AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning) and DL (Deep Learning) are some of the hottest IT buzzwords of our time. If you’re working in tech industry, chances are that you hear or read something about them almost every day. It looks like they are the answer to every question, and the solution to every problem, including wars and global hunger.

AI/ML is used in self-driving cars, but what about self-driving, self-optimising data centers? On the 19th episode of Virtual Stack Podcast, I’m joined by Greg Burk, Senior Staff Architect at VMware, and we discuss about AI, ML, and their use cases in today’s Enterprise IT, especially Self-Driving and Self-Optimizing Data Centers.
