Today we're joined by Richard Zhang, senior research scientist at Adobe Research. In our conversation with Richard, we explore the research challenges that arise when regarding visual generative AI from an ecosystem perspective, considering the disparate needs of creators, consumers, and contributors. We start with his work on perceptual metrics and the LPIPS paper, which allow us to better align human perception and computer vision and which remain used in contemporary generative AI applications such as stable diffusion, GANs, and latent diffusion. We look at his work creating detection tools for fake visual content, highlighting the importance of generalization of these detection methods to new, unseen models. Lastly, we dig into his work on data attribution and concept ablation, which aim to address the challenging open problem of allowing artists and others to manage their contributions to generative AI training data sets.

The Boreal Forest is the worlds LARGEST forested biome! Understanding the inner workings of such a callosal giant can be overwhelming. Now add climate change to the mix. What does the future hold? Luckily, an enormous team of researchers have banded together to create this incredible book that details what we need to do to keep the Boreal Forest healthy, and thriving, for the foreseeable future. Did I mention this incredible resource is completely FREE? See show notes for that link. ResourcesBoreal Forests in the Face of Climate Change: Sustainable Management (Volume 74)SponsorsWest FraserGreenLink Forestry Inc.Quotes07.46 - 07.54: “When I look at the current situation, I feel like the major challenge of humanity right now is climate change.”TakeawaysFor the love of boreal forests (04.39)Sylvie is an Emeritus Research Scientist with the Canadian Forest Service at Natural Resources Canada, Miguel is the Professor of Forest Ecology and Guillaume is the Professor of Aquatic Ecology at the University of Quebec. The book they created is written to draw attention to the boreal forest, which represents 25% of the forest cover in the world. Inclusive writing (14.40)Sylvie mentions that between 60 and 170 authors from different fields - forestry, ecology and environmental science - came together to create this book. Miguel was surprised by the support received for the book. Healthy and resilient forests under climate change (21.33)Miguel highlights that it is essential to maintain a balance between natural and managed landscapes in order to maintain a healthy ecosystem. Sylvie points out that taking a deterministic approach to forestry does not work in the face of a constantly changing natural world. Ecosystem management on the disturbance regime (28.42)Sylvie explains that fire creates diversity at the landscape level which harvesting doesn't allow. By understanding the natural disturbance regime of the forest, they can better manage the managed forest. The current disturbances are related to temperature fluctuations from climate change, which impact the health and resilience of forests.Climate change is here (36.19)Miguel urges listeners to note how frequent climate change impacts have become, and provides examples from different regions that have had hurricanes and storms. Guillaume notes that lakes in some northern countries are becoming browner. Managing forests for the future (50.55)Sylvie shares some tactical decisions made for management planning, including diversifying seed sources and strategic planning of annual allowable count. Miguel adds that they want to preserve forests applying ecosystem management and diversity plantation to increase productivity and tap into their carbon sequestration potential. Human - forest interactions (59.10)Miguel says human-forest interactions will be the basis of forest management in the future, to achieve sustainability in the economy, ecology and society. He touches upon the spiritual aspect of Indigenous forest interaction and how Indigenous communities value preserving their ecosystems. Love is the greatest force (1.11.51)Miguel believes that people must be more flexible in their approaches in the light of the new information on global climate change. Their book speaks to this commonality across the globe, and speaks to cooperation amongst scientists everywhere to improve solutions.

[54:03] Carson used simple items already in her kitchen to formulate C & The Moon. [57:39] Creating intentionality with C & The Moon's products, and how friends and family encouraged her to start making these products available that they knew were helping their skin and a safe, clean choice. [59:08] As a low maintenance beauty girl herself, one of Carson's favorite C & The Moon products is their Malibu Made Glow Oil.

It would be some type of braised meat or stew, and would end with a sumptuous chocolate and whipped cream dessert.

Todd Goldstein — Founder & CEO of Whoa DoughIn 2008, Todd co-founded LaunchHouse with the mission to invest, develop, and foster promising idea-stage startups in Northeast, OH through Community, Education, Coworking, and Investment — and through LaunchHouse, has helped grow a diverse portfolio of 65 companies that collectively raised more than $30 million in follow in funding.Todd's most recent endeavor — among his many as a serial founder, entrepreneur, investor, and advocate for intellectual property rights — and where we'll spend most of the conversation today, is Whoa Dough, which he founded back in 2019 in the aftermath of discovering his 3 boys were diagnosed with severe gluten intolerance and now sells millions of healthy snack bars per year.The reality is that 32 million Americans suffer from food allergies, of which 5.6 million are children — a number that has grown drastically over the past few decades. At first, Todd thought he and his family's cookie-dough-eating days were over, but he quickly realized that he was intolerant of that too and took it upon himself to create a snack-happy, natural cookie-dough that could satisfy his family's sweet tooth without wreaking havoc on their bellies. Two years and many dozens of recipes later, Whoa Dough was born — and today is a growing brand that Todd and his team have grown to boast distribution in brands like American Airlines and participation in Mondelez' Snackfutures program all while creating a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, plant-based, kosher, non-GMO, Vegan, natural product!Really enjoyed learning about Todd's journey, passion for building this out in Cleveland, and the momentum of Whoa Dough going forward!-----Lay of The Land is brought to you by Ninety.

