4:12 am
trying to joins us live now from what is iris and he divides opinion abroad as well as the opinion at home tell us about the sort of reception up balls and has received that. well he's been in this the presidential palace behind me for much of the day talking to president of argentina marty makary they talked about the usual things that presidents tend to talk about on these visits cruising border cooperation trade deals environmental issues but the main issue the one dominating everything has been venezuela there are tens of thousands of venice waiters have crossed into brazil many of them have come to argentina that is the issue that they've been discussing both of them we're talking about a great democracy in venezuela what they both mean is that end to the nicolas maduro regime they both support the self declared interim president who are white all so
4:13 am
they want to see measures put in place to ensure a regime change in venezuela we've not seen much yet in the way of. opposition to his visit you could maybe see some posters behind me saying argentina rejects bolsa noddle and what they say is his message of hate and we've had a few brazilians resident in argentina marching with human rights groups in this plaza where we're standing at the moment but there is a deep demonstration programs for later in the day in about 2 or 3 hours time a music festival which will incorporate l.g.b. tea groups groups in argentina human rights and environmental groups all coming together to they serve dinner to they say to express solidarity with brazil's with the brazilians who are against those messages that we've been spread around around the continent and he certainly taken his time to get there we know that bolton are is unconventional as president usually argentina would be

put into action thank you very much and one is our is daniel. leaning blah soaring steel and concrete columns these are the usual things that come to mind when you think of skyscrapers but in future the world's great cities may have skylines built out of a different material would an architect from around the globe on meeting in the u.s. to discuss just that from portland oregon john hendren reports. if a new generation of rogue architects has their way the era of the concrete and steel skyscraper might be over the future they say lies in a millennia old building material would challenge is actually in the believe it or not not structural it's more of a psychological barriers of getting over there were working on the new buildings are made with cross laminated timber stronger because the layers of wood are stacked in opposite directions the technology has been used for years in europe wooden buildings like the airy 80 story river beach project in chicago might just
4:16 am
be a blueprint for a new era in architecture the reason this is kind of exploding right now is because it's an engineered what technology that uses small diameter trees but are combined to make massive panels. wooden buildings go up faster and cheaper a concrete floor takes at least 2 weeks to dry for each story timber weighs 80 percent less than concrete so it takes fewer trucks to deliver the wood which is cut in the factory in snapp's together with not a saw on site but there's another more pressing reason to use wood timber buildings are greener both ice caps are melting in the storms are getting worse it we all have to step forward and do what we can and in my profession what i can do is change my material choice for what i'm going to build with and build with something that's more socially and environmentally responsible the manufacture of concrete and steel emits planet warming carbon dioxide would absorbs carbon actually

cleaning the air i fell in love with a building i love their windows the view is at 29 meters this is the tallest cross laminated timber building in the united states but the architect who designed it is already designing another one at 137 meters and he says with these materials the sky's the limit the growing industry faces to nagging questions is it deforesting the planet they say by using smaller trees from certified renewable forests there would supply is sustainable and what about fire architects a wooden buildings can be as fire safe as any other is treated mass timber char's rather than burns. the biggest open question is whether builders and consumers will buy into the idea of living in a wooden building towering into the sky john hendren al-jazeera portland oregon.

