Whether you’re just looking for a good tech conference to attend, or a tech company looking for a way to get their name out there, the VentureBeat conference is the place to go. This year’s conference, held in Los Angeles, was a huge success with lots of high profile announcements. Among those announcements was one that really stood out: Kyle Wiggers has been named the new CEO of GitHub, the popular cloud storage service. This is a huge honor, but is it the right move?
Founder of the blog and a senior reporter at TechCrunch, Kyle Wiggers is a well-rounded writer with a special interest in artificial intelligence. This past year he’s been writing about the latest and greatest in gadgets and tech, but has also been looking into the big data trend that is changing the world. As a result, he’s learned a thing or two about AI, including why it’s important and what it’s doing for us. His latest article on the topic outlines the ways in which AI is changing the way we live, work and play.
A number of startups are proving that AI can be used to power products and services that can save the planet. For example, a company called Confluent has raised $125M Series D funding led by Sequoia Capital. Confluent is also the company behind the open source streaming data project Apache Kafka. While Confluent isn’t the first to build an AI-powered streaming data platform, it is the first to do so in a way that’s open and available to all. Moreover, the company’s latest product, Apache Cassandra, is a data analysis platform that can handle billions of data points in real-time.
Besides writing for VentureBeat, Kyle Wiggers has also been published in Digital Trends, Silicon Valley and other gadget blogs. He has a special interest in artificial intelligence and lives in New York and Brooklyn with a partner. When he’s not writing, he dabbles in piano.
