am a fan. Abran: I appreciate it. Anne: Yeah, absolutely. How can our listeners, if they're interested in helping out in some way -- because what a bunch of great projects that you're working on -- how can they get in touch with you? Abran: Um, we are fairly responsive on all the socials. So LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, probably in that order, maybe Instagram first, we find most of our fans and our supporters are on Instagram. Anne: Fantastic. Abran: We answer the contact form on our website. Anne: Okay. Abran: If you navigate to CLAiRA's Instagram page, she's -- her appearances and her bookings are being handled by the leadership organization that's working with her -- Anne: Okay. Abran: Trill or Not Trill. So you'll get in contact with probably Jeff or Lenny if you have like an appearance that you want her to make. Anne: Okay. Abran: And, you know, come to us with your technology needs, because if you come to us for any design work or development work, all that's going into the, to the hands of the folks that need the work the most. Anne: Fantastic. And CLAiRA is C-L-A-I-R-A. Abran: Yes, correct. Anne: So you have to have the AI in there. So -- Abran: You gotta have the AI in there. Anne: Yeah, so, wow, thank you so much, Abran. It's been a pleasure having you and -- Abran: Likewise. Anne: -- I can't wait to see what you guys are going to be doing next. So in the meantime, I'm going to give a great, big shout-out to our sponsor, ipDTL, that allows me to connect like a BOSS. You can find out more at ipdtl.com.

Four shuttles made by two different companies will take a 3-mile loop around the city's test track alongside regular traffic on Technology Parkway, wedged between Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Ga. 141.“We're talking about the deployment of first-of-its-kind technology on a public road,” said City Manager Brian Johnson during a press conference. The 5G-powered shuttles, some made by Arizona's Local Motors and others by French-based Navya, will make seven stops within 25 minutes when traversing the city's technology hub. The free-to-ride shuttles will begin operating 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday in about two weeks.SOURCE: www.GwinnettDailyPost.com

Taking a daily multivitamin seems like it might be good insurance - but is it? This episode begins with a discussion about what taking a multivitamin does or does not do for you or your kids. https://www.fredhutch.org/en/news/releases/2009/02/multivitamins.html With online dating and all the dating apps, it would seem that dating should be a lot easier. After all, you can meet an endless number of people you would never meet otherwise. Is online dating a great way to meet people? Or is the old-fashioned way still the best way? Or maybe there is an even better way. Listen as I speak with Jon Birger, an award-winning magazine writer and author of the book Make Your Move: The New Science of Dating and Why Women Are in Charge (https://amzn.to/3ApiNKe). He has some very important information, research and advice that may change the way you meet people from now on. People have been talking about and proposing a 4-day work week for a long time. But it hasn't really caught on in most places. This may be about to change according to Joe Sanok. Joe has researched the origins of our 40 hour, 5-day work week and explains why a shorter week can really be good for business and employees. Joe joins me to explain why circumstances today might be perfect to usher in the 4-day work week and how you will benefit from it. Joe Sanok is author of the book Thursday Is The New Friday (https://amzn.to/3oGQBjL). Flipping a coin may seem like an arbitrary and rather ridiculous way to make a decision. But maybe not. Listen as I explain why flipping a coin can actually be a very good way to choose what to do when you can't decide. https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703694204575518200704692936 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

We've run out of guests for the time being so you're just stuck with boring old Scott and Iain. They start by reviewing the latest 5G tender from China Mobile and what it might mean for the future of the global telecoms industry. Orange had a strategy day earlier in the week, which they both attended, so them move on to review that before concluded with the latest dramas around Facebook.
I'll bet there have been times when someone has offered to help you and you declined. You probably said something like, “No, that's ok I got it.”? Well, why say that? Why we are so reluctant to ask other people for help when we likely could use it? This episode begins with a discussion on why asking for help is hard and yet it is one of the smartest things you will ever do. http://rd.com/advice/relationships/phrases-make-people-trust/ Your Life is ruled by chance and probability. Yet how much do you understand about them? Ian Stewart knows about them better than most people. Ian is a Professor Emeritus of math at the University of Warwick in England and author of the book Do Dice Play God?: The Mathematics of Uncertainty (https://amzn.to/2MWjer8). Listen as he explains, for example, how a slot machine appears to be “hot” one day but not another. Or, what really determines whether a coin flip will end in heads or tails. And most importantly, how this all applies to you. When women sit down at a restaurant, where do they typically put their purse? They sling it over the back of the chair or put it on the floor. Listen as I explain why both of those options are really bad ideas that can easily get your identity stolen. I'll also explain a simple way every woman can secure her purse and never worry again. http://rd.com/advice/travel/purse-theft-safe/ Motivational speakers can be very inspiring – but motivation for you can't really come from someone else's story. Susan Fowler, author of the book Master Your Motivation: Three Scientific Truths for Achieving Your Goals (https://amzn.to/2HJneXV) joins me to explain the real science of motivation – and how it works.

