The Data Stack – October 2014 Intel® Chip Chat Podcast Round-up

In October we continued to archive livecast episodes from the Intel Developer Forum with episodes covering robotics and the progress towards artificial intelligence, software defined infrastructure and intelligent data centers, and emerging technologies in the cloud computing industry. If you have a topic you’d like to see covered in an upcoming podcast, feel free to leave a comment on this post!

Intel® Chip Chat:

  • Meet Jimmy, the Robot Intel Employee – Intel® Chip Chat episode 347: In this archive of a livecast from IDF, Intel Futurist Brian David Johnson stops by with a special guest, Matt Trossen, the CEO of Trossen Robotics. We’re talking to them about the 21st Century Robot Project, which uses open source hardware and software and 3D printing to make customizable robots driven by apps and connected to other devices for an ecosystem of computation. Trossen Robotics makes the Intel® Edison powered Humanoid Exoskeleton and a 3D printer makes the robot skin, giving makers a platform to start from when innovating with robotics.

  • Intelligent Infrastructure for the Digital Services Economy – Intel® Chip Chat episode 348: In this archive of a livecast from the Intel Developer Forum, Johnathan Donaldson (@jdonalds), the GM of Software Defined Infrastructure in the Cloud Platforms Group at Intel, stops by to talk about building intelligent infrastructure for enhanced platform and capabilities awareness, as well as dynamic workload placement and configuration. In a digital services economy, intelligent infrastructure is critical for development cycles and time to market. For more information, visit and search for software defined infrastructure.
  • Building Data Centers with Intelligence – Intel® Chip Chat episode 349: In this archive of a livecast from the Intel Developer Forum, we’ve got three great interviewees discussing the intelligent data center. Das Kamhout, a Cloud Orchestration Architect and Principal Engineer at Intel; Scott Carlson, an Information Security Architect for PayPal; and John Wilkes, a Principal Software Engineer at Google are on hand to talk about building, scaling, securing, and adding an intelligent software layer to modern data centers. For PayPal, a top priority is how to protect the money flow and retain customer trust. Google focuses on building smart systems that can scale massively and offer high reliability.
