Maybe I'm too critical -- and I don't watch much TV news -- but are folks able to watch something like this and really understand what's about to change with their TV service?
I'll give the reporter this much: When I left AT&T, my head was spinning a bit. It was a lot to take in, and he probably has to cover 55 other things so he hasn't been watching this stuff as much as we have.
The real reason I wanted to show off his clip? The tech expert for Channel 11 was reporting from the TV station's "Web center." What is a Web center and how do I get one?
I tried to follow this report but was distracted first by the yellow sweater vest (really? you need a sweater vest in Atlanta in late May?) and then by the live chat crawl. I hope someday my TV, which is getting smarter and smarter every day, will figure out how to banish crawls from my super deluxe HD video screen, so that I can pay more attention to what yellow sweater vest guy is saying.
Yes, the summer sweater in Atlanta is a tough sell.
I'll say this, though. The other journalists that were present were either tragically overweight or they looked homeless. So the Channel 11 reporter at least set a good example for us working media types.
Machine learning is primed to help service providers run more efficient and effective networks, but first the good ideas have to make their way from the lab to the real world – and that's a big challenge, according to the University of Chicago's Nick Feamster.
