Woman: Remember that time when you took
notes during that meeting and then you couldn’t follow the meeting
’cause you were so busy taking notes? Or when your dad told you all 15
ingredients in his famous chili and then
you promptly forgot 12 of them? Or that time you recorded that two-hour
lecture and it turned into this? And then you couldn’t remember where to
find the part you needed to remember. It was at the beginning, right? Man: A model in which volatility is
inevitable– Woman: No, you know what, maybe it was at
the end of this long, nondescript bar. Man: The basic conceptual framework– Woman: Ugh. Everything would be so much
easier if recording got smarter. Like what if it could recognize and label
sounds as you record them? Wow, how about some applause? No, for real. Could it find applause? [music]
