    This week on 8111, Nelson Hall. Nelson is that rare breed…a Marin native. Oh, and his birthday is on Halloween! Growing up he loved watching old movies on TV. He was captivated by the films of Ray Harryhausen and the Wizard of Oz. He always liked drawing and making things including several Rube Goldberg contraptions in his family's living room.He attended Sonoma State for a time and studied art. Still searching for a way to get into a creative job, he landed a job at the Printing Factory on Kerner Blvd. just two blocks from ILM. He transferred to San Francisco State (Go Gaters!) and continued his degree in art taking classes at night while working full-time.Nelson's speech 101 teacher, Diana Reese, gave him his first break. He'd given a speech on the art of visual effects and his teacher offered to introduce him to her friend, ILM model maker Marc Thorpe. That introduction led to some freelance work that eventually turned into a full-time opportunity.Nelson has worked on numerous films including; Alive, Fire in the Sky, The Flintstones, Star Trek: Generations, Congo, Daylight, Flubber, Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, Galaxy Quest, AI, Matrix 2 & 3, Attack of the Clones, War of the Worlds, Pirates of the Caribbean, Evan Almighty, The Cove, Pacific Rim, Elysium, and many others. Nelson shares a great story of his journey from Marin kid to traveling the world working on films, special events, projects for Disney, and operating R2D2. It was a blast to catch up with Nelson and hear his incredible story.

    Today we reminisce about our House of Blues gig. We played a party and it was amazing! BJ joins me and describes it like a “fever dream” – Yeah, we were playing our set at the house of blues, and it was interrupted by the original R2D2 and some legit storm troupers. Then as we were breaking down to move to the other room, William Hung and the “She Bang dancers” comes out to the stage. Then I pass Oscar from the office in the green room and Flava Flav wearing his clock taking some pictures with guests… it actually sounds like a fever dream. Anyway, throw in some Hollywood Zombies, the original DeLorean from back to the future and a $1,000 pinball contest – it was a great night. And – the cherry on top – we killed out 3 sets!

    Hey Listener, grab your lightsaber and power up the Millennium Falcon because Stand Up Comedian/Co-Host of the Bastard Sermon Luke Young is back on the show and we're talking about Star Wars. This week we're chatting about who and what we love (Light Side) and hate (Dark Side) the most in the Star Wars universe. Topics this week include: It's Luke's third appearance on the show and he wants to be courted. People call you Lukey? Have you thought about just being Brendan Schaub, Bapa? Luke doesn't trust people, that's why he doesn't have a sports car. Is it tattooing anime or tattooing manga? Star Wars: a family affair. Luke Young: Amatuer Star Wars historian. Don't disregard the EU (a recurring theme of this episode). Just because it's different doesn't mean it's good. How embarrassing must it be to get taken out by R2-D2? Balancing the Force is basically AA. We don't want political statesmen in our laser sword fantasy. Vice-Admiral Holdo's “plan” was the Titanic. The Ole Miss Admiral Ackbars and other sick pop culture mascots. Hey CIA, you can lie to us about Greedo or JFK, not both. Get these space scooter kids out of here. What is your favorite alien that doesn't speak English and your host has issues with Ewoks. Head kicking Porgs. What happened to the Rancor Monster Trainer?  Your host really needs to get a producer for the show. Keep the Star Wars color palette neutral. Land Speeders the Toyota Corollas of the Star Wars Universe. Space Boston. Ugh, Jar Jar Binks. Proto sabers suck. You can murder all of the aliens and dudes in helmets that you want.  To help the show grow please give it 5 Stars on Apple Podcast or Spotify.

