Tech Experts Discuss the Future of Autonomous Vehicles: Podcast

Last year was a buzzworthy year for autonomous vehicles. The pedestrian death in Arizona raised concerns over safety while many AV OEMs slowed down production of advanced levels of automation due to regulatory issues. Meanwhile, China continues to push forward, faster than ever, in an AV race for commercial deployment. In addition, press headlines are not in agreement with analyst projections. Promises that driverless vehicles will be on the road this year are in sharp contrast with analysts who say AVs have entered the “trough of disillusionment” with anywhere from five to fifteen years before they will be commercially available.…

Pure Play Tech Stocks to Benefit from IaaS Growth

Hybrid is what will drive near future adoption for IaaS. This means security is still the dominant concern while data accuracy and productivity are the primary benefits to IaaS. Therefore, small and mid-cap companies that assist with either of these can benefit from IaaS growth. Below are a few of the more popular stocks in the cloud space.

This is one reason I continue to hammer on IaaS as a safe, secular bet. Companies are going through a major transition right now by transferring work loads into the cloud.
