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

Sep 30, 2017

In this episode of the ARCHITECHT AI Show, Signe Brewster speaks with Andra Keay, managing director of Silicon Valley Robotics, about the current state of, well, robotics. Keay shares some deep insights into the question of what it really means to be a "robot" in 2017, as well as the trickier aspects of robotics economics (fundraising and monetizing) and the relationship between robotics research and the broader field of artificial intelligence.

In the news segment, co-hosts Brewster, Derrick Harris and Chris Albrecht discuss the recent O'Reilly AI conference; the potential for Slack to streamline communications (or test privacy boundaries) using AI; the responsibility of Facebook's humans to fix their algorithms; Intel's move into neuromorhpic processors; and the creepy effectiveness of robots that can get up after being pushed down.