In this episode of Work in Progress, I'm joined by Arturo Cázares, the CEO of the Latino Business Action Network (LBAN), to talk about the rapid growth in Latino entrepreneurship in the United States and how empowering these businesses can help the entire economy. We sat down at the Aspen Latino Business Summit in Washington, D.C. in September. Latino-owned businesses, or LOBs, are making a significant contribution to our economy. In the last 10 years, Latinos created half the new companies in the U.S. Currently, there are more than five million LOBs, generating $800 billion in revenue, and creating jobs. Cázares says that contribution could be even bigger if we could unlock more opportunity. He says that these businesses have the potential add another $3 trillion in revenue by 2030, if the entrepreneurs had more access to capital and a stronger network of support for starting and scaling up their companies. That's where the Latino Business Action Network comes in. Its mission is to empower Latino entrepreneurship. Its partner is Stanford University through the jointly led and supported Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative (SLEI) within the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. SLEI is described as "an opportunity designed for U.S. Latino business owners who generate more than $1 million in annual gross revenues or have raised at least $500,000 of external funding. This nine-week immersive program provides business owners with education, enhanced networks, personal mentorship, and a better understanding of how to access and manage capital to scale their businesses." Here is some of what Cázares tells me about the work LBAN is doing. "The way that I phrase it is for Latino entrepreneurship, we're building the ecosystem that Latinos have always deserved, but maybe we haven't always enjoyed because of the other challenges in our society. "Almost 1,100 Latina and Latino business owners and founders have gone through our program across the country. That ecosystem includes banks, VCs, angel investors, and a bunch of other organizations that we need to have a truly robust supportive ecosystem. Our ecosystem will include people like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and all of these large organizations. "As we build that ecosystem for ourselves, that ecosystem really is for everyone because we want even Latinos to examine how they're doing things. They're founders. You're a gatekeeper by default. You're deciding who to hire, who to partner with. So, if you can think about those processes better and think about all those things that used to keep us out – but now you do it a little better for everyone – that's opening up the economy for everyone, that's creating the ecosystem for the country that everyone needs. "Stated in the mission, our purpose is to grow the American economy, but it's through this Latino lens of entrepreneurship. We're empowering Latino entrepreneurship, but the ultimate goal is to grow the American economy for everyone. We're in this country, we want to be a full part of it, and we want the whole country to prosper."

Sara van Rensburg, former CEO of CTLF and organizational strategist, discusses the concept of business as an ecosystem. She explains that regenerative leadership focuses on creating conditions for health and abundance to be naturally recurring outcomes rather than something that needs to be forced. Regenerative leadership entails creating conditions that support the well-being and growth of all stakeholders involved, including employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community. Instead of relying on forceful measures or short-term gains, this approach focuses on nurturing sustainable relationships and fostering long-term success.After listening you will:Learn the importance of clearly defining the values and purpose of an organization Understand how to create an environment where people understand what kind of ecosystem they are in Realize the need for effective communication for long-term successDefine the role of leaders in creating conditions for their teams to thrive//WHEN YOU'RE READY, HERE'S HOW WE CAN HELP YOU//TAKE THE FREE 5-MINUTE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT ASSESSMENThttps://turningthecornerllc.com/hr/employee-engagement/assessment/DOWNLOAD A FREE SELF-ASSESSMENT:https://turningthecornerllc.com/free-assessment/SCHEDULE A CALL WITH A HUMAN RESOURCES CONSULTANThttps://turningthecornerllc.com/LISTEN TO OUR PODCASTApple Podcasts:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/how-i-turned-the-corner/id1637875430Spotify:https://open.spotify.com/show/2S4sGuOSeXWXIKY7zMW1p5Google Podcast:https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5wb2RldGl6ZS5jb20vcnNzL05lTUhWV0tSSQiHeart Radio:https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-how-i-turned-the-corner-100448118/HIRE KENDRA AS A CONSULTANT OR KEYNOTE SPEAKERhttps://kendraprospero.com/__________Say hello on social:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TurningthecornerllcJobsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TurningTheCornerLLCInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/turning_the_corner/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/turning-the-corner/

