Why We Need Robots with Kind Faces with Bertram Malle
Bertram Malle, PhD teaches social cognitive science and social psychology at Brown University, he’s the author of dozens of articles and has focused his recent work on how humans feel about robots, and researches how the etiquette and facial abilities of robots impact how we perceive them. His research indicates that the more human-looking a robot is – especially in its “face” – the more humans are likely to attribute emotions or moral codes to them. Bertram’s work reminds us that the context we experience robots in influences the relationships we build. Maybe more importantly, Bertram reminded us that robots must be designed to exist in very specific contexts. The appearance and communication abilities of a robot that checks us into a doctor’s office needs to be very different from the robots we use to assist us with making an airline reservation. While that may be intuitive on one level, it highlights the remarkable complexity required in the design and manufacturing of these robots. Each one needs to be built for a specific purpose – there is no one-size-fits-all with robots. Bertram reminded us that it’s difficult to imagine that robots will ever reach the complexity and flexibility of their human counterparts. We also parsed out the differences between hope and optimism. This topic was particularly important to because we’re too often conflating the two. Hope, Bertram explained, is something we have when we lack confidence or influence in the outcome. And optimism exists where we might have some degree of influence over the outcome. We hope you enjoy our conversation with Bertram Malle. © 2021 Behavioral Grooves Links Bertram Malle, PhD email: bfmalle@brown.edu Social Cognitive Science Research Lab (Brown University): http://research.clps.brown.edu/SocCogSci/index.html Bertram Malle, “Theory of Mind”: https://nobaproject.com/modules/theory-of-mind Bertram Malle & Patty Bruininks “Distinguishing Hope from Optimism and Related Affective States”: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/226421327_Distinguishing_Hope_from_Optimism_and_Related_Affective_States Bertram Malle Selected Publications: http://research.clps.brown.edu/SocCogSci/Publications/publications.html ABOT: http://www.abotdatabase.info/ MIT Lab on Automated Vehicles: https://www.media.mit.edu/research/?filter=everything&tag=autonomous-vehicles “Her” film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Her_(film) “Ex Machina” film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ex_Machina_(film) TAY: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tay_(bot) Isaac Asimov: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Asimov Jóhann Jóhannsson: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B3hann_J%C3%B3hannsson Hildur Guðnadóttir: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hildur_Gu%C3%B0nad%C3%B3ttir Fritz Heider, PhD & Marianne Simmel, PhD, “An experimental study of apparent behavior”: https://psycnet.apa.org/record/1945-01435-001 Common Biases and Heuristics: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XHpBr0VFcaT8wIUpr-9zMIb79dFMgOVFRxIZRybiftI/edit?usp=sharing Minnesota Timberwolves: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Timberwolves Musical Links Radiohead “Hail to the Thief”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MdwaUtW_D4 Esbjörn Svensson Trio “Seven Days of Falling”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7KXq6RJ0PA Bill Dixon “Motorcycle ‘66”: https://youtu.be/ZcO8zfp-FLg Tyshawn Sorey “Unfiltered”: https://tyshawn-sorey.bandcamp.com/album/unfiltered Sigur Ros “Brennisteinn”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc6zXSdYXm8 Hildur Gu∂nadottir “Unveiled”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzaxVFc9oIs Anders Hillborg “Violin Concerto No. 1”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrJ7rhQDjsE Daniel Lanois with the Venetian Snares: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9u93SDxNsk Daniel Lanois with Parachute Club: https://www.discogs.com/The-Parachute-Club-Rise-Up/release/1209691 The Bad Plus “Never Stop II”: https://thebadplus.bandcamp.com/album/never-stop-ii Iceland Symphony Orchestra, “Recurrence”: https://nationalsawdust.org/thelog/2017/02/16/playlist-9/ David Chesky, “Jazz in the new harmonic”: https://chesky.com/products/jazz-in-the-new-harmonic-david-chesky-download Kings of Leon, “Sex on Fire”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RF0HhrwIwp0 “Annihilation” soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9eidResq9g “Tenet” soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVMkvCTT_yg

