584: Brian McCarson, Intel’s Group VP of IoT, shares his perspective on the evolution of the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. Brian speaks to the increasing affordability and accessibility of both IoT and AI and how their development in other industries has brought it to the industrial sector. We talk about each service’s growth from something out of a science fiction novel available to large-scale enterprises to the ways in which AI and IoT have now intersected with and augmented the capabilities of small- and medium-sized businesses. Brian credits this evolution to open-source ecosystems where online innovators have helped improve the scalability of AI integration.