4:21 am
welcome to the stream i'm really could be today we look at how millennial is have the potential to revolutionize agriculture in africa and ask what's needed to make farming jobs cool in your thoughts through twitter and you tube. and. africa has about 2 thirds of the world's uncultivated farmland but precious few people are choosing agricultural careers for years young people across the continent have seen white collar jobs as
4:22 am
a mark of success with farming often viewed as an unstable and precarious existence but now a social media campaign fronted by nigerian musician mr and choreographer sherry silver aims to show that farming means freedom. i mean.
4:23 am
you can't help but dance a little bit of the campaign is called our future is here and is led by the international fund for agricultural development or found people around the world have answered the challenge from mr easy and sherry to dance for change and posted videos on tech talk and instagram for more on the campaign sherri silver joins us from los angeles as well as being an award winning dancer and creative director she is advocate for roll you will also hear from. a coffee farmer and entrepreneur who leads communal shambo coffee and tanzania he joins us from berlin amanda my is a farmer and advocate for youth in cultural algo in agricultural initiatives she's in nairobi and welcome to the stream everyone knows cherie i want to get started with you because a lot of people in our community probably know your work you are the creative force
4:24 am
behind the moves in this viral music video child this is america it addressed racism it addressed gun violence it won awards and now you're using your moves performing what led to this campaign. so my roots are in farming my grandfather was a farmer he had cows and goats and my grandmother would yams and she still has been on the trees so you know it's personal for me and i throughout cameroon when. you know i met some farmers and they just inspired me and i felt like i had to get involved to let the world know that farming can actually and global hunger because through farming and and growing crops is where we begin. yeah i just have to be involved that idea of having to be involved amanda i know you had
4:25 am
a similar moment when you were out of conference and you realize the linkage between farming and humanity you talk to us about what it was for you that sparked your interest and why you should get involved. ok so 1st and foremost. i would caution is the bedrock of our existence because without food we all stop and we realize that that like in kenya whenever we have fun mining or drought it's considered and national disaster and having that in with the agricultural finance corporation i came to realize that indeed farming is very very important and the young person can indeed play a rule in changing this narrative because it's food we have the power to. yet we see views like this i want to share this with all of you this is from. on twitter who says we from this part of the world have been tune from childhood to
4:26 am
believe that the farmer is a poor person and a literate or a dropout making it the least attractive thing to the child growing up what are some of the things that are being put in place to change that perception so i'm going to give this one to you because you are a farmer. how do you change that view is this something that you had to deal with in your own life. thanks very for having me and thanks for the. great. what was just. a couple days ago it was probably between me and. and one of. you don't know. because they. asked me what's make job and this is. and that's that was the 2nd question. and i think we need to take it for ownership what do you want to be i mean you've
4:27 am
got to be a professional and you can be anything you want to be as long as you give me. your respect and does a professional role i think you're going to be anything they want to be so. i think one of our community members would agree with that so i want to play a video comment from king jordan i'm audie he's a dancer in lagos nigeria and here is what he said at the string hello guys in jordan for black stances he did as he just seemed like he must have been if you so funny because so many between you sort suffer to set innate. disaffection lack of shelter because they must see the simple life on me because hip soap little woman in my family we can help create more house some more food for younger children my family so let's all help to increase funding because of all the people it's a place it's more from less of you. so cherie he and his group actually
4:28 am
participated in their campaign you can see them there so this is a dance for change challenge he's with the blocks dancers in lagos and they posted this video from his dance group to talk to us about what you feel when you see people taking them on clearly they know the importance of this that they have been taking your message on. you and saying it's really important for her as we mentioned farming is often seen and unglamorous but it's not just about you know working in a field it's actually about entrepreneurship as well because it doesn't just stop growing crops and feeding your family but you can actually feed your community through this and i think that's really important and africa has so much untouched land so you know we should be we should be producing more instead of importing more . but yes for me it means a lot to see young people taking this on and being
4:29 am
a voice for the often forgotten use in farms that don't necessarily have the plant all to give their views and the more you get involved the more that policymakers and leaders can invest in the early years so you are in cameroon as you mentioned you were you were carrying out dance workshops were you hearing from people the farmers entrepreneurs that you were talking to what were some of their challenges were they telling you. yes so some of the challenges that for example being in the rule area the words often though they would be able to produce things but then when it rains because they're one of the roads on the pavement they will not be able to transport. the goods to the city. another thing i think is like young people they want to have on they want to enjoy themselves they want to go to the cinema they you know they want to enjoy the money that they make from farming so sometimes they don't have the resources for example internet connection and the
