In this episode of the ARCHITECHT Show, Condé Nast CTO Ed Cudahy discusses a wide array of topics, ranging from standardizing development across 20+ publications (thanks in part to Node.js and Amazon Web Services) to how the publishing giant is using computer vision to step up its game for consumers and advertisers -- especially for its fashion titles. Cudahy also talks about Condé Nast's use of the open source Presto technology for analyzing data, getting the paywall right financially and technologically, and much more.
This episode begins with an introduction to a new artificial intelligence startup called AI Reverie (disclaimer: I am an adviser), which is generating synthetic data for training deep learning models, by building photo-realistic environments. I speak with co-founder and CEO Daeil Kim, who was previously a data scientist at the New York Times.
