A weekly podcast about the business of cloud computing, artificial intelligence and data science. Hosted by Derrick Harris.

Jul 6, 2017

In this episode of the ARCHITECHT Show, IBM Fellow and Watson Data Platform CTO Adam Kocoloski talks about the evolution of big data—from his days as an MIT physicist and co-founding Cloudant, to the application design trends dictating today's cloud data platforms. In between, Kocoloski touches on a variety of topics, including the fate of Hadoop, the promise of quantum computing, the role of specialized hardware for AI and big data, and the effects of marketing on selling the Watson technologies.

In the news segment, co-hosts Derrick Harris (ARCHITECHT) and Tom Krazit (GeekWire) talk about Baidu's rise in the cloud (and Nvidia's growing footprint), the cost-benefit analysis of data privacy re: DeepMind's recent troubles, and why any IPOing web company would still run on a single data center with no backup.
