Director, writer, producer and star Bradley Cooper stops by Google HQ to discuss his directorial debut film, "A Star Is Born." Moderated by Eileen Naughton. "A Star Is Born" is now in theaters. About the film: “A Star Is Born” stars four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper helms the drama, marking his directorial debut. In this new take on the tragic love story, he plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer... until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons. The cast of “A Star is Born” also includes Andrew Dice Clay, with Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott. In addition to playing Ally, Gaga, who earned her Oscar nod for the song “Til It Happens to You” from “The Hunting Ground,” performs original songs in the film, which she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All the music is original and was recorded live. #AStarIsBorn #BradleyCooper #LadyGaga

Alexander Rose is Executive Director of the Long Now Foundation, an organization founded in 1996 to foster long-term thinking and responsibility in the framework of the next 10 millenia. He has been working on the 10,000 Year Clock for over 2 decades. Currently under construction inside a mountain in western Texas, the clock will be hundreds of feet tall and open to public viewing. The project is designed to suggest generational-scale questions: if a Clock can keep going for ten millennia, shouldn’t we make sure our civilization does as well? If the Clock endures after we are long gone, why not attempt other projects that require future generations to finish? Perhaps most importantly, as virologist Jonas Salk once asked, “Are we being good ancestors?” Moderated by Alex Sayde.

3 weeks ago En
Too many women and men die from easily preventable diseases due to lack of access to expert care. Smart medical devices leveraging smartphones can change that. One of the more tragic causes of death, cervical cancer, claims the lives of 300,000 women a year despite the fact that it can be easily treated for less than $28 if caught in the first 5 years. Ariel Beery, co-founder, and CEO of MobileODT shares how primary healthcare providers worldwide are using the Enhanced Visual Assessment (EVA) System, built on the back of a smartphone with AI/ML augmenting algorithms to screen women for cervical cancer without a need for laboratory tests and expensive infrastructure. As MobileODT's EVA System is used in 28 countries around the world, anonymous data from the examinations has been used for research purposes and contributed to research institutions and competitions to enable data scientists to develop new AI/ML approaches to assisting health providers in making better decisions at the point-of-care. Earlier this year, MobileODT and its partners proved it is possible to identify signs of cervical cancer and pre-cancer 20% better than a Pap smear, using no more than a visual image (no laboratories or chemicals required). This same approach has the potential to transform a large number of examinations - from cervical cancer to skin cancer, from oral disease to diabetic retinopathy. By replacing laboratory tests with point-of-care visual examinations powered by AI/ML, every woman and man will have access to the same level of healthcare expected by the most fortunate of us today.

Danielle Teller, M.D., a McGill, Brown, and Yale-trained doctor and former Faculty member at both the University of Pittsburgh and Harvard University -- who harbored a life-long love of writing and became a full-time author in 2013 -- discusses her book, "All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cindarella's Stepmother." Told from the perspective of Cinderella’s “evil” stepmother, "All the Ever Afters" challenges our assumptions and forces us to reevaluate what we think we know. Exploring the hidden complexities that lie beneath classic tales of good and evil, this lyrically told, emotionally evocative, and brilliantly perceptive novel shows us that how we confront adversity reveals a more profound truth about our lives than the ideal of “happily ever after.” It is a timely tale about empathy and perspective.

3 weeks ago En
Rowan Somerville discusses his new book 'Beat: The True Story of a Suicide Bomb and a Heart' which tells the story of the heart transplant that became a prism for the Israel-Palestine conflict. On June 1st 2001, a suicide bomb killed twenty-one young Israelis outside a nightclub in Tel Aviv. The next day, in an apparently retributive act of violence, an Israeli settler shot a Palestinian pharmacist, Mazan Al-Joulani, in the neck, rendering him brain dead. Out of this violence came an extraordinary act of humanity, when the family of Al-Joulani agreed to donate his heart to Yigal Cohen, a dying Israeli. The Irish Times called this book "a riveting, intelligent and scrupulously honest journey through the torment of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It runs the gamut of human behaviour, from blood-curdling barbarity to extraordinary generosity; a tour-de-force”. Rowan Somerville was born in London in 1966 and studied Literature at the University of Edinburgh. He has worked in film, television and radio. He is the author of two additional novels, 'The End of Sleep', shortlisted for the 2009 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and 'The Shape of Her' (2010).