4:30 am
technologies to you know make them want to stay in the rue areas and instead they'll feel like they need to eat but i definitely think technology was one of the issues that was. i want to share with our guests this from her piece she says i took up farming a year and a half ago mainly because i was tired of city life and i needed a more natural way now i've realized the potential it has i'm currently designing a model that speaks to africa that is one tweet i want to share with you this next one though this is from someone who says out of kenya many people there have left farming like for me in kenya the government isn't doing enough many of our crops are rotting and some after harvest we've got no where to take them because the government is still importing stuff it's sickening to me so you see the the 2 sides of that spectrum there amanda talked to us about what this person says they were facing in kenya the idea of crops rotting things not being grown there are things being imported are those issues that you've seen. yes that's true that
4:31 am
indeed the whole value chain is not transparent 8 and 2 we don't have into connecting parts and we find that on the other side of the spectrum fungus grow without the consumers side of things and then we also have some punitive built if i may call it that really punish the farmer and we have even a time that on social media we had the hash tag save agra sector because of some bills that were passed for instance one was a not applying organic meat and money on your farm of which was quite punitive and then we also have the problem with infrastructure and cartels so when farmers grow and they don't have a way to get their product the produce to the markets you find that there's an influx of these products and either it's an in-flight or
4:32 am
a sky city and we find that the family often suffers when that happens so also the government itself is not really a good buy we've had several instances we have fun as have not been paid especially for maize it has been a challenge in kenya we've had maize rotting in our silos so it's been quite a challenge for taking care of or yeah yeah i think sometimes we put too much pressure for governments and i think we've never heard of the accountants about the government interfering with lawyers and that you know that i think when you start setting up a search of what. we ship ownership transferred various markets different opportunities are you going to improve your crop. are. fragile going to different ways i think there's a certain limit you those who have to take responsibility. that's
4:33 am
living in the image that yeah it's similar. to go to schools and. they will. go back. to our generation i don't think. so one of the traits that i read earlier was from nicola who was explaining why people in kenya are leaving the farming industry in his perspective and he says unfortunately for him he's already sold his farm to a real estate agent so he's out of the game but this person this is tried to he says the biggest challenge for them in farming in africa is balancing production versus available markets we have to come up with a system of linking farmers with markets and help them plan their production accordingly this will make farming attractive to the youth a man did you want to take that one on. yes that you know the part i mean it's
4:34 am
and markets where they can actually sell their goods yes so 1st of all production has to be consumed. so 1st we see the growing crops for the sake of growing crops so they will grow they will have this and then they'll have not least take their produce so that's a this scenario the we also have a lot. you know inconsistency is in the market so you find that people will produce but then when it comes to the market they're cut tells and one way also the young people can come into address that is we have the rule of i.c.t. we have an online platform we have fun as can directly advertise our market their goods we also have the rule of social media and we have also apps that where it can actually advertise and make. also this family groups that onli that can help
4:35 am
address that and in that way also the young people can be in fault because we in the digital era and most of the people who use tech are young people so that's also one of the ways that can be used to address those challenges you know we've got this reform of bed this is an interesting idea here sherry i'll give this to you about says this is no fact this is their anecdote but from the look of things some young africans believe farming is equal to suffering i want to help this point of view my parents grew up as poor farmers they moved to the city and their story did make me look down on farming so sherry you mentioned that your grandparents for farmers ever something that you think was passed down as a glamorous way of life or a way of life that maybe your parents thought that they would want to enter or be as far away from this possible. so i wouldn't want to use my for example my grandfather's an example because he loved the rule life he loved just. how that was
4:36 am
simple he didn't need all the stuff that young people need young people need a lot but. what i can say is that. you know it's our job to change farming and the perspective of it as young people and i met this guy gabriel who's a 26 year old farmer in cameroon and he wanted to buy these parents a house and buy himself a house and at the time when i met him he had a 1000 chickens and then i think he wanted to expand to the common cold princip so clearly there is money in farming gabriels not all. so i like about avian the idea that there is money in this i think there are other people i work ties i was like really i mean go back and saw a farm in rwanda and so you're surprised you're probably not alone in that kind of go ahead. because. the beatles
4:37 am