Ep 363: The Personal Side of Loire with Serge Dore Importer
Serge Doré, importer of French wine (and American via Quebec…he’s a man of many identities and a worldliness we can only aspire to!) and popular podcast regular, joins us to talk about the Loire Valley. Serge has been visiting the Loire since 1985 and has seen its evolution over the decades. He joins to give us the world of Loire from his perspective, humanize it with stories of producers he imports and some he has just met, and tell us what we can expect from this sometime confusing but wonderfully beautiful and diverse French wine region (for those of you interested in tariffs and how they are affecting business, the last 5 minutes of the pod is also devoted to that topic!). Here are the notes: * Serge takes us through the main Loire regions. We being in Muscadet/the Pay Nantais. We discuss how far the wine has come in the last 20 years, and what good quality it is now. Serge says it reminds him of a ripe honeydew melon, so the grape name is fitting (the grape is called Melon de Bourgogne). He mentions Domaine Bouchaud whose wines he imports. I mention Domaine Louvetrie as an example of a very rocky, flinty Muscadet. * We talk about Anjou and the lovely Chenin Blanc here. We focus first on Savennières, and then discuss the sweet wines of Quarts de Chaume, Coteaux de Layon, and others in the area. Serge talks about his early experiences with these stunning, yet rare wines. * We take a side trip to Sancerre. Serge confirms my hypothesis that Sancerre can sell all day long, but that Pouilly-Fumé has no takers! I mention the great Didier Dageneau and his Silex wine. * We discuss the marketing issue for Loire – namely that they don’t know how to do it! I fell that Anjou blanc and rouge, as well as Saumur blanc and rouge are generally generic and don’t taste great. Serge explains that most growers sell to negociants and co-ops who make seas of blah wines that aren’t from specific areas. The result: Rouge and Blanc from these parts are hard to pin down from a style perspective. * Serge loves Saumur- Champigny – a Cabernet Franc that is light, fruity, lower in alcohol but has great earthy notes. Thierry Germain is the master and is imported by Kermit Lynch. I say I have found it to be hit or miss. Serge reminds me: it’s all about producer. * Serge talks about why Touraine is the upcoming region of France and has been for a few years. He cites climate change as making a big difference for the ripeness levels and flavors for Touraine. 2015 was the big shift in the wines. We mention my new favorite Chinon and St. Nicholas de Bourgueil: Pascal et Alain Lourieux (available on Wine Access). Serge tells us stories about how absolutely focused these brothers are on the vineyard to get the results they do. The story is funny and amazing. * Ahhh, Vouvray! It’s a frustrating topic. Serge tells us about how hard it is to sell because of its many styles and we return to one of the themes of the Loire: superb wines, no marketing savvy. The wine of Serge’s that I love is Domaine Bourillon Dorléans “La Coulee d’Argent”. It had some age (which I think Vouvray really needs) and was very flinty, with lemon curd and vanilla notes – tasty! Serge tells us stories of Fred Bourillon, his family and his wine. We briefly discuss the top dog of Vouvray, Domain Huet who makes outstanding, consistent Vouvray. Source: jamesonf- https://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesonfink/5147142662/ Vouvray AOC moelleux Domaine Huet 1985 * Serge tells us about the terroir of Sancerre and the three soil types that make it stunning: * Les Caillottes * Flint/Silex * Terre Blanche – Clay * We discuss the importance of climate and how the two different climates, which switch off at Amboise from maritime influenced to continental, divide the Loire. Slope, breezes, river effects – all the dorkiness is in this section of the conversation. * Serge and I muse about how natural wine may be a bit overhyped by the media where the Loire is concerned. Low intervention/traditional winemaking is the order of the day with the reds and Chenin however, Serge doesn’t hear producers talk about it. * Finally, we discuss the issues around tariffs and why they are so destructive for the wine industry in the US. I love Serge,having him on is such a pleasure.

