Beth Kindig is launching a tech podcast called Tech Lightning Rounds, sponsored by Intertrust Technologies. The goal of the new tech podcast is to deliver information quickly in short “lightning rounds” so you can learn about new technologies while you commute, get ready in the morning, while you’re at the gym, or wherever else your busy life takes you.

How John Deere Plans to Feed the World with Robotics

In episode 2 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig goes directly to the source of robotics expertise and hosts discussions with technologists who specialize in the field. Interviews are held in “lightning round” format, which are rapid interviews with tech experts for immediate depth on each topic. In episode 2, Zach Bonefas from John Deere discusses why it is crucial for the agriculture industry to adopt robotics. The global population will reach 10 billion people by 2050 and this will require growing fifty percent more food than we are growing right now. Meanwhile, the number of farmable acres is decreasing…

SoftBank: Increase ROI with Robotics and IoT Automation (Podcast)

The goal of automating entire processes, rather than individual tasks, is to remove the human from the equation in order to increase gross margin for return on investment (GMROI). As Kass Dawson of SoftBank discusses, the more inventory a retailer has in the store that is not selling, the less they’re making money, and they then lose out on an opportunity through over-indexed inventory…

PODCAST: New episode with Robotics Experts from SoftBank, RoboKind and John Deere

Robotics can be a controversial topic as the advancement in automation is seen as a threat to employment. Beth Kindig interviews Kass Dawson of SoftBank Robotics and asks “Will robots take jobs,” after he explains how SoftBank intends to remove the human from the equation in retail. The podcast also features John Deere, who is using robotics to combat one of the biggest threats to our food supply — which is the growing population. Once we reach 10 billion people, food supplies become questionable. Lastly, Richard Margolin of RoboKind introduces his robot, Milo, who is helping autistic children increase engage 40x more in classrooms when compared to a human teacher.

PODCAST: Are Autonomous Vehicles Overhyped? Will China Be the First to Deploy AVs? Intel Answers.

In episode 1, Jill Sciarappo, Director of Autonomous Driving at Intel, is candid as she discusses areas where AV companies can improve on safety and how a new coalition called PAVE can help. PAVE stands for the Partners of Automated Vehicle Education initiative, which was launched at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, to help bring “realistic, factual information to policymakers and the public.”

Jill and Beth also chat about the confusion consumers have around AV and why press headlines need to be a little more accountable. Jill is from Arizona, where a lot of AV testing occurs, and Jill raises the question: “What level of best practices or validation do we need to have these companies prove they can accomplish before we let them on our city streets?” She goes on to answer this question in the podcast by drawing parallels to the various ways this has been solved in the past.

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.…