3 weeks ago En
An inspiring guide from Dolly Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world (and yourself) better. Many of us believe in equality, diversity, and inclusion. But how do we stand up for those values in our turbulent world? The Person You Mean to Be is the smart, "semi-bold" person’s guide to fighting for what you believe in. Dolly reveals the surprising causes of inequality, grounded in the "psychology of good people". Using her research findings in unconscious bias as well as work across psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and other disciplines, she offers practical tools to respectfully and effectively talk politics with family, to be a better colleague to people who don’t look like you, and to avoid being a well-intentioned barrier to equality. Being the person we mean to be starts with a look at ourselves. She argues that the only way to be on the right side of history is to be a good-ish— rather than good—person. Good-ish people are always growing. Second, she helps you find your "ordinary privilege"—the part of your everyday identity you take for granted, such as race for a white person, sexual orientation for a straight person, gender for a man, or education for a college graduate. This part of your identity may bring blind spots, but it is your best tool for influencing change. Third, Dolly introduces the psychological reasons that make it hard for us to see the bias in and around us. She leads you from willful ignorance to willful awareness. Finally, she guides you on how, when, and whom, to engage (and not engage) in your workplaces, homes, and communities. Her science-based approach is a method any of us can put to use in all parts of our life. Whether you are a long-time activist or new to the fight, you can start from where you are. Through the compelling stories Dolly shares and the surprising science she reports, Dolly guides each of us closer to being the person we mean to be.

Peter Kohler, founder of The Plastic Tide project, and Dr Stefan Leutenegger, Lecturer in Robotics at Imperial College London, discuss how the ocean is under siege from a ever-increasing tide of waste, and how technology like machine learning and drones can help us fix the issue. Threatening not only a vital economic resource worth an estimated $5 trillion a year, but also humanity’s very own life support. The Plastic Tide initiative was started almost two years ago, with the aim of quantifying the problem using drone imagery of UK beaches and beyond: raised awareness and precise data will hopefully drive solutions at societal, political, and technological levels. They have collected a huge database of drone imagery around UK beaches last year, and a prototype algorithm developed already combines a deep-learning based plastic detection scheme in the images with geo-referenced mapping. The speakers will show early results and present related research in the space of localisation, mapping, and drone flight; and furthermore sketch the way forward to limit the plastic tide swamping our oceans.

Researcher Jeremy Sherman poses a huge question still unanswered despite all we've discovered in the physical and life/social sciences: what accounts for the difference between matter and mattering, cause-and-effect chemistry and means-to-ends life? Sherman distills his book Neither Ghost nor Machine: The Emergence and Nature of Selves, proposing a new solution – organisms prevent their own degeneration. He shows how this prevention could emerge from anything-goes chemistry at the origins of life and suggests implications for computer science. Get the book: https://goo.gl/7UoWur

The average lifespan of companies is shrinking rapidly - 15 years today, compared to 67 years nearly 100 years ago. By 2027, 75% of today's S&P 500 firms will be replaced by new firms. In an age when your car can outlive the company you bought it from, are lasting brands relics of the past? Mark Miller, founder of The Legacy Lab, and Lucas Conley, the author of Obsessive Branding Disorder, visit Google LAX to offer a provocative and counter-intuitive argument: in an always-on world that increasingly values overnight success, instant gratification and hyperactive short-term thinking, it is the leaders with long-term ambitions who will get ahead and make their mark. Miller and Conley share stories from legacy-minded brand leaders they met with during the creation of their book, Legacy In the Making: Building a Long-Term Brand in a Short-Term World.

After remarkable one-on-one interviews with Bill Gates, Maya Angelou, Steve Wozniak, Jane Goodall, Larry King, Jessica Alba, Pitbull, Tim Ferriss, Quincy Jones, and many more, Alex discovered the one key they have in common: they all took the Third Door. Life, business, success . . . it's just like a nightclub. There are always three ways in. There's the First Door: the main entrance, where 99 percent of people wait in line, hoping to get in. The Second Door: the VIP entrance, where the billionaires and celebrities slip through. But what no one tells you is that there is always, always . . . the Third Door. It's the entrance where you have to jump out of line, run down the alley, bang on the door a hundred times, crack open the window, sneak through the kitchen--there's always a way.