    Episode 93 – The Future of Autonomy and Combat Airpower: Understanding the Imperative Episode Summary: In Episode 93 of the Aerospace Advantage podcast, The Future of Autonomy and Combat Airpower: Understanding the Imperative, host John Baum chats with Mike Benitez of Shield AI, Andrew Van Timmeren of Blue Force Technologies, plus Heather Penney and Caitlin Lee from the Mitchell Institute team about one of the most exciting developments in combat airpower: autonomy. It's been the subject of science fiction for decades—the ability for aircraft to operate with a level of independent decision making that allows them to execute missions on their own. These are technologies that effectively bring Star Wars' R2D2 to life. We are going to break this down across three episodes. First, we're going look at the imperative: why do we need to pursue increased autonomy? In the second episode, we're going to look at better defining the technology and its applications. We'll bring it all together in the third episode by considering autonomy's application in an operational context. Throughout all of these conversations, it is important to recognize that autonomy in the lab is one thing but making it useful and resilient in the battlespace is another. Technology doesn't exist for its own sake—it's fundamentally about achieving mission results more effectively. Credits: Host: Lt Col (Ret.)

    The computer on the Starship Enterprise that crew members could talk to. R2-D2. Jarvis.Science fiction has been showing us AI and digital assistants for years. And Josselyn Boudett and the team at Stella Automotive AI are bringing them to life. Stella is a phone answering AI that books service appointments while helping customers get loaners or talk to specific employees. It's unlike anything on the market today. Josselyn explains how Stella came to be and how digital voice assistants will become more prevalent in the future.What we talk about in this episode:0:00 Intro with Michael Cirillo, Paul J Daly and Kyle Mountsier.4:59 Josselyn's company, Telepathy Labs, isn't specifically automotive focused, but it has a lot of background in automotive. The voice team's background was building onboard speaking systems for cars in the early 2000s.6:52 Stella AI started off talking about parts for heavy machinery. But then Josselyn took Stella to NADA and everyone started asking if it would work on a dealership phone system.12:47 Stella is a true artificial intelligence. Most of the telephone systems that we have are IVR systems, or Interactive Voice Response. Paul and Josselyn talk about the differences between IVR and AI.21:01 Josselyn thinks there will come a time when you won't need a keyboard anymore. Instead, you'll use a digital voice assistant.⭐️ Love the podcast? Please leave us a review here — even one sentence helps!

    In The Rise of SKywalker, Leia uses the Force to reach out to her son while he is engaged in a furious lightsaber duel with Rey on the ruins of the Death Star. Maz Kanata tells R2-D2 that this gesture will take all the strength Leia has left. And it does; Leia passes away after reaching her son. Some have wondered how such a simple gesture could cause Leia's death, but others have theorized that she used the Force to draw out the memory of Han Solo from Ben's mind, thus giving him the opportunity to achieve closure with his estranged father. I agree with the latter. Join me and I'll explain. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

In this episode, we give love to the OGs and many more, including some that might be lesser known or don't get the love and attention they most certainly deserve. Plus, we ask the question: Do droids feel? Do they form bonds? Are they more sentient than they first appear?

    Hosts: TJ, Brett, & Krissy This week on the show: Segment One: We welcome a special guest this week as Brett's wife, Krissy, joins in the fun. Brett gets upset trying to fix his fertilizer sprayer. Krissy has to attend a bridal shower at the crack of dawn. TJ takes a road trip to a vintage camper rally (more fun than it sounds like), reveals a horrifying medical situation (also more fun than it sounds like), and a blind date (not so much). Segment Two: FGS brings us the original Bloodhound Gang, a man poses as Disney World security to steal bathroom fixtures and an R2D2 statue, and a 60 man cruise ship Battle Royale. HOT TAKES covers the passing of former defensive tackle Tony Siragusa, the season one finale of Obi Wan Kenobi (with an introduction to a fancier Lord Vader), and it's game time as TJ brings in another round of NAME THAT BACKWARDS TUNE. Segment Three: Krissy handles REDDIT FUN duties as The Hive asks “What car most signifies it's owner is a douchebag?” Plus, PICKS O' THE WEEK. Happy Birthday, ‘Merica, from THE QUAD M SHOW!
