Episode 85 – Interview with Hypergiant Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, John Frémont

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!

  • As the digital economy continues to grow, companies and individuals are not taking cybersecurity seriously enough, according to Erik Brynjolfsson, director at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy.
  • Combating cyber threats “boils down to prioritizing at a higher level,” Brynjolfsson said.