In this episode of The 5G Factor, we focus on what is driving the swift worldwide expansion of 5G services and what next steps are critical for the 5G ecosystem to fulfill its overall potential. We identify the key steps as including understanding 5G Advanced and why it defines the next major phase of 5G, why accelerating the transition to the 5G Standalone (SA) network architecture is essential, and the impact of disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and edge computing on significantly improving 5G capabilities. Joining host Ron Westfall is Durga Malladi, SVP & GM, Technology Planning & Edge Solutions, Qualcomm. Their conversation examines the following key topics: Why CSPs need to accelerate their transition to 5G SA network architectures to assure that the mobile ecosystem is fully prepared for 5G Advanced. How 5G SA enables new differentiated services that can generate revenue streams through capabilities such as network slicing and ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) as well as realizing major cost savings by moving away from maintaining 5G and LTE/4G core networks. Only devices in 5G SA mode support new performance enhancements such as power saving features and spectrum aggregation. Where 5G SA is already delivering benefits to CSP networks in key markets such as China and India (Jio). The impact of today's disruptive technologies, such as AI/ML and edge computing, on driving 5G connectivity improvements in key areas such as better speeds, location accuracy, coverage, link robustness, and mobility. How the 5G network can play a vital role in assuring that CSPs meet their sustainability and ESG objectives.

Check then out on SHOPAssociation.orgIn a minute, we'll dig into my discussion with Yasmine Mahmoudieh - architect, designer, and tech entrepreneur, who is internationally recognized for ground breaking designs and an unwavering commitment to sustainability. But first a few thoughts to set up our talk…****************I remember back in 2009 going to see the movie Avatar. The narrative followed a typical story of white man's colonization and subjugation of an indigenous peoples - this time on Pandora - a planet light years away from earth - because presumably we had succeeded in trashing our own planet and had gone off to exploit the natural resources of another. There were multiple other themes written into the script but in principle it dealt with what I would characterize as corporate greed and the decimation of natural landscapes an indigenous peoples. The singular motivation to mining the planet's natural resources?... the billions of dollars of revenue for a large corporation who was mining a natural resource called “unobtanium.” Naturally the corporation militarized their operations under the guise that the 10 foot tall blue-skinned sapient humanoid indigenous peoples called the Na'vi - as well as the flora a fauna were… lethal. Another re-telling of big bad corporations exercising their power over a helpless people by flexing their military muscle with sociopathic leaders with a bent for murderous behavior. And adding insult to narrative injury, there was the denial of science and the well intentioned initiatives of creating Avatars of the Na'vi where humans could transfer consciousness into alien bodies cultivated in an enormous incubation chamber, that would then animate and go out among the native beings and infiltrate their community with the intention of learning more about them.OK... So this is a story that we're pretty familiar with.Notwithstanding the re-telling of a narrative we all know, James Cameron the director, brough the theater-going public compelling visualizations of an imaginary verdant jungle-like environment. On the big screen of a movie theater it was immersive and realistic. I'd say that for a while Avatar was a superb example of the use computer generated imagery that brought viewers into the experience of a distant world.Ok, so as not to get bogged down with the nasty-self-serving-humans part of the story ...…one of the key feature of this world was the Home Tree (which the humans eventually destroyed as well). Ok sorry I had to add that in…Home Tree - and all other tress for that matter - created an eco-system, an integrated network, that was connected underground. For the Na'vi people, Eywa was the living deity but not in the physical form humans would have expected.Eywa was a biological sentient guiding force of life and was physicalized through a network of plants, trees and other wildlife that stretched across Pandora. Eywa acted to maintain equilibrium among all things.Now… the obvious connection to be drawn here is the idea that our earth is a massive ecosystem and that there is an urgent need for our collective understanding that everything in this ecosystem works as a complex set of interdependencies. Everything is connected to everything. Our life energy is intimately intertwined with the planet's natural resources. We are from the earth. Though, I believe, many often see themselves as separated from it.I seem to have been having an increasing number of conversation with people where one of the things we end up returning to is sustainability. What the building industry does in negative ways to the environment and by consequence us, emotionally and physically.The conversation is encompassing straight up building practice, materials and finishes and what the CO2 contribution is to the planet when we build things, anything. Not a good thing for the environment and by extension not a good thing for us.and… what the effect of the building typologies has to do with our emotional well-being – a field called Neuroaesthetics – how he built environment affects us at a mind-body level.The sea of sameness and a building stock of overwhelming banality can undermine a sense of well-being. We are born experience expectant and our brains love novelty. The brain isn't fond of being bored.And yet, many of our urban environments are monotonous. So not only is the building industry responsible for about 40% of the CO2 in the atmosphere contributing to the global climate problem, the buildings we are putting into the environment are, from the neuroaesthetics point of view, often not contributing to our sense of wellbeing since they often create city blocks that area mundane.This is where my guest Yasmine Mahmoudieh enters the scene. Her work has earned her numerous international design awards, including the prestigious Global Sustainability Award in 2022 for her contributions to architecture and design in hospitality. With an illustrious career spanning prestigious institutions, she serves as a visiting professor at renowned establishments such as EHL Hotel School and Institut Paul Bocuse, inspiring emerging talents in the field. Mahmoudieh seamlessly integrates modern technologies with traditional design principles, crafting captivating and immersive spaces that engage all senses.With an unwavering passion for harmonizing functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability, Mahmoudieh continues to shape the future of architecture and design with her profound influence and visionary approach.So why the whole description of the movie Avatar and undergound connections between trees and other forest plants?Because that idea directly aligns with the emerging use of mycillium. What is mycelium?Mycellium is tubular thread of cells that spread through the soil underground and connects the roots of plants to one another. It is like the earth's natural internet. Everything is connected…Why would understanding the portential use of Mycellium as a building material be important ?Well… it is a naturally occurring substance and research suggests that it has a positive effect on enhancing immune strength.As a prominent global ambassador for eco-conscious practices, Yasmine Mahmoudieh pioneers sustainable construction techniques, utilizing recycled plastics through 3D printing and exploring mycelium as a substitute for traditional building materials.The Na'vi and Eywa had something goin' on. And humans just bulldozed it all in search for a rock in the ground. A familiar story with tragic outcomes.I think that the more we turn to ancient indigenous traditions, understand them and perhaps augment them with modern science, the more we may find solutions to some of the more profound eco challenges we now face.ABOUT DAVID KEPRON:LinkedIn Profile: linkedin.com/in/david-kepron-9a1582bWebsites: https://www.davidkepron.com (personal website)vmsd.com/taxonomy/term/8645 (Blog)Email: david.kepron@NXTLVLexperiencedesign.comTwitter: DavidKepronPersonal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidkepron/NXTLVL Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nxtlvl_experience_design/Bio:David Kepron is a multifaceted creative professional with a deep curiosity to understand ‘why', ‘what's now' and ‘what's next'.

