    Making the Internet More Human

    Making the Internet More Human

    The emergence of digital spaces augmenting social interactions is taking over the planet. Avatars represent the true identity of the most important contributor to the internet. What happened to learning about the actual human being behind the keyboard or smartphone?
    But what if we could make the internet more human? What if it felt like stepping into someone’s front door? Where you see their pictures, their books, their records, and get a good feel for who they are as a HUMAN, not an avatar.
    Matt Shackleford is doing just that. Matt is a co-founder at Abode, and was a guest on the latest episode of Application Modernization. He talked to us all about:
    The startup he’s launching aimed at bridging the gap between Web 2 and Web 3
    Why he’s aiming to make the internet more human
    How we can break free from being “content curators” and be “humans” online again

    How Suited Leverages AI to Improve the Hiring Process

    Traditional hiring processes often place a lot of undue emphasis on GPA and alma mater, data points that, generally, aren’t very predictive of future performance.

    Aaron discusses how Suited works, how the company helps customers implement better hiring data practices, and what the future holds for technology like AI and ML. 
    We discuss:
    Leveraging AI to deliver better hiring outcomes
    Onboarding, setting expectations, and defining KPIs
    Explainable AI and the future of hiring and performance management

    How Hazelcast Delivers Real-Time Data Processing

    How Hazelcast Delivers Real-Time Data Processing

    Hazelcast is a real-time data platform that can run anywhere—from the edge to the data center to the cloud. In other words, it brings the computation to the data rather than moving the data to the computation. 
    That enables the ability to connect insights to the real-time actions of the customer. 
    Want to hear more about it? 
    John DesJardins , Chief Technology Officer, and Mark Santos , Vice President of Worldwide Business Development, join the show to discuss how Hazelcast can accelerate business decisions, the role that Kubernetes plays in modern data processing, and why it’s important to have a good partner ecosystem.  
    We discuss:
    The variety of use cases for Hazelcast
    Hazelcast’s strong alliances with other independent software vendors and hyperscalers
    How Kubernetes is changing the way we process data
    Advice for an up-and-coming technologist
