    Show Notes

    Much like with other show related podcasts this episode is recorded as a travel log starting with many of the highlights of the show and then driving into some specifics.  Overall the show focused on AI or Artificial Intelligence, not so much the Terminator, end of the world type of AI but rather the start of the Maxtrix and iRobot type.

    In place of Intel was a company called Neon that was creating artificial humans in the digital space.  These virtual avatars are indented to be digital assistants that can help you with all sorts of things from Yoga poses to cooking and just about anything you could imagine.  Interestingly enough that trend applied to other things like some new John Deere tech that would analyze what is going on in your crops and be able to apply the right chemical to just the areas that needed it instead of using an entire drum.  Saves them money and makes the crops safer.

    Of course Dennis loves his car and home audio so a visit to the North hall was needed to check out the cars, a really big subwoofer and a company that seemed to have dropped off the planet. Nakamichi.

    The rest of the show was focused mostly on company visits and the following gallery should help with the visuals.
