We deliver compelling information on technology very quickly by interviewing tech experts for a 360 degree view of each topic. Interviews are done in 5 minute "lightning rounds" so you can get the information -- and get on with your day. Topics include autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, cloud, 5G, robotics, mobile, privacy, IoT and more.
In this episode, we discuss open source software development with community members at the heart of the open source movement. IBM and O'Reilly Media offer a historical perspective on how open source overcame closed source/proprietary software and how popular development frameworks, such as Kubernetes and TensorFlow, are being utilized. We also speak with GitLab about open core software, which bridges free software with licenses.
In this episode, we look at how to leverage technology and applications to achieve financial freedom. We talk about ways that various demographics can increase savings and reduce debt, such as the self-employed, couples, students and people over 50. Startups from Twine, Catch and United Income weigh in on tough topics such as stagnating wages, student loan debt and how 4 in 10 Americans are not prepared for retirement while discussing how automation can help.
In this episode, we look at renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, and we also look at how we can bring energy to the moon and to mars for sustainable, human presence. Experts from NASA, Stanford and Intertrust's Modulus discus how to survive 14 days of darkness on the moon, how solar is disrupting traditional energy companies and how solar competes from an operational standpoint.
The energy industry is undergoing an important transformation driven by the introduction of renewables, deregulation, and increased attention to climate impact. Experts from Chevron, innogy Ventures and Schneider Electric discuss how this shift is further fueled by the internet and new advances in cloud computing, IoT and big data; all of which leads to the decentralization of energy and power.
Privacy experts discuss the General Data Protection Regulation, or the GDPR, one year after the regulations went into effect with candid interviews from Twilio, Intertrust and Meeco - three companies who are going above and beyond to honor privacy globally. While the press tends to focus on companies who do not follow privacy standards, this episode focuses on the companies and professionals who go to great lengths to protect your privacy.
This episode looks beyond smartphones to examine how machine connections will define the next era, what millimeter wave technology will do for urban areas, and how a recently discovered material, Graphene, can replace lithium ion batteries and silicon. We speak with leading experts from the GSMA, which is the world's mobile trade body with over 800 mobile operators, Qualcomm and Graphene Flagship about the devices of the future.
In this episode, we discuss the good AI will do, such as combat fraud and help to stop cyber bullying. We also discuss the flaws of AI, such as the cost to our privacy. Experts who build AI biometrics and behavioral analysis tools break down how facial recognition, including iris tracking and palm vein detection. We also discuss the unique way financial companies can detect if your phone was stolen and we talk about AI products that inform the stock market. Do not miss these candid interviews.
What does 5G, the new generation of wireless, mean for smart cities, the cloud as we know it, and most importantly, what will 5G do for me? In this episode, we discuss what will happen when applications and communications speed up with lower latency, including how this will affect hospitals, mobile devices, cloud data centers and real-world problems like solving a lack of visibility in burning buildings for firefighters.
Robotics can be a controversial issue. In this episode, we discuss what will happen when machines begin to think and act like humans. SoftBank, RoboKind and John Deere answer important questions including whether robots will take our jobs, how robots can improve the learning abilities of autistic children, and how to feed the world as the population continues to grow yet fewer people live in rural areas.
In this episode, we speak with three experts on the topic of autonomous vehicles. We discuss if autonomous vehicles are safe, if China will be the first to deploy autonomous vehicles and whether autonomous vehicles are just a bunch of hype or if they will be a reality in the near future.