downtown. in any case may just be do not think. that's very spent most of their childhood and. to see it because there will be some time. when they made a decision that i'm going to sell simply employee. because i think everything in this city that i do actually use. is indeed been a huge crime that we are sort of like to get into their freedoms that is not being grew up and it's the fish in the kitchen and willingness to sort of like take yourself from not be something and push it the most days they want to see a dream happening in a day that's what every post is all about education and. so there. you go ahead. i like what he said about putting in the have to we
4:38 am
must be really careful about not exceeding too much to one site yes you want to make agriculture look at attractive but also it's not a genie in a bottle a rubber koofi a rich so just like any profession any industry you need to work at it you need to be smart about this thing and also karumba alluded to being professional about some of you know how the culture is done so by the fact that we have a young people in the front line and sherry cells and people look even at me and say are you really in agriculture and they don't believe it because he is speaking english he dressed well so that's also changing the sections slowly but definitely surely so when you talk about changing perceptions i want to share with our audience something else that might be might be doing that now if you're thinking about a career in farming this might be for you this 2017 clip is from
4:39 am
a hit kenyan reality show called don't lose the plot which for people with little or no farming experience it's worked out they worked on a plot of land in a race to become champion hell up. 4 young families from kenya and tanzania have been chosen to put their families kids to the ultimate test over the next 9 months this full take to the bank. challenge to open minds to big pharma is given one because of. the success of. the most profitable sustainable farming gets away with. this dixon line will take. care of that you are already a farmer but do you think that things like this will entice your friends and your colleagues into joining that lifestyle taking out farming. those that
4:40 am
face intense and you know everybody used to say. it ended up raising a. lot so. on. talk about. these things and most of those people. and those are some of the people who has a bad name because. as any job you know from a distance and you never do any job and. if you do you need to be. it's big so you need you need to do it you know a long way to see the results. and in addition to committing there some of our community says you need mentorship so this is casey who says effective education on what crops are suited for which soils and also adequate
4:41 am
mentorship programs is needed it's not enough to simply give the youth land but you also have to equip them with the knowledge make farming the in thing and encourage innovation and eco friendly farming so amanda how do you go about doing that ok to sell one this and in the information we have there will. collaborative partnerships and in kenya we have the climate smart and punchy youth network who have part of hosted by the act which is a research institute and their sole mandate is to give you no sense if it dates are on their dad knew. they come up with so many cents if acknowledged to have a climate risk profile and all of this is a bit too much for the young person to digest so we come in and use social media and actually tweet some of this information so you will chunks and also find a way to share this risk profiles to young people in the various in kenya we have
4:42 am
counties so come to specific climate risk profiles there will also aid the farmer in what's going on concerning the environment concerning the new or innovative ways farming approaches climate smart funny practices and also we have a group. and what where as young people in agriculture where we share and we have this knowledge platform where we bounce ideas with each other and whenever there are opportunities to attend capacity building workshops we actually put it out there and have people sign up and attend those trainings. that are driven agriculture here on twitter says to a good percentage of people agribusiness is not yet a profession and in most cases it's reserved for older people this means that the technology and innovation harbored by recent graduates and young people is hardly actually ever tapped into agriculture itself so by so you're trying to get in there
4:43 am
after amanda was done what do you make of that. actually both of the 2 it's been what some of those. ready we. both will technology in talking about let's just taking this approach. how to take on by the data a huge drop in technology development globally and i hope one day i will sentence and the people that. i. think that's that think of that mission think. i'd be take the take you know thousands of people going to these hearings people then seeing a bunch of them be profession people and when you talk you think that because. they're so girls you may find some of these graduates who are graduating from schools they can develop so they can find solution that because she was that
4:44 am
developed that's what we need we need to bring that technology into it because we need to find ways brought the software that's been its promise we've tried. foods and things like that so there is a broader way of looking at the college and not just you holding it it's sort of like some seeds on the hand in both lighting that line so that white approach. and cherry i see you nodding their weekly office suite from the do to who says yes they need access to information they need capital they need a ready market patience is key farming is not a walk in the park an aspiring farmer should be ready to encounter the gains and losses along the way so how do you go about even getting that entrepreneurial mindset we're almost at the end of the show here but i'm interested in your final thoughts. so you know having visited some of the programs at all working on i know is that they give training on mock it saying which is really important

