MJFChat: How Can I Get Started With AI? - Audio Now Available

You can find a transcript of the recording, here.

We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management

Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.

In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed — and hopefully on the same day the interview is done — we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, May 27, is between me and Gary Pretty, Conversational AI Consultant at Mando and Microsoft MVP. The general topic of our chat is how tech pros can get started with AI using Microsoft technologies like the Bot Framework, Cognitive Services and more. Make sure to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

Microsoft has been stepping up the pace at which it’s making AI technologies available to developers and non-traditional developers alike. At Build earlier this month, Microsoft showed off plans for a new conversational engine it will be baking into Cortana and making available to others via its Bot Framework and Azure services. Microsoft has been working to recast itself in the intelligent agent space to a provider of enabling technology that any organization can use to build its own personalized agents. Pretty will discuss these technologies and more during our upcoming chat.

If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….

Thanks!
