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!

  • Facebook shares fell after a WSJ report that CEO Mark Zuckerberg is becoming much more aggressive in how he manages the tech giant.
  • Apple shares dropped following a report the company has cut production for its newest iPhones.
  • Bitcoin also continued a year-long slide, hitting its lowest level of the year.

  • Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos told employees, in response to a question at an all-hands meeting last week, that the company is not “too big to fail.”
  • Bezos was asked a similar question at an internal meeting in March about Amazon’s size and the potential for government regulation.
  • Bezos is addressing the concerns as Amazon prepares to expand into two new headquarters locations in New York and Virginia.
  • Microsoft announced Wednesday it would acquire an Austin-based software product design and development studio called XOXCO.
  • XOXCO is known for Howdy, a bot for the popular Slack work chat app that helps schedule meetings, as well as Botkit, which provides development tools for the GitHub code-sharing service.
  • Microsoft has acquired several other AI startups this year, including Semantic Machines, Bonsai, and Lobe.
  • Microsoft also announced updates to its AI platform, including a new technology called Cognitive Services Containers.
CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey referred to as Frankenstein Jenkins or, more snappily, “Jenkinsteins” as teams add plug-ins to create a “gigantic, fragile master that falls apart”.
Dealing with these “Jenkinsteins” is therefore important.
This is perhaps the most aggressive analysis of what IBM must do…. I like it!!!