people need to know how they're going to sell and the other roles involved. said it's about that and the no ship side i think that's how you make it a business but most mostly wilton is education and i think that there are pros and cons in every type of business even with me going into dawn's i have to be prepared to lose and or to gain you know the most important thing is just if you're going to do it put in your all and i don't see why you would not succeed. thank you so much sherry silver amanda no my about what he obama you remember thank you for joining us online as well now remember you can also be part of the dance for change campaign and support young farmers across africa just send your routines through tick-tock we'll leave you with some for a little inspiration. when you get. 60 votes to get some. votes in.

the u.s. and france along with other world leaders have been in northern france for the 75th anniversary of the d.-day landings around $300.00 elderly veterans attended the event to remember those who fought to liberate europe from nazis and during a speech to the crowd emanuel macron called for global unity praising the achievements of multilateral organizations such as nato and the e.u. . and that's one of the story a german nurse who murdered dozens of his patients with lethal injections has been sentenced to life in prison meals hogle is thought to be one of germany's most prolific serial killers is known to have killed 87 patients in a 5 year period 2005 police suspect he might have selected more than 200 victims at random the judge described his killing spree as in comprehensible. coming up next the rise of artificial intelligence and the effect it's having on global inequality that story in the big pitch at which starts now.

you're over the next kind of length of a pint or so i will talk to i guess about ai and whether. this is our family and. they are subsistence farmers and they live in a village in yemen al bayda province. in september of 2012 an american drone hit a shuttle of shoppers going to market killing 12 civilians and absolutely 0 militants. you're.

this is the knowledge ob or during the celebrations for the wedding of his eldest son is brother in law salim gives. his sermon denounced al qaida denounce militancy he said it was spreading a cancer of violence across the yemeni society and he said that everything that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is doing was totally contrary to islam. a couple of days later a couple of young men unknown to the villagers come and ask to speak to silent selling goes down with a local policeman speaks of the man an american drone kills. you're . investigated tons of strikes like this very well documented cases of attacks on innocents and we started to ask ourselves. why did these kinds of mistakes keep getting made. my name is cory kreiter i mean human rights lawyer.
4:55 am
was my client in 2013 i set out to understand how members of faisal's family could be killed by mistake by the united states. but what i found goes far beyond drone strikes in yemen targeting by data analysis by what's called machine learning is just one small part of how computers order the world. from the way we work to health care to how we're police part official intelligence is raising urgent questions about the balance of power and our power to challenge it. this is the world according to ai.

there's a lot of debate and a lot of hype about ai these days but we're not talking about just self-aware computers are a way it's not just being used as a kind of when it chess or when it go or translate a document as that it's being used to kind of predict things about all of us. the way we talk about the way people talked about patent medicines at the end of the 19th century there were things that were actually medicines but at the same time people were pressing the oil out of snakes mixing it with opium and buffalo dung and selling it as medicine. communities particularly vulnerable communities children people of color women are often characterized by these systems and quite misrepresent. of ways. marginalized communities are experimented upon and they're on the frontlines sees technological systems the frontlines of harm they're also on

the front lines. rebellion and refusal. in 1041 the world was a war. you're. germany and the axis powers looked to have the upper hand against allied forces. one of the advantages they gave the nazis a crucial edge was secret communications. the germans used an encryption device called the enigma machine to encode their messages. cracking enigma was difficult and time consuming but if encrypted messages could be decoded quickly it could lead to a decisive shift in the war. the allies desperately needed a faster decryption machine. spearheading the drive to

build one was british mathematician alan turing. the origins of of ai as we know it today was during the 2nd world war was chairing this work on the and make my machine. was the 1st one really to think about it the idea of the computer as a full machine a machine that could think like a human. cheering built a device using new electro mechanical technology that increase the rate at which intercepted messages could be decoded. it was a huge breakthrough accelerating the allied victory bringing forward the end of the 2nd world war. and marking the beginning of machine intelligence. artificial intelligence really was growing in britain under the name machine intelligence and in the us there were starting to be a small number of people who were really getting involved in this seeing this as an

important thing for the future. in 1956 in the summer at dartmouth a workshop was held was run by people like marvin minsky john mccarthy and that event really was sort of the american birth of artificial intelligence and in fact the term artificial intelligence was used in their proposal so that's really where the shift from calling it machine intelligence to artificial intelligence happened . marvin minsky was an american mathematician and cognitive scientist his friend john mccarthy was a professor of mathematics at dartmouth college in the us. it was at dartmouth and $956.00 that mccarthy organized a summer long research project focusing on machine intelligence. it would become part of a i folklore and the place where the term artificial intelligence was 1st coined it would also bring it to the attention of the u.s.

military. in those days the military which was the principal source of funding for computer science research and if you went into the funders and said you know we're going to make these machines smarter than people someday and whoever isn't on that ride is going to get left behind and big time so we have to stay ahead of this and boy you got funding like crazy as the defense department took over more of the funding the question started to being asked you know but what can we do with it now . the u.s. department of defense had its own research arm called the advanced research projects agency arpa the push for developing a i was driven by the logic of the cold war any technological advantage america could get over the soviet union was pursued through our. the new field of artificial intelligence was flush with money and confidence about what it could achieve. but there were competing ideas about how a.