140. How Simple Nudges Can Save Hundreds of Millions, interview with Dectech’s Dr. Benny Cheung
Today I get the honor of introducing you to Dr. Benny Cheung, a director of DecTech. You may remember that company’s name as Dr. Henry Stott, a cofounder, joined me on the show in episode 130 to discuss some of their other work. This conversation digs deeper on a specific project that Benny worked on to reduce opportunistic insurance fraud. You’ll get to learn all about it during the episode and I promise it is fascinating to learn how some simple nudges can help reduce a problem of, essentially, little white lies that were costing the UK insurance industry a billion pounds each year. We also get to learn a little about Benny and the research he did studying creatures that may seem very different from humans, but whose behavior we can still learn quite a bit from. He completed a Ph.D. and a two-year postdoctoral research fellowship in the field of behavioural science at the University of Cambridge before joining Dectech. During his academic career, he was involved in commercial projects in the clinical research and biotechnology industries. His areas of expertise include retail, eCommerce, financial services, utilities, telecommunication, and advertising. Show Notes: * [00:40] Today I get the honor of introducing you to Dr. Benny Cheung, a director of Dectech. * [03:11] Benny shares his background and how he got involved in behavioral science. He started in behavioral genomics. * [03:44] Benny joined Dectech in 2005 to apply techniques and technology in behavioral science in a commercial backdrop supporting clients to understand their consumers better. Now the mission at DecTech is to provide the tools that will allow their clients to make more accurate and cost-effective predictions about their consumer’s behavior. * [05:08] A lot of behavior we can trace back to genetics, so you inherit a lot of behavioral traits. * [05:35] Nowadays his focus is more on the commercial backdrop and consumer purchasing commercial decision making. * [06:32] Benny shares about a study he did with worms in 1999 about genetics and how intricately genetics is related to the behavioral outcome. * [07:55] In that study, feeding behavior came down to a single gene. While not all behaviors are that simple, genetics plays a very important role in behavior. Your environment also has a very important role to play. * [09:48] Benny shares about his opportunistic insurance fraud project. They focused on everyday consumers that were giving into temptations of being less than honest at a specific point during their customer life cycle. * [11:29] The project was for the Insurance Fraud Bureau in the UK. * [12:42] Opportunistic fraud is different from high-profile organized fraud because it is often undetected. That is a challenge for the industry. * [12:54] The IFB came to them and asked them to come up with a solution to fight this kind of opportunistic fraud. * [15:27] This type of fraud is typically not planned, instead it is something people choose to do at the moment. * [16:14] Nudges only work well in certain situations. You really can only nudge someone if they are sitting on the fence. * [18:47] Coming up with the intervention messages was the first task. The second task was to come up with a testing paradigm where they could test their effectiveness. * [20:41] The five principles they picked to focus their intervention methods were: norming(herding), consistency, priming, framing, and reciprocity. * [23:10] They prompted in a covert way as customers verified they were not a robot. * [26:04] When you have to focus on the words like in the captcha it has a different impact on the brain. * [26:24] For these interventions to be usable they can’t leave a negative perception or imprint. * [27:11] They tested using a randomized controlled trial. Recreating the realism of applying for motor insurance online was a very important aspect. * [29:24] By comparing peoples’ responses collectively to those contentious questions in the different conditions they could see how effective the interventions were in swaying dishonesty. * [30:13] On average the interventions were able to sway 36% of the dishonesty. An intervention in the norming category was proven most effective and had a 55% impact of dishonesty swaying. * [31:21] Of the 18 interventions they tested only one of them didn’t really work. All of them have shown some positive impact in swaying dishonesty. * [33:47] In behavioral science it is paramount to test. The Holy Grail of testing is doing a real-life trial, but they can be costly and risky to do, and hard to scale. * [36:01] It is beneficial to get out of your way and test things when it is a safe space so you can see what amazing things can come out of it. * [38:53] None of the interventions left a negative impact on the outcome of perceptions. * [40:58] Melina’s closing reflections. * [41:39] In the case of opportunistic fraud, it was important to know that this is often a decision made in the moment instead of premeditated or otherwise planned. This is why the nudges were effective: they appeared right at the moment where someone was teetering on the edge. Where does that exist in your business and what are some nudges you could implement to help encourage behavior for your customers or employees? * [42:52] Grab Melina’s brand new book, What Your Customer Wants (And Can’t Tell You), which is now on presale!

Ellen MacArthur Foundation
Designing a circular economy for fashion - The Fashion Show (ep 5/5)
In the fifth and final episode of our fashion-focused series, we're looking at how to apply circular design to fashion. Design will shape the fashion industry’s transformation to a circular economy. More than 80% of all environmental impacts from products are determined at the design stage. While traditional design focuses on considering and meeting the needs of the end user, circular design takes a much broader perspective, considering not only the user but the system within which the design will exist. To achieve a transition to a circular fashion industry requires unprecedented collaboration. In this episode, contributors to the Foundation’s upcoming Circular Design Guide for Fashion book join us to explore what circular design means for the fashion industry. - The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK charity working on business, learning, insights & analysis, and communications to accelerate the transition towards the circular economy. Find out more about our work here: www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org More about our work on fashion here.
