Open-source stacks enabled software to eat the world. Some of the most innovative companies in the world are working on building an open-source stack for AI.

Dan Jeffries was there when the LAMP stack enabled software to eat the world. Perhaps you don’t know, or remember, what the LAMP stack is, but it's actually pretty important.

LAMP is an acronym made out of the initials of key open-source technologies used in software development - Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. These technologies were hotly debated back in the day. Today, they are so successful that the LAMP stack has become ubiquitous, invisible, and boring.

AI, on the other hand, is a hot topic today. Just like the LAMP stack turned software development into a commodity and made it a bit boring (especially if you're not a professional software engineer), an AI stack should turn AI into a commodity - and make it a bit boring, except maybe for data engineers. This is what Dan Jeffries is out to do with the AI Infrastructure Alliance (AIIA).

Orchestrate all the Things podcast: Connecting the Dots with George Anadiotis

I've got tech, data, and media, and i'm not afraid to use them.

My name is George Anadiotis, and i am a writer, a planner and a doer. I am an Onalytica Top 100 Influencer in Big Data and Cloud, a Knowledge Graph expert, and a P2P Foundation and ZDNet contributor, among other things.

Linked Data Orchestration is my brand. This podcast is where i share my work, as well as conversations with people who bring interesting news and views to the table.

Some might call this futurism; let's just say it's connecting the dots.

Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.

Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