Gerald Hetrick (CEO of Bezlio & Professional EOS Implementer) Gerald has been on the show once before; those of you who've been with Lay of The Land from the beginning may recall Gerald as one of the first entrepreneurs to make an appearance back on Episode #6, which I'd encourage anyone interested in learning Gerald's personal and entrepreneurial journey co-founding and leading two companies from inception to exit — spanning his time building Vox Mobile and Able — to take a listen to that episode… Gerald's an incredible storyteller and sets a great stage there for our conversation today where we pick up on where we left off and cover what's transpired in the years since.And it's pretty incredible how much has changed in this interim period and how impactful Gerald has been in driving that change. As CEO of Able, Gerlad led the organization through five years of 100% Year-Over-Year growth, a $7 million Series B fundraise, and ultimately a successful exit in early 2022 to Bullhorn, a leading software platform for the staffing and recruiting industry.With the time and space to reflect post-acquisition, Gerald resolved to be retrospective and learn from the lessons of his failures and successes over his 25 years of entrepreneurial experience. In this time, he came to the conclusion that he loves building great companies and that so many of the issues he struggled with in the process of building great companies were self-inflected, recognizing how much more impactful he could have been if he had prioritized running on a consistent business operating system, like EOS, and that ultimately these operating systems provide leverage, and not overhead.Collectively, these realizations amounted to Gerald becoming CEO of another Cleveland growth-oriented technology startup called Bezlio, and starting his own EOS implementation practice, coaching other growth-minded leaders willing to invest in making their visions reality and their teams as healthy as possible!At Bezlio, Gerald is focused on ensuring manufacturing shop-floor employees know what to do next and how to do it right, believing deeply in Bezlio's opportunity to significantly drive middle-market manufacturing growth and prosperity. To that end, Bezlio recently closed a $4.5 million seed round to invest in massive product improvements to its cloud-based mobile ERP (Enterprise resource planning) platform, their go-to-market strategy, and customer relationships.This was a really fun and candid conversation, understanding how Gerald has evolved as a leader, closing Able's chapter, starting Bezlio's chapter, building his coaching practice in service of other founders trying to build great organizations, his approach to dreaming big and operating practically, and many other reflections along the way.-----Lay of The Land is brought to you by Burton D.
