In this episode we start our extended dive into AI with Ed Yau, this is part 1 of 3.
Ed works as a Solution Architect at cloudThing, on behalf of a number of clients.
Having spent over 15-years in software development building different styles of Enterprise IT systems,
he is really excited about the potential for Machine Learning, Cognitive & Bot technologies which look to deliver more intelligent User Experiences (UX) for applications.
This is considering UX in the fullest sense, as a fullstack discipline.
In an area that is flooded with hype, Ed is here today to explain what developers need to know to get started with AI,
and what is happening in the evolving world of bot technologies.
Ed was last on the show back on episode 44 where we talked about Bots and how they were taking over the tech space,
just over a year later he's back today to give us more insight into the current world of AI.
