TWF! with guests Dean and Sarah-Jane Gratton

For this episode of TWF!, we are talking about the technology topic that will, possibly, make the most significant and fundamental changes to both our business and personal lives since the dawn of the Internet. Our host and CIF CEO David Terrar interviews Dean Anthony Gratton and Sarah-Jane Gratton, well known tech influencers who have just published their book Playing God with Artificial Intelligence. I’m guessing it will be both controversial, and illuminating.

TWF! with David Terrar

For episode 16 of the 2024 season of our weekly show, TWF! (Tech Wave Forum), we focused on the primary research from Cloud Industry Forum (published 13th May). This is our annual “state of the cloud” report. This year it’s called “Tough times, but innovation springs internal” with the subtitle of “How cloud is the key technology enabler helping businesses innovate in a turbulent period”. Instead of the usual interview, our host and CIF CEO David Terrar summarises the report and its themes, which highlight cloud’s ubiquity, the amazing rate of adoption of GenAI, and the importance of cloud supporting this new era.

Our host and CIF CEO David Terrar interviews Fanny Bouton, OVHcloud’s Quantum Lead.