Today we're joined by Joseph Soriaga, a senior director of technology at Qualcomm. In our conversation with Joseph, we focus on a pair of papers that he and his team will be presenting at Globecom later this year. The first, Neural Augmentation of Kalman Filter with Hypernetwork for Channel Tracking, details the use of deep learning to augment an algorithm to address mismatches in models, allowing for more efficient training and making models more interpretable and predictable. The second paper, WiCluster: Passive Indoor 2D/3D Positioning using WiFi without Precise Labels, explores the use of rf signals to infer what the environment looks like, allowing for estimation of a person's movement. We also discuss the ability for machine learning and AI to help enable 5G and make it more efficient for these applications, as well as the scenarios that ML would allow for more effective delivery of connected services, and look towards what might be possible in the near future. The complete show notes for this episode can be found at twimlai.com/go/525.
Can you actually get sick from being sad? Can prolonged sadness shorten your lifespan? A lot of people think so. This episode begins by looking at the scientific link between sadness and health. http://www.ox.ac.uk/news/2015-12-08-happiness-and-unhappiness-have-no-direct-effect-mortality It would be great if people noticed how competent you are on their own. But that rarely happens. If you want to be seen as confident and competent you have to project that image out to the world. Listen as I speak with Jack Nasher, a consultant and negotiation trainer is author of the book Convinced: How to Prove Your Competence and Win People Over (https://amzn.to/2BqWojk). Jack explains what it takes to really get people (including your boss) to see just how great you are and how well you do your job. What time is it at the North Pole? Why does a whip crack? Why do people stick out their tongue when they are concentrating on a task? These are just some of the interesting questions I tackle with science writer Ivan Semeniuk. Ivan along with New Scientist magazine, published a book called Why Don't Penguins Feet Freeze? (https://amzn.to/2R6JMHV) ( and yes we answer that one too.) which explores some of these fascinating questions you've always wondered about. Some foods we call “comfort” foods. Why? It turns out your favorite comfort food has more to do with who cooked it for you and where you were when you first ate it than it does with the food itself.

China is on the rise, with the world's largest navy and on track to have the world's largest economy. Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's Secretary-General, tells POLITICO's Ryan Heath about his plan to stay one step ahead of China's advances. Plus: he has a message for France on the recent U.S.-Australia submarine deal. Stay tuned after the interview for a debrief with POLITICO's Usha Sahay, who gives her take on the contenders to replace Stoltenberg once his term ends next fall — and how the U.S.-Australia submarine deal could tip the scales. A big thanks to Nirmal Mulaikal for fact checking this episode. Jens Stoltenberg is the Secretary-General of NATO. Usha Sahay is a senior editor at POLITICO Magazine. Ryan Heath is the host of the "Global Insider" podcast and authors the newsletter. Olivia Reingold produces “Global Insider.” Irene Noguchi edits “Global Insider” and is the executive producer of POLITICO Audio.
It's called The Pink Tax. It's when the women's version of a product (like razors) costs more than men's even though it is exactly the same - except maybe the packaging and the color. It happens with a lot of products from toys to clothes - to razors.. This episode begins with an explanation of which women's products cost more and why it might be better to buy the men's version. https://www.voanews.com/a/usa_all-about-america_does-pink-tax-force-women-pay-more-men/6177789.html People like to move. We go places. We go to work or to the store or on vacation or to grandma's house. For thousands of years, we have been trying to find better and faster ways to get from here to there. Listen to my conversation with Tom Standage as he explains the fascinating history of personal transportation and how it is changing right now in a big way. In fact, he reveals why one of the biggest innovations in transportation today is the smartphone! Tom is deputy editor of The Ecomomist - author of A Brief History of Motion: From the Wheel to the Car, to What Comes Next (https://amzn.to/3A8G2s9).
