Intel Nervana Devcloud with Naveen Rao & Scott Apeland

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

In this episode, I talk to Naveen Rao, VP and GM of Intel’s AI Products Group, and Scott Apeland, director of Intel’s Developer Network. It’s been a few months since we last spoke to Naveen, so he gives us a quick update on what Intel’s been up to and we discuss his perspective on some recent developments in the AI ecosystem.

Scott and I dig into Intel Nervana’s new DevCloud offering, which was announced at the conference. We also discuss the Intel Nervana AI Academy, a new portal offering hands-on learning tools and other resources for various aspects of machine learning and AI.
