Cool stuff on HoloLens 2 and Kinect…. but IBM get beat up a little in the press.
We discuss the past, present and future of Artificial Intelligence with industry leader, expert and entrepreneur, John Frémont. John was very candid about the opportunities as well as the competition in the space.
We definitely enjoyed (as we always do) waxing philosophical. John did a great job as we hovered over the “trough of despair”. He wasn’t scared one bit and is HUGELY optimistic. We hope he’s right!
Come watch and/or listen and find out why Tech Talk doesn’t have to SUCK!
