Michael I. Jordan, the 2020 IEEE John von Neumann Medal recipient, does a podcast interview with TWIML AI here (This Week in Machine Learning and AI, https://twimlai.com/). It is now also published on YouTube video. In it, Jordan discusses the economics of Machine Learning and the different perspectives of how he wishes ML be used but not misused. He also gives advice to young professionals.
2020 IEEE Edison Medal recipient Frede Blaabjerg on Embedded Computing Design (https://www.embedded-computing.com/automotive/madpower) starts with a discussion with hosts Brendan Lewis and Rich Nass about whether EVs are actually better for the environment or not, and then call on Frede’s expertise to discuss the opportunities and implications silicon carbide and gallium nitride are bringing to the EV world, among other markets. Frede covers what these materials offer that silicon MOSFETs don’t and discusses what the future of the power industry may look like with the further adoption of these materials.
