A Parallel Journey to the Frontlines of Industry 4.0
Before broken supply chains and resilient manufacturing were top of mind globally, forward-thinkers were already focused on solutions for digitizing these old-line industries that drew from their unique backgrounds. Saar Yoskovitz applied his academic research around speech recognition on industrial machines to detect and predict malfunctions. Lior Susan parlayed his experience fueling innovation for one of the world's largest electronics manufacturers into a career investing in digital transformation.
Computer-Vision Vigilance for Loved Ones
Nearly all falls in memory-care centers go unwitnessed, resulting in an average discovery time of 40 mins. Worried his mother may one day succumb to the history of Alzheimer's in her family, George Netscher paused his Ph.D. work at UC Berkeley's top-ranked AI research lab to launch SafelyYou, a startup focused on detecting and preventing falls with the use of computer vision and AI. George and his COO Shirley Nickels join Eclipse's Justin Butler to share their inspiring passion for elevating dementia care.
Modernizing On-Premises Data Center Infrastructure
Today's mainstream businesses need a combination of both cloud and “on premises” infrastructure as much as tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft and Google. But the server racks they buy from traditional OEMs still run on software and hardware based on designs from the 1980s and '90s. So say industry veterans Bryan Cantrill and Jessie Frazelle, founders of Oxide Computer Company, which is building a modern, vertically integrated on-prem solution to allow enterprises to own, not rent, essential cloud capaci
Accelerating Discovery: Supercomputing Unleashes the Power of AI
Andrew Feldman, whose company Cerebras Systems makes the world’s largest computer chip to accelerate grand artificial-intelligence applications, discusses what it takes to launch a generational company, and where the biggest entrepreneurial opportunities lie as the AI revolution unfolds.
In conversation with Eclipse's Kushagra Vaid, Andrew describes taking on big challenges and explains that deep-tech builders would do better to fail in pursuit of doing something extraordinary than think incrementally.
Digital Transformation Defined
Our first episode is packed with first-hand insights into how our economy and bedrock industries are being transformed by autonomous systems, cloud computing, machine learning and other innovations. Kushagra Vaid and Lior Susan of Eclipse Ventures demystify digital transformation by discussing how these advanced technologies are being applied in the real world, through companies like Bright Machines and Reliable Robotics, which, respectively, embody the future of smart manufacturing and commercial aviation.
Refreshing and insightful podcast
Very interesting to hear how digital transformation is happening in "old" industries that can completely change our economy, put in simple easy to understand terms/examples. Similar to how TSLA upended the 300 year old auto industry.. Looking forward to future episodes!
