In this episode Daniela Duca, a former Jisc senior co-design manager1, and Kenji Takeda, director of the Microsoft Azure for research program, have a fascinating chat about some pretty big ideas; the equipment data project, post-quantum cryptography, big data, the Cambrian explosion, AI and cloud and quantum computing.
We also hear from Miranda Mowbray, lecturer in Computer Science at University of Bristol, who dispels the magic surrounding machine learning. She also discusses her work identifying a tax on computer networks, discovering previously undetected malware.
Daniela mentioned Zooniverse, Galaxy Zoo and Citizen science. While Kenji spoke about the quantum development kit, Microsoft AI school, Microsoft/Internet of Things smart water system in India and, of course, the excellent Microsoft quantum cat video.
