AI, machine learning, and neural networks are not new ideas. So what changed now? Over the last 5-6 years, advances in software, hardware, and scale have brought machine learning to the forefront, enabling new products and technologies. In this episode, Bob Friday, CTO of Mist, a Juniper Company, discusses the changes that have enabled his company and others to bring AI to the enterprise. We focus on four key questions:
- When did you start to see that AI was going to be a major force in the enterprise networking world?
- How have Google and other companies enabled AI through advances in open source software?
- How about hardware? There have been many advances over the last decade, from GP-GPUs to faster and lower-latency networking in storage. How has this enabled AI?
- How are large neural networks enabling AI in the enterprise?
